it is probably not the water heater that is frozen but pipes in the area. Close the door leave the electric heater on and open a valve to let water trickle when it starts to flow.feel the pipe on the hot side of the heater if it is warm it is not the heater. try to stop any drafts and you can use a hairdryer to try to warm pipes that you think might be frozen. a torch will also work if you know how to use one and avoid any flammable areas.

"nf" error code on Maytag front load stackable

I think your hunch is probably correct. "nf" is "no fill" or "slow fill" so if the machine is in a cold enough location it likely has frozen supply lines or inlet water valve. About all you can do is slowly warm the area around it with a space heater or wait until Spring. I wouldn't try to warm it in a day though. Frozen pipes that are thawed too quickly can break, leaving you with a real mess on your hands, possibly even structural damage to the property. All you need to do is get the temps above freezing, it doesn't need to be balmy. If you use an electric heater make sure it is well away from combustibles and the machine if possible. When water lines break they tend to spray where they want so keep that under consideration when placing the heater and make sure it's off the floor. If i started warming the room today i wouldn't even try to use the machine for a week. And i'd babysit it as much as humanly possible. Good luck.

Heater in Cabin in Colorado

Not a good idea, because if one malfunctions your whole log cabin will go up in smoke. Not sure if your homeowners insurance would compensate you for it either.

Get your HVAC system installed first so that you can set the thermostat temps to 60 F. Go down to Home Depot and buy heat tape to wrap around the pipes and plug them into an outlet. The heat tape has a thermometer on it that turns on the heat tape whenever the pipes get too cold. Also, leave the cabinet doors open underneath sinks so the room temperature can equalize.

Water line to heater is frozen. What do I do?

That will depend on how much is exposed to conditions/weather, that caused it to freeze. A good place to start is to heat valve and and piping that you suspect is frozen, with a hair dryer, or heat gun, if possible. Try to move it along entire area, rather than concentrate on one spot. Where it's located obviously will have a bearing on how you do it as well. Can you give a little description of how much pipe, etc., that you suspect is frozen, and where it located, as in access wise?

No heat in zone with Honeywell rth230B

It is not your thermostat, it is an airbound zone. The gurgly noise you heard was that water and air flowing through the radiator. The zone needs to be purged either at the boiler, or through vents on the radiator. Hope this helps
