Turning up hot water heater

Hi. We can't find how to turn up the hot water heater. Where is the dial or gage? We took off a metal plate only to find wires. Any thoughts?

It is a Craftmaster Hot water Heater

I had to mark that it is a dryer because there isn't a subcategory for Hot Water heaters.

Thermostat for mdl te420t


Take the.plate off of the bottom cover of the water heater after turning off the breaker or removing the fuse from your main electrical panel. After you have done this and the plate is off remove the insulation from over the plastic cap that covers the thermostat/heating element. This thermostat. Controls both heating elements if your heater has two elements. After you take the plastic cover off the thermostat, turn the dial counterclockwise to the desired temp. I find that a 125 degrees is optimum for my household, but I live alone. If you have a family you may want to go a bit higher, 130-140. Also if it is electric get a water softener. It will save you time, money, sweat, and a lot cussing while you're changing water heater elements. Learned from experience on that one plus it deeps your fixtures lime free. Best investment I ever made.

Heater comes on with water


please see the next step:
he pilot light may be out or may not stay lit. There may not be enough hot water, or the water may be too hot. The water heater may leak or be noisy, or the hot water may be dirty.
A problem with your water heater may be due to overwork, not mechanics. If your water heater holds less than 15 gallons per family member (tank volume is stamped on a metal plate affixed to most water heaters), consider a larger unit or staggering your use of hot water.
Drain a hot water tank:
  1. Turn the gas-control knob to off and close the gas-shutoff valve.
  2. Close the cold-water supply valve and open a hot-water faucet in the house to speed draining.
  3. Attach a garden hose to the drain valve and run it outside to a drain. If the heater is in the basement you may need to run the hose to or through a sump pump.
  4. Open the drain valve and allow the tank to drain.
  5. Once done, close the drain valve, open the cold-water supply valve, and open any nearby hot-water faucet. When a steady stream of water flows from that faucet, the tank is full; close the hot-water faucet.
  6. Once the tank is full, turn on the gas and relight the pilot.

Good afternoon, We have a 25yr old delta shower faucet and head. both work wonderful but the water is not all that hot- our new hotwater tank is set at 130 degrees. If i need to change the mix do i do it...


You don't change the setting on the faucet or behind the shower wall. You change the mix in the hot water heater itself. New hot water heaters are set at a relatively lower hot-water-setting for liability purposes. To achieve a hotter mix, take the cover plate off the hot water heater. You will see a dial setting that allows you to turn up the heat. Depending on what type of water heater you have, there might be two cover plates (lower and upper). If so, you'll need to adjust both of these.

Hi there i recently had another gas appliance installed and the gas was turned off while this work was done, so my hot water service pilot light went out. the guys who did this work didn't relight the...


First turn the dial on the hot water heater to the off position and wait for 5 minutes. Then turn the dial on the water heater to the pilot position. Press in the dial and use a gas grill lighter, long wooden match, or similar device to light the pilot. Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold in the dial for about 1 minute then release and turn the dial to the temperature setting that's comfortable for you.

Just bought a house and it has a grundfos timer/pump attached at the hot water tank. I have no hot water and the timer doesn't turn (as I've seen other timers do). Is it supposed to turn so that the...


Grundfos is a sealed unit and not a repairable item.
The timer dial should turn.
And pins located around dial control ON-OFF functions as timer dial rotates.

Does the receptacle have power?
If receptacle has power, and Grundfos is not working, then it is broken.
Grundfos manuals for UP series pumps do not show breakdown or parts list of any kind.

Bigger question:
Why don't you have hot water?
Is water heater functioning?
Water heater is a separate appliance from Grundfos pump.
Grundfos pump circulates hot water from tank into the lines so there is no waiting for hot water ... but hot water heater should still make hot water.

Add a comment about water heater if that is also a problem.
You could have 2 problems, and water heater is main issue.

No manual can't figure out how to raise the temp on a hot water heater they have the foam over it and don't want to tear it all off


The dial to raise the temperature should be on the front at the bottom----or possibly behind the silver metal plate at the bottom of the unit. Lift the metal piece up then out and it will come off---then there will be a dial or a slider with hot and cold labeled---tuen it accordingly--- dont go too much---move a bit then give it some time and test water temp-----keep in mind turning this up will increase your gas or electric bill as well!

Where is temperature control on Kenmore power miser 12 hot water heater?


If you mean the temperature control dial, it's inside of the metal housing on the bottom of the unit. Slide the metal box up and off, and you will see the dial.
