No hot water


Possible that the coils are to be suspected or if there is no power to the coil. so unless the voltage is checked on the coils or the continuity tested of the coils , it cannot be confirmed.
Remove the unit and get access to the coils to test with a multimeter for a continuity. If there is a reading then check on the thermal cut off trip or the thermostat which can be faulty assuming there is power to the unit. Take care when working with the power switched on, and check the range on your multimeter when testing continuity and ac voltage.

Electric Water Heater blows fuse, but only every few years


Your residential water heater is not 9000 watts. Or it would blow the fuse every day and melt the wire. Instead, you have dual-element non-simultaneous 4500 watt water heater.
http://waterhatertimer.org/How-it-works.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Figure-Volts-Amps-Watts-for-water-heater.html
Look at label for 'total connected watts'
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Whirlpool-energy-smart-watt-rating-IMG_2600.jpg
25 amp breaker or fuse and 10 gauge wire is minimum acceptable for 4500 watt water heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-code-wire.html
Troubleshoot blowing breaker or fuse:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html#trip-breaker
Why does it blow fuse once each year?? I don't know.
Fuses and breakers trip when overheating occurs on wire.
Each fuse or breaker is rated for heat, and over time, it will get hot and then cool and then get hot again ... this action weakens fuse or breaker.
To solve problem: install 3500 watt elements (and clean sediment out of tank). Wire will run cooler, and fuse will last longer. Whole fuse box will demand less power, and run cooler, and will last longer as a result. So there is less stress on electric service panel.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-water-heater-element.html
3500 watt element will heat water to same temperature, but takes longer. For example: 4500 watt heats 21 gallons per hour, while 3500 watt heats 17 gallons per hour.

High temperature thermal cut-out has tripped


Type, model, brand, age of water heater, and general installation of water heater are unknown.

1) Electric tank-type water heater: replace thermostats and test elements.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html

2) Gas tank-type: replace gas control valve, clean air intake screen/ location varies by brand:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

3) Tankless: call service technician, or replace tankless with tank-type and save money long-term.

4) Add comment and describe water heater using label located on side of unit, and include what you are doing to 'reset' the thermal cut-out.

Bosch AE-9.5 keeps tripping the reset


All resets and breakers trip with high heat.
Do you mean the tankless unit is tripping the 40 amp circuit breaker?
Or the thermal cut-out, located on unit, is tripping?

Is this a new installation?
Or was the tankless working before and stop working?

Copy following link to check wiring.
AE 9.5 requires 40 amp breaker and 6 gauge wire.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Tankless-electric-water-heater.html

If the unit is tripping the thermal cut, -out, then product manual says to call Bosch or service technician.
Call Bosch 866-330-2729
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch-Powerstar-AE3.4-7.2-9.5.pdf
Thermal cut-out can trip if water flow is too low.
Try changing power selector screw from Hi to Lo so only 1 element is ON. See diagram page 6 of manual.
Adjust the 'outlet service valve:' The manual recommends that a ball valve be installed between hot outlet and faucet. Adjust the valve so more water flows to faucet.
Remove aerator, clean aerator, don't use low flow restrictions or low flow shower heads, replace leaky faucet cartridge on single-handle faucet.

We have a ge electric water heater - last night we set a new jug of detergent on top of it over the electric plate on the top of the unit - it had a hole ( small leak) in the bottom - it leaked all night...


You flooded water heater wiring compartment with detergent, and the wires were shorting so you turned off power and cleaned detergent. Now water heater doesn't work.

1) The heat from shorting might have tripped ECO reset button.
Open top cover on water heater, and push in red reset ECO button.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Jly-022-thermostat2-175.jpg
Be sure to re-install insulation and cover.

Other steps:
2) Turn off power. Remove wire nuts. Cut off copper ends of wire, and re-strip each wire so fresh copper shows. Make sure no detergent is on the copper. Use new wire nuts and twist very tight against copper wire.
3) Cut back burned ground wire. Remove ground screw and clean thoroughly. And then reattach clean copper to ground screw.
4) Turn power back on.

5) If water heater still does not work, then test across top two screws on upper thermostat for correct voltage.

Help! We bought out home 3 years ago and have a Nortiz tankless water heater. Recently we heard a dripping sound coming from the water heater and found that the bottom of the unit is leaking. We had a...


you will need to explain more of where the leak is on the bottom. You have two plastic valves on the bottom and if the clips are not on exactly it will leak and if the person who replaced valves did not use vasoline when they put it back together the could have cut the gasket ring on the inside putting in back together and again it will leak. You have to determine where the leak is coming from to begin with using a flash light to get the exact location. .

Is there an eternal fuse?


There is a GFI on the bottom right hand corner of the heater. It is a black box with 5 wires on the bottom in this order: blue, white, green ground, black, and white. The voltage across the blue/white should be about 100VAC and the voltage across the black/white should also be 100VAC. If the black/white isn't registering any voltage, the gfi is tripped.

The GFI typically trips due to moisture in the unit; however, it can also be fried if there was a voltage surge while you were gone. Use a hair dryer to dry up any moisture inside the unit, specifically around the GFI. If the water is pooling or you see a visible drip coming from the top of the heater, you heat exchanger is probably leaking and needs to be replaced.

If you have voltage on both sides of your gfi, check the voltage at the remote terminals. You should have 15VDC. If there is no voltage, you circuit board is damaged and needs to be replaced. If there is voltage at the remote terminals but no display on your remote, then check your remote wiring.

Light flashing - lockout condition - ECO failure


The ECO is designed to shut off the water heater in case of the water heater overheating. This is to prevent the water heater from exploding. I assume that you have a newer style residental water heater or a commerical boiler. The ECO is a fuseable link that is built into the control and located at the thermostat probe. If the water heater overheats then this link will melt cutting the circuit on the millivolt system(residential) or 24volt system(commercial boiler). If you look under the water heater control(where the temp adjustment is) there are usuall two wires that go from the control to the water heater. These are the ECO wires. Verify the wires have not been cut or damaged. If these wires are cut or damaged then the ECO circuit will be incomplete and you will get the ECO lockout failure. Also make sure that the flame lock-out switch is not tripped. It will be located at the burner compartment cover and have two wires going to it. Most have a little button in the center. These are to sense high heat and one might have tripped closing the circuit. You can push this little button to re-set the switch. If you feel a little "click" then the switch was probably tripped. If it does not have any button then it might be "self resetting". To test that switch use a continuity tester and the circuit should be closed. If these switches are working then the fusable link for the ECO is probably bad from the water heater temp getting too high or was defective and failed. This will require you to remove the water heater control valve and replace the fusable link. If you do not have experience with this I suggest you call a licensed plumber to make the repairs. If this repair is improperly done it could void the warranty on the water heater and/or cause property/personal damage or injury. There is a possiblilty that your water heater thermostat had failed causing the ECO to trip. If that is the case then the ECO safety did it's job.

Thermostat keeps cutting power off to elba excellance oven


I have a similar problem with an Indesit oven. There are two thermostats one controlling the oven temperature which i think you have replaced and another over-temperature stat to prevent the oven getting to hot should the temp stat fail to control the temperature. The over- temperature stat could be operating to quickly and this cuts power to the the digital display, oven light, temp light and circulating fan. I am going to replace this over-temp stat
