Not getting any hot water what do i do?


I suggest getting in touch with your boiler company. They'll come out and check your thermostat, check your pipe's aren't freezing and that your boiler is igniting at least. P.s. I had this problem recently down to user error, been cold recently so had the heating on often then wondered why my water was chilly :S

Electric went off the control panel is dark and no hot water


It sounds like you have electronic ignition for your burner and not a gas pilot. If it's an electric water heater than the problem is probably similar. There is a small transformer that interfaces with the knob that controls the water temperature. Sometimes they need a reset. Turn off the breaker , wait a few seconds, and than turn back on. If it's a gas pilot type it still has a transformer but the breaker trick may not be the solution...though it doesn't hurt to try. If this is the case you may need to relight the pilot. Follow the instructions located normally just above the water temperature control knob

Hot water heater water, went out main line of house that enters house


You did smart thing turning off water and gas.
Play it safe.

Your water heater will NOT explode.
Conduct routine maintenance so water heater lasts longer. If plumber says you need new heater, then post question on fixya and include information showing on tank label on side of tank.
Also include why plumber says to replace.
Get another plumber.

Call city utility company to determine source of noise.

Hi, we are renting and have no hot water. We have a water wizard on the outside of the house. Should we have connected with a gas company? Or does it run on something else?


If you're renting then you should call your landlord and have them fix it. thats the beauty of renting, this is not your responsivility

The gas company has come out twice becuase the pilot went out. He found a leak and fixed it and i had a hot water shower once before it went out again. He came out a second time and did the repair again...


A number of things can affect the pilot.
Unknown if this is new heater or heater that stopped working.
Unknown what type of gas valve is on water heater.
Unknown what the gas company man observed, and why he said call manufacturer, and what he repaired. Was the gas control valve leaking?
Unknown what type of general maintenance and testing has been done.

Option 1) The gas company said call the manufacturer.
Information shows on label on side of tank.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-manufacturers.html

Option 2) Open following links and start reading. And then try to fix yourself.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Pilot-light-will-not-stay-lit.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html#troubleshoot

Option 3) Call gas company guy and ask him exactly what he observed, write that down, and then add a comment with very specific information for possible help.

Option 4) Call local plumber and tell him the specific information that gas company man said, and see what solution he can offer.

I have a humming and knocking that is happening in my pipes. It seems to be related to my hot water heater. I have unplugged the heater and that helps most of it, but there are still times during the day...


Knocking water pipes are caused by air trapped in the pipe. If the pipe only went uphill and horizontal, the air releases out of the faucet and doesn't cause a problem. But if the pipe takes a turn back down, there is an opportunity for the air to remain trapped. Try this ---. Turn on all of your hot water faucets full blast at the same time. Start with the highest faucet farthest from the hot water tank and work your way back to the one closest to the hot water tank. Count to ten, then close them in reverse order. If that doesn't clear the air, then look for a place where the pipe travels horizontally then back down. If such a place is accessible, and if the pipe is copper, buy a self-piercing tap of the type that are used to supply water to an ice maker. Install it and let some water out and hopefully some air out. If you also attach a section of clear hose you and you open the valve very slowly, you will be able to see the air bubbles in the hose. I use just such a setup on my hot-water heating system and it works like a champ. Good luck!
