Need a diagram on how to wire a disconnect box to the water heater


the heater should be wired with number 10 wire depending on the distance with its own breaker from the panel,if you want another one if you don't know how to put it in you shouldn't be messing with it.

My atwood 6 gal lp water heater starts fine then shuts itself off after about 1 minute. Sounds like a thermostate issue but where is that located on the electric model? Thanks. Ryan


Look to left of burner, below pressure relief valve, behind foam cover. Letters should be THERM on one and ECO on the other. Peel foam back and you'll see a little disc, with 2 male spade connectors. Don't mix up the one marked THERM, with ECO, they are different temperature settings. You might want to remove the thermal cut-out in the plastic tube and connect the wires direct (your basically going to by-pass it) and see if that cures it first. Just disconnect one end from Therm, and other from red wire, and put red wire (female spade) on male terminal at therm. I've seen them cause similar symptoms. If that cures it, buy a new thermal cut-off and install it as soon as you can, as it's a safety item in case of flame-up from burner, it shuts of power to gas valve etc, to eliminate fire.

Residential water heaters USUALLY follow same diagram unless water heater is wired for other purpose. Multiple diagrams on instructions show available options. Take photo of wiring before removing wires on any electrical device.
Upper element.
Black wire from top of heater connects to #1 top left screw.
Red wire from top connects to #3 top right screw.
Blue wire from upper element connects to #4 middle screw on right side
Red wire from lower element connects to #4 middle screw on right side
Yellow wire from upper element connects to #2 lower left screw
Black wire from lower thermostat connects to #4 lower right screw
Upper element: Yellow and Blue wires connect to either screw
Lower element: Red wire from top connects to either screw
Lower thermostat: Black wire from top connects to top screw
Short wire between lower thermostat and lower element

I have a new water heater, and the hook up terminals are labled 1-2-3 are they hooked the same as in the panel 1-2-3 ?


No. You have to find out if you have 3 phase or single phase power. If this is a new unit you will find a wiring diagram inside the front cover. 3 phase power has 3 "hot" wires. Single phase has 2 "hot" wires. There is a big difference when you hook it up wrong. I don't know if this is a new installation or if you are replacing an old one. The terminals are numbered for 3 phase. If you look in your breaker box, 3 phase 208 will haven a breaker with 3 spaces hooked together by one bar. Single phase will have two spaces hooked together by a bar. So if the breaker kicks out it will flip all 3 space on 3 phase or 2 spaces on single phase. If you already have wires to the location of the booster heater, you may have to use single phase if that is all that is at that location. If you have single phase power you will have to look at the wiring diagram and you will see the terminal block represented for both single and 3 phase. Normally running from the terminal block will be six wires marked 1 through 6. The wireing diagram will say something like "for single phase put 1,3,5 on terminal 1 and 2,4,6 on terminal 3. Leave terminal 2 out all together. Of course at this point your 2 hot wires will go to terminal 1 and 3. There are other considerations as well. With 3 phase the circuit wires will be smaller gauge and may not carry the current you need for single phase. This is a booster heater. You need to hook up your hot water line to go into the heater and the boosted hot water to your appliance. It will not work to heat your water for other purposes. It is meant to take 140 degree water and boost it to 190 degrees. Good luck, hope this helps
