SOURCE: water dispenser leak

I think I would think about getting a new one. It would cost more to fix it and then you may not get it back together so it wouldn't leak.

SOURCE: elec water heater no hot water

Check the breaker to see if the unit is getting power. You will need a voltage meter to check out the thermostat on the unit and also you will need to use it to check if the elements aren't blown. Sounds like the unit isn't getting power but could be the thermostat located under one of the panels on the side of the unit.

Were is cold water inlet and hot water outel on model 71-40d b


Cold inlet and hot outlet are marked on top of water heater.
Usually there is a letter or word embossed into the metal top.

If tank is connected, then turn on hot water tap for a few moment and feel which pipe is hot.

Cold water enters bottom of tank through dip tube located on cold side. If hot and cold are reversed, the water heater will not perform as expected.

6 gal tank puts out only about 2 gal of very hot water. ADoes the same whether on gas or with electric hot rod.


Have you tried it with both (hot rod and Gas ) turned on at same time? Is tank well insulated? (looking from behind tank.)
Does temperature drop off quickly, or gradually? Did it supply hot water better before, or this is first time you really measured it out? Need to keep in mind that as hot goes out the top fitting to hot lines, cold is coming in the bottom fitting and beginning to mix with hot, which obvioulsy will cause hot to gradually become warm as it enters. 2 gallons out hot tap, 2 gals., at bottom of tank, then mixing as it flows in usually equals, about 2 gal or less of warm, then cold again. Get many complaints of only enough for a short shower when they have 6 gal tank. You can try adjusting temperature up a little to see if it helps. Keep an eye on pressure relief valve dripping excessively as well as shut pump off for 20min-30 min, then turn it back on before touching any taps, to see if it cycles at all, indicating a leak in the system. If pump doesn't cycle when turned back on, no leaks.

How does rhe hot and cold water hook up on a 71-40d which is which top and bottom


Tanks are marked with Hot and Cold.
1) If water connections are on top of tank, look for red marking or word HOT that shows where hot water pipe connects. Look for blue marking or word COLD that shows cold water connection.
2) If water connections are on side of tank, cold water connects to bottom one, and hot connects to top.

3) If hot and cold are reversed, the tank will not work.
Pipes on top of tank: cold water enters tank and is sent to bottom of tank in a long tube called the dip tube. This means the cold is on the bottom since hot water rises to the top. The hot water exits top of tank.
Pipes on side of tank: You want cold water to enter bottom, so hot water naturally rises to the top outlet.

Hot water for only 5 to tn minutes then have to wait.


You have an element gone of your hot water is running out quick and having to wait for it to heat up again. Best thing to do is to go ahead and replace both of them.
If you replace just one it will work the old one till it causes it to go. Most of the time if the top element is good you will get a blast of hot water and then it will get cold. With the bottom element only working it will be luke warm water for a while then go cold.
If you need a guide how to replace them got to the link below for further information. It will guide you through trouble shooting your heater.

We have a new Rheem 30 gal short water heater. It only seems to put out about 10 gallons of hot water before it starts going cold,any suggestions......


I am assuming that everything was fine and then all of the sudden available hot water usage time dropped.

On a dual heating element hot water heater it can be

1. Internal tank loaded with sediment (drain and purge from lower garden hose fitting)

2. Thermostat or element problem with ONE of the 2 heaters. (Trouble shoot element thermostat)

3. Check Circuit breaker for partial trip of the breaker.

I installed a now 40 gal. electric water heater, made by Reliance, problem: I have power going to the top thermostat and element, but there is no power going to the bottom element.please help, thanks Mike...


How they work. First you need to know that cold water goes into the tank near the bottom (because of the "dip tube" inside the tank) and hot water is taken out at the top. Also hot water naturally rises.
so... when the tank is full of cold water the top element will come on and heat up the top 1/3 of the water then the bottom element will come on and finish heating the rest of the tank.

Low amount of hot water


You say a very new water heater. You won't get 40 gallons of hot water from a 40 gallon water heater because the continuing influx of cold water will cool your hot water down. However, it appears that your bottom water heater element needs replacing. If the top element is bad, you'll get no hot water. If your bottom element is bad, you'll get "some" hot water. Try replacing the bottom element. DON'T FORGET to turn off the electricity AND water first (closeby towels are also handy)!
