Water inside tank-type water heater can remain hot for some time.
That's one advantage of well-insulated tank-type water heaters.

Power outage can be related to failure of gas control.
Unplug stuff when power goes out. And then plug back in after power is restored.
Water heaters with electronics are not protected from surge.
Electronics can blow out during and after power outage. For example nearby lightning strike will cause current to run along household wires. With ordinary power outage, once power is restored, the surge can affect all kinds of electronic circuitry such as timers, water heaters, water softener, treadmill etc.

Sounds like you have intellivent gas control valve:
Open following link to identify gas control, and download typical manual, and download intellivent service manual with troubleshooting, error codes, etc.

You posted under tank-type electric water heater.
1) Check the circuit breaker.
2) Open top cover located on side of tank and push in reset button.
3) If these two actions do not restore function, then open following link for complete troubleshoot:

Hello,


The pressure tank psi may be too high. To set it you get the system to pressure up and stop then check that water pressure. Whatever that is, is what the tank should be set at. Too much air pressure and the water pressure will suddenly drop before the pump kicks in.
To set the tank properly turn off the pump, drain all water pressure, then set the air pressure in the tank to the same as the water pressure was. Turn it back on and check again.

Thermador Oven E10 error message--due to power outage?


HI. During the power outage, there may have been a power surge. This has shorted your main control board. This E-10 is indicating that this is the issue. This code represents a failed control board. It must be replaced, in this case. Once replaced, the unit will return to its normal operating status.

F74 is not a valid fault code. If it was F14, then it was bad eeprom value (on timer board).
Try tripping circuit breaker or unplugging the power cord. Connect power back and follow reset procedure again, that will reset NVRam.
Ensure that there is no water inside the machine. If there is water, while machine is disconnected, empty water.
If that does not work, the control board may be defective.

Power outage, now pc will not power up at all


OK FIRST A POWER SURGE PROTECTOR WILL ONLY PROTECT YOU 7 % OF THE TIME, WHICH YOU JUST REALIZED. SO YOU NEED TO BUY A BATTERY BACKUP ALSO KNOWN AS A UPS.... I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. BRING YOUR PC TO BEST BUY AND THEY WILL TEST YOUR POWER SUPPLY, IF IT TESTS OUT OK THEN YOU BLEW SOMETHING IN YOUR MOTHERBOARD. GET A BATTERY BACKUPS/UPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Power outage last night. Deleted all saved voicemail messages. when turned on - machine says "no massages" How do I retrieve lost messages?


I'm sorry there isn't. Answering machines like this have very little ROM memory. After a powersurge and outage like last night, it wiped the whole memory chip. You can try there support page. It's actually pretty good. http://telephones.att.com/telephones_ui/support/index.cfm
