I don't know how high the water got but if only the burner was covered it is probably just dirt. Try replacing the thermocouple this is usually less than $10. If the gas valve itself was wet REPLACE THE WATER HEATER!!!!!!! Never trust a gas valve that has been wet!!!!! It can seem to work just fine but get stuck in the open position defeating all safety measures.

Bottled water appliance precautions




Hey Culligan Man!

My family has enjoyed the convenience and health benefits of drinking bottled water for several years. We have used a drinking appliance where the bottled is upturned and the water is gravity-fed. The water is then heated and cooled and served from hot and cold spigots. (I've seen other types of dispensers when the bottle goes upright inside the cabinet and is pumped into the water pitcher.)

The heated water quit working recently but the refrigerated part was OK. After noting how some members of my family used the dispenser, I have solved the problem. It is caused by the water level running too low in the mini water heater causing the element to burn out. Low water doesn't harm the mini-frig part. Low water levels are caused by using the bottle past empty and continuing to take water until it almost stops coming out. This "starves" the water heater, consequently burning out the element! Always replace the bottle on top before it gets past empty! If it gurgles considerably, it's filling up a nearly empty water tank probably with a burned-out element.

Maybe manufacturers can address this problem of too low water levels in subsequent models.

Regards,

Bob K.

I was sitting at my computer, with my space heater running, and suddenly both of them went out. Assuming that I had drawn too much power, I went to the fuse box to flip the switch back. Much to my...


The service to your basement needs to be upgraded if you are going to run the heater and other electrical units. I would guess that you have a 15 amp line and need to upgrade it up to at least a 20 amp and with a 12 gauge grounded line. In the short term you may be able to get by using a heater that draws fewer amps.
This definitely sounds like your need to consult an electrician.

I have an old ideal elan 2 boiler. The pilot light has gone out and wont re-ignite. I have pressed the ignition switch in but there is not even a spark. Does anybody know where the re-set button is on...


Hi, to light the pilot you must first ensure the gas valve button (Grey with 3 symbols on it) is placed in the ignition position, then, while holding the button in towards the gas valve depress the orange ignitor button several times, hold the gas valve button in for about 30 seconds once the pilot lights. If it fails to light and you cannot see a spark when you depress the ignition button the cable could be faulty, the ignitor corroded or damaged or the pilot could be blocked or the gas turned off. If it is an Elan 2 CF boiler there is no reset button.

Water hardness


Magnesium Anode rodes will make water smell like rotten eggs. If you can for your heater get a aluminum anode rode and replace the one you have.

Booster heater quits heating water after a few minutes of use and you must hit reset button to get it to work again. What would be causing this? For Hatco C36208 Booster Heater 3 phase


#1 I would check that you actually have 3 phases connected. #2 I would also check the ground. There could be a loose ground, or depending on the installation, the ground could be defeated by rubber washers in flex lines. Fix this by running a wire from the casing of the water heater to the pipe, bypassing the flex lines.
#3 Replace the thermastat. The thermastat has the reset button on it.

#'s 1 & 2 are very minimal in cost. #3 is still affordable.

I have a hot water heater,for some reason it started leaking were the cold water goes in, it was leaking were the round white cover that cover the whole that the connection goes in the tank.Can you tell me...


To find out you need to cut away the white cover to see where the leak is coming from. This white cover is just cosmetic.

If the leak is on the connection where the supply line comes in, then is usually can be fixed.

If the leak is on the metal of the tank below the connection, then there is no fixing it. The metal just below the white plastic is part of the tank.

If the leak is on the connection, it can all be replaced. I recommend replacing the nipple going into the water heater with a 3/4" x 3" brass nipple. From there I recommend using a 3/4" x 3/4" x 18"-24" copper water heater flex. This assuming that you have a flex line installed now. If not I still recommend the brass nipple and the copper flex, but you can get a 3/4" Sharkbite Male adapter to adapt to copper pipe. (Use this fitting instead of having to solder. This fitting is found at Home Depot and Lowes. Be sure not to have any burrs on the copper pipe, because Sharkbites use an O'ring which can be damaged by any burrs.)

If you have a different plumbing installation, please contact me.
