How can I reset a water heater that overheated?

There is only one reason a water heater will overheat and that is a faulty thermostat.
It is the thermostat that allows the temperature to rise to a preset or selectable temperature, depending on the type, and when the correct temperature is reached the thermostat will switch off the supply to the element.

The most common type of thermostat is the traditional bi-metal type which has proved long-lasting and reliable but electronics have moved in to this field adding expense and complications.

Whichever type is fitted to your heater, in any case of overheating the thermostat should be replaced or in the case of an electronic thermostat it should be repaired and calibrated.

Asko d3251 randomly stopping during cycle.

The thing that immediately comes to mind is a faulty door switch or latch. The door switch can be replaced and you might be ok. But the latch would be more tricky to check. Sometimes if dishwasher is not level or if the door springs are misalinged the door tends to slip and release the latch due to pressure. It works when you open and shut. But not sure about the night time cycle. That sounds a bit creepy if it starts again by itself. Why not put a tape around the door and then start. That will help eliminate the obvious ones. The other thing that exends dishwasher cycle time is the lack of adequate water temperature. Could be heater or thermostat or both.
You should be able to stroll through the parts by selecting categories on this site.

Got a lakewood heater jr 762 and the switch is burned out. Where do I got to find the replacement, or what's the part number? Thanks

I would assume you are talking about the thermostat switch. These switches are very simple to repair on your own. They are open without any housings and can be accesses by generally removing the panel from the heater. These thermostats fail at the two contact points due to the consistent arcing from opening and closing or on and off. These arcs create carbon buildup which then will not allow them to make the continuity necessary to turn the heater on. In some cases they may even fuse together keeping the heat source consistently running. If the heat source is continuously running with a faulty thermostat the thermal fuse may fault out. If the thermal fuse faults the fan may work but the heat source will not. These fuses will need replaced by an experienced person, you can generally pick these up on ebay for a few dollars. For carbon build up use a small wire brush to remove, while using fine sandpaper to drag between the contact points of the thermostat. Good luck. Mike

Over heating and the heater dosent work

looks like you have an airlock in the radiator....
start the truck when cold, and remove radiator cap.
let the truck run without the cap and you're supposed to see air bubbles coming out.

let the car run until there is no more bubbles( it can take up to 1/2 hour ) then replace the cap.

remember to always keep the radiator full when you're doing this....

Heater not workin, sprinter 311

Check the coolant level for over heating issue.If the coolant is low then car will overheat.Also if coolant is getting leaked then also due to that car overheats.Also if there is blockage of coolant in heater core tube then it can be one more reason.Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses on the firewall that go to the heater core, and flush the heater core out thoroughly with a garden hose.The heater not working,for this check the heater blower motor ,If the motor is faulty then heater will not start.Other cause of heater not getting started is faulty thermostat and faulty coolant temperature sensor.This are the possibilities that are to be checked.Thanks.

Rinnai Infinity 26 hot water system set to 55 degrees with remote temp adjuster. Water only luke warm for showers. Burnner working, water & gas pressure ok. Any thoughts ... Stephen

If you aren't getting any error codes, then the heater is probably doing its job. Your problem is probably somewhere in your plumbing system. The most common reason you get this sort of problem is due to cold water mixing in the hot water system. There are a number of causes for a "cross connection" :

-Faulty check valve
-Missing check valve on reciculation return line
-Faulty shower cartridge
-Thermostatic mixing valve set too low
-Faulty thermostatic mixing valve
-Faulty anti-scald valve

The easiest way to confirm a cross connection is to: 1) shutoff the cold water entering the tankless heater 2) open hot water valves around the house. If you still have water flowing at your hot water fixtures, then you have a cross connection.

Vulcan Quasar 40 air issue

Hi the problem you have is your heater is cutting out due to the over temp switch getting to hot the reason for this is that your fan is not working thus not enough air flow is getting through the heat exchanger to keep it cool
your heater is designed to not exceed a certain temprature so as not to become a fire risk
to solve your problem you will need to replace your fan
this will solves your problem

Hotpoint condencer dryer TDC62

Several reasons for it not to heat.
Obviously faulty heater, and or thermostat(s). You need meter to test. Heater and stats are located at the rear of the m/c behind a removable panel.
Faulty programmer, faulty heater relay.
Check filters etc, refer to instructions for this.
Plz leave feed back on this .
