Turn off the power check all your connections. Check for a tripped breaker. If can use a volt meter check for power and check continuity of your elements.

Brand new electric hot water heater doesn't get water hot top reads 240v, bottom reads 120 v


Check your manual. Your thermostat may be turned too low 140 should be a good setting, or the bottom element is bad. Also, some water heaters have resets that may be tripped

Water heater


Guessing that you have 240Volt residential non-simultaneous electric water heater? And that you have 30 amp breaker and 10 gauge wire. And that water heater is located within 100 feet of breaker box. And there are no leaks running hot water out of tank. And that you installed fully brand NEW elements of same wattage as old elements. And that fully brand new thermostats were installed, and wiring exactly duplicates wiring that was present before. And that factory-insulation was re-installed over elements and thermostats.

1) Guessing the 'hot water shut off' means the ECO red reset button located on upper thermostat keeps tripping and cutting off electric power to water heater?

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-wires.html

2) If the ECO is tripping, then water is getting too hot, or there is shorted wire located near the upper thermostat, .
Typically replacing both thermostats and replacing elements will solve this problem .... assuming that new thermostats and elements are good, and wiring correct.
Double-Check your wiring on upper and lower thermostats.
Test wires for short.
Make sure factory-insulation is re-installed over thermostats so cool room temperature will not affect temperature reading.
Check that thermostats sit flat against steel tank.
Many short draws hot water can also cause stacking event that will trip circuit breaker.

3) Add comment and say what you find using checklist above.
Be careful to explain findings fully, using same words found on links above, so illuminated diagnosis can be made.

Lowe's hot water heater pilot light will not stay


Hi,

If it is one of the new ones with the fancy gas control and the blinking light... does the light blink?? or not??
If it is blinking then the pilot should stay lit...
If it will not blink then the sensor is bad or not in the right place...

Or... the gas control is bad... this is happening alot...

If it is brand new... take it back...

We just installed a brand new Reliance electric water heater and there is no hot water or power.....tried the breaker.....help! Please!


what knowledge of electricity do you have? a hot water heater requires a 2 pole feed meaning you need a 3 wire 30 amp rated wire and it has to be on a 2 pole 30 amp breaker. first off do you have that currently installed?

No hot water


Is hot water present when opening the drain valve. Use a bucket to catch the water. Adjust thermostat from high to kow then prefered detting. Make sure hot water out line does not have a closed valve. If gas, ck pilot. If electric, elements may be damage if heater was powered up before or while initial filling.
