Doesn't always come on with hot water is turned on


Water heaters draw water into the bottom, and as the hot water heats, it rises and hot water exits from the top.
You might want to check each fixture, does the hot pipe (tubing)feel warm when you run it for a moment. Can you get warm water from some of the fixtures, but not others?
I'm bet there is a leak at the top of the intake which is filling from the top down, instead of bottom up.

Premier Plus Model#MHE62-30H-045DV Ser#45T421608 I just purchased this hot water heater.I had it professionally installed by a plumber.We had hot water before I went to bed but when I woke in the morning...


sounds like you have a power problem. or worst than that a leak . So lets look at the leak first. Turn off the water supply at the water heater on top. This valve should be on the cold side of the heater on top.

Turn it off, check and see if you have pressure in the house by turning on a faucet. It should run for a second then stop. That is good if it does. Leave the valve off on the heater and check that your breaker is on. Reset the breaker by turning it on and off.

Wait about 2 hours turn the heater back on and check to see how hot the water is hot then you might have a leak in the building. If there is not or little hot water. Check the wires where it connects to the water heater. You might only have one wire that is connected right.

The best thing to do is to get a amo meter and check to see if you have 220 if you dont have 220 you will not warm up the water the way it should.

Thanks Richard

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.

Water is either hot or cold - no in between.


I found a way to get warm water in the shower, but I'm not sure it qualifies as a solution. After trying everything else I thought that maybe when I was feathering the faucet in the shower toward the cold side so I would get warm water that at a certain point it blocked the flow on the hot water side enough so that the sensor in the hot water heater sensed there was no demand in the line and it shut the water heater off. To test this, I went to the kitchen and turned the kitchen sink faucet all the way to the hot side and then turned it on so that I got a small flow of water. I waited for the water to get hot to be sure the hot water heater was working. Once it was hot, I left it running to keep demand in the line and then I went to the shower and turned the faucet on. When the water got hot I started feathering the control towards the cold side and soon I had warm water. So I think I'm right in that the sensor in the hot water heater was shutting the water heater off when the demand in the shower was lowered to a certain point when I was trying to adjust the water temp in the shower.

So now I can get warm water, but it means I have to leave the hot water running at another fixture in the house to create a false demand in the system so the hot water heater doesn't shut down. Is there a way to adjust the senor in the hot water heater so that it will stay on when I'm using the shower only, so I don't have to waste water by running another faucet when I want to take a shower?

Parkray Cumbria efficiency problem


Some circulation pumps have a 3 phase mixing valve (cold,warm,hot) to regulate the water pressure in the building; no way to know unless you trace the plumbing. Basically, the hot water temperature could be lost because the circ-pump is cooling it with the cold water supplied to it. This is used to balance the pressure (aka Pressure Balancing Circ-Pump), so heater is really working overtime to heat the water. If the pump has two in and one out that's more than likely your problem; but you should consult a "old-school" plumber in your area.
