Question about Fasco Bradford White Hot Water Heater Exhaust Draft Inducer Blower # 239-42133-00

Open Question

Our Bradford-White hot water tank (model TTW1) has what we think is a blower problem. It makes a whistling sound. It doesn't do this all the time just periodically. Would the blower need replaced or is it something that we can fix on our own?

Glenn, thank you for responding to my question on the bradford white hot water heater. It is an electric hot water heater, 7 years old. Our water is good in this area, not considered hard water. We do not have a water softener. Appreciate any advice you can give me.

It may just need a new pump coupling. Fairly inexpensive. I don't think you need to replace the whole burner.

There really is no way to do this. If you put a cap you will restrict the air flow which will cause you to have problems with the water heater, same thing if you where to put screen on it. You can try enlarging the pipe to a 3 inch and see if that works. But 15 years in the trade nothing has been made to reduce the noise

The slightly warm water makes me think of a thermostat problem. The fact that the heater is 10 years old I wonder how hard your water is. Calcium build up kills water heaters. But the yellow flame you mention could be the results of dirty orfices. May want to have a Pro look at that.

Probably cheaper to fix existing water heater.
The problem might be the power vent, or the power vent might be short cycling because the gas control valve is bad, or vacuum switch has gone bad.
Call Bradford White and get their recommendation for your specific model.

Bradford White is very good brand of water heater
Rheem, Richmond, GE are good.
I prefer the AO Smith, American, State, Reliance, Craftmaster. Kenmore, Whirlpool brand since air intake screen is located on bottom of unit and can be inspected and cleaned without removing burner.

How do you remove a tmp valve out of a propane gas water heater and are they universal or do I have to go to a Bradford White dealer? Thanks


yes you can get a universal one at any hardware store[about 15$]. shut off cold valve at top of tank and drain tank through drain at bottom of tank.you only need to drain enough to get the water level below the t&p valve. you should use dope and teflon on the new threads of the valve to ensure no leaks. a big cresent wrench or pipe wrench will work to unscrew the valve in a counterclockwise direction

Hello we have Bradford hot water tank model #MI65R6DS13. Our problem, I keep having to press the tanks reset switch for us to get hot water. At the same time after I press the reset switch we have hot...


No the top thermostat is the first place I would start to replace. They run about 14.00 more than likely it isn't controling right. Turn power supply to water heater off and replace thermostat.

If you was getting scalding hot and then turning cold without tripping the thermostat it would be the top element working and the bottom one bad.
Bottom element good it will give you luke warm water for a while then gradually turn cold because it's heating the bottom of the tank.

Hope this will help you out.

What causes soot build up in burner chamber


Sounds like you're not getting enough combustion air.
If you have a draft motor or blower make sure it is running.

My hot water tank won't start, i can hear humming sound from the blower, but blower doesn't run, ant it does no heat.


If the blower will not run, then the unit will not fire up due to a safety hazard. If it is a capacitor start motor, then you may have to replace the capacitor, otherwise you will have to install a new blower motor. Hope this helps
