My dishwasher Goldstar model WDT790My3 water does not get very hot. Lukewarm at best even if I turn on hi-temp wash. Any idea how to fix this?


Your heating element is not functioning. Check the connections to the heating element, physically and electrically, then replace the element if necessary.

GE standing electric oven range. Oven lower element will not heat up.. only gets Luke warm, can still touch it, although the upper oven element gets very hot. What could the issue be?


Sounds like the bake element - do a visual check and look for blistering or cracking. If it looks normal, unplug the oven (or flip breaker for wall oven) and then you can remove the screw holding the element and pull it forward enough to unplug it and do a continuity test with a multimeter. If it test bad, replace the element.

We just installed a hot water heater that's


1) Test elements, and if elements are good, then replace both thermostats.
Takes about 20 minutes. Power is off.

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html

2) Label on side of water heater shows volts and watts.
For 4500 watt elements, you need 30 amp breaker and 10 gauge wire.
Move water heater wires to different same-size breaker.

3) Open the links and do the work, or call plumber to do work, or call manufacturer for warranty coverage.
If your wire and breaker are problematic, then service is not free.

Lukewarm water...tank empty...how do I fill it if it is supposed to fill automatically from an outside line?


It looks like this brewer has a fill lid on top. If you remove the screw on the lid you can remove it and pour cold water through (1/2 gallon per pot). If the brewer was energized and NOT filled with water before hand there is a good chance that the heating element burned up. The reason you would still get "lukewarm" water is due to the keep warm heater around the tank. It is a low voltage warmer that keeps the reservoir warm without the main heating element kicking in.

Water is lukewarm. Not hot! Two year old tank, 220 amp is present. Both sides of relay have 220.


Make sure you have power going to elements from thermostats. check lines going to elements.

Luke warm water is the result of an element gone bad most of the time. One at th etop gone will cause you to get just luke warm water and one at the bottom gone will give you real hot and then cold.


The elements are not to exspensive so if it has two you might as well replace both of them. If you just put 1 new one in it will work the old one till it goes.

Cut power off and cut water off to water heater and drain heater, open hot side on any faucet to help it drain. once drained remove element they have a tube type socket at hardware stores for the removal of it.

Put elements in and fill water heater till all air is out of lines before turning power back on. make sure water is flowing out of all faucets before turning power onto water heater.

The reason being is the elements has to be in water not open air in tank or it will blow new ones.

Coffee is only lukewarm and tastes terrible. can the element bemodified to produce more heat


No, but you could replace the element with a new one.
First unplug and make sure the wires have a good clean connection.
You may discover a loose connection and be able to put the unit back in operation.

However if you replace the bad element with a new one.
You might find buying a new coffee maker is not much more than the element. Typically when these little monster go bad. Toss and get another one. Plus the bad taste could be coming from tainted water.
Lukewarm water will grow bacteria over night.

Good luck!
and be safe!

Lower element only gets lukewarm bosch single oven model HBL536 a uc


The problem I had was with a Bosch model 536 wall-mount oven, not an airconditioner. Decided it was the lower element that was at fault. Although it showed continuity (dual element 48 ohms and 114 ohms) readings should be approx 24 ohms per element.


Thanks
