Every water heater has a thermostat. if it did't then the water would continue to heat until the pop off valve blew. not a good thing. The thermostat is usaully under the front panel and has a dial on it to change settings. Note that some newer water heaters have an electronic thermostat but still has adjustments.

Is this thermostat wiring correct for this Rheem water heater? also it only has one thermostat...shouldnt there be 2?


Heather, first know that most water heaters are 220 volts and are dangerous to work on unless you know that the power is off. Second it is hard to say any more without knowing the model number and the make. Third from the picture, a thermostat breaks the current in one side of the circuit and that appears to be depicted. There are usually TWO heating elements not thermostats.

Hi my vulcan gas hot water service isn't getting hot enough anymore? please help me?


check first if you have good water flow to and from heater. lift pressure release valve on inlet and allow few sec to flow, same with outlet hot water safety valve.

remove front cover from the heater, you should see your gas connection and thermostat knob.

check if gas is burning evenly and on whole surface, check for leaks on the heater and on the lines to and from the heater.

if you did not find any faults, no leaks, safety valves work correctly, check thermostats settings,

wind it down to minimal, then turn it to about 1/4 value (you did not specify model but this should do, widening arrow or numerical values ar self explanatory), lift hot water safety valve for few seconds, then open any hot water tap (faucet if you are an american...) and check if gas ignites and burns.

set thermostat to about 2/3 value and again, lift hot water safety valve for few seconds, then open any hot water tap. check if gas ignites and if water is sufficiently hot, if too hot - wind it down to say 1/2 way, if too cold, wind it till resistant and then back off a bit, DO NOT EVER LEAVE VALVE OR THERMOSTAT ON MAX!.

if none of these help - you need either, change the thermostat or heater itself.

if works - you solved the problem, close the tap, close the cover and use the system as you normally do.

i am always recommending use of insulation on the hot water system, it saves heaps of money over the life of the system.

hope this will help you - do not forget to vote... :-)

How do i reset my honeywell thermostat


Remove thermostat from wall, leaving base plate on wall.
Model number appears on back of device.
Google search thermostat model in following format: Honeywell xxxx32 thermostat .pdf
Adding .pdf to search parameter will yield product manual.
Also while thermostat is off the wall, change batteries located in compartment on back of thermostat. These batteries must be changed periodically, for example each 3-4 years.
