#1 I would check that you actually have 3 phases connected. #2 I would also check the ground. There could be a loose ground, or depending on the installation, the ground could be defeated by rubber washers in flex lines. Fix this by running a wire from the casing of the water heater to the pipe, bypassing the flex lines.
#3 Replace the thermastat. The thermastat has the reset button on it.

#'s 1 & 2 are very minimal in cost. #3 is still affordable.

Booster heater is leaking from the bottom'. I don't know the the make or the model.


Hi you may have taken care of this by now, but anytime they start leaking from the bottom, they have rusted out and you will need to have it replaced.

Tip

Bottled water appliance precautions




Hey Culligan Man!

My family has enjoyed the convenience and health benefits of drinking bottled water for several years. We have used a drinking appliance where the bottled is upturned and the water is gravity-fed. The water is then heated and cooled and served from hot and cold spigots. (I've seen other types of dispensers when the bottle goes upright inside the cabinet and is pumped into the water pitcher.)

The heated water quit working recently but the refrigerated part was OK. After noting how some members of my family used the dispenser, I have solved the problem. It is caused by the water level running too low in the mini water heater causing the element to burn out. Low water doesn't harm the mini-frig part. Low water levels are caused by using the bottle past empty and continuing to take water until it almost stops coming out. This "starves" the water heater, consequently burning out the element! Always replace the bottle on top before it gets past empty! If it gurgles considerably, it's filling up a nearly empty water tank probably with a burned-out element.

Maybe manufacturers can address this problem of too low water levels in subsequent models.

Regards,

Bob K.

It is not unusual for an element to fail when turned on after non-use.
Turn off the power, and check the electrical resistance of each element. If either is infinite, then it needs to be replaced. Also, if only one is bad, then it can cause the whole unit to malfunction and not heat the water.

My washer flooded my basement causing my pilot light to go out on my hot water heater. Now it won't ignite.


I don't know how high the water got but if only the burner was covered it is probably just dirt. Try replacing the thermocouple this is usually less than $10. If the gas valve itself was wet REPLACE THE WATER HEATER!!!!!!! Never trust a gas valve that has been wet!!!!! It can seem to work just fine but get stuck in the open position defeating all safety measures.

They should stand behind their product. You may have to take them to small claims court as they will probably not pay for any install charges. They will probably offer to exchange the tank.
