I have a hot water boiler with 3 zone valves and 2 circulation pumps. I see no relays wired to pumps. Pumps run constantly


Sounds like a lot of unknowns from your article. Here are some basic checks

- if they are the honeywell zone valves and you try to open them and get resistance than 9/10 times the t-stat is not calling for heat and the valve should be closed
-if stat is calling and wants heat zone valve lever should be free of resistance when moving it
- 15-20 psi is a little high but could be normal based on the size of your place and the temperature you are reading these pressures at
-with the pumps always running seems to me that the pumps are hard wired to a constant electrical source, if you want optimal control install a taco zone controller

Hot water tap creates an annoying noise in the mh. The noise is coming from the Atwood hot water heater. (2007 Coachmen Mirada).


Like a buzzing noise? Check valve where water lines connect at back will make a buzzing noise, if you only hear it when running hot water and not when running cold. Remove and replace it after shutting water off, and draining tank down. Be sure to shut off any hydro to electric element prior to draining.You can buy a replacement check valve, or just put a short 1/2" pipe nipple in there instead and reconnect your line, and refill it. noise should be gone .

There is a high pitched constant sound coming from behind the electric water heater......no water leakages, I turned off the electric and it continued. I ran the hot water for a long time.......it did...

There is no valve inside the tank.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-it-works.html
The constant noise sounds like water heater is running full time, except same sound after electric was turned off. Is there a check-valve nearby? What happens when you open-close shut off valve located on cold water line above tank?
Is there a water leak inside house, or is TP valve running water into a drain line?

When we start to use hot water and the hot water heater heats up,there is a loud moaning sound coming from the hot water heater. It has made the sound since installation, but lately it seems to be getting...


Tank Water Heaters need to be flushed now and gain to get rid of MINERAL buildup. At the bottom is a water valve where you can attach a hose. Run the hose out doors and then open the valve to allow the water to flow freely.
That was easy. When water heats up, especially where the elements or gas flame are close to the heater bottom area, it may crackle or pop, but that is only expansion and contraction which is normal. Just watch to see if any water drips onto the floor which is a sign that the wall has been breached and the heater needs to be replaced.

It quit working and I removed panel and reset it.now it seems to make the water hoter and it is making constant noise and leeking a little from the pressure relief valve


The pressure relief valve is bad if it is leaking due to too hot of temp or it has gone bad. If it is hotter turn down the temp on thermostat and see if it quits dripping..

If it's making a noise it may be heating the water the way above the limit for the relief valve.

If it is the relief valve they have them at most hardware stores and can be replaced. When installing use teflon tape on threads if this is the problem.

Beeping noise


E2 means hot water over shot, make sure to check boiler hot water system to make sure zone valve or control is staying closed when the call for boiler hot water to the water heater is isolated. Sometimes a zone valve will fail open or not close properly causing hot boiler water to constantly feed the water heater.

My electric reliance water heater is making a constant noise


it might be hard water in the heater. the hard water flakes and when your water heater turns on it creates some movement in those hard water flakes and makes a popping and hissing noise then when it comes to temperature it should stop. the temperature and pressure relief valve shouldn't make this noise. but if you stick your finger in the pipe and it is wet then you might have problems some where else. let me know if it is
