SOURCE: electric hot water heater 40 gallon ge

Typical H2O heater with 4500 watt elements should draw around 18 amps. Check to make sure the connections for the wires at the breaker are tight, loose connections will cause the breaker to heat up. If all of this is good and the breaker is still heating up, it is time for a new breaker.

SOURCE: need a schematic for nordyne intertherm model

Nordyne no longer has the E1 model in there literature not even in their archieved documents but I have included a link to for the E2 model which will be very similar to yours. These units are very simple and all only vary slightly. It should give you enough info to get you through what you want to know.

Electric Water Heater Wiring Diagram


If you are changing a water heater thermostat on your hot water heater, or would just like to troubleshoot your hot water heater, you may want to know how it is to be wired.

Here is a diagram of the way a normal electric hot water heater with two elements that run non-simultaneous will be wired. This means that only one element at a time will be working and have power going to it. The top element will heat water until it is heated to your set point and then it will switch the power to the lower element to heat the bottom of the tank. This gives you some hot water quickly, and then heats the rest of the tank.

Nordyne furnace FEH017HA-04 the fan runs full force when the ac is on but half speed when the furnace kicks in


That is probably normal if it is electric heat to slow the air over the heating elements. Even some gas units do this. Check to see if the unit blower motor has wires for multiple speeds.

How long does the model 81v52d last in years?


Did you clean sediment out of tank when replacing elements?
Did you replace thermostats? Thermostats go bad, or get out of calibration.
Copy following link for tank-type electric water heater troubleshoot:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html

Test elements.
Sounds like lower element is burned out.
Clean sediment out of tank. Check for water leak running hot water out of tank by putting ear against pipe.
Replace both thermostats.

Electric water heater will last 20+ years, IF ...
Electric water heater is totally unique because it can last forever with part replacement using parts from hardware store, as long as tank does not rust because of depleted anode rod, and pressure is kept below 80psi.

Annual water heater maintenance will pay you $10 a month, tax free money in pocket, by avoiding tank replacement.

hi,

if its an electric water heater then it sounds like a calcified or shorted element. you have to shut the water heater off at the breaker box, drain the tank and replace the elements theres usually two. they make a special element wrench at the hardware store they just unscrew and screw back in. make sure all your electrical connections are tight..

I have a Intertherm model# FEH-015HA It is no longer blowing heat


I'm a dealer for a Nordyne product and I was on the website trying to find your model number and I can't find your unit anywhere even in archives. Can tell me if the a/c coil sits on top of the unit? Also, can you varify the model number? But anyway, even if Nordyne doesn't make the heat kit anymore (which I doubt) you can restring the heating element anyway. You need to remove the heat kit from the system and physically look at it to determine if it is bad. You can do a continuity check as well. The heat kit is easy to remove. On most Intertherm models, the heat kits sit right behind the breakers near the bottom of the air handler. Also check to see if the tstat is actually calling for the heat to come on. That can be done with a volt meter. Also check that the sequencer isn't faulty as well. If I could have the correct model number, I can pull up a wiring diagram of the unit and tell you exactly where everything is located. If you can varify the model number and also the serial number, I can call Nordyne monday morning and find out exactly what you need and if they are still making the heat kit. Just let me know what you would like me to do.

I have a intertherm model feh-017h electric


It's the heat kit in the unit that is causing the problem. You need to do a continuity test on it to eleminate that they have shorted. This is the only thing in an electric furnace that will blow a fuse on it. Intertherm is a Nordyne product for manufactured homes. Of coarse they still sell them! I am a Nordyne dealer. Also a sequencer can not cause a fuse to blow. The service guy just wants to make money from you by installing a new unit. You can either re-wire the heat kit or you can purchase a new one and have it installed. If you are referring to the heat kit for 159.00, then that's a fair price for it if you are a non licensed person.
