Depends on source of leak: If gas water heater is leaking from bottom, then heater must be replaced.

Two flashes means that the high limit temperature has been reached. Once this happens, the temperature control system will shut off. Make sure that all element access doors are in place. Push the "Push to Reset" button to restart the temperature control system. The water heater will self test for ten minutes before it will start to heat. If you get the 2 flashes again then you may need to replace one or both elements. Each element should measure 5-25 ohms.

The "thermostat" is the knob marked "Temperature Control". Make sure that the operating mode is set to 1,2 or 3.

SOURCE: Our electric water heater doesn't work.

make sure it is wired correctly, check circuit breaker, check breaker built on to element. If all fails, and it is determined your not getting power to it, you may need a electrician. Be careful. good luck.

SOURCE: My Rheem: Model # 41V50,

Hi,

The drain valve can always be replaced so you can drain that with no worries....after it is empty open and clsoe the cold water valve to flush more...

As far as being large enough... that depends...

If you have a teenager like I do that takes 40 min showers in steaming hot water... no....
If you are running more then one shower at a time... then probably not...

The other thing that could have happened is that the dip tube for the cold water inlet has broken off or disintergrated...that happens...
Usually you will then get cold water and the gas valve will not yet have kicked on the burner, because the cold water is not going to the bottom...

If it is a new install... check thet the supply and return are hooked up correctly...

thermostat is gas vavle may also be bad, but not too likely...

How do I light my hot water heater?


It is pretty easy - make sure gas valve is open, change control know to pilot. Press the ignitor a few times and once pilot lights up switch control to warm or hot position.

I have a new Bradford white 40 gallon gas hot water heater. There are no single handle faucets. The hot water fluctuates between hot and cold. When I close both inlet and outlet shut off for the hot water...


Sounds like water leak.
For example, broken pipe... or water running out of TP valve.
That would explain variable hot-and-cold water at tap.
Turn off all taps, and observe if water meter is registering water usage.

Need conversion of lp to propane on a Bradford 50 gallon hot water.......


1) Do you mean NG natural gas to propane?

2) Most companies do not support gas-type conversion, especially with modern FVIR-compliant heaters. New burner, gas control are required at minimum.

3) Contact Bradford White and include model number, serial number that appear on label on side of unit.
