If no water in it when switch left on for hydro use, you probably burned out the element. They burn out pretty quick when no water. You have to shut off breaker to it for safety, and remove back cover where you see hydro cable going in to access it.

Have atwood 6 gal water heater for an rv. Heats water on gas mode but no hot water in electric mode? Help please!


Sounds like selector switch is bad. I would start there first. If not the switch, heating element probably burned out.

Converting Atwood RV Gas hotwater heater with Electric ignition with a Gas/Electric


If they are on outside of tank , I'm thinking your new tank has motor-aid feature as well. That is used to circulate coolant through from engine of motorhome while driving and it keeps water heated. That feature usually adds to price of tank. Hope you didn't pay for some feature you"ll never use.

I have a Atwood 10 gallon electric/ propane water heater on the Hornet travel trailer I purchased used. There are two switches on the wall, one is an on/off switch that lights up and the oither is just an...


The two switches control the water heater either in the gas or electric mode. The switch with the lights would be for the gas operation, and the switch without lights would be for the electric mode. Prior to operating either switch, make sure the water tank is full of water. Turn your hot water tap on, if water comes out, tank is full. Connect trailer to 110 Volt source, turn circuit breakers on, Place switch without lights to on position. If water does not heat in 45 minutes, Install new heat proble. The gas mode should be repaired by someone that is familiar with that system. Atwood can provide you with a local service center.

When gas switch on an atwood water heater is turned on, the electric switch blinked and unit doesn't light


It usually only lights when starting up on propane, or if it didn't ignite for one reason or another. Usually light off indicates working o.k. Are you sure the electric element hasn't been on and water is heated already? Carefully open pressure relief valve slightly and see if water is hot or cold.

Electric heating not working


Have you checked for additional switch, perhaps on rear of water heater on side of cover that wiring goes into for element. How far have you gone with it?
