A Quick Guide for Troubleshooting a Hot Water System

If you’re having problems with your hot water system or heater, simply follow this guide before calling a plumber to repair or replace the system. This guide may save you money and prolonged inconveniences. In addition, it’ll give you more understanding about the kind of problem you’re having. Note that this troubleshooting guide is specially prepared for electric water heating systems.

Warning!

Before doing anything, ensure you have experience in using a multimeter. Make sure you follow all the safety rules set in place when dealing with electricity. Also, never attempt to open access panels of the water heater system with power on. Remember to double check that power supply to the system is turned off. Avoid trusting the label on the circuit breaker.

Use your multimeter to inspect an outlet to know whether it’s working before inspecting the interior components. Here are some troubleshooting tips for tank-based electric water heating systems:

Problem 1: The Water Is Not Heating

  • Check the circuit breaker or fuse box.
  • Inspect the power connection to the water heater unit.
  • Check the limit switch or reset button on the unit.
  • Check the upper element.
  • Also, inspect the upper thermostat.

Problem 2: The Water is Not Hot Enough

  • Check whether the temperature level is set to a low level.
  • Check the system elements.
  • Inspect the system thermostats.
  • Assess the size of the water heater.
  • Check for any loose wiring.
  • Check the fill or dip tube.

Problem 3: The Water is Extremely Hot

  • Adjust the temperature level.
  • Ensure the thermostat fits tight on the water tank.
  • Inspect the grounded element.
  • Check whether the thermostat is functioning.

Problem 4: Recovery of Hot Water is Slow

  • Adjust the temperature level.
  • Check the elements.
  • Check the thermostats.
  • Check the wiring.
  • Remove buildup of sediment on the elements.

Problem 5: Noisy Water Heater

  • Check for buildup of sediments on the heater elements.
  • Check the trap nipples.

Problem 6: The Water Valve is Releasing Excessive Amount of Water

  • Maybe the water is extremely hot.

Problem 7: The Circuit Breaker is Tripping Repeatedly

  • There might be a shorted wire in the system.
  • There may be water leaking somewhere around the element.
  • Issues with the grounded element.
  • The circuit breaker is weak.
  • The circuit breaker is undersized.
  • Grounded limit/thermostat.

Problem 8: Leakage in the Water Heating Unit

  • Check the orifices for any leaks.
  • In case the tank is leaking, then replace it.

Avoid Wasting Your Money on Unqualified Hot Water Plumbers

Problems related to hot water heaters are serious. They should be handled with extreme caution. Thus, you need to be extra careful about the plumber you will hire to fix such problems. You should only consider a licensed plumber with vast experience.

Hot water units tend to experience issues especially when you need them most. Imagine waking up early in the morning only to find your hot water system is delivering cold water, or you come home from a vacation only to find water leaking from the ceiling or your ground floor is flooded. This can be quite inconveniencing and frustrating.

While it may sound somewhat sensational, when the hot water system fails, you will certainly panic. You will then start searching for a nearby plumber, probably from Yellow Pages, the Internet, and even recommendations. However, the situation will only worsen in case you end up hiring an unlicensed plumber.

Poor installations of hot water units and the ever huge demand for water heating systems, including competitive pricing among manufacturers, have made manufacturers and dealers to be very strict with warranty claims. Thus, you would never want to hire a shoddy plumber since they will void your warranty.

However, product failure is totally different from failure as a result of poor installation. There’re some problems that may occur due to poor installation, especially when working with unlicensed plumbers. These problems may include bad odors from drains and pipes, low or extremely high water pressure, flooding, mold, and dampness. There can also be serious problems such as contamination of drinking water, burns and scalding, breeding of diseases, and even tank explosions.
