Water Heater Troubleshooting

When your water heater starts acting up, it is a good idea to have a general idea of what is going on. For this you will need to do a little water heater troubleshooting. Gas and electric water heaters vary considerably when it comes to troubleshooting. This is why it is best to always call a professional instead of conducting a DIY repair on your electric or gas water heater. Some common issues experienced with water heaters are:

  • No Hot Water: Problems that cause a water heater to fail to produce hot water can vary. This is especially the case between electric or gas water heaters. Gas water heaters have a burner at the bottom. They also have a flue at the top. Electric water heaters are powered by electrical connections. Be sure to contact a professional when your water heater doesn't produce hot water.
  • Hot Water Runs Out Or The Water Is Too Hot: This can typically be attributed to a hot water heater that is too small for the hot water needs of your home. Sometimes, it can be attributed to the temperature dial needing to be adjusted.
  • The Water Is Discolored:When the water coming out of your water heater is discolored, it is usually caused by rust or sediment. A plumber may be able to flush and clean the tank.
  • The Water Smells Bad:When you notice that your water has a pungent odor to it, it is usually caused by bacteria buildup. A plumber will be able to use his expertise to repair a water heater that produce water with a bad odor. Some tomes this can be repaired by cleaning the tank and sometimes the anode rod will need to be replaced.
  • Your Water Heater Makes Unusual Noises:When you hear that your water heater is making a popping or gurgling noise, this can be the buildup of hard water in your tank. If you have an electric water heater, this can indicate the buildup of scale. Scale usually builds up on the heating elements. When the sound that comes from your water heater sounds like it is boiling, this can indicate that your water heater is overheating. This leads to dangerous pressure buildup.

When your water heater produces any of the above signs, then be sure to call Results Home Services right away. A water heater is, more likely, capable of being repaired before any of these issues escalate into bigger problems. Bigger problems also may lead for the need of a water heater replacement.

My gas water heater turned off. How can I turn it back on again?
First and foremost, you need to locate the gas regulator valve on the water heater. Then, turn the gas regulator valve to the "pilot" setting. Be sure to hold it down until the pilot has been lit. This makes the gas flow to the pilot burner. As you slowly let up on the valve, you will hear a "whoosh" sound. If you are unsure of how to start your water heater, be sure to contact us so that we may guide you through the process.
