Electric Water Heaters
Electric water heaters can present a number of problems. Their thermostats can go bad, the tanks can leak, the heating elements can burn out, relief valves can pop off, and all sorts of related trouble can come up. Gas and electric water heaters are very different in the ways they work. They both do the same job, but they don’t do it the same way. Let’s begin our troubleshooting lesson with electric water heaters and close it with gas units. I think it goes without saying, but beware of the electrical wires and current involved when working with electric water heaters. As you probably know, there is a lot of voltage running through the wires running of a water heater. Once the access cover of an electric water heater is removed, you must be extremely careful not to touch exposed wires and connections.
Relief valves that pop off
Relief valves that pop off signal one of three problems: the relief valve is bad, the water heater is building excess pressure, or the heater is building excess temperature. The problem is usually just a defective relief valve. In such cases, replace the relief’ valve and monitor it to see that the new valve works properly. If the new valve releases a discharge, investigate for extreme temperature or pressure in the tank. The temperature of water in the heating tank can be measured with a standard thermometer. Discharge a little water from the relief valve into a container and test its temperature. If it is too high for the rating of the temperature-and-pressure relief valve, check the thermostat settings on the water heater. Turn the heat settings down and test the water again after the new temperature settings have had time to work. If the reduction on the thermostat settings does not lower the temperature of the water in the tank, replacement of the tank is usually the best course of action. If you suspect the water heater is under too much pressure, you can test the pressure with a standard pressure gauge. The easiest way to do this is to adapt the gauge to a hose-thread adapter and attach it to the drain at the bottom of the water heater. As long as the drain is not clogged, you can get an accurate pressure reading. You could also adapt the gauge to screw into the relief valve and test the pressure by opening the relief valve.
