Common Hot Water Heater Problems
Problem: No hot water
Potential Causes/Solutions: First things first, make sure your heater has fuel (for a gas water heater) or power (for an electric model). Next, gas water heater owners may wish to check to see if the pilot light has gone out and, if it has, try to relight it by following the directions on the water heater label. Electric heater owners can check the circuit breaker panel to see if it has tripped; if it has, this usually signals a bigger issue that is probably best handled by a professional.
Problem: Leaking hot water heater
Potential Causes/Solutions: Finding a puddle near your hot water heater generally means there’s a leak in the water heater itself or one of its components. Some components may be replaced, but if the tank itself is leaking the only option is to replace the water heater. For homeowners who’ve suffered basement damage from a water leak and don’t want to get burned again, there are now leak detection alarm systems that alert you immediately and shut off the water supply to help protect you from damage.
Problem: Not enough hot water
Potential Causes/Solutions: This could signal a problem with a heating element in your hot water heater. Most electric water heaters have two heating elements, and insufficient hot water often means a problem with the lower element or thermostat. However, sometimes the problem may be that your household is using more hot water than it has in the past. A thorough assessment by a trained technician can help you determine whether your system is suitably sized for your needs or if there is a mechanical problem causing insufficient hot water.
