HOT WATER HEATER TROUBLESHOOTING
Gas hot water system problems
No hot water – check the pilot light
Not enough hot water – clear the vents
Pilot will not light or it won’t stay lit – follow unit’s instruction manual, if the problem persists, it could be something more serious such as a burst valve
Water too hot – check the thermostat
Black or rusty coloured water – change the anode rods
Hot water tank is leaking – call a repairman, dealing with gas is hazardous
Solar hot water system problems
No hot water – Check the water heater circuit breakers
No hot water in the morning or a high electricity bill – the piping system and valves may be incorrect as the water is cooling off throughout the night rather than during the day when no one is home
Pump running at night – if the controller switch is set to ‘automatic’ then the pump runs continuously at night, call a technician to change this as it is set upon installation
Knocking noises in the tank – the control may be set low and the pump is shutting off during sunlight hours
Electric hot water system problems
No hot water – check the circuit breaker or the thermostat
Not enough hot water – check the thermostat or the element may need to be replaced
Takes too long to reheat or the water is too hot or cold – adjust the thermostat (if it is defective, contact a repairman to replace it)
Noisy heating elements – either a scale build up or the incorrect elements, it may need a simple clean or replacement
Black or rusty coloured water – element scale build or dissolved anode, again, clean or replace
Foul odour – flushing the tank and cleaning it would be the best option as a build-up of bacteria likely causes the odour
Pressure relief valve leaking – contact a repairman to change the valve
Hot water tank is leaking – depending on the leaking point, it could be a bigger problem than replacing a part, contact a repairman
