Common Electric Water Heater Problems
There are many reasons why your water heater is not working properly. Here are a few problems you may experience:
- Worn out heating element
- Thermostat problems
- Tripped circuit breaker
- Power issues
- Pressure Valve Failure/leaks
- Water Heater Sediment
- Foul Odor caused by bacteria in tank
- Rusty Colored Water
- Noisy heating elements
- Takes too Long to Reheat
Heating Element Troubles and Thermostats
With an electric water heater, it is common for the heating element to give out. Our spe-cialist will test to see if one, or both of the heating elements within your water heater tank has gone bad.
Another common problem lies with the thermostats connected to the heating elements. If there is a problem with the thermostats, the elements will not heat up. In this scenario, no hot water may mean your upper element or thermostats has gone bad.
If you have some hot water but not enough, it may be the lower heating element/thermostat causing the problem. Our local Boston technicians will check your circuit breaker first to ensure that it is not tripped and reset the thermostats.
They will then check for power issues, elements, grounded elements, and other factors that may be influencing your loss of hot water.
Finding Hot Water All Around the Tank
The pressure relief valve regulates the pressure within your tank. If the pressure ex-ceeds the set range, the valve acts as a safety feature. If for any reason your valve fails to do so, the tank will release pressure by spraying water everywhere. We can repair your pressure relief valve for you.

Caution, Possible Electric Shock, and Gas Explosion
Call your licensed Boston plumber to resolve your problem safely. Be wary fiddling with the an electric water heater yourself as they have a powerful cur-rent in them. The shock from these appliances can cause serious injury or even death.
If your home or business uses a gas water heater, check to see if the pilot light is lit. Gas water heaters are more complex to troubleshoot than an electric water heater. A clogged flue or vent could be a problem, the gas valve, dip tube, or thermocouple are just a few of the possibilities.
A broken gas water heater is a threat to you, your family, and your home. If gas escapes, you have an explosive situation on your hands. The gas used by your water heater is odorless, but a special chemical is added so that you can pick it up and rec-ognize that there is a gas build up.
Our technicians continuing education and years of experience provides them with the best techniques, troubleshooting methods, and repair methods available. We will safely and accurately diagnosis your water heater problem and restore your hot water ASAP.
Other Reasons To Give Us A Call
Has your water heater started to make strange sounds or leak water? Your water heater may be telling you it’s time for it to retire. Most water heaters have a lifespan of 8-12 years. Depending how well your heater was installed and how well it was maintained, it may last longer.
Once it starts nearing the end of its lifespan, the years off accumulated sediments that have been heated, reheated, and hardened have grown large enough to make audible rumbling sounds while your tank is working.
Take this symptom seriously and start to save and schedule for a water heater replacement before it gives out on you suddenly, at the most inconvenient of times. Water Heaters rarely choose a convenient moment to stop working.
Whether you have guests over or lose hot water in the middle of the night, remember we are just a call away. Don’t ever hesitate to call us about an emergency that is what we are here for, 365 days a year.
