Water Heaters - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


I had the same problem. The valve is not seating properly. I first took a plastic bag and placed it over the unit so it didn't spray all over, then, pushed the button several times to try to flush it. I then shut the water supply off (or move lever to bypass) and removed the cannister that holds the filter. I activated the red button several times until it looked like it seated well. Keep as much water in the cannister(sump) as you can and still have the filter seated properly. Screw it back on, and open the water supply slowly to fill the rest of the way. Don't push the red button again, but instead open a faucet in your house for around 5 minutes to let air circulate out. If the red button still leaks, you may have to try a few times. If it leaks just a little it may stop after a day or so. Once you get the red button to stop leaking, don't push it again! Just always use the open faucet method to work the air out. There will still be some air bubbles for awhile, but will work out within a day

Water heaters only have a top and bottom thermostats which seldom go bad. Heating elements wear out most often. If you are running out of hot water too quickly kill the power drain the tank and remove bottom heating element using a special large socket. Visual inspection should tell you if it is melted. If it is ok check the top heating element. If the heater was on and the tank not full the top element will go first. Elements never operate at the same time

Fuses blow for a reason, usually a short circuit. Could be time to replace the heater.
