4 Things you can do right now if you have an electric water heater, and no hot water….. or you can call us and we can do it for you!

To make things as easy as possible, I have tried to break things  down into a few steps. Before you even consider trying to determine what is wrong with your  “electric water heater”, you must have an electronic volt meter  to properly inspect both controls. If you are uncomfortable with testing electrical circuits, please do not read any further and get professional advice.


Step 1

Locate the electric panel in your home or condo and you want to find the breakers that are marked for water heater. Please note, just because it says “electric water heater” does not mean that it is accurate. In many cases, it may not be marked at all.


Step 2

While the breaker is still in the on position, remove the upper plates on the tank, a flat head screw driver normally does the trick. On the top, you will see a black and red wire coming down providing power to the top control. Put your volt meter on the 2 screw heads and make sure you are getting proper voltage. If you are not, seek the help of an electrician to provide proper voltage to your controls. If you are getting proper voltage, turn the main breaker off, and proceed to step 3.


Step 3

Confirm that the power is off by retesting for voltage. Now , starting from the top 2 controls, remove all the wires, and re-tighten the screws. Please note, take a picture 1st, to make sure that you put all the screws back properly. Use an ohm reader to test the bottom control, it should read between 11 to 15 ohms. Test the top control by placing your special meter on the  screw heads on the left, if bulb gets bright, it’s working, if it does not, it needs replacing.


Step 4

Now repeat those steps for the identical 2 controls at the bottom.

This is the fastest way that I know of to determine what is wrong with your “electric water heater”. There are still other things to take into consideration, such as….  how old is your existing water heater? Does it make sense to repair, or simply replace? If one of the failed parts went bad, does it make sense to replace the same upper or lower control part as well.

Part 2 of this equation is how much is your time worth? Just because you know how to “troubleshoot”, or “fix it”, does not always mean that you should. My last tip is that if the bottom of the upper, or lower control fails, it requires a special tool to remove. Please make sure to properly drain the tank first, and properly fill before turning the power back on.




Google Home Depot Water Heater Complaints
I needed a new water heater, against my better judgement, I dedded to go with Home Depot to get the unit installed. The installer said additional items were required for an approved installation. These 3 additional items along with taxes were $391.00. This was in addition to the tank and there installation fee. On calling Home Depot about the prices for the 3 items (more than the cost of the new heater), they said they have no control over what contractors charge.

Purchased GE hot water heater 2008- with a 12 year warranty only to findout does not cover labor beyond the 1st year. One week after purchase it blew out the theromstat, have had to have 3 major repairs in the 1st year. Year 2 it blew a breaker and an element. Labor not covered but parts were sent. Now both elements are bumt out again. I looked on website and there have been multiple complaints on GE units -they should not be able to sell and be responsible for faulty products homedepotcomplaints
I recently purchased a new water heater and installation from home depot. Shortly after the installation, I went to work, only to come home to a major flood. I called home depot while standing in an inch of water and they said there was nothing they could do about it! It took exactly 1 week to file the daim with home depot which the plumber denied. It cost me $3500.00 to repair my home from flooding caused by home depot and ifs third party sub contracted labor. If your thinking of home depot (DON’T DO IT) ifs not worth the hassle or aggravation your going too go through ( 9 to 5 installation window, unskilled labor, and time waiting in line, scheduling service.) Totally disatisified customer.

We purchased a 40 gallon water heater at home depot on 12/22/2009 to be installed for a master bath addition, we couldn’t even take two 1 0 minute showers back to back. So I called the number on the tank only to be told no one could look at it since the sale date was over a year ago and even though we bought the nine year warranty it was only good for the tank. I told the lady what the problem was, she told me that 40 gallon tank only puts out 28 gallon of hot water. I asked why then was it called 40 gallon and she told me it holds 40 gallon of water but only heats 28 gallon. I wouldn’t recommend a ge hot water tank to anyone!

 Don’t Be fooled when purchasing a water heater from a company that hires Sub Contractors!

Purchasing a Water Heater from Home Depot and Other Home Centers Creates a WIN-WIN for Everyone. (NOT)
(There is a small intital savings for the homeowner, and hundreds of service calls for professionals after the first year of installation)

4 Things to Consider Before Purchasing From a Home Center
1.) GE Water heaters are only 75% efficient. A 40 gallon water heater delivers only 28 gallons of water.
2.) After 1 year of installation, you are on your own regarding labor charges.
3.) Hidden installation fees are routine, on top of the tank and installation fees. (removal of old tank, pipe and fitting charges.)
4.) Extended Warranty tanks still will not cover labor after year 1. If they do not have the same exact model number of the
one you purchased and your tank leaks (they conveniently change numbers every two years), they will give you a $150 credit
towards a new install after year 2, and your still on your own regarding installation.
