5 Reasons Your Water Heater Isn't Working
Water heater issues can arise for several reasons. Below is a list of the most common ones we handle. Call our team right away if you’re experiencing any of these issues.
Is your water heater powered by gas or electricity? If you have an electric water heater, the issue could be a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Sometimes the issue is as simple as the water heater being unplugged or problems with the cord. On the other hand, if your water heater is gas-powered, the issue is likely a lack of gas. If you can’t figure out the problem, let our team take a look—call us today.
If your water heater stops working, it could be an issue with its thermostat. Single-element water heaters won’t produce hot water if the thermostat is malfunctioning. On the other hand, some two-element water heaters have a thermostat for each element. The top thermostat can control the water temperature at the top of the tank, and once that water is hot enough, it’ll divert power to the lower element. However, if the top thermostat isn’t working, you won’t have any hot water. Call our professional plumbers if you’re struggling to resolve this issue.
The pilot light is responsible for igniting the gas burner for your water heater. Issues with a pilot light can range from defective gas valves, disruption in the gas flow, moisture build-up, or flooding. Without the pilot light igniting gas, a dangerous build-up can occur. Sometimes, all you need to do is reignite the pilot light to resolve the issue. However, if that doesn’t work, you should call your local technician.
Some modern water heaters come with electric ignition, which uses a solid-state circuit to control ignition. Using a sensor to measure voltage, the electric ignition system is proven to be safe. Issues with electronic ignition are usually due to a clogged system, which prevents the electrical current from being read properly. If you are not receiving warm water in your kitchen, the source of the issue may be a malfunctioning electronic ignition system. Our team of emergency plumbers offer innovative water heater installation and repair services to homeowners in Oak Brook, IL. Our staff will perform an inspection of the electronic ignition system to diagnose and fix the issue.
Temperature & Pressure Relief Valve
The temperature and pressure relief (TPR) valve is a safety feature intended to prevent excess pressure from building up in your tank. If the TPR valve fails, the pressure build-up can lead to an explosion that could cause property damage or fatal injury. To help prevent disaster, you should test your TPR valve annually. You can also schedule maintenance with us to ensure your water heater is safe.
