Water Heater Repair Services for Homes & Commercial Facilities
Replacing a water heater can be costly. At Stephens Plumbing, we suggest routine water heater repair and maintenance for common issues to extend the life of your unit.
Common Water Heater Issues
The Water Heater is Generating a Low Supply of Warm Water
This may be a simple thermostat issue. If you’re experiencing a low supply of warm water, try turning up your water heater a few degrees. Turning up the temperature will help you and your family use less hot water as you shower or bathe, leaving more hot water to go around. If the circulation of warm water remains low in your home or commercial property, call a plumbing repair specialist at Stephens Plumbing by phone at (630) 968-0783 or book an appointment. We offer water heater repair solutions in Wheaton, Westmont, Lisle, Oak Brook, Naperville, Downers Grove, and other locations in Illinois.
No Hot Water is Being Produced From My Gas or Electric Water Heater
Depending on what kind of hot water heater you own, gas or electric, you could have one of two issues. For gas water heaters, a lack of hot water is typically due to a blown out pilot light. This can be caused by a faulty thermocouple or pilot control valve. A broken heating element is usually the culprit for electric water heaters. If the gas or electric water heater in your home or commercial space is not producing hot water, we recommend scheduling a meeting with our technicians. We offer dependable and efficient water heater repair services in Downers Grove, Illinois and a wide variety of other areas.
The Water Heater is Producing a Weird Odor
If your water heater begins to give off an odd smell, this can be solved by changing the anode rod in your water heater. If you are still experiencing an odor after changing the anode rod, it may be time to call a water heater repair service.
Water Heater Noises May Be a Sign of Sediment Buildup
Is your water heater noisy, or making more noise than usual? It may be due to sediment buildup in the tank. When sediment builds up in the water tank, the heating element begins burning off this sediment, causing the noise. If you notice an odd noise in your water heater, our plumbing specialists recommend draining the water rank to remove the sediment. To avoid buildup, we recommend draining your water heater tank once a year.
If the noises from your water heater persist after draining the tank, call a plumber at Stephens Plumbing by phone at (630) 968-0783 or schedule a routine checkup online. Our team offers water heater repair support services in areas such as Clarendon Hills, Plainfield, Naperville, Burr Ridge, Downers Grove, and Lisle, Illinois.
Water Leaking From the Hot Water Heater Tank

Signs You Need a New Water Heater
Not sure if your water heater is in need of replacement? Here are a few signs it may be time for a water heater replacement or installation project.
Rusty Water From the Water Heater is a Sign of Corrosion
Rusty water can be a sign of internal corrosion, the first sign that your water heater is headed for a leak. Once a water heater has begun to break down and rust, we recommend contacting a plumbing specialist to replace your water heater.
Lack of Hot Water From the Gas or Electric Water Heater
If a water heater isn’t doing its job, heating water, a replacement may be necessary. While there are water heater repairs that can be done, in some cases the heating element has simply died, making it necessary to replace your water heater.
Common Banging & Rumbling Noises From the Water Heater
If you’ve drained your water heater and still hear banging or rumbling coming from it, this may mean too much sediment has built up and hardened, causing your water heater to lose efficiency. This build up, overtime, can cause cracking and water heater leaks, so it is best to replace your water heater when sediment build up is noticed.
Water Heater Tank Leak
A leak is a sure sign a water heater needs replacing. A leaking water heater cannot be repaired and needs to be replaced as soon as possible to avoid flooding and damage to flooring, walls and other valuables.
