Water Heaters - Page 3 - Answered Questions & Fixed Issues


Not sure about modern heaters with lots of lights but inside there is usually a pressure switch that prevents operation if the water pressure falls and a temperature switch that cuts the power if the temperature rises too high - in a single heat unit there are only two wires supplying the heater element and the temperature is controlled by the water flow. It is straightforward to use an ohmmeter to check the element but with a multi-heat unit there is likely to be a switch to contend with and several connections to the heating element.
In this case it is a good idea to draw out the circuit so it makes more sense - if the element tests ok, it is likely one or the other of the safety switches is faulty.

Internal flow switch may not be working properly. Shutoff electricity and gas if available. Check to ensure flow switch closes with water flow.

Does the unit try to light? Is there an initial flame? Check for proper voltage at electrical connector. Check for proper gas pressure. Flame sensor maybe the cause of the failure.

Please post model and serial information to better help you with your problem. Not all GE water heaters are made the same or utilize the same controls throughout the years.
