I do not know what heat control valve you are referring to on an electric water heater. On an electric water heater it has two heating elements in most cases. One at the top and one on the bottom. One of these is more than likely defective. Turn the power to the water heater off at the service panel or at a disconnect switch. Now take the covers off both heating elements. Check each one with a ohm meter to see if you have continuity. If your meter reads nothing that heating element is bad and needs replacing. On each heating element is a thermostat to set the temperature. Set the upper element to 120 degrees and the lower element to 130 degrees.

Worcester 35cdi water and heating luke warm


First thing is to know when it was installed? Check the top of the unit and see if it has in and out marks on it. If it does are they correctly hooked up? Installing them backwards causes this.

Maybe the problem is bad faucet cartridge.

My gas shower is either luke warm or very hot whats wrong


If all the other faucets work, then the problem is the mixing valve in your shower. You will need a new shower fixture.

After draining solids from the water heater I now have mostly luke warm water. And had no problem before.


the dip rod in heater may have failed. did you see any white chips in sediment while draining. if so its the dip rod, they do fail sometimes. If the water heater in your home was built between 1993 and 1996 and you are beginning to find small pieces of plastic in your faucet aerators, shower nozzles and washing machine supply tube, or if your water temperature is suddenly not as warm as it used to be, the source of the problem may be your water heater's dip tube. The purpose of a dip tube is to carry cold water to the bottom of the tank, where it is heated for use. The defective dip tubes tend to crumble and disintegrate into the tank. Over time, its plastic ! have a very good day !

I have abosch 1600 ps aquastar 4.3 gpm indoor when i turn hot water on it all fires up but no hot water comes out only luke warm water why


Water heater is heating water but only luke warm water arrives at faucet.
Open TP valve and confirm that hot water is available.
If water at TP valve is hot, then problem might be plumbing-related, for example crossover.
