Hot Water Heater Not Working ? Here’s 9 Reasons Why!

The fact that your hot water heater is not working well is very frustrating

我们整天都在努力工作,所以回家洗热水澡洗掉一天的恶臭是唯一的天堂。有些人喜欢冷水淋浴,有些人喜欢冷水淋浴,无论您的偏好是什么,如果您的热水箱不工作,那么您什么都没有。

Hot water tanks could either be powered by electricity or gas. Either way, neglecting it may create certain casualties that you are not ready for. There may be quite some reasons why your hot water heater not working as it used to, but first, let’s confirm you are certain it isn’t working properly! We can confirm this with the following symptoms.

Hot water heater not working
热水器水箱是家庭中最重要的事情之一。

Your Hot water heater not working properly if:

•打开热水龙头,取而代之的是冷水。
• You’re 热水用完了.
• You notice pools of water around the hot water tank. (water heater leaking).
•配件有腐蚀。
•您得到一个 水中的鸡蛋臭味.
•您会注意到热水箱的顶部或底部生锈。
•会发出嘶哑的声音或其他异常声音。
•远远超出其保修日期。

Now that we’ve identified the symptoms of a bad water heater let’s go further to see why your hot water heater is not working as it used to. The water heater like most other appliances in your home requires proper maintenance, and because of our busy schedules and responsibilities, we often forget to get it checked out every once in a while. Proper maintenance is the only way your tank will last beyond its warranty, and most water heaters have a warranty of 5-10 years. To get your water heater tank to last you a long time here are a few things you need to watch out for.

Here’s why your hot water heater not working.

放弃

如前所述,维护不善会导致热水器损坏。因此,重要的是要有人不时检查一下。大多数人只是购买热水器而在最初的几年中忽略了它,这给它造成了损失。热水箱外部可能会发生渗漏,腐蚀,生锈甚至生长,这可能会导致内部损坏,并且慢慢地,热水箱可能既不产生热水也不提供净水。

另外,为防止加热器过度工作,万一您或您的家人正在度假,您将需要关闭热水器或降低其温度设置。这样做的目的是,当您不在时也不会继续泵送热水,没有人可以使用它。它可能会出现一些故障。

碎屑

A water heater is made up of two important pipes. One that brings the water into it (cold water supply) and the other that gives out heated water. Now the water that comes into the tank is filled with little debris, sand or sediments that over time accumulates at the bottom of the water heater.

If you fail to drain your hot water tank at least once in two months, or if you have never drained it these particles and sediments will synthesize with other elements in the water heater and lead to corrosion, and in more extreme cases, these particulates cannot be filtered out anymore. Causing you to notice dirt or sediments in your bath or drinking water and 硬水渍 on your appliance.

Most water heaters come with a standard drain valve that has the diameter of a garden hose. Now to drain out your water heater, you will need to attach the drain outlet to the Inlet of a small garden hose. Once this connection is tight and secure, you’ll need to get a bucket and then put the hose’s outlet into a bucket or bath and then turn on the drain valve. This will drain out all the debris that has accumulated at the bottom of the hot water tank. However, to prevent flooding, this set up should not be left unattended. If you are not draining your hot water heater properly, it will stop working sooner than supposed.

沉积物堆积

Each time the water is heated, limescale is created in the water heater. Being dirt, it builds up and accumulates and being heavier than water it drops to the bottom of the water heater. At the bottom, it creates an insulating covering that wears off the anode’s protection. It also causes the bottom part of the water heater to continually overheat (causing heat loss) as a means to get rid of these sediments, and this destroys the glass covering meant for protecting the water heater, causing a sort of electric burn out.

In addition, sediment buildup will reduce the overall water heater efficiency and you may have 不热水 不再。如果有一些东西,您会在所有设备上看到水垢沉淀 硬水渍.

发生这种情况时,水箱底部会松动并让步。这就是为什么底部可能会掉落并且里面的水会淹没周围环境的原因。

恒定高压

When the pressure of your water heater is always set to a very high degree. This is usually a common reason that kills hot water tanks, and owners do not usually check for this because they do not suspect that this can be a problem. High pressures in hot water tanks act as silent killers that slowly and steadily wear it out from the inside all the way out.

Now, the pressure of a hot water tank on its pressure gauge varies, but any pressure 高于80肯定会损坏您的热水器。它会损坏其阀门,管道以及淋浴和水龙头等接收设备。

如果您发现热水器的压力在破坏之前太高,则需要使用一个阀门来降低压力,还需要一个膨胀箱来减少热水器的工作量。膨胀水箱还将保护您的热水器免受热膨胀损坏。当热水器试图维持和调节其高温并在没有人使用的密闭系统中启动时,就会发生这种情况。

生锈的

这可以是内部的或外部的。外部生锈并不像内部一样有害。现在,每个 热水器 带有一个 镁阳极棒 防止生锈。但是随着时间的流逝并继续使用,该阳极会磨损,如果不立即更换,它将开始从内部吞噬热水器的其他金属部件,导致内部生锈。这种内部生锈会损坏热水器的内部金属部件,并让其渗漏和增长。

请务必注意,在正常情况下,如果热水器的保修期为5年,则可能需要等待一段时间才能更换 您的保护性阳极。但是,如果在热水罐中经常使用软水器,则需要在阳极达到保修期限之前更换阳极。这是因为水软化剂会更快地吞噬阳极并导致更多的生锈。

燃气热水器的腐蚀性烟雾

尽管这在大多数人中并不常见,但在燃气热水器中,燃气热水器会将空气从燃气管道吸入燃烧器。如果煤气管周围的空气有任何腐蚀性,它将自动磨损热水器,导致生锈和热水箱损坏。

因此,任何不产生氧气的材料或任何具有某些成分的材料(当被可燃气体诱导时被证明具有腐蚀性)应从热水箱中取出。漂白剂,杀虫剂,香水,熏蒸喷雾剂等材料,基本上任何不会释放氧气的材料,都应远离热水箱。

快速提示:切勿将这些腐蚀性材料与热水器放置在相同的封闭空间内,因为这只会加剧腐蚀性燃烧并更快地损坏热水器。

配件不合适和松动

If the fittings on the pipes, knobs, and valves of the water heater are loose, it may not function as well as it used to. This is easy and should be fixed immediately. Using a screwdriver, tighten these loose fittings and get your hot water tank in optimum condition. The looser the fittings the longer it takes for the hot water to come on.

Loose fittings also guarantee flooding of the environs of your water heater or your entire house. You do not want to spend a fortune on renovating that entire floor, hence tighten all loose fittings with a screwdriver.
容量测量不良

如果您想要一台应该为房屋中的各个供水站供应大量水的热水器,那么您将需要一个可以处理该容量的热水器。如果您没有就购买的热水器容量正确确定或测量您要让热水器放出的水量,您将最终过度使用热水器。热水箱将被过度使用,并且最终将停止工作,因为它决不是用于广泛用途的。

有些热水器仅用于浴室。其他人则通过房屋的出口供应热水,因此在购买前确定加热器要达到的目的很重要,以防止过度工作,损坏或破坏。

电流检查不足

这仅适用于电热水箱。如果未正确连接,则来自其他来源(如洗衣机或熨斗)的电会跳入热水器的连接中,从而导致热水器中无法承受的电流更多。这就是热水箱无法工作的原因,因为这会导致腐蚀和生锈,在更极端的情况下,可能会导致严重的电击。

因此,通过将进水管和出水管都连接到热水箱上方的6号铜线上,并将此连接线连接到主电源的地面上,以防止这种情况非常重要。

泄漏

如果您发现煤气泄漏(对于燃气热水器)或水池漏水,则您的热水器可能无法完全发挥作用。随着时间的流逝,连接到热水器的橡胶垫圈尺寸会减小,并开始泄漏。但是,如果您在这种情况下不在时,则需要准备购买新的热水箱,因为前者将被破坏。

泄漏会导致外部生锈,最终使锈蚀进入水箱内部,从而降低水箱中水的完整性以及热水器的功能。因此,每年至少需要拧紧所有挠性管线和活接配件两次。

    Thanks for pointing out that if you notice your water heater’s pressure is too high, it’s smart to get a valve to help reduce it. My husband has been trying to fix our water heater because it’s been leaking occasionally and also seems to have higher pressure than normal. I think it would be smart for him to talk to a professional about getting another valve or whatever else we might need to get it fixed so we can stop worrying about it.

    I definitely agree that neglecting our water heater can cause problems in the system that we’re not ready to handle. None in the house can remember when was the last time we checked our water heater until it stopped working this morning. It might be better for us to call professionals who can tell us if it needs a simple repair or a total replacement.

    我的热水器让我很沮丧,因为昨晚它漏水了,水变得越来越黑和浑浊。当您说热水器可能会损坏并且棕色水意味着应该将其关闭时,我发现这很有趣。我必须打电话给专业人员来更换它,因为它会多次泄漏。

    嗨,这是一个很棒的网站,恭喜!每个热水器都需要连接一个膨胀水箱吗?

    谢谢,

      你好雪莉,

      住房封闭的许多城市都要求房主投资于膨胀水箱。另外,如果您的封闭系统中没有膨胀水箱,那么热水器的制造商可能会使保修无效。

      希望这可以帮助,

    但是,就像您家中几乎所有其他家用电器一样,热水器也会发生故障。否则可能会导致骤冷甚至漏水。

    如果要更换热水器,您将很快了解到它们具有各种不同的形状和尺寸。有很多选择,因此请研究最适合您的选择。燃气热水器使用天然气快速加热您需要的水,而电热水器则使用电线圈。无罐加热器可以是电的也可以是燃气的,但不是加热整个罐,而是按需加热水。

    尽管这似乎是一个过于简单的解释,但您仅对排水管进行适当的排水就可以防止发生大量的泄漏和洪水,这会让您感到惊讶。排水管堵塞会导致水回流到您的管道中,并最终溢出到地下室。这些堵塞可能会出现在您家的下水道管线以及家外的市政下水道管线中。

    如果您在许多家庭甚至是较新的混合动力或热泵系统中都配备了水箱式热水器,那么在不需要时关闭热水器就可以每月节省几美元。这是因为即使热水器隔热良好,在热水等待您使用时,少量的热量也会从水箱中逸出。

    当您说热水器可能过度使用并可能发生故障时,我感到很有趣。昨晚,我注意到热水器中的水开始变得暗淡,浑浊,我担心它会变得越来越糟。我必须找到一个好的承包商来修理我的热水器。

    不错的博客。它肯定会帮助初学者更新他们的知识。您创建帖子所付出的努力非常有趣。期待很快在新帖子中见到您。

    但是,当您面对当今可用的各种无罐热水器时,您可能会感到无所适从。尤其是在有小孩或大家庭的家庭中,洗澡到洗手,洗碗到洗衣服都需要无尽的热水供应,几乎所有时间都需要热水。

    因此,我的热水器在淋浴刚刚结束之前就用完了热水,也许最近阳极就坏了?

    • 11:24 上午 上十二月 16, 2019上的Corro-Protec

      可能有很多不同的东西。我建议您联系您的管道工!

    哇,我一直在寻找。通过搜索vanagon列表档案来到这里

    我用柔软剂给城市用水加水。.我的阳极用了2年。柔软剂在阳极上是否坚韧,应该使用哪种类型。谢谢。

    • 4:55 下午 上六月 11, 2019上的Corro-Protec

      嗨,迈克尔,

      是的,柔软剂通常会使您的水变硬,镁阳极棒会更快消失。我们的核心Protec动力阳极将是一个很好的长期解决方案。

    很好的帖子。我也遇到了其中一些问题。

    您的写作技巧和博客布局给我留下了深刻的印象。这是一个付费主题,还是您自己修改了?无论哪种方式都保持高质量的写作,如今很少见到像这样的好博客。

    • 9:29 上午 上二月 11, 2019上的Corro-Protec

      感谢Paul的精彩评论!我们更改了购买的主题,我们很高兴您喜欢这个结果。

        安装了corro-protec的水箱需要多久排干一次才能防止生锈?

        • 8:40 上午 上十月 3, 2019上的Corro-Protec

          我们建议每年排干水箱,以限制水箱底部残留的残留物。
