The water heater can leak from the top or bottom. It is a common problem with electric and gas water heaters.
In a gas or electric water heater, a top leak can be caused by loose-fitting of the hot outlet or cold inlet pipes.
Sometimes T&P valve may have failed or the inlet valve may be leaking. If we talk about the bottom leaking, it can happen because of normal condensation.
A small amount of water can come out from overflow pipes. In some cases, it has observed that the actual tank is leaking and the only solution for this is to replace the water tank.
The electric water heater has two heating elements that help it to heat the water.
No hot water common reason could be the circuit breaker has tripped. If that is not the case then, heating elements are failed to function properly, if that is so you can replace it.
You can also replace a faulty thermostat, for fixing no hot water problem.
In a gas water heater, you can check the gas flow and pilot light it on. If the proper gas flow is present then, the thermocouple may not be functioning properly.
It may be not sensing the pilot light is on, and does not ignite the gas. You can replace the thermocouple, in case it is not working properly
If you are not getting enough hot water from your electric or gas water heater, it could be a problem with your thermostat.
You can increase the temperature on the thermostat and it will produce hot water.
A faulty thermostat, faulty element, and loose wiring can not heat the water inside the heater. You can replace the faulty thermostat to get enough hot water.
If your thermostat temperature is set too high then it can produce hot water. If you can’t adjust the thermostat temperature, there is a chance it could be faulty.
Replacing the faulty thermostat is the only option to control your water temperature.
If too many sediments are built up inside the bottom of the tank, any kind of leak, too much pressure inside the tank. All these reasons are responsible for the weird noise from the water heater.
