3 Common Water Heater Problems

Posted by MM Comfort BLOG

Whether you have a large or a small household, you depend on your water heater to supply you with hot water for bathing, washing dishes, washing clothing and more. Like other appliances, a water heater experiences issues from time to time. It’s a good idea to know what to look for so you can call the professionals to evaluate the condition of your water heater. The following are three typical issues seen in water heaters.

1. Not Producing Hot Water

No matter how long you run your shower or faucet in the kitchen, you don’t get any hot water. If your water heater isn’t producing hot water, it may be caused by a damaged heating element. Or, it could be caused by a faulty connection that’s preventing power from reaching your water heater.

2. Noises Coming From the Tank

Is your water heater making bubbling or hissing noises? These noises are some of the most obvious symptoms of an issue. When your water heater is making noises, it usually means there's sediment in the tank. The presence of this sediment is causing the bottom of the tank to overheat, creating the bubbling, hissing noises.

3. Leaking Water

Maybe you’ve been seeing water pooling around the outside of your water heater, or you see drips of water coming from the appliance. When water pools or drips from your water heater, it can point to corrosion of the tank. It may be rusting, allowing water to leak out.
