Water heater stopped working
« on: October 31, 2017, 05:52:37 PM »
Ran out of water. Turned heater off and used what water was left in the water heater for wife to finish shower. When I filled the fresh water tank I ran the hot side till it flowed with no air in it but now I canít get any hot water. We have the Atwood 6 gal gas/ ele heater. Help!

Did you turn the hot water heater back on?

Is it possible that the shower faucets are open and the water turned off on the shower head? That could cause the hot water to mix with the cold.

Is the pressure relief valve on the water heater warm to the touch? Careful, potential burn hazard if it's hot.

Are you getting a good flow of water out of your hot water faucets?

Yes. Pressure is fine and no air in the line

Have you checked your circuit breakers? Maybe they've tripped. You'll need to shut them of then back on to reset them. Do you have power coming into the RV? There's something missing here just can't put mu thumb on it. Do you have propane? It may be a combination of no 110 volt AC power and no propane.

No triped breaker and have plenty of propane. Pressure is good on hot side with no cavitation. This has me stumped

Make sure you don't have a blown fuse, either on the WH control board or in the fuse panel.

Inside the water heater cover is a thermal cutoff fuse connected to thermostat. It is inline with one of the wires. Remove and check for continuity.
