My hot water is cold, what should I do?

If your electric hot water system isn’t working, this usually means that there is no electrical energy source.  Sometimes the main switchboard has been turned off due to a tripped circuit breaker, if it has been turned off, flip it to the ‘on’ status.  If it trips again, you will need to call an electrician to troubleshoot.

Other potential issues:

– faulty heating element
– Faulty thermostat
– Accidental grounding
– Tripped reset button
– Defective wiring
– Water Leaks
– An undersized fuse of the breaker

If your hot water is not working, contact Taylor Made Electrical to book an inspection.
