What is the heat recovery time for a 40 gallon hot water tank?

My power vented 40 gallon gas water heater fan motor will not shut off after the tank is fully heated. What can be done to fix this problem?
Answer . Check the thermostat. It may be stuck on. Try changing the temperature setting and see how it reacts. If you cant get it working by playing with it, you may ha…ve to have it replaced.
To allow for the expansion of heated thot water
That depends on how much water is drawn from the tank and how often it is drawn.
fuel /electric shut off
Something insignificant with a good heater.
Um it depends i use a 100 watt
you will see a large brass nut with a plastic cover and electrical wire coming from it, normally at the top and to one side of the hot water cylinder, this is the immersion he…ater, there are two common lengths, 27 inch and 11 inch. Also, there are side entry immersion heaters. Some cylinders have both top and side, the lower, side mounted being the main one and the top acting as a booster for the hot water . The old term of these mountings were, Sussex entry=top mounted, Essex entry= side mounted.
At the bottom front edge, there should be a hose connection. Attach a garden hose to it and then open the valve. Because sediment can collect at the bottom of the heater, they… can drain slow sometimes, but it should drain eventually. Turn the heater off before draining.
To fasten the heating in a particular object. This is caused by the the hot ar coming from the flame to the object above. This is called convection, if the heating element is …placed somewhere else convection won't occur the only heating classification available will be radiation, which is the transfer of heat with the space in between the heater and the object. In simpler if you put on top of the fire its hot gas can help in heating the material.
With either a gas flame or electically.
If you just filled the tank on a 40 gal. about 30 to 45 min.
In most cases, about 15 minutes.
You first turn OFF the power to tank, now remove the anode rod, ( a large bolt head on top of the tank, attached to what may remain of your rod) . then attach a hose pipe to t…he bottom fitting, lead it outside or to any drain, turn on the valve by it, turn OFF your inlet valve and open the relief valve so air can enter the H/W tank. Let the whole tank empty -takes about 30 -40 minutes. Next, when empty turn ON the inlet valve and let cold water run through the tank and out the hose, now you will see the sludge coming out. Let this run 5-7 minutes or until water is coming through clean. Now you are done . Let it fill, and fit new anode rod as it fills ( weight of the water helps) then turn on power when full.
The expansion tank is used for back pressure affecting ur water heater
As high as the highest setting available on the tank.
