Answer . \n1. Turn off the electricity or gas to your water heater.\n2. Turn off the cold water supply to the tank.\n3. Attach a water hose the valve on the bottom of the tank.\n4. Open the hot water valve on any faucet.\n5. Open the valve on the water heater.\n6. When the tank empties close the… valve on the water heater, turn on the cold water supply, and let the tank fill about 1/4 of the way full to loosen any sediments on the bottom of the tank. \n7. Turn the cold water supply off and open up the valve on the water heater to drain the rest of the water.\n. \nIf you have large amounts of sediment in your tank you may need to repent steps 6-7. If at any point sediment clogs the valve or the hose turn on the cold water supply to "blow' the clog out. Also remember when the tank is draining there is no water pressure so the tank will drain slowly. ( Full Answer )
Answer . It could be due to a deffective element or possibly a build-up of sediment in the bottom of the tank.

Depends if it an ASME rated tank or a garbage residential as the wall thickness and pressure rating has to do with the weight
Normally to fit in it in a small place I remove the doors or possibly remove a section of the wall
Multiply the three measurements, length, width and height in inches to get cubic inches. 18 x 12 x 12 = 2592 cubic inches. Then multiply that number by 0.00433 to convert from cubic inches to gallons (11.22 gallons). You will be off a little bit, as most people use the outside tank measurements and …not the inside.

You can not answer that question without knowing more about the size of the hot water heater, the size of the stove and oven combo. How often the stove/oven is used, and how much hot water is heated. Water temp. is a factor as well.
If the hot water tank is off it is possible. It is also possible for the cold water going to the hot water tank to freeze. Insulate all pipes that are exposed - or let them drip (this is more expensive!)
\n20 years at least, provided the hot water heater is serviced and maintained by a plumber once a year.
It uses as many as you run through it, but who would want to heat hot water?
"One hour for a new water heater" for a NEW one. If its a few years old, Id wait about 2 hours or so. That way it wont get cold while you are in the shower, and it can refill at the same time that it dispenses.
There is a safe and slow way to do it, by turning off the water to the heater and removing both vacuum breakers and then opening the drain valve to the hot water heater. You can now drain it, which can take about one hour. However, depending on where the hot water heater is positioned, lets assume a…bove a bath or outside installation, you can turn the hot water off and open the flange on the face of the geyser and drain it in about one minute.

That depends on how much water is drawn from the tank and how often it is drawn.
Many residential 40 gallon water heaters use either 8 or 10 awg wiring. However, you should always consult with your local building inspection department and a licensed electrician.
depends on water pressure, but it should completely fill in 15-20 minutes. the water should be hot in another 20-25 minutes if it has been run completely empty.
There is not enough information to answer. What is the shape of the tank? How cold is it? How efficient is the heating system? How large a space are you heating?
That depends on both how quickly water flows out of the shower head (gallons per minute) and how hot the water is (ratio of cold water to hot water). Also depends on the recovery rate of the water heater. As you use up the hot water, the water heater is making new hot water, but not usually as fast… as you are using it. A high recovery rate will extend the time you have hot water. ( Full Answer )
The pressure depends upon the city/well pressure setting, but waterwill run through the pipes to your faucet as soon as the 40 gal.tank and pipes are full. Remember to remove the aerators when youdo any major changes as the faucet aerators will clog up with anyloosened debris.

Make the hot and cold connection, open the hot side of a faucet and turn the water on. As the tank fills, the air will come out the faucet until the tank is full.
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.
Hot water holding systems have been used as far back as the Romans. They particularly liked building hot water baths, of a communal nature. I would suspect that as soon as the copper and bronze age occurred, a shaped bowl was used to heat water.
The thermocouple runs from the pilot light to the control valve. One end sits in the flame from the pilot light and the other is screwed into the bottom of the control valve. It is a copper colored wire/tube about twice the size of the lead in a pencil. It should be beside the larger tube that runs …from the control valve to the burner. This is only on gas or propane heaters. They use the same type. Electric heaters do not have one. ( Full Answer )
That's going to depend on the temperature of the water before you heat it, and on how hot you want it to be when you're done.
How long does a 40 gallon electric heat water heater at 140 degrees take to heat up after restarting with cold water?
depends on the wattage of the elements along with the temp of the cold water but i would guess an hour or two
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 transf…er 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. ( Full Answer )

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 the bottom fitting, lead it outside or to any drain, turn on the valve by it, turn OFF your inlet valve and open the relief va…lve 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.
