I have called a repair man and he said to take the cover off the bench seat so I can get to the back side of the water heater and find the three relay switches. Turn the all straight up and down. Problem is I do not see any relay switches. Can someone please point me in the right direction? Thank you!
Relay switches? Sounds like he was describing the water valves that are used to bypass the hot water heater for winterizing...
There is one in the cold (blue) line, one in the hot (red) line, and one that bridges the hot and cold. To use the hot water heater, the valves on the hot and cold lines should be open (handle runs along the lines), and the valve that bridges hot and cold should be closed (handle is 90 degrees to lines).
Turn on hot water faucet and allow tank to fill. Then turn on electric or propane to hot water heater.
Hope that helps...
