Water Heater Shut Off Instructions – Electric or Gas

Both electric and gas water heaters can be turned off by following the steps below. Use the diagram to find out where each step is done on the water heater.


Electricity: Switch the water heater's circuit breaker from "ON" to "OFF."
Gas: Turn off the dial at the top of the thermostat.

(2) TURN OFF WATER SUPPLY. Turn the handle CLOCKWISE until the water stops coming out. If turning the handle doesn't stop the water, turn off the main water valve for the whole house.

(3) DRAIN WATER HEATER. Connect a hose to the drain valve at the bottom of the tank. Place the other end of the hose down low and let the rusty, hot water drain somewhere it won't hurt anything. Open a hot water faucet in the house to let air into the tank.

(4) OPEN THE RELIEF VALVE. Turn the handle so it sticks out straight or up. BE CAREFUL, because boiling hot water could be let out

If water is leaking from the bottom of your water heater, this usually means there is a crack in the tank inside, and you will need a new water heater.

Here are some reasons why you might not be getting enough hot water:

  • The gas control valve (thermostat) on a gas water heater could be broken.
  • One of the electric elements or thermostats in an electric water heater could have burned out.
  • If the dip tube inside the water heater is broken, hot water might flow through your pipes less quickly.
  • If your water heater is 8 years old or older, or if you live in an area with hard water, sediment could be in it. This will make the water heater make less hot water.
  • If this is your first home, the tank may be too small for your needs or smaller than the one in your last house.
  • Your use of hot water might have changed over time.

Most of the time, "rumbling" is the sound of hot water escaping from sediment at the bottom of a tank as it expands. This is not dangerous, but it shows that the water heater isn't as good as it used to be.

Most likely, you are talking about the overflow pipe that is connected to the water heater's temperature relief valve. This is a safety valve that lets extra heat and pressures out of the water heater if the pressure gets too high or the water heater gets too hot. Sometimes this pipe will "blow off a little steam," which won't hurt your water heater. However, if it leaks often or all the time, there may be a problem.

When it's time to get a new water heater, you can choose from many different kinds. When choosing a water heater, the most important things to think about are:

  • the size of your home and how you use it
  • your future water demands
  • how long you plan to stay in your current home
