Common issues with gas hot water systems

Below is a quick check list to troubleshoot problems you may experience with your gas water heating. However, remember that any gas hot water repairs need to be done by a qualified plumber or gas fitter . This is for your safety and to protect your warranty, uncertified work may void the warranty on the fitting or appliance.

No hot water

If you have absolutely no hot water, it could either be because:

  • the pilot light has gone out,
  • the gas supply has been turned off
  • that the gas valve needs replacement.

Follow your owner's manual when checking the pilot light and gas supply. Do not touch the gas valve, as this requires a licenced plumber.

Not enough hot water

If you don't have enough hot water or it takes too long to reheat, the issue could be

  • the thermostat set is too low and needs to be turned up
  • due to a build up of sediment in tank
  • you could have low gas pressure
  • your water heater may not be large enough for your requirements.

Refer to your hot water systems owner's manual before checking the thermostat. Adjustments may need to be carried out by a licenced plumber to avoid setting the temperature too high. Water over 50C can put your family at risk of in burns and scalds. All other issues need a licenced technician, contact Fallon Solutions.

Hot water with a bad odour

Sometimes water heaters have issues with hot water which smells, this can be caused by a faulty anode. An experienced plumber will be able to uncover the source of the odour.

Noisy gas hot water system

Another problem that we regularly see with gas stoage hot water is that the cylinder is noisy. Often this is not because of any particular problem, it is just a part of the normal noise. If you are concerned that this is not a normally occurring sound or it has just become noisy, the issue could be caused by:

  • a build up of sediment in the storage tank
  • condensation dripping onto the burner.

The best thing to do is call a qualified technician as they will be able to tell you whether it is a normal or abnormal noise.
