I just replaced an element in my hot water heater and now that I am
finished, can't get the tank to fill back up. I shut off the
electricity to the tank, (I couldn't get the cold water valve to move
so I turned off the power to my pump also) hooked a hose up and
drained, replaced the element. I turned the pump back on and now I
can't get water to fill up in the heater. I have cold water so it is
not the pump. Please help. No the power is not turned on to the hot
Thanks for your help.
Open the cold water valve to the tank.
Go to the highest water faucets in the house, and turn on the hot
water valve (bath tub is good). This will let the air out of the
system. when the tub starts to have cold water come out of the
hot faucet, you know the tank is full.
