The Geyser needs to be prepared for the cold days of winter as winter approaches.
The following are some common scenarios. Before enlisting the services of a technician, it is advisable to check a few things. Some simple examples include properly setting geysers, thermostats, safety valves, and earthing the house.
There may be a problem with the heating element or thermostat if the issue is not listed above. Heat is produced by the heating element, and the thermostat controls when the water is heated. When it comes to geyser repair, it is very important not to contact the local plumber.
The local plumbers have a tendency to hack the problem and come up with temporary and inefficient solutions because they don’t know all types of geysers.
Geyser not turning on
There are two possible reasons for this. The first is that the electricity connection may not be functioning properly. Your issue will be different if the electrical connection to the geyser is correct. The light indicator usually will not glow. Overheating is generally prevented by dripping geysers.
The overheating is monitored by a button. It may drip if the water heats up too much. However, the new models have incorporated a thermostat that will handle this scenario. The real issue is that there is no water and the geysers run continuously. It is possible to damage the entire Geyser if the heating element burns out.
These situations have a safety switch or button that drips. These are provided by Havells Geysers. However, when it drips, you must contact customer service or a plumber.
Geyser not working or No hot water
Geyser is turning on in this scenario. The light indicator is glowing. Everything looks to be in order. There is, however, no water. The hot water doesn’t work. How do we proceed? There are several possible causes.
- There is a problem with the water heating element. There may be a problem with the coercive force. It may be compromised.
- Geyser tank temperature is monitored by the thermostat. Water that is too hot is turned off, and if the water is too cold it is turned on.
Contact the manufacturer’s customer service if the heating element or thermostat is damaged. An authorized plumber or repairman will handle the issue on behalf of the brand.
Water not hot enough
Temperature settings are handled by the thermostat, as mentioned above. The thermostat stops working or malfunctions when geyser water is not hot enough. In this case, the thermostat assumes the water is hot, but it is actually cold, so it shuts off the geyser.
Geyser giving shock
Earthing should be checked first. An electric shock can be caused by faulty earthing. The shock is usually not experienced by all appliances. You should check anyway. When your electrical geyser is giving you a shock even with good earthing, it is very dangerous. An electrocute may result. Immediately stop using it if you experience a shock.
Geyser leaking water Or Geyser keeps tripping
Geyser valves should be checked for electrical connections. Loose valves lead to water loss. Tighten the valves to resolve the issue. Otherwise, excessive pressure may cause the problem. High-rise apartments often have this problem since water comes in with high pressure from the top.
Geyser keeps overflowing
With older electrical geysers, the water tends to overflow when the thermostat setting allows very high temperatures. Electric geyser tanks are designed in accordance with the size of excess overflow after boiling in the new models. However, if the valves become loose, overflow may occur.
Repair or Buy new one
If there is a small problem that can be fixed easily, it is better to repair it. The most important consideration is that if a geyser causes shock due to its age, it would be safer to replace it. The geyser equipment would have been old if the geyser is over 7 years old as well as a lot of coercion inside the tank and heating equipment.
The price of a new geyser varies according to the model and the capacity, such as 10 litre, 15 litre, and 25 litre. Well-known brands include Bajaj, Havells, Racold, and V guard.
