No hot water

Hello
Iím getting no hot water from my hot water heater, or Iím getting hot water for 30 seconds then it gets cold.

Iíve read the Read This First thread and I think the answer is there but not sure.

Iíve added a couple of photos in the hope someone can explain what value system I have and how to make it work

Thanks

All your valves are wrong in pic for use. They are in winterization positions. Hold on

See your pic I edited. You may have to zoom in to really see the difference between the cold water inlet valve and the crossover valve.


You need to turn each valve 90 degrees (There are 3 valves total)


1. Turn your cold water inlet valve 90 degrees to allow water in the tank (it's currently in the closed position)


2. Turn your hot water outlet valve 90 degrees to allow hot water out of the tank (it's currently in a closed position)


3. Turn your crossover/bypass valve on the line connecting the hot and cold water lines together 90 degrees to close it (It''s currently in the open position).

Once you adjust your valves as per the instructions in the previous post they should look like this:

The problem now is if you had the cold water inlet valve closed (as in the winterization position) so no water is actually inside the tank...... and turned on your water heater heating element, you may have destroyed the element..


Can you give us more details on what all you have either done or attempted?
