Electramate 2000 - No Hot Water!

Post  JDGreen17 on Wed Nov 07, 2012 3:53 am

Hi,

I recently moved into a new flat in Wolverhampton and there is an Electramate 2000 water heater installed (I'm not sure on the power rating). Since moving in in September the water has been pretty temperamental, so much so that you can't guarantee whether or not you are going to be able to have a hot shower in the morning before work. One more than one occasion the water hasn't even begun to heat up.

Over the summer months we used to turn the unit on/off at the wall 20 mins or so before it was needed, which worked 60% of the time. Over the last few weeks we have left it on permanently and the problems seems to be even worse.
We haven’t yet switched the central heating on.

It seems as though I can have a very short hot shower in the morning most of the time, but then there is no further hot water for the rest of the day. My housemate is yet to have a decent morning shower in his bathroom. As far as I can tell there seems to be no particular pattern either, but we very rarely have any hot water about midday - early afternoon.

Any information you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated, with the winter drawing in it would be very nice to have guaranteed hot water throughout the day.

Thanks in advance

James.

As you are pretty new to having your unit.
Before going into great detail.
Have you got the user manual?
And the installer manual?
If not down load them for free at Gledhill's website.
Read the user one first.
Then the other one.
After that going through the commissioning page would be a good place to start.
Next would be is the unit hot?
No hot water?
Is there heating?
If the unit is hot
And there is heating.
Then you are narrowing it down a bit.
Failing all the above, look at all the posts on here ref your unit.
But you really need to look a bit further.
