  1. Don’t make any assumptions. It may be tempting to go and buy a part first because you think you know what the issue is. However, you will regret it more often than not. Take the time to figure out exactly what is wrong and then go and get the replacement part.
  2. Know what the issue is. In other words, depending on the symptoms there are certain things that could be wrong and other things can be ruled out. Make sure you are looking for the right things based on the symptoms that you have.
  3. Check the obvious first. No matter what the issue is, start with the most likely and move the less common issues based on the symptoms.
  4. If your issue is not enough hot water, look for working power to the water heater, crossed lines, pilot light, thermostat gone out.
  5. If the issue is a noise, look to see of the tank contains a lot of minerals. They make a popping sound when they get hot. Drain the water tank to rid it of mineral deposits but be careful. You may need to cut power to the unit first so follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.  
  6. If the issue is a leak, check the tank for rust, other things that cannot be replaced. Check for where the leak is coming from and determine if it can be fixed.
