Broken Water Heater – If you start to notice a problem with nothing but cold water coming out of your faucets, you might have a broken water heater. The first step in diagnosing the problem is to try a couple of other faucets in other rooms and areas of your home. Let the water run for a few minutes, and try it several times over the course of an hour or two. If you still don’t have any hot water, your water heater is most likely the source of the problem.
Another tip is to check the water for signs of a rotten egg smell, since this can be a sign that the aluminum rod in a gas water heater has gone bad. If you don’t notice a smell, turn the water on at full blast and watch the flow to see if it sputters or the pressure is weaker than usual, since this can mean your water heat er has a clog. The next step is to check out the hot water heater; first, listen for any unusual sounds. Popping or cracking sounds might mean you have mineral deposits that can break off and cause a broken hot water heater. Look for signs of leaking around the heater, such as a puddle on the floor, mold, or cracks.
