Common Electrical Water Heating System Problems
We’ve seen and fixed a wide range of electrical water heating system problems. Here are a few of the most common issues that we encounter:
No Hot Water
If you’re not getting any hot water from your electrical water heating system, there are a few possible causes. One is a faulty heating element. This is a component that heats the water in the tank. Over time, heating elements can become damaged or corroded, which can cause them to stop working. Another possible cause is a malfunctioning thermostat. This component is responsible for regulating the temperature of the water in the tank. If it’s not working properly, it may not be telling the heating element to turn on.
If you’re experiencing this issue, it’s important to call a professional electrician like us to diagnose and fix the problem. Attempting to fix it yourself can be dangerous and may cause further damage to your system.
Strange Noises from the Tank
If you hear strange noises coming from your electrical water heating system, such as popping or banging sounds, it’s likely that there’s an issue with the heating element. Over time, sediment can build up on the heating element, which can cause it to make strange noises as it heats up. This can also cause the heating element to work less efficiently, which can lead to higher energy bills.
We recommend calling a professional electrician like us to diagnose and fix this issue. We’ll inspect the heating element and determine the best course of action, whether that’s cleaning or replacing it.

If you notice water pooling around the base of your electrical water heating system, it’s likely that the tank is leaking. This can be caused by a number of issues, including corrosion, a faulty valve, or a damaged tank. Whatever the cause, it’s important to address the issue as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your system or your property.
As electricians we’re not best qualified to resolve leaks, so we’d recommend you contact a plumber.

That’s why we offer expert diagnosis and repair services to get your system up and running again as quickly as possible. Here are some common problems our team can help you with:
Immersion heaters are a common type of electric water heater found in UK homes. If your immersion heater is not working, it could be due to a faulty thermostat, heating element, or power supply. Our team can diagnose the issue and replace any faulty components to get your immersion heater back in working order.
Electric Boiler Heating Elements
Electric boilers are another type of electric water heating system commonly found in UK homes. If your electric boiler is not producing hot water, it could be due to a faulty heating element or thermostat. Our team can test these components and replace any faulty parts to get your electric boiler working again.
Checking the Power Supply
If your electric water heating system is not turning on at all, it could be due to a problem with the power supply. Our team can check the power supply to ensure it is working properly and diagnose any issues that may be preventing your system from turning on.
Testing the Thermostat
The thermostat is an important component of your electric water heating system that controls the temperature of the water. If your water is not heating up to the desired temperature, it could be due to a faulty thermostat. Our team can test the thermostat and replace it if necessary.
Inspecting the Heating Element
The heating element is responsible for heating the water in your electric water heating system. If the heating element is not working properly, your water may not be heating up at all. Our team can inspect the heating element and replace it if necessary.
Preventative Maintenance for Electrical Water Heating Systems
We recommend regular preventative maintenance to ensure that your system is working efficiently and safely. Here are some key areas to focus on:
Regular Inspection and Cleaning
Regular inspection and cleaning of your electrical water heating system is essential to ensure it is functioning correctly. We recommend a yearly inspection by a qualified electrician to check for any faults or potential issues. During the inspection, we will check the thermostat, heating elements, and wiring to ensure they are in good condition. We will also check the water tank for any signs of corrosion or leaks.
In addition to the yearly inspection, we recommend cleaning the tank and heating elements every six months. This will help to prevent the buildup of sediment and scale, which can reduce the efficiency of your system and lead to costly repairs. We can perform this cleaning service for you, ensuring that your system is working at maximum efficiency.
Replacing Worn Out Parts
If we find any worn out or damaged parts during our inspection, we will recommend replacing them as soon as possible. This includes the heating elements, thermostat, and any damaged wiring. By replacing these parts promptly, we can prevent further damage to your system and ensure that it continues to function correctly.
At SE London Electrical, we only use high-quality replacement parts from reputable manufacturers. This ensures that your system is reliable and safe to use.
Upgrading Old Systems
If your electrical water heating system is old or outdated, we recommend upgrading to a newer, more efficient model. This can help to reduce your energy bills and provide you with a more reliable system. We can advise you on the best options for your home or business, taking into account your specific needs and budget.
All of our work is carried out in compliance with the latest UK regulations and safety standards. We are NICEIC certified, which means that we are qualified to carry out electrical work in accordance with the latest industry standards.
