DIY Water Heater Repair

Water heaters are often forgotten about until there is no hot water or the water gets cold halfway through the shower. If your water heater doesn't heat quickly enough, doesn't heat at all, leaks or your hot water smells like rotten eggs, Sears PartsDirect’s troubleshooting guidance can help you narrow down and fix the problem.

When the hot water disappears, follow the steps in our no hot water video to figure out what’s wrong. If your water is too hot, watch this troubleshooting video to see what the cause might be. Both videos will point you toward what part to replace and our DIY repair guides will walk you through the repair.

If your water heater displays an error code, look it up on our error code charts and then follow the troubleshooting steps to find out what part to replace.
