  • How do I reset the electric back-up on my Solar Water Heater?

    1. Locate your "Little Gray Box", the electrical timer box, and turn the red lever to the "OFF" position.

    2. Locate the rectangular-shaped upper access panel on your solar water heating tank and remove the outer cover. (This will require a screw driver)

    3. Remove the insulation on the inside of the panel. This will expose your water heater's thermostat.

    4. Press the round breaker button, usually black or red, ensuring you hear a click when you press it. This will reset the electrical back-up to your solar water heater.

    5. Once insulation and panel cover is returned to original position, turn the red lever on your "Little Gray Box" to the "ON" position. Allow 45-60 minutes for water temperature to increase.
