Swift Hot Water Unit


My hot water service stopped heating on electricity I checked and changed the element which was pretty ordinary . I gave it a basic service and cleaned out the tank and also changed the anode . It works on gas not a problem just not sure with the power side any ideas please .biggrin

Perhaps give them a phone call. I found them very good, in fact great when I had an issue.

Did you ever find out/fix the hot water problem, we have gas ok, had 240vt in Mt Isa, got to Mataranka and no 240 hot water, and gas still ok, just interested in your outcome. Cannot work out why there is no way of troubleshooting the problem, we cannot even get a manual to tell you where everything is like anode etc. Our Motorhome is only 12 months old, so any one else out there may have a clue as to where you find stuff let me know, thanks

Have you checked the 240v power point to make sure it is still plugged in ?

Yes, that's always the first thing we check and make sure everything is normal, if they only supplied as I said a troubleshooting page, but nothing, so we will have to wait till we go back to NT and ring them and ask where we can take it, it's still under warranty, as we live in NSW and they are in Melbourne, they might have an agent in the Territory, I just thought maybe someone out there might have an idea what could be the problem

You are so right vhman, absolutely zilch, I think 4 pages we found in with other useless crap, but no where is there troubleshooting, have tried every possible wordings on Google, there sight, I give up, as I said will wait till we cross the border again and ring them, they might have an agent in NT

 Ron-D, to get to the anode on the Swift hot water heater, just undo the cold water inlet hose at the heater, and you will find the anode slips in there. (open a hot water tap first) if you don't want to get sprayed.    

It is just a piece of aluminium tube slipped over a plastic holder. You can reuse the holder and put your own tube on, costs cents, or buy a new holder with aluminium tube from swift for about $30 odd dollars with freight.

Ps, I pm'd you on another matter.smile
