SS Marine Hot Water Heater
Author Last Post
Hi Michael,

I'm going to tackle the water heater on our T4100 later this spring. It has the original Atlantic Marine stainless steel heater, Model T10E.

I would greatly appreciate any pcitures, part numbers, and sources you used. I'm planning to replace the thermostat and heating element.

Kind regards,

David

Matt, thank you for the information and source of supply.  The hardest part to find is/was the gasket.  I ended up making my own but this looks like a great source.  I did pull the tank.  Once the potable water lines were disconnected and the coolant lines drained and disconnected, there is only two screws aft of the tank holding the tank in place.  On the forward side, the tabs for the tank are inset into a wood moulding piece that has little slots mitered out of them for the tabs.  Once the tank was empty, it was pretty easy getting it in/out of the boat...so much easier to work on outside the boat...as you probably know.  Thanks again for the help and replying.  r/ Mike
I also have a Tartan 4100. I have replaced the electrical heating element twice. The first time I didn't replace the thermostat. I found the heating coil on the Internet. The thermostat I got from Holland Marine Products.

Did you replace the tank? I can't see any way of removing it.

Regards, Matt

Hot water system is back in operation.  All new parts and wired as per the original wiring diagram.  I also installed a bronze ball valve (w/ drain) in the coolant lines to/from the heater to easily isolate the heater from the engine and to provide an easier way to drain the engine of coolant.  If anyone is looking to repair their SS hot water heater, I have all the information including pictures, part numbers and sources of supply.  It's nice to have h/w again...r/ Mike
Ron, thanks...I think I got it figured out.  I wired it as per the SS Hot Water diagram I had vice the way it was wired in the boat.  I tested it today on the bench and it worked just fine.  I'm going to install it back in the boat tomorrow.  Thanks again for replying...r/ Mike
Wiring for the hot water heater is a relatively standard. Be happy to review the old and new electrical diagram if you cannot find the direct information you are looking for.

Quoted TextI'm replacing the element, thermostat and high temp cutout switch (haven't been able to find the gasket for the heating element yet), but have a question on the wiring.  I have a wiring diagram for 110 for the heater (original) but the heater was wired differently than the wiring diagram...so my question is that if you have the 11 gal SS Marine Hot Water heater, how is it wired?  Pics are the easiest way...and I know it's not easy to get to but any help would be appreciated.  I'm tempted to wire as per the diagram and not how it was wired...although it lasted 20+ years wired differently.  Thanks for your help...r/ Mike, Tartan 4100, #6
