Woodys Replacement Parts:

Thermostat Bracket, Thermostat, Pressure Valve, 240 volt 750 watt, 240 volt 1200 watt and 110 volt (American Element).  Gaskets included with Elements.  Note: this is the newer version of the elements and will fit ALL Woodys water heaters.

 

Note: Woody's Water Heaters went out of business in June 2011.  This is a two page extract from an original Woodys document.  No other spare parts are available, except what we offer below.

Sales Note: If you order the element, thermostat and pressure valve, then you will have the best chance to extend the service life of your water heater.

Technical Note: If the element has burnt out and/or the water heater is older than 10 years, then you should also replace the thermostat.  Our 1200 watt elements are a direct replacement for your old element, however they are of a more modern design implemented by Woody's in about 2002.  We also found the 1800 watt element caused more failures to original Woodys hot water systems so we only manufacturer the 1200 watt element.  The 1200 watt element is safer for shore based connections in that it does not take as much current from your 15 AMP shore power line meaning less risk of extension cord overload and tripping the circuit breaker.  The 1200 watt element presents less load for smaller generators.

It is also recommended that you take time to carefully check all wiring connections AND ensure that the earth wires are still attached to the body of the water heater and in good condition. (Many customers report the original Woodys 240 volt earth wires have water damage or the earthing connectors have simply fallen off!  This is very dangerous, but easily fixed.)

How to get extra life out of your Woody's Water Heater:  Our experience is that internal marine water heater tanks fail (ie. leak) because of fresh water electrolysis and pressure valve failure. 

- To prevent electrolysis occurring, run a tinned wire between the body of the motor (engine) and the water heater.  Ensure that your water heater is properly 240 volt earthed and if in doubt always have a qualified electrician do this for you.  (We make no claim to be electricians.  Use a licensed electrician!)

- The second cause of failure is that the pressure valve is not tested every six months.  If the pressure valve fails to operate, then you will blow the sealed water canister and the heater cannot be repaired.  If the water heater is over 10 years, then consider replacing the pressure valve when replacing the element and thermostat.  To test the pressure valve, exercise the small lever on the valve a few times water will flow from the valve.  If you notice that water continually flows out the valve when its closed or even drips  or is stuck or difficult to move, then its time to replace it.

Warranty: A one year warranty is offered for these elements IF you have purchased and installed a new thermostat from us at the same time.  (Like everything else, elements have a natural life span. A faulty element can damage a thermostat.  Likewise a water heater run dry can damage both the element and thermostat.    A damaged thermostat will quickly destroy a brand new element.  A faulty pressure valve will blow the internal tank.  It is a vicious circle!)
