water heater

Is it normal when heating on electric to hear high pitched whine/buzz?

I hope so... ours does that. But, I notice it most often when I'm outside near the water heater access door or the slide window adjacent to the water heater is open.

I might be able to hear it when inside near the water heater, but I don't recall that at the moment. Our trailer isn't here so I can't verify that. Sorry.

Does it change when you open a hot water valve for a second?

Yes this is normal. Beside hearing the current go through the heating element, you will hear a bit of the air escaping through the relief valve for as water heats it expands and needs to displace the air so not to explode.

So, does that mean that if mine does not make whining and buzzing noises it is not working right? Mine heats water though.
