Gurgling/Popping

When in operation, a "gurgling" or "popping" sound emanates from the water heater tank. This is consistent with sediment accumulations at the bottom of the tank. The sediment may be sand and/or flakes of rust and suggests that maintenance (partial draining of the tank) has not been accomplished.

6.2.1 - Service and Grounding Equipment, Main Overcurrent Device, Main and Distribution Panels

Zinsco Panel

Zinsco panels may overheat and portions of it melt. If a breaker melts to the bus bar of the panel and can no longer adequately trip in case of an overcurrent or short circuit, an extreme amount of power from the outside electrical supply surges into a homes panel and circuits. Once that happens, it cannot be stopped or shut off manually. Electricity will burn until it runs out of fuel or the wires melt. The panel could overheat and catch fire, causing serious harm to a home and its occupants. Recommend immediate replacing of panel by qualified electrician.
