Holly Springs, NC - 52 degrees and mostly sunny to 83 degrees and partly sunny, nice day.
Work all day, getting nothing accomplished. Hot water when I changed the water pump I had the water off, ok let me drain the hot water tank well a check valve has failed mostly closed and no hot water would flow out of the tank, well just a trickle. Accessing the backside of the water heater, that is not fun under the kitchen sink thru the cabinet. The microwave is not getting power from the receptacle, (this proved as I used an extension cord for power yesterday) the same time as the hot water went down, timing is everything, I went to look at the clock and the face was black nothing there. I check the circuit breaker box and nothing labeled for microwave. No other outlet is without power. Earlier in the day the clock was working and the range light was on.

I drained the water tank again and back flowed that with air pressure from an outside faucet and can blow air out of the hot water tank drain. Now I need to access the tubing in the kitchen cabinet.
