    Good lord, lost my entire post.

    Did a bunch of testing. When I turned everything off, I'm showing an OHM reading from a terminal to the metal casing of the element on the top element only. I think this is why I'm getting the 120v across the element when the thermostat is off.

    new element time?

    Yes, sounds like time.

    I posted this today and it got lost.

    Thought it might help you.


    Good Luck.

    yah I saw that thanks. I think it's the element. I guess the element AND the thermostat got fried.

    The support replaced one of the RAID drives last night.
    When I checked today, we had lost two weeks worth of posts.
    They looked at the drive they pulled and found the last two weeks, but we did miss the early part of today. Sorry about that.
