Electric Water Heater High Temp
Posted by John on October 10, 19100 at 19:55:57:
I have a Rheem 40 gallon heater in our attic. A few days ago it tripped out due to very hot water. Since then I have replaced the upper thermostat, lower thermostat, 4500 wupper element, and the 4500w lower element- in this order. Each effort did not fix my problem. I thought this was all there was on an electric heater that could cause this type malfunction. I am at a loss now. Can you offer any suggestion short of dragging the unit out of the attic for replacement?
