Electric Hot Water Problems
Posted by damacleod on December 20, 19100 at 16:00:17:
I have an electric hot water heater, and I have a problem.
It seems that it heats up the water and then blows it off the relief valve once it gets hot.
Is this a problem with the relief valve or is it my thermostat or element?
I checked the temperature of the thermostats and they are not turned up very high, well at least It did not seem so.
How do I check my thermostats and elements to see if they are working properly?
I am comfortable trying this myself, any helpful hints/tips would be greatly appreciated.
