In response to Re: Electric Hot Water Problems
I did have a chance to check the thermostats and they were just above
120, I turned them down even further and the problem still persisted.
The water gets really hot and I have to turn off the water and the breaker
so I do not have all the hot water flow out the Relief Valve.
Still in need of some helpful information.
: 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.
