water heater cold water supply line
Posted by Anna Langley on January 02, 19100 at 01:23:43:
We have a 3 yr. old Kennmore Power Miser 5 40 gal electric water heater.The upper element burned out and hubby replaced it today with new element (Kennmore part). When he finished installing it, he did hit the reset button. Now tonight, while doing laundry, I touched the cold water supply line accidentally, and was surprised to see how HOT that line felt. Is this normal?? I checked the temp w/ my candy thermometer(only thing I could think of) and it is registering abt 90*. I'm concerned that something is wrong!
Thanks for any help in easing my mind!
