Testing Hot Water Heater Elements and Thermostats
Posted by Diane Eidson on May 22, 2001 at 08:05:09:
From reading your posts, I have determined that one or all of my hot water elements or thermostats are bad. I had very hot water and the reset switch had kicked. All seemed fine last night. This morning, same senario with hot water, but reset was fine. My question is: How do I test the elements/thermostats to see which one or all to replace? Is it trial and error, start with a certain one, or is there some way to use a tester? If so, how do I do that? Thanks.
