The tester that you need to determine exactly where the problem is will cost almost as much as a plumber would. And having the equipment is a small part of the solution if you do not know how to make the tests and what kind of results you should be looking for.

: : : HELP!!! My hot water heater isn't heating. Yesterday the water got super hot and today it's not heating at all. I have tried pressing the re-set button to no avail. Could it be the element? I need help trouble shooting.
: : : Thanks.

: : There are two elements and two thermostats.
: : If there is no hot water, I would gues it to be either the top element or thermostat.
: : If you had luke warm water, or very little, I would be looking at the lower ones.
: : They make testers to see if the element has continuity. Gee, did I spell that right?

: So I could go to Home Depot or my local hardware store and get a tester? How much are they? Then the next question is how in the heck do I do all of this w/out spending a fortune?
