Question about Water Heaters
Hot H2O only lasts 5-10 min. Then takes 1.5 to 2 Hrs. to recover ! HELP!
Could be a number of things. The first thing to do is to verify that you are getting 240 volts at the upper thermostat, and right on the element terminals. Let me know if you do, and we'll go from there.

If you are not familiar with the element, I would get someone that is familiar with one and have them do it. It's not something I would recommend you do based on your question. There's electrical, pressurized water tank, and a whole lot of water that may cause you to have a worse bad day.

try setting the bottom 10 degrees hoter than the top could be in short cycle (thatis the bottom calls for heat on the bottom element and set too close so goes back to top and cycles off
