Question about Water Heaters
Used manual and reset upper thermostat 1 month ago, it solve problem. had to do it again this morning. do i replace element or thermostat or both. power miser 9 electric 4 years old
Most electric water heaters have two elements . One at the bottom and one at the top. Ajust the tempature the same on both. If you find yourself tweeting the thermostats , try flushing water through the tank and out the drain valve .on the bottom of the tank. This should be done annually .Since they usually have two eliments, controlled by two thermostats. One may isolate(disconnect the electric leads, with the power turned off, and use an OHM meter to test then. They should both have the same reading. They are replacable.
