Electric water heater is fully repairable unless it is rusted out.
All 2-element tanks are 240Volts.
If you have NO hot water, then suspects are 240Volt circuit supplying only 120V, reset button is tripped out on upper thermostat, bad upper thermostat, bad upper element.
If elements were not completely covered with water when power was turned on, then elements will instantly burn out.
When filling water heater tanks, open bathtub spout. Wait for water to come out full stream. Then open TP valve on water heater for a moment to remove last of air. Then turn on electricity.
