I have 808 Reliance model, and i just replace both elements because one of them was burned (bottum one). i reconnect the power on and it didn't kick in still nothing. If i must replace both thermostat where can i get them from?
Most towns have a plumbing supply. The idiots at the big box places like lowes or home depot dont have them.
Try calling a plumber and ask them where you can buy parts.
One big plumbing supply that sells to the public is called fergusons they are nation wide.

Check out the upper element and on the side of it should be the same number for the bottom element.
If not write information down and model number along with name and go to a plumbing supply house or Lowes,Home Depoet for a new element.

Hi, Check out this tip..
No, the top thermostat will always heat first and then it should dwitch the power to the bottom one after the top of the tank heats...this is to get you hot water faster...
The top thermostat is bad and is not shutting off or switching....
Replace the top thermostat/reset combination and you''l be good!!

Lower element will always test 120V to ground since thermostats turn off one hot wire.
Listed below are suspects in order of ease.
1) Check that hot water is not running out of TP valve and down into a drain.
This will cause water heater to run all the time but not be able to keep up.
2) Test elements before replacing anything:
3) Test electricity to water heater:
4) Replace both thermostats.
5) Final thing would be full troubleshoot:
