Question about Water Heaters
The water heater stopped working. I do not know if the thermostat has gone bad (I think there are two, one for the upper element, and one for the lower), or if the elements are bad. Is there a way to tell? Should I simply replace both the thermostats and the elements?
Most likely it is not your thermostats. First check your circuit breakers in your electrical box. It should be a double 30 amp breaker. PLEASE USE CAUTION WHEN WORKING A ELECTRICITY! Next above your upper thermostat you will see a red reset button, push it and it should reset. It will take a little time for your water heater to heat again. If you keep having this problem it may be your elements!
