Electric immersion heater keeps cutting out

I have an electric immersion heater (now 3 years old) in the bathroom. Recently it has kept cutting out (by tripping the fuse) after quite short intervals - so the fuse may need to be reset several times before the water is hot enough to have a shower. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Sounds to me like you have a bad thermostat. You should be able to give a model number to any local plumbing supply place and get one for replacement. make sure power is of the unit before replaceing.

My hot water heater is 6 yrs old should i change the elements or replace the water heater

Replace elements and thermostats
Check the anode rod

If anode is replaced, then tank will not rust.
This maintenance will keep electric water heater is good operating order indefinitely.
You never need to replace electric water heater if water pressure is kept below 80 psi, and anode is good and keeps tank from rusting.

Ge electric water heater. 3 years old. keep tripping reset. both elements show 13 ohms, with no gronding out condition. help!

Have you replaced the thermostat they will short out and keep tripping to they go bad. Check the ends of the elements also for any bad places. Ran along this a few times and it ends up being a bad thermostat causing it to trip. You will reset it and it may last a day or more and keep resetting it and eventually it will short out or burnt out. So please check it out and this helps you.

I purchased a perko urn model #107Sss and the water has a terrible metalic taste. What can i do

I bought the same horrible, cheap, dishonest unit. They disingenuously say to rinse and boil once. I've boiled the water at least twelve or thirteen times. They also brag it doesn't need immersion (not because such units don't require immersion since that will damage the unit and they don't need immersion) but because of their superior spirituality. Let them answer for dishonesty in 120 years.
