Question about Water Heaters
Hi Guys, I have a Purex Islander Electric pool heater. I have recently opened the pool up for the Summer and the heater keeps tripping out. I have checked inside and there are no loose wires. I turn the heater on and the botton two orange lights come on. A few minutes later the "heat" light comes on and the heater trips out! I have tried disconnecting the two wires from the top of the coil, but it still trips out.. I turned down the heat dial to the lowest setting and the two lights were on, then as I turned it up, the "heat" light comes on and off goes the electric.

SOURCE: reliant 40 gallon tall electric water heater replaced both thermostats upper and lower elements flushed tank hot water very hot temp turned down lowest possible keeps tripping reset button what else c
Problem has to be bad element or bad thermostat.
Test elements for short to ground through metal tank wall:
Make sure factory-installed insulation and cover are re-installed over new thermostats so they do not misread tank temperature.
If problem does not show with elements, then replace thermostats again.
