I would say you have a bad element in the bottom.If the water is cold and heat until the top thermostat reach it tempture,then switch the bottom element and then the breaker trip.So replace the bottom element.

SOURCE: circuit breaker trips on electric hot water heater circuit

Check the voltage at the water heater. Sounds like the element is burnt out and is tripping the breaker.

If it is more then 5 years old I would check.install a new heating element.

Why is the dometic hot water heater not heating with 110 ac


This is assuming you have a 110vac unit. Could be breaker tripped in house, or high limit thermostat tripped on water heater, but most likely a burnt out element.

Water got extremely hot and then tripped a breaker. now if i reset the breaker and turn on the hot water switch on the wall, all is good. but when i turn the switch on the hot water heater itself it trips...


Sounds like you have a short in wiring for 120VAC system of water heater. Shut breaker at panel off, and remove cover on back of water heater to look for any burnt wiring at connections such as switch, or thermostat/eco assembly.

No hot water


Electric water heater can be repaired by homeowner.

Four things can cause NO hot water:
1) ECO red reset button tripped. Remove top cover on water heater, push red reset button on thermostat. Put insulation and cover back over thermostat.
2) Circuit breaker is tripped, circuit breaker bad, or wire loose in breaker box. Turn breaker on-off and listen for crackling or fizzing sound, and burned smell. Test breaker for 220Volts. Test top two screws on upper thermostat to see if water heater has electricity.
3) Bad upper thermostat. Replace upper thermostat.

4) Bad upper element. Test upper element.

I have a model 71-408 B which just stop heating


If I understand correctly, you have electric water heater.
Heater suddenly stopped heating.

Four things cause sudden loss of water heater.
1) Reset button located under the top cover is tripped > turn off power, remove cover, press reset button > if reset keeps tripping, go to the troubleshooting link shown below.
2) Electric power to heater is interrupted > check circuit breaker > test for voltage > look for loose wire on breaker
3) Upper element burned out > test and replace element
4) Upper thermostat bad > replace upper thermostat

Reset button is best suspect.

My water is not hot and discovered the panel breaker tripped. the panel breaker keeps tripping for the water heater and will not reset either.


Problem could be a shorted element. Disconnect the wires from the breaker and try to reset it, remember to flip the switch in the fully off position before moving it to the on position. If the breaker doesn't trip then the problem is in the heater itself. If you have access to an Ohmmeter, with the power turned off check the continuity of the elements across the screw terminals and from the terminals to ground. There should not be a reading to ground and a high resistance across the terminal screws
