I would say then the heating element has a resistive short to ground. The 1.98m Ohm reading is high, but not high enough -- should be infinite. I would say replace heating element... And, when you install new one, make sure there is no water leaking thru heating element cavity and ensure area around cavity is clean & "in order".
How old is water heater?

Testimonial: "He was right on the mark, after removing the element it was apparent that it was bad, split down the middle of the element twords the middle section. "
Check power going into thermostat and coming out. Power comes through top thermostat to rest of electrical component's. Thermostat may be tripped out if so press red reset button. If it don't reset the thermostat may be bad.

If you have 220 volts at the poles on the upper heating element and it doesn't heat up, it has to be the element or a loose connection where the power hooks up to it. If after replacing the element and the power was applied to the element before the tank filled back up with water, the element probably burned out again. The tank must be full before turning power on to the tank.
