Question about RELIANCE ELECTRIC WATER HEATER
I have a GIANT 152ETE 40 gallons. I have been reseting it for a few days now as the water is getting very hot and it shuts down. I have replaced the top thermostat and the control advice at the bottom but it is still giving very very hot water and keep shutting down when the water has reached the high temp limit I guess.
I replaced the thermostat as the water was very hot in the tank, is it a problem? Should I have waited the water to cool down before?
What would be the next step?
Could it be one of the element?
Any help would be appreciated.
I have the smae problem but my element on top works fine it is the element on the bottem that does not go on so what is it that i have to change the element or the thermostat. on the bottom or the one on top. I have voltage on the top but none on the bottom element and are they suppose to go on the same time.

I do have the same problem with mywater tank. I have the same model. Could you tell me how can I test if the element is defective?
What kind of tool should i get?

Have you tried seting the temp lower and going by the water temp itself? and compare it to the thermostat? The limit swith is to prevent a runaway, The thermostat is what is supposed to control the on/of temps. The element can only work one way failure would be no heat. So it is a controller or the controller that is not signalling properly.
