Sounds like your tea kettle may have exceeded it's useful life. Don't know about Cuisinart, but generally these kinds of parts are not replaceable. I am afraid you may be looking at a new appliance. Sorry.

Hot surface indicator light stay on?


One of your surface elements is bad (the hot-element switch that is part of the element is stuck on). If each element has its own hot-light, then you know which element is bad; but if you have just 1 hot-surface indicator, your problem is figuring out which element is bad. That takes an electronic technician with patience and an ohmmeter.

Hot water recover time


No.
Fold-back elements are low-watt-density, so element does not burn out as easily since heating is spread across more surface area. But recovery remains 16 gallon per hour.
20 amp breaker and 12 gauge wire: max 3800 watts
30 amp breaker and 10 gauge wire: max 5800 watt.
4500 watt element heats 20 gallons per hour.

Instead of changing elements: Set thermostats higher so more cold is added to hot water, and then you have more hot water available inside tank.

How to replace water heater element will water cme out when you remove element does tank have to be drained


Safest method:
Shut off electricity to heater.
Shut the water valve.
Drain heater to below the level of the element, open hot water valve in house to vent heater to speed draining.
If the element is on top, you don't have to empty the heater.
Remove old element, install new element.
Leave hot water valve open somewhere in the house.
Turn water on.
Once air is removed at hot water valve, turn electric on.
Shut water valve.

I have hot water for a minute then it goes to warm. I took off the 2 wires on each element and I have 15 ohms on the top and 5.5 on the bottom. Is my bottom element bad?


Sounds like bottom element may be bad but usually reads open circuit if bad. Also tan k would run about 8 gallons hot water then go cold. lots of warm water usually means bad dip tube.
Check if tank is hot at bottom element when not used for a while. If bottom element is still cold then bad element.
If bottom element is hot - (all water in tank is hot then you have a bad "dip tube" This is allowing incoming cold water to mix with outgoing hot water. The dip tube is usually A part of the cold water nipple or B located under the cold water inlet nipple.

Hot water heatermag-glass_10x10.gif elements will need to be replaced when there is no hot water, apparently less hot water or the hot water is taking longer to recover after showers, laundry, dishwashing or other demands on hot water. It is not difficult to replace a hot water heater element. Consult the documentation so you can purchase the right element for your hot water heater. If you do not have the documentation, write down the make and model information and take that information with you to a supply store. The store clerk will help you find the right element for your hot water heater.
  1. Step 1 Turn off all power supply to the hot water heater. Turn off the cold water supply to the water heater. Attach a garden hose to the bottom spigot of the hot water heater and open the valve to drain the unit.
  2. Step 2 Hot water heatersmag-glass_10x10.gif typically have an upper and lower element. Open both control panels with a screwdriver. There will be insulation behind each panel. Fold the insulation out of the way; the elements and thermostats will be visible.
    Disconnect the wires from the element and remove the element. If the element is installed with a mounting plate, remove the bolts with a socket wrench. If the element is not installed with a mounting plate, remove with an element wrench.
  3. Step 3 Clean the gaskets and the gasket area on the hot water heater tank. Install the new elements by inserting them into the hole. Be sure the gaskets are tightly in place. If the element is installed with a mounting plate, tighten opposite diagonal bolts so the element stays straight in the tank. If the element is installed with an element wrench, use the element wrench to install the new elements.
  4. Step 4 Reconnect the wires for each element. Close the drain valve. Open the cold water supply. Do not turn the power supply back on yet. The tank must be filled completely before turning the power supply back on to the hot water heater. Open a hot water valve; the hot water faucet on a tub is a good option. When all trapped air has escaped and the water is flowing freely from the spigot without air bubbles, the power supply can be turned back on to the hot water heater. After filling, inspect the area around the elements for any signs of leaking. If everything looks good, reposition the insulation and replace the control panel access covers

Hot water heater


Absolutely no hot water indicates the top element or thermostat on the heater. Check to make sure that you have 240 volts on the top two terminals of the top thermostat. If you do then check the top element for voltage. It should also read 240 volts between the two screws. If you have 240 volts there shut off the power, drain the heater to a point below the top element and change the top element. When the element is installed turn your WATER back on and let the air bleed out of several hot faucets in the house. When the faucets stop spitting air you can turn them off. Check for leaks around the element. If you have no leaks turn the power back on the the heater and replace the covers.

That should get you 'back in hot water' in two hours.

Will not keep coffee hot.


The problem is the keep warm element. The reason, your pot perc's and it gets hot near the thermo, the thermo turns off the main element. The keep warm element is not on so after a small amount of time the water cools and the thermo turns the main element back on again, thus making the water hot. The K W element is supposed to be on all the time the pot is plugged in, it is instrumental in perking the first brew making it really hot, the thermo turns off the main element and the K W element keeps the water hot. The K M element is very a easy fix, it is the small looking white rope that runs around the bottom of the pot. You have 1-nut and 1- screw to remove. When removing the screw from the main element you must hold the (leg) that the K M element is screwed to so it does not bend and brake off. Take your time and be firm with the pressure you apply to the screw, while holding it with a pliers. Part is 8.00 plus 2.00 S/H. bobbyone
