Hi, You will need to change the burner switch as well. It shorted out when the element went bad.
Please let me know if I can assist you with part # or anything else.

It sounds like a thermocouple has gone bad. this is a very common problem with gas powered things ie; water heaters, furnaces, hot tubs. The telltale sign is when you release the pilot light button it won't stay lit. This is a safety feature and is relatively inexpensive and easy to repair.

Hi and welcome to FiXya I am Kelly.
Your pilot light burning yellow is a sign of a dirty orifice. This can be caused by insects or a spider web in the pilot air supply.
To clean the air supply / orifice area see this page:
Also the thermocouple may not be close enough to the flame. You won't know this for sure until you finish cleaning the pilot / orifice area.
This link has step by step links for all of the components / causes of a pilot not staying lit. Click each of them and it will bring up a pdf file with step by step instructions and pictures:
A bad thermocouple can also cause this. Givien you have a yellow flame I do not think this is your problem. But if it ends not staying lit after cleaning see this page on how to get to the thermocouple:
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The Reliance 606 has an enclosed thermal couple. Before you try taking that assembly apart take a wire brush to the bottom opening directly under the burner. There is a metal filter on the very bottom of the water heater. It could be that the filter has gotten filled with dust or animal hair. It took a serviceman 2 days to figure this out for me. The water heater has to have good airflow through that filter to work well.
