Question about Rheem 40 GAL ELEC TALL Water Heater 6YR SC 82VH402
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?
