Question about Rheem 40 GAL ELEC TALL Water Heater 6YR SC 82VH402
My water heather overheats the water. I know is a common problem but I tried all the normal troubleshooting and didn't work. I even got a new water heather today and it does the same...even on low temperature. After I hooked it up, in 20 minutes you couldn't hold your hand under the water. It happened the same with the old WH and after it worked like that for half a day the thermostat cracked. I think is something external...I have a separate electric line for that heather, on a 30amp brake. The same line that worked fine for a year. However, the line is not one straight wire, there is a junction. Does anyone know what could cause the malfunction of the thermostat? When I turn the electric break on I got all readings okay...240 between 1 and 3, 2 and 4, and at one of the element (this is a brand new 40GA water heather that I just bought this morning). If I take the wires from the WH and hook my dryer it works just fine. Any advice would be helpful ...On my old WH it burned 2 thermostats, neither of times the electric break turned off.
Its 3 phase not 4 Your wired wrong one of those should be a nuetral or ground
