Question about Water Heaters
I just installed a new Rheem electric 50 gallon hot water heater. I am getting power (220) to the unit. The heating elements are getting power. I have waited over 2 hours with the thermostats set at 120. No hot water. I then changed the thermostats to about 140. Now 3 hrs and no change in temp. The old water heater had a secondary ground to the frame of mobile home. I did the same.
Check the elements, if you have access to a meter to check them. If they are getting power to elements and you have no hot water.
The elements are not working correctly. I had some elements check out ok till the thermostat's turned on and the elements didn't heat.
Sounds like the elements are bad.
