Have 40 gallon electric hot water tank 10 gauge wire 20 amp double pole breaker federal pacific fuse box red black ground wire shows power on 2 hrs now not even Luke warm water what could be wrong


I'm an electrician and can help. Federal Pacific equipment is tough stuff. The company went out of business decades ago - due to faulty equipment they made. Aside from that..

There may be no power out of the breaker, bad connections between the breaker and water heater, bad thermostat, bad hi temp sensor, bad heating element and more. I wrote the article linked below - that will help you find and fix any of these problems and more - assuming you have the equipment and ability to work on electric water heaters. If not - call a licensed electrician.

Why do lights flicker


An electric water heater will draw a lot of electricity. Your house may not be wired well, and when the heater kicks on, your lights will dim some. If your house is over 25 years old, it's likely normal.

How do you know if it is the element that is bad or the therm-o-


Disconnect the electric for the unit. Disconnect the two wires from the two eliments. Place a battery type test light or Ohm meter is more conclusive if you have one, Light should light when placing the two test leads to the two eliment contacts(while they are disconnect for the water heater wiring) should be dim but glowing. If no light the the eliment is open. If an Ohm meter the Wattage is written on the heater the heater. E=IR P=IE. It should work out to about 1200 -1400 ohms if 220 volt heater. If the light is bright just as if you had put the two test leads together,then you can say that the eliment is likely shorted. Either no light or a Very bright light requires the eliment to be changed.   To check the thermostats, Raise the ajustment one one at a time, until it clicks. Listen for the heater to be heating. Turn that one back down and do the other one the same way. I hope I have been clear enough. About one gallon of water should be drained for the bottom of the tank once a year along with checking the preasure/tempature safety relief valve by  operating it ,using the leaver,for  a few moments as preventive maintenance.
