Question about RELIANCE ELECTRIC WATER HEATER
Most water heaters heat the water on top first. This is because the warm water will rise to the top and the hot water is drawn off the top. When the upper thermostat turns the top element off then the bottom one comes on. It makes it sound like there is a problem with the top element. Disconnect electric, and read the resistance on the element terminal to terminal. If it shows open the you have a bad element. Did you make sure the heater was completely full before turning the electric? You must run the hot faucets to remove all the air from the top of the tank before turning on the electric. Elements will burn out quickly if out of the water.
