Geno, Thanks for the reply. Ironically I found the website this afternoon that you sent me links to later. Thanks for your kindness. If I get someone else the problem is continuity test on both...


Hi Tom,

I'm not Geno-- But maybe I can pick up where he left off?

First you say you did a continuity test on the heater elements-- What was the Ohms on each?

Now to the Voltage measurements:
You say you have voltage to the upper-- but not the lower--
That is normal on a cold tank-- That way you can get HOT water faster, that waiting for the whole tank to heat (as from the bottom element-- Make sense?

Until we know if the elements are OK-- the voltage checks are a bit pre-mature.

So-- With power shut OFF, and the wires lifted from the heating elements,
What are the ohms across the heater elements themselves?
(It should be low-- in the 3 or 4 ohms?-- but NOT OPEN! (which is infinity..)

What do you get?

Bought reliance 602 50 gallon electric hot water heater 4 years ago and it stoped heating bought new upper and lower elements and new upper and lower thermostat and still no hot water power goes to all...


did you turn the breaker on ? before filling the tank ?the water tank must be completly full before turning on. the new elements will blow if not submerged in water ..if you have 240 volts at the element and its not heating one is out .only one element can be on at a time so you really need an amp prob to test element .try an ohm meter an check resistance ,sounds like one element is out .hope this helps good luck /P/Swhen filling tank. open a hot water valve, on tub or faucet to remove air while filling the tank. you will hear the air coming out of faucet. when water comes out its filled..

Water heater


With amp meter check amps on element wire . If no amps check Voltage and terminals on element. Should be 240 volts. Only one elements heats at a time. Top element heats up first then lower element heats up. Amps should be about 18 amps if working properly. One other problem could be a leak in hot water pipe or dip tube may be off. Dip tube carries cold water to bottom of heater so incoming and heated water are not mixed at top of tank

We have a rheem electric hot water system which is suddenly not producing hot water. We have checked the electricity supply, the valve and both these were OK. We are at a loss to explain why this is...


Electric water heater are designed with two elements for heating the water. The upper element is what is called the quick recovery element which is control by a thermostat. The thermostat has a reset button that will open in an over temperature situation. If the reset is NOT tripped it is possible that the upper element or thermostat has failed. Until the upper element is satisfied ( up to set temperature) the lower element does not get any power through the circuit.

Lower element only gets lukewarm bosch single oven model HBL536 a uc


The problem I had was with a Bosch model 536 wall-mount oven, not an airconditioner. Decided it was the lower element that was at fault. Although it showed continuity (dual element 48 ohms and 114 ohms) readings should be approx 24 ohms per element.


Thanks
