Question about Eemax SP3012 3.0kW 120V

Open Question

Eemax model SP-3012 not heating water. I can hear a reley "click" but water is not getting hot at all. I have roughly 50 (fifty) units that have these water heaters and they are about 2 (two) years old. 7 (Seven) of these units do not get hot and I believe it is the element.I need to purchase these elements (if that what it is) and I don't know where to get them locally. My zip code is 32137,Can you tell me if in fact it is the element and where to purchase them. Eventually I will need more.

If it trips the breaker you MUST have an Earth fault and or a short circuit to Neutral/Earth. You must get a Registered Electrician to look at it.

I have a Eemax so 35 instant water heater and it makes a buzzing noise when you turn the hot water on

Heavy current required for instant hot water may be switched via a relay or contacter which may be faling. One way to diagnose may be with cover off and careful listening and visual inspection, but a risky process for inexperienced DIY'er's ??. Pro time?

Eemax280t2t no hot water

see if the circuit breaker switch has tripped either partially or fully and reset it. Check for bad or loose wiring on the heater and breakers. The next thing is more likely the heating element is no good and needs repaired or the heater needs replaced.
