Question about RELIANCE ELECTRIC WATER HEATER
Posted by Anonymous on
I suggest taking 30 minutes and testing water heater parts.
Right away we know 2 things:
-Electricity to heater is good.
-Upper element is receiving power because you have some hot water. If upper element was burned out, you would have no hot water.
That leaves 5 suspects:
Loose or shorted wire.
Upper element shorted to ground near center of element.
Lower element shorted or damaged in some manner.
Buy $10 milti-meter from Home Center or hardware
When test calls for testing voltage, rotate multimeter dial to 240-250-277 VAC.
When test calls for testing elements or continuity, rotate multimeter dial to Ohms.
Take 30 minutes and go down page.
Test will identify problem(s) and show how to fix it yourself.
