Over heats and shuts off


The top thermostat controls your water heater meaning if it is not working you wont have any hot water. If the top t-stat needs to be reset by pushing button in then check the element with POWER OFF and remove wires from element. check ohms should be around 12 to 19 ohms. If ok then reconnect wires and check amps. turn on power and use clamp on meter for amps. 15 to 20 amps should be ok. if not drain heater and pull out element. while you are at it drain all the water and pull lower element. if replaced and you have some hot water then quickly cool or cold then you have a broken dip tube located under the cold side of the supply line. they are cheap and easy to replace. I hope this helps.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

If there is no hot water, first push the reset button on the high-temperature cutoff; test the thermostat and replace if faulty (see below). Test the heating elements and replace if faulty (see below).
If there is not enough hot water, adjust the thermostat settings. As needed, reset, test and replace thermostats and heating elements if faulty.
If the water is too hot, adjust the thermostat settings and reset. Test and replace the thermostat or high-limit cutoff (see below).
An electric water heater is a 240-volt appliance that can deliver a fatal shock. Always turn off power to the heater at the electrical panel 585dc480-4881-44a8-afda-7267c0f3de26.jpgbefore beginning work, and verify that power has been shut off. Make sure others in the house know not to restore electricity prematurely. If you have any doubt as to whether electricity has been turned off, seek professional assistance.

As long as the water heater is not leaking or not big enough that would be the only reason to replace heater. If you are running out of hot water or it's cold, check the power source first to make sure you have power to heater. Then check the reset button on the top thermostat and make sure it's not tripped if it is it wil not heat. If so press red button aloow it a little time check for hot water.
Next step woul dbe to turn power off and drain water to replace both elements out. Once changed out turn water back on and open a faucet to remove air out of the wtare lines. Once you get water flowing out of water lines now you are ready to turn power back on. allow about 30 to 40 monutes and you should have hot water.

No the top thermostat is the first place I would start to replace. They run about 14.00 more than likely it isn't controling right. Turn power supply to water heater off and replace thermostat.

If you was getting scalding hot and then turning cold without tripping the thermostat it would be the top element working and the bottom one bad.
Bottom element good it will give you luke warm water for a while then gradually turn cold because it's heating the bottom of the tank.

Hope this will help you out.

Hot water wont get hot


1-First check for power to water heater and remove acces panels on heater to check power at thermostats. Thermostats have a reset button on them that trip and can be pressed to reset.

2- If none of the above have changed any thing and you have power you may have elements gone bad.

If an element is gone at top you will get scalding hot water then go to cold.

If an element on the bottom is gone you will get luke warm water then will get cold.
