Question about Reliance & 50gal Electric Water Heater
Water heater has to be full of water before power is turned on or elements will burn out.
If upper element is burned out, then no hot water.
Lower element burned out, not much hot water.
If tank has 2 elements, it is 240V. Water heater circuit may not be delivering 240V. Test for 240V at connections.
