Question about Rheem 40 GAL ELEC TALL Water Heater 6YR SC 82VH402
Sounds like water heater is getting 120V but not 240V
You say there is no hot water inside the tank?
You have two elements, so tank is 240V.
Both elements test for continuity.
These three symptoms together imply that water is getting 120Volts instead of 240Volts.
Water heater appears to have electricity, but is receiving power from only one leg of the 240Volt circuit.
