Question about Element Chromalox SG1353-430326 Electric Replacement Water Heater
When i run my hot water it doesnt get hot at all.
Absolutely no hot water indicates the top element or thermostat on the heater. Check to make sure that you have 240 volts on the top two terminals of the top thermostat. If you do then check the top element for voltage. It should also read 240 volts between the two screws. If you have 240 volts there shut off the power, drain the heater to a point below the top element and change the top element. When the element is installed turn your WATER back on and let the air bleed out of several hot faucets in the house. When the faucets stop spitting air you can turn them off. Check for leaks around the element. If you have no leaks turn the power back on the the heater and replace the covers.
That should get you 'back in hot water' in two hours.

The cold water line should have a shut off valve on it. If it does, turn it off. If it doesn't, you may have to turn off the water at your regulator or at the street.
If your water heater is gas fired, turn off the gas valve at the water heater locaton. If it is electric, turn off the breaker controlling the water heater. before draining. have a nice day !!
