Water htr issue

I have no hot water using electric.....switch and breaker on. I have not drained the water htr so I wouldn't think it's an element issue. There was a little green blinking light on the breaker panel that went solid green when I pushed the button. Was fine just last week. Any ideas?

Hi limit may have tripped. It's one of the black rubber buttons in the water heater compartment. Press both of them. One on the left is 110 and the one on the right is 12v.

According to page 6 in their manual, there is a D reset on the thermostat.

Don't know why but it fixed itself....all I did was fiddle with wire connections, flipped switches etc....now it works.

Sometimes just a little fiddlin' and wigglin' can work wonders.
