My outside toggle switch was bad from the get-go......just another idea if the other suggestions don't get your water heater up and running on electric.

Do you know any details on this newer element??

Quick diagnosis/repair with pic

Hey guys,

Instead of starting a new thread I figured adding to this one with great info already was a better idea. I have a propane/electric water heater that currently does not work on electric. I have attached a photo of what I believe to be an obvious cause. My questions is how do I go about repairing it? Is this part of the element or is this an easy fix? See photo attached for details.

That is a great photo of a bad thermostat.

Look at the wire on the left (AC) thermostat. It is melted.

You should replace it.

http://www.rvdealership.com/rvdstore...rNumber=885555


1) Turn off water heater breaker
2) Remove black wires
3) Remove nut (don't drop it)
4) Remove thermostat
5) Install new thermostat
6) Tighten nut snug
7) Attach black wires
8) Turn on breaker

Enjoy electric hot water.
