Electric water heater

My rocker switch went bad this summer, tested it with a volt meter. Found out it was faulty and went to a local hardware store and replaced it for a few bucks.

Sorry I missed this one !!!

Good chance the thermostat or overload on AC side supply are open, they are in series Located under rubber flex cover. Use a meter to check continuity between points, happened to me

I really don't use the electric wh because I have a 30 amp. Electric wh takes a lot of power. I usually turn the gas wh 10 minutes before take a shower and that's enough.

Question. Have you ever gotten hot water? Reason I ask is the water bypass could be wrong by the heater. I had the valves turned wrong at the beginning of the season. Once I got the right I got hot water.

The OP said it works fine on propane.

I'm wondering if somewhere along the way it was turned on without water (on electric) and fried the element?

Mike... you are going to have to do some electrical testing with a meter.
If you are uncomfortable with that, you'll need to take it in for repairs or call a mobile tech.

If you have a meter and know how to use it, let us know and we can walk you through some basic tests.
