No, this is not some WWII war strategy. We are talking about your electric Hot Water Heater tank. Electric hot water troubleshooting starts out with some testers to track down your problem. To make it worse, the testers are not that easy to use. Add to that, the significant danger involved with the 240-volt power that is feeding your electric hot water tank.
Has the breaker tripped for some reason? If so, hit the reset button on the heating elements. We are talking about serious electricity here…240 volts at thirty amps. People have been killed from that kind of current! Don’t even think of looking at the situation unless the power is turned off. This may not be a quick fix, even though having no hot water is a real bummer.
