I know that this is generally a wood working group. But as many of us are also "handy men" we also get into things like home repair and maintenance. I am one of those guys. So here's my question and need for any help that can be given.
The 6 year old water heater has blown the element. I drain the unit replace and have hot water soon after. Week goes by and again no hot water. Drain and replace element and this time stat. Hot water for a week. Again element goes and I find myself without hot water. By the way the wife is not barking at me yet but you know it's only time.
I have replaced this element I think 6 times and by now thinking it must be more than just the element. I have this job again this weekend and am dumbfounded what to do. Is there something I'm missing?
Here's the info about the tank: 20 gallon, 120volt, 1500 watt element and single stat.
If anyone has a bright idea that I have over looked please let me know.
This is the first time since 06 that I have had to do anything with this tank. It has worked well up till now. The unit is still in great shape.
