Electric Hotwater Tank/Help

Posted by Dennis on December 27th, 2000 02:12 PM

I have a hotwater tank that supposedly is only five years old. I have turned up the thermostats to 140 , due to water not getting hot enough.

How do I check the upper and Lower elements and also the thermostats to see if they are working properly?

I used to be able to take a bath and then my daughter could shower after and we had plenty of hot water to do both. I checked the water at the tap for temperture and it only reads 120 degrees? And its set for 140 degrees? Could you tell me how to check both elements and thermostats to see if they are all working properly?
Thank you
