Time is up

In reply to Hot water heater problem by Jack Higbee on November 17th, 1998 04:01 PM [Go to top of thread]

The heating element is not the problem. Chances
are the thermostat is not kicking off at the preset
temperature. Also the relief valve is rated to discharge
the excess heat at its rated temperature. Both areas
need your attention.
At nine years of age, this water heater is
beginning to run out of its limited life. Serious
thought should be given to the cost of parts versus
the cost of a new water heater. GOOD LUCK!!!
