shut the power to it and run some water then work the stats so they make and break you'll see the one sticking might be welded together...

Considering all the facts you have given us: I would replace the "HOT water heater" with an ordinary "water heater". Don't ask me why, but it's a pet peeve of mine when they are referred to as "HOT" water heaters.

The new "water heater" is installed. There are much better ways to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Thanks to all of you for your valuable input...it is appreciated.


Merry Christmas to you & yours
