Water Heater Trip Breaker/Reset
I have a water heater (installed in 1995) in the house I bought 2 years ago. About 9 months ago, it stopped working. I looked and it tripped the circuit breaker for the water heater. I turned the breaker back on and reset the water heater (open panel + push reset button). It worked fine for 6 months. About 3 months ago it stopped working, but this time did not trip the breaker. I reset it, and it has been working fine since.
I suppose it is nearing the end of its' life, but wanted to see if anyone has had a similar experience or has any input as to what could cause it to stop working twice (trip breaker once), but work again after being reset.
Shut the breaker off and check for loose conections on the heater and the breaker.
