Can You See Dip Tube From Upper Element Port ?
Have elec HWH that runs good and hot for about 3 min then gets warmer and stays that way, even for several minutes.
The 2 elements check ok 12.9 ohms, no short to ground. Both TH diagnose test ok. "May" have an upper TH that sticks - diag wil not confirm that.
This WH is about 7 yrs old and in very good shape.
My thinking is that a broken dip tube would cause the water to get cold pretty fast ?
To confirm dip tube problem or not, can it readily be seen from the upper element port with a mini mag lite ?
Thanks for your input.
best to pull it out to inspect the whole diptube.
I'm confused what the problem is exactly.
