Electric water heater problem
My electric water heater started to make a noticeably louder hissing noise periodically. It used to be a low level hissing noise. I am assuming this hissing is when the thermostat is turning on the heating elements to heat the water. About 6 months ago I removed the heater and reinstalled it in the same spot when I was renovating the area for a laundry room. I mistakenly connected power to the heater before it was filled with water and the upper heating element burnt. I replaced it and everything was seemingly ok till now. It is a GE and has a manufacture date of 2/2006. Is there a problem?
