help please!! water heater problems.....1 cold shower too many
I am in desperate need of help!!!
I have a brand new ELECTRIC water heater that I installed last night. It is a Kenmore Power Miser 6, 240v, 3800w
I energized the water heater and 8 hours later, I still have no hot water. not even luke warm. were talking cold!
I used a multimeter to test all connections on the thermostat and heating element on the upper element and everything checks out at 240v.
I did the same for the bottom unit, and I get zero's. There is only two wires on the lower unit which is correct when I look at the wiring diagram. When I test the lower unit terminals one at a time with one probe, and the other to ground....they all check out with 120v. So it seems to me, it's getting power.
I don't know what else to check or do. Can anyone help me?
