Question and Answers

Q:

need to know where hot water valve shut off is

Q:

What is the correct setting for the thermostats on this water heater?

A:

Per the previous answer: The normal settings are 120 - 130 degrees. It mainly depends, on how hot you like the water. The description listed, of how the thermostats and elements are working is normal. The elements never come on at the same time. The thermostats are designed, so they work the elements independently. So when the upper thermostat brings on the top element the bottom element will be off. When the top thermostat is satisfied, it transfers power to the lower thermostat, so it can bring on the lower element. If you need more assistance, you can resubmit your question with more details.
