Hot Water Heater problems

muddy_waterSeptember 22, 2011

Well the other day the water was scalding hot on my electric heater.So I replaced the upper and lower stats thinking that was the problem. But this morning it was still scalding hot So I replaced the upper and lower heating elements ( the lower one was bad) But now the water is still very hot I have it set on 130 upper and 140 lower if that helps,,,Anybody have any other Ideas? I'm leaveing tomorrow afternoon for Deer camp and I need to have this fixed before someone takes their skin off...

Set both at the same temperature. That may not help the perception of too hot. 140 is really very hot.

For residential application Code max is 120 and no appliance may require a higher temp unless it has its own heater.

DW have a heater.
