Water *is* getting too hot! I'm glad the shutoff works as this is a
My log says the same thing happened in 2002 and I changed both
thermostats. Looks like the answer again.
Thre is one other thing I know of that will make the water get too hot and
that is if the elements get blown apart. The electricity will get in the
elements and heat up. As only one side of the line is usually broken by the
thermostat, the other side puts 120 volts into the water.
might be a tank full of crud, if the tank isnt ancient i would replace
both thermostats and elements,
if the tank is really old just save yourself the hassle and replace
new tanks have much better insulation
