the clip was rusted on the bottom thermostat but I used the plastic clip to hold the thermostat against the tank for the time being, so it was making contact.
I understand about the rust, but the time being, can you please tell me what possible causes of this extreme overheating besides the thermostat??
How bout the voltage checks on these thermostats can you help me check which points to check with a DMM please?
Gonna get a new water heater but would like to make this one last til that happens.. Thank you!!
