Hello: Thanks for posting 😉 It IS a strange problem. I can only suspect that high temperature helped the gel to solidify. Noting that the anode was largely intact, it could have created a lot more problem.

I’ve worked on thousands of heaters, but not met this exact problem. Thanks for sharing, but no more aluminum anodes for you! 😎

Yours, Larry
