I have just replaced both elements and did a quick flush. The top element had a lot of scale build-up and there was a lot of trash in the tank during flush. I filled the tank and turned the power back on and the control unit and status light indicated normal operation. I had to get to work, so I turned off the power and water until I can get home and test it. Hope this fixes it. Will have to continue flushing later as there was still sediment in the drained water.

Thanks for the suggestions!
