    How is everyone?

    I really need help. I just drained all the water out of my electric water heater and damaged the drain plug. I replace the plug after unplugging the power and then draining the water. I then opened the water and plugged in the power within 2 minutes. Now the water will not get hot. Did i damage the heater coil?

    Hello: You probably burned out the upper element. Plumbers do this all the time if they get in a hurry. The tank MUST be full of water with water running steadily from a hot tap before the power is turned back on…. or the element fries 😯

    Yours, Larry
