Hydro Hot Electric Element

The water doesn't get hot any more with the electric on only. Has anyone had to change the electric element in their units?

Didn't have to change the element but before you go to far, check for a bad high temp limit that is screwed onto the side of the tank. They have a tendency to go bad.They are screwed onto the tank not into it so if that's the problem you don't have to drain it. You can buy parts direct from Hydro now Aqua hot. Every thing 120volts is inside the electrical cover. Everything else 12 voltdc.

As I recall, for the electric element there is a reset button to push under the cover, near the back of the Aqua Hot. Sort of hard to get to. Mine needed that once a couple years ago.

Electric element was ok. I had to replace the relay located in the junction box where 110v comes in
