I would start by removing all power to the unit, and then use a DVM to check continuity on the heat element.

If water heater is turned "on" for electric, and no water in tank, heating element will "burn out" in a matter of minutes. Maybe that is what happened. Pull element and check it. Just remove the black plastic cap, unscrew wires, unscrew the element.
