Surburban Water Heater SW10DE
The problem is: The heater will start on gas. The heater will start on Elect.
It will heat the water about 1 degree and no more. I have replaced the element. I have a full tank. I suspect the temp limit switchs are bad. The reset does nothing. If I remove the wires from the switch and link them together, thus bypassing the switch, and restart the heater, will I do any harm if I use caution and turn off before the water gets to hot?
