A very nice video tutorial on how you can easily identify the cause of an electric water heater failure. AFTER you establish that there is power being supplied to the water heater, ALL remaining tests are done with the POWER OFF to the water heater.

You will need a phillips & slot screwdriver, as well as a digital or analog multimeter.

*** If you have any "simple" questions, please post them in the comments section. I will try my best to reply back as soon as possible. I have lots of people that request "Special Assistance", or send me private YT messages seeking "Special Assistance" in response to one or more of my over 380 videos, even though I would love to assist everyone possible, and usually I do (which many other YT channels do not, that I know for an absolute fact), I am finding it very difficult to keep up with all the requests, due to a lack of time(working & personal life). Answering simple questions, I will always continue to do, but I have adopted a new policy in which I ask any viewer who seeks, "An Advanced Level Of Help" to post (1) link in the video comment section showing that they shared my Youtube Channel main page with others(posting a link on another website, Twitter, Facebook, etc). By doing so, I will then be glad to assist at a "higher" level. I have no problem helping, but viewers looking for help, should also help me in return by supporting my channel. To take the time to assist someone at a, "higher level" who does not return the favor by sharing my channel, simply does not make sense. Help those who take the time to help you and save you money.***
