How to Test Hot Water Heater Heating Element
The first thing you need to know when it comes to testing your heater is that you should not use any electrical device in the process. The reason is that using electricity can cause serious damage to your heater and even short out the element. Next, remove all of the accessories from the heating element except for the part required for the test. If possible, turn off the power to the element. You need to be able to test both sides of the element.
