Circuit Breaker


Question– “I installed a new water heater element Lower one and properly filled my tank before turning on the circuit breaker..but when we turn it on, it starts to heat the water and after two minutes the circuit breaker trips..any suggestions why?”

Answer Unfortunately, we don’t know why your circuit breaker tripped.  It could be a bad circuit breaker or any number of things.  In our opinion, it is not cost effective to replace the elements in an electric water heater so our recommendation is to replace the entire water heater.
