Got up to our seasonal site yesterday and dewinterized it. Got all the air out of the water lines and turned on water heater to electric. A couple of hours later i use it and no hot water!
Checked the breaker it was fine.
Checked for power to element no power at heating element.
Turn on switch for gas and it still doesnt come on.
Shut off all switches and breakers and start unplugging connections outside at heater and replugging.
Reset breaker and turn both gas and electric switches on still not working. When i wiggled the wires and a fuse looking wire it all came on.
what is eco in the picture is it something that is replaceable? One wire looks like it has like a fusible link or something.
It worked fine for showers last night but this morning when i turned on the gas switch it didnt kick off till i wiggled those 3 wires again.
