Electric heaters are a bit different from gas heaters. It sounds like your heating element is out in the heater and no matter if the heater is getting electricity or not it will not heat the water. In a lot of cases, this will cause the heater to burn up more electricity trying to heat and maintain the water temperature. You will need to call a company to come to your home to check the heater and see if it can be repaired or not. You may need to change out this heater.

You need to check your troubleshooting guide. If you can't find it - find the make and model of your water heater and research online.

I have had this problem but with gas. I had to Light the Water Heater Pilot Light. Initially I called for a free check and they told me I needed a new one at thousands of dollars. I had my dad come over and he helped me light the pilot light and has been working since (2 years+ since the issue!)

There are a few things I don't mess with and one is water heaters. Best to have a plumber or waterheater place check it out.

Talk to your friends to find an honest person. Our guy is honest and if you book online, they give you 15% of the bill.
