If you did not read the previous page please go back by clicking here. You must read the previous page and all the warnings first.1- The circuit breaker is tripped.
You may think, it is as simple as just turning the breaker back on, or replacing a fuse, but you have to ask, why did the breaker trip? Sometimes old fuses just burn out, this is normal, and no big deal, (but please click here before you replace the fuse) but breakers don't trip for no reason. If it turns out it did not trip because of a problem with the water heater, CALL A LICENSED ELECTRICIAN. A leak inside the cover of the water heater could cause a short and trip the breaker. if your breaker is tripped, do not turn it back on before a full inspection of the water heater is done. Remember water and electricity don't mix.
