My State water heater is overheating
My water suddenly got WAY too hot. I replaced both upper and lower thermostats on my State water heater, only to find that when I turned the breaker back on it was buzzing.
I thought it might be a faulty breaker, so I replaced the breaker with a new 30 amp double pole breaker switch and everything seemed back to normal. I went to work and when I came home the water was scalding again.
I checked the relief valve and that was fine as well. I've talked to 2 plumbers and an electrician and they've all diagnosed the problem as being the thermostats, but both the upper and lower thermostats are brand new. Any suggestions?
