Trying to Get my Water Heater to Work Again

I am trying to get my water heater to work again. I have noticed that it does not heat at all with new elements and thermostats.


Problem with a Water Heater
Electrical Question: I have noticed that it does not heat at all with new elements and thermostats.

I am trying to get my water heater to work again. I have noticed that it does not heat at all with new elements and thermostats. I think it may be a power issue. If I disconnect power from the water heater it also turns off the power to the bedroom. Even with the breaker turned back on. I don’t know why and it doesn’t seem right. Let me know if it is supposed to do that or if something is wired wrong

This electrical wiring question came from Zach, a Handyman in Plover, Wisconsin.

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical wiring question Zach.
