    Ok, just found I have no hot water.. had a bit of a test session on the Immersion tank and the bottom ele,ment is almost open circuit the top element is 18.5 ohms.
    The bottom element is used for off peak heating an is only just getting the tank up to 30-40 degrees on the stat.
    My thinking is that the bottom element is shot, can anyone confirm my diagnosis.
    Cheers
    Mark

    Apart from obvious (fuses/breakers etc) just replace both - funnily enough mine went last Friday, got sorted Sat morning. As I'm sure most would agree, they're a pain to do, but relatively cheap.

    Have you replaced before? If so, you know what to do... Sorry, not sure of your particular knowledge on such things :D
