Electric hot water boiler

Ask a Plumber

How do I know if I have to change my hot water boiler or if I just have to change a thermostat or an element. I have a multi tester but not sure how to meter out a hot water boiler.

  1. If the element is at fault, all you need to do is check for continuity. You would do this with your multimeter, but how you do this will vary based on your set up and your meter. You should start by reading the instructions for your multimeter for checking continuity. If there is no continuity, then the element is no good. If you have continuity, then it is most likely the thermostat that is faulty.
