How do you know which heating element is bad?

How do you know which heating element is bad?

Touch a probe on the multitester to each screw on the element. If you get no reading, or a maximum reading, the element is bad. Elements do have some resistance, so a reading of 10-16 ohms is normal, with higher ohm readings for 3,500 watt elements and lower readings for 5,500 watt elements.

Should you get continuity through a heating element?

If you still get infinite resistance or zero resistance then the heater element is probably shot. In sum, if there is “continuity” through the heating element it is working. If there is no continuity (no electrical current can flow) then the element has failed.

How do you reset Stiebel?

Remove the screw on the right side of the unit and open it. The thermal safety resets are located on the top of each copper heating vessel. If you don’t have an insulated tool, a pencil with an eraser works fine. If the button clicks when depressed, it has been reset.
