The problem started when the hot water supply remained cold suggesting one of two solutions, either the thermostat or element packed up. I had the existing thermostat tested and because it was faulty replaced same. The water heated up but after a considerable wait. This was okay for two days until after the opening of the hot water tap the water would exit via the safety valve collect in the drip tray and exit, I then replaced the safety valve as well and lo and behold the same thing happened. Is there something I missed out on by way of the installation or possible setting of the items ?
