Ok... dual element 55 gallon tank, red wire to lower element connected to one screw on element... I disconnected the lower thermostat so the only hot wire is the red coming from upper thermostat L4. The 120 is somehow getting to the other terminal on the lower element... It's like there is a short somewhere causing 120 to get to the other terminal. This is a new element. It did the same thing on the old element. I tested on the old element, out of tank, and 120 does not get to other terminal when element is out of tank... Ohms test fine on both elements. What is going on??
Thank you for your help...
