Here is how to go about it. First disconnect power by taking fuses out or shut off switch.
Then take off cover on heater over the wire connections, and move any insulation from in front of the element connections, so you can test for power at the heater.
Turn power on. Use a tester to check.
If you don't have a tester, you can make one out of a light bulb and a 2 wire socket. 2 bulbs and 2 sockets wired in series is even better. You might have to take the wires off to test for power. We do here because we have 110-220 power. Now if you have power at the elenment, then you have a burned out element. You should check out the thermostat to be sure power is passing though. It is no good to change the heater, if there is no power is at the element.
This morning our well went out, no water. All I could think of was the well man and his $50,000 truck. A new well moter is about $750. I checked and checked, and found a wirenut connecting the power to the lines outside was correded. I cut the wires, skin them, twised and put a new wire nut on. Pumped started and I went to a communion service and came home. My son said something is wrong with the water, no pressure. I then changed the all house filter, and all is running.
I hope I helped you. I am a retired union construction electrican.
Good luck, be careful and take you time. cya
