Here is the situation. My hot water heater hs quit heating on electric mode. :smack-head: Upon insepection I am getting no power to the receptacle where it plugs in. This is a typical residential looking receptacle. My question is this. Is it possible for a breaker to go bad without tripping? That is the only thing that I can think of in the line that could cause the problem at this point. It is early so I thought I would check on here before any stores open. Thanks in advance.
