    Do you actually use both elements or do you just use the bottom one?

    Yes, Bottom one is used as the primary heating source. Top one is used to heat water if the hot water runs out.

    Ok, you really could do with checking the current draw on the elements. Do you know how to measure amps and do you have any equipment to do so?

    The only testing equipment I have is a multimeter

    Don't mean to butt in as I didn't read every previous post, but why not just replace the element again?

    That is what I am leaning towards now
