I have just finished the build of my diy tank out of a deep freeze. I have 2 4500 w hot water heating elements wired with 10/20, each are connected to a separate 30 amp breaker and both are connected to a "lower" thermostat. I am getting power but the elements will not heat. They are brand new out of the box. Could this be a grounding issue? I have it grounded currently by running the ground wire to the side of the tank. For those of you who have installed heating elements, how did you do it successfully?
Thanks in advance for your help.
