Wednesday, 9/5 – YEP that fixed it. A $7 thermal fuse. I plugged one into my multimeter (which I generally have no idea how to use) then looked on youtube for how to test. The old one didn’t seem to register. Then I got the new one, and it made a nice beep as if it’s conductivity approved. I knew that was the problem. I plugged it in and it fixed everything. Yay, one less problem.

Update, I pulled out the thermal fuse which I learned about on the below links + youtube video. I ran a continual check on it (no idea if I’m doing right) and it SEEMS like it’s bad. I am ordering a new part off Amazon. I’m hoping that will fix it.
Man I got the worst bonus I’ve got in 20 years to save me from my car that bit it, and my water heater that bit it ($700), then now guess what.
