Answers -

get someone qualified to come and inspect it...water and electricity do not mix well if there is a fault.... Have you checked that the thermostat is set to the correct setting?

There are two switches on your main circuit board in the house for the geyser. Put both in the off position and then put both in the on position. If the water does not heat up after an hour you will have to rely on an electician to assist you.

Assuming the power is on, it's either thermostat or element that's gone.

It is broken! Call an electrician!

Thermostat could be faulty or not set correctly. Rather get in a qualified electrician to check it out.

Sounds like a thermostat problem, ask a qualified plumber/electrician !

Sounds like the thermostat... Sometimes it's something as simple as the thermostat wire that came lose... We had a similar incident... ask a friend who knows something, before calling plumber and paying exorbitant call out fee !!

This does not make sense. If current is being used, there should be hot water. Has anything else, like a valve, been replaced? Maybe the water in the geyser is hot but is being bypassed by the water flow. Please let us know what you find out eventually.

Have it checked.

It could be a pressure relief valve blowing off the water, and possibly weakened over time. If you see water spraying out the valves or the drain pipe - thats the problem. I cant imagine any other reason it would use so much power and not make hot water.

30 units of electricity = 30 kW , a lot of power! This amounts to approx 5 kW of power per hour for 6 hours. If the water is somehow bypassing the tank and not heating up, then the element has been glowing red hot like a heater's bar, and has probably burnt itself out by now. Unless you are handy with d.i.y.projects, you will have to get an electrician/plumber to check the installation for the sake of safety. Trying to save a call out fee could cost you dearly in destroyed property, and peoples' lives even.
