The thermostat is used on the new unit for gas and electric on the old it had 2 thermostats, so knowing this, please expand on your question a bit so I can help you better, thanks
thanks for responding, so did you replace the entire unit, or just the tank?
the old tank had accomidation for the thermostats, the new does not on the 10e, it uses that relay and receives a signal from a different control module to turn it on/off, the thermostat being the same for both gas and electric. Is your issue that there is no where to put the original thermostat for the electric element on the rear?
the problem is the 10e uses the thermostat located on the front to operate the gas and electric, the control board is different, when the thermostat calls for heat gas or electric, it sends a signal on gas to the valve and igniter, on electric to the solenoid, there is no accommodation for the thermostat and eoc on the 10e, would be best if you got the correct tank
thanks I'm curious are you welding a couple of threaded studs on the back?
Excellent, good job, I will relate that to others. thanks Michael
