    Hi all,

    Was called out to check why 2 new immersion elements had gone. They both had been replaced recently.

    On closer inpsection found the economy 7 immersion cable had melted and caused connections to melt and is irrepairable

    Second peak immersion looked fine> Did a insulation resistance and got >500 megohms.

    I noticed thermostat had been turned to full.

    Could this be what damaged the element
