      i believe that my electric water heater was dry fired. it worked ok for 1 weekend. now i have no hot water. the unit is only a few years old. i checked resistance on upper and lower elements(approx 25ohms ea) i have power into the upper and lower thermostat but no voltage to either elements,,help.

      You say two things here = you beleive the unit was dry fired – by that I take you to mean it was turned on and the thermostats applied power to the elements with no water in the cylinder if that was the case than it is a fair bet your elements are shot.
      If that was not what you meant – then you say you have power to the thermostats BUT do you have power on the outlet terminals from the thermostats to the elements – if not I suspect your thermostats may be at fault – if you do have outlet power then it is not rocket science to suggest your elements are the cause of your grief.
