If your electric water heater or immersion is not workingn then the chances are that the element has failed. Common factors in this failure are the age of the element and build-ups of calcium that happen over time. Some electricians will fit a protective sheath for the element upon installation, but many are vulnerable to the kind of build-ups that your kettle suffers from. This means it may become less efficient over time.
In most cases, the water tank will need to be drained in order to effect a repair, which can take some time. The electrician can then assess the problem and see if a new element may be needed or if the current one can be repaired. Other problems with your water heater include a faulty thermostat or timer. In both of these cases your electrician should be able to find the problem quickly and replace the parts, often with standard pieces that he will have with him.
