My hot water heater wont start. Last weekend my basement got flooded, and the motor to my hot water heater was under water. I was able to dry it out and get it running, but last night it stopped working again. I have had this happen before. The first time my father cleaned the cad cell sensor , the second time I had a repair man come in and he replaced it. I am trying to clean it myself, but I can't get it out.

Thank you

Under water

Any electrical components which have been under water should be replaced. This means motors & controls. Failure to replace the controls is taking a BIG risk.
