Just replaced element, now no hot water.

I just replaced the lower element on my water heater, and now I get no hot water at all. It's not the breaker, and it is getting plenty of cold water in the tank. Any ideas? The heater was making hot water before I changed the element.

Did you reset the termostat after you replace the element? Unless you wired it incorrectly then that may be your problem.

Did you fill up the water heater with water before you turned on the electricity to the elements?
