we had a hot water heater installed and before the heater had any water in someone switched on the power. so the element burned out. they replaced the element but there is still no hot water. can the thermostat also be damaged by having the power on when the heater was empty?

Use a volt meter and with the power on touch the top two screws with the leads on upper stat it you have power there then if you have power there touch the leads on the elements to see if there is power flow to them.

Let me know what happens.
