Is the heater malfunctioned? Its a Pen-Plax Cascade heat
their might be a problem with the thermostat inside the heater, is ur heater placed vertically liek up and down or horizontally left to right? do you have water movement to circulate the water around the tank? i know my hob is on one side and i have a smaller circulation pump on the other side to make sure the water is evenly heated. i use the stealth line and have trouble keeping my water cool enough.
