Lloyd, I do use the search quite a bit, and have already learned much from this site. I'm trying to pay on that by posting my repairs. I wasn't real sure how "orange light thingie" would be handled by the search engine! That sounds better than mentioned I was so tired by that time I simply couldn't think straight.
So not broken. Light on, is broken. The switch for hot water in my previous Cougar came on when switched on, was just thinking it would be the same. Assumptions are very dangerous things! That red light glowing as I left for work every morning was my reminder to turn it off on the way out. I really didn't see why I should heat water for ten hours while I was gone. I'll come up with something. And you folks have some really neat lighting ideas!
