Woody's Water Heaters went out
of business in June 2011. Marine Direct manufactures
replacement elements and supplies thermostats for your Woody's heater.

Technical Note: If the element has burnt out and/or the water heater is older than 10 years, then you should also replace the thermostat. The elements are a direct replacement for your old element, however they are of a more modern design implemented by Woody's in about 2002. It is also recommended that you take time to carefully check all wiring connections AND ensure that the earth wires are still attached to the body of the water heater and in good condition. (Many customers report the 240 volt earth wires have water damage or the earthing connectors have simply fallen off! This is very dangerous, but easily fixed.)
How to get extra life out of your Woody's Water Heater: Our experience is that internal marine water heater tanks fail (ie. leak) because of fresh water electrolysis. To stop this
occurring, run a wire between the body of the motor (engine) and the water heater. Ensure that your water heater is properly 240 volt earthed and if in doubt always have a qualified electrician do this for you. (We make no claim to be electricians. Use a licensed electrician!)
Warranty: A one year warranty is offered for these elements IF you have purchased and installed a new thermostat from us at the same time. (Like everything else, elements have a natural life span. A faulty element can damage a thermostat. Likewise a water heater run dry can damage both the element and thermostat. A damaged thermostat will quickly destroy a brand new element. It is a vicious circle!)
Australian Deliveries: Australian express freight is included in the price.
International: We will ship to any location outside of Australia by registered airmail for $60 for up to two elements including a thermostat.
110 volt Elements: *110 volt elements
are available but are far more expensive to manufacture and there is less demand.
