Angry hwh took a poop

and yes it was my fault, i went on vacation and did not turn the timer off. so it was going on and off without any oil in it. i pulled the bottom element out and it was shoot. replaced it with the top element and it still does not work. so i put a volt meter on the wires and i got nothing. what am i missing on this, is there more to the hwh than what you can see, meaning wiring or fuses

If I had to guess the Aqua stat and or it's control circuitry has burned out. There is over temp protection and other safety controls built into it. In the event your water heater over heats, this shuts it down before it explodes. first check to see if it has a reset. If not it will probably need to be replaced.

depending on the timmer you used, those cheap 5 dollar timers will burn up also so maybe check that.
