Modulator.......
Do you mean the circuit board that is on backside of water heater tank?

IF so and moving the wiring on it does affect the electric operation then you could have a 'DEL' model
Similar to the way Atwood uses DC to trigger AC to the element

DC goes to a DC/AC Relay...DC from electric on/off to JUNCTION Box to relay to element. Ground wire (Yellow) from circuit board ties to ground in junction box
No solid ground no electric

2 Junction Boxes (looking from the rear).......One left side/DC and One right side/AC----DC/AC Relay in AC Box

Is it time for your medication or mine?

Wire going to thermostat was loose and burned, replaced thermostat and wire connector. Symptom was first just low temp, then no heating on electric.
