30 to 45 minutes seems about average.

I'm a plumber! And there is Two elements. Their is one close to the bottom and one close to the middle! REMEMBER to turn off the electric supply FIRST!
Sounds like your fixing only half the problem OR you're on well water and it's full of Iron, Sand, and Calcium Rocks and retarding or shorting out your elements!
Look inside when you have the element out or pull the bottom one out and turn off the main fuse FIRST and with BOTH out stick a water hose in the top and giggle a long screw driver in side! BEING VERY CAREFUL FOR It's LINED WITH GLASS!
Shout me if you need help!
