Cab Heater

Did I install my engine block heater wrong? It is the external tank style?

I bought a 1500 watt heater for my 83 GMC pickup and installed it where the old heater was and it looked good, but it turned itself off the first night so my truck was cold in the morning, and I put in on today just to see if it worked and it got hot and was pushing hot coolant to the engine but two hours later it shut off and the truck was cold. Now the tank won't get hot and I am worried the element burned out. I connected it with the arrow pointing up so the coolant would flowing to the engine (water heater?) and the hose was coming from what looked like the cab of the truck where the heating switch would be. Does this make sense? The old tank heater worked for years so I'm not sure why this one is having problems.

did you install it below the water hight install them as low as possible re check your house power thease new parts if made on china or somewhere may be junk parts spend a little more and get a good one or just get a freeze plug heater i use cmagnetic stick on ones i can swap it in seconds to another car
