Heater Malfunctioning?!

Evanwd

My 10 gallon tank was running a little cool so I inspected the heater. It’s super hot on the lower end of the glass ( vaporizes the water) but the top half is really cold. Is it malfunctioning should I keep it out of the tank?

Heaters are cheap for 10 gallons. Best to replace it.

Condensation is normal for submersible heaters, but if the amount of water is increasing, it might have a leak .

I compared it to my other heater it definitely has a substantial amount more than the other in it. Thankful for my spare heater that was laying around right now.
