Yes, by replacing the thermostat.

The reset is a part of the t-stat.

Disconnect power to the heater.
Remove the wires one at a time and place them on the same terminals for the new T-stat.
When all wires are changed to the new t-stat, remove the old one and install the new one. (Usually a clip and one screw)

I agree with you. The foam insulation should only be on the Hot Water side. The cold water side doesn't make any difference, as that temperature rarely changes in California.

Hope this helped you AK, thanks for choosing FixYa.

On our AE125, the thermal cut-off is tripping AFTER the water is turned off. The heating element is getting so hot you cannot touch it


The elements are getting over heated then set temperature.You have a defective thermostat. The elements will continue to heat until they reach the set point of the thermostat. Try to lower the temp setting first. If that does not fix it, you'll need to repalce the thermostat, located very near the element, under the screwed cover on the side of the tank.------------- To know how this heater works, read as follows:---

Because electric tankless water heaters have to instantaneously raise the temperature of incoming water to a selected hot water temperature, they require very powerful heating elements. To power the heating elements of this 27,000 Watt model, you will need to upgrade the electrical service you were using for your storage tank water heater. The PowerStar AE125 will require a 240V, 200 Amp service. In addition you will need to install three 40 amp dedicated double pole breakers in your electrical box. In Canada, you will require one 120 Amp breaker.

The PowerStar AE125 electric tankless water heater incorporates a very sensitive flow sensor, and three heating elements. The heat from the electric elements is electronically modulated on the basis of the flow rate of the water entering the water heater, and the temperature rise that the water heater must achieve. Through its electronic modulation system, the AE125 maintains a very precise hot water temperature. As a safety precaution, each of the three heating modules is protected by an electro-mechanical thermal cut-out. This device will cut power to a particular module if the temperature gets too hot.

A leak inside the water heater may be dripping on to the wires. This can be very dangerous and you may want to get the help of a professional.
Make sure the power is off before you remove the element covers, and remember MOST BREAKERS ARE MARKED WRONG, do not trust that they are marked correctly this can cost you your life.

Hello

Set the thermostat to a higher temperature if you are experiencing insufficient hot water. There may also be sediment or lime in the tank. If you suspect there is, drain the tank and determine whether water treatment is needed.

Determine whether the electrical switch is turned on or if there is a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker if you have absolutely no hot water.your high temperature light switch may be open. If it is, reset it. Finally, you may have a non-functioning thermostat, which you'll need to replace.

The thermostat may also be improperly calibrated. In that case, you'll need to replace the thermostat. You may also have long runs of exposed piping that are allowing the water to cool, causing you to need more hot water. In this case, insulate the piping.

Hot water working but heating not coming on,wiring seems to be correct,is there reset button maybe?


There usually is a reset button that is red. If this is a electric hot water heater it could be your heating element is out. They are pretty easy to do your self. Normally just take off a side cover slide old one and replace with new one. make sure you turn power off, and if you put in new element, DO NOT turn power on until water is filled in water heater, otherwise you will burn out new one. They have to be always in water to avoid burn out.

Water heater not heating water , single element 110v replaced still no hot water


How To Test High Temperature Cutoff Switch Located at the Upper Heating Element Before testing the electic water heater elements we should check out the high temperature cutoff switch since a problem there will simply turn off power to both heating elements.
On an electric water heater the upper heating element may have two, three, or four electrical terminals, and above the upper thermostat is a high temperature cutoff switch with four terminals. You should be able to identify these parts by looking at the water heater's wiring diagram found on the tank or inside the panel cover.
The electric water heater high-temperature cutoff swtich will turn off the entire water heater if temperatures are too high. If this cutoff is not working the water heater will simply not heat at all. You can use this switch to test to confirm that the incoming electrical power circuit is indeed bringing power to the water heater.
Turn off electrical power to the heater at the electrical panel: WARNING: possible fatal electrical shock
Set the multitester or VOM to its 250 VAC scale, and attach the tester probes or alligator clips to the two uppermost terminals on the control (L1 and L3 on the top left and top right in our photo below). These are normally the incoming electrical wires from the power circuit to the heater. "L" refers to "Line voltage" on most controls.
Test for line voltage: Now you can turn on electrical power to the heater. Your VOM should show voltage close to the voltage on the water heater's identification tag: typically this will be 208V or 240V for a 240V water heater, or it might be just 115V or 120V for a 120V water heater. If you do not see voltage close to the rated voltage you need to call an electrician to diagnose and repair the problem.
Turn off Electrical Power to the Water Heater again. Don't skip this step or you may be killed or you may ruin your test equipment.
Test the High Temperature Cutoff Switch itself: set the VOM to its Ohm or resistance scale using the most sensitive setting (R x 1). Touch one probe to the upper left terminal on the control (L1 in our photo at left). Touch the other probe to the lower left hand terminal on the control (T2 in our photo at left).
The ohm meter needle should move (or your digital multimeter DMM should show some number other than infinity). If no continuity and infinite resistance is what you read, try pressing the reset button on this control (the red "RESET" button in our photo at left).
If you cannot reset the control then this device is not working and it needs to be replaced.
