http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html

2) if you have electric water heater, and too much hot water, then thermostat may be bad, or element is shorted and needs replacement. Test elements first, and if they're ok then replace both thermostats.

Water heater


Most instant-on tankless water heaters require at least 10 psi of water pressure to start the heating process. The flow of water determines how hot the water will be, within the heating range. An electric 110 volts heater will increase the water temperature about 25 degrees F. A gas water heater will increase the water temperature about 45 degrees F.
Too much flow will not allow the water time to heat. Too little flow will not allow the heating system to work. Each heater must have the outflow water flow adjusted for the best heating outcomes. The best way to find the ideal flow is to turn the hot water facet on and adjust it (open or close) until the water reaches the balance of producing hot water.

Water heats up then trips off red button


The lit red button may be an indicator that the water temperature inside the water heater flow channel has become too hot. If the outflow facet is adjusted to allow more water outflow (opened more) the water temperature should drop some and therefore with increased water flow, the temperature inside the water heater will also decrease. Or, if there is a manually adjustable outflow valve on the water heater, adjusting it to a more open position would also decrease the internal temperature.

Why do we need to have to continuously adjust the temperature of the water when we're taking a shower. We have a new Rheem gas .hot water tank


It *may* not be a problem with the water heater itself necessarily. When you say "keep adjusting the water temperature when you're taking a shower" I presume you're talking about turning the shower hot/cold knob(s) and not the temp thermostat on the water heater itself.
If so, when it starts to run colder, turn the knob all the way to full hot. Is the water then very hot? If so, the water heater is working fine & doing its job, and the problem is likely to be in the shower faucet mixing valve itself. Sometimes a faulty one will expand the inner seals/cartridge as hot water flows thru it, and starts to (wrongly) restrict the hot water flow, thus causing the constant need to "turn the dial up a notch".

How to adjust hot water Gets too hot


Check you data plate. The inlet temperature must match the machine requirements, which means that your incoming water is too hot and the water heater temperature needs to be turned down. Here is a link to a installation/service manual. http://www.webstaurantstore.com/documents/pdf/wareforce_cg_service_manual.pdf

I have an Atwood GGA-8E about 6 months old was getting hot water but now the water is only luke warm, any adjustments?


There should be a temperature setting on the gas valve. It should be on top or front and have several settings normally vacation, warm and hot. Rotate dial towards hot setting to increase water temperature. Hope this helps. Thanks
