Question about Water Heaters
You most likely need to replace your thermostat. If your thermostat isn't cutting the supply to the element at the preset temperature, as it is meant to, the unit will keep on heating until the over-temperature cut-out operates. This is what the "reset button" is resetting. You should get an electrician or qualified service bloke to replace it so you dont go hurting yourself.
