Question about Water Heaters
If it is a standard gas heater and has a spark ignitor hanging in the side of the gas control of is probably not the ignitor. Usually that is the spark tip inside the chamber. Clean it with emery cloth and spark should restore. If gas control has ignitor built in you will have to replace the control. Try cleaning the spark tip first. If you have a power vent you have to pull the burner out of the heater and replace the entire flame sensor/ignitor assembly.

SOURCE: I need the basics for replacing a thermostat on a water heater...Bradford/White brand, model M250S6DS2 50 Gal, 4500 watt per element 240 voltage 50/60 hz. It keeps over heating even at lowest setting
Copy following link for replacing thermostat.
Suggest you might also want to test the elements while power is turned off, just in case the problem is element shorted to ground across metal tank to ground wire.
At least you know the 240volt power to water heater and the circuit breaker are good.
