Why does the reset button on one of the tanks keep kicking when no water is being used?


The tank is overheating when not in use. If it is an electric water heater, you must replace the upper and lower thermostats as well as the high limit(reset button). If the tank is 10 years old or more, you may want to replace it rather than fix it as the average life of a tank is about 10 years before it starts leaking.

Water heating not heating water


The Emmerson W152 is ordinary 1-year warranty 120Volt electric storage water heater, except with bronze tank. The bronze tank will not rust, and therefore tank does not have anode rod, and tank has 5 year warranty.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Emmerson-point-of-use-water-heater.pdf
Actions to take:
1) Check circuit breaker.
2) Emmerson plugs into 120V outlet. See if outlet works for other 120Volt light or can opener.
3) Turn off power and do following:
4) Open cover on water heater, and press in reset button.
If reset will not reset, then replace thermostat with ordinary generic thermostat from hardware store.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html
5) If reset button is not tripped, test element.
6) Emmerson has 1500 watt element, and correct ohm reading at 120 volts should be around 9.6ohms
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-element.html
7) This element is 7" long, and is also generic, and should be available at hardware, or plumbing supply, or Google-search 'Emerson appliance water heater element.'

I have a giant hot water heater which is 12 years old and it provides hot water for only one normal shower. Why so little heat? Does it need to be replaced or is there something else that should be...


You probably need to replace the water heater. Water heaters accumulate a build up of lime and other mineral deposits that are present in water. This covers the bottom of the tank and heating elements over time, and makes them operate inefficiently. Draining the tank periodically helps prevent this from happening, but once it has reached to point you explained, it is best just to replace it with a new one.

Top element only working


How they work. First you need to know that cold water goes into the tank near the bottom (because of the "dip tube" inside the tank) and hot water is taken out at the top. Also hot water naturally rises.
so... when the tank is full of cold water the top element will come on and heat up the top 1/3 of the water then the bottom element will come on and finish heating the rest of the tank.
so... set them both at the temperature you want the water to be... about 120^F.

Top thermostat reset button kicks out


The top button is connected to the top heater element  which is likely shorting out. Drain the tank below the element that the thermostat is attached to. Remove and replace the element
