If you have to keep resetting it the thermostat maybe going bad. They are not to costly maybe around $15 dollars.
Inspect the element's wiring and make sure that it look's intact and no burnt look to it. They can short out and trip the reset button also.
Turn power off and disconnect the thermostat one wire at a time and reconnect to new one. You could draw yourself a diagram of th ewiring pattern to make sure you wire it back up correctly.

I don't see a service manual posted on internet.
Without a service manual showing ohm-readings for testing different parts, you are left guessing which part is problem.
Most water heater manuals today recommend yearly service to catch up on most causes for failure including air in fuel line, dirty or corroded burner parts, defective sensor, loose connection, etc.

Breaker is tripping off every 20 min i know amp are right plz adviced me how to fix


need to know which breaker- house ele. panel breaker, which should be a min. of 50 amps,or the element breaker located inside either the upper or lower cover. If it is the element breaker/reset switch, this can be changed with great ease. Turn the power off and the ele. panel, check with a voltage meter to make certain power is off at the unit, loosen or remove the wires- making sure as to location of wiring, remove the switch and replace, reconnect wires, turn breaker back on,and you should be ready to go, This is assuming you have a 50 amp breaker in the electricial panel.
