Usually when the high limit is tripping it is because of a element shorted to ground. The problem can be diagonsed with an ohm meter and replacing the defective element should solve the problem.

It sounds like the thremostat may be shorting out they are not to exspensive to replace.

It it constantly triping there is a wire touching somewhere.

Electric wh high temp shut off button keeps resetting


Water heater has upper and lower elements. Only one t-stat. Check to see where tstat is set to. Turn down to lowest level. If breaker still resets then replace tstat. It is letting the water get to hot no matter what setting it's on. So water is getting so hot that it trips breaker.

No hot water.


Please get an expert in - this is either the breaker is faulty or you have an electric fault int he boiler. You can try and replace the breaker - but match the current rating. But this could be dangerous if you keep trying to reset.
