Thermostat is tripping out due to thermostat or element may be going bad. Also take a look at the element's wire's connected to them and make sure there are no burn places. Because the thermostat will trip out for safety of the heater.
The thermostat's and elements are not exspensive to replace. Please inspect them very closely and be safe.

If you replace the thermostat please turn power off and changing the elements turn water off.
If elements need changing fill heater and get all air out of lines before turning the heater's power on.

HELLO, MY WATERHEATER KEEPS TRIPPING THE RESET BUTTON ABOUT TWO TIMES A MONTH. WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?


could be faulty thermostat/reset button, or shorted element. Breaker to water heater off,
Check elements for continuity to ground. should be no continuity to ground. If elements OK replace reset button. If you have noticed very hot water and elements checked OK then replace both thermostats along with reset button

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

If you reset the water heater the first time you were without, Then odds are it is the water heater. probably an element went back. If the power off check for continuity.
