    Thanks heatman 101,

    But, will I need to order the replacement t-stat from Tempra and is it a user friendly install? Just say it. I need to call a local service rep, right?

The reset button is kicking out because the themostat is not....The reset is a safety switch so to speak. It is there to turn off the element incase the thermostat does not. I nrare situations the reset can go bad and kick at too low of a temperature, but usually not.To check out what is actually happening you will need to replace the t-sta and see what happens or sit there with an electric meter and monitor what happens in what order, very time consuming...
My recommendation would be to just change the t-stat and rest bot at once and you will be good again.

    I don't know how handy you are but yes you will have to order an OEM part from Tempra, but it does not look that dificult to install...I would talk to the tech. guys first and explain you issue and make sure that the part number 3 on this diagram is the part they would recommend replacing...that is what I would be replacing if I was servicing your could be part number 1 though...they would know which one commonly fails...

Tempra 24 installation. No hot water. No power led on fron cover. Is the led supposed to be on all the time or just when water is ran?

First, check the circuit breaker. Also, did you upgrade to heavier wiring and a double 60 circuit breaker when you had this installed?

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

If there is no hot water, first push the reset button on the high-temperature cutoff; test the thermostat and replace if faulty (see below). Test the heating elements and replace if faulty (see below).
If there is not enough hot water, adjust the thermostat settings. As needed, reset, test and replace thermostats and heating elements if faulty.
If the water is too hot, adjust the thermostat settings and reset. Test and replace the thermostat or high-limit cutoff (see below).
An electric water heater is a 240-volt appliance that can deliver a fatal shock. Always turn off power to the heater at the electrical panel 585dc480-4881-44a8-afda-7267c0f3de26.jpgbefore beginning work, and verify that power has been shut off. Make sure others in the house know not to restore electricity prematurely. If you have any doubt as to whether electricity has been turned off, seek professional assistance.

My Tempra, 29 Plus quit heating. I checked the breakers and they are ON. Where is the thermal cut-out located ? How is it reset? What temperatue should I set on the dial?

Take off front cover, on the top of the two cylinders in there (the heating system) there will be a small red button. That is the Safety Thermal Cut out, depress that red button. It is similar to a circuit breaker. If the red LED comes on when you turn on hot water at a sink then that was the problem. I have on that trips periodically. Its annoying but not enough to replace the part yet. Good luck.

Where do I find the reset button on the Stiebel Eltron Tempra 15?

On the Tempra 29 there is a "safety thermal cut-out" on the top of each of the heating elements within the box. I have had to open it up before to push the breaker. They are a small red plastic push button on the top. Carefully press the braker button without touching the electrical wiring inside. I hope that works for you.
