The thermostat probe inside the tank is scaling up with mineral buildup. You can drain the tank and then remove the control. Soak the thermostats probe in vinegar and a little baking soda. Do not let the mix get into the control box. Reinstall the control once the scale is removed. If this does not help, you will need to replace the control box.

Why do we need to have to continuously adjust the temperature of the water when we're taking a shower. We have a new Rheem gas .hot water tank


It *may* not be a problem with the water heater itself necessarily. When you say "keep adjusting the water temperature when you're taking a shower" I presume you're talking about turning the shower hot/cold knob(s) and not the temp thermostat on the water heater itself.
If so, when it starts to run colder, turn the knob all the way to full hot. Is the water then very hot? If so, the water heater is working fine & doing its job, and the problem is likely to be in the shower faucet mixing valve itself. Sometimes a faulty one will expand the inner seals/cartridge as hot water flows thru it, and starts to (wrongly) restrict the hot water flow, thus causing the constant need to "turn the dial up a notch".

Our water heater runs out of hot water after a couple showers. Does it need to be replaced? Is there something on it that I can check? Does increasing the temperature setting help?


when was the last time that you have "opened the flush valve (faucet) at the bottom of the tank to clear out the sediment? if it has been more then 4 years then you will need to do this depending where you are located this should be done once a year just to keep the tank clean. attach your garden hose to the valve and run it over to the sink open the valve for a few moments to clear out the tanks bottom (HOT WATER ALERT!) after doing this and if you have seen dirt come out then your tank should be clear. check to see what the tempature is every 1/4 inch is 10-30* increase hope this helps

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.

Low amount of hot water


You say a very new water heater. You won't get 40 gallons of hot water from a 40 gallon water heater because the continuing influx of cold water will cool your hot water down. However, it appears that your bottom water heater element needs replacing. If the top element is bad, you'll get no hot water. If your bottom element is bad, you'll get "some" hot water. Try replacing the bottom element. DON'T FORGET to turn off the electricity AND water first (closeby towels are also handy)!

In most of the tankless water heaters the tempature of the warter is controled by the rate(amount) of vlow of the water passing through the unit. Turn down the flow of water going into the water heater and the water that is still passing through will be hotter. Carefully. A little at a time,so as not to be too hot.

Inadequate hot water supply


Tankless Water heater tempature is regulated by the rate(amount) of water flowing through the device. To get warmer water for the hot side, slow down the elbo stop leading into the device. Since it is a shower,and you did not say one handle or two.You will have to slow the rate for the cold as well , if one, unless it is an ajustable valve. The drawbacks to the tankless heaters.

Duissamble the faucet after turning off the shutoff vavev and look for an obstruction. The only shutoff if the tempature gets too high is the pressure/tempature pop off valve which would redrirect the discharge down another path. Go to the waterheater and see if it is coming out from another open pipe from the heater.
