Why does the reset button on one of the tanks keep kicking when no water is being used?

The tank is overheating when not in use. If it is an electric water heater, you must replace the upper and lower thermostats as well as the high limit(reset button). If the tank is 10 years old or more, you may want to replace it rather than fix it as the average life of a tank is about 10 years before it starts leaking.

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.

Limited hot water from 62 gal ge model D03666 looking for type and how to replace heating elements

Open following links to get started.
If water heater has NO hot water, then best suspect is ECO reset button tripped on upper thermostat. Open upper cover and push in red reset button. If reset keeps tripping, I usually replace both upper and lower thermostat.

If water heater has some hot water, then upper element is good so test lower element.

I have an AO Smith Model EES 52 917 hot water heater. This morning my hot water suddenly disappeared. I have tried resetting the breaker with no luck.. I am not sure what else to try.

You have electric water heater.

Inside the upper panel on water heater is a thermostat with red reset button.
1) Click the reset.
2) Put insulation back over thermostat so it is not exposed to cooler air, so it reads correct temperature.

After resetting thermostat, you will have hot water.
The reset automatically clicks off when thermostat detects temperatures in excess of 150 degrees.
The re-set is a safety device, and it keeps everything safe.
If reset will not 're-set' with cold water in the tank, then thermostat is bad, replace thermostat.
You can repair electric water heater yourself following steps on links below

If the reset clicks off again, just reset it
This is not a dangerous situation
Reset thermostat as many times as necessary until you can fix the problem

If you have trouble fixing the problem, add a comment at bottom of this page and it sends me an e-mail and I will help further

Lose of hot water at times

If you keep kicking the reset you have a thermostat that is could be either the top or the bottom one...but you will have the check and see if it is switching to the bottom element or not...if it does switch to the bottom it is the bottom t-stat bad, if not then the top one is bad...

Electric hot water heater keeps throwing reset button

You most likely need to replace your thermostat. If your thermostat isn't cutting the supply to the element at the preset temperature, as it is meant to, the unit will keep on heating until the over-temperature cut-out operates. This is what the "reset button" is resetting. You should get an electrician or qualified service bloke to replace it so you dont go hurting yourself.

I bought a 19 gal. hot water heater in March of 2008. Model EIF20USO15V. Product #0800130. It worked for 3 or 4 months and then stopped producing hot water. I pushed the reset button once and it works...

My initial thought is the thermal protector reset has had it last reset. the question is why does it keep tripping? you may have other problems.

Unplug or turn the power off. make a wiring diagram of how the wires go where. tag them with masking tape if you have to.

Now remove the reset and take it to your local Hardware store. they should have a compariable replacement, if not maybe they can recommend a plumber who would have it.

Best of Luck!
