Question about RELIANCE ELECTRIC WATER HEATER
I check the breaker box and it is on.
If it was working and recently stopped working, the heating element that heats the water probably went bad, no longer functioning. Check to make sure that there is or is not a reset button, and if there is, press and reset the heater. It's not difficult to remove the old heater element and replace it, but make sure the circuit breaker power to the water heater is off when you remove it. Take it to a water heating supply store, or large hardware store with the Brand and model number of your water heater (Reliance RELIANCE ELECTRIC WATER HEATER,model 606 ) to buy another one.

it might be hard water in the heater. the hard water flakes and when your water heater turns on it creates some movement in those hard water flakes and makes a popping and hissing noise then when it comes to temperature it should stop. the temperature and pressure relief valve shouldn't make this noise. but if you stick your finger in the pipe and it is wet then you might have problems some where else. let me know if it is

it is located on the thermostat. Take the cover off the side and you will see a little red button in the side of the themostat.

We will just assume that "a" is the lowest temperature
to correspond to 120 degrees, while "c" for 160 degrees.
So try setting it at "a" and feel the hot water that flow.
Or it could be the other way. Just feel the hot water that
flow. It will be done in a few minutes. I hope this will help

this is either the thermocouple lead or the uni control i would replace the thermocouple leed first, these parts can't be repaired they have to be replaced

I wrote a page for changing water heater thermostat.
The photos take you through step-by-step
I recommend replacing both upper and lower thermostats so it eliminates thermostats as possible cause if water heater keeps overheating.
The Reliance 606 manual shows your water heater uses generic upper and lower thermostats from hardware store.
Likely the thermostat will solve the problem:
