Hot Water Heater & Reset Button
I posted some other places but I think my question should have been in this plumbing forum. Here is my question:
The hot water heater is 3 yrs old. It is making dangerous scalding hot water which automatically shuts it down. Hubby goes into basement and hits the reset and it starts up again. He adjusts the temperature to less hot. I run out of hot water in the shower everyday so he adjusts the temp back to where it was for the past 3 yrs and so it starts making scalding hot water again. Then it shuts down and he has to go press the reset button again. Cyclical problem.
What the heck! Can somebody help us, I'm trying to avoid calling the plumber if we can figure this out.
Any info provided would be helpful.
