    🙁 Why does the t-stat reset button trip every time the hot water is used? The tank heats up the water after button has been reset. As soon as the water is used it trips the reset button again.

    Reset button trips due to high temperature.

    Either

    1. Thermostat is set too high, or
    2. Thermostat contacts are stuck closed and not opening, or
    3. Element is cracked and continues to heat (using water to complete the circuit) even after the thermostat opens one leg.

    “Tanklets” at the top of The Tank. Then go to Electric WH Issues for troubleshooting guidance.
