We all know how important hot water is in our daily routines hot showers, laundry and washing dishes to name a few. So when your water heater’s reset button keeps tripping what should you do? The first time it happens remove the top panel on the water heater. Inside you will see a red reset button push it to reset the thermostat. If you do this and the button keeps tripping there is a problem with the thermostat and it should be replaced. When this happens try to notice if the water gets extremely hot right before it goes out. This indicates that the thermostats are bad or going bad. The reset button usually trips for safety to prevent the tank from overheating and potentially becoming a bomb. If your heater is continuously tripping you should call a Orlando plumbing company to replace the thermostats. We usually recommend replacing all old components with new parts this includes the elements. Which are screwed into the tank and are what actually heats the water up. If your water heater is older then 10 years you might want to think about replacing your heater. Spending money to repair a older water heater can potentially cost you more money in the long run. Hot water is very important but so is safety. That is why these devices are installed on your water heater. It is very important to not ignore your water heater.
