A:

Thank you for your question. The water supply valve for most water heaters will be right next to it. The valve will be connected to the cold water inlet usually right above the water heater (see picture). If there is not a valve there, it may not have a supply valve. In this case, a plumber will be needed. The model number listed also shows this to be, an electric water heater. If the water supply is turned off, I recommend to also turn the power off to the water heater. This will help protect the heating elements. I hope this helps you. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.

Q:

What is the correct setting for the thermostats on this water heater?

A:

Per the previous answer: The normal settings are 120 - 130 degrees. It mainly depends, on how hot you like the water. The description listed, of how the thermostats and elements are working is normal. The elements never come on at the same time. The thermostats are designed, so they work the elements independently. So when the upper thermostat brings on the top element the bottom element will be off. When the top thermostat is satisfied, it transfers power to the lower thermostat, so it can bring on the lower element. If you need more assistance, you can resubmit your question with more details.
