Thank you for the question. I can understand your concern about the water getting too hot. Unfortunately, there is nothing else that controls the water temperature. Check the water temperature at the faucet to see what it's getting up to. At the lowest setting it should be approx. 120 degrees and at the A setting it should be approx. 130 degrees (see first image). If the temperature is getting in excess of 150 degrees at either of these settings, it does indicate the thermostats have failed. Since the thermostats have been replaced and if they are making good contact with the tank, it may be a wiring problem. I'm attaching a picture of a typical wiring diagram for these thermostats in the second image. If the wiring is ok, it would lead to the thermostats again. In this case, you may want to have a technician check it. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Thank you for your question. I know it can be frustrating when there is no hot water. First, check for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is ok, remove the cover and press the red reset button on the top thermostat of the water heater. Some models may have a reset on the bottom thermostat also. If the reset makes a clicking sound when pressed, it means it was tripped. Be very careful when moving the insulation away in front of the thermostats. You may want to turn the breaker off first. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

A:

I can understand your concern about the anode rod. The information you have received from Barbara is very good. It should not be necessary to do anything with the secondary anode rod unless the water pressure drops at the faucets. The secondary anode in this unit is part of the water outlet and unless it starts to restrict the water flow, it will be ok. Many water heaters do not even have a secondary anode rod. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.
