Extremely hot water 153327565 Kenmore Electric water heater

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the water heater. 
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Electric water Heater model number 153.327565.

Most likely either your upper or lower heating elements have gone bad.  However, your thermostat could be stuck open.

Some helpful ideas to check:

1.  Verify the water heater is plugged in.  Reset the circuit breaker.

2.  Turn  off the power to the water heater and open the front acess panel.  Fold back the insulation and locate the red "reset" button.  Replace the insulation and close the access panel.  Restore power.

3.  Turn the thermostat down if the water is too hot.  Allow at least 1 hour for the temperature to adjust prior to using any water.

4.  If thermostat is working then you know to change the heating elements.

If you change the heating elements, be sure to also change the heating element gaskets.
