Why Is Your Water Heater Tripping?

Posted by admin on Mar 10, 2019 in Troubleshooting, Water Heaters

Is your water heater tripping its reset button?  If you push the red button to reset it and it happens again, it is time to call a plumber.  There are a few reasons this could be happening.  One, one or both of your thermostats could have gone out.  This could result in the water becoming dangerously hot.  Two, the elements could be bad.  At least with failed elements, the water cannot get hot enough to scald anyone.  It could also be bad wiring causing an issue and excessive heating.   If your reset button continues to trip, call a plumber and get to the bottom of it.
