I keep having to push the reset button to get hot water each day. I have replaced the bottom element and the upper thermostat. Any suggestions?

Answer

Possible problems could be the other element or thermostat. It is faintly possible that a poor connection is requiring more current than it should, and that could go clear back to the breaker panel. You might try reducing the temperature some as well, although that, too, is unlikely to be the answer.
