First check for loose electrical connections to the upper element, thiscan cause the t-stat to get hot and trip the thermo disc in the energy cut off (Breaker)
Check for a shorted element.
If there are no problems with the above
Purchase an upper and lower t-stat for the voltage rating of your water heater.
Each one will have a wiring diagram enclosed.
In most cases yellow and blue are for the upper element…red and black to the lower.
follow the wiring diagram that comes with the new t-stats.
Be sure to turn off the power before any repairs are attempted.
