      My 5-year-old Reliance electric water heater is set at the lowest temperature point, but the water is scalding hot. Twice it has turned off (flipped the breaker on the tank). When I reset the breaker, it heats up and stays very hot for a few days. Then it shuts down again. There are two temperature settings (one on each element). Can the thermostats be replaced by a farily handy owner? Would I have to replace both? Where would I find replacement thermostats? Thenks,Jerry Bauch
