      The lower element on our hot water heater needs reset EVERY morning (last 4 days) I turned down the water temp and it is still happening. Any ideas what this could be?

      The upper element sounds like it is working, and the area around the button seems warm, so I think it is the lower element only.

      thermostat is bad….. it is sticking dude. There are 2 of them on your heater. An upper and a lower. It dose not matter the name brand of the heater or the gallon ammount. turn off the elec. to the heater and replace the thermostats…. be sure you have the power SHUT OFF! I hope this helps out.
