      The water from my hot water heater is getting hotter without any changes in the thermostat setting. Is this a sign that the thermostat is going or that the whole heater should be replaced?

      is it electric or gas? how old is it? (post serial#) how hard is your water?

      Glen, You have to replace the thermostats. I would replace both the upper and lower while you are at it. That should solve your problem.

      Good luck,
      Scott

      It’s a an A O Smith gas water heater . At least 24 years old – came with the house. Can’t see the serial number- under the insulation blanket.

      If that boy is 24 yrs. old I would change it first chance I got before it goes all together and you have a mess on your hands
