: The factory temperature setting is very low and few plumbers take the time to reset it so that could be your problem. Otherwise the factory's inexpensive elements could have burned out. Neither one requires replacing the heater.

: : My home is 32 yrs old and I have a water heater that was installed 2 yrs ago. I cannot take a shower without the hot water running out. Do I need to replace my pipes? or buy a larger water heater? or can I increase the amount of hot water from my existing unit? Thank you.

:::It's possible you have a unit with a defective cold supply within the unit. If this tube breaks off cold water enters in the same area as hot is drawn out. There is a class action suite pending on certsin models made beween 93-96 you may have received the tail end of this batch. 1-800-329-0561 is the # for this suite, give them your model #.
