Your description of the problem is confusing. When it is running, what is running? If it is the heating elements then you would not need to press the reset and you would have hot water. If it is the safety valve then the water was too hot or the pressure was too great. In either case the reset button would not cure that. we would have to know what is "running" in order to tell you how to fix it.
