It is not necessarily the thermostats. You have one or two bad elements. Check the both and replace the bad one(s). Then you will have to test the thermostats, once the water is hot, to see if the elements damaged the thermostats when they burned out.

: I have a Reliance Water Heater Model 805 that does not shut off, the upper thermostat trips. I then have to reset it but the water gets scalding hot then trips. I'm thinking the lower thermostat may be bad. Its turned to the lowest point. If it is the problem, where can I buy a replacement? Thanks, Dick Zornes
