It would be too risky to try to tell you how to rewire it without seeing the actual water heater, and your description of the wires is a bit brief to determine that anyway.

: Can't find problem. Water (electric heater) getting WAY too hot. Figured upper thermostat high temperature cutoff not working? Saw a burned connection there - got RED hot at the screw. Trying to replace thermostat, but replacement has five terminals (plus two connected by bridge on left side), old thermostat has SIX wires coming in. Nothing is connected to the bridge on old hookup, three wires to the top and three wires to the bottom. On replacement there's only two free terminals on the bottom - - where does the extra wire go? Thanks!
