Why is my water getting hotter?

When hot water heaters get old and are close to the end of their lives, often, they start running extra hot.

If this is happening to you turn down the temperature and Be careful, the sensor or thermostat isn’t communicating with the burner or electric elements.   If the temp gets too hot water will dump out the tank, through the T&P valve, creating a wet mess in your basement.
