why does my whirlpool gas water heater thermal switch keep

This answer was rated:

why does my whirlpool gas water heater thermal switch keep popping out?
Either the switch is bad, or the thermostat for the heater is bad and the water is getting too hot. Try to turn the temperature down and if it still trips the thermal switch replace the switch (assuming the hot water does get cooler), otherwise replace the thermostat.
