Welcome to JA!
How long does the heater stay on? How old is the water heater? Have you checked the water temperature at the drain valve?
If it is cycling on and off then the thermostat is not working.

This water heater does not have a convevtional thermostat that is accessable. The problem has to be in the computer.
This answer is totally wrong. This is not a conventional water heater it is computer controlled and does not have a user accessible thermostat. I'm very unhappy with my expert.
