I pulled this from a blog and thought it might help solve your problem.

If the high limits are good, then it is also possible that the tubes in the heat exchanger are clogged or the internal water flow bypass is malfunctioning and bypassing too much water. I don't know if the spring in the bypass is still available. I went back to the heater and gave the heat exchanger main pipe a rap or two with the handle end of a screw driver. The heater immediately began to make knocking, popping and rattling noises. (water flow problem)

I took off the main water connections to the heater and looked into the inlet end. I could see that the water flow bypass "spring" had broken off at both ends and was jammed downward - causing the water to flow through the main pipe, but not diverting into the heat exchanger. When I touched it with my fingers it was loose and flopping around inside.

The water bypass "spring" looks a lot like a salmon fishing flasher - about 10 inches long, 3inches wide and bent at the ends in opposite directions. Hayward used "epoxy" (not even welded) to attach the both ends to the main copper pipe that makes up the flow-through chamber for the heat exchanger.

Luckily there is 1/4 inch vertical tube that houses a temperature sensor for the thermostat at the inlet end of the main chamber. I was able to put a pipe clamp on this tube and force the water flow bypass spring up into it's proper position. Heater is now working great.
