Then, why is my water heater not getting hot?
When there's no hot water, the problem can stem from lack of power, a faulty electric thermostat or a faulty upper electric heating element. When the water's not hot enough, the problem can be an undersized water heater, crossed hot and cold connections, or a faulty heating element or thermostat.
Secondly, does a gas water heater have a heating element? GAS VALVE OR BURNER ASSEMBLY (HEATING) – Gas water heaters use a flame underneath the tank to heat the water, while electric water heaters use a heating element.
Subsequently, question is, what are the signs your hot water heater is going out?
7 Signs Your Water Heater is Going Out

- The Age of Your Water Heater.
- Insufficient Hot Water.

How do I fix No hot water?
Having no hot water could be a result of the High-Temperature Cutoff Switch being tripped. You can reset this switch by opening the panel and pressing a button; you should hear a clicking sound. If the switch reset, the power should have been restored to the water heater.
