My water heater doesn't have any hot water.

I purchased a Kenmore water heater-model #153.326530 55 gal. I tried the trouble shooting section and went thru the steps to hit the reset button but that didn't work. If it did work, how long should we feel hot water if that fixed the problem? Does the High Temperature Shut off system have anything to do with it? I experienced very hot water the other night and then no hot water last night. My daughter was taking a shower and about 10 minutes into it she had no hot water at all. The manual indicates that it may be due to the high temperature shut off system so I went through the motions of resetting the high limit. Now went to test it and still no hot water. It says in the manual that if I need to reset it again, for me to contact the Sears Service Dept to find out why the high limit tured off the electrical power. I tried to call my local service center but they said that they couldn't help me and there was no technician to speak to. So I would appreciate any assistance you can give me. Thanks so much.

I understand that your water heater is doing some odd things and not keeping a set temperature on your water. I have taken some time to research your question here on the Manage My Life website and I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert.
