The water from my water heater is very hot, why

If the water coming out of your faucets is too hot, it may be that the thermostats are set too high code requires the water to be less then 120 degrees F

but sometimes a thermostat goes bad and causes the water to get very very hot. there is a heat cut off in the thermostat but it may get to a scalding temperature before it trips, this is a good time to call a professional.
