How do I replace a Thermostat in a Water Heater?

The water temperature is constantly monitored by the thermostat. When the water temperature drops beneath the desired setting, the thermostat sends power to the electric heating element or gas burner to start heating. If the thermostat doesn't send power to the heating element, it's time to replace it. The gas control assembly should be replaced in a gas water heating system.
