I tried to fill the bathtub today and the water started to go cold. I had the same problem a month ago and thought it was just a fluke. I turned the tap off for a few minutes and the hot water returned.

There was no one else taking a shower nor using the washing machine, so I don't understand what caused the hot water shortage.

Its a gas tank that is 4 years old. I'm wondering if there's a temperature sensor that may be acting up. If so, is there a way to diagnose it since its so sporatic?

1-When was the last time someone read the manufacturers directions about draining water from the bottom to remove any build up sediment that can rob the tank from efficiency by coating the bottom with mineral deposits

2- Is there a return circulation line provided?

3- Is it possible you have a cross connection like a washing machine with out any back flow devices allowing Cold to mix with the hot?

4- Do you have Moen shower body's?

5- Do you have a shower capable of being shut off by the head not by the valves?
