I have a kenmore economizer 5 water heater, and its not pushing hot water to the house. It is electric. I dont have a manual for it, so I am not sure how I should reset it. I was told there is a restart button, But i have no idea where it is located. Could you please help me?

There is a panel on the front of the water heater. Under this panel is a red reset button. Please be very careful when you reset this button, the current you are dealing with is 220. There should be instructions on the back side of the panel you pull off. There should only be 2 screws holding the access cover on. You may have to remove the insulation covering the thermostat under the insulation. By the way, if the reset button went off, it may mean there is a problem with either the thermostat or the element. Pushing the reset button, may turn on the water heater, but it may go right back off after a few minutes.

Good luck
