Couple things come to mind. I think turning the temp knob LEFT makes it
hotter, can't imagine why. Seems like right oughta be hotter.
Try turn the knob left one letter, and see if it's warmer the next day.
Second, if t his doesn't help, you might have a bad dip tube. Since you're
asking these questions, it shows me that you don't have the plumbing
background to replace a dip tube. No disrespect intended, just that your
skills go in other directions.
If turning the knob left doesn't help, then it's time to call a plumber. Or
a handyman that is good with plumbing. I've replaced one dip tube, and it
was half hour or so work. I've done a bunch of plumbing soldering, so it
wasn't all that bad.
