Electric water heater tripping

so a few of you remember my post about water heater going out.
There's a little round brown button you push that's probably some type of circuit breaker on the unit itself. We have noticed if we push it in you can hear it start to work again and we have hot water in about an hour later. A few days later it does it again.

I replaced our pressure valve from our pressure tank/well about five months ago and never really adjusted the pressure as high as it was originally so when we flush the toilet it brings all the other water pressure way down in the house so eventually I'm gonna go out there and adjust it. What I be curious about is why the hot water keeps tripping. My wife brought up a good point and mentioned maybe it's doing that because it's running out of water due to low pressure
What's the hive think?
