Sounds like your heater is broken. It failed and stuck in the "on" position so it is continually heating the water instead of turning on and off as intended.

New heater?

Is it summertime?

Both problems can be solved.

-If your heater is suddenly hot get a new one.

-Try putting a fan/air conditioner near your tank.

I hope I was able to help
