It is very humid right now. The electric water heater keeps going out. The landlord started to leave a fan on constantly down there for the humidity. This is very expensive leaving a fan on down there. I have an electric water heater where you hold in pilot and click a red button several times until it lights then put it to the level you want it. It keeps going out. Please help.

If you have a pilot light, you don't have an electric water heater! Anybody searching this can find a million answers elsewhere, but if you don't fix things on a regular basis then call a professional. Search "water heater repair" plus the name of your city and state. Tell them if it's an emergency.
