Simply Build It

Wherever it is stored is obviously filling up too much, and therefore overflowing.

What have you looked at, if anything?

Where is your hot water stored?

Is there a ball valve regulating the flow of water?

could be a number of things such as split cylinder coil, faulty ball valve in header tank, system overventing.

more info needed.
