SOURCE: Rheem 50 Gal Hot Water Heater will not stay lit

On the back of the gas valve (where you turn the temp up) there is a stem that actually goes into the tank that senses the temprature of the water it could be dirty or buried in sediment depending on how old the tank is, or just bad. if the tank is over 10 years old i wouldn't bother replacing the gas valve, the tank is probably not far behind. A new valve will run around $100.00 maybe a little less. You wont find it at menards or home depot in stock but they may be able to order it for you. Menards sells rheem products or try you local plumbing supply house. REMEMBER TO RELIEVE THE PRESSURE ON THE TANK BEFORE YOU WORK ON IT. IF YOU CHANGE THE VALVE DRAIN IT FIRST!

SOURCE: Rheem Hot Water Cylider Thermostat keeps tripping

Sounds like you have a faulty thermostat.  This is the unit that detects the water temperature, and if it is not where it is set, will kick the switch to allow electricity to flow to the elements you replaced. The thermostats are relatively cheap and if you have the knowledge to change the elements, changing these thermostats should not be a problem.

If you don't have current, 0v from terminal to terminal, then you don't have voltage to the elements. Replace the thermostat but check that you have 220v to the thermostat. It is possible that your breakers to the unit are either bad or tripped.

SOURCE: My Rheem hot water heater stopped putting out hot

If you are not familiar with the element, I would get someone that is familiar with one and have them do it. It's not something I would recommend you do based on your question. There's electrical, pressurized water tank, and a whole lot of water that may cause you to have a worse bad day.

I changed the heating element and still no hot water on electric water heater.


The element is not receiving power. Check the power source to the hot water heater and the element and thermostat operation.

Hot water recover time


No.
Fold-back elements are low-watt-density, so element does not burn out as easily since heating is spread across more surface area. But recovery remains 16 gallon per hour.
20 amp breaker and 12 gauge wire: max 3800 watts
30 amp breaker and 10 gauge wire: max 5800 watt.
4500 watt element heats 20 gallons per hour.

Instead of changing elements: Set thermostats higher so more cold is added to hot water, and then you have more hot water available inside tank.

How do i change the upp and lower heating elements


Copy following link for step-by-step
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-water-heater-element.html

You might want to test them first.
If water heater has some hot water, then upper element is good.

If elements test good, then problem can be thermostats.

MY Rheem 81SV40D Water Heater (47 gal) does not heat enough water. Approximately one bath worth.


You have dual-element 240Volt electric water heater.
Since you have some hot water, then we know upper element is good, and that circuit breaker and electricity to water heater are good.
Not enough hot water is probably bad lower element, and possibly sediment build-up in bottom of tank.
Test element:

Replace 4500 watt element available at local hardware, and clean out bottom of tank:

Rheem electric water heater 50 gallon, lukewarm water. Water is warm but not hot, where should we look for problem?


Luke warm water is the result of top element bad and the bottom is the only one heater. The best solution I can reccomend is to change both out due to the fact the bottom element may go bad and since you have to change one you might as well change both.

Turn power and water off, drain heater down and once water is drained out change them out. Once new ones installed turn water on to fill heater and open faucets and get air out on the hot side of each faucet once water is flowing out of each faucet you are now ready to turn power back on.

Only warm, not hot water from our tap unless I slow the tap down.


Warm water indicates a element is probally in need of replacement. For warm water only more than likely the top element is bad. If you get a burst of hot water for a little while then your bottom one is probally gone bad. Best to replace both elements when changing one out due to not being to exspensive and you have to drain it down anyway.

To change out shut water of and turn power of to water heater open hot side on a faucet to allow heater to drain down so you can change out element.
