SOURCE: My electric reliance water heater is making a constant noise

it might be hard water in the heater. the hard water flakes and when your water heater turns on it creates some movement in those hard water flakes and makes a popping and hissing noise then when it comes to temperature it should stop. the temperature and pressure relief valve shouldn't make this noise. but if you stick your finger in the pipe and it is wet then you might have problems some where else. let me know if it is

SOURCE: Our electric water heater doesn't work.

make sure it is wired correctly, check circuit breaker, check breaker built on to element. If all fails, and it is determined your not getting power to it, you may need a electrician. Be careful. good luck.

SOURCE: TRYING TO REPLACE MY OLD RHEEM WATER HEATER MODEL

I would say your water heater is from the fury series; new model number 82V52-2. I've included a link with my solution that you should take a look at. You could also look at water heaters of a different brand if this one isn't available in your area. Kenmore, GE, and Hotpoint are all very good brands of water heaters.

Water heater is not identified.
Add a comment with information that appears on label on side of tank for possible help.
You might be talking about Whirlpool energy smart electric.
The error diagnostic lights flash a code: the code decipher is printed on the diagnostic control box on top of heater.
Call Whirlpool: you need model number and serial number from label located on side of tank.

I don't have a problem, just a question.....we are in the process of buying ahome and the hot water heater is a Reliance 501, 50 gallon tank....with serial number G94278175...I would like to know the...


State, Kenmore, Reliance, Ace , Ambassador, Barnett, Century, Crosley, Energy Stretcher, Freedom, Freedom/Nipsco, Hardware House, Master Plumber/True 5, Mission, Nationaline, Patriot, Penfield, President, Regency, Century, The Plumbery, Thermo-king, TopLine
1-letter month followed by 2-digit year

So it was manufactued in 1994. Most water heaters will last 5-10 years for gas and 10-15 for electric unless they receive yearly maintenance (flushing tank, cleaning) so it is already past its expected life span.

That being said, an electric water heater is more costly than a gas one. If I was in your place I would start saving to replace the unit with a tankless gas water heater, as soon as the house closed.

I have a MOR-FLO gas water heater and it is leaking from the bottom, what should I do ?


If your water heater is leaking from the bottom, and you are sure that it is not coming from anywhere else, then the tank is most likely rusted, and will need to be replaced.

I own a house with an electric GE hot water heater. 8ESOT12AA01 Serial # 090122 5750 I do not know how old the hot water heater is and advice about when it should be replaced. No leaks to date but I...


GE is made by Rheem, but the market is always changing. Rheem-based serial number shows tank was made in 1990.
Tank will last as long as anode rod(s) protects steel tank from rusting.
If your tank has two anode rods, then tanks lasts longer.
That's how companies determine if water heater is '6-year' or '12-year.'
I don't have manual for your product to say if you have 12 year tank. Side of tank might have information blurb besides mandatory label that shows serial number.
You can update your water heater by replacing anode rod(s) assuming they can be loosened and removed after this number of years, which is a big IF with old heaters. Your plumber might have impact wrench he uses to see if anode can come out.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Replace-anode-rod.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Leaking-water-heater.html

If the water heater is making gurgling rumbling and/or crackling sounds then tank has sediment build-up.
You can also get a baseline of rust by flushing tank and watching if water is very rusty.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Clean-sediment-out-of-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-will-not-drain.html

If you flush tank regularly, and inspect anode every 1-3 years, a tank will last many years longer than manufacturer's label.

My heater is not getting hot i can not tell if their is a pilot light or a reset button i don know what to do with the heater it is very different how can i heat my water heater


Reliance makes gas and electric water heaters.
http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/

Best way to start is to look at label on side of tank.
Label has serial number, model number, plus it will say if heater is gas or electric.
Reliance water heater age is shown in serial number: first digit is letter, second two digits are numbers: for example numbers 02 would be the year 2002.
If water heater is 8-12 years old, it might be time to consider new tank.

Gas water heater has 3 inch metal flue pipe coming out of top of tank.
Gas pilot is probably off.
Relight pilot light: Most gas water heaters today have instructions on side of tank just above gas valve that say how to relight pilot light. Instructions vary by model.
If you have gas water heater that is older, it might be easier to call a plumber.

Electric water heater has panels on front.
Open top panel and push in red reset button.
If you have electric water heater of any age, you can usually fix it yourself same day:
