That is one old heater. If it is electric the top element may be bad, or most probable is the tank is full of sediment which you or may not be able to drain. Personally I would not spend any or time on a old water heater. It sis very inefficient lose heat since the tnpk has minimal insulation which cost you money for more energy to reheat it.

We bought one of the cheap models of a tankless heater. The original elements did not last very long. So I would take them out to test and inspect. The control circuit board did not last long either. So we were able to buy a new control board also.

Attempting to replace the flutter valve is ambitious and may be a ticket to a more expensive repair. First you need to locate the valve and then decide if you have the tools and skill to attempt the job. I would look at the manufacturer's website for an exploded view of the water heater and then go to your water heater and check it out. You will need to seal the threads on the line the valve is attached to, so a trip to a plumbing shop or a hardware store is also in order. By the time you pay for the sealant and your time and effort in finding the part you may be money ahead to leave this to a pro. The only web references I could find for the name and model of your water heater were in Indonesian, so good luck finding English translations of their technical materials.
