Why do you say put in line to stop the buzzing? What is it that tells you the wire is creating the buzz?

It could be anything from a loose sheet metal part, rivet, fan, transformer, loose connection, or just the way it was built, although a loud buzz sounds like a problem waiting to happen to me.

No there is nothing to put in line to make it quit buzzing, I need to know all the information about the device, voltage, amps, brand, and then tell me how it is wired including number of wires, size of wires, voltage, how it is wired to what colors, how far from breaker, what breaker and size, and anything else that seemed unusual to you during install if anything.

Write me back here or allexperts.com or wbwill@sbcglobal.net.

Rheen PVW50 Hot Water Heater Making Buzzing Noise and Doesn't Light


Why is it always Rheem problems?
Every water heater problem is Rheem.
And Rheem doesn't post any service manuals, like the other two big manufacturers, AO Smith-American, and Bradford White.

Copy following link for troubleshoot by gas control valve.

Scroll up and find pressure switch heading among links.

You can install gas control valve yourself.

Smell


the heat may be affecting the unit's paint. normally the oil used in manufacturing burns off the first time the unit is used. maybe the proximity of the element to the case is too close.

Loud humming


If this is an electric resistance heater then there is no power supply or transformer. I had a baseboard heater that would hum loudly and I found there's a wire that runs along the bottom to connect the far end of the heat element to the electrical wiring at the supply end. This wire becomes magnetized from the current flowing through it and vibrates in the channel it runs through. I was able to open this channel and squirt a bit of silicone caulk in to keep the wire from vibrating and the hum is gone.
