Simply sound like you dont have 230v to the water heater or the hi-limit is tripped on the upper thermostat.Did you fill the heater before powering it up? If not it will burn out the elements. hope this helps..

I have a Rheem model 71-308. It only has a lower access panel. How do I access the upper heating element?


If your heater only has one access panel, then it only has one element. These are mostly in the 30 gal. electric models.

Do I need to use the heat trap nipples on my new Rheem electric hotwater heater, I am pressed for space Thanks


Rheem residential electric water heaters appear on following page:
http://www.rheem.com/products/tank_water_heaters/electric_water_heaters/

New water heaters are made with heat trap nipples pre-installed so the product meets industry energy standards.
Sample Rheem manual says: 'All models equipped with heat traps.'

RHEEM 40 GAL ELEC TALL Water Heater 6YR SC 82VH402: my rheem 81sv40d water heater quit heating water. ...


I have the same problem about every 3-4 months. Mine is also about 10 or 11. It is usually the sediment at the bottom that causes this. Once the plumber flushes it, it works again. My problem is that I dont know how he did it and the vavle is at the floor level. I am never home when it is repaired. Regular maintenance (flushing) is how you avoid this from reoccurring. That is, if that is the cause of your issue.

I have 240 volts at thermostat and conection on the tank but nothing at the bottom element. no hot water either


Thermostat may be bad and not suppling power to lower thermostat and element.

Sounds like Thermostat not working properly if no power there..

Do you have power to top element and power going into top of bottom thermostat if it has one.

Water heater sounds like its boiling and the water is cloudy and very hot


make sure the thermostat is pushed up tight to the tank and there is nothing between them. If all this is good replace the upper thermostat, make sure the new one is set between 110 and130 degrees. Make sure the temp. and pressure valve is working and not blocked up.
