How to wire a rheem 40 gal electric hotwater heater with a yellow,blue, and Black wires


Jan 2013
1) Water heaters can be wired many different ways.
Copy following link For ordinary household 240Volt water heater, the heater is wired for non-simultaneous operation:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/WH-w-combined2-1000.jpg
Copy following link For other wiring diagrams, including off-peak, simultaneous, redundant, etc
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-water-heater-thermostats.html

2) Make sure water heater circuit breaker and wire size matches watt rating that shows on end of each element.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html

3) Non simultaneous means only 1 element is ON at a time.
So either upper element is ON, or lower element is ON, or both elements are OFF.
Both elements are never ON at same time.
So non-simultaneous water heater with two 4500 watt elements has total connected watt rating of 4500 watts. Because only 1 element can be ON at a time.
Use 30 amp breaker and 10 gauge wire.

Need to increase the recovery rate of Rheem 82SV30-2 elect water heater. Has 4500w upper and 3380w lower elements. Was told by County Health Dept that it was possible to wire both elements together for...


Basic information: Typical electric water heater operates in non-simultaneous fashion where either the upper element is ON, or the lower element is ON, or both elements are OFF, but both elements are never ON at same time.

Easiest way to increase recovery. If you have 10 gauge wire and 30 amp breaker, then install two 5500 watt elements. This will not work if you have smaller 12 gauge wire and 20 amp breaker.
Watt rating appears on side of each element.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-water-heater-element.html

Change wiring.
If you run two separate 10 gauge wires to water heater, with each wire on a separate 30 amp breaker, then you can 'wire both elements together' to operate in simultaneous fashion. The elements are each wired independently of each other, but they can both turn ON at same time, and this action avoids heating lag if you also install larger 5500 watt elements.
Simultaneous water heaters can be ordered from manufacturer, and this is common with 80 gallon models where tank must keep up with larger demand.

Copy following link for illustration showing how to rewire for simultaneous operation:

I put a new heating element in and I'm not sure about the wiring on the bottom

Your 2 red wires power the element whilst that orange wire feeds
the timer motor when that element ain't in use. You can't mix the 2 red ones up.

Oven element will not come on but broiler works .This is the top oven


There are three possible defects to conside. In order of likelihood given what you've described...

1) The bake element is defective. You can remove it and check it with an ohm meter. A good one would be roughly 20 to 40 ohms, a bad element has high (or very high) resistance.

2) The oven thermostat. It controls both the bake and broil elements, but has seperate control circuits (contacts) for each. The bake element is used most and most likely to fail. You *can* check for voltage while its operating, but if you aren't sure of what you're doing its an unnecessary danger. If you eliminate the element (#1 above) and the wiring (#3 below) then the thermostat is what you have to replace.

3) The wiring from the thermostat to the bake element could be defective. (I'm sorry, I don't know if your bake element has a socket or just wiring. It is possible for a bad socket to burn and pit the element's contacts and to have to replace both.). This is the least common cause, but if you test the bake element resistance at the thermostat, that includes the wiring, and if the element by itself is good, but not with the wiring then its the wiring. Since the broil element works, the wiring feeding power to the thermostat is good, and the only wiring to check was from the thermostat to the bake element.

Residential water heaters USUALLY follow same diagram unless water heater is wired for other purpose. Multiple diagrams on instructions show available options. Take photo of wiring before removing wires on any electrical device.
Upper element.
Black wire from top of heater connects to #1 top left screw.
Red wire from top connects to #3 top right screw.
Blue wire from upper element connects to #4 middle screw on right side
Red wire from lower element connects to #4 middle screw on right side
Yellow wire from upper element connects to #2 lower left screw
Black wire from lower thermostat connects to #4 lower right screw
Upper element: Yellow and Blue wires connect to either screw
Lower element: Red wire from top connects to either screw
Lower thermostat: Black wire from top connects to top screw
Short wire between lower thermostat and lower element

Re-connecting heating element wires


two screws on the element ... two wires ... in most cases. You probably have 220 volts, make sure it is off.

One of element of dual elements doesn't work.


Dual element has a common "return" wire but separate hot wires... Could be a burned element or a bad connection to the second element. REMOVE THE POWER before checking the element wires (for safety) .

A bad connection will be obvious. A bad element will not be obvious - but they are not very expensive.

Replace the element if the wiring looks good.

Bake Element


There should only be two wires that go to the element. It won't matter which wire goes on which terminal. Turn power off to unit before replacing the element. In some cases when the element burns out and breaks in have it will send a surge back to the oven control board and it will need to be replaced also. You will know once the element is replaced if it doesn't heat up.
