SOURCE: dripping from drain spout

If you are refering to the "Dripping coming from the preasure tempature valve,Then just turn off the valve where the water goes into the heater and open the P/T valve with a bucket below it draining only emought water to get below the level where it reaches.     Normally the drain valves are plastic with a Male hosebib attached.  Attach a  garden hose to the rain and run it out to a point lower that the vaslve in order for gravity to drain the tank.The valve opens counter clock wise. If the valve is stuck or does not drain,and you have a foor drain handy,remove the whole valve and replace it with a boiler drain valve.  If The tank is located below the drain level then you will have to either pump or carry the drain water to the higher level.     Replace the P/T valve  and reinstall the associated associated piping. I would use tefelon tape on the P/T pipe theads.    You may have to open a hot water faucet in order for the air to replace the water in the tank ,in order to drain.

SOURCE: Rheem water heater turns off by its self

Flashing code 76 is lost communication between the remote and the burner control assembly CCA (circuit card assembly). The CCA is still under warranty if purchased within the last 3 yrs. Contact Rheem customer service and have your Mod. and S/N available....explain to the agent you are recieving - flashing code 76...they'll walk you through the process.

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.

Rheem 71 30d


You should be able to control hot water temperature by adjusting the thermostats. Either or both may have failed, causing heating to increase to the maximum. The "spitting" is caused by boiling water. Likewise, the pressure relief valve is operating as it should resulting in the overflow you observe. You need to get your heater serviced immediately!!

Rheem water heater flashes seven times ,it is in lock out mode


You have Honeywell electronic gas control valve, and error code is 7 flashes.
Probably you have power vent model.
One manual from different company says: "Reset gas control using on-off button on front of control, replace flammable vapor sensor, replace gas control thermostat.
But with Rheem you also need specific steps: Remove gas burner and look for broken glass vial, and then blow out arrestor screen air intake using compressed air, clean burner parts, check for unobstructed venting, you will need new glass vial from Rheem depending on year and model number of water heater that appears on label on side of unit, or they may not have a repair kit for that model, and you might need a new gas control valve depending on model and how extensive problem was
You have Rheem water heater.http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-repair-Rheem-FVIR.html

Where is the combustion shutoff system on a Rheem 30 gal moble home hot water heater


Disproportionate number of water heater problems are Rheem-related, yet Rheem is just 1 of 3 major water heater manufacturers.

If you have Rheem tank-type gas water heater, and the combustion shut off has tripped the FV system, then there is a broken glass vial located under the burner.
Rheem does not post service manuals, and they may or may not send the glass vial for replacement. Depending on model which appears on label on side of tank. Year of manufacture are 3rd and 4th digits in serial number.
And they may want you to contact a qualified service technician (plumber)
You will have to replace glass vial, and clean the arrestor screen and clean the combustion parts, check gas pressure, and check venting.
Other companies post service manuals and do not rely on the glass vial.

Rheem warrior glass serial num r0296b08705 model


You need to first determine if the burners light or not.

As long as the unit wasn't run with a dry tank the unit should not have been affected by continuous water running, unless it got hot enough to damage the thermocoupler which is an easy replacement. That is the part that your pilot/ignitor warms so that the gas valve will open the gas line to the burners.

I need to locate the reset button on my Rheem 71-30s water heater but i can't find it.where is it?


1) Rheem 71-30 is 2-element electric water heater
Reset button is located behind upper panel located on side of tank.

2) Rheem no longer shows that exact model number so your tank is older.
To find age of water heater look at 2nd and 3rd digits of serial number, for example 06 is 2006

3) To download sample manual:
I recommend you read entire manual so it will save you money
http://www.rheem.com/product.aspx?id=91C402E4-D88A-4E32-BB5E-6D1A8D41FC37

4) This water heater is fully repairable by homeowner using generic parts from hardware store
To troubleshoot water heater: Requires $5 multimeter from Home center and about 45 minutes.
Repairs take from 40 minutes to 1 afternoon, depending on skill and problem.
Repairs cost $30-70

I have a rheem glas standard 30 gallon model # 81sv-30d water heater with upper and lower watages 3500. how do i know what size heating element i need?


Look on label on side of tank.
Wattage of tank will be element wattage. This is true if tank has one or two elements since both elements are never ON at same time.
Simply go to hardware store and buy 3500W element.
Take phone photo to store if needed for identification.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-water-heater-element.html
Wattage appears on end of each element.
