DO NOT USE THIS HEATER UNTIL IT HAS BEEN CHECKED OUT BY A PROFESSIONAL!

Most all gas appliances can use propane or natural gas, but they ship from the factory with orifices for one or the other.

Propane is rated at 11 iwg, natural gas at 7 iwg (where iwg=inches water gauge. 27 iwg=1 psig) (it takes a different regulator spring to handle this small difference in pressure.

A propane orifice will be smaller than a natural gas orifice.

The store that you bought the water heater should know what they sold you, and know if they have a kit to convert the regulator and orifices.

Find your only getting Luke warm water @ your faucets??


.

This is a common fault with new to used installed waterheater.

It is call a diptube ,made of pvc in part description. It is located on cold inlet,top of waterheater.

Malfunction of dip tube is usually a fracture caused by age mostly,or faulty install when new and tube was exposed to high heat from welding .

This tube allows the cold water supply to flow into W/heater and exit at bottom where it is heated while pushing already heated water to hot side and to your faucet. If this tube is defective ei...cracked the cold will [leak] mix with the hot before reaching bottom to be heat..thus lukewarm water syndrome. Solution $8 part H/depot>remove coldside copper fittings and pull white pvc out,about 4feet long,less rotted area, install new 3/4 inch pvc dip tube with flange up.

My reliance electric hot water heater keeps shutting down. when I push the reset button it goes on and works for anywhere from 1 day to 5 weeks. Where do I look for a solution.


According to Reliance's trouble shooting guide, you may have faulty upper thermostat that is overheating, which is causing the high temp limit switch to open and shut it down. Pushing the reset switch is only a temporary solution until you find out what is causing it to shut down. Is it still under warranty? Call Reliance and find out. 1-800-365-4054

Restricted air inlet


Clear the area around the bottom of waterheater so as to allow air flow around mesh area built into base of water heater and or open unvented door passages involving waterheater. This mostly a safty issue which seldom occurs if not remedy quickly.
