I have a Rheem 81SV-40D water heater, water is hotter in the morning and only warm at night. I don't see a time or anything. Can you please help me to figure out what's wrong? thanks


Dear Chu,
I think I am hearing you say the water is hotter if the water heater has sat all night without the usage of any hot water, and otherwise, it is not hot.
I should suspect one of your heating elements is not good any more.
Look and see if there are 2 removable covers on the side of the water heater, an upper and a lower.
Take a test instrument and, with the water heater unhooked from the power source, see if you have one element that shows no continuity with an ohm meter /resistance test.
That element can be replaced, sometimes you must drain the water heater water to do so.
God bless your efforts.

Heat will not shut down, continues to get hotter


there might be a broken hot water pipe somewhere and so that might be causing the heater to stay on as its not getting to temperature.

How do I just the water heater to make the water hotter


To make the water hotter, u may constrict the water flow that goes through the tap, shower etc. With the water flows slowly, the heater has more time to heat the water in it and then the water will be hotter although it won't be boiling hot(100 degrees Celcius) because the water heater is not designated to heat water up to that temperature

If water is exceptionally hot, the TP will release water.
Is water hotter than normal?
Or TP will release water when TP has gone bad.
Replace TP and see what happens.

Low amount of hot water


You say a very new water heater. You won't get 40 gallons of hot water from a 40 gallon water heater because the continuing influx of cold water will cool your hot water down. However, it appears that your bottom water heater element needs replacing. If the top element is bad, you'll get no hot water. If your bottom element is bad, you'll get "some" hot water. Try replacing the bottom element. DON'T FORGET to turn off the electricity AND water first (closeby towels are also handy)!
