Where can I get a Rheem water heater repair manual


I would first look at the owners manual and or the schematics. You can probably find it on line if you have the model and serial number. I would then call a Rheem dealer or contact the company to see what that error code is. Personally I wouldn't try to fix it myself because it's gas and if you screw up you could blow youself up or burn the house down. That's why I buy electric water heaters and a water softener. I may pay a little more in electric but with the softner to remove the lime, I never have to change an element, only add salt about every 3 months.

To find model number on thermostat, remove from wall.
Model number appears on back.
Don't forget to replace battery while you have back exposed.

Where can I get the new sensor unit for Whirlpool water heater (N40S61-403)?


1) Call whirlpool
1-877-817-6750
Need model and serial number located on label on side of tank

2) Copy following links for troubleshoot and repair resources, including service manual by type of gas control valve.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermocouple.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

3) Get parts sheet from manual that arrived with new product.

4) Otherwise, neither Whitlpool or Craftmaster.has up-to-date product manual, parts sheet, or service manual, rendering their sites near useless for many owners.
Whirlpool site has 'troubleshoot and repair' section, but this is NO help for serious DIY repair.

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

Google that model number in following format: Honeywell xxxxx4 .pdf
That will give you on-line pdf manual that is downloadable and searchable.
Then re-post question with exact model number and include what you are operating so expert can access and read manual alongside you.

If you have some other device, then post the brand and model number, and include what voltage, and what you are controlling for best possible solution.

No hot water


Before calling service technician, open following link for Bosch troubleshooting resources including Bosch contact number and possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html

Tankless water heaters require yearly maintenance to check gas pressure, inspect and clean burner and combustion parts, inspect vent and vent drain, clean air filter, check water flow, de-lime the heat exchanger etc.
This maintenance can stop ordinary problems from occurring, and can be done by the homeowner by reading Bosch service manuals for specific model number.
The continual maintenance, and cost of repairs and parts, and cost of professional service are more expensive than expected $1-8 monthly energy savings from owning tankless.

Fix most tankless problems yourself, same day, for about $350.

Our tankless water heat will not heat the water-it won't ignite


Question posted under Boasch tankless. Model number not known.
Before calling service technician, open following link for Bosch troubleshooting resources, including phone and contact for Bosch, error codes, and possible manual, plus hours of reading and research:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html

As you know from reading manual, tankless water heaters require yearly maintenance by trained service technician, or by homeowner. This action would check gas and pressure, venting draft, condensation drain, burner and combustion parts, igniter and-or pilot light, electrical connections, air intake and general condition of plumbing.
Problem you describe does not include error code.
Open following link for possible help with general plumbing problem:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/No-Error-Code.pdf

Add a comment with model number that appears on side of unit, and I can directly locate possible service bulletins and further troubleshoot resources available at Bosch for possible do-it-yourself diagnosis and repair.

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

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on water heater or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

2 green flashes. hot water is blazing hot set at 120 degrees.have the energy smart unit model#ee2h50rd045v . what is wrong?


2 green flashes is 'High Water Temp.'
http://waterheatertimer.org/Whirlpool-Energy-Smart-electric.html

Typical energy smart manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Whirlpool-energy-smart-electric-manual.pdf

3 flashes is Temperature Sensor failure.
4 flashes is Upper element
5 flashes is Lower element

Troubleshoot section says:
1) Make sure access doors and insulation are installed.
2) Check elements for resistance of 5-25 ohms (if element has a short in center of element, it might not trip breaker)
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-element.html
3) replace element and reset control system.
Buy ordinary 4500 Watt element from hardware store.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-water-heater-element.html

4) I also suspect the self-diagnostic control box.
Manual says: Repair parts may be ordered through your plumber,
local distributor, home improvement center, or by calling
1-877-817-6750.
You need serial number, product number and model number from label on side of tank.
