Question about Rheem 50 Gallon FVR NATGAS Water Heater 6YR 22V50F1
I have this heater since 2000 and four months ago was leaking for the first time. A friend of mine told me to run the water through a hose and drain the system. I did and a few days after it was ok. About two days ago the heater started to leak again. The water is coming from the top cover wher the wires are. I will be glad if you can help me to solve this problem. If I have to buy a new one you probably will give me the name of product/brand.
I have the same problem, its a Rheem PowerVent M/N 21VP75E-1P and the water is comming from the top cover. There is no water leaking from any fittings, the water is comming under the top cover between the cover and the sides of the unit. Why would it be comming from that area and can anything be done to repair the problem?
