I believe I had the same problem with my water heater about 15 years ago. It started with a small leak, then the tank broke flooding the room. I think it would be be best to replace the unit. Water heaters tipically have a 8-10 year life.

Need conversion of lp to propane on a Bradford 50 gallon hot water.......


1) Do you mean NG natural gas to propane?

2) Most companies do not support gas-type conversion, especially with modern FVIR-compliant heaters. New burner, gas control are required at minimum.

3) Contact Bradford White and include model number, serial number that appear on label on side of unit.

We have a Reliance 501 (40 gallon) natural gas water heater Model 5 40 NORT0 Serial F94799798. Does it have a glass liner?


Your Reliance serial number shows your water heater was made in July 1994.

Except for the Marathon water heaters, and copper-tank water heaters, all tank-type water heaters are made of steel. That steel has an enamel coating which people call a glass liner.

So in that sense, there is a glass liner.
See a photo of the liner:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Enamel-coated-steel-290.jpg

Also inside the tank is an anode rode.
The anode is made to protect the steel tank.
Anode is made from lower noble metal than steel, so water reacts with the lower noble metal first.
The water eats away the anode rod instead of rusting the tank.
Once the anode rod is gone, the water begins rusting the tank.
The enamel coating does not protect the steel from rusting.
The tank rusts away and begins to leak.

Hot water heater is natural gas type gas is staying on all the time burning even when water is hot it continues to burn. Not hot water tank is over 10 years old should I try to repair or just replace???


The thermostat is what is out of calibration...this is built into the gas valve. Unfortunately the part cost almost what a new tank does. My opinion is to replace.....today gas valve....another 8 years the tank...

WHAT SIZE HOLE IN JET ON HOT WATER HEATER TO CHANGE FROM NATURAL GAS TO LP GAS


That doesnt work with these units they are manufactured gas specific. The manifold plate would need to be changed as well as notification to Noritz to have a new serial # issued. PC board reprogram required, etc. Buy a natural gas or LP model.
