Where and how do I register my reliance hot water heater


Save receipt for warranty purpose.
Without receipt, the warranty is based on date of manufacture which can be several months, or 1-2-3 years before actual installation.
With reliance, first two digits of serial number are date of manufacture. Second two digits are week of the year.
Registration at following link using serial number located on label on side of tank:

Where are the heating elements on an 80 gallon electric water heater? Model number : E 2 F8 0 H D 0 4 5 V


I don't know that model number.
Tank-type water heater elements are located behind panels on side of tank.

Open following link to help troubleshoot electric water heater problems:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-water-heater.html

The water heater label also shows element wattage, brand, voltage, serial number, and type of operation.
For example 5500W elements, non-simultaneous, 240V are typical ratings found on water heater.
5500 Watt would be replacement element size.
Non-simultaneous would indicate that both upper and lower element are not turned ON at same time.
240Volt is typical voltage for water heaters.
Serial number carries date-of-manufacture, based on brand.

Is my water heater still under warranty leaking water on top of heater and out from bottom and from plate


1) If water heater is leaking, I suggest you protect yourself first.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Emergency-steps-for-leaking-water-heater.html

2) You have to do some work to find out if tank is under warranty.
-Contact manufacturer: http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-manufacturers.html
-Contact installer: If plumber installed heater, then installer backs warranty for some manufacturers. If you installed heater, then warranty is less or void
-Look at paperwork and manual that came with water heater and read about warranty coverage
-Look at markings on tank to see if tank is 6 year, 15 year etc
-Warranty is based on date of manufacture: To find date of water heater, look at serial number located on label on side of tank:
Open link below for serial number decoder by manufacturer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/WaterHeaterSerialNumberDecoder.pdf

3) If tank is older than 6 years, and tank label shows this is a 6-year tank, then tank is no longer under warranty.
If you have a lifetime tank, then warranty is in effect, so contact manufacturer.

Open following link to see troubleshoot checklist for leaking water heater:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Leaking-water-heater.html

Other things to consider:
-If tank rusted out after a few years and installer did not install a jumper wire between hot and cold pipes, then tank warranty will probably not cover tank.
-If tank rusted out and you have water softener, and did not inspect anode rod or maintain water heater, then you did not read manual or maintain heater, and warranty might not cover problem.
-I suggest you read water heater manual cover to cover so water heater will not start leaking.

Where do I find the serial number for a Rheem Stellar gas storage hot water unit


Serial number should be on label on side of tank.

First 4 digits of serial number are date of manufacture: for example 0604 is June 2004
Take photo of label for easy reading and for your records

How do i determine the manufacture date for a h w heater, serial # GE0801269835 - model # GE 20P6A Thank you Mark Stambach City of Auburn Maine Plumbing Inspector


GE uses MMYY as the first four digits of their serial numbers. That unit was manufactured in August 2001.

FYI, a nice little page on decoding water heater manufacture can be found here.

Pvs50- will not ignite the gas


Some of these units can not be reset and you have to replace the water heater. You will need to contact Rheem with your model number to find out what you can do for your unit. Here is the information you will need when you call them. They have an 800 number available for you.

1. Should you have any questions about your new water heater, or if it requires
adjustment, repair, or routine maintenance, it is suggested that you first contact
your installer, plumbing contractor or previously agreed upon service agency. In
the event the firm has moved, or is unavailable, refer to the telephone directory,
commercial listings or local utility for qualified service assistance.
2. Should your problem not be solved to your complete satisfaction, you should
then contact the Manufacturer’s National Service Department at the following
address:
2600 Gunter Park Drive East
Montgomery, Alabama 36109-1413
Phone: 1-800-432-8373.
When contacting the manufacturer, the following information will be requested:
a. Model and serial number of the water heater as shown on the rating plate attached
to the jacket of the heater.
b. Address where the water heater is located and physical location.
c. Name and address of installer and any service agency who performed service on
the water heater.
d. Date of original installation and dates any service work was performed.
e. Details of the problems as you can best describe them.
f. List of people, with dates, who have been contacted regarding your problem.
