SOURCE: takes a long time to heat water

If you are using a 3/8" copper line for your gas, get it replaced ASAP. It will fail. 1/2" Black Iron is required with natural gas. 50 gallons is a lot of water to heat. Look on the heater label for the recovery rate.

it could also be the dip tube. this is a tube that is installed at the time the unit is made.it is a plastic tube that is on the cold intake side of the hot water heater.it may have fallen inside the unit or may not be in the unit at all check to see if there is a plastic tube this will help the heater stay hotter for a longer period of time. good luck with your project.

SOURCE: Pilot will not relight properly

Hi,
The thermocouple needs to be replaced. That is what keeps the pilot light lit. The thermocouple is the little metal probe that sticks up into the pilot flame. Very easy to replace.

Just re[placed the upper and lower element on our hot water heater. That was three hours ago. the water is still cold.


Push in reset button located on upper thermostat.
Push circuit breaker fully off and then fully on.
Make sure tank is filled with water before turning power ON or elements will burn out

Which one is compatable water heater to Rheemglas fury Model#41V50?


You have 6-year 50 gallon gas water heater:
42V50 would be the newer model number. They make tall and short models.
http://www.rheem.com/product.aspx?id=CC643E03-4C15-4775-B139-E504A95651F7

All brands of water heater are good.
So any 50 gallon gas water heater from local box store or hardware is good product.
Tanks with longer warranty last longer. So 9-year and 12-year water heater will last longer, unless you have very hard water or odor in water and need to change frequently.
I recommend avoiding water heaters with electronic controls since they are not protected from power surge and can cost more to repair.
