I seem to have a leak at the rim of my water heater where the screws attach to the cover, can this be fixed or do I need to replace it?


Water heaters are sealed tanks. The only places where water would normally be able to leak would be:
  1. Water inlet
  2. Water Outlet
  3. Heating elements
  4. pressure release valve
  5. drain valve
Leaking at the base is indicative of a rusted-out tank. But before you trash the old one, secure power and remove the side covers where the heating elements are installed to verify they are not leaking. If they are OK, the unit probably needs replacing. And even more likely if the unit is more than 10-12 years old. Don't delay on this as leaks from rusty tanks can blow out and cause serious water damage,

Does it only leak when making coffee? There are 2 hoses, one that supplies cool water to heating element in base the other one that supplies the heated water from heating element to top of coffee grounds. Typically over time this 2nd hose degrades at heating element connection and begins to leak

The bottom heating element keeps blowing breaker and bottom of heater is filling up with water around heating element


If there is enough water around element and lower thermostat, it's going to blow the breaker. If you don't have leaks at the pipes above, it's probably time to replace the heater. If the leak can be found and repaired, there may be hope for the heater but, if it is leaking past thermostat, you probably have a crack in the threads. Make sure, if your going to work with the wiring of the unit, that it is turned off and, if it is on, make sure you're careful and not standing in water. You could quite possibly have a cracke or broken tank.

After connecting a drain line to the pressure relief valve of my MR85245 water heater, I now have water leaking badly out of the heating element door.


Turn off the electricity.
Turn off the water valve going into tank.
Open a bathtub spout to let hot water pressure off the tank.
Check top of tank for any leaks.
Open the top access panel and see if element is leaking.
Open bottom access panel and see if lower element is leaking.
The reduced pressure on the tank will slow the leak.

If element is the problem, you can squeak by for a while by turning on the hot water heater only when you need hot water.
Order the 'Marathon MR85245 replacement element' online
http://www.gpconservation.com/rheem/marathon-sp213670-titanium-4500w-lower-element
These elements may be available locally, but they are not the same as 'ordinary' tank-type electric heater elements that you buy at the hardware store.
Buy more than 1 element because the Marathon elements have problems.
One of the reported problems with marathon elements is the high price of stainless steel replacement elements.
Drain tank.
Replace element.

Water leaks out between coffee brew basket and carafe.


If you are noticing the water that is leaking at the base, I was having the same problem. If you can specifically see that the leak is coming from between the basket and carafe - then you may have a different problem. My problem appears to be that the heating element is shot - it leaks when you start the brewing cycle. I found this out by taking off the bottom and raising up the coffee maker and puting it on a mirror to view what was going on. As soon as the brewing starts and the system is under pressure, water starts forming on the metal tubing part of the heating element. I suppose it's possible that water is leaking down from the tubes, but it looks like it is getting forced out of the metal, so there must be small holes, caused by corrosion. I will check further but I can't find a replacement heating element online so I may have to purchase a new coffee maker.

I would say then the heating element has a resistive short to ground. The 1.98m Ohm reading is high, but not high enough -- should be infinite. I would say replace heating element... And, when you install new one, make sure there is no water leaking thru heating element cavity and ensure area around cavity is clean & "in order".

Water level below heating element and element does not appear to heat


Make sure the drain hose high loop is installed properly, normally you have this in the sink cabinet high up. Otherwise the water inside the machine may drain "by itself", leaking through the inactive drain pump during the wash cycle and cause this and other troubles.
