My Rheem water heater is giving a ECO failure, How can I fix this?


Question posted under Rheem water heater.
Model number and gas valve are unknown. Add a comment.

Following information applies to typical tank-type gas water heater, and does not apply to tankless water heaters, boilers, indirect heaters, solar water heaters, etc or for electric water heater.

Electric water heater ECO is located on upper thermostat.
Open top cover and ECO can be reset by pushing in red reset button,
Or ECO can be replaced by replacing thermostat. Add a comment.

Open following link to see typical tank-type gas water heater ECOs:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Intellivent-ECO-900.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Typical-gas-valve-500.jpg

The ECO will trip at 180-200 degrees F.
This happens when the thermostat fails, then the burner stays on, and the water will continue heating.

With most water heaters, the ECO is one-time use device and the gas control valve is replaced.
Some water heaters have resettable ECO, but the overheating problem has to be solved.
Each water heater is different.
Contact Rheem or read manual for correct procedure.

If you have intellivent gas control valve, open following links for typical service manual:

Not heating up water, has power to it and have temp. set at about 135 deg. is there a reset button on it could not find it.


Water heater is not identified.
1) Add a comment with model, brand and energy-type for possible help.

2) Electric tank-type water heater has ECO reset button located on upper thermostat under the top cover.
See images:

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html

3) Gas tank-type ECO varies by brand and model of water heater, and specific identification of gas valve is needed before listing the possible things to look for.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-adjust-temperature-on-water-heater.html#intelli

4) Tankless water heater. I suggest calling manufacturer before tearing water heater off wall and throwing away.

Automatic restart is not working. Seems to keep saying eco problem...I thinl...the code is four flashes followed by two flashes.


Gas control valve is not identified, so error code is not known.
ECO means energy cut off.
Energy cut off happens when gas control valve thermostat has gone bad, or when gas control senses runaway heating inside combustion chamber.
Newer heaters have resettable ECO for combustion overheat. This reset is typically located on combustion chamber door and is round and has two wires that connect back to gas control. Generally you have to clean combustion chamber and tubes and catch up on maintenance, then reset ECO, then fire up heater again to see if problem is resolved.

http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Typical-gas-valve-500.jpg

Newer heater does not have reset for bad thermostat, and in that case you replace gas control valve thermostat.
Older heater does not have reset, and combustion chamber and parts are cleaned, and gas control valve thermostat is replaced.
Your manual is best place to start troubleshoot.

Limited hot water from 62 gal ge model D03666 looking for type and how to replace heating elements


Open following links to get started.
If water heater has NO hot water, then best suspect is ECO reset button tripped on upper thermostat. Open upper cover and push in red reset button. If reset keeps tripping, I usually replace both upper and lower thermostat.

If water heater has some hot water, then upper element is good so test lower element.

I would like to know location of reset button on hot water heater


If you have tank-type electric water heater, ECO reset is located on upper thermostat which is behind panel on side of water heater.
Be sure to put insulation back in place when finished so thermostat not exposed to cool air that will cause temperature misread.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Clean-sediment-out-of-water-heater.html

If you have gas water heater, call service technician, and/or read manual.
ECO reset requires gas control valve replacement in many cases.
FV lockout requires replacement parts.
Some tanks have resettable thermal switch located behind gas door panel.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-gas-water-heater.html

If you have tankless, call service technician, and/or read manual.

The reset button has popped more then once.


You have electric water heater.
Electric water heaters are fully repairable by homeowner.

Reliance is AO Smith company
http://www.aosmith.com/OperatingUnits/Detail.aspx?id=138&ekmensel=c580fa7b_12_0_138_3
http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/prod/elec.html

Age of Reliance water heater is shown on serial number located on side of tank:
first digit is letter. Next two digits are numbers: for example C06 means 2006.
Serial number also shows model number & wattage of elements in case you need new element from hardware store.

ECO reset button trips when upper thermostat senses temperatures higher than 150 to 180 degrees.
When ECO energy cut off trips, it turns off power at the reset button, so the tank does not continue overheating.
Tripping reset button says tank is receiving electricity, so we can eliminate that suspect.

There are 4 reasons why ECO will trip.
1) Bad upper or lower thermostat: solution replace both thermostats for about 25$. Steps shown in link below.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html
2) Loose wire or shorted wire at or near upper thermostat: Open covers on water heater and inspect parts for signs of high heat and burning.
3) Bad element shorted to ground in center of element: Solution test elements and replace defective element.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-element.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-water-heater-element.html
4) Factory-installed insulation and cover has been removed from tank: thermostat exposed to cooler temperatures, and misreads tank temperature, and then elements keep heating water.

If you want to test all the parts before replacing anything:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-water-heater.html


Thermostats are generic, and each functions same way and each can replace the other.
Same is true for both upper and lower thermostats

The red button keeps poping causing the hot water heater to shut off. I have to constantly reset it.


The red reset button or ECO or energy cut off turns off power to electric water heater.
The ECO responds to temperatures in excess of 150 degrees F.

Preliminary work:
You can use thermometer to check water temperature immediately after ECO trips.
Compare water temperature against the thermostat setting.

There are 4 things that can cause ECO to trip:
1) Bad thermostat is sticking and letting element continue heating water, or ECO is reading incorrect temperature.
2) Factory installed insulation and cover missing from tank, and thermostat is exposed to cooler air and misreads tank temperature.
3) Element shorted to ground in center of element. This completes 120V circuit to ground which will cause element to continuously heat the water.
4) Loose wire near ECO causing high-heat electrical event.

Solution:
Check for missing insulation.
Check screw terminals for signs of high heat and burning >> tighten screws.
Replace both thermostats using detailed instructions given on link below.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html

If the problem continues after replacing thermostats, more troubleshooting is needed:
