Need Instruction Manual for 1992 Reliance LP 40-gal. water heater

I have a Reliance (made by State Industries) water heater that was purchased and installed in 1992. It's a 40 gallon, LP propane unit. The model number is not legible. Does anyone have or know where I might find an instruction manual for this or similar Reliance unit made in same time period or in the same series? (Manual sent by company was not the right one -- it was too recent.) I'm willing to pay for copying/shipping. Thanks so much!

    Don't mean to be nosy but you're talking about a 17 year old unit, they usually last 5-8 years. What do you need to know - they're pretty generic.

Gas water heaters have not changed much over the last few decades. The manual that they sent you should suffice. What sort of a problem are you having?

I have a 640dors reliance capacity40 water won't stay hot long(electric)


remove the two covers one high and one low and set the temp higher. This time of year with colder water comming in the house the water heater has to work harder to raise the temp of the incomming water. In the summer the incommong water is much warmer. 40 gal is a small water heater and you will only get about 15 gal of hot water with the ice cold water entering the water heater as you use the hot water. You can get a bigger water heater. even better is to go tankless and a have never ending hot water and save money at the same time.

Model 640HORT Reliance 606 40 gal LPgas came to cabin, water cold, lit; ran for 4 hours, flame went out, burner won't come on.


It does sound like a weak pilot thermocouple. Change the thermocouple first. Make sure you have an adequate supply of propane serving the water heater. If it still works for a while then completely shuts down, you will need to replace the control valve. Call Reliance and see if the unit is still under warranty, you may be able to get free parts.
