SOURCE: dripping from drain spout

If you are refering to the "Dripping coming from the preasure tempature valve,Then just turn off the valve where the water goes into the heater and open the P/T valve with a bucket below it draining only emought water to get below the level where it reaches.     Normally the drain valves are plastic with a Male hosebib attached.  Attach a  garden hose to the rain and run it out to a point lower that the vaslve in order for gravity to drain the tank.The valve opens counter clock wise. If the valve is stuck or does not drain,and you have a foor drain handy,remove the whole valve and replace it with a boiler drain valve.  If The tank is located below the drain level then you will have to either pump or carry the drain water to the higher level.     Replace the P/T valve  and reinstall the associated associated piping. I would use tefelon tape on the P/T pipe theads.    You may have to open a hot water faucet in order for the air to replace the water in the tank ,in order to drain.

I need a serial number for the flame sensor. I cannot locate handboodk


-Generally you have to call manufacturer with model and serial number.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-manufacturers.html

-However, Rheem, AO Smith, and Bradford White manufacture most water heaters, and each has parts resources.

-AO and Bradford post their resources under manuals.
http://bradfordwhite.com/documentation
http://www.hotwater.com/resources/product-literature/

-While Rheem hides their parts lists on obscure link, hoping that you will call for a service recommendation.
Here is 2011 parts manual for Rheem

How Do I restart the rheem 81v30d


http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-light-gas-water-heater.html

Rheem does not post service manuals.
One reason is that water heaters have changed rapidly last few years, and same model might have different features because Rheem experiments to see which products work after they are sold.

Calls to Rheem for DIY help are largely useless since they want you to call local installer or technician... who will sell you a new heater for more money.
Rheem wants to end DIY repairs since doing it yourself saves you money... which means Rheem, and Rheem-loyal service companies make less money.

What is the part # for a Rheem 308 71 model heating element needed?


Any generic element will work.
Match wattage with current element.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-water-heater-element.html

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

Rheem wants folks to buy parts from them... so Rheem tries to convince people that Rheem electric water heaters require special parts.
This is not true... ordinary generic parts will function fine on Rheem.

How can I find the manual to a rheem 21vp50-1 gas water heater? It does not seem available.


For troubleshoot and installation:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

Rheem manuals are generic, and contain no service information, or other useful information that would be unavailable from downloading current gas water heater manual.
One site posts talks about 21vp50 but posts generic American water heater manual instead of Rheem
http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/f918341a-6e8e-41b4-85be-5cde688317b9.pdf
Go to Rheem website, click on power vent, then click tab for Specs/Docs ... and click link for manual and then call Rheem and ask why they do not post service bulletins that match the required maintenance shown in product manual:

Bought a rheem rete 13 off ebay


Question posted under Rheem tankless water heater:

Call Rheem at 800 432 8373
They will need serial number located on label on side of unit.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

Usually I recommend that people tear out their tankless water heater and sell it on ebay, and then install tank-type heater from different manufacturer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

I would be very reluctant to connect used gas appliance without a product manual, and service manual.

Can I replace the igniter on my rheem water heater RHLP


1) Rheem does not post service manuals for their brands of tankless, or tank-type water heater:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html
Replace the thing:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html#install

2) Probably you can call Rheem and give model and serial number and they will send part.
However, based on responses at fixya, Rheem most likely will not send instructions.
Rheem does not want customers repairing gas appliances.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Exploded-house3.jpg

3) Go to Bosch website, and track down their service bulletins for possible assistance

Rheem 300170 HWS service manual


1) Rheem does not post service manuals.
Call Rheem and ask why, since the other big manufacturers, AO Smith and Bradford White do post service manuals.

2) You need new propane gas control valve, and matching combustion parts to fit existing tank.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-Water-Heater-parts-catalog.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/IMG_1826-LP-burner-450.jpg

3) Rheem does not recommend changing gas type, especially from natural gas to LPG.
LPG is higher pressure, and burns much hotter and requires cast iron burner, unlike the lighter-weight metal used for Natural gas burner.
The manifold tube and thermocouple must match the gas control valve, and gas-type and have correct thread for propane.
The combustion chamber and heat transfer surface can also be heavier metal for propane heaters.

Where is the combustion shutoff system on a Rheem 30 gal moble home hot water heater


Disproportionate number of water heater problems are Rheem-related, yet Rheem is just 1 of 3 major water heater manufacturers.

If you have Rheem tank-type gas water heater, and the combustion shut off has tripped the FV system, then there is a broken glass vial located under the burner.
Rheem does not post service manuals, and they may or may not send the glass vial for replacement. Depending on model which appears on label on side of tank. Year of manufacture are 3rd and 4th digits in serial number.
And they may want you to contact a qualified service technician (plumber)
You will have to replace glass vial, and clean the arrestor screen and clean the combustion parts, check gas pressure, and check venting.
Other companies post service manuals and do not rely on the glass vial.
