The heating element is not powering on; either it is open and needs to be replaced or the thermostatic mechanism that feeds power to the element is not functioning.

Have a reliance electric water heater model 606; have no hot water. I am having a problem finding the reset switch.


If it was working and recently stopped working, the heating element that heats the water probably went bad, no longer functioning. Check to make sure that there is or is not a reset button, and if there is, press and reset the heater. It's not difficult to remove the old heater element and replace it, but make sure the circuit breaker power to the water heater is off when you remove it. Take it to a water heating supply store, or large hardware store with the Brand and model number of your water heater (Reliance RELIANCE ELECTRIC WATER HEATER,model 606 ) to buy another one.

Water not heating wha to do


First thing is to look at label on side of unit.
This will show what brand, type and model water heater you have.
Then repost question with that information so expert can access correct information.
Also include if this is a new water heater, or old water heater that stopped working, and approximate age of unit since models change very quickly today.

Hot water heater


Product type and brand and model number are on label on side of unit. Describe approximate age of heater, and include if this is new installation or if unit worked before and stopped working.

21vp50-1 rheem water heater, the ignitor is not working


1) Rheem does not show that exact model number, since they list current products only.
http://www.rheem.com/products/tank_water_heaters/gas_water_heaters

2) Rheem serial number shows year of manufacture on second 2 digits. So C06 was made in 2006.
Today's manual might not have troubleshoot steps that match older product.

3) 21vp50 is 50 gallon power vent water heater.
Open following link to identify product.
New models have Honeywell electronic gas valve with LCD flashing error codes.
http://www.rheem.com/product.aspx?id=C24E3F52-A6A4-4BC7-AF5B-0DF23A7A0263
http://waterheatertimer.org/gas-water-heater-timers.html#Rheem

4) Sample manual for newer power vent models shows error codes and troubleshoot steps:
http://globalimageserver.com/fetchDocument.aspx?id=a92c7d0e-8a95-48ba-8810-cd714f33d47a

5) Earlier Fixya answer suggests where to buy ignitor for 21vp50:
PART #HSI51409A
http://www.fixya.com/support/t3641891-rheem_21vp50_1_igniter_stopped

6) Your manual should show troubleshoot steps and expanded parts list.
Always save manuals like gold, and save searching later for a manual at Fixya.
If we can't find the manual, then our answers are limited to suggestions and guesses, since we're not on-site and can't perform troubleshoot steps for you.

7) Post your question on professional water heater forum
http://www.thetankatwaterheaterrescue.com/forums/forum3/

8) Call Rheem and they can possibly suggest which local service technician will work on that model:
2600 Gunter Park Drive East
Montgomery, Alabama 36109-1413
Phone: 1-800-432-8373.

9) Call a local plumber.

10) Install inexpensive home-center brand gas water heater yourself:

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on water heater or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

My heater is not getting hot i can not tell if their is a pilot light or a reset button i don know what to do with the heater it is very different how can i heat my water heater


Reliance makes gas and electric water heaters.
http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/

Best way to start is to look at label on side of tank.
Label has serial number, model number, plus it will say if heater is gas or electric.
Reliance water heater age is shown in serial number: first digit is letter, second two digits are numbers: for example numbers 02 would be the year 2002.
If water heater is 8-12 years old, it might be time to consider new tank.

Gas water heater has 3 inch metal flue pipe coming out of top of tank.
Gas pilot is probably off.
Relight pilot light: Most gas water heaters today have instructions on side of tank just above gas valve that say how to relight pilot light. Instructions vary by model.
If you have gas water heater that is older, it might be easier to call a plumber.

Electric water heater has panels on front.
Open top panel and push in red reset button.
If you have electric water heater of any age, you can usually fix it yourself same day:

Water heater leaking


Yes, you will need a new heater. The inner tank has rusted thru and it is way cheeper to replace the whole water heater than trying to fix the old one.

ECO Failure


make sure your flue is clear,, and no suit is in the burner, also there are wires going to the ignitor make sure they are not touching after time for what ever reason they need to be seperated because they short out but doesn't cause any problem other then the unit not lighting
