Manual for rt25 space heater


If you are looking for the manual to the water heater it should have been included. If you have just moved into a new house with a heater already installed, see if there are previous owner documents. If that doesn't do, the heater should have a tag with a number on it. That is the manufacturer, they should be able to provide a new manual.

Need manual for model # GE50M06AAG


GE is a Rheem-made product:
Any generic electric water heater manual will work for this heater since it uses same standard wiring, generic parts, and materials used for years to make electric water heaters. Nothing special. Except do not expect many specifics from any Rheem manual pertaining to insulation thickness or comprehensive troubleshooting.

Copy following link. Click on tab for specs and docs:

If you have specific question about water heater troubleshoot or maintenance, copy following links for professional diy resources:

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:

How to light water heater 660


Instructions for lighting Reliance 660 are located on the side of water heater just above the gas control valve.
If you are having other problems, read your product manual, or go to reliance for copy of manual, and read troubleshoot section:
http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/lit/om.html

Unfortunately Rheem-Reliance does not post service manuals for their product. However other companies do post service manuals that might be similar to your water heater

Copy following link for troubleshoot service manual by type of gas control valve:

Need a manual for a maytag electric water heater. model # HE2950S


More information is needed about this heater.

The label located on side of tank should show manufacturer.

Maytag does not manufacture water heaters.
Maytag is a brand name used to market water heaters made by other companies.
Maytag offers a phone number for water heaters:1-866-362-9898

Other resources:
-If the water heater has electronic control box on top, then following American Water Heater Company manual might be suitable:
http://www.americanwaterheater.com/support/manuals/energysmart.pdf

-Electric water heater instruction manuals can be found on following link:
Each is basically the same, unless there is electronic control box.
http://www.americanwaterheater.com/support/manuals.aspx

-If you have ordinary two-element 240volt water heater and are having problems, or want information on maintaining water heater, then following link is useful:

Pilot will not stay light but will turn on and work properly


When having a problem with pilot and burner, the place to start is troubleshoot section in your manual.
Whirlpool is probably made by Craftmaster which I believe is a Rheem company, and Rheem makes a number of different models.
Some models have specific manuals and others have generic manuals.
Open Rheem water heater page and click on water that matches your water heater. On page that opens, click on tab that says 'specs' and then download manual.
http://www.rheem.com/Products/tank_water_heaters/gas_water_heaters

If none of those water heaters look like yours, open following link to help identify company website and download manual. Craftmaster website does not have instruction manuals.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-manufacturers.html

All gas water heaters require periodic maintenance.
Some require yearly maintenance.
The burner parts require cleaning.

Got storage heating and hot water tank .lights on cotroller to heat water but not heating water


1) You report that your tank-type electric water heater has lights on the controller.
Please look at label on side of tank to get brand and type of water heater.
Add a comment with all information you have, including description of product.
This will let expert possibly find a manual, and read manual alongside you to assist as you fix water heater yourself.
Keep in mind that expert cannot see your water heater, and that many things cause water heaters to malfunction, and that troubleshoot section of product manual is good place to start.

2) Search manufacturer's website for product manual so you can fix water heater yourself.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-manufacturers.html

3) If you have electric water heater and don't want to add a comment with identifying information, then look at following page for do-it-yourself troubleshooting:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html

4) If you have energy smart water heater, you can access information and manual at following link, and possibly fix water heater yourself:
Product manual link shows on page, and gives phone number.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Whirlpool-Energy-Smart-electric.html

5) If you do not have tools or know-how to fix water heater yourself, then call a plumber.
Plumbers are expert at fixing water heaters.

6) Post question of professional water heater forum, to double check anything a plumber, friend, or fixya expert says:
http://www.thetankatwaterheaterrescue.com/forums/forum3/

7) Add a comment for more free help.
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.
