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?

YOU ARE PROBABLY HEARING THE WATER PERK DUE TO CALCIUM AND LINE BUILD UP.. YOU CAN DESCALE WITH ACID BUT IT TAKES A CIRCULATION PUMP AND A LITTLE PLUMBING SKILL.

1) Shut the breaker off to it at the panel. 2) Hook a hose up to it (the bottom has a drain). 3) Close the valve to the water heater (on the cold water supply). 4) Open drain on the bottom of water heater. 5) Open the relief valve to allow air into the tank (it won't drain otherwise - think if you put your finger on one end of a straw - the liquid stays in until you let go). Why are you draining it by the way?

To change a gas hot water heater thermostat you will need to first buy a new gas valve for your hot water heater. The gas vaive and the thermostat are integrated into one unit.
To replace the thermostat on a gas hot water heater you must follow these procedures....
1. Turn off the incoming water and drain the water heater.
2. remove the pilot tube, the burner gas tube and the thermocouple from the gas valve. Turn off the gas line and remove from the gas valve.
3. get a pump pliers or a wrench in behind the gas valve and turn the whole assembly CCW to remove it from the tank.
4. After appliying pipe dope or tape to the new gas valve threads, turn the new gas valve into the tank by turning in a CW direction. Be careful not to damage the small wires to the ECO. They are the little red wires on the back. If you break them the assembly is irreparably damaged.
5. reinstall the gas line, thermocouple, burner tube, and the pilot tube to the gas valve.
6. Fill tank with water. Make sure to open a hot water faucet and purge all air from the tank.
7. Check for leaks where the gas line hooks up with soapy water.
8. Relight pilot light and check operation.
9. Set the new temperature setting to a medium setting and then adjust the temperature to your likeing from there and adequate time for heating completely.
