Water heater leaking


I would call home depot and ask how they handle their warranty with Rheem. Contact your builder and get the information of the plumier that installed the unit he should be able to give you the pluming supplier where he purchased the heater.

I purchased a hot water heater about two years ago from home depot and lost the reciept. I need to track the purchase by the serial number can that be done


1) Look for brand name of your heater on following .pdf file:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Find-Age-of-water-heater.pdf

2) Home Depot sells GE heaters made by Rheem.
I am assuming that serial number starts with 1209, and that year of manufacture is 09 for 2009.

3) These water heaters have glass vial that breaks when combustion chamber experiences overheating due to dirty combustion parts, clogged air intake, exposure to flammable vapor.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-repair-Rheem-TRD.html

4) Water heater warranties are usually first-year: full parts, labor and tank. After first year: parts and tank but no labor.
Warranty may be pro-rated and the value diminishes as water heater ages.

5) Warranty may not apply is customer has not followed installation and maintenance as shown in product manual, such as checking anode rod, and yearly service by trained technician.

Need to know the year of my tank RR410T


the age of all water heaters is listed under the serial #, not model #. you will have to call a plumbing supply house that deals in your brand of waterheater, a.o. smith, ruud, bradfordwhite,etc.

I have a Rheem paloma Tankless WH Model PTG-53PVN. I am getting error 05 and then error 13 and it shuts down. I have run through all the cleaning etc. - no help. Lat year I received a replacement board and...


http://globalimageserver.com/FetchDocument.aspx?ID=1371e2e6-22f2-45d6-a712-d2679eac9e0c
is common error codes for The Rheem tankless water heaters and has recommend actions. It says that error code is imperfect combustion alarm, which basically tells you that the system is not getting enough air for some reason.

Error 13 is also an air flow problem. http://www.plumbersurplus.com/pdf/05223.pdf?SSAID=389818 So I doubt that reprogramming will do any good.
Rheem products are air flow sensitive and something as simple as storing something against or close to a Rheem will cause trouble.

http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-TanklessParts-Accessories.pdf If you look at Page 10 of that manual you will see that the RTG20074FK is the natural gas chip for sea level. Basically it lets the unit make adjustments for different altitudes. It is NOT programmable! It should be installed on the control board IF you live at sea level.

Moved into brand new house March '06. The Rheem water heater has slow seapage/leakeage around bottom. What kind of warranty does Rheem offer? Under 5 yrs of use.


Please specify the exact source of the leak? If it is the tank drain then that can be resolved by replacing the boiler **** valve. If it is the lower element then it may be tightened. If it is the tank itself then you will be faced with replacing it. Sorry, but I am not familiar with the warranty on the Rheem WH. Warranties vary, usual 5, 6 or 10 year.

I have a rheem fury 50gal gas water heater that will not stay on. I have replaced the thermo couple, it did lite but then went out.


I would like to know how old this heater is. This information can be found on either model or serial numbers.It won't appear obvious but last six numbers will tell you. You have already changed thermo-couple so I would check to see that it's properly centered in pilot flame.When you light it hold pilot button down for two-three mins.while watching thermo-couple.It should be a nice cherry red. If it is and pilot goes out after you release button then you either have another bad thermo-couple or gas valve is bad.If it does not get cherry red at least on tip then you need to reposition thermo-couple and try again. If gas valve is bad and heater is less then six years old valve will be covered under warrenty,however labor won't typically be covered unless you have extened service contract.Hope this helps.Thanks.

Water discoloration. Rhreem serial rh0909ff00279 date 9/2003 model 8v520c 50 gal electric rheemglas fury. prolem occures when we use hot water. tried fixing...backwashed, drained water out completely...


Brown discoloration is evidence of a rusting or corroded steel pipe somewhere in you plumbing system. Trace the water lines back from the faucet and replace all the steel pipe.
White discoloration is minerals that separate out when the water is heated.
You can change the Anode Rod and it should help. It is not an instant fix, the rod will take a week or two to do its job.
If your water heater is still under warranty, call Rheem, they may replace the water heater free.
