There should be a rubber plug on the side of the jack about half way down on the body. Lay the jack on the side, remove rubber plug, and fill with hydraulic oil and stand jack back up on its base and allow excess oil to run out until fluid is level with hole (or put in some fluid and stand up to check for level)and replace rubber plug. This is to be done with the piston in the down position. So as to not over fill.

If you get an air gap in it. Open the valve and pump it 15 or 20 times with the valve open...then close it and jack it up. Hopefully it will go to the full extension even if its slow. Once its at the top...pump it 4 or 5 more times to bleed off the air. Open her back up and mash her down and hopefully that will handle the problem.

How to change out copper piping from release valve


If the release valve referred to is the pressure release valve, then a water leak out the attached vent pipe is an indication that the valve is failing. To change the valve, the water must be allowed to cool (turn off AC power or gas) and the water level inside the tank must be lowered (drained) to below the level of the pressure relief valve. Once this is accomplished the vent pipe is unscrewed from the relief valve and the pressure relief valve is unscrewed from the water tank. A new pressure relief valve with a sealant on the threads, is then screwed and tightened into place with the outlet port facing downward. The vent pipe is attached to the new valve and the tank refilled with water. A hot water facet must be opened to allow air to exit while filling. Upon becoming full (water will begin to flow from facet), turn off the facet and restore AC power or gas, therefore allowing the water heater to heat up. When the first hot water is utilized there may be some air expelled from the facet.

Tp valve placement


Of those two access ports you see, one is for the anode. As for depth, most relief valves will reach. If the thread isn't long enough, you can purchase a long shank relief valve, or just buy a 3/4" brass or galvanized extension coupling.

New installation I tightened relief valve and it sits right over wiring connections. If I turn it back it feels loose but no leak so far?


The relief valve is supposed to have a 3/4 line leading away and down to 9" from the floor . That said if it is loose, tighten it slightly and then run piping away from the controls.

follow this chart troubleshooting and fix it. God bless you
est and replace a high-limit cutoff:
  1. Disconnect power to the heater at the electrical panel and post a sign warning others not to turn it on.
  2. Remove the upper access panel and push the reset button.
  3. Replace the access panel and turn the power back on. If the water is hot, the reset was the problem. If not, you'll need to turn the power off again and reopen the access panel.
  4. Use a multimeter to test the cutoff terminals for continuity. If faulty, replace with an exact replacement part.
Drain a tank:
  1. Shut off power at the electrical panel and post a sign warning others not to turn it on.
  2. Close the cold-water supply valve and open a hot-water faucet somewhere in the house (to speed draining).
  3. Attach a garden hose to the drain valve and run it outside the house.
  4. Open the drain valve and allow all water to drain out.
  5. To refill the tank, close the drain valve tightly and open the cold-water supply valve. Also open a nearby hot-water faucet. When a steady stream of water flows from that faucet, the tank is full and the faucet can be closed.
  6. Once the tank is full, turn the electrical power back on.
Test and replace a relief valve:
  1. Lift the spring lever on the valve to fill a small cup. Check the cup for sediment.
  2. If no water spurts out, or if water continues to drip after the valve is released, replace the valve.
  3. Cut power at the electrical panel and post a sign warning others not to turn it on. Close the cold-water supply valve.
  4. Drain a few gallons of water from the tank.
  5. Unscrew and remove the discharge pipe if used.
  6. Loosen the relief valve with a pipe wrench, then remove the valve by hand.
  7. Apply pipe tape to the threads of the replacement valve and screw it into the tank by hand. Tighten it with a pipe wrench. Screw the discharge pipe (if any) into the valve outlet.
  8. Refill the water heater and restore electrical power.
Replace a drain valve:
  1. Shut off power at the electrical panel and post a sign warning others not to turn it on.
  2. Close the cold-water supply valve and drain the water heater completely (see above).
  3. Unscrew the drain valve with a pipe wrench.
  4. Replace the drain valve with an identical unit wrapping the end with pipe tape.
  5. Refill the tank and restore electricity.

WATER KEEP RUNNING OUT OF THE RELEASE VALE


you can go to get another relief valve because if its dripping its probably bad. if you have a clark supply center nearby, you can get one there! or another plumbing place or water heater supply. you may have to drain out some water to bring the level below the valve. Shut off the power to water heater. If electric, turn gas to pilot setting, if a gas water heater. Cut off water supply to water heater as well. It is not necessary to drain the entire tank. Open a hot water faucet, drain water from tank, drain for approximately three to five minutes. Prepare the new relief valve with Teflon tape. Unscrew the relief valve counter-clockwise with a wrench to remove.
Turn the water supply back on to water heater. Make sure water is running from the open faucet before turning the power back on. good-day!

Our whirlpool Ee 3j50rd045v keeps releasing water from the discharge line.We have it set on energysmart and seems to discharge in the afternoon after it hasn't been used for a few hours. We have taken it...


This sounds like the Themal Relief valve is not working properly. Some of these valves have a lever that you can lift to PURGE the valve of debris. If there is too much debris in the valve it lodges in the valve seat and caused blow-by / leakage. In the evnt that your thermal relief valve does NOT have a purge lever and you can not get the valve to seat after going as far as remving it to clean it then it should be replaced. The relief valve is Item 8 of this link:

Why vent hole has been provided on the venting pipeline of pressure relief valve.


A vent hole is required on a pressure relief valve to allow excess 'dangerous' fluid or gas to escape as required in a controlled manner normally via another pipe.

Relief valve on rheem 41v40 s-40f leaks


Relief (pop-off) valves can be replaced. Make sure to get the right one. They unscrew from the unit. They are generally screwed in very tight, you may have to get a good size wrench or pipe wrench to loosen it; especially if it is more than a few years old.

My refilled 60 # propane tank leaked and then stopped flowing.


Rick, if the tank is normally plumbed for a horizontal position, and you have it standing vertically, then you are feeding liquid propane to your pilot light, hence the frosted hose etc., and a tendency for the pilot light to go out as it has too rich of a fuel to burn. There should be no vent to allow air in as propane is pressurized, and only attains zero pressure at 40 below zero farenheit. The valve you speak of should have been the liquid vent valve which is used during filling only, and is closed during any other use. Your supply valve should be in the wide open position. The pressure relief valve is only operational when the tank has been overfilled or overheated. You should have a pressure regulator between the tank and the appliance you are trying operate. Hope this helped. Marvin
