Water heater is rotten
go to home depot and buy a replacement heater
it might be posible to rent a water heater from the local electric co and they will install it for free and charge you 12-15 per month for the heater saves money and saves cash for install
if it breaks they replace it same for gas heater let them dicker arround wit the heater and pull there hair out somtimes it is beter to rent than to buy also you can get a biger heater if you want they usualy will suply a larger unit at the same price if it will fit in your space

Repair a cold water leak at the bottom of my water heater


Hi -

If your water heater is working (ie: making hot water) then most likely your heater isn't leaking. Rather, the leak is coming from the cold water supply and running down the tank where you see it at the bottom of the tank. A working tank that is leaking would produce a leak of hot water - not cold. You should carefully check the cold water piping for a leak, drip or stream of water and make the required repairs.

Doesn't always come on with hot water is turned on


Water heaters draw water into the bottom, and as the hot water heats, it rises and hot water exits from the top.
You might want to check each fixture, does the hot pipe (tubing)feel warm when you run it for a moment. Can you get warm water from some of the fixtures, but not others?
I'm bet there is a leak at the top of the intake which is filling from the top down, instead of bottom up.

Water is over flowing and coming out over the top of my hot water heater, i shut the water off and turned the temp down and turned the water back on after a few hours and water still is over flowing over...


If pipes are leaking, then that can be repaired.
If tank is rusted out and water escaping from the tank, then turn off the water plus power to the heater for safety, and then replace water heater.
Rusted water heater can be welded for repair, but remember that hot water is under pressure and tank can rupture any time.
Safest course if to replace heater.

Hot water steam is coming out of the center hole located on the top of the Rheem fury 41v50n


Turn water heater off so it doesn't rupture.

Sounds like tank is rusted out.

Replace water heater. You can limp by for a while with rusted heater by turning it on for short periods when you need hot water. Then take time to find best deal on new heater.

Drain pipe leaking on outside of home from hot water heater,? cause


You have a safety valve which is made to relieve pressure in the hot water heater in case it overheats. It may have developed a leak. Sometime you can lift up the valve and close it again a few times and it will reseal otherwise replace it. It's on the top of the heater with a small lever. Usually made of brass.

The elbow is broken and the air from the hot water tank is leaked


Any exhaust air coming from the gas water heater is potentionally life threating. I would get it fixed. Do you have a CO2 meter close by the water heater? If it is leaking air back into the house that has CO2, after a certain amount the alarm will go off. If you dont have one get one. A must have with gas appliances.
