Richmond 40 gal water heater from 2003 gurgles loudly when refilling, is that normal


I'm not sure what you mean by "gurgles when refilling." If you mean that it is making noise when heating the water, that is usually a sign that sediment has built up in the bottom of the tank. This results in the surface of the tank bottom to overheat and the sound you hear is the water flashing to steam. This usually results in tank failure as the glass lining will crack an the tank will rust out. If it's not too late you could drain and flush the tank to try to remove the sediment but if has hardened to a solid mass it won't come out.

I have a 640dors reliance capacity40 water won't stay hot long(electric)


remove the two covers one high and one low and set the temp higher. This time of year with colder water comming in the house the water heater has to work harder to raise the temp of the incomming water. In the summer the incommong water is much warmer. 40 gal is a small water heater and you will only get about 15 gal of hot water with the ice cold water entering the water heater as you use the hot water. You can get a bigger water heater. even better is to go tankless and a have never ending hot water and save money at the same time.

Low amount of hot water


You say a very new water heater. You won't get 40 gallons of hot water from a 40 gallon water heater because the continuing influx of cold water will cool your hot water down. However, it appears that your bottom water heater element needs replacing. If the top element is bad, you'll get no hot water. If your bottom element is bad, you'll get "some" hot water. Try replacing the bottom element. DON'T FORGET to turn off the electricity AND water first (closeby towels are also handy)!
