Question about Rheem 81VP6S/430126 Water Heater
We have a Rheem 16 instant gas water heater - probably 10 years old - that is making a constant annoying buzzing/whirring noise when operated and while reheating.
We have requested a service call for next Tuesday, however are wondering whether it would be more cost effective to replace the unit.
How long are these heaters expected to last and is there an easy fix to this issue?
About the only device in that heater that could cause the noise you describe is an electrically operated valve that controls water flow.
Rheem is a better-than-average company so I would give them a call and describe your problem to them; I'll bet that they will be glad to tell you which part you need and supply it to you.
We had a heat pump system from Rheem that needed only the replacement of one large relay and the outside unit fan motor during more than 25 years of service and is still operating at age 30 in our former home.
