Thermostats and elements are fairly common items from home improvement stores. remove the old ones and take with you, a representitive can cross reference them for you. Just make sure the elements are of the same voltage and wattage rating

Need to relight Rheem hwh. Have not seen unit, but believe it is electric.

electric heaters dont need to be light because they dont use gas, the power is off to the heater or the thermastat is bad or the heating element is bad. call the manufacture and get free customer service and support over the phone.

Check the thermastat, located in removable panel. warning dont set above 120- 130. If not the case it could be a bad heating coil. Easy to change in electric just googl a how to sitr. If your not Real Handy with Your Handa I would recomend calling a plumber to check heating element, Could be cheaper to replace
