I want to think (meaning don't quote me on this) components are two years and the exchanger is probally five. Be forwarned if it is leaking inside the cabnet most often this is chemical damage and not covered.

Registration new water heater

Unknown brand and type water heater.
Tank, hybrid, solar-assisted, indirect, tankless, condensing, gas, electric, under-counter, RV, mobile home, etc?

1) Water heater warranty-coverage does not require registration of product. Usually the registration can take place at manufacturer's site, but not all sites have registration forms.

2) Almost all water heater warranties cover original owner, one-family household installation, when product is installed according to product manual. SO if you register product, then move to new home and take expensive water heater with you, then the registration does not show new address, thereby voiding product warranty because it was relocated.

3) Warranties after first year usually cover parts and tank. Many warranties today are pro-rated, which means longer warranty is becoming almost valueless.

Register water heater

Whirlpool water heaters are made by AOSmith company, which owns American, Reliance, State, Craftmaster and makes water heaters for Kenmore and Whirlpool.
These are good heaters.

Register Whirlpool product at following link:

It is not necessary to register product for warranty to be valid.
And if you move to new home and take water heater, then warranty does not follow. So it might be disadvantageous to register product in that circumstance.

You can see brand, model number, and serial number located on label on side of tank.
The serial number is unique and is key for warranty coverage, even if you lost receipt. Serial number shows year of manufacture in first two digits.

It is not necessary to register water heater for warranty to be valid, as long as following applies: Original owner, single-family non-commercial residential installation, and installation that conforms to instructions shown in product manual, and water heater is maintained as shown in product manual.

If you purchased extended warranty, then remember the warranty is carried by a third party that also requires same as above.
And the warranty may be pro-rated, rendering it nearly valueless in later years.

Typical water heater warranty:
First year of warranty covers tank-parts-labor.
After first year, the warranty shrinks to tank-parts.
The math shows that shorter warranty tank has greater percentage of full coverage.
Convert ordinary 6 year tank into 9-12-15 year tank by maintaining water heater. Especially cleaning air intake located on bottom of tank, inspecting anode rod to prevent rusting, and following maintenance schedule shown in product manual.

I have a Power Star electric hot water heater, model AE 125, serial # 39-203967, model 45-55130. purchased 5 years ago at Home Depot for $850.00. I love the heater when it works. This is the second time I...

Bosch has 10-year limited warranty.
Probably the seller honors warranty first 90 days and Bosch afterward.

I think warranty is similar to car warranty where parts are covered, and they pay for parts to patch up the blown transmission but not give you a new car. But I hear of cases where the company just send a whole new Tankless unit and you install it yourself.

Contact Home Depot and present them with receipt.
Contact Bosch with the same information given in Fixya question.

Add a comment and say why unit broke down first time, and add what resolution was reached to help others with same question.

I have an RTA International Patio Heater, Model 385.001 with a clogged pilot light valve. I need a way to fix the problem or a new replacement part. I have a commercial gas heating repair company working...

Gas Valves are not meant to be repaired only replaced. So I would have them replace the part and have them warranty there work. If the heater is very old and the replacement part is going to be half the cost of a new one You might want to put that Money on a new one and get a New manufactures warranty in the deal. Just another point of view....... Hope this helps

Our brand new lp pentair heater for our pool/spa won't work.. it gives us "service heater" indicator light. help. i would love to get into a heated spa..

Its always best to first check all your initial connections. Make sure all the electrical is correctly installed, the heater has a proper connection for the gas and that you have good flow through your LP regulator.
There are a number of troubleshooting items that you can do to work on understanding why the "service heater" light is coming on. Pentair's owner manual is actually very descriptive when troubleshooting this particular issue, including a simple to follow and easy to read flow chart.
If this is a brand new unit, you would still be under factory warranty and available to have a manufacturers warranty station service the heater.
Warranty Certificate
Once you have completed the diagnosis as outlined in the owners manual, if you are still having issues with the heater, I suggest you contact Pentair for a local warranty station @ 800-831-7133. When calling, make sure you have the Make, Model, and Serial number of the unit. They will also ask the date of install and the company performing the install (if not by yourself).
I understand that this appears vague, but when you see the standard troubleshooting guide for the SERVICE HEATER error indicator, you will understand why simply posting a detailed response would be a little daunting!
Good luck and please let us know what you find out.

Starts runs briefly shuts off its brand new

well more information on heater would help can't help with limited info even make or model and a quick step by step what its doing would help and if its brand new why not take it back if portable or call installation company and get swapped for new, all heaters should have at least a year warranty on them so get it fixed for free under warranty. Also for someone to help you here you need to give more info on heater i could write out pages and pages on why it may not be going to cover all heaters and all heater problems, e.g. if its a gas heater and runs 2 flu's they may be crossed over, or it may be goin out on a electrcal fault but is it electric or gas or reverse cycle heat pump, is it wood or just a car heater the range is so vast so need more information thank you

Hello i have a problem with a brand new lxi heater it not lighten .gas is on igntor lite but heater will not lite

What has the contractor who installed it or the dealer who sold it to you said? It is under a manufacturers warranty so if it needs servicing you should leave it to someone in your area who provides warranty service for Jandy. You can locate one on their site.
