Where is the reset button on reliance gas water heater


No reset button.
The gas control valve is the thermostat

Intellivent gas control can be reset, and Honeywell can be reset under some circumstances.
Otherwise, bad thermostat means replace gas control valve

Have a reliance electric water heater model 606; have no hot water. I am having a problem finding the reset switch.


If it was working and recently stopped working, the heating element that heats the water probably went bad, no longer functioning. Check to make sure that there is or is not a reset button, and if there is, press and reset the heater. It's not difficult to remove the old heater element and replace it, but make sure the circuit breaker power to the water heater is off when you remove it. Take it to a water heating supply store, or large hardware store with the Brand and model number of your water heater (Reliance RELIANCE ELECTRIC WATER HEATER,model 606 ) to buy another one.

the intake screen or as is called flame trap is located on the very bottom of the heater underneath. this is very important that you keep this clean or it will keep going out. this is the only way this heater has to get air to the burning chamber.

Hello, i have a reliance 606 im having a problem that the reset button, it keep on tripping. when i reset it last like 2 days then it trips again. i have changed the upper thermostat and element and it...


It sounds like you have things pretty well covered. I would change reset and if it continues to trip breaker I would check wiring very carefully where it enters top of water heater. Check for any nicks or bare spots on wiring insulation. Other than that about all I can think of is to change breaker. Sometimes they do get weak and trip to easily. Hope this helps. Thanks

More than likely it needs to be replaced if you have to constantly reset it. Shut of power and repalce thermostat, it just snaps in place and easy to remove.

The reset button has popped for the last 3 nights and I have reset it each morning. It doesn,t do this during the day when water is being used. Also the water is scalding hot with the temperature setting...


replace immediately!!!

replace both upper and lower thermostats. not just the upper that is giving the trouble. after you replace them, make sure to set them both to the same water temp markings, they will opperate more efficiently.

My reliance electric hot water heater keeps shutting down. when I push the reset button it goes on and works for anywhere from 1 day to 5 weeks. Where do I look for a solution.


According to Reliance's trouble shooting guide, you may have faulty upper thermostat that is overheating, which is causing the high temp limit switch to open and shut it down. Pushing the reset switch is only a temporary solution until you find out what is causing it to shut down. Is it still under warranty? Call Reliance and find out. 1-800-365-4054

Top thermostat reset button kicks out


The top button is connected to the top heater element  which is likely shorting out. Drain the tank below the element that the thermostat is attached to. Remove and replace the element

If you reset the water heater the first time you were without, Then odds are it is the water heater. probably an element went back. If the power off check for continuity.
