Question about Rheem 50 GAL ELEC TALL Water Heater 6YR SC 82V522
The reset button is located behind top panel on water heater.
If you have some hot water, then reset is not tripped, and tank has different problem.
I suggest a complete 30-minute troubleshoot using multi-meter from hardware or home center.
When test calls for checking voltage, rotate multimeter dial to 240-250-277 VAC
When test calls for continuity or testing elements, rotate multimeter dial to Ohms
Follow troubleshooting steps from top of page to bottom, and water heater if fully repairable by homeowner.
See label on side of tank for wattage of element.
Second two digits on Rheem serial number are year of manufacture.
Shown below are Rheem 4500 Watt element and Generic upper thermostat.
