One of the elements may be bad. With the power off check each one with an ohm meter. Should show continuity.

The tube the cold water come in through goes to the bottom of the tank. If it has come loose and the cold water stays on the top you wouldn't have much hot water.

I need anode rod for my rheemglas fury model # 81V52DT. do you know what the part # is or maybe the dementions. There seems to be several diffrent ones out there. Thanks


Anode rods are generic and available from local plumbing supply store or internet.
Just cut it off so it drops into the tank without touching the bottom or sediment on the bottom.
If there is not enough room above the tank to install new rod, then buy anode rod with sausage links.

My Rheemglas fury 21DV50 hot water heater pilot goes out about every 2 days for the last week and 1/2. It will light and I'll be able to have hot showers but doesn't last more than about 2 days. Is it the...


It could be a thermocouple but first take the whole pilot assembly out and disassemble it. Clean it very good (compressed air is ok) especially the orifice inside the pilot horn. You may just have a weak pilot. If the flame is in good contact with the thermocouple and problem still exist, then change the thermocouple. I believe in doing the free things first.

How do I turn up the temp on my Rheemglas fury 82V80-2?


You have 2 thermostats inside of those covers, little things with a dial on them, turn them with a small screwdriver, Don't go too hot or you will be scalding everybody. Hope this helps.

Water discoloration. Rhreem serial rh0909ff00279 date 9/2003 model 8v520c 50 gal electric rheemglas fury. prolem occures when we use hot water. tried fixing...backwashed, drained water out completely...


Brown discoloration is evidence of a rusting or corroded steel pipe somewhere in you plumbing system. Trace the water lines back from the faucet and replace all the steel pipe.
White discoloration is minerals that separate out when the water is heated.
You can change the Anode Rod and it should help. It is not an instant fix, the rod will take a week or two to do its job.
If your water heater is still under warranty, call Rheem, they may replace the water heater free.

1 Answer

Warm water only


You can eliminate the shower control knob possibility by turning on your hot water anywhere else in the house. If you get hot water in other places, then it could be the knob causing it. A substantial lime buildup in the tank can also cause poor heat transfer from the elements to the water.
