I have a rheem 40 gal electric water heater. The GFI on the tank keeps popping do you know what could be causing this

Your tank has a GFCI circuit breaker?
Maybe you mean ECO reset button located on upper thermostat?

If GFCI circuit breaker is tripping, turn power off, open covers inspect for burned parts, and test elements. Copy following link for troubleshoot walk-thru:

If ECO reset button is tripping, then replace both thermostats, and test elements.

Have sta kleen 805 , have power,240 v no hot water


If I understand correctly, your water heater circuit tested for 240 Volts.

1) If circuit has power on one leg of the 240V circuit, water heater can appear to have electricity, but won't turn on since 240V needs both legs to complete the 240V circuit. Solution: test for 240 across top two screws on upper thermostat.

2) ECO reset button tripped on upper thermostat. Solution, push in reset button. If reset will not reset, then replace upper thermostat. I usually replace both upper and lower thermostats at same time: cost $28. Buy parts from home center or hardware store. Be sure to put factory-insulation and covers back so thermostat is not exposed to cooler outside temperatures, that cause hotter water than set point.

3) If ECO reset button keeps tripping, then keep resetting until you can test water heater parts. Spend 30 minutes and do complete troubleshoot on tank.
Buy cheap multi-meter from home center. When test calls for checking voltage, rotate dial to 240-250-277 VAC. When test calls for checking continuity or elements, rotate dial to Ohms (upside down horseshoe is ohms).

I have a model 71-408 B which just stop heating


If I understand correctly, you have electric water heater.
Heater suddenly stopped heating.

Four things cause sudden loss of water heater.
1) Reset button located under the top cover is tripped > turn off power, remove cover, press reset button > if reset keeps tripping, go to the troubleshooting link shown below.
2) Electric power to heater is interrupted > check circuit breaker > test for voltage > look for loose wire on breaker
3) Upper element burned out > test and replace element
4) Upper thermostat bad > replace upper thermostat

Reset button is best suspect.

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
