The heating element has most likely burned out (if its electric) if its gas then look to see if it is lightinng. if electric, the element is easy to replace and not very expensive.

If you have an Ohm meter you can test the elements (top/bottom) to see if they are good without blindly replacing them. With the POWER OFF... put the two probes on each lead of the element. If it reads between 10-15 ohms (depending on the wattage of the element) they are good. You may just need to reset the little breaker above the first element. When I get power surges from electrical storms it's the first thing to trip.

WHERE IS THE ANODE ROD ON A 606 RELIANCE HEATER


It is the 1" or 11/8" hex nut on the top of the water heater some where near the supply line. As for the anode rod it could be either magnesium or aluminum depending where it was sold. If you are going to change it out call your water provider and ask which would be better for your area and type of water.

No hot water


It is probably the thermostat. I would suggest replacing that next.

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.

How to change a thermostat on reliance 606 hot water heater. water is getting too hot and there is no sediment build up. also water heater is only 4.5 years old.


I wrote a page for changing water heater thermostat.
The photos take you through step-by-step
I recommend replacing both upper and lower thermostats so it eliminates thermostats as possible cause if water heater keeps overheating.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermostat-on-electric-water-heater.html

The Reliance 606 manual shows your water heater uses generic upper and lower thermostats from hardware store.

Likely the thermostat will solve the problem:
