Sediment build up is usually causes thumping and noises from tank. it needs flushed out. models, where the heat source is beneath the tank. The burner heats the water under the sediment, leading to a build of steam. The steam finally escapes as bubbles, which can cause the sounds.

have a good day !

How to flush out the water heater


Connect one end of garden hose to spout located near bottom of water heater. Put other end near drain or run to outside whichever suits your particular situation better. Shut off water valve at top of heater and open spout to drain. You might not have to drain the whole thing if you do this regularly. If it's never been done before you probably should. When water stops draining out shut off spout and open valve at top of tank to fill it back up. Disconnect garden hose. Water will be cold for about an hour before it has a chance to heat back up. Should be done about once a year or so depending on your water unless you have a self cleaning water heater.

Where is water shut off valve on Rheem Electric Water Heater?


The shut-off is not on the water heater.
The shut-off is usually located on cold water pipe that enters water heater.
See image of shut-off:

If shut-off is not located on cold pipe at water heater, then turn off water to house at water meter.

New water heater,makeing a whisling noise ?


If you installed flexible lines at the supply connections, try moving supply's in a different position. You should also get a pressure gauge and check the incoming water pressure to the house. If there is a regulator, be sure and check on the regulated side.

Installed a new 50 gal electric Rheem water heater. Within about an hour the tank began making a strange bell like ringing. When you shut the power off the noise stops. What the heck?


Sounds like pressure building up in your line to much. Did you make sure to get all of the air out of the system by opening up your relief valve?

Losing hot water in one facet only


There is something in the line or in the faucet.Are your pipes going to the faucet black iron or galvinze.Some of the pipe will rust up and stop a full flow of water.But I would check the faucet first to see if the screw is loose or somethng in it.

Rheem 50 Gal Hot Water Heater will not stay lit


On the back of the gas valve (where you turn the temp up) there is a stem that actually goes into the tank that senses the temprature of the water it could be dirty or buried in sediment depending on how old the tank is, or just bad. if the tank is over 10 years old i wouldn't bother replacing the gas valve, the tank is probably not far behind. A new valve will run around $100.00 maybe a little less. You wont find it at menards or home depot in stock but they may be able to order it for you. Menards sells rheem products or try you local plumbing supply house. REMEMBER TO RELIEVE THE PRESSURE ON THE TANK BEFORE YOU WORK ON IT. IF YOU CHANGE THE VALVE DRAIN IT FIRST!
