Easiest way to check that is to put 12 vdc to + terminals, and ground to valve body, and use air in inlet, which should come out orifice side when energized. Jumper wires to a 12 or 14.4 volt cordless drill battery makes it easy. No flow, 1 or other or both solenoids stuck or shot, replace valve.

WOULD SOFT WATER HAVE A BAD EFFECT ON THIS MODEL AS IT HAS RUSTY BITS


Hot water heaters are a collector of sediment. The proper care includes flushing out the collected debris through the low side drain faucet. The problem is the faucet is not designed correctly to carry out the needed task. If you are handy... turn off the water and gas or electricity to your water heater. Relieve the water pressure through the temperature/pressure relief valve on the side of the water heater tank. Once pressure is relieved close the valve. Determine if you have a 1/2 inch or a 3/4 inch diameter drain valve hole in the side of the tank where the drain valve is located. The drain valve can be removed with channel lock pliers, an 8 or 10 inch adjustable wrench, or a small 8 to 10 inch pipe wrench. Water will leak out the threaded hole while the valve is out. If everything is closed maybe 2 cups of water will leak out of the hot water tank as you check drain valve thread size. DO NOT take your time checking thread size. After you know the pipe thread size go to the hardware store ( Home Depot, Lowe's etc) purchase a short nipple (1 1/2 to 3 inch depending on available space) and a ball valve (brass) due to the water temperature. You will also need a brass adapter for pipe thread to garden hose thread (male both ends). This adapter goes into the ball valve to allow for the connection of a garden hose. Connect the pipe and valve together using the correct pipe thread sealant and install in place of the original plastic drain valve. Install pipe to hose adapter using thread sealant. With the ball valve in place turn the water back on. Gas or electricity back on. Connect a garden hose to the ball valve. Place the other end of the garden hose in a safe area as hot water and debris will be expelled through the hose. With water on, Gas or Electricity on and the relief valve closed actuate the ball valve to the full open position for approximately 3 seconds then close the valve. Repeat the open and close of the ball valve three times. Observe the debris that emptied out of the garden hose. You may be surprised at what you see. If the water runs clear, disconnect the garden hose the task is completed. You can wait until the following year to repeat the process. Your pipe and valve are now a part of the water heater, they may remain in place. Put the hose away.

A.O. Smith promax electronic controller is not working


Question is not clear.
Do you want instructions to replace valve or want a service manual to test out the parts?
Open following link to help identify gas valve and download possible service manual that applies to that gas valve.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-adjust-temperature-on-water-heater.html#intelli

It is usually recommended that a professionally trained person replace the gas valve.
If you have the intellivent gas valve, then it usually has identifying marks on side of valve, or call AO Smith with the model and serial number from label on side of tank.
Turn off gas and disconnect gas line from side of valve.
The manifold tube and wires are disconnected.
The gas valve unscrews counterclockwise.
If you want more details as the project requires, add a comment with specifics and that sends email that I will answer.

Drain valve leaking. Gor replacement part. Cannot get old valve off . Does the whole valve come off , unscrew or pull off? serial number is RN1296A 18392. Will the new part fit the same New...


If valve is dripping, buy garden hose cap and screw onto valve.
Whole valve unscrews counterclockwise.
If valve is plastic, expect it to break off.
If valve is brass, use cheater bar on your pipe wrench.
I don't know that serial number or part number, but drain valves are standard 3/4" pipe thread.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-water-heater-drain-valve.html

Drain valve can be rusted in place and impossible to remove without draining tank and putting water heater on it's side.
Install new water heater so drain valve is accessible, and buy new water heater with brass valve instead of plastic.

I have a rheem 21v50 hot water heater and it is dripping from the spout on the side. How do I stop this slight drip?


Hi, W/D here.
What you are describing sounds like your t&p (temperature and pressure) safety valve, and resetting one involves some risk. You need to have a plan B if resetting it doesn't work.
Plan B: Locate the valve above the water heater. This is the cold water inlet. Locate the gas shut off knob.
We'll execute plan A. Make sure that we are talking about the t&p valve. It will have a tag attached to it, listing the maximum pressure and temperature for the valve. The valve will also have a lever on the top of the valve, attached to a pin.
Try tapping on the pin that the lever is attached to. These aren't hard knocks, but about the amount of force if you were hitting a tack with a small hammer. Just a few taps, then wait. If this seals off the leak, you're done. If not.....
Get a pair of gloves on before proceeding from here. What you can do is lift the lever on the t&p valve, letting some water discharge out the piping. Caution here, the water can be very hot, so you want to protect yourself. The intent here is to flush water through the seat of the valve, clearing any debris out of the valve so that it can seat properly. There are three positions that you can put the lever in, the ready position, which is it's normal position, partially opened, where you lift the lever until you get water, and locked open where you lift the lever and it stays open when the lever is about 90 degrees opened from the ready position. Get something to catch the water if you need to, Place a washcloth in the unbreakable container to reduce the amount of splash. With your gloves on, lift the lever slowly until you get a steady flow of water out of the valve, then release the lever. If this stops the flow, again, you're done.
If neither of these methods resolve the issue (tapping or flushing), then the valve will need to be replaced.
IF THE LEAK GETS WORSE: (Plan B): Close the water inlet valve to the heater described above, and shut off the gas control knob. Relieve the pressure off of the tank by opening a hot water faucet that is fed by this water heater.
Best regards, --W/D--

We have a brand new rheem 40 gal elec water heater, after installation we have water leaking from the base of the relief valve, pooling up in the plastic fitting and making it way over the side all over...


Water heater should be set in a drip pan.
Otherwise, put 1 gallon bucket under TP release pipe to catch water.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-at-bottom-of-water-heater.html#drip-pan

When you say relief valve, I assum you are talking about brass valve located on top of tank or near top of tank. This is TP valve and a pipe connects to this valve and runs down to within 6" of bottom of tank. TP valve has a small lever on it.
If you are talking about tank drain valve located at bottom of tank, then add a comment.
Following information is for TP valve.

Dripping TP valve can be caused by 3 different thing:

1) Obstruction inside TP valve. Open TP valve for a moment to flush away particles and slowly lower lever back down. See if water stops dripping, if not, then replace TP valve

2) Defective TP valve: replace TP valve. Turn off electricity to water heater. Let heater cool for several hours so you do not get scalded. Close shut off valve located above tank on cold side. Open tub spout to relieve pressure, open tank drain or open TP valve and empty water below TP valve level. If TP is located on top of tank, not much water has to be drained. Tank is under press when hot, so be careful. Put teflon tape on new valve and install with big pipe wrench by turning clockwise until TP valve is very tight.

3) Overheating tank. TP valve is temperature-pressure valve. If tank water is over 150 degrees, the TP valve starts drizzling hot water to relieve tank pressure.
Lower tank pressure two different ways:
a) turn down thermostat

b) install expansion tank on incoming cold water line

My kids just bought an older home w/a rinnai continuum nc-45-4us. right now their house phone isn't installed, so they can't phone, but they can't turn on hot water. any suggestions


Run through the basic checks
  • Power lead from the heater plugged in a socket turned on.
  • Gas on to house
  • All valves below heater in on position.
  • If they have controllers in the house turn on (key pads marked with Rinnai logo in kitchen or bathrooms usually)
There is a turbine that spins in the heater when a hot tap is run. If the heater has been sat for some time not operating the turbine might have stuck. Run the hot tap and keep it running, using a hammer give the centre pipe connection under the heater a firm hit a few times(not too hard). This might unstick the turbine.

Leaking pressure relief valve


what is the water pressure on the cold side? You may need to install a pressure reducing valve at the water heater inlet to reduce inlet pressure and keep pop off valve from opening when not needed.

Rheemglas Fury DV leaking?


Rachel,

I don't know if you have resolved your issue by changing the T&P relief valve. However, if you have replaced it and it appears to have resolved the problem ... it will most likely be only a temporary resolve. And what has happened, it that the water that was being relieved via the T&P valve is now unknowingly leaking / being relieved by a toilet or some other means.

The reason of the leak in the first place is that the most likely the water purveyor has recently installed a DCV (dual check valve) at or within the water meter location. Not knowing where you live, but we are in NC and these DVC's are being installed all over the country.

Basically, your home's plumbing system used to be an "open system" and not it is a "closed system". In earlier times, when the water heater cycled it heated the water, which cause the volume to thermally expand ... and the water was pushed backwards through the meter and it did not allow the water pressures to build. However, with the DCV installed ... now when the water heater cycles and expands water, with no place for the excess water volume to migrate, it now causes a hydraulic effect within the closed system ... which causes the water pressure to become elevated, ultiamtely being relieved at the T&P ...

Here are a couple of links from Watts ....that will help.
http://www.watts.com/pro/divisions/watersafety_flowcontrol/learnabout/learnabout_thermexpansion.asp

http://www.watts.com/pro/divisions/watersafety_flowcontrol/support/support_DETsizing.asp


Locally, we have been on the Cross Connection / Dual Check Valve crusade since early in 1991. We concur that the check valves warrant installation. However the Buidling / Plumbing Codes are not up to speed with truly what is going and how much damage to personal property is occurring with failed water lines ... both inside the home and outside.

Best, Gary H.
