SOURCE: need to up water temp

The two blue rectangular cover plates, held on by two scews, cand be removed by taking out screws. There might be a little piece of insulation present when you pull off the panel, pull that out. You will see a pointer that is shaped kind of like an egg, pointing at numbers which represent temp in degrees. Start with the lower dial, this is your thermostat, Raise temp setting by 10 deg. Hypothetically, depending on what your present setting is, try setting lower thermostat at 130 and upper at 120. Your lower thermostat should be higher than the upper because of heat rising, it is more effecient and both thermostats don't have to be at the same temp. This will save you money in the long run.

Protect yourself.
If water heater is tripping breaker and water heater is wet, then danger of electrocution.
Turn off power.

You do not need special element. Local home center and hardware sell generic elements.
Check side of tank for element wattage, usually 4500 Watts.

If fiberglass insulation is wet, you need new insulation because the insulation and cover cannot be left off the heater.
If thermostat is not covered with insulation, then cooler air will cause thermostat to mis-read temperature, and tank will overheat.
Putting a wet water heater back into service is dangerous.
Manufacturers suggest replacing flooded water heater.
Local Lowes here sells new 40 gallon electric water heater for $207.
Loosen anode rod before installing.

I have no hot water in my house. I have a Rheem model #82V52-2 with a 50 Gal tank, mfg date 11/2005. Please help I don't want to have to pay someone to come over. Thanks!


There are several possible points of failure in your electric water heater. The easiest to check requires no more than a look at your main electric panel and locating any tripped circuit breaker. If done properly, it should even be marked as 'Water Heater.'
These breakers are not immune to failure; they can trip for no reason if defective. If you find a tripped breaker which may have two breakers visibly mechanically connected, reset it by pushing it to the tripped end first and then to the 'On' position. If there are no faults in your heater elements or the breaker, you may be finished already.
The other failures would require that you obtain a multimeter so you can check continuity of several items. Such meters, most digital today, can be found at auto parts stores, Radio Shack and other electronics outlets. If you have a Harbor Freight Tools store in your area, you can buy them there for well under $10 US and the simplest will do the job. You shouldn't have to spend more than $20 US to buy a usable one and any of them are very useful for simple home and auto troubleshooting. They are also numerous on eBay:

TRYING TO REPLACE MY OLD RHEEM WATER HEATER MODEL NUMBER 81V52D C SERIAL NUMBER RH 1297B30669 50 GAL US TANK ELECTRIC WHAT IS THE UPDATED VERSION?


I would say your water heater is from the fury series; new model number 82V52-2. I've included a link with my solution that you should take a look at. You could also look at water heaters of a different brand if this one isn't available in your area. Kenmore, GE, and Hotpoint are all very good brands of water heaters.
