SOURCE: TRYING TO REPLACE MY OLD RHEEM WATER HEATER MODEL

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.

SOURCE: Rheem 50 gallon Electric Water Heater 81V52D C repair ideas needed

It could be element shorted to ground through steel tank, so don't touch tank when breaker is ON.
Or you have undersized 12 gauge wire and 20 amp breaker and the heat has loosened breaker on the busbar. Breaker trips when heat exceeds breaker limit. Jiggle breaker and listen for crackling sound.

To restore hot water now:
Turn off circuit breaker, and open top cover then Push in reset button on top of heater to restore functionality. Put back insulation and factory cover.
To fix water heater: test and replace bad element.

Water heater is not heating water, but it is getting electricity (81V52D C)


I would start by checking the circuit breaker and the reset button if the heater has one just to get the easy possibilities out of the way. Next check the ground wire to may sure the ground wire is firmly connected. Electronics need a complete circuit in order to work. It is always possible that the wires have become corroded or broken. Please test the wiring to insure that all wires are unbroken. Please see the link below for more specific information.

How many amps does a Rheem 81V52D with both elements hooked up pull?


Does it have the wattage on it anywhere? For simplicity if it is a 4400 watt and you are running it on 220 volts, it would be 4400/220 which would be 20 amps. Now you can put in your own numbers and figure it out yourself. Hope this will help you. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

My 50 gal elec water heater model #81v52d only stay hot during a shower for 10 min how do I make the water hotter is there a dial on it?


Remove the four screws that hold the covers on the side of the water heater and carefully spread the insulation apart to see the thermostat,reset button and heating elements. The thermostat will have a adjusting screw on it that you can turn with a small blade screwdriver.There is a arrow pointing to temperature setting that you can adjust by turning the screw clockwise to increase the temperature. They normally come from the factory set at 120 degrees so you can turn it up to 135-140 and see if that helps.
Thank you and I hope this helps you.

I have a Rheem model number is 81V52D and I think I need to check the thermostat. Do I need to drain the unit in order to check the thermostat?


No you do not need to drain water heater when checking or replacing thermostats:
Water heater is drained when replacing elements or cleaning sediment out of tank.

Also look at following links: These links can teach you everything about fixing ordinary tank-type electric water heater using generic parts from hardware store.
