Hello Gwest rxshaw,

I understand that you are having a problem with your Hot water heater and need to reset the thermostats on it. The hot water tank that you have has an upper and a lower element the upper thermostat has the reset in most cases. I will try to walk you thru it.

1. Remove the upper service panel on the side of the tank
2 You will see the black thermostat it has a plastic cover over it and has wires running form the top of the tank to it and wires running from it down ward toward the other service panel. Do not remove the plastic cover as it does not need to be removed and lessens the chance of getting shocked.
3. Locate the dime size red button in the middle of the thermostat press it down and release
4. Listen to the hot water tank you should hear it heating up if the rest worked.
Below is a picture of the thermostat and red button that you need to push.

Post back to this thread so I may assit you further.

Thank you for Choosing FixYa.com

Rheem water heater flashes seven times ,it is in lock out mode


You have Honeywell electronic gas control valve, and error code is 7 flashes.
Probably you have power vent model.
One manual from different company says: "Reset gas control using on-off button on front of control, replace flammable vapor sensor, replace gas control thermostat.
But with Rheem you also need specific steps: Remove gas burner and look for broken glass vial, and then blow out arrestor screen air intake using compressed air, clean burner parts, check for unobstructed venting, you will need new glass vial from Rheem depending on year and model number of water heater that appears on label on side of unit, or they may not have a repair kit for that model, and you might need a new gas control valve depending on model and how extensive problem was

Can u tell where the reset switch is located i this model or the g91-200


The reset is the ECO.
I can get you started but have not worked on this water heater.

Open following generic manual for Rheem commercial gas water heater:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-Commercial-Gas-ECO.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-Commercial-Gas-Universal.pdf

Troubleshoot tree on page 20 shows series of tests and actions to restore ECO or determine if gas control valve is bad.
Maintenance steps start page 11. Gas water heaters today should receive yearly maintenance.

I have a Rheem Marathon 105 gal. electric hot water heater. No hot water ....


Check 240 circuit breaker.
Open top cover on water heater and push in ECO red reset button.
If reset button will not reset, then replace thermostat.
If reset is not tripped out, then either upper thermostat is bad, upper element is bad, or water heater might be getting 120V instead of 240V.
If you have some hot water, then best suspect is lower element.

Electric Water heater not heating all of sudden


If you have tankless, then open following link before calling service technician.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

If you have ordinary tank-type electric water heater, then reset button is probably tripped out, or circuit breaker is not delivering power to heater.
Reset circuit breaker, then open cover located on side of tank and push in ECO red reset button.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-water-heater.html

If you have boiler or indirect heater or solar heater or faucet-type heater, I would need more information, and might not be able to provide best answer.

I don't have hot water suddenly. Please help me.


You posted under Rheem 81VP which is 6 gallon point of use electric water heater.
3 things can cause problems: Power going to water heater, thermostat with reset button, and 1500watt element.
Check that 120Volf circuit breaker is not tripped.
Open cover on side of tank and push in red reset button.

If reset button is not tripped out or will not reset, and water heater has power, then replace thermostat is best start point.

Also test element, since elements burn out:

I need to locate the reset button on my Rheem 71-30s water heater but i can't find it.where is it?


1) Rheem 71-30 is 2-element electric water heater
Reset button is located behind upper panel located on side of tank.

2) Rheem no longer shows that exact model number so your tank is older.
To find age of water heater look at 2nd and 3rd digits of serial number, for example 06 is 2006

3) To download sample manual:
I recommend you read entire manual so it will save you money
http://www.rheem.com/product.aspx?id=91C402E4-D88A-4E32-BB5E-6D1A8D41FC37

4) This water heater is fully repairable by homeowner using generic parts from hardware store
To troubleshoot water heater: Requires $5 multimeter from Home center and about 45 minutes.
Repairs take from 40 minutes to 1 afternoon, depending on skill and problem.
Repairs cost $30-70

I need to know where the reset buttons are located on the 30gal model 71-305 Rheem hot water heater. Help I'm not getting hot water so I'm trying to start with what may be a simple solution.


Shut off all power to water heater at breaker panel,remove side cover where thermostat is located. Test that there is no voltage at connections, with meter, to be 100% sure you shut off correct breaker. Thermostat should have a red button in middle to depress to reset if it's tripped.
