Question about Rheem 50 GAL ELEC TALL Water Heater 6YR SC 82V522
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.
If resting the hotwater thermostat does not work you will need a volt meter with continuity and will will go to the next step and check the elements and the thermostats to see if they are bad. Post back to this thread so I may assit you further.
