NEW WATTER HEATER MAKES A HUMMING /WHISTLING SOUND


Factory-installed heat traps can cause this problem:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Low-hot-water-pressure.html#trap
http://waterheatertimer.org/9-ways-to-save-with-water-heater.html#heat-trap

Remove heat traps, or heat trap inserts, or heat trap nipples.
Make your own heat traps, and save 4-9$ per year, using flex copper connections, or reconnect pipes in heat-trap configuration.
Always insulate pipes.
With electric heater, pipe insulation can run all the way to tank.
With atmospheric-vent gas water heater, the pipe insulation cannot obstruct air intake at draft hood. With power vent gas, the pipe insulation can run all the way to tank.

Rheem residential electric water heaters appear on following page:
http://www.rheem.com/products/tank_water_heaters/electric_water_heaters/

New water heaters are made with heat trap nipples pre-installed so the product meets industry energy standards.
Sample Rheem manual says: 'All models equipped with heat traps.'

I am not getting very hot water for my shower. I turned uo the tempreture and now the temp is fine. This happened before about a year ago. Do I need a new water heater? The heater is from 1998


The heating element sounds like it's going out. With you turning the temperature up, this will increase your power bill. The water heater will heat up until it reaches that temperature. Tankless water heaters are a good option if you are willing to pay the expense. But your heater sounds like it could just use new elements.

We just installed a Rheem 50 gallon water heater. When you use any hot water a low pitched vibrations occurs that you can hear in the bathroom and bedroom. When the water heater completes the heating cycle...


Every electric water heater I have ever installed makes a low hum while heating. I believe this is a combination of the current going through the elements and the minerals in the water cooking on the elements. That is the best explanation I have. Hope this helps.

How do i change the element in my water heater


The most important step is to turn the power off. If you still have the manual it is the best to follow the instructions provided in a book.

If not, learn about electric water heaters, how to test the heating elements, how they work and are they OK, than follow the instructions:

Once the power is off, turn the water supply off, attach the hose and drain the water heater.

Unscrew the terminals from the heating element and unbolt the elements from the water heater.

New heating elements has to be with same specs as the old one.

Before turning the water heater on it is VERY IMPORTANT to refill the tank.

We just bought a new water heater and it's not heating up water.


The heating element was bad. It's hard to believe that a brand new water heater would have a burn element, but that's the problem. I replace the heating element and its started working properly.

Takes a long time to heat water. Brand new Ge 50 gallon water heater. Once heated it right temp,just a long time to heat it and then won't maintain hot water. Is gas line to small? 3/8 copper line. Thanks


If you are using a 3/8" copper line for your gas, get it replaced ASAP. It will fail. 1/2" Black Iron is required with natural gas. 50 gallons is a lot of water to heat. Look on the heater label for the recovery rate.
