SOURCE: Water heater problem (no leak on floor)

shut off the power to the hot water heater wait 5 to 15 min. If the noise stops it is the water heater eating up electricity. Turn it back on if noise starts again feel about 5 or so feet down the hot water line. If this line is hot you have a leak beyond the hot water heater. If you still hear it when the power is off to the water heater. next turn the water off on the cold water line at the water heater with the power off also Look at the water meter and see if the hand or wheel on the meter is moving and it should no be. Also think if the breaker to the hot water is off the electric meter should practically stop if no refrig oe anything else on. Have someone watch the electric meter and switch 1 breaker at a time leaving the one you just shut off in the off position until you cut them all off. Should the meter still be moving you have a main service cable shorting somewhere call the power company to advise you further if this is the problem.. Should just cutting the circuit breaker for the hot water heater stop the noise and down the hot water line is not hot then you are probably wasting power due to a thermostat or element inside the hot water heater.. Thank you j

Need to buy American Water Heater Polaris, 6903768


Make sure you install it correctly. If not can cause exhaust leak and destroy everything in the blower compartment. I have over 450 Polaris heaters installed. "Read the instructions". Depending on which burner gasket you have determines if you will need to use the provided gasket. If the gasket is a graphite type, you need to check and make sure the surface where the hot surface igniter seals against it. The gasket can be missing some pieces, so check carefully. The bracket "must" be installed properly. Again the instructions with the igniter show the correct installation.

Can I replace the igniter on my rheem water heater RHLP


1) Rheem does not post service manuals for their brands of tankless, or tank-type water heater:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html
Replace the thing:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html#install

2) Probably you can call Rheem and give model and serial number and they will send part.
However, based on responses at fixya, Rheem most likely will not send instructions.
Rheem does not want customers repairing gas appliances.

3) Go to Bosch website, and track down their service bulletins for possible assistance

Premier Plus Model#MHE62-30H-045DV Ser#45T421608 I just purchased this hot water heater.I had it professionally installed by a plumber.We had hot water before I went to bed but when I woke in the morning...


sounds like you have a power problem. or worst than that a leak . So lets look at the leak first. Turn off the water supply at the water heater on top. This valve should be on the cold side of the heater on top.

Turn it off, check and see if you have pressure in the house by turning on a faucet. It should run for a second then stop. That is good if it does. Leave the valve off on the heater and check that your breaker is on. Reset the breaker by turning it on and off.

Wait about 2 hours turn the heater back on and check to see how hot the water is hot then you might have a leak in the building. If there is not or little hot water. Check the wires where it connects to the water heater. You might only have one wire that is connected right.

The best thing to do is to get a amo meter and check to see if you have 220 if you dont have 220 you will not warm up the water the way it should.

Thanks Richard

GE (Rheem) SmartShield Water Heater. it rained on the hot water heater and now the pilot won't light. Any ideas?


Does it have an electric ignition? If so, remove the pilot light access panel, blow inside the chamber with a hair dryer. Do this until there is no more moisture inside. Then follow the lighting instructions. Try this even if it's a match start. Thanks and please rate.

7-25-11. Purchased Reliance 909 model 950 GKRT 200 natural gas hot water heater. 7-31-11, installed said hot water heater according to instructions and code, filled with cold water and checked for gas and...


The problem requires looking at manual and service handbook, except handbook doesn't show most recent water heater.
My first check point would be gas supply, and then vent draft, and then air supply.
Take off front cover and try lighting again to make sure air supply is not problem.
Review lighting instructions.
If there is no gas, and gas is turned ON, then gas control valve is suspect.

Ge mod.pde18lzpbww.defrost tray ice buildup every


Remove the rear panel inside the freezer . Defrost the drain tray whr=ere the drain hole is until water will flow down it . Hot water sometimes helps . Use a small hose inserted into the drain and blow out any debris . Get a Solid ALUMINUM wire about 9 inches long (14-16 guage) and put into the hole as far as possible without using force (bend the wire if necessary) and make a hook with the other end ahich you should hook onto the defrost heater . This ALUMINUM wire will keep the drain hole cleared of ice due to the transfer of heat from the glass defrost heater . Do not make the hook too tight for fear of breaking the glass covering on the heater .
