I don't see a service manual posted on internet.
Without a service manual showing ohm-readings for testing different parts, you are left guessing which part is problem.
Most water heater manuals today recommend yearly service to catch up on most causes for failure including air in fuel line, dirty or corroded burner parts, defective sensor, loose connection, etc.

1) Anode rod is located on top of water heater.
It is 1-1/6" hex head.
It might be under a plastic plug, or you might have to take off metal top of tank.
Sometimes you cannot remove anode rod because it is rusted too badly.
I have used impact wrench sometimes and been unable to budge them.

3) Rusty water implies that anode is bad.
But water released by TP valve implies overheating, or bad TP valve.

4) Replace TP valve.

5) Check your burner and combustion parts for orange-or-yellow flame and sooting on parts that implies the water heater needs to be cleaned. You do not want overheated combustion chamber to cause ECO event that might require new gas control thermostat.
Gas should burn with clear blue flame.

6) Overheating tank can also imply that gas control valve thermostat is not working correctly and may soon fail. This would be evidenced if water is very hot and new TP valve doesn't stop hot water release.

Look real close in area of where the back of it should be inside for a panel with screws, or one that will lift up. You may have to remove a few screws but access should be possible.

I have no hot water, how do I change the filter in a Bock Water Heater 32E 32 gal oil-fired hot water heater ?


Unfortunately, looking at the manual for the water heater, the filter is a separate item. And the recommended Delavan line filter page just shows a picture and part numbers of the item, not how to remove it.
I suspect it works in such a way that you hold the end nut portion and turn the large nut portion with open end wrenches. You will need the internal filter replacement and possibly new seals, probably in a kit.

Line Filter

You'll want to turn off the power to the oil pump so you don't make a large mess.

Random banging and whooshing sound


New water heater?
http://waterheatertimer.org/New-water-heater-making-noise.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Repair-water-heater-valve.html
Water does not compress. So each faucet has air chamber located behind wall. Air chamber is usually just a vertical piece of pipe about 18" long with a cap so it never fills with water. When water flows... all the water back to the main supply begins to move toward the faucet. The weight of this water can be considerable. When faucet is turned off, the whole column of water suddenly stops, but weight of water is still pushing forward.
Without air chambers to cushion the sudden stop of water weight, the pipes bang and rattle. With air chambers, the weight of the water pushes up into the air chamber causing the air to compress, which silently cushions the weight of water, but also causes a push-back when water stops moving forward. The push back can then move water backwards where it compresses air inside another air chamber. So the water can slosh back and forth.
IF you have factory-installed heat traps on your water heater, these things have rubber baffles. The baffles hum and rattle and whistle and clog and cause strange sounds that carry through the pipes and water heater and wood joists etc. The water sloshing back and forth can move the baffles and cause noise.
Or maybe you have a check valve that has gotten loose.

What is the purpose of the magnesium rod inside the water heater (bock)


These anode rods, sometimes made from aluminum, prevent corrosion. The rod emits ions that line the tank and help prevent corrosion. The rod isn't solid magnesium or aluminum; it has an iron core. If your hot water smells of sulfur (rotten eggs), the anode rod has gone bad or there is a presence of hydrogen sulfur gas that is overwhelming the rod. Usually replacing the rod will stop the odor, but sometimes chlorination of the tank is necessary.

How do i clean out my system for my oil hot water heater? some how we ran out of oil, i guess we used way too much oil, it usually lasts until november but went out mid sept, i had oil delivered and now it...


It sounds to me like you probably have a clogged oil nozzle. Of course I'm am assuming that you bleed all the air out of the oil lines that run both to the hot water tank and the heating appliance. If you have solid flow at the water heater pump, and the unit still does not ignite, it is most likely the nozzle. Hope this helps

My boiler will not reset and the green light keeps flashing


The nozzle on the burner is probably clogged. Have a service tech who is qualified look at the burner. Pressing the reset button repeatedly will fill up the chamber with oil and create a dangerous situation.
