SOURCE: We have a 83 Gal. Rheem 41V50 40,000 Btu - What do

Is this unit shared with other households? 83 gallons is a lot.

I would say that a 40 gallon fast recovery gas or electric should take care of the needs of a family of 4 or so.

If you do this, you will notice a big change in your utility bill!

SOURCE: I have a rheem 41v50 water heater its leaking out

If the water heater itself is leaking it most likely cannot be repaired. If it's leaking at the presure/temp relief valve it could possibly be dangerous and needs immediate attention. If it's the pipes leading to the water heater then it's most likely worth repairing. If the tank is old and rusty it's best to replace it. If it's fairly new it might still be under a manufactures warantee. The last I knew Rheem had warantees up to 11 years, depending on the model water heater. With out actually looking at the water heater it's almost impossible to give a more definite answer, I hope this helped.

If it is leaking out the top it would be best to replace it. just check the fittings and make sure they are not leaking and running in the heater. Try to dry it up as much as possible if it is around any fittings.

But if you can see it's coming from the tank it would be best to replace because it will need replacing later even if it could be plugged temporary now.

SOURCE: Rheem NatGas hot water heater model 41V50,

At the controls there should be a knob that says " Pilot"... "ON" Turn the knob to pilot and hold it down while lighting the pilot lite. Keep holding it down until it gets warm enough that when you leave it up the pilot stays on. Once the pilot lite stays on on it's own turn it to on.

I have a 650 delta thermostatic gas combination control on a Rheem hot water heater that won't turn to to the proper pilot or off position to relight it. We have looked everywhere for trouble shootin


Jennifer, the instructions posted by Rheems on the heater are wrong. You must first rotate the dial clockwise, use force (in our our case) to get the pilot to its position. The folks at Rheems are nuts not to check their instructions before printing them and plastering them on their hot water tanks. Disgraceful, period.

I have Rheem model 41V50 leaking from the top...The top is a lid with screw....can I buy and replace the top ?


No.
Replace tank.
Buy 40 gallon from local Lowes and install yourself.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

Under thin metal shell is a welded steel tank, surrounded by insulation and then covered with painted metal shell. The shell is what you look at.
The inside steel tank is made to withstand high pressure expansion that comes with heating water.
The steel tank has rusted out.
Turn gas control valve to vacation, so pilot light stays on, and then only heat enough water as needed until you can replace tank.

Prevent next tank from rusting by replacing anode rod, and ground water pipes.

You don't need to find the same exact model to replace your water heater, any 50 gallon water heater will do unless you have a brand specification that you like to stick with.

Water heater leaking


Yes, you will need a new heater. The inner tank has rusted thru and it is way cheeper to replace the whole water heater than trying to fix the old one.
