Question about Rheem 40 Gallon FVR NATGAS Low WATER HEATER 6YR 22V40SF
Posted by Anonymous on
SOURCE: dripping from drain spout
If you are refering to the "Dripping coming from the preasure tempature valve,Then just turn off the valve where the water goes into the heater and open the P/T valve with a bucket below it draining only emought water to get below the level where it reaches. Normally the drain valves are plastic with a Male hosebib attached. Attach a garden hose to the rain and run it out to a point lower that the vaslve in order for gravity to drain the tank.The valve opens counter clock wise. If the valve is stuck or does not drain,and you have a foor drain handy,remove the whole valve and replace it with a boiler drain valve. If The tank is located below the drain level then you will have to either pump or carry the drain water to the higher level. Replace the P/T valve and reinstall the associated associated piping. I would use tefelon tape on the P/T pipe theads. You may have to open a hot water faucet in order for the air to replace the water in the tank ,in order to drain.

If you are not familiar with the element, I would get someone that is familiar with one and have them do it. It's not something I would recommend you do based on your question. There's electrical, pressurized water tank, and a whole lot of water that may cause you to have a worse bad day.

Flashing code 76 is lost communication between the remote and the burner control assembly CCA (circuit card assembly). The CCA is still under warranty if purchased within the last 3 yrs. Contact Rheem customer service and have your Mod. and S/N available....explain to the agent you are recieving - flashing code 76...they'll walk you through the process.
