Question about Rheem 40 GAL ELEC TALL Water Heater 6YR SC 82VH402
Just bought a kenmore power miser electric water heater and it came with two elements and three wires (blue, black and yellow). I only have two wires coming out of the wall (white and black). It is a 220 system for the water heater as i checked and have 120 coming from both wires. Do I hook up both the black and blue from water heater to the black out of wall and the yellow to the white?
Hello,You are correct! Black/blue=black & Yellow=white 220volt single phase power.There are 3 wires for 3 phase power connection NOT the case in a home.Also an "off peak"timer option would use (black) only controlling the bottom element and (blue) controlling the top element.
