Question about Rheem 30 GAL ELEC SHORT Water Heater 6YR SC 82SV302
Cut power off and take off cover to reveil element with number on it's side to give you info to get another one rated the same to go back in.
Make sure power supply is off to water heater and then turn water off to water heater. Then open a faucet's hot side and connect a water hose to drain and drain down water out of water heater to keep from getting water on floor. After heater is drained you are now ready to remove wires and element with a socket 1 3/8 "..
Replace new element in place and turn water back on and fill heater back up with all air out of system before cutting power on. Once air is out and water running from all facuet's hot sides throughout house now you can turn power back on.
One more thing when draining tank if it doesn't want to drain good open lever on relief valve to allow water drain faster.
