Check that serial number.
Rheem is first two digits= month and next two digits= year, which means 1990.

Rheem energy miser. Model 81v52d c, 50 gal. Is not heating any water. I don't have the manual for it to see what troubleshooting options there are.


The water heater was taken out to tile the floor and put back in 2 days later. It has power but is not heating the water. Can you help?
