Questions & Answers

If I use this on a 110 volt circuit, will it work and will the wattage be reduced by half ?

If I use this on a 110 volt circuit, will it work and will the wattage be reduced by half ?
Asked by: bobz
I believe the answer you received is incorrect. This heater has a single element which means there is one resistive circuit. It has a fixed ohms value of 12.8 ohms (volts squared divided by watts = ohms). When operated on 120V the output will drop to 25% of the rated 4500 watts. You can check this by using ohms law: http://www.ohmslawcalculator.com/ohms-law-calculator

Will this fit rheem serial # 1210270392

Asked by: Jray
I am unable to find this serial # on the Rheem website. It is best to look it up by model number or, even better, actual part number of the element itself (this is what we use for cross referencing parts to Camco/Everbilt parts). This item should fit in any standard model Rheem water heater that requires a 4500W 240V element. Always check the plate on the water heater to confirm the required wattage and voltage of the element before installing the replacement element.
