i have a GE Smart Model 244882. I recently bought a Rheem tuneup kit but the heating element looks like this one. The one with the kit does not get my water hot enough (56 gal). What was removed looks just like this fold-back. Can this just be inserted after removing the other element without removing any of the new kit elements already in place?
Asked by: Berry
Please contact our customer support line at 800-431-1549 with both the serial number and model number of your water heater to determine the proper parts for your unit.

Asked by: Devine622
Yes this element will work with your model.

do you have to empty the tank to install?

Asked by: BF
You only have to drain the tank to just below the element port.
