Questions & Answers

How to vent

Asked by: Russell
Very easy. Turn off the water supply valve to the tank. Connect a common garden hose to the spigot on the side of the tank (near the bottom and near the white electronic control unit. Open any of your faucets in the house to let air in during the draining process. Turn the plastic spigot know counter clockwise about 1 revolution. You will hear the water draining.

6 month old heater makes popping noise when burner is firing

Asked by: Schwindt27
I have noticed this and it doesn't seem to be excessive or a hazard. I suspect that the heat from the flame is causing the metal parts to expand slightly, but enough that they are flexing some of the fasteners that hold them together. If this is the case, it would be normal operation, I think.

Red light is blinking on dial what does that mean?

Asked by: nuzzy
If it is blinking just once every 5 seconds, or so, this is normal. If it blinks several times in series within 5 seconds, then there is a problem with the electronic control valve. I just replaced mine. See my comment from June 10 2017.

Customer Reviews

Performance 50 Gal. Tall 6 Year 38,000 BTU Natural Gas Water Heater is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 557.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I had the same experience as some of the other commentators. Purchased in November 2014. The Hone... I had the same experience as some of the other commentators. Purchased in November 2014. The Honeywell electronic control valve failed in June of 2017. I called the technical support number and the man entered my serial number in his computer which immediately identified a known problem with the valve. He sent a new valve to me by Fedex and it arrived the next morning. I installed in about 1.5 hours, including draining, refilling and reconnecting all pipes. Seems to be working ok now. So, this was a very disappointing and inconvenient experience. But the fast response of Rheem and their no-questions-asked, no charge policy makes it acceptable for now. I hope this heater will last much longer than the warranty as all of my previous heaters have. I'm not yet sure that I would recommend Rheem based on my experience so far. Let's wait and see what else happens.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Quality. Do not Buy! Most 4 or 5 star reviews are for newly installed units but my review is for a unit that has been used for some time. Only after the gas heater has been used for a period of time can you truly find out about its quality. My Rheem was Made in Mexico and it stopped working after 3 years of use. The water heater was under very light use. The cost to hire a licensed technician to make the repair comes out to about half the cost of purchasing a new unit. Warranty does not cover labor because of the of time that has lapsed. The technician said that with their experience they do not recommend this make. The water heater that was in place prior to the Rheem worked for decades without any issue. I do not know why these new water heaters have so many problems.
