Sorry, I don't know the answer to this question but Rheem, or whoever manufacturers Rheem would. I would give them a call. Even competitive manufacturers can be helpful with parts cross matching so you could try that.

can it be converted to propane

Asked by Djralo April 20, 2021
2
Answers

As an ultra low nox device, the metering of gas is much more highly tuned than your typical gas burning appliance. Normally, or in the old days, swapping out a couple of jets and perhaps a change of a few other parts was all that was necessary. This device is treated by state EPA and CARB much the same as an automobile with regard to authorized modifications. It has received certification in its original configuration for intended use only. The manufacturer may have implemented a secondary recertification for this unit with modified metering components installed, but that would be very unusual and highly unlikely.

How much to installation

Answers

Raheem is a good water heater for the money, the last one I had had a 6 year Warrantee and it lasted 6 years. One thing to watch out for is it has a plastic drain line and you can buy them with that already cracked! So before you install it like I did, check it and make sure it’s not cracked.

No hot water
Our old water heater started leaking so we needed a new hot water heater fast and luckily Home Depot was able to get out the next day. The installer sent by Home Depot was great and did a great job. Unfortunately, the unit is not even a week old and the water heater stopped working. The pilot is on then turns off. We turn it on then it shuts off again. Of course my husband comes home dirty from work and now has no hot water for a shower. This is the second defective major home appliance we have purchased that is defective. We are NEVER using home depot again.

It's a good water heater but I really think it's a very bad idea to have a completely flat bottom. There is no standoff or even rim to pull the metal bottom off the floor. This means even a small amount of moisture has no way of easily evaporating. Most other heaters have legs or ridges to allow air circulation. Hopefully it won't rust. Overall I like the reem products but this seems like a crucial flaw.

just installed a couple of weeks ago, everything seems to be working great. I started on the high setting but it was to hot so now it's set on low which it great, way more efficient that my 20 yr old one. When you light the pilot the first time you need to look upwards through the glass window to see that it's lit.

Delivered, installed, $1500 later and not a drop of hot water
Delivered and professionally installed. Sensor didnt work not once giving an error 9 code. Called rheem customer support sucked but luckily my professional installer told them send the sensor or he takes back the water heater to get another. Rheems home troubleshooting of a subpar product stopped right away and they will be sending a new sensor. Not suprised rheems customer support hardly knew english or anything about water heaters.... Im sure it will all work fine in the near future but if i would have known a new unit for 1500.00 i would still have to wait 4 days for hot water i would have bought a different brand somewhere else so my wife and newborn have warm water. As for the installer id give him 5 stars as he knew what he was doing and couldnt have changed the outcome.

Bad thermocoupler out if the box
Everything hooked up as planned. But would only run for a minute before it would shut off and the led would flash red. Called support and was on hold for 32 minutes. End result is they’re going to send me a new part and have a technician call me. Estimating the repair to be 3 or 4 days from now. No hot water for 3 or 4 days on equipment I bought 5 hours ago. Not awesome
