My water heater is sideways on the ceiling can this be installed on its side?

My water heater is sideways on the ceiling can this be installed on its side?
Asked by: Wishes
No - these water heaters are designed to be placed with the base down on a stand or floor. You will need to find a water heater that is designed for installation on its side. I have had this water heater for over a year and so far very pleased with it. No problems. It has great insulation, which helps keep the water heated longer and cut down on electric consumption. I placed the base on a stand with a pan underneath, which you can find at Home Depot, connected the water leak sensor, then placed sensor on bottom of pan around heater. If leak is detected, the sensor will shut off electricity. I have not used the wi-fi capabilities, which is nice, but at this point I do not need.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst. We are waiting for our third XE40M12EC55U1 to be installed in as many years. The first one leaked after two years. The second one developed a perpetual A103 (fill tank / dry fire) error after a year that will not resolve after replacing every single replaceable part on the unit. Will the third time be the charm? I'm not holding my breath. What happened, Rheem? You used to have such a good reputation.

I've only had this hot water heater for about 2 months; so far it is working well. We (the maintenance dept.) use it a lot; so I will not know how well it holds up until it's about a couple of years old.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I just got this water heater and my hot water stinks, I called and they told me to call next week... I just got this water heater and my hot water stinks, I called and they told me to call next week. I have to rinse my dishes with bottled water. It gags me to take a shower the smell of the hot water makes you sick. I never had this problem before. So I went down stairs and started looking at my new water heater Model # XE50M12EC45U0 Internet #206282270 wondering if I have the right water heater since nothing is stamped in the metal there was a tag where the cereal numbers numbers are that looked like it was just put on and there were lines marked on it with a magic marker., so I went up stairs and looked at what I ordered it said Product Depth (in.) 22.25 so I measured it and it was 26 inches in diameter. There was none on there that was this wide.What really made me wonder was it didn't say it come with the 2.1 gal. Pre-Pressurized Steel Water Expansion Tank I did see a cheaper one that came with it and it was not 12 yrs. Who knows what you are getting any one can put a new label on. ( I don't think I got what I paid for ) I will will never shop at Home Depot again and Ashley told me to call next week to make an appointment for the Stinky Water (.I can't recommend this product because ( I don't think I got it.) It didn't say it came with the 2.1 gal. Pre-Pressurized Steel Water Expansion Tank and the diameter was 26 inches this was supposed to be 22.25. I gave you a bad rating because ( I don't think I got what I paid for) and Ashley told me to call back next week to make an appointment for the stinky water. Never again will I shop at Home Depot.
