Common Kenmore water heater repair issues we solve

Our experts are ready to handle Kenmore water heater issues big and small. Property owners should schedule an appointment at the first sign of trouble. During a water heater service call, our experts will diagnose the problem, make repairs fast, and recommend routine maintenance options for your system.

If you have an older Kenmore system, they'll also be able to suggest affordable replacements that might also improve your overall efficiency.

Water heater leaking

Hot water heaters shouldn't leak. A leaking Kenmore water heater can signal a damaged drain valve or indicate a larger problem. The knowledgeable technicians at Sears Home Services can help you determine if repairs are possible, or if you'll need to buy a new appliance. Drain valves are often easy to replace as a first effort, but depending on the age of the Kenmore water heater, the maintenance services teams can usually tell when it's time to buy a new water heater.

Water heater not getting hot

Sediment build-up and corrosion in older Kenmore water heaters can affect the water temperature. If you're dealing with water that doesn't seem to get hot, there are several things that an experienced technician will check. In addition to checking for sentiment, they'll look for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers that may be easy repairs on your appliance.

Water heater getting too hot

A hot Kenmore water heater isn't always a good thing. It can be an early indication that the unit is leaking or breaking down. In a Kenmore water heater, it can indicate that there's a faulty thermostat or heating element, stuck pressure relief valve, or sediment affecting the heating elements.

Schedule maintenance with Sears Home Services if you suspect an issue with the temperature of your water or Kenmore system.

Low flow water heater

Low water pressure in a Kenmore water heater can be caused by a number of factors. Like we've already pointed out, sediment is an issue. Not only does it affect the water heater unit itself, but it can clog shower heads and tap filters.

Water pressure issues are also caused by leaks, water supply line damage, and a faulty tempering valve. Our expert technicians at Sears Home Services can investigate all causes and help restore expected water flow and improve water pressure.

Noisy water heater

Kenmore water heaters make some sounds that are expected and normal, but if the sounds seem to have changed dramatically over time, or the noises are very loud, schedule an appointment for service. A Sears Home Services specialist can help check for issues and help identify what's causing the noises.

Water heater maintenance

Seek regular service on your Kenmore water heater to help ensure that it'll work efficiently and effectively for a long time. Routine Kenmore water heater maintenance can prevent property owners from costly, unexpected repairs over time.

Homeowners can extend the life of their Kenmore water heater with routine maintenance. The experts at Sears Home Services can also help you learn more about the Systems Check-up package and Home Warranty options.

Kenmore water heater repair FAQ

Is it better to fix or replace a Kenmore water heater?

Many factors need to be considered when you're making repairs to an older Kenmore water heater. The age of the water heater and the type of repair can influence whether or not it makes sense to replace the entire system. Some repairs, such as a leaky valve, are easy and affordable, but if you have a water heater older than 13 years, you're likely already on borrowed time. Upgrading your system can improve overall efficiency and even lower your utility bills.

How much does a plumber charge to replace a thermocouple on a Kenmore water heater?

The thermocouple on a Kenmore water heater is an affordable repair. Plumbing services usually cost around $150 when done by a qualified specialist from Sears Home Services. They'll be best able to estimate the job once they confirm your water heater model.

Time spent on diagnostic work for a Kenmore water heater really depends on the type of issue you're having with your system. Our experienced and knowledgeable technicians service thousands of water heaters every year, so they know what to look for if you can describe the issue you're having.

Be sure to note if the water is too hot, too cold, or low-pressure. That information that will help them to identify the problem.
