Common Rheem water heater repair issues we solve

The repair experts at Sears Home Services handle Rheem water heater problems big and small. You can count on us to help at the first sign of an issue, or if the heater is flooding your home. During a water heater service call, our experts will diagnose your plumbing needs, make repairs fast, and recommend routine maintenance options.

Water heater leaking

A leaking Rheem water heater can signal a damaged drain valve, or be a sign of 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 Rheem water heater, the maintenance services teams can usually tell when it's time to buy a new water heater.

Water heater not getting hot

Dealing with cold water? Sediment build-up and corrosion in the Rheem water heater can affect the water temperature. This is more common in older Rheem water heaters. When the technicians are checking your water heater, they'll also look for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers that may be easy repairs on your appliance.

Water heater getting too hot

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

Contact Sears Home Services to schedule maintenance if you suspect an issue with the temperature of your water or Rheem system.

Low flow water heater

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

Water pressure issues can also be caused by leaks, blocked filters, or a faulty tempering valve. Water supply lines can also get kinked if the Rheem water heater has shifted. A specialist from Sears Home Services can investigate all possible causes and help restore expected water flow and improve water pressure.

Noisy water heater

Rheem water heaters can generate all kinds of noises. Sometimes these sounds are expected and normal, other times they're a cause for concern. If the sounds produced by your Rheem water heater seem to have changed dramatically over time, or the noises are very loud like popping or hammering, schedule an appointment with a Sears Home Services specialist so they can help check for issues.

Water heater maintenance

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

Rheem water heater repair FAQ

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

Recommendations will vary depending on the age of the Rheem water heater and the type of repair. Many repairs, such as a leaky valve, can be easy and affordable, but if you have an older system with compounding issues, the technician will help you weigh the options so you can make an informed decision.

If your water heater is 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 Rheem water heater?

The thermocouple on a Rheem water heater is an affordable piece. 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.

How much does it cost to diagnose a Rheem water heater?

Time spent on diagnostic work for a Rheem 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, and that will help them to identify the root problem.

How long does it take to replace a Rheem water heater?

Sears Home Services offers Rheem water heater installation, and can get the job done pretty fast.

What is the life expectancy of a Rheem water heater?

Rheem water heaters last 8 to 12 years on average. A water heater that receives regular maintenance is more likely to last longer. Similarly, a water heater that has ongoing, unresolved issues may have a shorter lifespan due to sediment buildup due to the type of water in your home.
