Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gas hot water tank “BUYER BEWARE” This tank was purchased on August 5th 2021. On Aug 21, 2021 The new hot water tank was installed. As we were getting ready to start it we were getting an error code of seven blinks indicating system locked as per the trouble shooting guide. Leaving it sit for the night and trying again in the morning. On Aug 22, 2021 At 8:30 am I tried to re-start and no success. At 9am I called the (1-866-279-4566) as indicated on the label of the hot water tank an spoke with a technician witch guided me to resetting the error by turning the power switch “On” and cycling the temperature control from low temp to high temp 7 times. As this did not resolve the issue we proceeded to unplug the unit waiting 1 minute and doing the pre-said steps over. This did not clear the issue and then was informed that the (FVS) flammable vapour sensor was not under warranty and that I could purchase one from them at a fee or return the tank to the place of purchase. The following link was sent to me from Rheem.com Below are links to order your parts from the Rheem Parts web store: SP20172: Click here to order SP20172 FV Sensor Kit If you have any problems with your order, please call 1-800-621-5622 option 3 or reply to this email and someone will assist you. Thanks, Rheem Parts Division As I was not satisfied with Rheem’s reply I called Home Depot Help line and a ticket was opened on my behalf. On August 23rd I proceeded to call Home Depot from were I purchased the tank and left 2 message for management to return my call. As a call was returned they were able to help by supplying me with a replacement one from their stock. Thanks to Ken for your help. Home Depot Timmins

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replaced a 12yr old GSW Ordering and picking up was pretty straight forward. The unit looks nice, I will never look at it. The power vent is quite a bit noisier than the one I replaced. If I can get 10 yrs out of it without repair or replacement I will be happy with it.

The Home Depot CA website lists this Rheem model 685410 40 gal as a 62" tall. The 50 gal unit is also shown as 62 tall. I would think the 40 gal model would be shorter? Is this a misprint on the web page?

Asked by: Ron1
The shape of the heater is a cylinder. Since the diameter of the cylinder is reduced substantially by 2 inches, the ht must increase to compensate and get a volume of 40gals. Use the simple formula for the volume of a cylinder which is area of base x height. Just elementary math.

Hello. Is it possible to rotate the power vent to face the other direction? It currently faces to the front so the air inlet is over the control panel. My existing has the inlet to the back my that is also where I have an inlet pipe to the outside.

Asked by: Ryan
I don't think so, but I woulld suggest you phone the manufacturer to be sure. You could also turn the tank around.
