Rated 1 out of 5 by from Be careful of this water heater! This was installed by a great company under contract by Home Depot. The unit installed worked great, lots of hot water and heated up quickly. I wasn't aware of some of the features, now I wish I was because I probably wouldn't have purchased it. Apparently this model and maybe other models have sensors. I always think of this things like automobile "thing" that they add on, sensors, power this, power that...just things to go wrong. So apparently the sensor in question is questionable on reliability. After 6 months it started shutting down, seriously I thought this is what we are trying to avoid, the problem of a malfunctioning heater. So it started to flash 7 times then pause, then 7 times, then pause etc. Apparently the problem is "Flammable vapor sensor lockout" due to something that will catch fire. Nothing has changed in the room, I've left the door open to ensure air movement but still going into this state. Now the kick in the , rear pants, apparently Rheem has decided to not cover this part under warranty! The sensor has a history of failing so what do they do, not warranty and the owner is on the tab. All we wanted was a hot water heater, it didn't need sensors (like power windows on a car, power locks etc.) we just wanted a water heater that we could count on. Now Rheem wants customers to contact them first before any warranty work is performed so they can say "nay or yah" not what I call good customer service. The manual doesn't give instructions on how to reset the unit!!! What the "devils home"? I haven't contacted them yet as considering all our options at this point. But having to reset the water heater 4 or more times a day to keep hot water is extremely frustrating!

They never seem to be on but the water is always hot. I installed them two months ago. I like the electric start feature that precludes the need for a pilot light. They work perfectly. I recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Water Heater Easy to install. Works great. Lots of hot water. Shout out to the Sarnia store - Our old water heater died on a Saturday and they did a great job getting the new one ready for pick up on the same day during the pandemic. We installed it Saturday night and it is running great! Thanks Sarnia Home Depot!

With regards to the water fittings, will the female threaded end of a  Sharkbite SS3088FLEX18LF Corrugated Stainless Steel Water Heater Connector, 3/4- Inch SB x 3/4-Inch FIP attach to the threaded male water intake and outlet? 

Asked by: Paul
If it is the same tread as the hot water tank it should work.

I have two questions.  The first is fairly simple, I am presuming that this unit can simply replace an atmospheric unit so long as there is a 120v outlet available for the damper/ignition?

Asked by: Paul
Yes, I replaced mine with no issue

What is the Rheem Model # for this hot water tank? Does it have an anode rod? Does it have a flue damper? What is the tank material to allow a 12 year warranty?

Asked by: Benton
Thank you for asking. The Rheem model number is XG40S12DM40C0. The tank comes with a magnesium anode rod and the tank is glass lined.

I understand it comes with a power transformer, so the unit itself is not using 110V AC straight. Can someone check what the output voltage / amperage of the transformer is (i.e. something like 110AC -> 12V DC 1A). Thanks!

Does the 40 gal performance platinum water heater have heat traps built in?

Asked by: J Nick
It has a power vent that traps heat in for better efficiency... I installed the water heater over a year ago and just had to wire up an out let close to it to power the vent (110 Volts) I have been incredibly happy with it so far ... lots of hot water and very quiet

My new Rheem Performance Platnium 40 gal gas water heater make very loud rumbling noise each time it starts to fire up the gas to heat the water. Is this normal? It has done this since day one. Is something wrong with the burner?

Asked by: Felix
Hi Gatz, How quiet is yours? Mine make loud burner noise when the gas ignites and the noise keep going until it stops heating up the water. My old GE from Home Depot make the burner noise when it started up and the noise came down and not noticeable until it finished heating. My neighbour has a two year old Rheem 40 gal. which sound the same as my old GE.
