Question
Hi I have a year old RHEEM Electric hot water heater.  The heater is not working, no hot water, no sounds etc.  Im getting electricity to the heater and the reset button never tripped.  Please help, Rheem is closed Thank you Ken.

Answer
Ken, Check all your wire connections at the elements. Also , each element has a reset button, be sure they aren't tripped. If all else fails, replace the thermostat and elements. If it is only a year old, it may still be under warranty. Contact the supplier or installer or consult the installation manual..
