Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the electrical cover. Unfortunately, the cover is not available. I have checked several models. If there is a used appliance store in the area, you may want to check with them to see if they may have a cover available that will work. Another possibility will be to check with the local hardware store for a small section of sheet metal. You can then cut it, to make a close fit. If there is no way to use a screw to secure the sheet metal in place, some duct tape will work fine, to hold it in place. I hope this will help you.

Thank you for your question. I understand your concern about the anode rod. This water heater does have an anode rod (# 3 in picture). With most water heaters, the port for the anode rod will be covered with insulation. To access it, the insulation will need to be pulled back. I would not recommend doing this unless the anode rod needs to be replaced. The top does not need to be taken off. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Q:

What is wrong and what can be done about water coming out the discharge from then temperature/pressure relief valve on my model 153316454 water heater?

A:

If water is coming out the relief valve then it will need to be replaced.

You don't mention if the valve started leaking on its own or did it start leaking when the valve was manually operated. See the information in the images below for more information on this.

In either case if the valve continues to leak then turn off the cold water supply to the heater, turn off the power to the water heater and drain the tank and replace the relief valve.

If the valve started leaking after being manually released then replacing the valve might be do-it-yourself. If the valve started leaking on it's own without being manually activated then I would suggest a technician check the unit. The relief valve opening on its own might indicate a thermostat or some other failure causing the leak. For this type of problem I'd suggest a technician check and repair the problem.

The relief valve is a safety feature and I would only suggest you try to replace it yourself if you're extremely confident in your skills and then only if it failed while being manually operated.

I hope this information is helpful to you.
