Question and Answers

Q:

Anode

A:

Thank you for your question. This model does not show to have an anode rod. However, it does appear to have a place where one can be installed. It shows to have a third space in the top (see image). If there is plug under this access port, this is where the anode will be inserted. The anode that can be used is # 9001453 and is available at Sears PartsDirect. 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.

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the elements. The thread size will be the same for both elements. The 3800 watt element for this water heater is # 9002500. This is a standard element used on many water heaters. If one of the elements was different, you may want to have it exchanged. 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.

Thank you for your question on the water heaters causing a high power bill.

I understand your concern and see the reason why you want to lower that power bill.

Most of the new water heaters are set for 120 degrees from the factory.

If the thermostats on your water heater are non-adjustable then they are set at 120 degrees.

You could check the water temperature at the sink with a thermometer to see how hot the water is.

It may be possible to purchase thermostats that are adjustable but if you have a dishwasher it will not work with water colder than 120 degrees.

I would suggest that you have you electric company come out and check the water heater to make sure it is operating correctly.

You can also wrap the water heater in a blanket to help retain the heat as well heat traps on the outgoing hot water line.

Most of the power companies with do an assessment of possible causes for a high bill.

It may be a bad element in the water heater.

You may have to clear any different wiring changes with the local electrical code and the power company.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
