Q:

what size wrench/socket is needed to remove heating element? 153329460 Kenmore Water heater

A:

Thank you for being Sears’ valued member and for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about your Kenmore water heater model 153329460. I am so sorry the heating element needs to be replaced. I will be happy to help you with this.

Safety Warning: Be sure to disconnect the power before you start your repair to prevent risk of electrical shock injury.

You will need a 1-1/2” socket to remove the element. Drain the water from the tank before removing the element. Once you have installed the new element, It is very important you do not restore power to the water heater until the tank has been refilled with water. Failure to refill the tank could result in damage to the top element. It must be submerged in water or else it will overheat and burn out.

I hope this answers your question. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

Thank you for your question.

I should be able to help you with replacing the anode in the water heater. First, turn the water supply off and drain some of the water in the tank. I recommend having a helper when trying to replace the anode rod. (preferably a helper with long arms) Have the helper hold the tank stationary while you use the breaker bar to loosen the anode rod. Once broke loose remove the old rod and insert the new one making sure to use Teflon tape on the treads. I have found a video that should help you. Please click here to watch the Video .

If you need to order the new anode rod you can do so from our parts website: Sears Parts Direct .

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair of the water heater.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

A:

The water heater you are describing does not have an electronic control panel that would likely be the cause of the beeping. This is not something that usually occurs with this unit. Please resubmit your question with additional details to help us solve your problem. Please included the area of the water heater where the beeping is coming from.
