Q:

How to replacing Dip Tube and anode? 153330451 Kenmore Power miser 10 gas water heater

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the water heater water not being hot. I know how frustrating that is to have happen. 

I agreee with your assumption of the dip tube causing the issue. If the dip tube was defective, it would allow the cold water to dilute the hot water and cause it to run out quick or only be warm versus hot. 

If you are replacing the dip tube, and give the age of the unit, I would recommend to also replace the anode rod. Both parts are pretty easy to replace, so I wouldn't anticipate any issues for installation. You've already taken a good step by watching YouTube videos on the installation, which is highly recommended before tackling the project. 

The part number for the dip tube is 9002444, and the part number for the anode is 9001829. They can be purchased at the Sears Parts site whenever needed.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Thank you for your question. I know it's frustrating when the hot water heater stops working. The information you have received from Aashe is very good but it will not pertain to this older water heater. This model will not have the arrestor. However, it could still be a problem with the vent or the ventilation to the unit. It could also be a problem with the gas valve or low gas pressure. I strongly recommend having a technician check and make the necessary repair. When not working properly, a water heater can be very dangerous. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Can I replace the thermostat easily?

A:

Per the previous answer: The thermostat is built into the gas valve # F145-1277, which means the gas valve will have to be replaced. It's available at SearsPartsDirect . It's not difficult to replace the valve but the water will need to be drained from the tank before it's replaced. Also be sure to turn the gas supply valve off before starting. Disconnect the gas lines and thermocouple from the existing valve and you will be able to remove the valve. Twist it counterclockwise to remove it. Usually a large pair of channel lock pliers or a pipe wrench will be needed to get the valve loose. When replacing the valve, be sure to use some teflon tape on the threads to make a tight seal. The gas lines and thermocouple will connect exactly like they were, on the original thermostat. When all the lines are connected, purge the gas line for a few seconds to remove the air from the line and check for leaks. Now follow the instructions to light the pilot but don't turn the burner on until the tank has refilled. If you don't feel comfortable with this, a technician may be needed. If you need more assistance, you can resubmit your question with more details.
