Q:

Hot Water Leakage 153339760 Kenmore Gas water heater

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
I suspect that your tank is beginning to rust, possibly from the base near the rear where it is hard to see it. If the tank is rusting and leaking water, there is no fix to that issue and the water heater will need replacement to solve the issue. It might be worth investigating the source of the leak to determine if it's coming from the tank or from another source such as the drain valve. 
Hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

The writing on the water heater only instructs how to relight the pilot. So are you saying to turn the knob pass the low dot and it will be alright to leave.

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the water heater. When going on vacation, it can be set at the minimum setting or turn it to the pilot setting. Now, if the water level in the basement reached the bottom section of the water heater and got into the burner section, the water heater will need to be replaced. Water will damage the arrestor, which is located under the burner assembly. The arrestor is the main air intake for the burner and if damaged can create a dangerous situation. I hope this will help you.

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 .
