Q:

Anode rod Needs E2F40RD045V American Waterheaters Water heater

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

On page 11 of the owner's manual, it does specify that there is a special anode rod that can help with the smell, often referred to as a "rotten egg smell". It is caused by hydrogen sulfide gas dissolved in the water. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we have the anode rods within the parts list, and the parts list on page 15 of the manual requests for you to call 1-877-817-6750. That would be the best recommendation at this point to obtain the part number for the special anode rod. 

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

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the water leaking from the water heater. Water leaking from the top where the anode is screwed into the tank and from the inlet will most likely indicate the tank has a leak but it could also be from the connections. I would recommend having a technician or a plumber make this check. However, if you would like to check this yourself be very careful. To check the connections, disconnect the power and close the water supply valve to the water heater. Now disconnect the cold inlet connection and remove the nipple. Wrap some teflon tape around the threads and place the nipple back in the tank. Tighten it snug but not excessively tight and reconnect the water line. Now follow the same procedure with the anode rod. It could be very hard to loosen. Now, with both connections back in place turn the water back on. If it still leaks, the tank will probably need to be replaced. A technician will need to check this to verify it. I'm listing a site you can access, to schedule a tech to come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist your further.
