Kenmore gas water heater

As seen from the above, there are only five Kenmore gas water heaters with the tank capacity of 30 gallons all designed with the standard atmospheric venting.

These are equipped with the gas and temperature control, which has an option to set the temperature, operating modes and diagnose the problem with the diagnose flashing lights.

All models are built for indoor use and to work on natural gas, except Kenmore 33693 model that is used in mobile homes and 33694 model that runs on propane gas. Due to the smaller energy efficiency, none of the models meet the Energy Star compliance criteria.

You can buy Kenmore gas water heater only at the Sears store and the price is in the range from $300 to $500.
