Rheem Hot Water Heater New -Defective No Product Quality
(Mount Juliet, TN)
I purchased this Rheem Electric Hot heater brand new from a large home improvement store. The water heater came with a bad heating element. My service person tested the unit with his meter and was able to tell immediately that the heating element had no OHMNs which meant the heating element was not working.
I then found out that Rheem's standard policy is they will not replace a new defective unit however they would send me the part and then I could have my service man fix the brand new unit. I was also informed they have no customer service department. In my opinion Rheem obviously has no concerns for product quality or customer satisfaction. I will never personally buy another Rheem product.
