Kenmore 50 gal Electric Water Heater working fine for 6 years
We got our first mini disaster in the basement when the previous heater started leaking profuesly and we ordered a new one from Sears. This one we upgraded from 40 to 50 Gallons size as previous one was often running cool water after someone taking longer showers. The installation was quick and smooth. We immediately noticed the great relief and constant hot water after getting this. Also being Energy star compliant and newer heater we noticed a great reduction in the power consumption. Six years and running we are not noticing any change in performance, though crossing our fingers as someone mentioned these heaters have not lasted them beyond the stipulated 6-7 years. Fully recommend from the experience so far with the heaters and with Sears

If I could give this thing a half star, I would. I purchased this heater 3/2010...I begin having problems, February 2014. You don't expect to replace a water heater after ALMOST 4 years of use!. The previous reviewers are not bending the truth. This unit will begin to require resetting about every month or so. You will first think that the thermostat could be bad or the heating element but this is actually a manufactured defect. I am now having to buy another heater. Oh, by the way...this is in a rental property. If it were in my house, I would just keep resetting it, but I can't ask someone to pay rent and tell them to keep resetting the heater so you may have hot water.

We priced self-cleaning water heaters at ***** & **********, thier was $100 more! The

self-cleaning models last a long time, like our old one that lasted 18yrs.
