I purchased my Kenmore Gas Water Heater for the price, unfortunately, I purchased one with a defective value unit, which has been replaced within in a week of my purchase, the water heater seems to be working fine. Also, there were no fittings that came with my purchase, so I had to spend more money to buy fittings. The Sears Kenmore Gas Water Heater is good for the price, but make sure before installaling, that you have everything you need.
This was easy to install and get plummed and the pilot light lit and the hot water is flowing now. No waiting on hot water no matter where in the hot you are. Well worth the prce.
It replaced my old Kenmore water heater. I was able to install it using pretty much all the existing pipe connections and strapping hardware. One thing it impressed me is it started easily once I connected the gas pipes. After clicking the starter button a few times, the LED light started to flash every 3 seconds. I released the push button and turned the gas on. I don't need to use a match to light the pilot light anymore.
This water heater was so easy to install, with no problems at all. Heats the water up quick. I washed dishes then all six family members took showers with out running out of hot water...perfect.
I ordered this model after our old water heater began to leak in the basement. Ordered it online, picked it up at the store that afternoon. I've never installed one before, but with the additional installation kit it was a breeze, only took me about 90 minutes. Fired it up and had hot water within 30 minutes. A great buy, and if it lasts half as long as my old one did (close to 15 years) it's well worth the price.
I shopped around extensively for the best deal possible. I also needed a good quality unit. Comparable units were $80 to $150 more with less features. After reading a couple of reviews here, I purchased this unit on line and picked up at the store. It installed easily (less than 40 minutes, by myself) and it has worked better than our original unit did when it was new. Faster recovery is the main feature that we like best.
Works great..plenty of hot water.
This was not only a good quality product that has performed without any issues, but I was surprised when I started shopping around that Sears had the best prices by far compared to any of their competitors. Recently I have been very surprised with product quality and price when dealing with sears.
easy to install
Who came up with a heater that was for just 3 years??? When I ordered it I thought that all of the water heaters had similar quality. I checked the number of stars that the product was awarded ;not thinking Sears would carry a substandard heater!!!
