What are the possible causes of a Rheem water heater producing excessive noise during operation?


James Thompson, Water Heater Repair Expert

Excessive noise from a Rheem water heater during operation can be attributed to several factors. One possible cause is sediment buildup in the tank, which can create popping or rumbling sounds. Another potential reason is a faulty heating element, causing the water to boil and produce noise. Additionally, a loose or damaged component, such as a valve or pipe, can result in vibrating or banging noises. It is also worth checking if the water pressure is too high, as this can lead to noisy operation. If you are experiencing any of these issues, our team of specialists at 5 Star Best Plumbing can provide expert water heater repair services.
