Default Nightmare heater thread. Residential or commercial

Here was mine today. Guessing 40’s maybe 50’s Rheem electric. Other than Rheem and the plumber who installed it, no other information on it. Check out the plumbers phone number! Not only the heater, but entire potable repipe. Started at 8:30, done by 2. Second floor was already copper to the basement, but we did have to leave to get the heater because we didn’t know if she wanted to stay electric or switch to power vent... about an hour wasted.

One heavy SOB! Between my Master (59) and I (40) it was two steps at a time before a 45 second break. I had to take a 15 after we got it up and out! My guess is it was between 600 and 700 pounds.

I had a main line afterwards. I had to have my Master help me get my 6200 up the stairs. My legs felt like jello.

Managed to still get home and shower for my son’s birthday dinner!

I bet Master Mark might have one or two tales to tell!

Big dogs like that are left there for scrap removal companies or movers to take out.
The guy on top slips or has an issue the guy below is history.

You should tell your master to see if that number is disconnected or is that guy still in business....... As old as that one is maybe the guy plastered his name all over the city and you could buy the number from ameritech..... or perhaps the guy has been gone too long....... worth looking into

that heater is the reason I have an Esclaria stair climber....

Talking

I changed out a couple of those back in the early 2000's,

the elements are long coiled wires like toaster wire around ceramic disks,

look like what they showed in the movie "THE ROCK" for VX GAS

Got this one coming up in a couple of weeks. 21” wide. 18” door to fit it through. Decision hasn’t been made if they’re staying electric or converting to power vent.
