You should be able to contact any licensed Rheem dealer and they should be able to get yo a replacement under warranty as long as you have the invoice showing install date.

Did you have it installed or purchase yourself?

If you do not know who is a dealer near you, contact Rheem at number on link for customer service warranty and parts below and they will provide local dealer info.

I had it installed by a rheem dealer who is now retired, the rheem dealers in my area checked with rheem and told me my warranty based on date of manufacture is no longer valid I have the invoice from the install which was only just over 5 years ago they said they could not help and I would have to contact rheem myself
