I have two of these water heaters in my basement. The motor on one made so much noise that I could hear it on the second level of my home. I phoned a water heater repair guy that I found in the phone book, he said that this type of water heater cannot be repaired and that a new one is needed at around $1500.
I then phoned a plumbing Contractor and he said the same thing. He recommended that I turn the power off to the one that made the noise. Is this true can this type of water heater not be repaired a new one must bordered? They are both about10 years old.
