Kenmore 40 gal. gas water heater
The appliance seems fine and the installation went well. My only problem was that the instalation cost $325 more than was estimated. According to the installer the flue had to be replaced ($250) and the overflow pipe had to be replaced ($75). I just can't be sure if that was really necessary. Also if these extra charges are usually routine when a 9 year old water heater is being replaced, then they should be spelled out at time of purchase. At time of instalation the customer is really a captive audience with no alternatives. I suspect the installation company routinely adds these last minute charges. The customer has no opportunity to get an opinion or check prices.

Be weary of floor model or scratch n dent.

We figured we would save a few buck and get the floor/scratch n dent model. I would be weary but you can get one heck of a deal though. Don't use our experience as the norm for this product. The first unit installed easy and fairly fast. Fill then fired the unit up and withing a few moments the tank started to leak (factory defect on a weld). We had to drain ane remove the unit. Called Sears and after a few calls they took it back under warranties full replacement. The unit was not even a minute in use. After all was said and done Sears was a good choice and was easy to work with.  Now for how this unit will funtion as it should and last the lifetime is a wait and see. First day of use has yet to start. Should be a good value but only time will tell. Will write a better review as time goes on.

This water heater is a failure

We bought this product around 3 years ago. After the first year warranty went out this heater started to give us problems. It went out without reason and thanks God my husband could re lit it and it worked again few months and we went on the same procedure again and again until now that It broke down finally few days ago. One friend of mine ( Technician) came to inspect the unit and told us what part was needed. I called to Sears and the customer representative said that he cannot request the part without sendind a kenmore techician to do the job. I explained to him that my friend will install the part without charge and he said that then I cannot get the part and he will need to check the policy because maybe that part it was not covered under the warranty. He offered me to buy the SEARS Warranty to cover the repairs. One year for $200.00. What a rip off! I will prefer to spend more money and buy other water heater on other place that value more my business.

DO NOT BUY A KENMORE WATER HEATER!!!

My wife and I have lived in our home for 17 years. We purchased our first Kenmore water heater in 2001. It began to have problems after only two years. We replaced it with another Kenmore water heater in 2003. It began to have problems about three years after we got it. Call me stupid, but yes, we replaced it with another Kenmore water heater in 2008(I replaced the thermolcouple twice). And yes, after about two years it began to have problems too. Sears replaced this one for us in 2012 and GUESS WHAT?! You guessed right! It's two years later and NO HOT WATER!!! We will NEVER purchase a Kenmore product again!!!

Gas water heater

Seems to be your basic gas water heater. Easy pick-up at store and with a little help it was easy to install. Some cities require a permit and a licensed contractor for installation. Check with yours first.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore Hot Water Heater

We needed a hot water heater immediately and found the best deal at Sears. The clerk was friendly and helpful. We will not hesitate to go to our local Sears store the next time we need an appliance.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A Good Deal when On Sale

Got this for 327 at store the online price. Ignition system worked flawlessly, no matches or other goofy ways. Roto Swirl works as I have only owned Kenmore Brand Hot water tanks for last 20 years. Be sure to check online price to get good deal. Coming with the pressure relief valve is a good deal. 3/4 water connections. Only reason not 5 stars is only 6 year warranty.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
