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.

So far so good.

Bought this a month ago. Was very easy to install, it was my first time installing one. Took a couple of tries to start it then then it fired up pretty quick and heated the tank with a few hours. You don't have to turn it all the way up, the Hot level is very hot. I can't imagine how hot the Very Hot setting is.So far so good. I gave it 4 stars due to the price. It's quite expensive.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

gas water heater

So far it seems to work for a family of 5. Sometimes the last person might have to wait a bit or not take such a long shower. ;) The value is very good for the price.

This is a great buy!

We purchased this water heater to replace our 22 year old water heater. This was the same model as the one that lasted us for 22 years. You can's beat that!

Liking Kemmore

This was a replacement item for one that was about 20 years old, same model. The old one sprang a leak, but still provided really hot water til its last day. We look forward to the new one lasting just as long. Quick intstall. Happy with Kenmore

Gas water heater is working perfectly.

The water is very hot. It didn't take long for the contractor (my personal one) to install. The water heated up fast and it's great having hot water again. I've only had the water heater for a short time. I brought it to replace a previous Kenmore heater that lasted well beyond the warranty and never had to be serviced.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
