Please DISREGARD the bad review. It was not a Rheem issue. My mistake. Explanation (maybe others can learn from my mistake): The catch pan at the bottom of the water heater filled with water up to the overflow pipe that goes to the drain. I vacuumed the water out and made sure no water could enter from the drain pipe. (The drain pipe is also used by the furnace and air-conditioner.) After a few hours there was more water in the catch pan. I assumed this was confirmation that it came from a leak in the water heater. I was wrong!I vacuumed out the water again, called the service number and wrote the bad review. After several hours I notice the catch pan was still dry. After a full day it was still dry???. I then realized the water I thought was coming from a leak in the water heater must have come from water that collected in the water heaters insulation which gradually dripped out. So the real source of the water in the catch pan was water that back-flowed from my furnace/air-conditioner. As for Rheems support, I called the service number. They listen to my story and scheduled a service visit for the next workday. I received a call from the service provider (Sals) a few hours later. They were very pleasant and told me they would call a 1/2 hour before arrival. Fortunately, I was able to cancel the appointment. Again, Sals was very gracious and glad all was working ok.

I purchased a Rheem heat pump in 2012. I have had to call for service every year for the replacement of a TXV valve for the inside and outside unit. I also had to pay $395 to replace the Freon to install the new parts through my American Home Shield warranty. This issue occur after only 2 years of purchasing and installing by ARS. I would be out of more money for parts and labor if I didnt have the AHS warranty. I should NOT be replacing parts on a unit that is less than 5 years old. I dont know if the issues are due to poor installation or poor RHEEM parts and equipment. A system with this many issues leads me to believe that I was sold a lemon.

Buying Rheem Seer 20 heat pump/ac unit is the worst investment of our lives
Buying Rheem Seer 20 heat pump/ac unit is the worst investment of our lives. Three months after buying it quit and installer said it needed to replaced but under warranty. Waited 2 months and installed in December. Incredibly loud!!!! Sounds like a loud compressor running beside the house. If the outside temperature gets cold it is very inefficient warming the house. At -10C (14F) it couldnt keep the house warm and we had frozen pipes! Incredibly disappointed to have to live with this horrible investment. If I win the lottery this will be the first thing I replace.

We purchased a Rheem furnace 3 years ago and have problems ever since. It quits every winter. The control panel goes and there is not much you can do. At this time, I have been without heat for five days. We live in Prince George and the temperature was over 30 degrees below. Needless to say, we have been very cold. Fraser did come out right away and determined that the control panel was not working again. The water pipes were freezing and despite our small heaters, we had to call in a restoration company to heat the basement so the pipes wouldnt break at $150.00m call out plus $35.00 per day. It would seem that we have a very inferior product. Our old furnace was 30 years old and we never had any problems. Thirty below is very cold and we have had enough. The parts were supposed to be in yesterday but now we have been told maybe tomorrow. Any advice and how to we get this bad product replaced?

My Ruud furnace had its blower board replaced two years ago and shorted out
My Ruud furnace had its blower board replaced two years ago and shorted out again on a furnace that is only 14 years old (ave life approximates 20 years). Additionally, the inducer motor has failed too, making it difficult to justify the repair expense versus shelling out for a totally new furnace. I reached out to Ruud customer service and they basically said oh well, too bad. They had no sympathy, offered up no solutions, and had no interest in persuading me to buy a new Ruud or Rheem furnace. They did not care at all whether I was a customer or not. Absolutely unforgivable way to treat people that spend thousands on their machines. Will never buy Ruud/Rheem again.

My new home has a Rheem RP14 installed. Its terrible. At 32 degrees it produces almost no heat. As a comparison, I lived in a home for over 5 years and had a 2009 model year American Standard base model/builder grade heat pump that performed much better. With the American Standard HP, it would produce heat down to the mid to low 20s before tapping out. At 32 degrees, a heat pump should be producing a decent amount of heat but this Rheem is really bad!!

We had a new air handler installed in our condo in the spring of 2014. Since that time, we have had the evaporator coil replaced three times and the blower motor replaced once. Although Rheem offers a ten year warranty for the parts, they will not pony up for labor for the customers out of pocket expenses. It cost me $1450. Despite the fact the coils are obviously defective, Rheem will not take any responsibility for a product that is less than reliable. They are so bad that they currently are saddled with a class action lawsuit. Save yourself a lot of money and buy a product from a credible manufacturer who offers a reliable product.. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR.... DO NOT BUY A RHEEM AIR HANDLER.

Had this furnace 5.5 years. (RGPE07EAMKR 2 stage). Worked OK the first 5 years. At year 3 years, had to replace Pressure Switch Assembly. Even though under warranty, it still cost me $300. Just after the 5 year warranty expired, the furnace acted up and was not heating properly. Does not to Stage 2 level. And struggles to get above 70-71. After spending $700!! And had 2 techs spend a total of 6 hours on it - IT IS STILL NOT HEATING PROPERLY!!! And it is now recommended I spend another $200-$300 to TRY to get it working properly. (There is no guarantee this advice will solve the problem). I might as well throw it out and start over! I would NEVER BUY RHEEM AGAIN. :-(

I had 3.5 ton Sure Comfort heat pump installed in May 2020, failed one month later. Repaired and then failed again the same week, a different part. Made it through the summer then the winter failures began. It is only January 2021 and I have had this worked on so many times. The screws wont hold the doors and covers on anymore. This is complete garbage. I have deep regrets buying a Rheem product. I will not buy any Rheem products because of the quality of this product.

We purchased a Rheem 2-4 tons RQNL B 13 Seer Series Heat Pump in Sept 2008.
We purchased a Rheem 2-4 tons RQNL B 13 Seer Series Heat Pump in Sept 2008. We have done the maintenance on the heat pump, using pricey filters as suggested from Rheem. Year 2, had to replace the refrigerant... year 5, same thing. Our dealer ate the cost because of maintenance plan we purchased with the unit. Now year 6, we are having to replace the motherboard for the unit and blower fan. No big deal... (under 10 year warranty). Wrong, Rheem will not honor the warranty because I didnt go on-line and fill out the warranty, which I was not told about. The warranty card said do not mail, keep for your records. I called Rheem customer service, they were rude and would not give me any help.Called wholesaler where the unit was purchased, Modern Wholesale in Knoxville, Tennessee, spoke with a Mr **, he told me that Rheem started having warranties filled out on-line starting in 2009. I told him my unit was installed in 2008, he still did not and will not honor the warranty. The dealer I purchased my unit from has been helpful with names and numbers, but I dont expect him to eat the cost when Rheem should honor warranty. Rheem has 2 class action lawsuits. Anyone still wanting a Rheem, I think not, they are a rude company and will not back their product. If they did, it wouldnt matter how your warranty was filled... DO NOT BUY A RHEEM, if anything, run fast and far.

We had our entire system installed 6 years ago in 2008 after purchasing our home. We change the filters properly and even cover the units in the winter as they system is only in use for the summer. Suddenly we noticed that the first zone wasnt working. We called a tech and he diagnosed that the blower motor in the air handler must be replaced. After only 6 years? And of course, the part can only be ordered from Rheem and will cost us about $700 to fix all said and done. I wrote to Rheem about my displeasure and almost a week later a woman named Gina called (from Rheem) and asked for the units serial number and some other information. Then she told us that since it was Friday there wasnt much she could do and that she would call us back. That was almost 2 weeks ago! Weve left messages for her several times and nothing. Not only does this company make a crap product but they also seem to be lacking customer service as well. And judging by all these negative complaints, Rheem appears to care less about its image. So, this is a warning to anyone considering putting Rheem products in their home...DONT DO IT. I will be sure not to allow Rheem products in my home - if I can help it - ever again.

I purchased this AC/Furnace and had a problem with it not cooling and the Outside exchanger coming on and off all within the warranty period. The contractor who installed it, fixed it by putting more 410 refrigerant in it. When I asked about the on and off issue I was told that it was a cycling thing going on, was lead to believe that was a normal operation. Recently I had the same problem and another tech from the same company came out and told me it has a leak and he put 5lbs of 410 refrigerant in to fix the problem. He stated the problem was due to low pressure, that is why the unit did not cool and the reason why it turned on and off. Now I am 4 months over the 5 year warranty period, so I am told by the contractor and Rheem will not replace that portion as that is where the leak is without me paying for the cost of the part plus labor. The Rheem products are crap. I spent good money and had a contractor hoodwink me into thinking there was no problems with the unit when in actuality the problem was occurring during the warranty period. This unit should have easily lasted much longer than it did, but unless youre an ac tech youre not in the know. If you are looking to replace your furnace/AC unit look at another company. Rheem is one big rip off. By the way Im a Veteran. All Veterans beware. This company is like the VA.

Just want to pass along my experience with a substantial investment which I should have researched better. On Jul. 18 2011 I purchased a Rheem combo of aircon, furnace, and water heater. The price was reasonable and I received tax credits. On Jan. 13 this year after 5 and a half years the blower motor went out on a night where it was 7 degrees. That cost me $574.00 account 10-year warr. void if you dont have annual maintenance. This is an easy way to not stand behind your product. Sunday night furnace went out again. The crew couldnt repair the problem because it now needs a whole new circuitry board which is the brains of the unit. Im the one who needs some new brains for buying this lemon. Rheem Corp. Office or website has no phone # to vent. I guess they got tired of all the whining. So Ill grin and bear it. You have to admit it is a brilliant strategy to sell and service poor quality units, the business never quits. At least I havent had any trouble yet with the water heater or aircon like so many of you guys had. Knock on wood and wait it will come, lol. DONT BUY RHEEM, YOULL GET RHEEMED!

Year 5 and we have had nothing but problems with the unit that was installed Aug 31, 2009. The inside coils had to be replaced after 1year. The Fan Motor control ECM had to be replaced in 2013 - out labor cost of $200. The compressor fan motor had to replaced in Nov 2014 - out Labor cost of $250. They replaced it and 10 minutes later the unit shut down again. Now they are saying that the TXV on the heat pump is causing to short cycle on heat - will again be out Labor of $625. This is a nightmare and all the RHEEM service center says is they are not responsible for labor. WHAT ABOUT putting POOR QUALITY PRODUCT in consumer homes. WARNING to others - RHEEM does not take accountability for bad products.

We had a Rheem two-stage R-410A Heat Pump (4 ton) (2 speed) outdoor unit with matching 4 ton air handler (variable speed) installed in September 2014 by Home Depots contractor ARS with county permit. We know it was professionally installed correctly. We signed up for the service program with twice yearly inspections for maintenance. Everything checked out until our March 2017 service call when it was discovered that the static pressure was too high. When the air handler panel was removed you could see that 2/3rds of the A coils was covered with frost, a result of internal restriction. Also, on close examination, you could see rust all around the tubes where they came out and went back (U shape). My contractor did a replacement installation of the coil unit. The unit itself was covered by Rheems 10 year warranty but not the labor, so I was out $997. This for a coil unit that was not 3 years old, the date of manufacture was July 2014, installed September 2014. Very poor quality. What is most interesting is that the replacement coil unit is all aluminum. The contractor/installer said all the new Rheem units similar to mine now come with the all aluminum coil units. This tells me that Rheem knew it had junk and switched out to the all aluminum, which will not have a rust issue and hopefully not an internal issue with restrictions.

Purchased a new Ruud 2.5-ton heat pump system in January of 2013. Have had nothing but trouble with this system every since it was installed. 14 months after it was installed is when the troubles started. Technician came out to find the system to have no refrigerant and found that a factory solder joint was leaking in the outdoor heat pump. Repair was made and in April of 2016 system stopped again technician found system to be out of refrigerant again due to a leaking outdoor coil, replaced outdoor coil, system stopped again in April of 2017 technician for evaporator coil to be leaking, replaced evaporator coil, system stopped again in Dec. 2017 due to a defective coil temp sensor, replaced sensor, system stopped again in Dec. 2018 due to a defective compressor, when compressor was replaced technician found that the expansion valve was also defective which caused the compressor to fail, replaced compressor and expansion valve, system stopped again in Jan. 2020 due to expansion valve failing again, The contractor that did the installation of the system contacted Ruud and I also contacted Ruud to file a lemon complaint. Apparently Lisa whom I had spoken with and did not hear back from until 2 weeks later got with Wayne whom the contractor had spoken with must have gotten together at some point because they both told the contractor and myself the same story. I have spent over $3500 in repairs and Ruud only was willing to pay $225 labor fee to replace the expansion valve a second time. I decided to replace my heat pump. I would not recommend buying Ruud/Rheem systems. They are junk.

Got the Rheem tankless water heater in 2015 through the contractor we used
Got the Rheem tankless water heater in 2015 through the contractor we used at the time for purchasing and installing the water heater/furnace. The townhouse was under major renovations until October 2016 when we moved in. The water heater worked perfectly until the beginning of March 2018, when we started to get the ERROR code 11. Since then, until the current date May 9, 2018 the issue has not been resolved. Manufacturer is blaming the installer and keeps telling us that the product must be re-installed in order to work. So lets revise: it worked perfectly for 1 1/2 year and now when it is not working, it is because it was not installed as per requirements... The contractor I am currently using to resolve the issue has been back and forth with the manufacturer numerous times but their customer service is extremely poor and very frustrating with no real help or viable solutions. STAY AWAY FROM RHEEM PRODUCTS.

Purchased a Rheem 3.5 ton 15 SEER split heat pump system in January 2014. Because of all the problems with the unit right after installation the outside unit was replaced March 2014. Weve had constant service calls for the unit not cooling, abnormal loud noises when the unit comes on, wires touching that disabled the system, coils leaking in the inside unit which called for replacement. We were promised in 2014 that a Rheem rep would come out and that didnt happen until March of 2015. I have a service technician here right now because the unit decided to quit cooling yesterday. I wouldnt recommend this unit to anyone, even my worst enemy. The Rheem rep in my area, Sleeping Giant in Childersburg AL, doesnt care about service after the sale but Ill save that for another review.

I moved into my house two years back. The furnace that was initially pre-installed by the initial tenant was however too noisy and too faulty. I decided to purchase another furnace for my convenience. I did my research from friends opinions and their experiences with their furnaces, and also went further and researched online. I decided to settle for a Rheem classic series whose price was a little bit subsidized by 10% in comparison with other furnaces of the same properties. It is quite heavenly that you won’t notice the fluctuation in seasons to winter. There is no cold at all. It is the best furnace that one could ever get and has never given me any problems.

Catastrophic failure of the reversing valve in 2 years old Rheem heat pump
Catastrophic failure of the reversing valve in 2 years old Rheem heat pump vented all refrigerant. $253.00 Cost to find failure. $600.00 Cost of labor to replacing their failed reversing valve. $450.00 Cost to replace refrigerant caused by failure of their reversing valve. $0.00 Cost of parts. $0.00 (Only thing covered under 10 years’ warranty). Costs covered by the famous Rheem 10 years’ warranty $0.00. Likelihood that Rheem/Ruud will ever see my business or anyone I know again 0%. This short-sighted strategy creates an incentive to produce subpar products. I highly recommend looking at another heating and air supplier and pay close attention to what they cover in their warranty.

Love the system. Bought a 5 ton 20 SEER Heat Pump. Unit is very quiet, runs on low most all of the time. The house is in LA (Lower Alabama) 30 mile from the Gulf of Mexico. Love the ECONET system. I am able to control the heat pump and my water heater from a app on phone. Helps save money as you can control the temperatures of both with the app when you go off or temperatures needs change with a large group of people in the house. System lets you know when it is time to clean or replace air filters.

The Rheem inducer died after only 2 years, which means it ran only 12 winte
The Rheem inducer died after only 2 years, which means it ran only 12 winter/fall months. The original cost of install for the inducer was about $500 for the inducer and $200 for labor. The furnace filter was changed every month during use and the newer furnace was serviced yearly. The inducer was clearly a LEMON. Since the company that installed it claimed their distributor would not get me a replacement after I offered to pay their cost but no profit, (I didnt think it was right they sold me a lemon and then make a bunch of money selling me a replacement), I called Genco. Genco was who the installer of the furnace told me to call because they now own Rheem/Ruud.Genco was not even remotely willing to help.... much like most reviews I read about Rheem/Ruud service. You can add Genco to the poor customer service list with Rheem/Ruud. Just bought a new inducer online for $210..... so I can get my furnace working again. The contracting company said the cheapest they could get one for from their distributor was $367..... What a racket!

Model 13PJL60A01 - This A/C unit was installed in our new home in December of 2010. Not even 5 years old it has 3 A/C Freon leaks -- The first in the air handler coil which had to be replaced and two in the outside unit in the same location. Each time the unit has been repaired we have had to pay $540.00 for the Freon replacement. That is over $1,600.00 in Freon alone. A new unit only cost just over $2,000.00. This unit is prone to leaks and vibration. Rheem seems to want to do nothing... I Rate Rheem extremely poor on quality.

The gentleman said it will be $500.04 but the spares will be at no cost as it is still under warranty. FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS for labor!!!!!!!!!?????? I have had this aircon regularly serviced, changed the filters every month and looked after it well, from a maintenance point of view. I did not want to give ONE star but that is the lowest I can go.

We bought a new Rheem heat pump and air handler. 2 months after the 12 month warranty expired we had to have the unit recharged and again 13 months later. We are responsible for the recharge costs along with the labor cost to replace the faulty coil. Rheem knows this is a faulty coil but will not cover the labor. Also the coil in the air handler is leaking and I am concerned about the dangers of my family breathing this for 2 years. Rheem said they didnt think there was reason to worry. This system has been a disappointment from the start and I want everyone to know what a poor quality product this company makes. Dont waste your money on this product from a company that doesnt care after the sale.

We installed in January 2010 an RGRM 95% efficiency brand new furnace with an authorized contractor from Rheem. In September of 2010, we had to call the dealer to help turn the furnace on. We are once again unable to get the furnace to turn on this October. The Rheem technician is asking us to call the dealer back in and pay for labor. This is a brand new furnace, why should we have to call the dealer in every September/October to help start this furnace? Obviously, we have a faulty unit that Rheem is refusing to help us with. An older 30-year-old furnace did not give us any problems. This is supposed to be a brand new furnace and Rheem is asking us to purchase an extended warranty

Last Spring 2016, I had a contractor install air conditioning in my 2 story
Last Spring 2016, I had a contractor install air conditioning in my 2 story house beach house. It was not possible to run ducts on the first floor so Fujitsu ductless was installed and works beautifully. Unfortunately, on the second floor I had central air conditioning installed and paid additional to upgrade to the Ruud brand. Big Mistake! The contractor had problems upon problems with the equipment. Because the equipment did not work, the compressor had to be installed twice and the coil/air handler needed to be installed three times. In summary, the contractor wasnt happy with all the time he spent and wasnt paid for and the installation wasnt finished until mid summer ruining my summer.

Installed AC in September 2012. I am now in need of a fourth reversing value. Total cost less current charges $2000. Local representative has recommended replacement of outside unit at no cost. But I would need to purchase air handler in attic. When I questioned this he stated they only come as a package. Called Rheem warranty department. They confirmed they only came as a complete system and I would need to purchase the replacement air handler. I questioned that logic as since the original outdoor unit was being replaced due to a problem the attic unit should be replaced at no cost. The system has been down since the first week of July 2018. Have made several follow up calls to no avail. Stay away!

My Rheem heat pump is barely 2 years old and Ive had to have the refrigeran
My Rheem heat pump is barely 2 years old and Ive had to have the refrigerant filled up 3 times!! Last winter, unknown to me, it all leaked out after being filled in June and my heat bill skyrocketed to between $200-390 for 4-5 months due to not having the refrigerant in it. Then this morning I had to have it serviced again due to no refrigerant. Thats how I found out about the defective copper. My serviceman finally told me what the problem is. My heat pump is supposedly under full warranty, but, and because of, RHEEM using this faulty copper, I have to pay for the refrigerant, and the labor to have new coils put in to replace the defective ones!! Im on disability and DO NOT have the money to get it replaced. I am still paying off loans for the heat bills this past winter. The labor is approximately $300-500 to replace the bad one, with the cost of the refrigerant on top of that? Please help us wit h this.In my opinion as a consumer, if they used faulty material, why do I have to pay for it to be replaced? I had good faith that this was a brand new, in working order, heat pump and ac unit. I read a lot of bad reviews on this manufacturer and am wondering why no one is doing anything about this? We spoke to someone from the company this morning and yes, they knew about the issues that myself and apparently, hundreds of other people, are having with this manufacturer.

In Dec 2012 we moved into our new home, over the Christmas/New Year period
In Dec 2012 we moved into our new home, over the Christmas/New Year period the hot water system broke down, I rang Rheem and reported the problem, January 2013 it was repaired under warranty, the fault being a leaking gromit allowing water to enter the circuit board. 2nd repair was in April 2014, the system required a reset, which Rheem was contacted and sent a electrician to perform the reset which wasnt covered by warranty and costed $99. 3rd repair, same problem, required a reset, but before the electrician left the system faulted again. The system was then put in bypass mode till a diagnosis could be made, a period of about 1 month. Note: while in bypass mode the system uses more power due to only heating a small amount of water in a secondary system much like a kettle.This job was then handed over to a refrigeration mechanic who two weeks later had to remove the heating unit from the system and take to town for repair, another three weeks passed when I called to check on the system and was told they were waiting for parts. Another two more weeks passed and I called to check on the job, parts had arrived and were being fitted. And a couple more days the unit was back on the hot water system (this period was approx 2 1/2 months of the system in bypass mode, costing more to run, and not being efficient as the manufacturer claimed, the next power bill was huge). 4th breakdown, the system worked for a little while before it stopped again, and was out of service. It was back in bypass mode for another two-three weeks while parts were ordered, the unit was removed again from the hot water system and sent to town for repair. Two week later it was returned and refitted.In December 2014 I contacted Rheem and spoke to Peter **, their customer service manager, and voiced my concerns that the system was almost out of warranty and now it is noisier due to being pulled apart so many times, and the run time was excessive and I felt it wasnt cutting out when it should, it wasnt cost efficient as they claimed it would be, and if it was to fail one more time I would have to replace it with another unit of a different brand, as I couldnt afford to keep repairing it and paying the high power bills it caused, and that I had lost all faith in their product. Peter assured me the system working within spec and would continue to function. 5th breakdown, 2/6/15 the system failed again, I called Rheem at 0800 that morning and reported it.Around lunch time I had not received any return phone call, and as I was leaving the following day to travel interstate, I decided to call a plumber and get the system replaced with a standard type hot water system so my family wouldnt be without hot water in my absence. 16/6/15 I got a return phone call from Rheem saying they would replace the system with a new model heat pump system, but I informed them that the system had already been replaced, and it was now out of warranty.After more emails to Peter **, and providing him with invoices for both the new system and the original failing system, copies of power bills and a photo of the installed new system, he has decided to refund me the cost of the new system $1375, plus $300 towards excess power. And not refund me the cost of the failed system $3080, as I had an opportunity to accept his offer of a new system back on the 16/6/15, two weeks after the system had failed and been removed and replaced. My argument is that he had the opportunity to replace the system in December 2014 when I voiced my concerns to him via phone call and not two weeks after the failed system was removed.

I bought a Rheem furnace 2 stage variable speed and A/C unit. It was installed in summer. In winter, I noticed that furnace kicks in directly in the second stage and never works in the first stage. It is too noisy and heat variations are high. I tried for 3 months to determine the contractor to come and fix the issue. It was not an emergency, but the unit was under warranty and did not do what was supposed to do. After 3 months, the contractor comes and tries to call the dealer in order to get support from them as the contractor did not know what to do (despite the fact it seems a very simple setting). I took 2 days off, and every day the contractor cannot reach the dealers technician despite the fact that this was scheduled in advance. I was frustrated and tried to send a complaint directly to Rheem. I filled in their contact form (there is no way to contact them via phone) and wrote a long note venting my frustration and bad experience with the whole chain. And at the end, when I tried to submit, it didnt go through. I tried 6 times and every time, it failed without telling me what the error is. So in the end, there is no one to contact at Rheem to explain the situation, and how the dealer and the contractor and possibly the quality of their product affect their reputation. In the end, I am a very unhappy Rheem customer, and I would never ever recommend someone to buy a Rheem product due to the overall experience I had with all 3 entities involved (producer/dealer and contractor).

Purchased a new Rheem furnace on 11-15-2012, installed on 3-22-2013, contacted Rheem about the warranty and was told that because the furnace was made 1-10-2010 it was not eligible for a full warranty of 5 years on parts because of the manufacture date. I was told the warranty started in 2010 and is only valid till 2015. How is that even legal, that means the warranty started before I bought it, can they do that? If so how?

Four years in, the Rheem Prestige heat/air/heat pump we purchased has been an incredible headache. A dozen service calls and no solution. 5 ton unit will not adequately cool/dehumidify a 5,000 sq ft house. Spent $13k for this system and had to spend a lot more for a whole house dehumidifier. The heat pump has repeatedly shook/vibrated when not on emergency heat. The shaking was at times SEVERE. Now the piece of junk has lost its refrigerant. I am done trying to fix it. While the dealer did his very best, nothing has ever been fixed on this thing. Never, ever will I buy anything from Rheem again. Every aspect of this ownership experience has been god-awful. Stay as far away as you can from Rheem.

New Rheem heat pump installed on 5/2012. Polar Bear Heat & Cooling warr
New Rheem heat pump installed on 5/2012. Polar Bear Heat & Cooling warrantied this unit in writing parts and labor 12 months. Parts warrantied for ten years. The compressor failed after ten months. Polar Bear would not repair the unit unless I gave them $400 upfront for lost freon. They said Rheem would not compensate them for freon. I phoned Rheem customer service regarding that and they said they do not cover lost freon. Tough luck! Wife is ill and coming home from rehab in that period. I must have heat and cooling. I was forced to cough up $400 or Polar Bear would not repair. Gun to head. Attorney General Office in Florida fluffed me off and told me to get a lawyer that they dont handle private cases. BBB involved but they have no authority, only a token part. I dread the next ten years with Rheem if it lasts that long.

I have been used for 11 yrs, no problem at all. I don’t know how long my previous owner has used. In 2015 I contacted the manufacturer by email, they are nice and respond quickly. I just want to be fair to tell my true experience.

Long story short, back in 2010 I had the chance to have a brand spanking new Rheem oil burner installed for free to replace a very good, reliable and well-running oil burner, which was installed way back in 1979 as a new unit and never had a problem with it. Boy do I wish that I still had that unit, over this four-year old piece of junk. It might have been a little tired, as I was told, but so what, after 31 years - what do you expect - its normal wear and tear. From day one, upon the installation of this Rheem unit, it has been a problem with the smell of raw, unburned oil coming up through the heating vents. It doesnt happen all of the time, but it shouldnt be happening at all. It is nasty when this happens and you never know when it will strike again. I have contacted the clowns who installed this unit, of course they portray the three stooges 21st century style - they are totally clueless in Massachusetts. I wont even allow them into my house for a third time. I contacted the public assistance agency who was instrumental in my receiving this wonderful product. I have called them only six times in the last four years concerning this problem. I am told consistently by the same person, each time, that there is nothing that they can do about it. I have asked them if anyone else of the approximately 120 homes that have had these furnaces installed has had this problem with their unit. I am told no, that I am the only one. I suppose that this is possible, but a bit unlikely, I feel. Even though this agency takes the lowest bidder, I dont know who or what to believe, or not. I have only contacted Rheem four times in the last year and you never hear back. So now I am thinking BBB, possibly FTC, or some other applicable agency. Maybe sue Rheem, the installer, or the assistance agency. It is hard when you dont know what to do. I suppose that I could go to one of my elected officials, I am so sure that these underpaid $120,000.00 per year cronies are real interested in helping out with something like this. Thanks for reading this.
