Ask a Question
  • 1 What is temperature set at for hot water? Model sw6d 2 where is the reset button for this unit localed

    1. The temperature set point for the Suburban LP Water Heater Model SW6D is typically preset at the factory to 130 degrees Fahrenheit (54 degrees Celsius). However, the temperature can be adjusted using the thermostat located on the front of the water heater. To adjust the temperature, turn the thermostat knob to the desired temperature.

    It's important to note that the maximum safe temperature for hot water is 120 degrees Fahrenheit (49 degrees Celsius) to prevent scalding. Therefore, if you have young children or elderly people in the household, it is recommended to set the temperature lower to prevent accidental burns.

    1. The Suburban LP Water Heater Model SW6D does not have a reset button, but it has a high-temperature limit switch that can be reset if the water temperature exceeds 190 degrees Fahrenheit (88 degrees Celsius). The high-temperature limit switch is a safety feature that prevents the water heater from overheating and causing damage or safety hazards.

    If the high-temperature limit switch is tripped, it will automatically shut off the gas supply to the water heater. To reset the high-temperature limit switch, you will need to turn off the gas supply to the water heater, allow the unit to cool down, and then press the red button located on the limit switch. The limit switch is usually located under the rubber cover on the thermostat assembly, which is located on the front of the water heater.
