Kenmore 50gal gas water heater made 'loud' humming noises a month after installation. After spending hours researching it (not a warranty issue according to Sears) turns out it is caused by vibration on an internal shield.
Sears is aware of the issue because I stumbled across a service bulletin that describes the repair for it. Then 1 1/2 years later the t/p valve fails... Sears wants to charge a service call to determine if its a warranty issue. I bought it because it claimed to have a 12 year warranty!
Pressure valve shouldn't fail after 1 1/2 years!
Spent 45 minutes on the phone with three totally rude Sears representatives. I will never buy another thing from Sears!
