"General Electric Water Heater"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I've owned this water heater for almost 2 years now. It's always been quick to respond to hot water requests, and has well-rated energy efficiency. I like the lower impact it makes for the same function that other water heaters give. The capacity is more than sufficient for me and my family. I have some issues if there are a lot of guests over, but that's only during the holidays. We just happen to run the washer and dishwasher more around then because of our higher house capacity. The water heater has never needed repair or any type of maintenance at all. If I chose to move somewhere else. I would certainly install the same model. I've told my close friends about how much I like it, the Energy Guide rating is really a good one. This water heater is a top notch product. I feel that I can always trust for it to work when I need it.

Placed a 40 gallon electric GE water heater in a rental in May of 2013. In June of 2013 the tenants reported no hot water. Turned out to be a corroded heating element (date of manufacture on the tank was May of 2013 so no explanation for a corroded element in just two months; no hard water in my area). In October of 2015 tenants reported a pan full of water under the heater. Plumber found water in the electrical connection (not good). Customer service suggested changing the anode rod with the idea there might be a small leak (not covered by warranty) wicking up into the top of the unit. Two hundred bucks later and the leak continued. Gave up on this piece of junk, pulled it and replaced it with another manufacture's product. Waiting to see how GE handles all of this on a 2 1/2 year heater.

"17 years so far from a 12-year GE water heater"

In another couple of months, this GE water heater's life will be 50% longer than the warranty promised. That seems pretty good to me. Of course, GE didn't make it, even thought the label states GE; a tag located on top states that it was made by Rheem and the very complete manual that came with it was printed by Rheem. That manual also states that it's a residential model. I just changed the anode rod for the first time, so now I wonder how long the unit will last. When it does go out, I'm pretty sure I'll be replacing it with a GE or more likely with a Rheem.

"Current Hot Water Heater Review"

2.0 rating
Somewhat Unsatisfied

The GE Profile PG50T9A is an efficient water heater marketed by GE to include a nine-year warranty. The water heater is a natural gas unit, manufactured in Mexico. The unit has a 50-gallon capacity and is self-cleaning. It has been installed in its current location for 3 years. This hot water heater seems to be mediocre at best. It produces a constant stream of hot water, but the water itself is not extremely hot. Although the PG50T9A is relatively new, it does not produce sufficiently hot water temperatures. It seems as if the unit is not performing to what a unit of its quality and size should. It has not been repaired as of yet, but it may need to be serviced in the near future. I would buy a GE unit again, but certainly not this model. I would more than likely not recommend this model to a friend, as I would not be repurchasing myself.

I am a homeowner located in Denver Colorado, and I have had my General Electric water heater for over 8 years and not once have I had a fault with it. Every day without fail the water heater has continued to work and continues to go strong. I imagine it will easily go another 10 years without a problem. There is nothing really to dislike about said water heater. Whenever you need hot water it is ready and available without having to wait. I have already recommended this brand of water heater to any friends and family that have ever asked because it is an amazing water heater capable of any house needs. A water heater you can trust for your home and will always cover you when you need it. It has already paid for itself without needing any repairs in so much time. I would without any doubt recommend this boiler to whoever was looking for one!
