How to Register the Warranty for an AC Rheem Unit

Rheem manufactures many types of air conditioners and water heaters, for both residential and commercial dwellings. All Rheem products come with a manufacturer's warranty, which covers items purchased for a specified period of time, depending on the product. During the warranty period, if defects are found or the unit malfunctions, Rheem will repair or replace the damaged part or unit. To claim your warranty, you must first register your product with Rheem via the Rheem website.

  1. Locate the model number and serial number of the product that you are registering. For outdoor units, the model and serial number is located on a plate on the rear of the unit. The model and serial number is located on the inside of the top-front panel of Rheem air handlers. To remove the panel, remove the screws securing it to the unit.

  2. Visit the Rheem Warranty Registration website (see Resources).

  3. Select the product or products that you are registering from the "Select Registration Type" drop-down menu and then click "Add Unit." Click "Next" to proceed.

  4. Select the model number of your unit or units from the "Model" drop-down menu or menus. Enter the serial number and date that each unit was installed in the provided boxes. Click "Next" to proceed.

  5. Enter the information of the contractor that installed the unit or units, including the name, address and telephone number of the contractor. The contractor information is located on the invoice or installation ticket provided upon installation. Click "Next" to proceed.

  6. Enter your personal information, including your name, address, telephone number and email address. Click "Next" to proceed.

  7. Review your entries to verify that all of the information is entered correctly. To correct a field, click "Edit." When you have verified that the information entered is accurate, click "Register" to complete the registration process.
