FYI - Just received this from tech support at Bradford - White. Thought you guys might be interested.
Decoding Serial Numbers on Bradford White water heaters:
YEAR (1ST DIGIT) MONTH (2ND DIGIT)
G = 1990 X = 2001 A = JANUARY
H = 1991 Y = 2002 B = FEBRUARY
J = 1992 Z = 2003 C = MARCH
K = 1993 A = 2004 D = APRIL
L = 1994 B = 2005 E = MAY
M = 1995 C = 2006 F = JUNE
N = 1996 D = 2007 G = JULY
P = 1997 E = 2008 H = AUGUST
S = 1998 F = 2009 J = SEPT
T = 1999 G = 2010 K = OCTOBER
W = 2000 L = NOVEMBER
M = DECEMBER
Notes: For the year column, we do not use the letters
I, O, Q, R, U, V
For the month column, we do not use the letters
I, and N through Z.
Due to computer error there were some OA serial # water heaters manufactured. They were built in January 1997.
Hope someone can use this.
PS - looks like the program bunches everthing together so be careful.
The year starts with the letter "G" in 1990 and end with the letter "G" in 2010. The alphabet starts with "A"and ends with "M"
