Thanks for the number.
What I was checking to see if your model had other openings.

If you can't fix it right now and have to go. Bypass the water heater by disconnecting the lines and hook them together or plug them and leave the drain plug out .As others have said, do not allow the area to stay wet.I would pull the whole unit out and dry the area thoroughly.

ronnie has the solution.

You gotta get the old unit out of there and get a fan in there pronto.
