SOURCE: Rheem water heater with powerglow ignition wont re-light

I have fixed mine. The problem part is the Ignition Control module. It is made by Robert Shaw part # SP10758. I paid $93 plus shipping.

Works great now. A repairman wanted to sell me a gas valve for $488.
Watch out for these people.....

SOURCE: rheem 71 40d elecrtic water heater not heating

If it is an electric water heater, there is no pilot light. You could have bad elements or bad thermostats. Be careful working on an electric water heater, as most use 208-220 volts!

If it is a gas water heater, it could be a bad thermocouple, ignitor, gas valve.

My advice to you is to call a qualified service company to come repair your water heater.

Year model by serial number


So.........it's a GSW 50 gallon which you either bought in Canada or smuggled in.
Even if you have a model with a shutter damper without a fan this is NOT a Power Venter and will need standard through roof flue pipe/chimney to establish draft and vent CO and exhaust gases atmospherically AKA Natural Draft. It will NOT vent sidewall without a fan induced draft

How long will it take Rheem solar hot water to heat up


read manual:
http://www.rheem.com.au/Assets/1294/1/Rheemsolarlolineelectric511series.pdf
Usually electric element heats about 20 gallons per hour.
It appears the element is controlled by thermostat and automatically kicks ON when tank falls below thermostat set point..
This will be handy since element will continually heat the circulating water when outside temperatures turn cool... of course it will also be wasteful if thermostat is set high.

Pull the thermostat loose from the wall so you can see the model number located on the back of device.
Google search model: xxxxcy .pdf
Or search for british gas thermostat .pdf
This will give you access to product manual.
Also check batteries located on back of unit. Install fresh batteries. Memories should be retained on the chip during battery change.
Add a comment with model number, and I will try to locate thermostat manual.

Richmond 5v40-36f


1) My search does not show that product exists, or existed before the internet.
Maybe that product only exists on fixya.
Or the water heater is older model number from Rheem., aka Richmond, Ruud etc.
Or fixya picked up a model number from a question, and the person asking question did not copy model number correctly from label on side of tank.
It might also be older manufactured home gas water heater.

Where is the combustion shutoff system on a Rheem 30 gal moble home hot water heater


Disproportionate number of water heater problems are Rheem-related, yet Rheem is just 1 of 3 major water heater manufacturers.

If you have Rheem tank-type gas water heater, and the combustion shut off has tripped the FV system, then there is a broken glass vial located under the burner.
Rheem does not post service manuals, and they may or may not send the glass vial for replacement. Depending on model which appears on label on side of tank. Year of manufacture are 3rd and 4th digits in serial number.
And they may want you to contact a qualified service technician (plumber)
You will have to replace glass vial, and clean the arrestor screen and clean the combustion parts, check gas pressure, and check venting.
Other companies post service manuals and do not rely on the glass vial.
