How can I find the manual to a rheem 21vp50-1 gas water heater? It does not seem available.


For troubleshoot and installation:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

Rheem manuals are generic, and contain no service information, or other useful information that would be unavailable from downloading current gas water heater manual.
One site posts talks about 21vp50 but posts generic American water heater manual instead of Rheem
http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/f918341a-6e8e-41b4-85be-5cde688317b9.pdf
Go to Rheem website, click on power vent, then click tab for Specs/Docs ... and click link for manual and then call Rheem and ask why they do not post service bulletins that match the required maintenance shown in product manual:

Install a water control valve


Rheem does not post service manuals or bulletins.
It's how they treat customers. I do not recommend Rheem because of this problem.
They must expect their customers to pay for service call from Rheem-loyal technicians.

Here are resources that might help.

Rheem Integrity 20 not always lighting. Showing code C2 11


Before calling service technician, open following links for Rheem/Paloma troubleshoot resources including error codes:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/No-Error-Code.pdf

C2 11 is no ignition.
Clean combustion parts yearly as recommended in manual is first step.
Other causes can be loose wiring, bas gas valve, dirty air intake, bad venting, bad sensors etc.
Test these parts using service manual. Call Rheem since Rheem does not post service manuals.

I have a rheem power vent 21vp75e-1 it ignites the burner for couple of seconds and shuts off and retry to ignite into a lock out I wire jump the vacuum switch and it works properly than i replace the...


Before calling service technician, read manual for troubleshooting and yearly maintenance requirements.
Open following links to identify same-similar product and download manual.
Once you have product showing on page, click 'specs-docs' tab to see use-and-care manual.
http://www.rheem.com/product.aspx?id=C24E3F52-A6A4-4BC7-AF5B-0DF23A7A0263
http://www.rheem.com/Products/tank_water_heaters/gas_water_heaters
http://globalimageserver.com/fetchDocument.aspx?id=c0471d58-5e59-4be6-96f7-68361b8fb515
Rheem site loads slow, and some manuals never load.
Typical power vent manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-power-vent-manual.pdf

I believe the 21VP is older and Rheem does not show older manuals, but manuals are generally generic enough to help greatly. Year of manufacture show as second and third digit of serial number.

Lockout condition requires service technician and part replacement, or call Rheem and have them send part.
I found one link that talks about FV lockout that may or may not pertain to your issue:
