Rainsoft silver series regineration didn't stop after 2 hours

Our Rainsoft silver series regineration did not stop after 2 hours. I had to manually stop it. The clock is not moving. I think the timer motor is bad. Where do I find a new one and how do I replace it? Can I do this myself or do I need a service call?

    I have a four-tank RainSoft system. Two of my Silver Series controllers have stopped working and need to be replaced. If you are the original owner, they are warrentied. You just have to produce a sales slip and pay for the labor.

Aircondition builds ice on coil


Either lack of refrigerant, stopped up metering device or capillary tube/s, or lack of air flow (due to bad blower motor, or dirty indoor coil) Good luck.

The manual switch does not engage, found a wire spring in the box?

2) Examining the WH40 in my office, there is a clip washer that holds override lever in place against timer body.
This might be considered V-shaped spring.
Buy at local hardware store

Thank you for providing clear description of product:
Your water heater has intellivent gas control thermostat.
There are always problems with water heaters. It is a huge field.

1) Open following link for AO Smith service manuals.
I do not see service manual specifically for the GP series.

2) Open following link to identify gas valve and download typical service manual:
Some AO smith power vent models have intellivent gas valve, and some have smart valve gas vent. Older models might have knob-type gas valve.

Premier Plus Model#MHE62-30H-045DV Ser#45T421608 I just purchased this hot water heater.I had it professionally installed by a plumber.We had hot water before I went to bed but when I woke in the morning...


sounds like you have a power problem. or worst than that a leak . So lets look at the leak first. Turn off the water supply at the water heater on top. This valve should be on the cold side of the heater on top.

Turn it off, check and see if you have pressure in the house by turning on a faucet. It should run for a second then stop. That is good if it does. Leave the valve off on the heater and check that your breaker is on. Reset the breaker by turning it on and off.

Wait about 2 hours turn the heater back on and check to see how hot the water is hot then you might have a leak in the building. If there is not or little hot water. Check the wires where it connects to the water heater. You might only have one wire that is connected right.

The best thing to do is to get a amo meter and check to see if you have 220 if you dont have 220 you will not warm up the water the way it should.

Thanks Richard

The light below the green or orange button with 3 lines down is on what does this mean, I also need a manual which didn't come with my machine


Question posted under water heaters, but no brand or model number is given.
Question asks for product manual. And asks for interpretation of error code.

1) Look on side of water heater for machine information, and then add a comment and include all possible detail for best result, including brand and model number, and approximate age of machine, and whether machine is gas or electric powered.
Adding a comment with specific information will tell expert what answer to give, or expert might not be expert in your product and will suggest that new question be re-posted at fixya for another expert.

2) To find a product manual on your own, Google search model number of machine, and add the specific words to search parameter: instruction .pdf
For example search for: Rheem Pro40NE2 instruction .pdf

1) Model 41VR50N is Rheem fury gas water heater.
Look on tank label, the second 2 digits of serial number are year of manufacture.

2) Rheem does not show that specific model number, but has generic manuals for Fury series:

HOW DO YOU TURN THE LITTLE GREY BOX OFF COMPLETELY? HOW DO YOU BY-PASS THE GREY BOX?


The timer is a 24 hour type, designed specifically for use with electric water heaters.The simplest way to keep the water heater on 24 hours a day is to remove the "trippers". The "trippers" are the movable black and silver metal clips that are held on the edge of the time dial with thumbscrews. Unscrew the thumbscrew on all the trippers and remove the tripper for the time dial.

Just below the time dial, you'll find the manual switch lever. On some models, it pokes through an opening on in the door / front cover - on others it can only be operated by opening the door. Move this manual switch lever to your choice of on or off position. The switch will not longer be operated automatically - and will stay in the position you have chosen until you or someone else changes it.

Please rate this reply - good luck!
