Question about Water Heaters

1 Answer

I have a ruud oil forced air furnace, but the model # says it is a Rheem ROBC-130. My problem is that the blower motor runs all the time, the furnace will fire and run for about a minute then shut off it will fire again in about a minute and do the same thing.

Heater blower won't start and we get o heat! What is going on with this Rheem REAA-080c


Earl, is this a furnace heater for your house? And are you referring to the blower that distributes the heat throughout the house? And does this unit have a flame exhaust blower? This last blower is a small blower in the unit itself, if it has one you usually can spot it.

I have Rheem Pvw50, 50 gallon water heater installed at home. For the past few days, there is a noise coming out of blower motor. What could be the reason?


Your water heat is at an age that I would recommend replacing the whole unit. That one cannot be too efficient and most likely has sediment built up on the bottom of it pretty bad.

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.

GX90-715A wont stay fired


1) Product manual has burner info page 11, maintenance 12, and troubleshoot flow charts starting page 17
Otherwise, Rheem does not post service manuals.

2) Post question on pro water heater forum.
http://www.thetankatwaterheaterrescue.com/forums/forum3/

3) Is air intake clear? Is the burner sooted? Is the flame large and clear blue? Is the vent obstructed? Does air draft when blower activates?

Keeps giving a code of ops on boiler and will not kick blower on


Are you certain this is a boiler? Furnaces use blowers; boilers do not.

Could you be referring to an induced-draft small blower motor that normally runs immediately on a call for heat?

Is there an electronic control board measuring about 6 inches by 8 inches visible?

We can help if you give us a model # and brand name. Does it operate by oil, natural gas, or propane (LP)?

My Rheem powervent2 water heater squeals while running


The power vent motor squeals when burner is activated?
See if you can oil the power vent motor.

If the water heater squeals when water is turned on, then remove heat trap nipples and inserts and install di-electric nipples from water heater department local home store.

Copy following link illustrations.

Fuirnace blower motor doesn't blow very hard and sound rough


Maybe if you put a drop of liquid soap on the shaft for the fan. Since it is a heater, I wouldn't use a lubricant like wd-40. GOOD LUCK. Soap is cheap. Hope it works.
