Question about Rheem RTG-66DVN Direct Vent Natural Gas

2) Call plumber immediately to fix improper combustion or improper vent before toxic combustion by-product kills family.
Gas appliances must vent toxic by-product outside and away from home where the gasses will kill the planet instead of you.

What type of heater is this? I need to know the model name and make and then we can go threw the process of how to do it. Most gas heaters do not have power to them and I only know of a few tankless heaters that do.

Most likely it's time to replace the thermocouple, the safety device that makes sure the pilot is lit. New thermocouples are cheap and you can find them at most hardware stores and the big-box places (Home Depot, etc.)
Here is a site with basic information to get you going.

I had the same problem with my Paloma a year and a half after installation...contacted Rheem\Paloma\Richman customer service (800-432-8373) and they recommened a local installer in my area. The technican diagnosed the problem as the "flow control valve"; he managed to get Rheem/Paloma to cover the part under warranty...I only had to shell out the money for the install.

if your on a private well, it sounds as though your loosing enough water pressure to shut the heater off,.(which is right before the water pump comes on),....tankless heaters turn on by sensing water flow, and of course off when flo stops,......water pressure tanks often need to be re-charged with air for pressure to stay even,....does your water pressure fluctuate?
