How do I bypass the Honeywell damper assembly on the rheem G100-200


Damper is built into gas water heater.
The damper is part of the firing sequence, and required to draw air into combustion chamber.

Damper stuck


Unknown if this is new installation or older installation that stopped working, so we're guessing
Damper is sold separately. Refer to part numbers in product manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Whirlpool-flue-damper-manual.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/Review-Whirlpool-Flue-damper-gas-Water-Heater.html
Call whirlpool Warranty and Service department 1-877-817-6750/ 12 years parts coverage for single-family residential installation when installed by code and information shown in product manual, and maintained as showing in product manual.
Clean air intake located on bottom of unit as shown page 24-25 product manual... the problem might be not enough incoming air supply.
Review manual for correct venting.
Check outlet for 80% rated voltage and for correct polarity, and for ground continuity with manifold tube located under gas control valve.
Troubleshoot by type of gas control valve:

Call local service technician. Call installer.

1) Copy following link to troubleshoot by type of gas control valve:

2) Otherwise Rheem-Ruud does not post service manuals

3) Sound like bad gas control valve thermostat.
Newer Honeywell electronic controls can be replaced without draining tank.
Older mechanical controls are replaced by removal from tank after tank is drained.

Wiring diagram on whirlpool gas water heater


Whirlpool is AO Smith tank-type heater.
Year, model, type of heater not known.
So add a comment and then expert can look up the manual.

You probably have power vent, or dampered water heater, otherwise the only wiring would be for thermopile, thermal reset, and igniter.
Power vent, or dampered, of flow control water heaters plug into outlet, and wires from gas control run to the various components.
Copy following link to troubleshoot by type of gas control valve:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Review-AO-Smith-Effex-water-heater.html

Don't forget to add comment and include model number that shows on label located side of tank.

Detecting gas and won't light


Open following link for troubleshoot error codes showing 7 flashes on Honeywell gas control valve is system lockout due to flammable vapor:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Honeywell-gas-control_error-Damper-series.pdf
The FV system in Rheem can be tripped by presence of flammable vapors such as gasoline or paint fumes etc, or it can be tripped if water heater was dropped, or mis-manufactured, or if gas control valve is defective, or if water heater is not getting adequate fresh air, or there is inadequate venting of combustion by-product.
When combustion chamber overheats, then glass vial breaks and damper shuts off air supply to water heater and it will not light.
