Modern water heaters are well insulated to the point that adding additional insulation is not beneficial. Some units may also suffer from a blanket blocking air vents or causing condensation build up.

SOURCE: Rheem 50 Gal Hot Water Heater will not stay lit

On the back of the gas valve (where you turn the temp up) there is a stem that actually goes into the tank that senses the temprature of the water it could be dirty or buried in sediment depending on how old the tank is, or just bad. if the tank is over 10 years old i wouldn't bother replacing the gas valve, the tank is probably not far behind. A new valve will run around $100.00 maybe a little less. You wont find it at menards or home depot in stock but they may be able to order it for you. Menards sells rheem products or try you local plumbing supply house. REMEMBER TO RELIEVE THE PRESSURE ON THE TANK BEFORE YOU WORK ON IT. IF YOU CHANGE THE VALVE DRAIN IT FIRST!

The water heater is locked out. The following process should reset it.
1. Reapply power to the water heater and wait for 3 seconds for the system self-diagnostic check.
2. Within the first 30 seconds, the temperature dial must be rotated back and forth crossing the 120
degree mark at least six (6) times. This will reset the control and display a normal flash code
(slow blinking).

SOURCE: My Rheem hot water heater stopped putting out hot

If you are not familiar with the element, I would get someone that is familiar with one and have them do it. It's not something I would recommend you do based on your question. There's electrical, pressurized water tank, and a whole lot of water that may cause you to have a worse bad day.

Er3 flashes hot water will not reach set point


Had this happen to me before, if you have hot water from the boiler going in and out of the boiler mate and the temps are not rising within the hot water means more than likely you may need to remove exchanger and clean sediment off element, basically sediment creates a blanket over the heat source causing poor thermal conductivity. Things to check before removing heat exchanger

- outlet temp of boiler water to aquamate -inlet temp of boiler water to aqua mate= 20-30'F if low then bad thermal transfer or poor water movement
-make sure sensor is reading properly
- get boiler temp higher to speed up thermal gain in water heater

You should be able to control hot water temperature by adjusting the thermostats. Either or both may have failed, causing heating to increase to the maximum. The "spitting" is caused by boiling water. Likewise, the pressure relief valve is operating as it should resulting in the overflow you observe. You need to get your heater serviced immediately!!

How to take off the thermal couple off a ge sg40t12txk


1) Copy following links:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-thermocouple.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-repair-Rheem-TRD.html

2) GE is made by Rheem, so air intake screen is located below the combustion burner, as is the TRD (thermal reset device).

3) Modern gas water heaters, the FVIR, or FV system will trip when air intake gets clogged with dust.
This will slow venting of hot combustion gasses, except burner is still burning same amount of fuel. Overheating occurs, and that trips FV system.
Other brands require cleaning air intake screen and possible replacement of gas control valve, or FV sensor, etc. Each model is different.
Rheem_GE overheating will trip TRD, and glass vial breaks, causing air intake to close. Glass vial must be replaced, and possibly the gas control valve replaced.

Need a blanket for Rheem Water Heater model #22VRP75.


You have 75 gallon gas water heater.
I install water heater insulation 3 ways:
1) Easiest: buy ready-made blanket from Lowes and use duct tape
2) Harder: wrap heater in ordinary fiberglass insulation and use tie wire
3) Hardest: Build a box out of blue styrafoam >> leaving room for air intake for gas water heater, and space around vent pipe

Instructions for gas water heater:
Do not cover TP valve.
No insulation is put over gas valve or air intake.
No insulation touches vent pipe.
Remember the gas water heater has to breathe air into the burner, and aftter combustion takes blace, hot gases escape so extra space is left around hot vent pipe to avoid fire.

Find age of Rheem: look at 3rd and 4th digit of serial number, for example 06 was manufactured in 2006.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.

Burner does not stay on .replace the gas control thermostat


it may be the thermal coupling. because if its bad it will shut the gas off. if the coupling gets hot on the end, it will turn gas on. it has to be in pilot light flame, to turn gas on. change thermal coupling. good luck !!

Rheem Power Vent model RN 21-VP40-1 gas water heater no hot water but venting runs. Is it the ignitor or the thermostqat? About 10-12 years old.


it may be the thermal coupling that is bad for the pilot light. if it goes bad the flame will go out. replace thermal coupling. so if the pilot light is out then it will not heat water. or turn burner on.
