SOURCE: Rheem #22DV50-38,pilot light keeps going

Most gas water heater problems can be solved by cleaning burner parts and combustion chamber, and bleeding air out of gas line, checking gas pressure, and making sure gas shut-off handle is turned-on and parallel with gas line:
Many things cause pilot light to go out including dirty parts, air in gas line, and hot-unventilated atmosphere.

Whirlpool Hot water heater pilot light keeps going out.


Your thermal couple needs to be cleaned (sand paper the portion where the pilot light heats it) or possible replaced. It sounds like it is not sending the correct signal to the gas valve.

Having trouble igniting the pilot light. Is there a solution to remedy this problem? Was working fine for a few year, and all of a sudden the water heater just stopped working


more then likely, its the thermal coupling thats bad. because if bad, it will not send gas through to light pilot. the coupling has wires on inside of it that transmit signals to turn on the gas supply. but it has to be in the pilot light flame to get hot. then it sends a signal to valve to turn gas on.

I have a gas heater that keeps shutting offf. The power is turned on but within hours it cuts off. mariaram@aol.com


the thermal coupling may be bad!! if the coupling goes bad it will shut down flame. its a safety feature, if gas comes out, and no flame it shuts gas off. the coupling is in pilot light flame and works on the same principle as a thermometer to sense the heat. good luck !!

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.

I have a Rheem Power Vent propane water heater model3 21VP4OE-1P that is acting up. The pilot lights and then the burner lights, but goes off after 5 - 10 seconds. It cycles like this 2 or 3 times, then...


check the thermal coupling for the pilot light. if it goes out it will shut down gas supply, its a safety feature to put out pilot light if the thermal coupling is bad. to prevent gas from leaking and causeing a fire. check coupling.

How do i use the reset button to turn the hot water to star heating again?


turn the dial to pilot and push and hold down red button while you light the pilot located inside water heater beside burner, keep holding button down after pilot is lit for about 1 minute. If you let go and pilot goes out repeat above steps and make sure pilot flame is heating up the thermal couple. If that fails replace themal couple.
