Rheem powervent with power glo ignition system, model # 21vp40h-1p. Power glo lights up fine and dandy but kicks off and the dag nabbit fan runs all day. Have to turn gas and power switch off and back on, I guess kinda resetting it all, and then the deally will ignite and start heating water. Main valve? ?

SOURCE: Rheem powervent ignites then goes out, electronic ignition.

Sounds like a bad thermocouple. This part sends a millivolt signal to keep the gas valve open but shuts it off when it cools - or if something goes wrong with the ignighter - to prevent fires. It's easy to replace and not super expensive. See your local Rheem dealer.

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.
