Honeywell Gas Valve inoperative

Can anyone help?
I have a Hurlcon gas spa heater with a Honeywell VR8305M4801 gas valve converted to LPG gas.
The regulator on my gas bottle malfunctioned and a large blast of gas came out of the gas valve on the heater.
The heater alarm indicates that the ignition has been locked out.
I cannot get the spa heater to ignight.
Does this indicate that a diafram has ruptured in the gas valve or is this a pressure relief?
Is it repairable?
Any help and solutions would be greatly appreciated.
Many Thanks

Gas valve is probably dead. With the numbers directly off the valve, you may find a place to sell you one. Don't try and repair the valve. Will probably cost as much to by a new one.

Good Luck

Thermostat Manuals

Most thermostats have a differential field on them of 5 degrees, that is non adjustable. The reason for this is so the furnace does not burn
itself out by cycling on and off trying to keep the the temperature you desire. If you have the old fashion round honeywell mercury type thermostat, you may want to adjust the preheat element on it. Take off the cover and there is a plate near the bulb with decimal numbers on it that have to match the ampere rating of the oil burner or gas burner, so make sure this is done.

If the little gray box has no trippers, the dial does not rotate,and the lever is on, is electricity being conducted to my water heater?

Maybe yes.
Open TP valve on water heater and see if heater has hot water.

If you want to test, then test across wires on terminals 2 and 4 for 240Volt. Test across terminals 1 and 3 for 240Volt.

To fix timer, buy new WG1573 240Volt clock motor.

I have a rheem powervent2 model pus50 with a new Robert Shaw thermostat

I would call Rheem. Get model number and serial number from label on side of tank. Also note identifying information from side of gas control valve.
And also call the installer.
All water heater manufacturer's have bad units. Period. They all do.

Now Rheem may throw you off and tell you to work through the installer. The installer can also contact Rheem while at your location.

If you installed this unit yourself, you may have to go back to the seller.
If you bought the unit online, then Rheem is best source of information about their products.
Rheem does not post service manuals. I think this is an insult to customers.
All water heaters have 1 year parts, tank and labor warranty for original owner and residential installation. Warranty beyond that can cover parts and tank, and may be pro-rated. Rheem warranty information is likewise difficult to find. Check the Rheem website.

Use circuit analyzer and check that you have correct grounding and polarity at 120Volt outlet. Then check if the is continuity between manifold tube under gas control and the ground prong on plug.
Make sure you are not using extension cord.
Surge will knock out digital gas control valves.

Copy following link for troubleshooting by type of gas control, and that might give some information since other companies post service manuals:

You can also post question on pro water heater forum, and find a question that EJ answered, then open question, and left click on EJ name to send message. He is their power vent guy. I'm probably not suppose to say that at fixya, but the customer comes first, and you have a water heater problem.

How do I install a T8845pv sprinkler timer. What do I attach to the two yellow wires

The timer is used to power a low-voltage sprinkler solenoid valve.
A solenoid is an electrical switch that opens and closes a gas line or water line.

The yellow wires go to your sprinkler system solenoid valve.
The solenoid is the valve that turns water on-and-off.

The 120Volt electric cable that runs the timer connects to the Line and Neutral terminals.
Black to Line terminal, white to neutral terminal

The clock repeats each 24 hours.
Lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer

The skipper wheel has pins >> press pin down for each day you do not want watering
Rotate skipper wheel counterclockwise until current day lines up with 14 arrow

Put tripper pins on yellow dial
Each pin represents 12 minutes of watering
To water for 48 minutes, put in 4 consecutive pins
Put pins on wheel at the time you want watering to take place.
To water twice a day, put pins at two different times, and do not put any pins between those times.

Hot water coming out popoff vavle put new one on still does same.

If you have public water, it may have a check valve on it. Many municipalities have done so. If so, when the water heats, the associated expansion will push water out of the temperature/pressure relief valve. The solution is to install an expansion tank. You'll need to know your water pressure and water heater tank size. To check the pressure, get a gauge that attaches to the garden hose outlet and turn it on. That pressure reading will determine what you have to set the pressure in the expansion tank to. Good luck.

In order to hook this up to the fan on your furnace, you will need to either have or install a Fan center @ the furnace. (Unless it is gas, and has a circuit board that will simplify the process) All this is, is a transformer, a relay, and a set (or two) of NO and NC contacts. You will need to run 3 wires from the thermostat back to the furnace, if you do not have them already. If you have a gas furnace with a circuit board then all you have to do is connect the three wires from the thermostat to the board. (R to R; W to W; G to G. If you are using an older furnace, or a oil fired appliance, power should go out of the transformer (secondary side) to the thermostat on R. It should then come off W and another wire off G back to the furnace. Connect to the appriately marked terminals on the fan center. Hope this helps
