Check the filter and/or air flow in general. It may be over heating.

My rheem furnace is running but isn't lit.


Not sure but its possible your thermo coupler is shot and needs replacing. If you have a pilot light it could be out but the furnace should not start if the pilot is out as there should be no oower getting to the controls unless the pilot is trying to let it start. A bad thermocoupler will not let the flame start.

Rheem 300170 HWS service manual


1) Rheem does not post service manuals.
Call Rheem and ask why, since the other big manufacturers, AO Smith and Bradford White do post service manuals.

2) You need new propane gas control valve, and matching combustion parts to fit existing tank.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-Water-Heater-parts-catalog.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/IMG_1826-LP-burner-450.jpg

3) Rheem does not recommend changing gas type, especially from natural gas to LPG.
LPG is higher pressure, and burns much hotter and requires cast iron burner, unlike the lighter-weight metal used for Natural gas burner.
The manifold tube and thermocouple must match the gas control valve, and gas-type and have correct thread for propane.
The combustion chamber and heat transfer surface can also be heavier metal for propane heaters.

Started car running on petrol for 5 minutes with lpg switched on, clicking noise from lpg tank, slight smell of gas, when fuel switched to lpg engine cut out. start again on petrol, switch on lpg again,...


could be number of problems but often this is caused by valve on the inlet manifold which is electricaly operated and then it allows the gas in but it is also vacumn sensitive so a perished rubber pipe could cause it not to sense the vacumn .best advice without seeing it is to visit a mechanic that is conversant with LPG conversion

On occasion, my furnace will not kick on at


If your Rheem furnace is less than 10 years old, it may store an error code to help you figure out if it is the furnace or the thermostat. Look at the circuit board for a blinking light. If you have to remove the panel that opens up the door safety switch, it will erase the code. Look for a small viewing port. Next time the furnace fails, prior to doing all the things you did last time, look thru the viewing port to count the number of blinks. Once you get the number, open the cabinet and on the wiring diagram glued to the back of one of the panels'\; there will also be an error code chart. It may give you a starting point where to look. If you have no error code, chances are that your thermostat is freaking out or has a bad connection. Hope this helps.
