"Pres sw open" means there is insufficient air flow. either the vent if blocked, or the blower turns too slow/ or died.

Anode rod Installation for Rheem Water Heater Model 41VR40N


Anodes last a very long time. It will be on a pipe plug going into the machine. As long as most of it is there, it's ok.

Replacing a rheem power vent water heater


1) Avoid Rheem.

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

2) Maintain water heater. Pay yourself 10$ a month in future replacement costs.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-maintain-water-heater.html

3) Read product manual for power vent specifications.
Keep in mind that power vent on top of heater can sometimes cover access to anode rod located on top of tank.

Rheem 21VP50-1P - power vent running non-stop.


Rheem does not post service manuals, but other manufacturers do.
Copy following link for troubleshoot by type of gas control valve.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

Also, scroll up on same page, on right side for heading title 'Pressure switch' for troubleshooting the pressure switch.

Don't forget to check anode rod to protect steel tank from rusting.

Rheem model 41vrp40n flashes twice and stops working


Error code means that you have electronic gas control valve.

Copy following link to identify gas control valve, read error code meanings for each, and download service manual relevant to each gas control, but not specifically Rheem since rheem does not post service manuals.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

The fact that water heater restarts, means that water heater is getting gas, getting sufficient air for combustion, thermister is ok, gas pressure is good, etc.
The fact that you unplug and replug water heater and it works, shows that you have power vent model.
Since water heater worked correctly before, 2 flashes with Rheem power vent model could mean that pressure switch has failed.

Where is anode located mdel no. 82yp30-1


Question posted under Rheem water heater.
Model number does not describe water heater.
Model number posted in question does not appear at Rheem, and does not appear in a web search for water heaters.
Here are options:

1) Add a comment and describe water heater in detail so expert can access more information

2) Contact Rheem.
http://www.rheem.com/Contact.aspx

3) If this is tank-type water heater, the anode is located on top of heater.
Look for 1-1/6" hex nut located under a plastic plug.
Some anode rods are connected to the hot-water nipple.
Sometimes the top cover has to be removed to find anode hex nut.
I have used impact wrench on anode, and could not remove in some cases.

I need anode rod for my rheemglas fury model # 81V52DT. do you know what the part # is or maybe the dementions. There seems to be several diffrent ones out there. Thanks


Anode rods are generic and available from local plumbing supply store or internet.
Just cut it off so it drops into the tank without touching the bottom or sediment on the bottom.
If there is not enough room above the tank to install new rod, then buy anode rod with sausage links.

Where is the anode rod located on the rheem 81VP20s


Anodes are located on top of water heater.
There are no hard fast rules for location, either by model number or brand.
Most times the manual is likewise vague.
1) There is hex head visible on top of tank.
2) Hex head is located under a plastic cover
3) Hex head is located under metal top, so remove screws holding top, and lift top off to view hex head
4) Anode is connected to hot water nipple.
5) With 9-12-15-and lifetime tanks, you can have 2 anode rods, and each has to be made of same material to work properly. Usually magnesium-aluminum instead of aluminum.
But if you inspect and change anodes frequently to prolong life of tank, then one is as good as the next.

Open following links shows Rheem anode rods
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-Ruud-anode-rods.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-Ruud-water-heater-parts-guide.pdf
Tech resistor anode rod has resistor added to prolong life of anode.
You can cut rod off to fit size of tank. You want anode 5-6" from tank bottom so sediment build-up doesn't reach anode.
Anodes are standard 1-1/16" hex head.
