Rheem criterion ii a/c problems

Mry Rheem Criterion II was installed in 2007. I had flooding around the a/c-furnace that developed and spread in 12 hours or less. The air also stopped working. The repairmen said the pan overflowed from blockage of the drain pipe. He cleared it. The a/c then worked for less than 24 hours. He unclogged and cleaned so the a/c worked again , but not 100%. He put a auto overflow shut off switch in. That light was on the next day. No a/c again. A different sensor switch was then placed....after aditional visits for no a/c, he could not restore the a/c at all. He said that the fuse in the outdoor unit burned out and the compressor was destroyed. What can I do??? Do I need to either replace the compressor, or buy a whole new system, to cool the house? Did I get scammed?

Not a scam but you can get 2 opinions. Moisture removal is a process of closed circuit HVAC. It appears that you have a lot of moisture. IS there a leak in the building structure? Outside air or a swamp cooler can cause this. Sounds like the evaporator coil on the inside unit needs cleaning badly. IT is dropping debris in the pan and causing the flood. The installation of the switches was an attempt to fix the issue by a guessing. I doubt the final diagnosis unless it was a direct result of something the repairman did. He added so many additional switches that it could be his modification that caused the issue.

Roscoe007 shouldnt speak unless he knows what he is talking about, as a heater installer i am telling you the ignitor needs to be replaced, the very fact that the ignitor does light for about 30 sec than goes out rules out any issue with the themostat, replace the ignitor!

Drain valve plastic slow leak 81V-80D


If the drip is coming out of drain valve: Put a hose cap over end of drain valve.
If water is seeping out of cracked drain vale, then replace it.
If the leak is seeping around previously sealed threads, then tank may be rusted beyond repair.

High water in basement, the push button temp indicator reads both leds lite on both ends. i dont know who to reset


1) Call service technician.

2) If water heater flooded, contact insurance company for possible replacement coverage.

3) Manufacturer's suggest replacement of any flooded water heater.

4) Be very careful around wet or previously wet water heater.
Insulation inside tank will stay wet. Household electricity is grounded to water pipes that are connected to gas or electric water heater. Touching wet water heater can be fatal.

5) Read label on side of tank for product identification.
Read manual for possible part replacement.

I just pumped out the 7 inches of water in my basement that extinguished my flame on the rheem 21v40 gas water heater. How can I relight the pilot safely?


Manufactures suggest replacing water heater after it has been flooded.
Otherwise replace the burner and pilot assembly.
