Question about Rheem 40 Gallon FVR NATGAS Low WATER HEATER 6YR 22V40SF
The pilot light will light, the burner will light and shortly after the whole unit will shut down, have tried thermocouple replacement and cleaning the pilot light assembly. also put the old thermocouple back with no noticeable change in performance.at a loss for what else to try replacing a gas valve is costly and possibly the wrong thing to do, tired of fighting this beast.
Sounds like ur gas valve solanoide is done . depending on what type and age it is , it will have either manual or electronic ignition . one last shot wourth trying iis the jet may be slightly blocked, remove it and blow it out with a compressed air line do not try cleaning it with a wire or similar. put it back together and try firing it up. good luck .ps what part of the world do u live because these arent a common house hold appliance in ireland they are only used in commerical building,s over here.
