Heater blower won't start and we get o heat! What is going on with this Rheem REAA-080c

Earl, is this a furnace heater for your house? And are you referring to the blower that distributes the heat throughout the house? And does this unit have a flame exhaust blower? This last blower is a small blower in the unit itself, if it has one you usually can spot it.

I have Rheem Pvw50, 50 gallon water heater installed at home. For the past few days, there is a noise coming out of blower motor. What could be the reason?

Your water heat is at an age that I would recommend replacing the whole unit. That one cannot be too efficient and most likely has sediment built up on the bottom of it pretty bad.

GX90-715A wont stay fired

1) Product manual has burner info page 11, maintenance 12, and troubleshoot flow charts starting page 17
Otherwise, Rheem does not post service manuals.

2) Post question on pro water heater forum.

3) Is air intake clear? Is the burner sooted? Is the flame large and clear blue? Is the vent obstructed? Does air draft when blower activates?

Rheem Power Vent Nat Gas

The flame sense rod is actually dirty. To clean this, open up the cover and you will see all of the components. The Flame rod is on the burner assembly. to remove the burner assembly, shut off the gas supply, loosen and remove the two silver tubes that come off of the gas valve, disconnect the blue wire. pull the whol housing out. Now clean the silver device that looks like a claw.

Is there a reset code for error 13

There is a four hour reset, however that will not fix your problem. You need a new burner assembly.

Richmond water heater goes into lockout condition, ignition failure and I have to turn the blower switch off then on to get the water heater to work. Its getting to be a everyday thing. Also would like to...

Start-point is to inspect and clean burner parts and combustion chamber, clean air intake, bleed air out of gas line, test gas pressure, test electronic gas control valve, check for venting issues.
As general rule, gas water heater manuals recommend professional service once a year that would cover most items listed above.
To see images, and for more reading and resources, look at your product manual and open following link:

Richmond/Rheem sells power vent blower assembly that cost about $300.
Your product manual shows part numbers.
Replacement gas control valve costs $300

Cannot light pilot on 4 year old heater rheem tells me part not available in supply house is this right part i need isvile that is broken below pilot light

I can't tell if you have tankless or tank heater.
Rheem has gone big into tankless the last few years and maybe first models don't have parts any more.

Even so, Rheen probably sells the whole burner assembly.
Most plumbers prefer to replace whole assembly so they're not doing a call-back next month.
Check with Rheem for whole assembly.

Another option is to roll the Rheem heater out of the way and install generic brand from Ace, Home Depot, Sears, or Lowes. Read manual cover to cover to prevent failure. Keep dust, lint and chemicals out of same room. Loosen anode rod before installing. Connect ground wire jumper to hot and cold pipes.
Fix the Rheem when parts become available, or use it as tempering tank to passively preheat incoming cold water, or set tank in wood box with glass cover and make passive solar tank.

Rheem 21VP50-1. On hot water for 3 days. Shut of and turned on ignition, no blower, no clicking.

Unplug the power supply for 10 minutes and plug it back in. If the standard start up does not occur, you have bad control valve or the Flammable Vapor Censer has trip the unit. In either case you need to contact Rheem for repair parts or a new heater.
