SOURCE: RHEEM 40 GAL ELEC TALL Water Heater 6YR SC 82VH402: my rheem 81sv40d water heater quit heating water. ...

I have the same problem about every 3-4 months. Mine is also about 10 or 11. It is usually the sediment at the bottom that causes this. Once the plumber flushes it, it works again. My problem is that I dont know how he did it and the vavle is at the floor level. I am never home when it is repaired. Regular maintenance (flushing) is how you avoid this from reoccurring. That is, if that is the cause of your issue.

How can I find the manual to a rheem 21vp50-1 gas water heater? It does not seem available.


For troubleshoot and installation:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

Rheem manuals are generic, and contain no service information, or other useful information that would be unavailable from downloading current gas water heater manual.
One site posts talks about 21vp50 but posts generic American water heater manual instead of Rheem
http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/f918341a-6e8e-41b4-85be-5cde688317b9.pdf
Go to Rheem website, click on power vent, then click tab for Specs/Docs ... and click link for manual and then call Rheem and ask why they do not post service bulletins that match the required maintenance shown in product manual:

Bought a rheem rete 13 off ebay


Question posted under Rheem tankless water heater:

Call Rheem at 800 432 8373
They will need serial number located on label on side of unit.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

Usually I recommend that people tear out their tankless water heater and sell it on ebay, and then install tank-type heater from different manufacturer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

I would be very reluctant to connect used gas appliance without a product manual, and service manual.

Richmond tankless water heater will not clear error code


Why is it always Rheem problems?
Every water heater problem at fixya is Rheem.
And Rheem doesn't post any service manuals, like the other two big manufacturers, AO Smith-American, and Bradford White.

Rheem 2012 manual says if error 13 still displays, then contact installer or service technician. Mo Money buddy.
This is about oxygen sensor, poor combustion, bad venting, inadequate air supply, failed sensors, etc.
Get more fresh air to unit and see if that solves problem. The call service technician, and get out wallet.
Copy following link for Rheem-richmond tankless troubleshoot.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

Maintain water heater according to instructions in manual to avoid common error codes. Of course this means you have to service the unit each month, and each year, without guarantee the thing will work correctly.

21vp50-1 rheem water heater, the ignitor is not working


1) Rheem does not show that exact model number, since they list current products only.
http://www.rheem.com/products/tank_water_heaters/gas_water_heaters

2) Rheem serial number shows year of manufacture on second 2 digits. So C06 was made in 2006.
Today's manual might not have troubleshoot steps that match older product.

3) 21vp50 is 50 gallon power vent water heater.
Open following link to identify product.
New models have Honeywell electronic gas valve with LCD flashing error codes.
http://www.rheem.com/product.aspx?id=C24E3F52-A6A4-4BC7-AF5B-0DF23A7A0263
http://waterheatertimer.org/gas-water-heater-timers.html#Rheem

4) Sample manual for newer power vent models shows error codes and troubleshoot steps:
http://globalimageserver.com/fetchDocument.aspx?id=a92c7d0e-8a95-48ba-8810-cd714f33d47a

5) Earlier Fixya answer suggests where to buy ignitor for 21vp50:
PART #HSI51409A
http://www.fixya.com/support/t3641891-rheem_21vp50_1_igniter_stopped

6) Your manual should show troubleshoot steps and expanded parts list.
Always save manuals like gold, and save searching later for a manual at Fixya.
If we can't find the manual, then our answers are limited to suggestions and guesses, since we're not on-site and can't perform troubleshoot steps for you.

7) Post your question on professional water heater forum
http://www.thetankatwaterheaterrescue.com/forums/forum3/

8) Call Rheem and they can possibly suggest which local service technician will work on that model:
2600 Gunter Park Drive East
Montgomery, Alabama 36109-1413
Phone: 1-800-432-8373.

9) Call a local plumber.

10) Install inexpensive home-center brand gas water heater yourself:
