WATER HEATER GOES OUT OVER NIGHT


you either have a back draft blowing out the pilot light, or a bad thermal coupling. if coupling is bad it will shut down the gas flow therefore shutting off pilot light. its a safety measure to stop the gas flow if pilot goes out. replace thermal coupling, that may do it. good-day ! but shut off gas first !

Pilot light will not stay lit.


More than likely the thermal couple is defective. The thermal couple is a safety device that shuts the gas off if the pilot goes out. If it is defective the pilot light will not stay lit. The thermal couple is the device that the small copper line goes to. It is mounted beside the pilot flame and the flame much touch the TC for it to work. If the flame is not touching the TC bend it until it is in the flame. If it is touching the TC then replace it.

Pilot light is not staying lit. woke up to cold water.cleaned flame sensor. still no luck. any ideas?


sounds like a bad thermal coupling! if the coupling goes bad it will shut gas supply off as a safety precaution. it acts similar to a thermometer, if its bad then you will not get any gas through. it is screwed into gas valve and shuts the gas off. have a good day!! replace thermal coupling!

Burner does not stay on .replace the gas control thermostat


it may be the thermal coupling. because if its bad it will shut the gas off. if the coupling gets hot on the end, it will turn gas on. it has to be in pilot light flame, to turn gas on. change thermal coupling. good luck !!

Rheem Power Vent model RN 21-VP40-1 gas water heater no hot water but venting runs. Is it the ignitor or the thermostqat? About 10-12 years old.


it may be the thermal coupling that is bad for the pilot light. if it goes bad the flame will go out. replace thermal coupling. so if the pilot light is out then it will not heat water. or turn burner on.

I have a Rheem Power Vent propane water heater model3 21VP4OE-1P that is acting up. The pilot lights and then the burner lights, but goes off after 5 - 10 seconds. It cycles like this 2 or 3 times, then...


check the thermal coupling for the pilot light. if it goes out it will shut down gas supply, its a safety feature to put out pilot light if the thermal coupling is bad. to prevent gas from leaking and causeing a fire. check coupling.

Auto pilot won't light


if its gas and will not light. its probably a bad thermal coupling. if they do go bad it shuts down the gas as not to cause a disaster. ( for safety ). replace thermal coupling. they are fairly cheap. but get one the same length as old one. or a bit longer.
