Drain wont stop leaking


1) Copy following link for fixing drain valve on 38 gallon gas water heater with plastic drain valve.

2) According to serial number, your GE (Rheem) water heater was made in 3rd month of 2007. No service manuals are available from Rheem. Warranty period is probably 6 year. Unit appears to have reliable White Rodgers gas control valve.

Whirlpool 6th sense natural gas water heater 50 gal. Bought brand new today. Upon installation, discover low gas pressure running to unit. Turned out that gas line had under ground leak so had to turn...


1) Be careful before you Call Whirlpool 1-877-817-6750.
Be careful what you report so not to void warranty because installation protocol was not followed. Whirlpool will cover gas control valve, and possibly the installation of valve which takes about 15 minutes and does not require emptying water heater.
************So make sure you report installation that is consistent with installation shown in manual.

2) Whirlpool will also answer this same question later today with invitation to contact them.

3) Copy following link to identify gas control valve, and download service manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

4) If dirt or debris gets into gas control valve, it will cause it not to work. Such as broken gas line. Debris can enter gas line.
Or if too much pipe dope was used on gas connection, or stray teflon tape got into line and then into valve, or end of pipe got dirty during installation, and then dirt got into gas control.
Take off gas line and use vacuum cleaner to see if something can be removed by suction. Clean up the joints.

5) It appears you have ordinary Honeywell gas control valve on atmospheric vented water heater with 9 year parts-labor warranty..
Unknown error code, so it is hard to look up solution in service manual.
Add a comment if you want expert to look up error code in service manual.

I have a rheem powervent2 model pus50 with a new Robert Shaw thermostat


I would call Rheem. Get model number and serial number from label on side of tank. Also note identifying information from side of gas control valve.
And also call the installer.
All water heater manufacturer's have bad units. Period. They all do.

Now Rheem may throw you off and tell you to work through the installer. The installer can also contact Rheem while at your location.

If you installed this unit yourself, you may have to go back to the seller.
If you bought the unit online, then Rheem is best source of information about their products.
Rheem does not post service manuals. I think this is an insult to customers.
All water heaters have 1 year parts, tank and labor warranty for original owner and residential installation. Warranty beyond that can cover parts and tank, and may be pro-rated. Rheem warranty information is likewise difficult to find. Check the Rheem website.

Use circuit analyzer and check that you have correct grounding and polarity at 120Volt outlet. Then check if the is continuity between manifold tube under gas control and the ground prong on plug.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/IMG_9146-gas-control-thermo.jpg
Make sure you are not using extension cord.
Surge will knock out digital gas control valves.

Copy following link for troubleshooting by type of gas control, and that might give some information since other companies post service manuals:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

You can also post question on pro water heater forum, and find a question that EJ answered, then open question, and left click on EJ name to send message. He is their power vent guy. I'm probably not suppose to say that at fixya, but the customer comes first, and you have a water heater problem.

Error Im getting is C8 82


Before calling service tech, copy following link for Rheem-Paloma troubleshoot resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html
C8 is usually the PC board, or could be failed gas solenoid valve.
82 is gas-type-data-failure = program PCB for proper gas type, or proper altitude above sea level.

If this is new installation, Rheem-paloma might tell you to contact the installer.
If this is older tankless that worked before, then things point to failed PC board. Rheem-paloma may send you new PCB for free if unit still under warranty period for defect parts.

Rheem does not post service manuals, but will send instructions.
Hopefully the success rate for replacing your main PC control board will have better outcome than expected when replacing motherboard on your computer.
Perform regular maintenance to avoid some common error codes.

Need a gas valve for empire DV352SG S/N T49918889 was there a recall on this gas valve?


Being an ECS dealer, I'm not aware of a recall. The following link will give you a list of master parts dealers that you should use, if your heater is no longer under warranty. Select the one closest to where you live. http://www.empirecomfort.com/EMPIRECOMFORT/pdf2010/forms/Master-Parts-Distributors.pdf

If your heater is still under warranty and you still have your Proof of Purchase. Order the part through your local Empire Dealer.

Hope this helps you get the gas control valve you need.

Gas leak no solution refuse to pay rx 6000 when it is in the warranty period t


Actually, all air conditioners having compressor warranty for 5 yeas and comprehensive warranty for one year only. If your a/c under gas leak during comprehensive warranty period, you have rights to ask the manufacturer/supplier to do free gas charging. Check your warranty details and date of purchase.

When water heater is off a strong gas odor is present. checked by closing or shutting valve control assembly to off positon, where no gas ordor is present.


Hello,
You may have a leaking gas valve control. Make up a squirt bottle of soapy water (use dishwasher soap and water) and spray the On-Off-Pilot knob for leaks, as well as the pilot button. Look for bubbles forming. Also check all the gas line fittings and connectors hooked up to the water heater for leaks. If you are smelling gas, do not attempt to relight the water heater. Close the shut-off valve on the gas line and see if the gas smell goes away. If it does, you may have to replace your gas valve. Depending on the age and condition of your water heater, it may be more cost effective to replace the control or buy a new water heater. Reliance is a common brand sold at stores like Lowe's. Typically, parts like your gas valve will usually only have a 1 year warranty. Check the manufacturer decal on the tank to see what their actual warranty period is. If you find a leak on the gas line itself, you will have to turn the gas off at the natural gas meter before disassembling the line to fix it. Use a soft setting teflon based pipe dope for the pipe threads. If you are uncomfortable doing the work yourself or don't know how to proceed, then call your local gas supplier for help. Douglas
