Question about Rheem 40 Gallon FVR NATGAS Low WATER HEATER 6YR 22V40SF
Changed thermocouple, but it still shuts down
If heater has a sealed front door the air intake filter is probably clogged. Remove the door and vacuum out all the dust and debris in the inside. Then use an air compressor to blow down thru the filter and force out any dust caught in the underside of the filter. Reinstall assemble heater and relite. If problem continues replace the gas control. If unit does not have sealed door just replace the gas control

SOURCE: intermittent pilot and burner
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.

Thermocouple is probably not adjusted in to the pilot flame correctly, readjust and try again, if that does not work replace the thermocouple, not all brand new thermocouples are good right out of the bag
