1) common problem for this heater. Likely the pilot is igniting but the gas valve is not getting the signal back saying pilot is lit so open the main valve to burners. Easy fix with new pilot assembly. Good technician can diagnose this and change part in under 20 minutes.
To diagnose yourself go out after dark (to make pilot easier to see), turn on heater to make it spark. After it sparks 15-20 seconds pilot should be lit. With an inspection/cosmetic mirror you will either see the pilot sparking or lit. It will be in bottom right if burner cabinet, just follow the small silver tubing.
2) Second scenario, Pilot is not getting fuel. Could be clogged pilot assembly, stuck/faulty gas valve, supply line shut off valve not open.
In the event heater is in older, rusty/corroded condition there is the remote possibly of a hole in pilot tubing so gas isn't getting to the right location, just dumping into heater. If this is the case do not loose your eyebrows looking for pilot in scenario one, call a pro.

SOURCE: rheem digital gas pool heater fan code

The Fan code would indicate a problem with the combustion air blower. The is a pressure switch to indicate there is sufficent combustion air, and if not then unit shuts down. Either the fan isn't running, or there is an obsturction in the fan or exhaust piping, preventing enough air flow.
cfh would be call for heat, which would be a normal display when water temp is below setpoint
See the link below for a manual. Once you open the page look on lower right side for documents, then install manual

SOURCE: I have a Rheem pool

Hi,

The heater only works when there is (FFL) Fluid Flow..through it, check the pump to see if its operating, then the line strainer to be sure its not clogged preventing water flow, then the flow switch, it may have stuck in the Low Flow position...Look all that over and get back to me. we keep going until we sort it out.

Let me know, so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

What does ILO mean?


Ignition lock out
This happens when a safety feature kicked in and the heater tried to start up again. Turn the power off at the breaker for 10 seconds and try again.
It should fire up or give an error code for possible issues

PROPANE RHEEM POOL HEATER IGNITES AND HEATS UP, BUT 30 SECONDS LATER STARTS BANGING AND SHAKES


sounds like you have a bad thermal governor (regulates water temp inside the heat exchanger) or your pH has been to high and your exchanger is completely scaled up.

I just purchased a home that has a Rheem Digital Gas Heater for my pool / spa (Model P-M406A-EN-C) 399k BTU. I cannot find a manual on the Rheem company website. Any idea how I can obtain one?


They have good listings on their web site.
http://www.rheem.com/product.aspx?id=8B064EC5-B708-4821-9F2B-DEF3A2243F90
That link should be to your model. When you click on the link for your manual (installation instructions)l, if it doesn't download. Right click on the link, and select download
So what is the problem?

Heater Wont light


If it has been off for a while you probally just have to bleed the gas line out. Shut off the gas valve at the heater and then open the union at the heater. Turn the gas back on till you can smell gas. Shut it down and close the union then turn the gas back on and try it again.

I have a Rheem Raypack pool heater and cannot locate my manual. The model is pr266a-ep-c. Is there a way to get the manual?


If you run a search for Rheem or RayPak the site should bring you to a menu that will have most manuals.
www.raypak.com/uploads/6000.52AG.pdf

This link may help but I think it goes to an older heater, but it will give you a start.
