My Rheem gas hot water heater thermostat is not working. Pilot is lit.

That's the next step. Make sure the flame sensor on the pilot assembly is in the blue part of the pilot flame. If it isn't the gas valve will not open the main burner.

Three section gas heater lights with ignition but when you release to turn knob up it goes out was working fine last week

Try holding it longer before releasing the button and if that does not work, the thermocouple is probably bad.

Whirlpool sixth sense 40 gallon gas water heater pilot light is on but burner is not. Turn it off and relight it works. But only for a week. Repeat ignition, then for another week. Every week needs reset...

Copy following links for troubleshoot resources.

Clean air intake located on bottom of water heater
Replace gas control valve
Check for proper venting
Have combustion parts cleaned and serviced.
Call GE for name of local technician.
Read product manual for troubleshoot and maintenance information... model number appears on label on side of water heater

We have a rinnai convector gas heater and when we turn it on it fills the room with a horrible gassy smell.

There are a couple of things that can cause this odor. But, being sure it's really a gassy odor is more important. It must smell like "rotten eggs" to be gas. If that is the odor you're smell, turn the heater of and contact an authorized Rinnai dealer for service.

If however the odor does not meet the "rotten egg smell", there are other things that cause the odor, but it's not really from the heater.

If you have painted or stained within the last 2 weeks, the heater has picked up the odor of the fumes (which you probably didn't notice) and has made time 50 times worse. The same holds true for carpet cleaning or new carpeting odors. If this fits the scenario, discontinue using the heater for a week or two until the odors subside. In the meantime, if weather allows, air the house out. Also, remove and clean the heaters filter, before restarting the heater,

I hope this helped you to troubleshoot & solve the problem.

I have a Rheem water heater for a spa. Lately it's been intermitant whether it goes on not. Someone suggested that the gas company needed to install a lager meter/regulator as the heater isn't getting...

did the gas company check the pressure?
propane = "11" to 13" water collumn
natural gas = 3" to 4.5" water collumn

I have actually had the valve go bad, replaced, everything worked great.
also check the thermocouple. this is a cheap repair and the most common problem. if this doesn't solve the problem, then I would replace the gas valve. it is rare, but they do go bad. even had a bad one on a brand new water heater.

as far as water in the line, this too is very rare.
