How can I find the manual to a rheem 21vp50-1 gas water heater? It does not seem available.


For troubleshoot and installation:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

Rheem manuals are generic, and contain no service information, or other useful information that would be unavailable from downloading current gas water heater manual.
One site posts talks about 21vp50 but posts generic American water heater manual instead of Rheem
http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/f918341a-6e8e-41b4-85be-5cde688317b9.pdf
Go to Rheem website, click on power vent, then click tab for Specs/Docs ... and click link for manual and then call Rheem and ask why they do not post service bulletins that match the required maintenance shown in product manual:

How to light water heater 660


Instructions for lighting Reliance 660 are located on the side of water heater just above the gas control valve.
If you are having other problems, read your product manual, or go to reliance for copy of manual, and read troubleshoot section:
http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/lit/om.html

Unfortunately Rheem-Reliance does not post service manuals for their product. However other companies do post service manuals that might be similar to your water heater

My Rheem water heater is giving a ECO failure, How can I fix this?


Question posted under Rheem water heater.
Model number and gas valve are unknown. Add a comment.

Following information applies to typical tank-type gas water heater, and does not apply to tankless water heaters, boilers, indirect heaters, solar water heaters, etc or for electric water heater.

Electric water heater ECO is located on upper thermostat.
Open top cover and ECO can be reset by pushing in red reset button,
Or ECO can be replaced by replacing thermostat. Add a comment.

Open following link to see typical tank-type gas water heater ECOs:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Intellivent-ECO-900.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Typical-gas-valve-500.jpg

The ECO will trip at 180-200 degrees F.
This happens when the thermostat fails, then the burner stays on, and the water will continue heating.

With most water heaters, the ECO is one-time use device and the gas control valve is replaced.
Some water heaters have resettable ECO, but the overheating problem has to be solved.
Each water heater is different.
Contact Rheem or read manual for correct procedure.

If you have intellivent gas control valve, open following links for typical service manual:

We have a bradford defender model # MI403S6FBN7. How do we reset it. lost manual


Water heaters are a huge field of knowledge. Problem is not 100% clear.
There is a resettable thermal switch on the combustion door. This switch is round and has two wires that come from gas control valve. Thermal switch trips when combustion parts have not been cleaned and they cause overheated condition, or sensor reads temperatures above 180, or thermal switch has gone bad, or gas control has gone bad.

I have a richmond power vent water heater model number 6G40POW-40F.It will run for 2 min then shut itself off then restart and do the same thing all over.Then 2 lights come on and it wont run. Any help...


Fastest way to solve water heater problem is call plumber or service technician.

Open following link for typical error codes for intellivent gas valve found on newer Richmond/Rhemm power-vent gas water heaters:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Intelli-vent-gas-valve2.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Intellivent-service-manual.pdf

There is no 100% sure way for novice to repair gas water heater.
This is because electrical parts have to ohm-tested using information from service manual that is typically not sent with new water heater.
Also parts have to be cleaned. The gas pressure checked, air in gas line removed, burner tubes and pilot tube and combustion chamber cleaned, burner parts inspected for problems, air intake cleaned, exhaust vent tested.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html#troubleshoot

Best way for do-it-yourselfer to solve water heater problems is to learn as much as possible about specific model by reading product manual that comes with new heater.
The manual will show error codes.
Then keep up with yearly service recommendations shown in manual.

The problem requires looking at manual and service handbook, except handbook doesn't show most recent water heater.
My first check point would be gas supply, and then vent draft, and then air supply.
Take off front cover and try lighting again to make sure air supply is not problem.
Review lighting instructions.
If there is no gas, and gas is turned ON, then gas control valve is suspect.

It sounds like an incorrect gas/oxygen mix. When installing a new heater, one of the most important things to due is to check the manual for minimum acceptable gas line and pressure. If you gas pressure is too much, or too little, you can burn a brand new heater to the ground really quick.

Not only is it important to have the correct gas pressure, but the piping size for available gas is very important too.

Id say with the issues you are having, start from scratch. Goto your manual and make sure the minimum gas line has been installed. Then if you are going to do this yourself, you need to purchase a monometer to dial in the gas valve on the heater. Without a monometer you should not be installing any gas appliance. All minimum and maximum requirements will be in the manual.
