Question about Rheem 50 Gallon FVR NATGAS Water Heater 6YR 22V50F1
I have 3 year old Rheem PVS50. It works fine once plugged in to power supply. After it reaches the desired temperature it shuts off also. But it does not restart/ reignite/ kick back once water is consumed and it is again below desired temperature set in thermostate. I need to remove power supply and reconnect it. then it starts again and problem repeats.
The small red LED shows "two blinks and off for a while" signal when it is not working. The LED constantly blinks when working good.
I actually just installed one of these the other day, I found that the ignitor wires were straped to the gas inlet and they were shorting out,, I wraped them with electric tape and the unit came on and stayed as for the thermostat make sure your flue is clear of all obstuctions even outside, make sure on the vent on the top back of the unit is clean and no lint or dust has built up on it, you can take a small soft brush and just sweep it across it
