Richmond 5v40-7 gas water heater. Burner lights completely but flame is very low. Does not grow above 1/4 inch.


Is flame clear blue or yellow?
Yellow flame, clean the flame arrestor screen
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html


Flame is blue:
Low gas pressure.
Bad gas control valve.
Dirty combustion parts.
Clean the water heater parts and catch up on maintenance.-

Rheem 300170 HWS service manual


1) Rheem does not post service manuals.
Call Rheem and ask why, since the other big manufacturers, AO Smith and Bradford White do post service manuals.

2) You need new propane gas control valve, and matching combustion parts to fit existing tank.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-Water-Heater-parts-catalog.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/IMG_1826-LP-burner-450.jpg

3) Rheem does not recommend changing gas type, especially from natural gas to LPG.
LPG is higher pressure, and burns much hotter and requires cast iron burner, unlike the lighter-weight metal used for Natural gas burner.
The manifold tube and thermocouple must match the gas control valve, and gas-type and have correct thread for propane.
The combustion chamber and heat transfer surface can also be heavier metal for propane heaters.

Piloit light on606 gas water wont satay lit


If pilot light has gas, then ECO is not tripped so water heater has not experienced overheating event.
Remaining suspects include bad thermocouple, bad air quality, not enough air, bad vent, water dripping down vent, backdraft down vent, hot attic with bad ventilation, low gas pressure, air in gas line, dirt water or debris clogging gas control thermostat, bad gas control thermostat, tripped FVIR, dirty pilot orifice, dirty combustion parts, damaged combustion parts from exposure to trace chemicals like bleach and wax.
Suspects include one or more from list above.

Start with thermocouple.

Not enough information is given.
Add a comment any time.

Why did water heater turn off?
If water heater was exposed to flammable vapors like gasoline, paint thinner, paint, leaking gas line, etc, then the 'single use gas shut off' might have tripped.
If water heater is older and the burner parts never cleaned, then combustion chamber can experience overheating, and that can trigger 'single use shut off.'

Instructions for lighting water heater should be printed on side of heater.
Follow the instructions and see if water heater will light.
Then check if flame is clear blue. If flame is yellow-orange, then burner parts need to be cleaned.
If water heater will not light, then combustion parts may need to be cleaned, and air intake cleaned, and 'single use shut off' could also be tripped.

Also possible that gas control valve thermostat is bad.

Pilot light will not stay lit on GE 40 gal. gas water heater tank


You have tank-type gas water heater:
Gas water heaters need working thermocouple, adequate incoming fresh combustion air with no trace amounts of chemical, open vent to outside that drafts poison combustion product upward, clean burner tubes and combustion parts, correct gas pressure with no air in line, working gas control valve thermostat, no lockout condition such as tripped ECO caused by runaway heating and dirty combustion parts, and no lockout condition such as exposure to flammable vapors.

Our 40 Gallon Reliance 501 gas water heater stays lit for about 10 minutes and then goes out. Any idea what would cause this or how to fix it?


Many problems are solved by replacing thermocouple, but usually pilot will not light if thermocouple is bad. And some Reliance water heaters, the thermocouple is grouped with TCO and not generic part from hardware store.
If the combustion chamber is sealed with gasket, you might need spare gasket on hand before taking out the burner assembly to replace thermocouple.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0aBPsNg6vo

Gas water heaters can malfunction for many reasons.
Service tech is best resource unless you have manual and can take time learning parts and how to replace.

Gas water heaters require periodic cleaning of combustion parts and tubes.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html#troubleshoot

Other ez problems include:
Gas shut off valve not fully open and handle is not parallel with gas line, so gas is partially shut off
If water heater flooded, then replace heater.
Excess water vapor from bad venting rusted out the burner parts. Inspect burner for rust.
Not enough combustion air, for example the house was recently weather-tightened, or a louvered door replaced with solid door. Or air intake screen located on bottom of heater is clogged with lint or dust.
Very hot attic can cause pilot to go out.

Trace amounts of pool chemical, laundry chemical, process chemicals, wax, etc can cause damage to burner parts.
Low gas pressure can cause problem.
Air in the gas line.

Bad gas control valve.
If ECO was tripped, there should be no gas to pilot.
Gas control valve might have debris or water from gas line.

If FVIR event tripped FV sensor, that would explain problem, and you would need service technician.

If repairs cost more than $330, then buy and install new water heater yourself, same day.
