Question about RHEEM 50 Gallon FVR NATGAS Water Heater 6YR 42V50S40F
Posted by Anonymous on
You can't bypass a flammable vapour sensor. it works on resistance not continuity. You can try moving the sensor outside for a while and it may reset itself...meaning that the resistance may fall back within range. You are best to have the sensor replaced by a qualified technician who can also verify that you do not have an underlying issue such as a gas leak which is causing the sensor to trip.

It sounds like your gas/air mixture needs to be adjusted. The flame should have just the slightest amount of white, at the very tip. The rest should be evenly blue. There is an air vent adjustment in the line to the burner, right after the gas input.
