Being gas and you are not a qualified gas fitter, the sensible thing to do is to get a gas fitter in to adjust /fix the unit
of course the unsafe thing to do is to try and do it yourself

Hi, i have a water heater (Rheem XG50T...) w/ a wifi module. Today, the temp / pressure relief valve drained a little bit and now my water heater does not work as the error A102 does not get clear eve


Error A102 ?
Where does the error code show on your model?
The XG50T appears to have honeywell gas control valve that flashes error code with series of blinks, and not LCD readout.

If the release of water got electronics wet, then the electronic parts likely will not function.
Release of water from TP valve means temperature of water inside tank exceeded the temperature-pressure rating of TP valve.
This is a safety feature.
Water from TP can indicate thermostat failure, or other less serious issues.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-TP-valve.html

Your water heater appears to have 9 year warranty.
Serial number located on label on side of tank will have numbers- 1st and 2nd digits are week of manufacture, 3rd and 4th digits are year of manufacture,
Call Rheem since they do not post service manuals.
Other companies post service manuals and are much easier for DIYers.

Gas valve faultdetected


Copy following link to troubleshoot by type of gas control valve, and read how to replace gas control:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

There are basically two types of Honeywell gas control valves.
One for atmospheric-vented water heater, and one for power-vented
For both types of controls: 8 flash + 3 flash error: replace gas control valve.
Water heater does not need to be drained to replace this gas control.

Why is gas boiler burning black sut


This is dangerous condition. Call service technician immediately, and they might put the unit out of commission until repairs are made.

Locate manufacturer's website, and call manufacturer to get name of local technician qualified to work on unit, and this will get the unit back into working service quicker.

Soot means burner is not burning all the fuel, and venting is slowed.
Possibility unburned gas is entering flueway, and could cause explosion.
Clean burner parts, check vent draft, check gas pressure.
Catch unit up on required yearly maintenance.

What should the gas pressure be on pilot?

Bradford White posts service manuals: Both before and after introduction of ICON (Honeywell) gas control valve
http://www.bradfordwhite.com/documentation/residential/gas.asp

Don't forget to clean air intake locate under combustion parts, using instructions in service manual. Or compressed air. Ample air supply will ensure that combustion chamber does not overheat because of slowed venting of hot combustion by-product that will trip the FV system.
And remove heat trap inserts if water pressure has problem or water heater is humming or whistling

Rheem power vent 2 flashes red led twice


Copy following link to identify gas control valve and download error code information by type of gas control, and possible service manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

If you have Honeywell gas control, then 2 flashes with three second interval can mean pressure switch has failed. And or related issues.

Scroll up on same page to find pressure switch heading among the troubleshoot links.
Or use Ctrl+F find feature on browser, and word search page for 'pressure'
Same page also has Rheem parts list 2010 so you can locate exact part number using model number that shows on label on side of tank.

Rheem does not post service manuals, but other companies do, and they can apply to Rheem (except for the FV system, which varies by manufacturer)

Best that you save product manual when possible because it will have important information including, parts warranty, error codes and parts list. Plus routine recommended maintenance that can prevent outages and error codes

My Honeywell Water Heater Thermostat will turn on for 30 seconds. Then it shuts down- wait 5 seconds turn it off EITHER with the ON/OFF switch OR by turning thermostat to off & back on immediately! If...


Time to call qualified service technician. And watch what that person does to learn about your water heater.
I assume you have Honeywell Icon gas valve. Honeywell makes different several model numbers.

Here is 'typical' Honeywell Icon gas valve service manual for Bradford White, that may or may not apply to your water heater. It shows testing for Icon and disassembly instructions, and error codes.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bradford-white-service-manual-44943-D.pdf

Gas water heaters today require yearly service that includes cleaning burner parts and combustion chamber, checking vent and air intake, electrical connections, testing gas valve, checking gas pressure, bleeding air out of gas line, etc. These are things you can learn to do by reading service manual, and making sure you have a spare water heater around to connect real quick if experiment goes wrong.
If Icon gas valve is problem, that control is modular and can be replaced without draining tank.
