There is a big diffrence between a gas and an electric water heaters,, what you have on here is a 6 gallon water heater, it will take longer for electric to keep up hot water then it would for a gas water heater,,

SOURCE: Atwwod 10 gal gas/elec water heater won't work on elec.

THE LIGHTED SWITCH SHOULD BE THE 12V ENERGY SOURCE TO ACTIVATE THE LP SIDE OF THE HEATER. THERE SHOULDN'T BE A LIGHTED SWITCH FOR THE 110 SIDE. THERE SHOULD BE A SWITCH OR A COMBINATION OF SWITCHES. ONE ON THE WALL LIKE A LIGHT SWITCH AND ONE MOUNTED BEHIND THE HEATER.

Detecting gas and won't light


Open following link for troubleshoot error codes showing 7 flashes on Honeywell gas control valve is system lockout due to flammable vapor:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Honeywell-gas-control_error-Damper-series.pdf
The FV system in Rheem can be tripped by presence of flammable vapors such as gasoline or paint fumes etc, or it can be tripped if water heater was dropped, or mis-manufactured, or if gas control valve is defective, or if water heater is not getting adequate fresh air, or there is inadequate venting of combustion by-product.
When combustion chamber overheats, then glass vial breaks and damper shuts off air supply to water heater and it will not light.

How do I fill water heater


Once the hot and cold pipes are connected to water heater, then open bathtub spout on hot side, turn water on so tank begins to fill.
After tub spout is running full stream without air, then water heater is full and it is safe to turn on the heater.

Turning on gas water heater before tank is full can damage tank.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html
Turning on electric heater before tank is full will burn out elements. Replace elements.

It just stopped working last night. Gas kitchen stove works fine. Are there pilet lights on these things?


if its gas, it has a pilot light. the most likely thing is the thermal coupling is bad. if it is bad, burner flame will not turn on. it senses the tempurature to send gas to light burner.
