Not enough information is given.

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.

My Rheem 40 gal. LPG water heater has sat for two years. When I attempt to light the pilot manually, it goes out after I release the push button valve knob?


The pilots have to warm up, hold that button down for a min, then let it go, it should stay on. Then crank up the pressure, it should light. If you are worried about it, call your gas man, he will check it out. Hope this helps.

How do I light my Rheem water heater if my peizo ignitor switch isn't working


Remove the burner access cover under the control valve. Press the pilot light button (gas control) and hold it down. At the same time, light the pilot. Continue to hold the lighting button for a few seconds until the thermocouple heats up. Release the button. Twist the gas control knob to the ON position, and the burner should fire up after a few seconds. Replace the access cover. Good luck.

Pilot light won`t stay burning on my hot water tank. I replaced the thermacoupler;no difference. It is a Rheem Gauardian system ''Fury''. 40 gal in a wellsite skid trailer. Thanks


The thermocouple is a screw in type or 2 wire. You can check the dc MILI volt output with a multimeter. It should probably make 500-750miliVDC when heated. Be sure no plastic from the thermocouple wrapper was on the threads, will not work like that. To light did you push and hold the valve for 30 sec after lighting the pilot then turn to run after the pilot was burning? There is a slight chance the gas valve is bad but not likely. Check the wireing on the thermocouple to the gas valve.

Sometimes it is necessary to turn the temperature dial all the way back to the coldest setting with the gas valve in the off position in order to reset the safety on some gas water heaters. Give it a try

No Hot Water in morning


Remove the cover then the access cover, then you can see inside,
the pilot light is probably out.

If out turn the gas off, then get a long match, grill lighter,or piece of paper ready to light, you should be able to see the little thin
gas line that runs inside the tank and see where it connects to,that is where you need to light, now that you see where to light, turn gas knob to pilot, and press down and at the same time light the pilot.
( blow into the pilot area before putting match inside to make sure no gas has built up inside) Hold down the knob for a minute then release, if pilot goes out try again and hold down longer, if you hold it for 3mins and it does not stay lite, the thermocouple is bad and you will have to replace it.
