My gas was turned off for 4 days. after being turned back on the pilot will light and the burner fires up but shuts of in 10 minutes


If heater has a sealed front door the air intake filter is probably clogged. Remove the door and vacuum out all the dust and debris in the inside. Then use an air compressor to blow down thru the filter and force out any dust caught in the underside of the filter. Reinstall assemble heater and relite. If problem continues replace the gas control. If unit does not have sealed door just replace the gas control

My smart water pilot is on but it is not heating the water tank


GE is Rheem.
Models change frequently.
Copy following link for troubleshoot resources by type of gas control valve.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

Newer water heaters require frequent air intake cleaning.
To do this with Rheem requires removal of combustion parts, and then air compressor to blow out screen.
It is probably time to have a plumber give water heater a catch-up on recommended maintained, such as checking gas pressure, bleeding gas line, checking vent draft, clean combustion parts, clean air intake, check if gas control is working correctly.

We have a Richmond Tankless water Heater that is flashing between A1 and 21 and not heating the water.


Error 21 means the air intake cover problem.

Malfunction of Air Intake Filter Switch Ensure air filter door is properly seated.
Ensure front panel is properly installed.
Error codes here: http://www.palomastore.com/paloma_error_codes.html

Richmond is Rheem
Typical manual shows regular maintenance on page 29:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-RTG74IndoorOutdoor_owners.pdf
The word maintenance is used throughout manual.
Tankless are prone to lime build-up and should be de-limed each year, and cannot be exposed to more than 11 grains of hardness in the water.

Working on a 3yr old rheem water tank 22v50f1, pilot doesn't stay on, replace theromcouple and problem persist, cleaned air intake screen... what do ??? air intake issue ... any recalls... chimmey is not...


I would remove burner assembly and clean pilot orifice to make sure you are getting strong pilot flame. I would also check the position of thermocouple. If it is laying on bottom of combustion chamber I have had this make new thermocouples go bad.
Also check the height of flue where it goes thru roof. With the newer water heaters with bottom air intake I have had problems with the pilot being blown out due to no other way for air to escape if you have a downdraft. Flue should be higher then highest point on roof.
If all else fails I would replace gas valve. Hope this helps you. Thanks

I have a well-x 250 the tank appears full of water. I cannot get any pressure in the top I tried pumping air in with an air compressor. right now I am draining the water out at just a trickle blowing air...


To get the water out so you can lift it knock a hole in the top next to the bend.then throw it in the garbage.250 is a big tank make sure you size the new one for your application.theres no fix $$$$
