RHEEM RGLG-05EAUER Occasionally, on startup, there is a fair gas smell from the vents for a few seconds.


I think I'd have it checked for a bad heat exchanger. At the very least, make sure you have working Co2 detectors on all levels of the house. You should not be smelling gas from your hear ducts. This is not normal. If anyone in the house is developing a head ache, that would indicate a heat exchanger problem.

2 Stage Furnaces More Comfort and Save Money


Two stage hot air furnaces can save you money and make your high efficiency furnace even better. With your furnace running at low fire instead of cranking up to the highest heating output in mild weather you can be more comfortable while saving money.

Many people think that they are getting the best they can get by buying a high efficiency single stage furnace. What they often don’t realize is that they could do better yet and for a few dollars more have a high efficiency 2 stage furnace that could keep them much more comfortable.


There are 2 stage hot air furnaces that are now available that will only run at half fire if the full fire is not needed. With a two stage furnace in mild weather when only a little bit of heat is needed, the furnace will have longer run times on low fire. This will keep you room temperatures from getting too hot before the thermostat reacts and shuts the furnace off again. This will help to keep your temperatures from overshooting the set point and help to keep your home much more comfortable.

Many of these two stage furnaces also have variable speed blowers that run at a lower speed when heating on low fire. This will also help to save money on your electric bill, because these blowers use very little electric when running at these low speeds. Air noise from the blower running at a high speed is also reduced.

If you are thinking of replacing or installing a hot air furnace, make sure that you ask your contractor to give you a price on installing a two stage furnace. The price difference probably will not be much higher than a high efficiency single stage furnace. However the comfort of the two stage furnace coupled with the electric savings will make the extra money well worth it.

If you get no pilot at all, check to see if any gas is getting through the pilot assembly. Try a very long match or butane fire place igniter while it is sparking.

Wont always fire up


You probably have tankless water heater.
What brand water heater?
Gas or electric?
Is this new installation or old installation?

For Rheem tankless:

Have a Fridgidaire GR6C-080C-16 furnace that runs for a few minutes then gas supply is cut-off. Furnace will then re-start and the run through it's pre-cycle, just as if the thermostat just called for...


It sounds to me like you have problems with the gas valve as you have eliminated pretty much everything else. I would check all wiring to valve,check for any breaks on the insulation and clean all connections.
When the burner goes out is the blower still running or does it quit then the burner go off? If that is the case I would think the thermal overload on motor was tripping. It makes me more inclined to suspect the gas valve due to the lack of any diagnostic code.
One other thing I would try is to check power to gas valve when burner is firing and see what it does when it cuts out.If it maintains power when gas shuts off then I would replace gas valve. Good luck and thank you.

Rheem powervent ignites then goes out, electronic ignition.


Sounds like a bad thermocouple. This part sends a millivolt signal to keep the gas valve open but shuts it off when it cools - or if something goes wrong with the ignighter - to prevent fires. It's easy to replace and not super expensive. See your local Rheem dealer.

Furnace will not light


What code is the control board flashing when it tries two or three times? Does it even fire? Does it go straight to fan and lockout?
