After only 4 or 5 months of use, 2 burners have holes burned in them. Why?


What do you mean?
Burners DO already have holes in them!
that is how the raw fuel leaves the burners to be ignited.

What is happening with the heater, that is making you ask a question for help?
you may be using wrong terminology?

Water heater burner wont light


Problem is not thermocouple:
Thermocouple should be finger-tight plus 1/4 turn
Overtightening will short thermocouple against gas control valve, and solenoid switch will not open, and no gas will reach pilot once red button is released.
Tip of thermocouple has to sit in the pilot flame.
If pilot flame will stay on, then thermocouple is good.

Problem is not solenoid switch.
The gas control valve solenoid opens and closes gas supply to gas control valve.
On mechanical gas control valve, when you push down the red button to light pilot, then you are opening the solenoid and letting gas flow into gas control valve.
When heat is applied to thermocouple, a small electric current travels to gas control valve, and this causes solenoid to stay open.
If you extinguish pilot, then no current travels to gas control, and solenoid clicks off.
You can hear it click, and this is how you test it.
However, since you are getting gas to pilot light, then the solenoid is not the problem.

This leaves 4 possible problems:
1) Bad gas control valve thermostat.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/How-to-replace-water-heater-gas-valve.pdf
2) Inadequate gas pressure. Call gas company.
3) Dirty combustion parts. Clean the burner with wire brush and water.
4) Clogged air intake on FV water heaters: Rheem FV gas water heaters have glass vial that will break if combustion is slowed by clogged air intake.

Pilot light and burning will not stay lit. Basement flooded and after all water was gone tried to lite the burner. Could not keep it lit. Called a service tech and they came out and cleaned the burner...


Manufacturers say to replace water heater after a flood.
Flooded water heater can be repaired by replacing parts but warranty is voided.
And if water heater reached gas control valve, then gas control has to be replaced >> possibly the gas valve eco tripped.

I don't know how effective cleaning burner parts will be, since a small spider wed inside some of those tubes can cause water heater not to function. Small obstructions cause big problems.
I'm sure the plumber cleaned it out real well.
Find manufacturer using label on side of tank, find manual with parts diagram, and order burner parts.

It might be cheaper to install a new water heater yourself from box store

I read one article:
http://www.diychatroom.com/f7/rheem-hot-water-heater-pilot-burner-not-staying-lit-65755/
Guy has water heater that filled with water.
He says: "I decided to feel around. As soon as I put my finger into the hole under the burners I hit water. The air intake passage was filled with rain water, effectively chocking off the fresh air. A few minutes with a siphon tube cured the problem and the water heater works normally again."

I pipe (sump pump connection) near the hot water heater was leaking and the botton portion of the 'hot water heater' got wet, now the 'hot water heater' will not turn on. Should i assume the 'heater' is...


1) Electric heater, do not touch electric heater that is wet or has been wet unless power is 100% off.
2) Gas heater: Same applies to gas heater if controls are electronic, or if electric is grounded to hot water pipe.

3) Manufactures suggest replacing water heater that has been flooded.
Warranty is voided.
Set next heater higher.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

4) Electric: You can replace thermostats and elements, but if insulation is wet, the unit could short and be continual electrocution danger >>> and you can't operate electric heater with covers removed because cool air will keep thermostats from reading correct temperature.
5) Gas: You can clean out combustion chamber and replace gas valve and burner assembly, but new heater from local hardware or box store will save time and possibly money.

6) Use old heater as tempering tank if incoming water is cold:

Or use old tank as solar collector:

Need a blanket for Rheem Water Heater model #22VRP75.


You have 75 gallon gas water heater.
I install water heater insulation 3 ways:
1) Easiest: buy ready-made blanket from Lowes and use duct tape
2) Harder: wrap heater in ordinary fiberglass insulation and use tie wire
3) Hardest: Build a box out of blue styrafoam >> leaving room for air intake for gas water heater, and space around vent pipe

Instructions for gas water heater:
Do not cover TP valve.
No insulation is put over gas valve or air intake.
No insulation touches vent pipe.
Remember the gas water heater has to breathe air into the burner, and aftter combustion takes blace, hot gases escape so extra space is left around hot vent pipe to avoid fire.

Find age of Rheem: look at 3rd and 4th digit of serial number, for example 06 was manufactured in 2006.

I need to know if I could insulate the unit bellow


You can insulate it, fiberglass is the best material to use. Make sure not to obstruct the T&P valve operation, and leave the space open where you can get in to relight the pilot/ service the burner assembly. That space is also the combustion air intake for the main burner, so you must leave it open.

I have a whirlpool gas dryer lgq9857lwo. The


There is a flame sensor on the burner, it is probably the problem. It can get dirty(wipe the windo on it). Also with the drum out you have short circuted the air flow. Clean the inside as lint burns to well and is hazardous. The dryer may be equiped with a one time high limit switch, protection in case of over heating, it may need to be replaced. The thermo disc (thermostat-s coul be bad) Check all components with a multimeter. Ust the wireing diagram usually inside the control head, as a guide. GoodLuck. If this was helpfull, Please leave Positive Feedback. Thanks, SnugglePants
