H250fd. I have the service light lit when I turn the system into standby and shut off my pool pump. Is this normal?


This is not normal. You have some sort of electrical short. Possible bad fuses, wiring, or board if its not showing a code on the display

Reliant 501 Natural Gas won't stay lit


Reliance water heater?
Thermocouple is good if the pilot stays lit continuously.

501 is older model. Unknown if this unit has FVIR protection and sealed combustion chamber or open air intake on front of unit.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Reliance-2006-Service-Handbook.pdf

With FVIR protection:
Get more fresh air to the unit.
Clean the flame arrestor screen.
Test and replace the thermocouple:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-thermocouple.html
Inspect and clean burner and combustion parts
Test gas pressure, bleed air out of gas line.
Replace gas control valve.
Test draft air by lighting match and see if smoke is pulled into the vent pipe at draft hood on top of tank.

How to light water heater 660


Instructions for lighting Reliance 660 are located on the side of water heater just above the gas control valve.
If you are having other problems, read your product manual, or go to reliance for copy of manual, and read troubleshoot section:

Unfortunately Rheem-Reliance does not post service manuals for their product. However other companies do post service manuals that might be similar to your water heater

Not enough information is given.
Add a comment any time.

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.

Open following link to help identify gas valve and see illustrations and read information about cleaning combustion parts:

1) Get more air to the water heater and see if problem continues.
2) Read the following pdf-s for things that might apply to your situation.

Does this water heater have a blower?
Is gas valve electronic? Or does gas valve have a dial?
If gas valve is electronic, have you checked outlet with circuit analyzer?
Did pilot light work correctly for a while? If so how long?
Where is water heater located? Hot attic? Closet? Garage? Is area dirty and dusty? Has air intake been cleaned?
What color is pilot flame? Clear blue or yellow-or-orange?
Have you inspected inside of combustion chamber for dripping water?

I have a OM22 directvent type 53r2, in the middle of night we thought it was out of oil & had the oil filed and now it will not re start, the red start light does not come on.


Does the heater have a code displayed? Are any other lights lit on the display? If not you may have a blown fuse. Have turned the power button off and back on? After the heater shuts itself down you have to turn the power button off and back on to get it to do anything. If this doesn\'t help, let me know and give me some more details and I can help you out.

Pilot light lights but when turnd on it does not get hot and shuts off in 1or2 minuts


This is normally caused by the thermocouple. This is the part the pilot light heats up to let the heater know the gas is on and the pilot light is lit. The heater will shut off if it thinks the pilot light is not lit for safety reasons. You will need to change the thermocouple for it to work again correctly.
