SOURCE: HAE A GE WATER HEATER MOD PE50TA. WANT TO INSTALL

Hi .. you would be better off with a double pole switch. That way all the power is disconnected from the heater when the timer turns it off.

Is the Richmond 6g40-34pf hot water heater a model with or without powervent


According to photos listed for that specific model... it is NOT power vent.
It is ordinary atmospheric gas water heater with 3" vent pipe

Vacation mode hot water heater


GE is made by Rheem.
Sounds like water heater is short cycling.
Copy following link to troubleshoot by type of gas control valve, including error codes, and instructions how to replace each type of gas control valve.

Unforturnately Rheem does not post service manuals, and refers customers to call service technicians... so wonder where these guys get service manual... or maybe they guess at it.
However 2 year old water heater is under warranty. The date of manufacture shows on poduct label serial number. 3rd and 4th digit of serial number are year of manufacture. Parts are covered in second year. Rheem might require plumber to validate single-family residential installation.
In any case other companies post service manuals that cover same gas control valves. These manuals apply to Rheem.
Only difference between Rheem/GE and other brands is type of FV system.
If the air arrestor screen gets clogged (not likely with new heater), the intake air slows down causing vent to slow down. Same amount of gas is still being released and burned, causing combustion chamber to overheat. As a result, the TRD glass vial breaks and air intake trap door springs closed. At this point the gas control valve will usually signal error flashes indicating lockout. Shutdown is usually less problematic to homeowner than allowing too much gas to accumulate inside burner at once, causing risk of explosion. Gas appliance are dangerous without doubt.
Call plumber to check everything might be safest route, especially since low gas pressure is one possible cause of short cycling. And you will be comfortable afterwards knowing who to call and that gas appliance is check out professionally not to have defects that will cause problems down the road.

Richmond powervent model 6G40PV-40F Lockout 4-2 blink. What's wrong. What do I replace to fix?


1) Rheem-Richmond does not post service manuals:
Copy following link to identify service manual by type of gas control valve:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

2) For lockout, the air intake might be clogged or combustion parts dirty, causing overheating which will break TRD glass vial. Gas control may need to be replaced. Reset gas control by rotating knob to lowest temp for at least 6 seconds.

3) Call Rheem or local service tech.

Does the vent motor come on when you turn on a powervent hot water heater


`1) Copy following link to troubleshoot by type of gas control valve, blower motor links, pressure switch testing, and other professional resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent
http://www.thetankatwaterheaterrescue.com/forums/forum3/

2) Power-vent blower motor can go bad.
Plug motor directly into outlet, or turn on-off switch on, and see if motor works.
Check outlet for correct polarity, and for at least 80% of rated voltage.
Check vacuum switch. Blower creates vacuum, and the vacuum switch detect vacuum, and signals gas control valve that burner sequence can continue.
Gas control valve can also go bad. Wiring etc can go bad.
