Is the pilot knob turned to the "On" position? If the knob and temp dial are set in the correct position, you may have a recalled wtr htr which requires a retrofit "reset" button that needs to be installed. Call the manufacturer;s phone # that's printed on the side of the water heater and give them the model # and serial # and find out.

I have a 650 delta thermostatic gas combination control on a Rheem hot water heater that won't turn to to the proper pilot or off position to relight it. We have looked everywhere for trouble shootin


Jennifer, the instructions posted by Rheems on the heater are wrong. You must first rotate the dial clockwise, use force (in our our case) to get the pilot to its position. The folks at Rheems are nuts not to check their instructions before printing them and plastering them on their hot water tanks. Disgraceful, period.

No hot water


If you're lucky, it's just that the pilot light is out. Find the instructions on how to re-light it. It involves pushing and turning the control valve, lighting the pilot light, and observing the burner to see if it's working properly. Is anything else in the house gas?

Rheem #22DV50-38,pilot light keeps going out.Thermal coupler has been changed.


Most gas water heater problems can be solved by cleaning burner parts and combustion chamber, and bleeding air out of gas line, checking gas pressure, and making sure gas shut-off handle is turned-on and parallel with gas line:
Many things cause pilot light to go out including dirty parts, air in gas line, and hot-unventilated atmosphere.

Rheem NatGas hot water heater model 41V50, basement flooded pilot went our how do I relight?


At the controls there should be a knob that says " Pilot"... "ON" Turn the knob to pilot and hold it down while lighting the pilot lite. Keep holding it down until it gets warm enough that when you leave it up the pilot stays on. Once the pilot lite stays on on it's own turn it to on.

Sometimes it is necessary to turn the temperature dial all the way back to the coldest setting with the gas valve in the off position in order to reset the safety on some gas water heaters. Give it a try

No Hot Water in morning


Remove the cover then the access cover, then you can see inside,
the pilot light is probably out.

If out turn the gas off, then get a long match, grill lighter,or piece of paper ready to light, you should be able to see the little thin
gas line that runs inside the tank and see where it connects to,that is where you need to light, now that you see where to light, turn gas knob to pilot, and press down and at the same time light the pilot.
( blow into the pilot area before putting match inside to make sure no gas has built up inside) Hold down the knob for a minute then release, if pilot goes out try again and hold down longer, if you hold it for 3mins and it does not stay lite, the thermocouple is bad and you will have to replace it.
