Question about Rheem Water Heaters
You need a new thermocouple - or maybe the Pilot flame is not lined up properly to the thermocouple? The thermocouple is a "sensor" that is heated by the flame - which in turn keeps the gas supply to the pilot light on. It the pilot light goes out, then the thermocouple no longer "senses" the heat of the flame, so it turns the gas supply off to the pilot to prevent buildup and explosion.
