Hello ANGUS,I think 3 blinks is open pressure switch,try taking the door off the furnace.The upper left hand side is a round black box with a hose attached to it .Gently tap the switch(box) and turn off power for 2 seconds andback on,then call for heat.the blower door has a sticker inside that tells you just what the blinks mean.

If the blower motor runs continousley and the thermostat is not set to fan then the intergrated control board is malfunctioning and must be replaced. Usually because the relay that energized the motor is bad. If you are refering to the inducer motor running all the time then the pressure switch is open and must checked for a restriction in the flue pipe or blockage in the vent.

New thermocouple on GE/rheem water heater pilot still won't lite


does the pilot go out when you let off the button? Or does the pilot not light at all?

If you dont get any gas at all to the pilot the the gas valve is bad.
Of you get a pilot light that goes out when you let go of the button then the therno couple is not reading the flame (needs adjustment so the pilot flame touches it)
did you kink the new thermocouple? or over tighten it at the gas valve.
if it was kinked its now toast,cant straighten them. If kinked and starightened the fluid inside has broken the inner seal and wont work.

Rheem furnace not heating.


Sounds like limit switch is tripped if all it does is start the fan. Is ventor motor running? If not check limit switch should be located below burner compartment. May be manual reset but probably not. Tap on switch and then check filter to see if plugged.

My water heater (model # PTG-74PVP-2) keeps shutting off and flashing C7 76. If I turn it off and back on it will stay on for a little while and then shuts its self back off.


Does your Water Heater have a pilot to light the main flame?
Here is what I usually send to those with Pilot lights, and Thermo Couple problems:

One possibility is that the Thermo Couple is beginning to fail'
What is a Thermo Couple? (TC)
The Thermo Couple (TC) is a small Rod-shaped device with a couple wires coming out the bottom.
The TC actually generates a small electrical current from the heat of the Pilot.
This electrical current is sensed by the control board, or the Main Gas Valve.
As long as there is a pilot, it is safe for the Main gas valve to open, and admit the large amount of gas into the heating burner.

Now-- What helps this TC work the best?
It needs to be just at the edge of the pilot flame--- Not too much in the flame, or the resulting poor combustion of the pilot flame, results in soot forming on the TC-- which insulated the TC from sufficient heat.
Obviously the TC has to be clean (of soot) in order to receive enough heat, to generate the needed voltage to tell the valve that it is safe to open.
And age does deteriorate the TC-- some last a few years, but that is about the end of life for most.
Replacing requires getting down where the TC is, and with a screw driver (usually)-- lossening the bracket that holds the TC. Pay attention to where the wires are routed, and any polarity indicated on the old wires, and duplicate on the new one. Duplicate routing, and polarity, and position the new TC at the edge of the pilot flame.
Pilot flame is maintained by pushing some over ride button-- for a minute or two, until when you begin to release the button, you can feel that the voltage generated by the TC is now holding the pilot valve open, instead of your pressure on the 'start' button.

Any further Questions, let us know..

Rheem Power Vent model RN 21-VP40-1 gas water heater no hot water but venting runs. Is it the ignitor or the thermostqat? About 10-12 years old.


it may be the thermal coupling that is bad for the pilot light. if it goes bad the flame will go out. replace thermal coupling. so if the pilot light is out then it will not heat water. or turn burner on.

I can't get my pilot light turned on. I have a Rheem powervent water heater and I can't turn it on. I keep getting an error message that says "FVD interface failure/miswiring". What do I have to do to...


Hello,
Most likely your flame sensor wiring is partially burn't or has an open circuit fault that's giving you the error message. This wire starts at the gas control and ends next to the pilot assembly. It can easily be replaced using a small wrench to unscrew the end connector from the control and the flame sensor rod at the pilot assembly. Call Rheem and see if the water heater is still under warranty, but even if it isn't they can most likely order the part you need for you. The phone # is on one of the data decals on the side of the water heater tank. They will need the model # and serial # to order the part. Be sure you unplug the unit before working on it! Douglas

Model: 21v30-7p, pilot wont stay lit


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.

I've got no heat. Going by the control module, white rodgers p/n 50E47-847, I'm getting a lockout signal and ign. cycles exceed. I shot across the Ignitor, to check resistence and it read > 1.000 M and...


Try turning off the thermostat, and the curcuit breaker for the Furnance isside the Breaker box, wait about 15-20 minutes and turn the breaker back on, this should reset the thermostat and clear the lock-out, and you should be able to obtain heat, if the Furnance is displaying a code you will have to find out the meaning of the code and do the necessary steps on the furnance cover under troubleshooting.

How do i use the reset button to turn the hot water to star heating again?


turn the dial to pilot and push and hold down red button while you light the pilot located inside water heater beside burner, keep holding button down after pilot is lit for about 1 minute. If you let go and pilot goes out repeat above steps and make sure pilot flame is heating up the thermal couple. If that fails replace themal couple.
