There is a flame sensor inside the burner unit. The sensor is like a photo cell that must see the light of the flame or it will tell the burner control to stop the power. You need to see if there is a soot film on the lense of the sensor and make sure the sensor is aimed straight. If the sensor is clean and aimed straight (and the problem persists) then there may be a clogged nozzle that is giving a poor flame and the sensor does not see a good flame therefore shuts down the unit. If the nozzle is at fault, then you for sure need to replace the oil filter. New nozzles are $4-8 and the size & spray angle is stamped on the nozzle. If there is still a problem, then you need to see if the pump is giving approx. 100psi pressure, then finally (the last step) would be to replace the burner control $60. Goodluck< Macgivor

I suspect that the flame is not traveling to all the burners within a given time so the flame sensor is shuting down the gas valve. Clean out the flame rail where the flame travels and carefully brush off the flame rod with an old tooth brush.

Rheem powervent ignites then goes out, electronic ignition.


Sounds like a bad thermocouple. This part sends a millivolt signal to keep the gas valve open but shuts it off when it cools - or if something goes wrong with the ignighter - to prevent fires. It's easy to replace and not super expensive. See your local Rheem dealer.

My oven will not light and there does not seem to be any gas going to the burner.


its probably your thermocouple an older one you'll see the pilot light/on newer models after it fires theres a flame sensor eye to distinguish that theres a flame and to continue to supply gas,if no flame is detected the gas valve is shut off for safety,the flame sensor eye could be defective or dirty also
