I have a Reddy heater 30-55,000 btu.. When lighting it I press in the initer for the recomended time but after I release it the flame goes out.. Can you tell me why?.

It seems as if you are not holding the igniter long enough after it fires, have you tried holding the igniter down for a few seconds more to allow the safety cut out to warm up, (Similar to the gas heaters, when ignited keep the flame going for the thermal coupling to heat up), If you do this and it still goes out the safety valve is faulty, but try holding it in longer before messing about with the coupling.

Not sure how to get the water heated. I've turned on the enterior switch and the switch on the back of the unit and tried to light the pilot but don't here any gas coming through at all.

OK this systems has a safety system and it will not let gas pass threw without the pilot light working correctly. first off near the pilot light there is a thermal coupling. this sends a signal to the main valve to open up. this thermal coupling need to get to a set temp. (hot) this is probably why you don't hear the gas. check if there is a manual bypass valve for maintenance. check if you can light the pilot rite away if you power the system on. it also has a time delay so the pilot won't give gas out if not fired on. sometimes there is a manual nozzle you have to press and hold till the gas pilot warms up the thermal coupling. hope i help some. thank you.

My atwood 6 gal lp water heater starts fine then shuts itself off after about 1 minute. Sounds like a thermostate issue but where is that located on the electric model? Thanks. Ryan

Look to left of burner, below pressure relief valve, behind foam cover. Letters should be THERM on one and ECO on the other. Peel foam back and you'll see a little disc, with 2 male spade connectors. Don't mix up the one marked THERM, with ECO, they are different temperature settings. You might want to remove the thermal cut-out in the plastic tube and connect the wires direct (your basically going to by-pass it) and see if that cures it first. Just disconnect one end from Therm, and other from red wire, and put red wire (female spade) on male terminal at therm. I've seen them cause similar symptoms. If that cures it, buy a new thermal cut-off and install it as soon as you can, as it's a safety item in case of flame-up from burner, it shuts of power to gas valve etc, to eliminate fire.

I have a Rheem Power Vent propane water heater model3 21VP4OE-1P that is acting up. The pilot lights and then the burner lights, but goes off after 5 - 10 seconds. It cycles like this 2 or 3 times, then...

check the thermal coupling for the pilot light. if it goes out it will shut down gas supply, its a safety feature to put out pilot light if the thermal coupling is bad. to prevent gas from leaking and causeing a fire. check coupling.

I have atwood GC6aa-9e, will not fire the ignition tries 3 sets

Have you tried temporarily removing the thermal cut-out from the circuit to see if ignites then? It's the little resistor looking thing inside the plastic sleeve/cover that runs to thermostat. Disconnect it from the thermostat terminal, and from wire that is on the other end, and you should be left with a female spade connector at end of that wire. Connect that directly to thermostat terminal where the other part was connected, and try it. If it works, the thermal cut out is no good and needs to be replaced for safety reasons, in case of flame out of control, it blows and shuts gas valve off.

Check vacuum line from #6 intake runner (port side rear cylinder) to the fuel petcock valve. The valve is vacuum operated for safety. It cuts off fuel to the carbs when the engine is shutdown. Hose could be cracked or diaphram in valve is cracked. Easy to inspect the valve.
