I have a Rheem PowerVent 2 75 galoon lp gas heater model number 22VRP75P. The vent fan comes on, pilot clicks and ignites, burner does not. After three tries, the unit powers down, LED light flashes twice. After shutting it off at the fan, I have been able eto get it to restart. Is this a an ignition control module problem? If so, what is the part number.

SOURCE: burner & pilot went out, will not go without having a gap in the burner access door

Replace the pilot generator and everything will work again. It is a problem with it sensing the flame from the pilot and when the generator stops working it tends to knock everything out

Does the vent motor come on when you turn on a powervent hot water heater


`1) Copy following link to troubleshoot by type of gas control valve, blower motor links, pressure switch testing, and other professional resources:

http://www.thetankatwaterheaterrescue.com/forums/forum3/

2) Power-vent blower motor can go bad.
Plug motor directly into outlet, or turn on-off switch on, and see if motor works.
Check outlet for correct polarity, and for at least 80% of rated voltage.
Check vacuum switch. Blower creates vacuum, and the vacuum switch detect vacuum, and signals gas control valve that burner sequence can continue.
Gas control valve can also go bad. Wiring etc can go bad.

Richmond water heater goes into lockout condition, ignition failure and I have to turn the blower switch off then on to get the water heater to work. Its getting to be a everyday thing. Also would like to...


Start-point is to inspect and clean burner parts and combustion chamber, clean air intake, bleed air out of gas line, test gas pressure, test electronic gas control valve, check for venting issues.
As general rule, gas water heater manuals recommend professional service once a year that would cover most items listed above.
To see images, and for more reading and resources, look at your product manual and open following link:

Richmond/Rheem sells power vent blower assembly that cost about $300.
Your product manual shows part numbers.

Pilot will not stay light but will turn on and work properly


When having a problem with pilot and burner, the place to start is troubleshoot section in your manual.
Whirlpool is probably made by Craftmaster which I believe is a Rheem company, and Rheem makes a number of different models.
Some models have specific manuals and others have generic manuals.
Open Rheem water heater page and click on water that matches your water heater. On page that opens, click on tab that says 'specs' and then download manual.

If none of those water heaters look like yours, open following link to help identify company website and download manual. Craftmaster website does not have instruction manuals.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-manufacturers.html

All gas water heaters require periodic maintenance.
Some require yearly maintenance.
The burner parts require cleaning.

YOU MUST FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURERS CONVERSION INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY. If you do not your homeowners policy COULD be declaired void in the event of a claim. More importantly (IMHO) you could create a dangerous situation!

ECO failure. Replaced the gas control thermostat & vapor sensor


It sounds like your gas/air mixture needs to be adjusted. The flame should have just the slightest amount of white, at the very tip. The rest should be evenly blue. There is an air vent adjustment in the line to the burner, right after the gas input.

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.

Rheem/GE power vent water heater, pilot lites, but not the main


I would check to see if the switch on the blower pressure sensor is closing...When T-stat calls for flame, the circuit starts the blower, then the blower pressure sensor switch closes to allow the main gas valve to be powered.
