You posted under electric water heater.
Tank-type electric water heater is a simple appliance that I find fascinating.

1) I do not have specific manual that explains the parts, nor have I seen one.
However, following links give resourceful do-it-yourselfer full information how electric tank type water heater works, and how parts work together, and what the sequence of operation is, and how to troubleshoot and repair typical tank-type electric water heater.

2) If you are strictly looking for a pdf file that explains parts: Here's how I make pdf files to post on Internet:
You can copy content from links above, and paste into ordinary Office document.
Download CuteWriter for free, and then 'print' your Office document and select CuteWriter as the printer, and it will make a pdf manual.
Make manual as long or short as desired, and CuteWriter will space pages correctly.
Post your manual on your website for free, and then add a comment to this thread and include web location of your manual so others have free access to your work.

A.O. Smith promax electronic controller is not working

Question is not clear.
Do you want instructions to replace valve or want a service manual to test out the parts?
Open following link to help identify gas valve and download possible service manual that applies to that gas valve.

It is usually recommended that a professionally trained person replace the gas valve.
If you have the intellivent gas valve, then it usually has identifying marks on side of valve, or call AO Smith with the model and serial number from label on side of tank.
Turn off gas and disconnect gas line from side of valve.
The manifold tube and wires are disconnected.
The gas valve unscrews counterclockwise.
If you want more details as the project requires, add a comment with specifics and that sends email that I will answer.

I have a Power Star electric hot water heater, model AE 125, serial # 39-203967, model 45-55130. purchased 5 years ago at Home Depot for $850.00. I love the heater when it works. This is the second time I...

Bosch has 10-year limited warranty.
Probably the seller honors warranty first 90 days and Bosch afterward.

I think warranty is similar to car warranty where parts are covered, and they pay for parts to patch up the blown transmission but not give you a new car. But I hear of cases where the company just send a whole new Tankless unit and you install it yourself.

Contact Home Depot and present them with receipt.
Contact Bosch with the same information given in Fixya question.

Add a comment and say why unit broke down first time, and add what resolution was reached to help others with same question.

Upvote the help.

Before calling service technician, read manual for troubleshooting and yearly maintenance requirements.
Open following links to identify same-similar product and download manual.
Once you have product showing on page, click 'specs-docs' tab to see use-and-care manual.
Rheem site loads slow, and some manuals never load.
Typical power vent manual:

I believe the 21VP is older and Rheem does not show older manuals, but manuals are generally generic enough to help greatly. Year of manufacture show as second and third digit of serial number.

Lockout condition requires service technician and part replacement, or call Rheem and have them send part.
I found one link that talks about FV lockout that may or may not pertain to your issue:

I have the same problem with the same model. The problem has been identified by a friend of mine, correctly, I think.
This is a very dangerous problem involving Bosch's much touted safety feature, ironically enough. IT IS THE FLAME SENSOR IN THE GAS VALVE. The flame sensor is supposed to confirm that the pilot has lighted BEFORE the main gas line sends gas to the main burners, after which the pilot shuts off. The pilot light is not coming on, the sensor that shouldn't let gas fto the main burners is failing and the main gas is flowing and ignighting from the spark that is supposed to light only the pilot in a big explosion.
This is the 2nd unit of this model that has failed. I think Bosch should do a recall
