Question about Rheem Water Heaters
You need to replace the thermocouple. This is a common failure. It is the sensor that detects if a flame if present or not. When the thermocouple fails (it is a sensor) it shuts the gas supply off. Shouldn't be to hard of a job. The thermocouple is typically the little metal tube you see in the the pilot light when it is on.
