      • Failed after 1 week
      • April 06, 2015

      Unit was dented after opening. Box looked fine. Installation was pretty straightforward. Gas valve failed after a week. Unit would attempt to light pilot, plenty of sparks, but no gas. Error code was 6-1. I was able to work around this temporarily by quickly shutting off the gas valve and re-opening it during the pilot ignition sequence. Had to do this every time to get the heater to start. I called Rheem tech support, and they were going to send a replacement gas valve under warranty, which should have arrived in two days. The valve did not arrive. Another call to tech support. Seems there is a high incidence rate of failure for the gas valve. They are out of stock for a least one month. Rheem is sending someone to replace entire water heater. FYI - There should be some way to manually override the flue damper and have a manual spark for lighting the pilot in the event of a power outage. Maybe a battery backup?
