|Wow - I appreciate the time you must have spent Bobice. Unfortunately, this does not resemble my water heater. The Rheem 21VP50 is a power vented model with a hot surface igniter (no pilot flame that burns constantly). I think the problem is either the controller (a Robert Shaw), the Gas valve, or some sort of obstruction in the vent. Really, I'd like some help in ruling out the first two to see if I need to disassemble the piping, which would be a huge task.
Any help anyone could provide would be much appreciated.
