MODEL: Rheem Fury 6yr 22V30F MANUFACTURE DATE: 31 May 2012
I replaced the Thermocouple, and made sure all connections were good, and secure, replaced the Gasket for the inner panel. This is a Natural Gas unit, and the wall furnace that is on the same line is working fine. Furnace is less than 8 feet of line from the Water Heater. Gas supply good.
I can light the pilot, and it stays on. As long as I do not turn the unit to the "ON" position, the pilot will stay on. As soon as the unit goes to on, and the primary gas flow starts, it will all light for a few seconds, then it is like it burns itself out. Almost like there is too much gas pressure, but that should not be the case as it has been working like a champ since I moved in here.
Any advice would be appreciated.
