I have a Rheem 41VRP50N water heater, a couple of months ago

Customer Question

I have a Rheem 41VRP50N water heater, a couple of months ago one of the water connection fittings leaked onto the inside of the tank insulation and onto the electric pilot ignition, I fixed the leak, let it dry, and fired it back up, and its been fine until recently, now it fires back up, heats the water fine, but goes out again and I have to restart, what do you think happened?
JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?
Customer: this is a water heater
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of you situation.

Can you give me a picture of the gas control valve? You can post a pic here by clicking on ADD FILES next to the SEND button. When you have to reset the unit what are you getting for an LED flash sequence?
