Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

This error requires replacing the gas control valve. Since the unit is only 1 1/2 years old it should be in warranty and yo should be able to get a replacement gas valve under the warranty. Contact the manufacturer to make a warranty claim. Honeyweel does not make water heaters. They only make the gas valve. There may be an 800 number on the tank to call.
