This sounds like the combustion shut off device has tripped. If the unit is less than 6 years old this could be a warranty issue. Replacing the device is best left to a pro. If the unit is less than 6 years old you can call Rheem at 1-***-***-**** and ask them how to proceed.

I assume this is the the gas valve on front of unit?
Plumber: Rick, Construction Supervisor replied 3 years ago
No it's a small part inside the combustion chamber. Some models incorporate it into the pilot assembly on others it's located under the main burner.
