          This is the thermopile Assembly to purchase if your current Home Depot 6, 9 or 12 year Rheem gas ...
          This is the thermopile Assembly to purchase if your current Home Depot 6, 9 or 12 year Rheem gas hot water heater refuses to maintain it's "lit" pilot flame. We just recently installed a replacement Home Depot 9-yr warrantied Rheem 50 gallon hot water tank and what we thought was a flawless install was not correct in that the pilot light refused to stay lit....pilot light would extinguish itself every 6 hours or so requiring a person to relight the pilot a total of 4 times over a 24 hour period. I escalated this problem to Rheem at their toll free number (800-432-8373) and this thermopile assembly was overnighted to me via FEDEX from Rheem. Rheem would either dispatch a technician to install this part however having no reliable hot water for almost a week I installed this part myself and it's been almost 12 hours with a consistant reliable pilot light thereby giving us hot water to shower and clean. This part is a Protech branded OEM assembly with p/n SP20824 which will work with all the current natural gas powered Rheem water heaters currently being sold at your local Home Depots. If you are going to replace this item yourself be sure and use open flare nut wrenches to remove the fittings off the actual gas valve otherwise you risk "rounding off" the brass nuts if you aggressively overtighten the three fittings back onto the gas valve.

          Product was fine. Will not buy Rheem from Home Depot again. They have their own exclusive part numbers meaning you cannot go to any other Rheem dealer and get parts. You have to get them through Home Depot which means there will always be a week delay waiting on parts as the stores do not carry anything.

          This was the wrong part. The info given is pathetically poor. From everything that I COULD find, this was supposed to fit my model water heater, it does not at all, not even close. Also, troubleshooting info everywhere on the internet is wrong as well. Everywhere, everything I could find about the problem I had was wrong, this part had nothing to do with the issue. Again, info (especially from Rheem) is severly lacking. 3rd Rheem water heater, 4th problem in 12 years. This one was manufactured in March '22, bought in April, started failing in July. Home Depot NO HELP.

          The part works good as expected, easy repair. But you can only buy this part from home Depot even though it is a reem water heater. (Proprietary to home Depot) then had to wait because they had to order it from reem on the other side of the country.
