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.

We purchased this part for our gas water heater. It worked great for a week and then we started having the same problem again. We ended up having to buy a new tank at a different store.
