Questions & Answers

Does this model XG40S12DM40U0 use the electronic ignition or does it have a standing pilot light...

Does this model XG40S12DM40U0 use the electronic ignition or does it have a standing pilot light? I seeing conflicting info. The User Manual uses the word 'pilot' somewhat ambiguously but the Home Depot description indicates electronic ignition. Which is it?
Asked by: Tim
I believe it does not have a pilot light as I did not see one at the bottom. There is an electronics ignition device (white box) in the front that also adjusts temperature. I do know the unit even though is a gas unit does need 120VAC outlet to power the damper at the top which opens and closes electrically. The unit comes with a cord about 15 ft long.

Asked by: oli
You need to have 110 volt receptacle within reach of the attached transformer that will reduce the power from 110 volts to 24 volts.

WHAT HAPPEN IF THE POWER GOES OFF, DOES THE HOT WATER HEATER STILL WORK?

Asked by: MILO
No, this unit has to have 120 volt to power the transformer for the control unit and the power draft valve... This Power draft valve opens and closes the air vent going out the exhaust/ flue pipe to hold in more heat. This valve opens fully before there is even ignition of the tank flame. There is no manual lighting with a match for this unit, all electronic!

Had to call tech support and get out a multi-meter to take readings for the tech. Eventually got it working. Plug not put into its socket correctly. Only time will tell if the efficiency is worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit I bought this unit almost two months ago and so far it has bin the best unit from all I have had. It was installed by licensed service without any issues and glitches. As per instruction booklet there is an option to control this unit from your smartphone, however that would require to purchase additional control device.

It took us about one hour and a half from start to finish. I have had it for almost two months now, and so far we are very pleased with the unit. I purchased this water heater because of the longer warranty and of course the Star Energy efficiency. This heater should save us a couple of hundred each year. It also has a nice feature if we decide to buy and install the remote temperature controller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! This hot water tank works great, so much better than our 17-year-old one. Plenty of capacity for two people showering at the same time. Best of all, you can buy a Wi-Fi for this and connect it to your smart home. It works with Nest so that when you're not home, it goes into Eco mode to save energy. Very cool!

This water heater exceeded our expectations, we used it to replace a 21 old gas pilot water heater that worked VERY good and also exceeded its life expectancy and did not die until we turned it off. But what we like about this new Rheem is the AUTOMATIC way to turn itself without a pilot!!!
