    After weeks of no hot water I finally broke down and figured this out. I took out the burner assembly and found that the TRD thermal release valve has got too hot and been tripped and now I can not find a replacement! What?? Am I calling it by the right name? I can’t find any info on YouTube or anywhere.

    Hello, I imagine that if we have the make, model and serial number of the heater, we can help you locate the right part/repair kit. 😎

    Hello, They want the serial number to locate parts, but if you go here: https://parts.rheem.com/OA_HTML/ibeCZzpHome.jsp?minisite=10165&respid=52926&grp=IBE_M_OTHER it will direct you to enter the numbers and things should start happening! 😎

    OK, thanks for the help.
    But I guess I’m out of luck. When I enter the serial number I get no results.. I mean 0!!

    I have tried that and the model number. Any other advice on where I can locate this part?

    I don’t think you are. This is a common problem that gets dealt with a lot. Best to call Rheem and tell them what you need.

    OK, I had to order the whole burner to get my part. No big deal, but I cleaned in there good and bypassed the fvir or TRD for now. NJ I know, I know.. but I need hot water and it’s been weeks and the tank is running fine. Just how dangerous is this?
