Default A.O. Smith FPSH-40-270

Hi All,

Anyone have a PDF service manual for the A.O. Smith FPSH-40-270 gas water heater, checked with A.O. Smith and they would have to mail it to me and I just don't think the person I got had a clue.

Thanks,

Richie

It looks like you are waiting for the mail...

The on-line service manual only goes up to 261 series...

Hi All,

The water heater has a electronic gas controll valve and is giving a reading as follows:
Vacation, A and C lights stay lit.

Should be easy to figure out with a manual.

Thanks,

Richie

Nevermind. FPSH isn't a FVIR.

That has the Intelli vent gas control right? If so here is the manual for the valve. It has a troubleshooter with the error codes.

Sell them another brand!
I've been down that road with A.O. Smith, never again will I recommend anything from them! Installed a Rheem and my life is peaceful again.
