Q:

the gas control valve reads lockout mode GPVH40100 Aosmith Water heater

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be happy to help with your water heater. Upon researching model GPVH40100; there are a couple different things that can cause the system to lockout. First is the gas supply is off or too low to operate. Second is the hot surface igniter is not positioned correctly. Third is the water heater is getting low voltage. Fourth is the electric polarity to the unit is incorrect.

Thank you for choosing Sears. We appreciate your business. Have a great day.

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your water heater and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number gpvh40100 and from your description I would suspect that the igniter is failing. If the igniter is not able to light the gases being released it will shut off. Here is a link that may help with additional troubleshooting. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page.
