    Gas

    Were you getting 6.8 in when the valve was open, or only static?

    Sounds like the valve. I would try to send 24v right to it first. Could also be a low amp draw on the valve circuit, which might lead to a faulty control board.

    Did you

    call Rheem tech support? Sounds like a gas valve, is this a natural draft installation?

    I seem to recall

    hearing of manufacturing oil in the burners block the crossover. Try washing out the burners.

    Is this the set screw

    Adjustment that has a 2mm set screw inside a 3mm set screw? If it is you need to replace the valve and If you ever find the guy that dreamed that up, kick him in the butt.
