We own 2 GE Power Vent 50 gal tanks, one of them keeps shutting off with the fault code 2-1, which is dangerous vapours present or something similar. The one right next to it is fine. Could the sensor be faulty? Can I reset this myself so I don't have to go thru GE warranty line once again. This is the third time in 6 months.

Something is wrong to cause this problem to reoccur. It's somewhat like a circuit breaker than continues to trip. It's not a normal condition, so I'd advise having the heater professionally checked and possibly replaced.

do they actually have someone in your area that will service that unit???? Or are you completely on your own
like with Whirlpool??

Depending on its age you may need a FVS upgrade...
