No hot water - the light shows red. It has had problem in the past months but cutting the power off and back on seemed to reboot the computer. This time the light stays red.


Before calling service technician:
Click following link, the click product, then scroll to page bottom to tab that offers technical literature, and download service manual and operation manual.
http://www.hotwater.com/water-heaters/residential/hybrid/

Read the required installation and maintenance protocol to see if air filter has been cleaned regularly, or the condenser coil might be dirty.
Required maintenance can be done by service tech recommended by AO Smith.
Contact AO Smith to find trained person, and next time, do not install expensive water heater since all savings disappear with service issues.

Installation: Electrical Requirements


13Mb product manual is a big download ... electrical info page 13:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/AO-Smith-Cyclone-gas-water-heater.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/AO-Smith-Cyclone-electrical-connection.pdf
Recommended both water heaters require dedicated single-phase 15 amp 120Volt line with correct polarity. This is 14 gauge wire and 15 amp breaker for each unit.
I would put both water heaters on surge protection and GFCI. Most water heaters are not protected from surge, and manual says line noise can affect operation of water heater.
Your local code would say if GFCI is required. Install GFCI breaker in main panel if required.
Install inline surge protector: Or add main breaker box protection.

Thank you for providing clear description of product:
Your water heater has intellivent gas control thermostat.
There are always problems with water heaters. It is a huge field.

1) Open following link for AO Smith service manuals.
I do not see service manual specifically for the GP series.

2) Open following link to identify gas valve and download typical service manual:
