No hot water out of a rtg-74pvp-1 tankless water heater

When I turn on the water I get no hot water and the remote flashes c5 and c7 followed by flashing 12. I cleaned the filter, turned the remote off and back on again and I had hot water. What's going on with the water heater?

In order to reset the unit you will have to turn the temp all the way down then unplug the unit for 5 min,, remember it is a computer and it knows, after plugging in back in after the five min, reset the temp open up a fauset while doing this, that way it will be regestering the flow of water to set the temp by

I have Model PTG2-42PVN it shuts off and the remote flashes C7 and 76. What does this mean???


Could be the remote control. Disconnect remote and see if tankless works fine.

Probably bad PC board. Rheem will send new board and you can install yourself.

Bad PC board is kind of like the motherboard on your computer, so expect same level of performance after replacing motherboard ... which usually means the computer's days are numbered before another major problem.

C4 76 error code on richland waterheater


Richland tankless is made by Rheem.
C7-76 is communication fault with remote.
Turn off power at remote and wait 5 minutes, turn power back on at remote, and see if problem clears.
If problem continues, read below:

Before calling service technician, open following links for troubleshoot resources including error codes, Rheem chat, typical maintenance manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-error-code-C7-76.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

Tankless water heater, more than any other type of heater, need to be maintained.
Maintaining tankless will probably not affect C7 76 fault code, but can prevent many other common error codes.

Thermostat model UMC 117 keeps coding C7 why?


Generally, C7 is communication problem with remote
Error codes are considered start point for troubleshoot.
Causes can be: Bad remote, bad wire to remote, loose wire connection at remote, loose wire connection at unit, bad PC board.
In no particular order:
Check wire connections.
Disconnect remote and let water heater control temperature at default 120 degrees F, and if no further problem develops, then that might eliminate PC board as source of problem.
Replace wire to remote.
Replace remote.
Call service technician to diagnose problem.
Contact Rheem about PC board and other options.

We are getting multiple codes. Can someone help us. Last year we got cod c2 11 which we found out we just have to clean the probes in the unit. So we did that yesterday again and everything worked great,...


Rheem, Richmond, Ruud, and Paloma are all the same manufacturer. After about 9 months, my tankless RTG-74PVN started giving me error code 11 and cold water!. I fixed it by cleaning the burner, as shown in this video:

Remote is flashing C8 and 76, alternating. I turn the unit off, then back on, and I get hot water for about 10 seconds, then it goes cold and the same error message occurs. Unit is Rheem Main Remote...


Before calling service technician, open following links for Rheem tankless resources including error codes and Rheem chat.
Disconnect wires from remote to see if system stabilizes. Unit will heat to default temperature without remote.

Error codes are considered start-point for troubleshooting.
C8 76 can mean PC board failure.
76 can mean communication failure with remote control
