Just installed a Rheem RTG-95DVLN. Tried turning it on but all im getting is the # 82 flashing & beeping incessantly! Anybody know why or have any suggestions? Im completely stumped...


According to Rheem trouble shooting, at the end of page 61, error code 82:
Error Code 82
Explanation: Gas Type Control Data Failure; Printed Circuit Board data failure. The PCB has not
been programmed, lost its programming or has failed.
5. If the unit does not operate on initial installation or after replacement of the PCB, then the
circuit board requires programming with the fuel type and altitude chip.

Error Code 90 Solution


Over time after about 5 to 6 years many Noritz heaters tend to display error code 90 and stop working. The unit has to be shut off and back on for it to work again for a short time. Error code 90 is indication of abnormal combustion and can have a few causes, including blockage in the exhaust vent. However the problems lies mostly with the combustion fan. that is the fan that you hear when the unit is running. It is unable to deliver enough air to normal combustion.
Replace the fan and while doing it clean the air pathway with compressed air. In addition remove the ignition and heat senors (all in one assembly, in the middle of the unit) and sand them very slightly with very fine sandpaper (400 or higher) to remove build up on them.
While the fan is being ordered you can at your own risk operate the unit with the cover slightly open (about 2 in.) at the bottom and the unit will run without code 90. It is highly recommended to hire a trained technician for the above work as gas appliances pose a significant danger to human life and property if not installed or maintained properly.

Rinnai R85 starts to warm then stops and blinks 61??


I went to the Rinnai website and this is what I found for error code 61.
Error Code 61 Problem: Fan failure
Solution: Measure the resistance on the fan motor, check the damaged or loose wiring and connections. Make sure that the fan spins freely.
Sounds like either your fan is broken or something is keeping it from spinning freely.
Hope this helps.

Add a comment and describe product in detail.
If tankless computer is older than 5 years, then replaced with tank-type heater for longer live and fewer problems.

On A.O. Smith water heater model BTH 199 100 where is the heat sensor rod located ?


Parts list:
http://www.hotwater.com/lit/partslists/197728-004.pdf
Flame rod, flame sensor sits next to igniter inside combustion chamber. This can be cleaned with sandpaper. Do not touch with fingers. Purpose of flame rod is to detect whether ignition has caused actual, sustainable fire inside the combustion chamber.
If sensor is bad, or no ignition is detected after 2-3 attempts, then 'no ignition' error is given.
Bad gas control valve, bad-or-dirty flame rod-sensor, low gas pressure, misaligned rod, dirty combustion parts, etc

Service handbook:
http://www.hotwater.com/lit/training/316586.pdf
High gas pressure spikes can daMAGE gas control valve p7

Product manual:
http://www.hotwater.com/lit/im/com_gas/197727.pdf
Word-search for 'failure'
Low gas pressure. p14 and p54
1-3 trials before declaring 'ignition failure. p48
bad flame sensor (clean with sandpaper) #10 p58
unit must be grounded (check outlet with circuit analyzer) #12 p58
Sequence flow chart p59
Rough starts = ignition failure p60

Rheem tankless water heater error code 11


Error 11 is ignition failure, or insufficient gas, or defective sensor, dirty combustion parts.
Do the yearly required maintenance such as cleaning the combustion parts, and error code will probably be solved.
Problem is Rheem does not post service manuals for people to learn how to service their equipment without calling service tech.
Copy following link for Rheem troubleshoot resources
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

The cost of yearly maintenance will easily eat away the expected yearly savings of $100 for typical family of 4.

I'm working on a n-0931m noritz and i have a 61 code flash and water leak out the blower housing i assume the heat exchanger is bad. is a heat exchanger difficult to replace


61 code is a fan motor abnormality. It typically indicates the fan is damaged and needs to be replaced. It can be caused by water leaking onto it from the heat exchanger.

The heat exchanger isn't difficult to replace, but it is confusing if it's your first time doing it. I'd recommend calling Noritz for assitance.
