SOURCE: rheem tankless water heater wont lite

the system was not sized properly, you need to have a 3/4 gas line to the unit for the volume of gas it needs, the tankless water heaters need to have every bit of gas that is says, it sounds like who ever installed di not make sure you had enough gas comming in the house, you might have to either have a new meter installed or run the gas lind directly from the meter to the water heater and cap off the gas line thats there

Usually I recommend that people tear out their tankless water heater and sell it on ebay, and then install tank-type heater from different manufacturer:

Rheem pronto tankless water heater just barely warm model # 74pvn-1. This is in a house we are just purchasing. Also it looks like it may be attatched to another tank water heater , Help please


Before calling service technician, open following link for Rheem troubleshooting resources.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

Sometimes people attach tankless to tank-type heater to preheat incoming cold water.
Additional tanks are also used to store solar heat, and some installations have tank-type because tankless is unreliable. Service technician can sort out the function correctly.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tempering-tank.html

Owner should read tankless manual thoroughly, especially troubleshoot and maintenance sections. Tankless require yearly maintenance.

Since tankless are expensive to repair and replace, you might be able to fire up the tank-type water heater and provide hot water without much cost.
You can also install tank-type gas water heater yourself. Lowes sells 40 gallon for $317.00, and then you offer 10% less.
