SOURCE: dripping from drain spout
If you are refering to the "Dripping coming from the preasure tempature valve,Then just turn off the valve where the water goes into the heater and open the P/T valve with a bucket below it draining only emought water to get below the level where it reaches. Normally the drain valves are plastic with a Male hosebib attached. Attach a garden hose to the rain and run it out to a point lower that the vaslve in order for gravity to drain the tank.The valve opens counter clock wise. If the valve is stuck or does not drain,and you have a foor drain handy,remove the whole valve and replace it with a boiler drain valve. If The tank is located below the drain level then you will have to either pump or carry the drain water to the higher level. Replace the P/T valve and reinstall the associated associated piping. I would use tefelon tape on the P/T pipe theads. You may have to open a hot water faucet in order for the air to replace the water in the tank ,in order to drain.

Flashing code 76 is lost communication between the remote and the burner control assembly CCA (circuit card assembly). The CCA is still under warranty if purchased within the last 3 yrs. Contact Rheem customer service and have your Mod. and S/N available....explain to the agent you are recieving - flashing code 76...they'll walk you through the process.

The most common reason a pilot light will not stay lit is a bad thermocouple. How old is the water heater? If the pilot light will light, but then go out when you release the safety button, that is a sure sign the thermocouple is bad. You can buy a replacement thermocouple at your local home improvement store. There is a small chance that the control valve has gone bad, but that is highly unlikely.

You don't need to find the same exact model to replace your water heater, any 50 gallon water heater will do unless you have a brand specification that you like to stick with.
