Question about Rheem Tankless Water Heater Main Remote Control
Have to shut unit off, unplug wait 5 minutes then plug back in turn unit on and it will work for a while before it hiccups again and no hot water...what is problem?
1) Copy following link for Rheem tankless troubleshoot, including ecosense.
2) Probably needs new circuit board.
3) Product manual usually give list of required yearly maintenance.
Perform the maintenance, just like changing oil on car, and then service technician is familiar with your water heater and can count on your money each year around Christmas.
4) For independence, reliability, cost, and convenience, don't buy tankless water heater, or any other expensive/complicated water heater that requires yearly maintenance, and generally cannot be repaired by homeowner.

Remove power source from the unit. If remote control is installed; remove cover and lift the control wires on the terminal...can be accomplished from either end.
Restore power and see if unit functions normally.
Contact Paloma/Rheem customer (800-432-8373) support and notify them IF you are getting a code "76" error. Rheem has recently extended the warranty on the "Burner Control Assm."; which is your problem. The C4-C8 portion of the error code, is where the unit stops the ignition process...burner fails to light, or gives you intermittent hot water. In either case, contact customer support.
If this helps, please indicate so.

According to the symtoms...sounds like you have a problem with the flow control valve. If less than 3 yrs old, contact Rheem Customer Support at (800-432-8373) and they can an authorized tech in your area to service the unit.
If the unit is out of warranty, I reccommend you still call customer support to find a local technician. Unless you're highly technical/mechanical, this is not a problem you should attempt yourself.
