SOURCE: tankless water heater error code 11

I was having the same problem untill I reallized it was my venting system. Test the water heater with no vent on top. Disconnect the vent pipe from the water heater and try turning on the hot water. the water heater needs a special adapter to vent the direct vent water heater. One other thing you can check is the gas pressure in your home. You have to have between 7 and 8 WC (water Column) for the tankless water heaters. You can call your gas supplier to find out what you have.

SOURCE: Rheem Power Vent 2 water heater is flashing 4

The flashing light is a trouble sequence light. Find your manual to see what 4 flashes means. It's usually attached to the side of the water heater tank. Try a quick fix by unplugging the power vent and see what happens.

SOURCE: Error code 13 (air flow) tankless H20 Rheem

I have the RTG-53DVN, it too is an overly sensitive peice of ****. It worked for about 2 years, then started throwing errors. Had a plumber come out to look at it. He spent a lot of time on the phone on hold with Rheem, then they finally just overnighted a new circuit board. Well, that worked for about 3 weeks and now I have a brand new error code. What a peice of dung. Save yourself the frustration and do not buy a rheem.

Rheem model 41vrp40n flashes twice and stops working

Error code means that you have electronic gas control valve.

Copy following link to identify gas control valve, read error code meanings for each, and download service manual relevant to each gas control, but not specifically Rheem since rheem does not post service manuals.

The fact that water heater restarts, means that water heater is getting gas, getting sufficient air for combustion, thermister is ok, gas pressure is good, etc.
The fact that you unplug and replug water heater and it works, shows that you have power vent model.
Since water heater worked correctly before, 2 flashes with Rheem power vent model could mean that pressure switch has failed.

The computer code 14 comes up on the computer what does that mean.

Before calling Rheem or service technician, open following link for troubleshoot resources including error codes, Rheem chat, typical required maintenance manual, and possible product manual:

Error codes are start point for troubleshoot.
Error 14 is 'overheat wrap fault.'
This can include venting problem, failed heat exchanger, bad safety circuit, gas problem.
Rheem does not have a service manual posted for this specific problem.

Additional information: Tankless water heaters consume large amounts of gas during combustion. The combustion burns away hydrogen and the remaining poisonous byproduct is vented into the atmosphere at each home day and night.
Byproduct includes acidic water vapor that condenses along the vent pipe and drips back down vent.
Each tankless vent pipe has a drain line that directs acidic water into household drain.
If this drain line becomes clogged, or if vent was not installed correctly, then water drips down into heat exchanger and can erode or crack exchanger.
The typical maintenance manual above shows steps that can solve many tankless problems before they happen.

Rheem tankless water heater eco180-dvn has flash error code 13. Any solution? Called Rheem, only said venting problem, wouldn't provide the next step. Thank you.

Rheem wants customers to call trained service technician since error codes are start-place for troubleshooting, and problems can be combination of issues.
Risk of CO poisoning from improper vent, or clogged drain line causing damage to heat exchanger, and risk of homeowner working on complicated gas-burning appliances are reasons why Rheem instruction manuals recommend yearly maintenance by trained technician.
That maintenance would typically cover most common error code issues, and homeowner could gather tips and information from service tech.
