How Do I restart the rheem 81v30d

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-light-gas-water-heater.html

Rheem does not post service manuals.
One reason is that water heaters have changed rapidly last few years, and same model might have different features because Rheem experiments to see which products work after they are sold.

Calls to Rheem for DIY help are largely useless since they want you to call local installer or technician... who will sell you a new heater for more money.
Rheem wants to end DIY repairs since doing it yourself saves you money... which means Rheem, and Rheem-loyal service companies make less money.

What is the part # for a Rheem 308 71 model heating element needed?


Any generic element will work.
Match wattage with current element.

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html#parts

Rheem wants folks to buy parts from them... so Rheem tries to convince people that Rheem electric water heaters require special parts.
This is not true... ordinary generic parts will function fine on Rheem.

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.

Before calling service technician, read manual for troubleshooting and yearly maintenance requirements.
Open following links to identify same-similar product and download manual.
Once you have product showing on page, click 'specs-docs' tab to see use-and-care manual.
http://www.rheem.com/product.aspx?id=C24E3F52-A6A4-4BC7-AF5B-0DF23A7A0263

http://globalimageserver.com/fetchDocument.aspx?id=c0471d58-5e59-4be6-96f7-68361b8fb515
Rheem site loads slow, and some manuals never load.
Typical power vent manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-power-vent-manual.pdf

I believe the 21VP is older and Rheem does not show older manuals, but manuals are generally generic enough to help greatly. Year of manufacture show as second and third digit of serial number.

Lockout condition requires service technician and part replacement, or call Rheem and have them send part.
I found one link that talks about FV lockout that may or may not pertain to your issue:
