There should be settings on the thermostats.  Should be a control panel towards the bottom.  It will have a little lever or knob.  It will also have 12345 or A B C or something similar.  Read the manual to find out what the corresponding numbers or letters are in temperature range.

    125 is what I have mine set at.  It is pretty hot.  But depends how much pip you have to go through and how insulated your walls are.  I would check the temperature and wash your hands to see if it is to hot for you or not.

Raise temp above 120

Raising temperature above 120 degrees requires service call.
Or change dip switch settings and risk voiding warranty and causing service call expense.

Earliest versions of Rheem tankless 2006-8 let you set temperature up to 140 degrees F using remote.
However the hotter setting caused error codes because the burner cannot keep up with both high temperature and large volume of hot water rushing through pipe. Especially in winter with cooler incoming water that must be heated more to reach temperature set point.
The burner simply cannot keep up.
So Rheem changed maximum temperature at remote control to tepid 120 degrees, which is not hot enough for folks wanting hot shower, or folks filling whirlpool tub because water in tub cools before tub fills.

Water temp stays at 160 degrees

Specific type of water heater does not show on web search.
I am guessing you have tank-type electric water heater.
Did you replace both thermostats and test elements?
Element could be cracked, thermostats can stick open, upper thermostat wired incorrectly, wire shorted.
We know that electric power to water heater is good, and circuit breaker is good.
Why is eco is not tripping? Why is TP valve is not leaking?
