SOURCE: rheem tankless water heater gives error code, flashes 80. Also what do I use to seal the exterior of the vent? Should the vent outside smell like gas?

check to make sure that your flue pipes are together if the have not been put together properly it will not start, it has to pull in cold air while exhaust is forced out,, if it isn't right it will pul exahust thru the cold air intake and shut sown or not start at all,, you might want to call who ever installed it,they are supposed to warraty it for 1 year on labor at a min, to be able to install them thru the company,, rheem,, they are supposed to be quilaifeid and have a card that states they took the class to have the knowledge to do so.

SOURCE: ECO failure. Replaced the gas control thermostat & vapor sensor

It sounds like your gas/air mixture needs to be adjusted. The flame should have just the slightest amount of white, at the very tip. The rest should be evenly blue. There is an air vent adjustment in the line to the burner, right after the gas input.

SOURCE: Rheem Eco-180dvn. Error code 12

actually, does it give you a big rumble? if it does, then your problem is that the meter's btu's are not high enough and there's too litle gas getting to the heater so it's blowing itself out, basically. you'll need to call your gas provider and ask for them to bring in a higher btu meter. around 220,000 btu meter is best, so your furnace and gas stove(if you have one) dont take to much gas themselves, meaning dont get a 180,000 btu meter, because it would only be able to supply the heater.

SOURCE: Error code 13, replace

Before calling service technician, open following link for troubleshoot resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html

The same error code and problem on one person's tankless unit can have different solution than another tankless unit.
This is because tankless require perfect operation of parts and sensors while being affected by incomming water and gas issues, and venting, plus plumbing factors.
Replacing one part is not always the fix, since that part interrelates with so many other parts, each affected by the operation of the other, and operation of the chip and integrity of wiring and wiring connections.

Read manual for yearly maintenance requirements, and calculate those costs when figuring anticipated $1-8 monthly energy savings from owning tankless.
Check that your region has reasonably-priced, qualified service technician for your brand before buying tankless. And check part list and cost of parts before buying any water heater because these factors weigh-in after a few years of operation.

Repair most tankless problems yourself, same day, any brand, for around $330.

What does ECO failure mean on my hot water heater?


I'm guessing about model. I Goggled Eco failure. For reheme this site and discussion may help. http://terrylove.com/forums/index.php?threads/ge-rheem-power-vent-eco-failure-code-gg50s06rvj.43646/
but since it's gas, and an expensive unit I'd call the installer or his service.

Rheem tankless water heater error code 11


Error 11 is ignition failure, or insufficient gas, or defective sensor, dirty combustion parts.
Do the yearly required maintenance such as cleaning the combustion parts, and error code will probably be solved.
Problem is Rheem does not post service manuals for people to learn how to service their equipment without calling service tech.
Copy following link for Rheem troubleshoot resources
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

The cost of yearly maintenance will easily eat away the expected yearly savings of $100 for typical family of 4.

1) Before calling service technician who can test parts, open following link for Rheem resources including error codes, Rheem chat and phone number, possible manual:
If local technician cannot solve problem, Rheem can probably recommend a person.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

2) Error codes are start-point for troubleshooting.

3) Multiple error codes can indicate PC board failure.

4) Error code C7-76 is communication error with remote, and can include bad remote, bad wire to remote, loose wire, or bad PC board.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-error-code-C7-76.pdf

5) Error C4-13 can include part failure, vent problem, oxygen depletion, and can also include PC board failure.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Error-code-13.pdf

6) Tankless routine maintenance manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Tankless-maintenance.pdf

I am getting a C2 11 code on my eco sense tankless water heater. There is also a flashing 24, any ideas? Thanks


Multiple error codes can mean PC board failure.
C2 11 is no ignition.
Error 24 is malfunction of operational switch: "press max or mim button on PC board, or replace PC board." On some models, max and mim button can be located just above dip switches, and rotates with screwdriver. See diagram in manual.

RHEEM 50 GALLON WATER HEATER,4 BLINKS THEN 2 BLINKS ,ECO FAILURE,UNPLUGGED HEATER STARTS UP AGAIN THEN FAILURE OCCURS AGAIN.


That is a power vent failure code.
Rheem is aware of this problem and are changing systems as we speak. Call your Rheem dealer and demand the updated system.
