I have a Richmond tankless water heater and it has L1 error code...can somebody help me with this?


Might be able to help. Except L1 does not show on any error code file.
Copy following link for Rheem Richmond Ecosense etc computer water heater troubleshoot resources
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html
Are you sure the error is not IL? Delime tankless.
Or UL flashes and indicates reset.
Or CL flashes and indicates fault history is cleared.
Or error 11 combustion failure? Call for service.
Or P1? Low water pressure, clean water filter check for leaks and crossover caused by bad single-handled faucet cartridge.
I recommend calling Rheem to find local technician who is qualified to work on tankless computers. Tankless are not ordinary water heaters, and they require continual maintenance to avoid common error codes, especially as unit gets 2-3 years old, after warranty has expired.
The required maintenance and expense of repairs, and general fact that people cannot make their own repairs, make tankless computers a bad choice for heating water.
If unit is 4-5 years old, it might be best to install tank-type heater for $385 from Lowes and cut losses.

Richmond powervent model 6G40PV-40F Lockout 4-2 blink. What's wrong. What do I replace to fix?


1) Rheem-Richmond does not post service manuals:
Copy following link to identify service manual by type of gas control valve:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

2) For lockout, the air intake might be clogged or combustion parts dirty, causing overheating which will break TRD glass vial. Gas control may need to be replaced. Reset gas control by rotating knob to lowest temp for at least 6 seconds.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html

3) Call Rheem or local service tech.

Richmond power vent 2 flashes code 4-4


Sounds like a pressure switch or simular sensing device that is not proving positive, thus a possible vent blockage or defective sensing device.
