SOURCE: need reset code for richmond
I am poting this here hopefully it will help someone else. I have a richmond 40 gallon power vent water heater and it was not working. It was flashing 2-3 on the LED. I used this procedure and it started up..
you can reset the control by unplugging the blower during start up, leave unplugged for at least 5 seconds, plug back in and within 30 seconds cycle temp control from hot to low 6 times.

I answer questions for free.
My job is to provide resources that help you for free.
1) That being said, my research into FVIRs says you need a plumber when the FVIR trips.
2) The use-and-care manual for your model also says call a technician.
3) Buying replacement parts through a plumber is true for all water heaters except the Bradford White which has a resettable FVIR. BW is the only company with a re-settable FVIR, however the water heater market changes daily.
4) If the FVIR shorted and shut down the water heater, it probably saved a fire and maybe saved a life.
The following site says to call Rheem, who will tell you to call a local plumber.
The Rheem lineup of gas water heaters shows you have a 75 gallon tall heater:
The spec sheet for your model
The use and care manual has troubleshooting section > it says the combustion shut-off has to be inspected by qualified technician
