With heating and air conditioning many times there are multiple problems, one causing the other. If you listen closely to the unit you should be able to ascertain whether the compressor is on or not. It has a distinctively lower toned motor than the fan. If it is working you need to feel the larger of the two copper pipes if possible. The optimum condition of this pipe after running for a couple minutes is it should be cold and sweaty. If it is just a little cool or warm it may well be low on refrigerant. In that case you need to call an EPA certified Tech. If they tell you that it has a leak, insist that they repair it, not just fill it. There are dozens of different problems that happen to units. I just touched on a couple of them, that's why Techs charge $50-$80 an hour. Once you find a good Technician keep his number, sometimes were hard to find. Good luck

C2 11 code


Before calling service technician, open following link for Rheem error codes and troubleshooting resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

Error code C2 11 is 'no ignition'
Ensure you have gas to the appliance.
Ensure gas type and pressure are correct.
Bleed all air from gas lines.
Ensure gas line, meter, and regulator are sized properly.
Ensure appliance is properly grounded.
Check gas solenoid valves for open or short circuits.
Ensure igniter is operational.
Check igniter wiring harness for damage.

There is no service bulletin covering how to perform these actions.
Rheem will ask that you call qualified service technician, who can give you tips and tricks for keeping the unit working, including opportunity for yearly service that will eliminate the expected $1-8 monthly savings from owning tankless.
Read manual for yearly maintenance needed to keep unit working at prime efficiency.

If still no heat, check your heating sensor for closed circuit by anOHMs metre.It it's with RV, check power to RV.If it's with heatingelement check power to element.

Unit comes on and shut off correctly but dosen't heat and cool home equally. Blows cold air in winter and doesn't cool home properly in summer.

Rheem gas furnace blower unit not working properly


look at circuit board and follow wires that come from fan motor, if this is a standard motor black is high and it will be going to a prong that says cool, red is low and it will go to heat, you will have a yellow and a blue that are "parked" remove red park it were the blue is and put blue on heat, if this is a variable speed motor you will have to set dip switches via your equipment manual

Replace Contactor Relay on Rheem Air Condenser


I have a Rheem heat pump/airconditioner, Mod # RPFA-036JAS, that I have had problems with for at least 5 years and have paid over $1,000 in parts and service calls. I can vever recreate the problem when a tech is here. It usually happens in the middle of the night. I hear a Click, ckick, click sound, through the unit and it sounds like it is comming out of my air handler, but the outside unit also clicks at the contactor and the condensor cooling fan moter will start and stop about every half secongd or second. Both contactors have been replaced, the small one twice, one capaciter
has been replaced. I allow the unit too cool down and its alright for a few hours. That is difficult when the outside temp is below zero. HELP PLEASE!
