My Paloma 42PVN shuts down and shows code IL. The manual says it's Lime deposits. How do I remove these deposits. The unit has been running fine for over 1 year but now it only runs intermittently and...


You need a 5 gallon bucket and a small sump pump that connects to a garden hose. The hose connects to the inlet of the water heater and and then run a second hose from the hot water outlet into the bucket. Pour in about a gallon of white distilled vinegar. Turn the pump on and let the vinegar run through the heater for 15 minutes. Reverse the hoses and run another 15 minutes. reconnect the heater and test the water flow. You may need to repeat these steps several times to remove enough debris and buildup.
Installing a water softener treatment system will prevent the buildup from occurring so fast, if ever again.

I also a Paloma tankless water heater that is 2 years old. I am now getting an error code C7 76 also. Is this something I can take care of, or should I call a plumber to address?


Remove power source from the unit. If remote control is installed; remove cover and lift the control wires on the terminal...can be accomplished from either end.

Restore power and see if unit functions normally.

Contact Paloma/Rheem customer (800-432-8373) support and notify them IF you are getting a code "76" error. Rheem has recently extended the warranty on the "Burner Control Assm."; which is your problem. The C4-C8 portion of the error code, is where the unit stops the ignition process...burner fails to light, or gives you intermittent hot water. In either case, contact customer support .

If this helps, please indicate so.

Paloma tank less water heater flashes code C4 13 and we have no hot water?how to fix it?


I had the same problem with my Paloma a year and a half after installation...contacted Rheem customer service (800-432-8373) and they recommened a local installer in my area. The technican diagnosed the problem as the "flow control valve"; he managed to get Rheem/Paloma to cover the part under warranty...I only had to shell out the money for the install.

Tankless water heater (Paloma) Has C2 11 error


I had this problem with the C2 11 error code. My unit is 1.5 years old. I called Paloma and they emailed me an 11 page document to clean the burners. I am not an HVAC but I got the feeling that's who the instructions were for. Very difficult but you can do it if you're handy. You basically take apart 1/2 the unit, be carfull not to lose any screws and label all the little brackets that come off. It took me 2-3 hours to get to the burners. I used a can of air (for keyboards-electronics) to blow on the burners and clear any build up. After putting it back together (carefull to make sure the 3 gas tubes make a seal when re-installed) the unit works. I did this today so I'm not sure the unit will still work in a week/month. I am dreading having to do this every year to keep the unit running.

76 C8 error display on control board


Call Paloma and they will send you a new circuit board. We had the same problem. Our heater is a little over 2 years old. They said the error "76" is a circuit board issue where the tank is not communicating properly with the remote. The other solution they told us was to disconnect the remote and just let the heater run on the default.
