Tip

Get hot water from your Rheem tankless during a code 76 error


This doesn't always work, but on the Rheem tankless Gas/Propane water heater, if you're experiencing a code 76 error; disconnect the remote control unit (either from the water heater or the remote) by lifting the wires for the remote connection. Typically you'll get a C1-C8 error code, followed by a code 76; if you're getting a straight code 76 and nothing else, this procedure probably won't work.
Code 76 is a total power supply failure on the printed circuit board (PCB) assembly, which is the communication/power supply for the remote control unit. But, if you're getting a supplemental code (C1-C8) this procedure will most likely supply you with hot water until the replacement PCB arrives.

Rtg74pvn2 rheem tankless water heater gas problem


1) You want the truth: Forget tankless.
There are many tankless water heaters with insoluble problems.
And endless problems.
Rheem knows it.

2) Do you really expect your home computer to work flawless after replacing motherboard?
Get your money back from Rheem, or get a full replacement.

3) OR fix water heater yourself today: Install tank-type gas water heater for $350 from local box store.
FYI: Do not buy Rheem, Richmond, Ruud, GE as these units from Rheem have problems that require service technicians.
Instead buy Whirlpool, American, State, Craftmaster, Reliance, Kenmore, as these units from AO Smith have fewer problems and can be repaired by homeowner using simple part replacement.

Gas will not ignite there is gas to the unit and there is nothingon the remote to say that something is wrong . the gas will not ighnite


You posted under Rheem tankless water heater.
Before calling service technician, open following link for Rheem troubleshooting resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

The lack of error code indicates that problem could be plumbing-related.
Read the pdf files: 'no error code' and 'crossover' for one possible group of causes.

The PC board might also be bad.
Remember error codes are just a starting point for troubleshooting water heater.
The same with no error code.
Same problem on one tankless can have different cause and solution than another unit.

If repairs cost more than $330, you can buy and install tank-type gas water heater yourself same day.

When taking a shower the hot water turns off. When I go to the tankless water heater it says C4 76. What does this mean?


Before calling service technician, open following link for Rheem troubleshoot resources including error codes and typical manuals.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html
C7 76 is problem with remote control. Following link might help.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-error-code-C7-76.pdf

Read manual cover-to-cover to make sure your tankless water heater receives yearly maintenance required for unit to continue working.
Tankless are maintenance heavy which can quickly eliminate any promised energy savings unless you de-lime and troubleshoot and read tips-and-tricks others have written and glean information from service technician who visits your house. Mostly glean how much tankless repairs and parts cost vrs buying whole new tank-type gas water heater at local box store, since all costs are energy.

CODE C 4776 COMES ON DISPLAY AND UNIT SHUTS DOWN HOW DO I FIX THIS PROBLEM


Check the gas inlet pressure as I am guessing this is an LP unit. Most of these problems come from a poor installation. Gas pipe too small, gas pressure too low, not enough combustion air. The other cause of error codes is a unit plugged into an extension cord. Also, if the flue is not installed properly, condensation can come back and damage the unit.

Rheem tankless water heater wont lite


the system was not sized properly, you need to have a 3/4 gas line to the unit for the volume of gas it needs, the tankless water heaters need to have every bit of gas that is says, it sounds like who ever installed di not make sure you had enough gas comming in the house, you might have to either have a new meter installed or run the gas lind directly from the meter to the water heater and cap off the gas line thats there

My Rheem Tankless Hot Water Heater is installed, but is it not attempting to start. The digital display keeps blinking 82, 0, 82 , 0 ...?


If this is a new board and Altidude chip with power on set dip switch 1 and 2 to on. Then press and hold adjust button until on board blinks fast then and you will see dashes on LCD display. Set dip switches 1 and 2 back to off. Turn on remote unit and you should see 100F. With any luck you are good to go.
