Door locked with flashing red light on model W10578789


This might work try unplugging it for about 45 -60 seconds and see if it clears the problem. The red light is some type of warning and I would be safe in saying it is a safety device gone bad. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Rheem model 41vrp40n flashes twice and stops working


Error code means that you have electronic gas control valve.

Copy following link to identify gas control valve, read error code meanings for each, and download service manual relevant to each gas control, but not specifically Rheem since rheem does not post service manuals.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

The fact that water heater restarts, means that water heater is getting gas, getting sufficient air for combustion, thermister is ok, gas pressure is good, etc.
The fact that you unplug and replug water heater and it works, shows that you have power vent model.
Since water heater worked correctly before, 2 flashes with Rheem power vent model could mean that pressure switch has failed.

FVD interface failure is flashing. How do I reset the water heater?


Is it flashing 2-3? Try this: 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 am having the same problem as posted by jek01 on Aug 1, my Rheem Tankless Hot Water Heater is not powering off, after two years of use with no issues. I also have to turn the breaker off and wait a short...


Remove power source from the unit. If remote control2.gif 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 support2.gif.

If this helps, please indicate so.

Rheem powervent2 water heater not starting


I am guessing that their is a flag control(switch) in the airstream of the vent and it is now stuck in the closed position due to the snow, maybe. Find the flag switch and make sure it can move freely. It must move freely for the venter fan airstream to operate or move it.
