Contact Paloma/Rheem 866-720-2076. Super nice! I just called regarding mine. Having same problem Rheem Paloma sending parts out tomorrow overnite. Try turn it on/ off by moving tiny switch under the unit that tells you the temperature. Run your fingers along the bottom to find it. That is a temporary fix. Below is a website with all the error codes, so you know what is wrong. Good luck and blessings!

Before calling service technician, open following links for Rheem troubleshooting resources, including generic error codes and contact information for Rheem and recent manuals:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html
http://www.fixya.com/tags/rtg_74pvn

Error codes are start place for troubleshoot, and multiple error codes can indicate bad PC board.
Same error code on one machine can be different cause and solution than another machine.

Error 76 is usually communication problem with remote control.
Disconnect wires from machine, and clean terminals is a start point.
Wire between machine and remote might be bad, or remote control is bad, or PC board or wiring connections are bad.

The problem might be solved by having technician catch the machine up on yearly maintenance.

Manual for same-similar product shows maintenance and troubleshooting and a few error codes, but not 76:
For the most part, the manual recommends calling service technician instead of offering DIY details.

What can cause Hot/Cold spikes on an RTG74-XN


Crossover, low hot water flow, low water pressure, sediment in water lines or heater, heat exchanger needs to be de-limed, water filter needs to be cleaned, water heater temperature set too high, incoming water temperature too high or too low depending on model, MUD or PUD districts with pressure spikes, dirty faucet aerators, loose wires, bad sensor, faulty PD-board, bad venting, dirty burner and combustion parts, etc.

Crossover

MODEL NO. RTGL 74XN\r\nNOT WORKING SAYING CODE [C211]


Before calling service technician, open following links for Rheem troubleshooting resources:
C2 11 is no ignition:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/ErrorcodeTroubleshooting.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

Tankless water heater should have yearly maintenance that includes cleaning burner parts, with check of ignition parts, wiring, ignition sequence, gas supply, and bleed gas line if needed.
Chances are that your unit needs to catch up on maintenance.
Maintenance can also catch any condensation problems and make venting adjustments so parts are not degraded due to vent issues.
Tankless should also be delimed each year to preserve efficiency of heat exchanger.

NO REAL PROBLEMS FOR 3 YEARS, BUT SHOULD I SERVICE UNIT OR AT LEAST CLEAN THE BURNERS?


Following link shows preventative maintenance on page 28
Other Rheem tankless manuals show same information
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/DirectVentManualRTG-74PVN-1.pdf

I have also heard that tankless are susceptible to lime build up and should be de-limed each year.
Page 32 shows lime build-up as a troubleshoot cause.

RTG-74XN2 won't put out hot water until about 9am.


Tankless questions are complicated because these units have many parts, and both internal and external issues can cause problems. Also problems can arise from combination of issues including maintenance, incoming water temperature, pressure, air quality, venting, water quality, water pressure, in addition to internal washers, gaskets, and parts functioning perfectly with each other over time.

Hot water only after a certain time of day indicates problem might be pressure related.
Which could be local water supply, or clog in line, or sediment on pressure sensor, failed pressure sensor, dirty in-line sediment filter, improper vent, or combination of things listed.

Rheem suggests calling service technician.
Service technicians train for years on one brand of tankless, and then see something new each day.
To understand why service technician is recommended, view number of UNanswered questions on following link showing one Rheem tankless model number.
http://www.fixya.com/tags/rtg_74pvn

I suggest avoiding tankless water heaters since all costs are energy.

Clogged pressure sensor after 2 years exposure to hard water. De-liming tankless will not prevent failure from hard water.
