SOURCE: rheem model 41vrp40n power vent water heater won't

"Pres sw open" means there is insufficient air flow. either the vent if blocked, or the blower turns too slow/ or died.

you need to replace the upper thermostat, it has the overtemp switch made to it. Also make sure that the thermostat is pushed up tight to the tank with no space or object between them.

SOURCE: Rheem Power Vent 2 water heater is flashing 4

The flashing light is a trouble sequence light. Find your manual to see what 4 flashes means. It's usually attached to the side of the water heater tank. Try a quick fix by unplugging the power vent and see what happens.

Rheem does not post service manuals:
Here are resources that can help solve problem:
1) Troubleshoot by type of gas control valve using other water heater manufacturer's service manuals: Service manuals are very large pdf files.

Are water heater runs for about a minute then the code C7 13 Code flashes and we lose our hot water?


Call Rheem for a new unit. They problem will never be fixed. They have redesigned the unit. It is now RTG-95DVN a self contained venting unit. Mine was worked on several times over two years and much frustration before they finally replaced it.

There was a bird nest in the blower outlet pipe causing my Rheem Power Vent 2 to stop working. I cleaned out the nest but now it won't restart. I have tried turning it off then back on. The indicator...


you will need to take the vent off and blow it out to make sure noe of the nest is still in also look inside the blower and make sure there are no dead birds, or debris in the blower, it is vary hot air and would not be the first time an animal got freid inside the vent,,,,
