Question about Rheem Direct Vent Natural Gas Tankless Water Heater For 1-2 Bathroom Homes

1 Answer

Loud Vibration/Noise when System Starts

Just installed a Rheem (Natural Gas Direct Vent Tankless) ECO180DVN and have a noisy vibration when turning on hot water. I only hear the vibration when system starts heating the water. If I turn off the water and turn it back on after a couple of seconds I will have another vibration, but it is not as noisy as when the original vibration.

Please let me know if this is normal or how to fix the problem.

This happen when there is air in the gas line...if the problem is still there after a couple of days you will have to return the unit for an exchange the gas control is giving problem...contact rheem first before making a exchange decision..they will walk you some step first to ensure there is not a problem

I have a Rheem rtg-74pvn-2 tankless water heater installed in 03/09. Intermittently the hot water stops when only the hot water tap is on. No error codes appear. Bill W.

Sounds like you may have the wrong type gas going to this? Is this an LP gas or natural gas unit? will say on label. Natural gas units run only on natural gas ditto for LP. Could be issue with manifold pressure settings. Could be obstruction in exchanger or vent. Have a authorized technician check over
