Tankless Water heaters have a automatic pilot and digital water temperature control system; you have to turn on the water in the house to get it to kick on that is unless you have a circulation pump on a timer. If the gas supply doesn't have atleast a 2" rating that with cause the tankless to malfunction because it's not getting enough gas pressure; certified professionals rarely make this mistake. Moreover, if you don't have a water softener you are using with the tankless you voided your warranty; the minirals clog the heat exchanger.

It is most likely the water valve stuck open, telling the controls to heat water, that it thinks is flowing through it, but without actual flow it overheats. Depending on how comfortable you are with taking it apart yourself, you could open the valve to see if it just needs cleaned out, or if you have a ruptured diaphragm or some other cause.

Probably a bad solenoid in the gas valve. Higher voltage of a new thermocouple keeps it open longer but it still fails over a period of time. Look into a new gas valve for the water heater.

The Reliance 606 has an enclosed thermal couple. Before you try taking that assembly apart take a wire brush to the bottom opening directly under the burner. There is a metal filter on the very bottom of the water heater. It could be that the filter has gotten filled with dust or animal hair. It took a serviceman 2 days to figure this out for me. The water heater has to have good airflow through that filter to work well.
