See page 35 for specifics regarding dip switch settings. If you have problems with the link, post again and I will publish it on my company website for you to review.

Can Richmond tankless heater which is now LP be converted to natural gas?


If it can, then it is done with dip switch settings.
Read your product manual.
Switching types of gas, and messing with dip switches is dangerous.
LP gas burns much hotter than NG, and LP pressures are much higher than NG
Call Rheem with serial number and they might supply the information to you, but will likely tell you to call service technician... leaving you in exact same spot you are in now.

I want to convert my rheem tankless eco150xlp3 to natural gas. There is a gas type chip that plugs into the main board as described in the install manual. Opened the burner and the orifice looks servo...


Sell it on ebay.

A simple chip change will not convert because the orifice for each gas is different, the gas control valve is different, NG and LP gas each burn at different temperatures and pressures... with propane having higher temps and pressures.

Don't buy tankless computers and expect trouble-free installation and water heating bliss afterwards.
Read the manual for maintenance requirements, and look at the parts sheet and ask yourself how such a complex machine will simply balance and monitor water flow, water pressure, incoming and outgoing water temperatures, gas pressures, vent pressures, gas quality, gas pressures, while connected to water, gas, venting and electric systems inside your home which each have innumerable problems on their own.

Install tank type heater for around $400 and live worry free.
Avoid Rheem products since they do not post service manuals.

Rheem does not post service manuals for tankless:

However you might be able to get information calling Rheem.
Copy following link for tank-type service manuals:

Can the Rheem PTG2-42PVN be used with propane gas?


I believe PTG2-42PVN is natural gas.
Rheem site does not show that model number.
As a general rule, Rhemm does not recommend converting NG to LP and LP to NG

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
