Replacing a rheem power vent water heater


1) Avoid Rheem.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Which-is-best-gas-water-heater.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

2) Maintain water heater. Pay yourself 10$ a month in future replacement costs.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-maintain-water-heater.html

3) Read product manual for power vent specifications.
Keep in mind that power vent on top of heater can sometimes cover access to anode rod located on top of tank.

Rheem tankless water heater error code 11


Error 11 is ignition failure, or insufficient gas, or defective sensor, dirty combustion parts.
Do the yearly required maintenance such as cleaning the combustion parts, and error code will probably be solved.
Problem is Rheem does not post service manuals for people to learn how to service their equipment without calling service tech.
Copy following link for Rheem troubleshoot resources
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

The cost of yearly maintenance will easily eat away the expected yearly savings of $100 for typical family of 4.

Rheem model 41vrp40n flashes twice and stops working


Error code means that you have electronic gas control valve.

Copy following link to identify gas control valve, read error code meanings for each, and download service manual relevant to each gas control, but not specifically Rheem since rheem does not post service manuals.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#intellivent

The fact that water heater restarts, means that water heater is getting gas, getting sufficient air for combustion, thermister is ok, gas pressure is good, etc.
The fact that you unplug and replug water heater and it works, shows that you have power vent model.
Since water heater worked correctly before, 2 flashes with Rheem power vent model could mean that pressure switch has failed.

I have a poloma model/ pt62-42pvn its flashing error code c4 76 i have had no hot water for six days now need help


1) Before calling service technician who can test parts, open following link for Rheem resources including error codes, Rheem chat and phone number, possible manual:
If local technician cannot solve problem, Rheem can probably recommend a person.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

2) Error codes are start-point for troubleshooting.

3) Multiple error codes can indicate PC board failure.
If your computer motherboard fails, most people feel the computer is compromised even after motherboard replacement.

4) Error code C7-76 is communication error with remote, and can include bad remote, bad wire to remote, loose wire, or bad PC board.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-error-code-C7-76.pdf

5) Error C4-13 can include part failure, vent problem, oxygen depletion, and can also include PC board failure.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Error-code-13.pdf

6) Tankless routine maintenance manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Tankless-maintenance.pdf

7) Some posts about tankless concede that qualified technician was unable to repair unit.
Solve most tankless problems yourself, same day, for about $350.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

8) Take a moment and rate answer:
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on water heater or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

I have a Rheem RTG-74DVP-1. I am having problems now with it not heating. I have had codes 4, 7, and 8 all come up followed by a 76 all within two days


Usually multiple error codes means PC board failure, but could also be overdue maintenance or other part failure, or simply a combination of events.
before calling service technician, open following link for Rheem troubleshooting resources:

RHEEM 50 GALLON WATER HEATER,4 BLINKS THEN 2 BLINKS ,ECO FAILURE,UNPLUGGED HEATER STARTS UP AGAIN THEN FAILURE OCCURS AGAIN.


That is a power vent failure code.
Rheem is aware of this problem and are changing systems as we speak. Call your Rheem dealer and demand the updated system.
