Sounds like it could be a dirty or bad flame sensor.
When the burner lights ,there is a flame sensor in the flame and it is suppose to sense the flame and send a signal back to the control board which will keep the gas valve open, if it gets dirty or is bad it doesn't send the signal back to the board and the board will shut the gas valve off and after three tries it will lock out the furnace and you have to reset it to get it to work again.
The flame sensor looks like a wire and it's in the flame usually it will get gas deposits on it, then it won't work.
You can clean this sensor with an extra fine piece of steel wool, but before you attempt to do this DISCONNECT ALL POWER TO THE FURNACE.

SOURCE: i have a rheem classic
no just repalce all the covers and then cycle to power to the unit and it should take off and go...be aware that the t-stat could take five minutes or so to recycle and star the unit also..

They might ask you to contact the installer. If you installed it yourself ... well that is problematic. For example if vent condensation drain was not installed correctly, the condensation can drip down into the unit causing acidic water that will shorten life of heat exchanger.
Make sure there is affordable qualified service in your area before buying tankless water heater.
Avoid wallet thickness error.
Don't forget to keep up with yearly maintenance, and tankless cannot be exposed to more than 11 grains hardness in water.
And if you need a service manual for your Rheem tankless, well that is problematic since Rheem does not have service manuals ... might try reading Bosch or Bradford white service manuals.
