Sequence of Operations
Action
Hot water faucet is open creating a demand
Explanation
Hot water draw initiates water flow thru
the machine.
Water flows through the Water Flow Sensor
Minimum flow rate of .66 gallons per
minute.
Printed Circuit Board (PCB) senses the flow
rate has reached a minimum demand of 0.66
gpm
PCB is the ‘brains’ of the machine and
controls all input and actions during
sequence of operations.
Fan conducts a pre-purge
Pre purge is designed to verify we have a
clear and clean vent.
The Proportional Gas Flow Regulator allows
the gas to flow to the main burner
PGFR opens to full BTU input initially.
At the same time, the igniter continuously
sparks and ignites the main burner
The spark igniter ignites the fuel in the
main burner area. Both left and right
burner will fire initially.
After ignition, the Flame Rods sense and
monitor the flame and ensures combustion
The purpose of the flame rods is to verify
flame. In the event of flame failure (or
presence when none is expect) the unit will
go into an error code.
The “In Use Indicator” on remote control
turns "ON" (Red) and the Priority Indicator
turns Green (multiple remote controls).
Main Burner is now lit. The PCB goes thru
a series of calculations (input sensing) to
balance out the cold-water temperature, the
thermostat setting, the hot outlet
temperature and the BTU required to heat
the water.
The Proportional Gas Flow Regulator Valve
continuously adjusts the gas volume in order to
maintain the outlet temperature. The water
flow sensor also adjusts the proper amount of
cold water mix flow to supply a stable hot
water temperature at all times. A signal is also
sent to the fan motor in order to constantly
maintain the correct proportion between the
gas volume and air volume.
Again, the PCB is constantly monitoring
all of these inputs and actions to ensure the
outlet water temperature is within 1 degree
of thermostat setting. It also monitors the
BTU required to heat the cold water to the
thermostat setting and adjusts the gas valve
accordingly.

SVC 810 Tankless Troubleshooting Manual
Action
(For indoor model only) When the air intake is
blocked, or oxygen in a room is not sufficient,
the output of the thermocouple that is located
in the Oxygen Depletion Sensing Burner
(ODS) will change.
Explanation
The PC Board senses this change and
controls the Fan and Proportional Gas
Control Valve in order to prevent imperfect
combustion. If the control board cannot
correct such condition, the unit will go into
an error code.
When the hot water tap is closed, the flow rate
signal from water flow sensor stops.
Gas valve is closed. Main burner shuts off.
The fan conducts a post purge.
The purpose of the post purge is to cool the
heat exchanger.
Sensors and Safety
Oxygen Depletion Sensing System Operation
Oxygen Depletion Safety Device (ODSD) Sensing
Burner - Indoor Model Only
The sensing burner is a primary air type ceramic
burner that consists of an outer jacket surrounding
the flame opening and a thermocouple to detect
flame temperature. The sensing burner is located in
the part of the main burner and designed to monitor the flame condition at all times. In case the
oxygen level decreases due to blocked or clogged air intake or flue venting or by contaminated
air (not enough oxygen content), location of the flame, as well as its temperature, will change.
This change will be detected by the ODSD thermocouple.
The unit will attempt to resolve the problem on its own by adjusting the
quantity of fuel and adjusting the fan speed. During this resolution period,
the unit will show a flash code of 05 and have an audible alarm. In the
event the unit cannot fix the fuel air mixture, the unit will shut down with
a flash code of 13.
Here is how the ODS sensing system works.

Yes
PCB continues to try to fix the air-fuel mixture
my adding airflow. It now adds a visual alarm on
the Remote Control by flashing both the red and
green indicators.
Unit is operating normally.
Is the ODS thermocouple detecting normal
temperatures?
No
Final attempt by the PCB to increase the airflow
rate to balance the air-fuel mixture.
Yes
PCB continues to try to fix the air-fuel mixture
by adding airflow. It now adds an audible alarm
on the Remote Control by sounding a tone every
60 seconds and flashes a monitor code of 05.
Unit is operating normally.
If the unit does not detect normal ODS
thermocouple temperatures, then unit will shut
down with an error code of 13.
NOTE
Shutdown by imperfect combustion can be reset by pressing power switch (ON/OFF Button). If
shutdown occurs 5 times within 4 hours, the water heater will not recover for the next 4 hours.
How to Reset the Four (4) Hour ODS Timer
1. Turn the unit OFF. Remove the front cover. Locate the dip switches on the control board.
2. Make sure all the dip switches are OFF (down position).
3. Locate the #2 dip switch and turn it ON (up position) then immediately turn it off.
4. Within 5 seconds, press and hold both the MIN and MAX button for at least 2 seconds.
5. The remote control will flash briefly. This is your signal that the fault history has been cleared.
6. You can operate the machine.
Overheat Film Wrap
The Overheat Film Wrap detects the heat
exchanger if and when it overheats. The over
heat limiter is the plastic film wrap with the
black squiggly lines.
It constantly monitors the heat exchanger
temperature and will show an Error Code 14
in the event the heat exchanger gets too hot.

SVC 810 Tankless Troubleshooting Manual
Heat Exchanger Thermistor
The Heat Exchanger Thermistor monitors the temperature of the water
inside the heat exchanger. It will activate to Error Code 15 if the water
temperature exceeds 207º F for more than 15 seconds; or 230º F for more
than 1 second. It will also show an Error Code 32 if the thermistor is
disconnected from the circuit board.
Maintenance Panel Display
The Rheem Tankless has a Maintenance Display chart on the remote
control panel. To access the Maintenance Display, turn the unit OFF.
Then hold down the UP and DOWN arrow keys at the same time for a
few seconds. You will hear an audible beep and see the display go to
0E. By pressing the UP and DOWN arrow keys on the remote display,
you can access a variety of information about the machine. For Example
a code at 3E (recent faults) may display as 21 (Error Code 21).

6. You can verify clearing of fault history by entering Maintenance Mode and check the
code at location 1E. It should read NULL or ┌┐.
Adjusting the Burner Control Assembly (Printed Circuit Board)
The purpose of this procedure is the balance the fuel pressure and air volume at the burner
manifolds. This procedure will ensure that you get optimal performance of the modulating
characteristics of the unit by allowing firing rates between 19,000 BTU (minimum) and 199,900
BTU (maximum).
WARNING: You will need to perform this procedure when you replace the PCB or install a
new altitude chip. Without the adjustment, the water heater may not function properly.
When replacing the printed circuit boards adjust as follows.
Measurement of Fan Pressure:
Measure the fan pressure before adjusting the burner manifold pressure. The fan pressure differs
depending on models, types of gas and installation condition. Measure the fan pressure at each
installation site.
1. Measurement of "Minimum" Capacity
a. Without opening the hot water tap, push the “SW1" Button on PC Board.
b. Using the manometer, measure and record the pressure (in. w.c.).
2. Measurement of "Maximum" Capacity
a. Without opening the hot water tap, push the "SW2" Button on PC Board.
b. Using the manometer, measure and record the pressure (in. w.c.).
Adjustment of Burner Manifold Pressure:
NOTE: Always start from "Minimum" when adjusts the burner manifold pressure. The
display is on remote control. Always connect the remote control to monitor this procedure.
1. Adjustment of "Minimum" capacity

d. You can change the gas pressure by pushing the "SW1" button. Using the
manometer, adjust the minimum manifold pressure to the standard pressure plus
the measured minimum fan pressure.
e. Release the "SW1" button.
2. Adjustment of "Maximum" capacity
a. Open the hot water tap fully to allow the water heater to ignite a maximum
operating flow. You may need to turn on up to three fixtures to get max water
flow.
b. Push the Adjusting Button on the PC Board. [LH] is displayed on the LED of
remote control.
c. Hold the Adjusting Button; push the "SW2" Button on the PC Board. The current
figure [01 - 39] is displayed on the LED of remote control.
d. You can change the test gas pressure by pushing the "SW2" button every time.
Using the manometer, adjust the minimum manifold pressure to the standard
pressure plus the measured maximum fan pressure.
e. Release the "SW2" button.
Note: If [EE] is displayed on the LED of remote control, adjust again with caution. This means
there was an error in the adjustment sequence.
How to Check Manifold Gas Pressure
When the “MAX” or “MIN” button is pushed, the combustion is fixed at the respective firing rate.

http://www.wunderground.com/
When the water heater is installed above
3,280 feet, adjustment of the Program Chip is
required. Without adjusting the Program
Chip, the water heater may not function
properly. If the water heater is installed less
than 3,280 feet, no Program chip is required
or supplied and no action is necessary. A
different Program chip is required for every
3,280 feet. The Program chip is not
interchangeable between Indoor and
Outdoor models or types of gas.
1. Check the altitude (above sea level) where the water heater is installed.
2. Ensure that you have the correct Program chip for proper model, gas type and altitude.
3. Disconnect the electric power to the water heater. Turn off the gas shutoff valve and
water shutoff valve.
4. Remove the front cover.
5. Place Program Chip as shown on PCB.
6. Turn on the electric power.

MIC-180 & EZ Link
There are two kinds of communications cables when manifolding multiple
tankless units. If only two like units are connected together, we call that EZ
Link. This process uses a single 6 foot long cable with four colored wires at
each end. You can recognize the EZ Link cable by the yellow wire at each
end. These cables may be plugged in either way.
The other manifolding process uses the MIC-180 control panel to connect up to 20 tankless units
at a time. These communications cables come in multiple lengths and have one end of the cable
with a single red, white and black wire. These cables must be plugged in a certain way for the
system to communicate properly. Plug the 3-wire end into the tankless water heater; plug the
other (4-wire) end into the MIC-180 control board.

Error Code 03 (MIC-180 & EZLink Only)
Explanation: Manifold Control Failure. The unit has lost the communications link between itself
and the MIC-180; or between the two units with EZLink.
At a minimum check the following:
1. Verify the communications cable is plugged into
the printed circuit boards on the water heaters and
the MIC-180.
2. Verify #4 Dip Switch is in the ON position for
each water heater in the manifold.
Turn power off. Unplug the communications cable from all units. Turn each unit ON (one at a
time) and make an attempt for main burner. We are trying to see if each unit works without the
communications cable links. If a unit does not go to main burner, then troubleshoot that unit.
Then, one at a time, reconnect the communications cable and go main burner.
Did the unit go
to main burner?
No
Replace the Printed Circuit Board
Replace communications cable
Conduct continuity check of the communications cable.
Yes
Everything appears to be normal.

OK - If you gone this far, there is one more thing to check. The pick-up
sensor in the water flow control may be bad; or the board may be bad.
Try this test:
Check connector S between the Red and Black. With the unit ON and
no water flow, you should be 11-15 DC volts. If not, replace the PCB.
IF you have voltage, then.......
With the water flowing, measure 2-5 DC volts between the Brown and
Black wire. (This is measuring water flow thru the control). IF you have
a reading and no main burner, replace the PCB. If you do not have a
reading, replace the water flow sensor.
The problem is with the
remote control or the wiring
to the remote control.
Disconnect all additional
wiring to the remote control
and connect it directly to the
Remote Terminal of the
PCB.

Error Code 12
Explanation: Flame Failure. Unit went to main burner for a period of time; but has since lost
flame or the ability to verify the presence of flame. At a minimum check the following in all
cases:
1. Bleed all air from gas lines.
2. Ensure appliance is properly grounded.
3. Ensure gas line, meter, and regulator are sized properly.
4. Ensure gas type and gas pressure to the machine is correct.
5. Flex lines with a full 3/4 inch inside diameter may also restrict fuel flow enough to give
you error code 11.
For convenience, the RTG 66 model has a ¼ inch inlet gas pressure check port
on the gas connection nipple.

SVC 810 Tankless Troubleshooting Manual
Error Code 13
Explanation: Oxygen Depletion Sensor activated. The unit was not able to resolve an imperfect
combustion issue. At a minimum check the following in all cases:
1. Check for lack of fresh combustion air such as in a tight closet.
2. Check maintenance history to see if this is the first incidence of failure with this code.
Is the ODS
thermocouple
OK?
Yes
No
Is the burner

connector Q between Red
and White wires:
8 to 30 m VDC
The water heater seems to be normal.
Try to operate again.
No
Confirm and adjust burner
manifold pressure. See
instructions on page 39.
Check the following:
* Dirt or blockage of the heat
exchanger or venting. Clean if
necessary.
* Check for dirt or blockage of the
fan motor or air intake on the front
cover. Clean if necessary.
* Check for blockage of the flame
opening of the sensing burner.
Clean the entire burner assy.
including sensing burner.
* Disconnect the thermocouple and
connector. Replace the upper burner
assy. Re-attach the connector firmly.
If you get error code 13 and you can not seem to locate the problem, then try this to check for a
potential missing sensor damper:
1. Check the wire from the ODS to PCB. A disconnected or loose wire will also show Ø
(zero) voltage in maintenance mode.
2. Recycle unit to main burner.
3. Run the unit for at least 3 minutes in main burner mode
4. Did the unit:
a. Shut down at exactly 2.5 minutes?
b. Never go to EC '05' to try and fix the problem? (ODS generated too low voltage
against minimum required voltage from ODS. The board never "senses" it is in an
ODS failure and never tries to correct itself with the '05' code.)
5. If so:
a. Recycle power and go to maintenance mode.
b. Go to cell ØA.
c. Verify Ø voltage present (that is the correct reading) when main burner is off.
d. Press the ON/OFF button to go to main burner. Turn on a water faucet.
e. Run the unit for at least 3 minutes and watch the display cell ØA.
f. If you get between8 mv and 30 mv, then the ODS and burner are probably OK.
50
SVC 810 Tankless Troubleshooting Manual
g. If within 3 minutes, you get any reading, and then the reading drops below 8 mv,
and then goes to Ø, then we have a problem with the ODS, a missing sensor
damper or the burner itself. Replace the burner assembly.
What is the big different between normal error code 13 and no SD (Sensor Damper)? Normally
error code 13 is just low voltage or frequency; it means the ODS is still sensing a burner flame.
But if the SD is missing, there is no fire on ODS from the beginning of the main burner
operation.
Does ODS still generate voltage because main burner ON? Yes, but the voltage is much lower
than the PCB requires. You can verify this at cell ØA in maintenance mode.
Error Code 14
Explanation: Overheat Film Wrap has activated. There may be a hot spot on the heat exchanger
that has caused the overheat film wrap to fault. At a minimum check the following:
1. Check gas type of unit and ensure it matches gas type being used.
2. Check heat exchanger for cracks and/or separations.
3. Check for restrictions in airflow around unit and vent terminal.
4. Check for a foreign materials in exhaust venting.
5. Before checking resistance of Molex connections, remove the Molex from the circuit
board.
