Pull the cover off and you will see two sets of dip switches in the lower right corner. The set of 8 switches is the ones you want. Take the #6 of the bank of 8 and turn it on. Then hit the up arrow until you reach your desired temp.

Expert:  WCohn replied 5 months ago.

Wait I'm sorry I typed that wrong. Turn numbers 3&4 on. Leave the rest alone

Expert:  WCohn replied 5 months ago.

So to be clear. Bank of 8 switches. Numbers 3 & 4 should be on and 5 should be off. That'll give you 60°C

Expert:  WCohn replied 5 months ago.

Once you've done that can you please rate me positively. It's the only way I get credit for helping you.

Give me the complete model number. From the sticker on the side. Might be something like Reu-vr2426

Expert:  WCohn replied 5 months ago.

Okay. Here's the dip switch settings. This is the same thing I already told you, but maybe my typing it was confusing. So this is from the manual. Notice the model number.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.

Expert:  WCohn replied 5 months ago.

You could call Rinnai. Good luck.
