Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your

issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of your situation. I need the actual model number. It's on the BTU rating tag inside the burner compartment

I'm going to assume you mean a RGPH as there is no model RGPN listed in Rheem's data base. Does the unit have a hot surface igniter (glow plug?) or spark ignition?
