Amazingly enough after spending quite a bit of time searching through Rheem documentation and searching online I haven't been able to clearly identify the location of the reset button. More than likely it is on or near the control panel attached to the furnace, but hard to be sure at this point.
Before poking around I suggest calling either Rheem or a certified HVAC tech and asking either.
I also have to ask if there is a reason why you need to hit the reset button. If the furnace is not functioning properly it may be best to find the LED fault/error code display and see if there is a code flashing. Again, after going through Rheem documents and online there is not a lot of information, but I did find this description:
"In the lower panel, you'll notice a little round "window" that peers onto the control board. When the unit shuts down, there will be a little light flashing in the little window. This will be flashing a code, seperated by a pause, and then the code again. Count the number of flashes, and correspond that number with the error chart listed on the inside of the lower door."
So if you can ID the error code it will give a sense of the problem. More than likely you will need to call and HVAC tech to come and do a full diagnosis and to fix the problem. To find one in your area go here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present. To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
