Question about Rinnai RHFE-1004FA 38,400 BTU Energy Saver Ductless Heater - LP Gas
I have the Rinnai RHFE 1004fa. It is making a hideous squealing noise when the heat is blowing. The problem started as an intermittent squeal that wasn't nearly as loud. Now it is all the time when the heater is running and it is crazy loud. It's in my living room and it is driving me crazy. So crazy that I'd rather be cold. Here's a link to a video I took where you can hear it. Hold your ears! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=3291994983847

SOURCE: Rinnai RHFE 1004F Error code 49
A 49 error code is caused by the pressure switch either not proving or a bad component. Check the hose attached from the plastic elbow located behind the heater going to a small square pressure switch found inside the heater. It may have come loose or a mouse may have taken a bite out of it. Also while you are behind the heater, pull off the hose that looks like a vacuum cleaner hose and run the heater with it unattached. If it runs, you have a blockage in the vent. If not, take a flashlight and go outside to the vent. Look down the center pipe for any obstructions. If it still does not work, you may need a new pressure switch.
While the front panel is off the heater, cycle the heater to attempt a start. You want to make sure the blower turns. If it does not, check the wire connections to it. You may be looking at a bad blower. If it is turning but still does not start, we are looking at a bad pressure switch.
Let me know what you find, I may have a switch or blower motor that you can purchase.

Beside the filters in the back, no they don't require much. After 8 years of installing and servicing these units, I haven't found a unit yet that was running faulty due to lack of service. Would recommend a cleaning of the burners about every 3-5 years. Rinnai recommends cleaning the unit with compressed air through the front grate annually...but that doesn't require disassembly
