REU-56ES Wont Fire Up I have

I have just purchased a Motor home fitted with a Rinnai REU-56ES,I have asked 2 egineers to have a look at it,and it has beaten them both.It appears to have 2 Black wires that are disconected from the Micro Switch on the right,looking face on.But one engineer said they were for an auxillary fan and nothing to do with my problem.So, I have 3 questions for you...1) Is there anyone local to me in the Romford Area who could fix it? 2) Can I still buy a new one,and just keep the current machine for spares?If so,Can you supply it and how much?3)If the model has since been up dated,is the new model the same size?And will it fit to the existing flue? I think thats more than 3 questions but Im now desperate. Thankyou in anticipation ****.

If you are in Romford UK, then here you find a list of authorized repair:

    I will answer more extensively to your questions:

    1:
    The best thing to do to find an authorized repair near you, is probably calling Rinnai UK at 01928 531870

    2 is not for sale anymore, if you buy a new model many spares will be different, you will still be able to use some common spare.

    3 REU-56ES is out of production, however you can still get the 58 e that is pretty similar for about 150 pounds, see :RINNAI 58E CARAVAN GAS WATER HEATER.

    Here is also the repair manual for your unit : Rinnai

No hot water from kitchen tap


The hot side of the faucet is most likely plugged with something that came up thru the water system. The average thankless waterheater requires at least 1/2 to 3/4 gpm flow rate for the unit to sense flow and turn on. If there is not enough flow it will not fire and heat the water. Not sure about this particular unit but a few require at least one full gallon per minute flow. So chances are that if you fix the faucet, you fix the hot water issue at the same time

I have a old Rinnai gas water heater Mod REU 55 FTB, after a year not in used, now the gas can not flow, how is the solution ? Thx


If it hasn't been in use for a year or so there could be a couple problems. Sometimes the gas dissipates from the line after an extended period of inactivity. You may need to try several times to light the pilot or the line may need to be purged. Also, if there's gas to the appliance and the pilot will light but not stay on the thermocouple is bad and should be replaced.

Im looking for the best option to get a Rinnai unit that would supply water at 30c or just below. i was going to buy the REU 55RT but looking at the manual i dont know how low the temp can get


Most tankless are preset to 120 degrees F.
30 degrees C is 86 degrees F.

If you want adjustable product, then tankless is not best choice.
Tankless are high tech gadgets with multiple interrelated parts controlled by sensors feeding information to control board. Everything internal and external has to be working correctly for tankless to work at all.
Most tankless brands do not suggest self-install, or self-adjustment, or any adjustment for reason given above.
You would be better off buying typical tank-type gas or electric and then thermostat adjustment is simple.

Ask the plumber who did the mods. to come a check that he hasn't crossed a hot/cold pipe. Really sounds like he has, this would cause hot water to mix with cold. Is the water hotter further away from where he did his work? This would be a clue. Easy way to check is to turn off the water to the hot water system, should be a valve on the middle pipe going in to the heater. This should turn off all water to all your hot taps. If you still have water at any hot tap or shower then the pipes have been crossed.

I have a Rinnai REU 55ft, which ignites but won't stay lit. We've cleaned the filters, fiddled with the dials and ensured that the batteries and propane are good. Any thoughts?


Hello,
In these water heaters there is a part called a "flame sensor", if you can read the wiring diagram/schematic spend some time trying to find where it is at; it will be located directly in the burner compartment. It senses that the gas is lit and there is flame, if it does not then it will shut the gas off almost within 3 seconds.
Solution- Turn off the power to the unit completely and take the flame sensor out and clean it with a 000 steel wool pad. These flame sensors develop carbon from the gas and then stop reading properly. You can test the measurement if you had an electrical meter (uA is how it would be listed on your meter- most basic meters have this function).
Let me know if this works, if not I have another solution you could try (I'm pretty sure this will do the trick though) James

This is an error code 12, not 12 degrees. You have a short on your low voltage side by the sounds of it.. First disconnect the controllers inside the heater. Turn of the power first, 2 screws top and bottom to take the frnot panel off. Follow the low voltage wires (not the power point ones) to the PCB on the ride side and disconnect them both. Panel back on, power on and try the heater again. If this fixes it you have a short circuit in the controller or the wires leading to it. If not the most likely short circuit is on the thermal fuse which loops around the heat exchanger. This will need an expert, Perth has plenty north and south of the river. Give Rinnai a ring first, they have some good staff in Perth who might help.
