    If it is a thermostat problem, what can I do? -can I repair it? - If not - where can I purchase one? Do I have to go to the manufacturer or seller? "thermostat issue" answer doesn't solve the problem.

    I guess I have to buy a new control set.

Proceedure to change Thermostat :-


Old thermostats are wired at very low-voltage, so there is very little shock risk. I replaced mine without turning off the power, but I'm not necessarily recommending that to anyone. Flip the breaker to cut the power, to be on the safe side.
The first step is to remove the cover from your old thermostat. It might just pop off, or there might be screws holding it in place. Don't remove the entire unit yet, just the front plate or cover.
Inside your old thermostat, there will be a number of wires, all fastened to points inside the unit and disappearing back into the wall. Each wire will be labelled (either on the wire itself, or at the connection point) with a letter. With labels that come with your new thermostat, or pieces of masking tape, clearly mark each wire.
Disconnect each wire, taking great care not to let them fall back into the wall. The labels are likely large enough to keep them from falling through the hole, but you need to watch them. Wrap them around a pencil, or clip them together with a large binder clip. The last thing you need is to have to fish a skinny little wire back up through that hole.
Once all the wires are disconnected and labelled, then you can remove the rest of the old thermostat unit from the wall. You should now have a hole in your wall, with a number of wires sticking out.
Your new thermostat will have a hole in the back for the wires to come through. Pull the bundle of wires through, and place the unit against the wall. Use a level to make sure it's straight and attach to the wall, using the screws provided. You can also use anchors if you wish, though I have never felt the need to.
Ok, now you have your new unit in place and it's time to reconnect all those wires. Read the instruction manual carefully at this point. Depending on your existing wiring, you will likely only have to match up the wires (G goes to G, and Y goes to Y, for example). But your manual will explain how to arrange the wires if the letters are not the same. Most configurations can be adjusted for.
Put new batteries in your thermostat, and put the front cover in place. Your thermostat should be up and running at this point. You will need to follow the manufacturer's directions to learn how to program the unit.



Thnx.

Dear Sir/madam, Auto select of main burner: Press burner button, the flame is on ?AUTO? select. Press button to set temperature. If the room temperature is two degree lower than the set temperature on the remote, the main burner will turn on until the surrounding temperature is two degree higher than the set temperature. Once it reaches temperature on the remoter, the main burner will automatically Shut Off. Thanks Good luck

Check the control selector for any damaged and if its working properly.

the thermostat selector or the heating element is not functioning properly, or a defective part was causing the unit to shut down.

Does the pilot light stay lit if you continually depress the control valve?
If the pilot light stays lit as long as you keep the valve depressed, then the problem is the thermocouple is bad. The pilot light makes enough electricity via the thermocouple to hold open the gas valve that feeds the burners. If the thermocouple fails to produce that electricity, the gas valve will shut down and switch off the gas flow to the whole unit.

RHFE Rinnai 551FT gas heater is not working after 7 years


see this steps and fix it. God bless you
.
If there is no heat, check the electrical service panel for a burned fuse or tripped breaker. Relight the pilot light (see below).
If there is not enough heat, adjust the burner air shutter (see below); and clean the burner ports (see below).
If the pilot light does not light or does not stay lit, clean the pilot orifice carefully with a toothpick, test the thermocouple and replace it if it is faulty (see below).
If the flame flickers, adjust the pilot (see below).
If there is an exploding sound when the burner ignites, adjust the pilot to a higher setting and clean the pilot orifice and the burner ports.
If the burner takes more than a few seconds to ignite, clean the pilot orifice and adjust the pilot light.
If the burner flame is uneven, clean the burner ports. If the burner flame is very yellow, clean the burner; open vents in the furnace room to provide more air; adjust the burner air shutter.
To light the pilot on a standing-pilot (always on) ignition system, follow the lighting instructions located near the control. Otherwise, try these steps:
Light the pilot:
  1. gasfurnace1.jpg Press and hold the pilot control knob to start the pilot. Set the control knob to the pilot position. Hold a long match under the pilot gas port.
  2. Press the control knob; the pilot should light. Hold the control knob down until the flame is burning brightly (about 30 seconds). Release pressure on the knob, and turn it to the on position.
  3. If the pilot goes out when you release the control knob, try relighting, holding the control knob down longer. If the pilot again goes out, check the thermocouple (below).
Adjust the pilot:
  1. Remove any cap covering the pilot adjusting screw on a combination control.
  2. Turn the adjusting screw counterclockwise to increase the flame or clockwise to decrease it. It is correctly adjusted when the flame envelops the thermocouple bulb by 1/2 inch and appears dark blue with a small yellow tip.
Test and replace a thermocouple:
  1. Hold the control knob to pilot and light the pilot as above.
  2. Unscrew the thermocouple fitting with an open-ended wrench.
  3. Set a multimeter to the DVC (lowest voltage) scale.
  4. Clip one multimeter lead to the end of the thermocouple tube nearest the pilot and the other lead to the fitting on the other end of the tube.
  5. If the multimeter shows a reading besides zero, the thermocouple is functioning. Replace the thermocouple tube.
  6. If there is no reading, you will need to clean or replace the thermocouple following steps 7 through 11.
  7. Release the control knob and shut off the main gas valve on the gas-supply pipe that leads into the burner. Shut off power to the burner at the electrical service panel .
  8. Remove the thermocouple from its mounting bracket.
  9. Wipe the combination control clean and install a new thermocouple, tightening it by hand, then give it a one-quarter turn with a wrench.
  10. Insert the thermocouple into the pilot bracket, being careful to not crimp the tubing.
  11. Turn on power to the furnace and relight the pilot (above).
Adjust an adjustable burner air shutter:
  1. Set the thermostat to its highest setting to keep the burner running. Once the furnace has heated up, remove the burner access panel and loosen the locking screw.
  2. Open the shutter by turning it to the right until the blue base of the flame appears to lift slightly from the burner port surface. Then close the shutter until the flame reseats itself on the surface.
Clean removable burner tubes and ports:
  1. Shut off gas and power to the furnace.
  2. Unscrew or loosen and remove the tubes from the supporting bracket.
  3. Carefully clean the tubes with a brush or vacuum, making sure not to damage the burner ports.
  4. Use a stiff wire to clear any debris from clogged ports.

The thing with these is over the summer months when they are not in use they get dust inside the ODS safety pilot. When that dust gets in there it cuts down on the oxygen inside and the safety simply shuts down because it was designed to do that. What you need to do is flush the pilot and allow it to dry. I use a product caller but you could use shop air or even a soda straw to blow out the pilot. I used to sell these thermocouples for ODS systems and they are not cheap. Most times they do not solve the problem either because the pilot is dusty. A brand new one won't solve your problem and a cheaper thermocouple don't work on these. More HERE


Here is the whole thing for $52 not a bad price
The thermacouple alone for these cost nearly as much by itself.

I can get the pilot light lit but will not stay on to light the burners


Try cleaning the thermocouple or replace it. The thermocouple senses heat from the pilot light and in turn brings up the gas to the main burners upon request from the thermostat.

How do i light pilot light?


Remove front cover,or just lower section if you can. they usually just need to be lifted up about an inch or so and pulled out. However some have covers that snap in place. After you remove cover locate gas valve. It should have a control knob on top with markings for on, off, and pilot. Set control to pilot. Follow lines from gas valve to burner compartment, one goes to main burner one ,small copper colored line is the thermocouple, other line is the pilot. Turn thermostat down as far as it will go. Make sure gas supply valve in line to heater is on and then depress pilot control , when you have pilot control depressed have a match or other small flame source close to pilot assembly. If it lights then hold down on pilot control for a couple of mins. Slowly release pilot control and if it stays lit turn gas control to on. Turn thermostat up to call for heat and burner should light. If pilot doesn't stay lit when you release pilot control then try again holding pilot down longer. If it still won't stay lit then thermocouple will need replace. Good luck. Thanks

If you have a volt ohm meter take the two leads off the gas valve and ohm out the connection should have resistance for the coil. You said you have 12 volts from the thermostat white and red in the heating mode you should have minimum 26 volts. If you want to check the transformer should have 28 volts. Almost sounding like the transformer is getting weak. You can get parts for a 20 year old unit at any HVAC parts house. Try Washer Specialties here in Wichita Kansas they are on the web. Lowes even carries Transformers. Has to be rated 120 volt primary side secondary side 24 volts and 40 VAC.
