there is one way to make this work. I feel certain that the existing system is a low pressure system. The gas company could install a higher pressure meter, and with the proper regulators this would work. We had the same situation in an airport hanger, all the heaters firing at the same time would not allow any of them to operate correctly. It turned out that the gas company had installed a low pressure regulator at the meter. After this was changed to a high pressure, and the individual heater regulators replaced, it worked perfectly

Yes it is a good regulator it to reduces the chance of
blockage by freezing rain or sleet when properly installed with the
vent pointing down.
Proper installation requires the vent
to be pointed down in a vertical position. Additional protection
may be required if road splatter is a problem.

Green light flashes on the furnace. Checked pressure switch and it is not the issue. It is vented to outside 28 ft by PVC. Bypassed pressure switch and it still will not fire. New furnace. any su


you are dangerous, the pressure switch has to be open to start and close on call for heat. the flue needs to climb .25" per foot to let water back into drain and vent properly, 30 ft is far so it may need to be enlarged if the btu is already maxed for the size of the pvc. read install manual .

Car cranks but won't start


It could be the timing or the fuel pressure regulator.
These are main symptoms of fuel pressure regulator failure:
Fuel Pressure Regulator Failure Symptoms:
  • Engine runs rough
  • Engine stumbles or sputters
  • Engine runs very rich - black smoke from the exhaust
  • Engine will not start
  • Engine starts but stalls shortly after start up
  • Noisy fuel pump
  • Noticeable decrease in fuel mileage
If your car is showing any of the above symptoms, try testing for a fuel pressure regulator problem. Without question, one of the best checks for a faulty FPR is to check the fuel pressure at the rail. If you have access to a 0-100 psi fuel pressure gauge , check the fuel pressure at the rail using FUEL-01. Normally a faulty fuel pressure regulator will result in a very high fuel pressure. So, if your fuel pressure is well above the specs provided in FUEL-01, you probably have a bad FPR.

One of the most common failure modes for the FPR is to fail closed to the point that fuel rail pressure is extremely high. The high differential pressure across the injectors causes them to draw excessive current. The excessive current is seen by the injector drivers which subsequently shutdown. If you have a condition where the car will not start or starts and almost immediately dies, try disconnecting the wire for one injector. Attempt to start the engine. If it starts and continues to run, the fuel pressure regulator is likely bad. Bear in mind that running on only three cylinders, the car will run very rough. By disconnecting one injector, it reduces the current enough to keep the injector drivers from shutting down.

Gas vale not working


Before the gas valve is energized, the inducer draft motor has to develop enough negative pressure to close the pressure switch and the pilot has to be proven first before the gas valve can be energized. This is dangerous stuff, not dyi, call a qualified tech.

Our Rinnai Infinity HWS is displaying error message 12 and no hot water is available


Hi,

The following could cause this. I would call a licensed plumber to fix this issue.

Check that the gas is turned on at the water heater and gas meter. Check for obstructions in

the flue outlet.

Ensure gas line, meter, and/or regulator is sized properly.

Ensure gas type and pressure is correct.

Bleed all air from gas lines.

Ensure proper Rinnai venting material was installed.

Ensure condensation collar was installed properly.

Ensure vent length is within limits.

Verify dip switches are set properly.

Ensure appliance is properly grounded.

Disconnect keypad.

Disconnect EZConnect™ or MSA controls to isolate the problem.

Check power supply for loose connections.

Check power supply for proper voltage and voltage drops.

Ensure flame rod wire is connected.

Check flame rod for carbon build-up.

Disconnect and reconnect all wiring harnesses on unit and PC board.

Check for DC shorts at components.

Check gas solenoid valves for open or short circuits.

Remove burner plate and inspect burner surface for condensation or debris.


The above is what #12 indicates.


No way to fix it without further hands on investigation. I seriously recommend you call a licensed plumber.


Let me know,if needed further assistance.


Hope i helped you.


Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

These are the possible issues with the unit, based on the code list and description

Check that the gas is turned on at the water heater and gas meter. Check for obstructions in the flue outlet.
Ensure gas line, meter, and/or regulator is sized properly.
Ensure gas type and pressure is correct.
Bleed all air from gas lines.

Check power supply for proper voltage and voltage drops.
Ensure flame rod wire is connected.
Check flame rod for carbon build-up.
Disconnect and re-connect all wiring harnesses on unit and PC board.
Check for DC shorts at components.
Check gas solenoid valves for open or short circuits.
Remove burner plate and inspect burner surface for condensation or debris.

Clean inlet water supply filter.
On new installations ensure hot and cold water lines are not reversed.
Check for bleed over. Isolate unit from building by turning off hot water line to building.
Isolate the circulating system if present. Open your pressure relief valve; if unit fires, there is bleed over in your plumbing.
Ensure you have at least the minimum flow rate required to fire unit.
Ensure turbine spins freely.
Measure the resistance of the water flow control sensor.
Check for DC shorts at components

When my Rinnai ES22 tries to start it makes a fluttering noise and then blinks 11


The fluttering noise you are hearing is an improper gas air mixture. Make sure the vent termination is clear of any debris. You could have improper gas pressure due to a frozen regulator. If the issue does not clear, contact your gas company.

Hello thats ridiculous.Go to any hardware store and ask for 1/4" bird screen and tin snips.Cut out a insert a little bit larger then you need and push it in the pipe (concave).or cover the entire termination outside.It will not affect operation at all,but another mouse will.

EMPIRE MDL 215 VENTID NOT HOT ENOUGH


Sal,
the gas pressure test should be done. Propane should have an outlet(heater side of the regulator)of 7 inches of water column. the inlet side has to be higher than that to supply it the proper pressure. Also the heater should have been converted to LP with proper orfices and springs

Installing a R232-HBF REGULATOR -What's up with this screen/vent deal? Will mosture affect it?- thank's


Most all regulators require a differential in pressure to work. To get a differential, you need to have gas pressure on one side of the diaphragm and atmosphere pressure on the other side. If you have high moisture, you can either effect the differential pressure, cause a freezing condition in the regulator in cooler weather or subject the regulator to premature failure due to corrosion. You did not explain if this is going to be used in a high moisture area or not. Can the regulator be vented to a low moisture area?
