    We have a Rinnai RHFE1001FA that was installed in 1996, it was converted to propane. Have not had any trouble until now. It has shut completely down and will not start. No lights on so obviously no electricity to it. We have ordered a new starter for it that we have not received yet, but are concerned that may not even be the problem. Had a big power hit here last week. It worked after that for a few days, could the power hit have done something? We do not have anyone in our rural area that works on these stoves.

I would first contact Rinnai, parts should be available also I would check the room temperature thermistor normally situated at the bottom rear left hand corner

In Vermont I can get 200-400 for this unit. Make sure you include the vent kit that came with it. The new will not fit the old one anyway.

Can you replace the slider thermostat in this unit with a digital stat? Or Can an wall stat be used? Model: RHFE 1001FA/VA-2


The model you have does not have a conventional thermostat but a temperature probe located at the right hand side bottem in the back. The slider acts like a dimmer switch and communicates with the computer board to cycle on or off.

Sounds like a bad gas solenoid. They are not cheap to replace because there are three of them. I would check into replacing it.

Rinnai RHFE-1001FA


I can suggest a around-about solution. I also have the same model installed around the same time. I have the outlet that it is connected to controlled by an electric heat thermostat on a wall at the oposite side of the room. I keep the heater on high at all times and the thermostat controls the electricity to the outlet. It's worked great for the 13 years it's been installed.
