Question about Rinnai RHFE-1004FA 38,400 BTU Energy Saver Ductless Heater - LP Gas
I recently purchased a condo and have a Rinnai 1001FA from '93. I noticed last week that the green light was out and the unit shut down. The tech came out and said it might be a fluke - if not a fluke, then it could be the gas valves. He said that there have been many issues with this model and that problem. Normally, though, the unit won't restart. I've had this happen a few more times, so it's not a fluke, but the unit still starts back up. Any thoughts? The valves are expensive so it would make more sense to replace.
I have rebuilt many RHFE-551FA and RHFE-1001FA control circuit boards. This usually fixes problems related to these units shutting down by themselves and/or not starting. If you would like more information about rates, turn around time, etc, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

You can remove the flex pipe on the back of the heater from the flue pipe. Put some foil over the hole. Now you will be using room air for combustion. Once the extreme cold goes away put the flex hose back on the flue. Rinnai's run very close to condensation most of the time. When it's very cold out you are now at the condensation temp of the exhaust and get a drip. You should watch the exhaust several time each day when it's real cold.
