SOURCE: Rinnai 1004 - Temp on thermostat reads 10 deg cooler than actual, keeps running

Behind the unit near the floor level, is a yellow wire with a black bulb at the end. This is the actual sensor for returning air. If there is cool air infiltrating the area where it is located, it will keep the unit running until the return air reaches temperature. You could also have a bad sensor but highly unlikely. Make sure there is no air infiltration influencing the sensor. Also, you can unclip the sensor and pull out a few more inches of wire to locate it higher up away from the floor. Tie it up with a wire tie.

Rinnai it testing a remote thermostat but as of yet, there is no plans to offer one.

SOURCE: room temp and unit temp are way different what can

The Rinnai's temperature probe is located very low (about 2" off the floor} and is telling you what temperature the floor is. There are two things you can do. Remove the front cover and look for a yellow wire wrapped up with a black plastic tie. Remove it from the tie and feed out some extra wire to the back of the heater. Next take off the right side trim panel closest to the wall. You will find a yellow wire with a black rubber tip clipped into a black plastic holder. Un-secure the probe and relocate it higher up in the back of the heater. Do not place it near the cloth and metal vent pipe. It is OK to place it near the corrugated gray plastic pipe. This will give the probe a better sample of the room air. The second way is to insulate the wall behind the heater so that the probe will not be effected by cold air infiltrating from the wall. If this does not help the situation, replace the probe called a thermistor. I can send you one for $25.00 if you find you need one. Contact me at the_rinnai-guy@hotmail.com.

You may have a bad circuit board. Depending upon the age of the heater it may still be under warranty. Contact Rinnai (in US) 800-621-9419 with your serial number and installation date. Ask if they can offer a solution. Good Luck!

Hold the lock button down for approximately one second to switch between locked and unlock. If it is locked when you turn it on you will need to do this first

My 606a rinnai heater flashes 12


According to the Rinnai manual which is here:
https://www.rinnai.us/documentation/downloads/RC-606-48x05(00)_owners_manual_RCE-606TRAII_vent_free.pdf

It looks like that is a "flame failure". They suggest ventilating the room and turning the heater off and on again, I think this might mean the heater was eating all of the oxygen in your room.

Maybe cracking a window a small bit?

Problem is with my Rinnai propane gas heater in my LIVING ROOM, not car. Please see previous question. Thanks.


Turn it off. Check connections and hoses with very soapy water for leaks (it will bubble)

If you can't find it... I would either return it if possible... or go take it to a propane professional for testing.

Rinnai 1004 heats to a temp 4 degrees higher than set temp, adjustment?


You can adjust the position of the room air sensor found on the back of the unit between the heater and the wall. It is a black rubber bulb with yellow wires. There is a few inches of extra wire you can extend higher to get a more accurate reading of room air. While you are back there, check for drafts that will give you false readings.
