    I am in a mountain town in Colorado and the only heating repair guy has not called back. Brrr, HELP!

    It is an ES38 and I took the front cover off. I dont think the 5A fuse is blown and I dont see any other fuses?

    Well, I'm awesome and fixed it myself. Just in case anyone else out there has this problem and Rinnai cutomer service cannot help you, this is what I did: I unplugged the unit and turned off the gas. I took the front off and unplugged the wires going to the controls and plugged them back in. I made sure the fuse was not bad and that it was tight. I plugged it back in and turned the gas back on. FIXED. Glad I didnt waste money on a service call. I cant beleive the customer service at Rinnai did not suggest this. Hmmm.

SOURCE: NO HOT WATER N THE PILOT NOT LIGHTING UP

The thermocouple has gone bad.The thermocouple needs to be directly in the pilot flame.When the thermocouple goes out,the flame most of the time will have burned the thermocouple tip a way.If it was not for this devise,the gas would exscape,and fill the home up.This is a safety feature.

I have Rinnai natural gas room heater 516tr. It's continuously showing filter light on indication. I have clean heater but still filter light kept on. What I should do?


Turn the heater OFF and unplug it from the wall. Remove the filter and reinstall it, making sure it's fitted properly into the heater. Wait 5 minutes and plug the heater back ion and turn it ON. You may have to reset the controls back to way you had them. Completing what you just did, should have allowed the heater reset itself and function as it should. If this sort of thing continues to reoccur, contact your local Rinnai Dealer for service.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

Why does red light on "on" button stay on?


Hello,
The reason the red light on your rinnai vent free gas heater stays on simply is because it is having power on it, if it is unplugged, it will go off, or if you turn off the switch from the power outlet, then it will go off too.
As long as there is power supplied to the rinnai vent free gas heater, the power light will remain on.
Take care and good luck

Error EE 8 is showing what could be the problem???


EE 8 indicates a problem with the combustion blower. If the blower is running the problem is with the sensor. Make sure the wires for the sensor haven't come unplugged. If the sensor is bad, you will need a new blower. If it isn't running then the problem may be soot and carbon build up on the exhaust fan blade. You will have to remove the fresh air hose on the back of the heater or the rubber boot inside the heater to reach the fan blades. Use your finger or something to reach in and turn the fan blades. You may hear the sound of the carbon breaking loose. Turn it until it spins freely. Let me know if you need anything else.

Rinnai 1004 F Error Code 11


Code 11 is that the unit is trying to light but does not sense a flame after 5 seconds. Usually means you have run out of gas if you are bottled gas. Check your bottles are turned on if you are on LPG, you might need to change over manually. Have you anything else on gas?

I have a rinnai heater and it stopped working all


rinnai, toyostove and monitor heaters are basically all the same. first you have to make sure your fuel valve is open at the tank. next you have to reset the tank lockout on the sump. then set your set point higher than your room temperature. now press on. the unit will go through a 300 second purge cycle. the pot heater should turn on when the purge cycle starts. after the purge cycle the fuel pump turns on and pumps fuel into the pot. when it vaporizes the igniter lights it. when a flame is detected the flame rod says ok to keep running so the fuel pump shifts into high speed. when plenum temperature reaches a preset level the fan turns on.

Won't turn on or up


If there is a 'lock' button on the heater, push and hold till the green light goes out.
