Rinnai EnergySaver 308FTR Turning off

Our heater is turning off after about five minutes. We have two timers on the heater. We have tried turning it off to reset the timer. Not sure if it is to do with this, any help would be appreciated. It's freezing! Thanks, Georgie

You can read the heater's error messages from its internal memory - that should help. See page 32 of handbook (link above). Peter

Re: Rinnai EnergySaver 308FTR Turning off

A dirty filter will cause shut-off: is the FILTER lamp alight? Vacuum clean the filter if necessary. Are you sure you've set the timers properly? What temperature is set? LH figure is the desired temperature - RH side is temp measured by thermistor inside unit. If set too low, it turns heater off. Download the 308FTR manual here: Regards - Peter

Would like a manual for the rinnai energysaver 403FT we need to set our heater up so it goes on auto and how do we regulate the temperature and set time

The model number (403FT) has either been discontinued, changed or is incorrect. However, Model # RHE309FT closely matches the heater you described and has the timer and temperature features you are wanting to preset.

You may download and print the manual from the link below for future reference.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa. Cheers

Where is the pilot light on Rinnai EnergySaver 1001F

If you smell gas in a Rinnai you have a big issue. This heater is what is called a direct vent heater with an electronic ignition so the combustion chamber is sealed and the smell of gas is an indication that you have a gas leak. Please call a professional today.

Rinnai Energysaver 1004F on indicator light is red (usally green)

If its not producing heat, yep! If it is, it indicates that there is an error code stored in memory.

Energysaver 1004FTR

Check for a blockage in the heat exchanger. Spiders love to make nests in these units. Remove the front cover and the two rectangular viewing ports on the front of the heat exchanger. Watch as the unit ignites. There are three burners you need to watch and the first one is in the center and hard to see. If there is flame but it goes out quickly, you have a blockage in the unit. Check the venting to make sure it is clear of debris.
