Question about Rinnai RHFE-1004FA 38,400 BTU Energy Saver Ductless Heater - LP Gas

2 Answers

Rennai 551 FA-P Never fully shuts off

When the room temperature has been reached the flame lever reduces to low but never shuts completely off.   When I increase the temperature setting the flame increases and the unit sends out more heat.

Hebert,

Is there a chance there is a draft around the room temp probe? It is down low on the right side of the heater. If there is a draft the room sensor is fooled and keeps running the unit. You should be able to prove the room sensor by putting your hand over it after the stove has been running for a while. This should shut the stove down. If not there is a problem with the room sensor.

Does this model shut off automatically when the desired room temperature is reached or does it function on a low medium high type of thermostat that continuously runs? IR 3 0 p m d g - 1


if it is an inverter type air conditioner ( make not indicated) the unit runs continually but the compressor delivery is reduced thereby reducing the load on the motor
as the room warms up again the compressor starts to pump more gas to keep the room at the desired temp setting
older types shut the compressor down and restarted when the high temp was reached

Why does the heater turn off?


If it's thermostatically controlled, if shuts off the burner when it reaches the set temperature. Is the pilot flame going out too? These heaters require a certain amount of fresh air to operate properly. If the oxygen level gets too low, it is designed to shut off completely for your safety.

We installed a mr. heather IR30LPT, set the fan to auto and the control to #1, however, the unit runs continuously without shutting off. The room is less that 1000 sq. feet. Can you tell me why the unit is...


THERMOSTAT CONTROL OPERATION
FOR IR20LPT / IR30LPT: The thermostatic control used
simply turns on and off the burner.
FOR BF20LPT / BF30LPT: The thermostatic control
used modulates the flame size as the temperature gets
closer to set point, then it turns off the burner upon
reaching temperature.
The burner will cycle back on when room temperature
drops below the set temperature. The control knob can
be set to any heat level between 1 and 5. Selecting the
HI setting will cause the burner to remain on.
Note: The thermostat sensing bulb measures the
temperature of air near the heater cabinet. This
may not always agree with room temperature
(depending on housing construction, insulation
location, room size, open air temperature, etc.).
Frequent use of your heater will let you determine
your own comfort levels.
The LED temperature indicator measures approximate
room temperature around the heater.
Note: The LED temperature indicator DOES NOToperate with or control the thermostat setting of the
heater.
IF YOUR UNIT IS NOT TURNING OFF IN POSITION 1 BUT THE TEMPERATURE AROUND IT IS HIGH THAN THERMOSTAT IS STUCK AND YOU HAVE TO CHANGE IT OR VISIT SERVICE.
1-5 knob has no info what is the parameters of temperature sorry!

Hi, sounds like the MGV is not shutting off all of the way/ That would be the only reason gas would continue to flow, even on a small scale. If this keeps up, change that valve!! Do not take it apart, never! Good luck,

Utika boiler does not stay on


What is the fuel you heat the boiler with?-- Oil or Gas?

Does the flame ignite initially, and then sputter out- or positively SHUT off, like a valve is closing?

Is there a High temperature (or Pressure) limit being reached, to shut it off?-- or other controls, like: Low Water, Hi Temperature plenum switch? --
can you do some trouble shooting, and get back with us, so we can help you better?

I have replaced the thermacouple on my pitco fryer but the reset button keeps kicking out,shutting off the pilot.\r\n can you help me? thank you in advance.


If the reset button trips on low oil temperature, check and make sure that its sensing bulb located inside the fry tank does not touches the fire tube. This device is called the hi limit, it is the unit's safety device designed to shut the pilot flame when oil temperature reaches 450F.

Hello, I can assist you.

If the unit is supposed to turn off and it doesn't, it will be necessary to check several things.


  • First, is the unit cooling properly? See the section entitled "The air is cool but doesn't seem cold enough."

  • Next, is the temperature of the room adequately cool? If the room temperature is cold enough try setting the thermostat to a higher temperature. If the unit then seems to work properly leave the thermostat set to the higher temperature.

  • If the unit is cooling properly when it is turned on and the room is not cool enough the problem is probably that the unit is trying to cool an area that is too large for its capacity. Use the following chart to find the appropriate size air conditioner to use:

AREA TO BE COOLED / CAPACITY (BTU/HR)

100 to 150 square feet = 5,000

150 to 250 square feet = 6,000

250 to 300 square feet = 7,000

300 to 350 square feet = 8,000

350 to 400 square feet = 9,000

400 to 450 square feet = 10,000

450 to 550 square feet = 12,000

550 to 700 square feet = 14,000

700 to 1000 square feet = 18,000

If the room is heavily shaded, reduce needed capacity by 10%

If the room receives a lot of direct sun, increase needed capacity by 10%

Add 600 Btu/Hr for each person in the room if there are more than two people

If the unit is for a kitchen, increase the capacity by 4,000-6,000 Btu/Hr.

If the room size is too big for the air conditioner you have two possible choices. Either decrease the room size by shutting some doors or partitioning off an area of the room. Or, increase the BTU of the air conditioner for that room by installing a different air conditioner with a higher BTU rating.
