Question about EdgeStar Portable Air Conditioner Heater

1 Answer

Heater keeps cutting off as if it reached the set temp.

I have not had time to vent the unit outside, but my office is big enough to direct the cold air away. Becausse of this, i don't expect the heater to reach it's set temp. once it reaches about 70 deg., the exhaust stops blowing out of the back and the fan continues from the fromt, and blows cool air. Why does this happen? is my thermostat malfunctioning? Are there adjustments i can make to keep this from happening?

How do I fix the heater? The igniter will not stay on long. The heater never reaches desired temperature.


Try turning it off and unplugging it for 30 seconds. If that doesnt work, some people I know had to melt ice from their vents with a blow dryer. If not call a technician. Error codes should be in the manual. http://www.rinnai.us/customer-care/manuals-literature

My error is ee88, how low should i set the temp in my basement, i've been setting it at 54 i think it has to be atleast 56 degrees


Normally, the air temp in a basement doesn't change more than 10 degrees throughout the year (Unless, you live in an extremely cold environment). If your just trying to knock the chill off during the winter and keep pipes from freezing 55 degrees is adequate.

Have you tried running it without the fan? I know it sounds funny but it has to get hot (outside the fridge) to get cold inside. Shut fan off and see what happens. Also, keep in mind the more items you put in it that are already cold, or frozen, the faster it will cool inside the fridge. Also take a look up the back of the fridge, with outside cover off to make sure no big wasp nests or similar up there. May need to remove cover at roof and look down if you can't see too good from back of fridge vent.

'02 Escape, heater cold when outside air below freezing


This could be a few different problems. I would recommend taking it in and having the antifreeze checked to see if it is of a sufficient mix to keep it from freezing. Sometimes the antifreeze will be to thin to keep it from freezing and it will start to freeze in the heater core. If this is the case, the vehicle may not run long enough to thaw out the antifreeze in the heater core to generate heat. Another possibility is that the thermostat is stuck in an open or partially open position not allowing the engine to reach a high enough temperature to generate heat through the heater core. The last possibility is that there is a blockage in the heater core not allowing the hot antifreeze to pass through the heater core thereby reducing the amount of heat drawn off of the heater core. These are but a few of the more simple problems but any of them should be treated by a licensed mechanic.

Only blows cold air from vents even when temperature gauge set to red for hot air.


Temperature gauge should not be in the red unless you are talking about the temp control. Check hoses to heater core for a temp difference once the vehicle has reached operating temp. If a big differenced is noticed heater core may be plugged and may have to be flushed or replaced. Do the same with radiator hoses could also be a thermostat

Rinnai freestanding Royale ETR flame fire (mains gas): All of a sudden my heater cuts out when it reaches the set temperature and I cannot work out why. I have the ''Auto Off'' turned off. I cannot work...


I had the same problem with this unit and had the heater serviced which fixed the problem. The problem is caused by the pilot flame not being big enough to keep the thermocouple hot, so the heater thinks the flame is out and it turns the gas off! The thermocouple is effectively a switch that is on when hot and off when cold. The pilot flame is supposed to keep it hot, so its on and the main burner will get gas. When its off (ie cold) gas is blocked from the main burner for safety reasons! This manual is for a very similar heater: http://www.rinnaisales.co.nz/tradesmart/rinnai2/pdfs/service_info/171.pdf

You need to get at the pilot and clean it out!

I keep getting the EE12 readout though the temp is not reached


You have an over heat problem. If your heater has been in service for some time all you need to do is clean the screen on the back of the heater. It the aluminum pull out screen on the back. Look at the heater when it is running for about 6 minutes to be sure the circulating fan motor comes on.

If your unit is brand new the plastic cover on the circuit board may be laying over the over heat sensor. If this is the case you will have to remove the front and top panel and reposition the cover.

Fully warmed up; blowing hot and cold; Suzuki XL-7


Its just a vent damper plate not operating, it's like a gate which controls the flow of air,,usually they are operated by vacuum, or cables.
Service center time, unless you are handy with your own repairs.

Do you have the Economy button on? If so, and you have a large space to heat or the outside temp is very cold the unit may not be able to keep up. If this is the case the stove runs forever, trying to reduce the temp by 2 degrees every 30 minutes. This may not work for your space and outside temp.

Your ideas about the intake and exhaust are not quit right. There is a fan that pulls air from outside over the outside of the exhaust pipe (to preheat it). This fan actually pushed the combustion gasses all the way out the exhaust. The exhaust exiting should be a little hot. In very cold temps, frost can build up around the air intake, which is right around the exhaust pipe. If you see this you will need to keep it clean. It is a good idea to look at the exhaust everyday when it really cold.

Good luck,
