    I temporally fixed it by disassembling the fan unit and
    positioning it better.

    I need to know where to buy the parts to replace them:

    motor, about 3 inches x 3 x 3
    very small fan, with blades, diameter = 3 inches
    inside fan, cylindrical, about 5 inches in diameter,
    2 inches deep. Looks like a hamster treadmill
    This is not a water heater.
    It is a central heater-air-conditioner

That may be a 24V Tstat and there would be a little transformer in the boiler that powers the Tstat. Sometimes those burn out.

Bradford White gas power vent water heater; just replaced power vent motor and fan assembly because a bearing went out. Now the new fan motor runs constantly without igniting. Is there a switch that...


Some how you have disconnected the sensor that tells the main burner that the fan is on. Its trying to light but cant. On some models there is a air pressure switch that reads the pressure inside the vent pipe itself. It will have a small hose on it and if that has cracked or was not replaced it wont light. This is how its supposed to work--- vent fan comes on,sensor confirms fan is on,hot surface ignighter starts to glow red,and main burner is opened,another sensor confirms that main burner is lit,then hot surface ignighter turns off. Hope this helps.

I have a problem with my Rinnai hot water heater giving me intermitant hot and cold. The water gets hot and I get in the shower. A few minutes later the hot water stops and I have to shut of the hot water...


We had the same problem - the hot water would only be hot for 3 -5 minutes and shut off, then we had to turn the water off, wait a few minutes, and do it again. VERY FRUSTRATING.

Solution: The Rinnai serviceman showed me the heat-exchanger blower/fan: It was clogged with dust and moths.

Another clue: Our Rinnai was extremely noisy when the heat came on. After the fan was cleaned and replaced, it is nearly silent.

If you are reasonably mechanically inclined:
TURN THE BREAKER / POWER OFF to the unit.

The blower-fan is located in the lower central area of the unit (at least on our unit). If you draw imaginary north-south, east-west lines through the center of the unit, the fan is in the lower-left quadrant. There is a spring clamp securing the black rubber accordian-like tube to the fan. There are two screws that secure the fan to the unit. there are two plugs that connect to the fan, as well as a third air-flow sensor that should be removed. then you can look at the fan unit, as well as the grill on the underside of the heat-exchanger that should be cleaned.

My thought was to go out and get a simple bug-screen, and place it over the air-input outlet vent going outside, but the repair guy said that although it may sound good, if that screen ever gets clogged, or reduces airflow to the Rinnai, then the unit will work harder, or even shut off, giving the same problem.

Furnace does not work


Is there a booster motor for the burner? I have seen these stick and make a furnace not turn on. The thermostat trips and you hear the furnace click on but nothing else happens. The booster is a small electric motor connected to a small duct. Take the booster motor loose and turn the fan by hand. Usually they will start working after you do this. Make sure furnace is shut off when you do this. Some booster motors have ports to oil them also.

Honeywell T403A1174 suddenly doesn't appear to call for heat


some times inside the boiler on the internal pipework you will see little sensors, on the central heating piping there sometimes is a thermastic sensor on side of flow pipe with a little reset button on ? i guess with the problem you said the poiler locked out and the pipe work overheated ? this is a safety feature on some boilers not, all and easerly reset via this button ?
