Question about Rinnai RHFE-556FAIII 21,500 BTU Ductless Energy Saver Heater - LP(Propane) Gas
Hi. I have a Rinnai Energy saver 551f heater that won't stay on. I've pulled the back off and vaccumed out all the dust. I turn the knob to on and wait the 10 secs and the gas lights and then it turns itself off again. It didn't come with instructions when I moved in. Please help
You could have something as simple as an air hose off, or a piece of carbon on the flame sensor. Your problem could also be a gas valve , which is much more complicated. If you are handy with tools you could be able fix either quickly. If you’re not good with tools you will need to get some help. Either way you have to have some back ground info on your heater. Get in touch with Rinnai and get a service manual for your unit. They cost around $15. If you have to call a service guy, use the Rinnai web site to find an authorized service person. Don’t just let your fingers do the walking and get some guy who has no idea what a Rinnai is. You’re only asking for trouble there. Your unit is a little older so don’t be surprised if parts are hard to find.
