Approx 70's Rinnai Gas Heater broken fan

Hi i have an old gas heater that i suspect is the fan that has gone. AIt was just working last winter i cleaned and oiled it but now after an extra month or two it died. Just as it was getting warmer. (Thank God)

I would like to know the price of replacing the fan please. Is it worth my while. I rang one repair place and they told me parts and labour up to $400.00 I don't want to pay this as i think the heater would be better replaced but that is also alot of money.

Please help me.

E:01 fault on a rinnai energysaver 403FT

Rinnai 403FT sounds like a fairly old heater (probably about 15 years old???).
There is no E:01 in the instruction manual but a E:07 which is overheating. Could it be this number instead? If so it could be caused by too much dust inside (or the fan not working anymore, if that's the case... sorry but good luck to find the part...)

With gas heaters, the other basic question you should ask yourself is "when was the last time I serviced my heater??". It is recommended to get them serviced every 1 or 2 years.
It consist in having a licensed gas fitter to open it and clean/test everything inside the heater (yes, like your car).

9 out of 10 problems with a gas heater are solved with a simple service, I would suggest you get a gas fitter to check it out!

We have a Rinnai REH-15F-2A natural gas heater (approx 15 yrs old). it has just started going out, it doesn't leak gas. is this something repairable or beyond repair? thanks tameka

Tameka, what you described sounds like the Thermocouple or Thermopile is failing. If your heater is a Flue-less heater, the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) which is part of the Pilot assembly, may simply need cleaning. Any of the causes I listed are repairable and would require a service technician to do it.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

We get a horrible smell occasionally with our Rinnai Avenger 25 nat.gas heater when alight. The filters are clean & was serivced last winter. It was making the smell at times even after the service. It...

From what you have described, it sounds like a case of delayed ignition or as the Owner's Manual calls it a "Combustion Control Fault"or "Incomplete Combustion". This can be caused by several things: A change in the gas pressure; dirty or clogged burner, electronic fault in the combustion controls.

Despite having it cleaned an services last Winter, 12 months have elapsed, with the unit just sitting and collecting dust and spiders. Portable Heating units should be serviced annually. Usually in the early Fall, before firing it up for the heating season.

Hope this helped you ... Cheers.

I have a Rinnai Avenger 25 gas heater. We turned power and gas off after last winter, now we cannot get it to light. It will light for roughly 10 secs and then goes out. There are no numbers set in timer.

Since the gas has been OFF since last Winter, I suspect that there is air in the gas line that needs to be purged. In addition, if it has not been cleaned and serviced annually, the pilot and the burners need to be cleaned. Spiders & other insects love to build nest in them while they are off. Not to mention, accumulated dust. Unplug the unit before attempting any service work.

Purging and cleaning should solve your problem.

The obvious question is are you sure you have not run out of gas or has an isolation tap been turned off by mistake. Do you have anything else on gas that is still working ok. Check this one first and I am willing to keep an eye out if you re-post the fault.

I have a trouble code 11 on my Rinnai model 2532 water heater which indicates no ignition. I checked for gas supply by turning the furnace on which is approx. 1 ft. away, it works. The water heater is...

11 is a ignition failure code. Could be alot of things, I suggest calling a tech who has repaired these before. Pull the front cover off and have a helper turn on a hot water faucet. Look thru the viewing window to see if the unit is firing then going out. If not, clean out the water filter on the inlet side of the plumbing. You will need to turn off the water supply prior to cleaning it. If the unit fires but shuts off seconds after ignition, you may have a dirty or bad sensor. Call a proffessional at this point. Sorry

Rinnai Tankless Water Heater

Question, is there any other equipment that uses propane? You indicate that the problem started after a delivery of propane after running out. If so, I suspect a blockage in either the gas train or the rinnai itself. If tou have the temperature control that regulates the water temperature, you can recall error codes to pinpoint the issue. They are optional equipment so if you can wire one in or ask your propane gas supplier if their service department has one, it will aide in the diagnosis.
