    Wunumpi,

    What country do you live in? I'm not sure the 308 is sold in the USA. The unit may have the same error code as the 556 FTR. If so the 11 code means missed ignition. The stove did not igniter when it was supposed to. If it has been off for a long time make sure the blower motor is turning, no blockage of air, and gas in bottle.

    Keep us posted,

Means failed ignition/no gas.
Check gas supply.

Would like a manual for the rinnai energysaver 403FT we need to set our heater up so it goes on auto and how do we regulate the temperature and set time


The model number (403FT) has either been discontinued, changed or is incorrect. However, Model # RHE309FT closely matches the heater you described and has the timer and temperature features you are wanting to preset.

You may download and print the manual from the link below for future reference.

We have a RINNAI ENERGYSAVER 1001FT, if power or gas has been turned off, it takes several attempts to restart it.


If the gas was tunred OFF, yes it would take several attempts for the pilot to light. Because, there is air in the line from the gas line shutoff valve to the heater. Once that's purged, the heater should light. The electrical power shouldn't affect it. Unless, the heater hasn't been serviced in the last year. Unfortunately, they are not maintenance free.

Rinnai energysaver 556f manual


Here is a link to the 556FTR from Australia.
They are all pretty much the same. The US site has similar info. Just google Rinnai. Open the site, go to resources tab and click downloads. The manuals are easy to locate.

Error code 11 on a Rinnai energysaver 556FTR


Rachel,

The 11 code means Missed Ignition. This is a broad error code. It just means the stove did not light when it was supposed to. I would check the fuel first to be sure the valve is on and you have gas. Next, try to start the stove with the room dark. Look into the window to confirm a sparking. This is the igniter. At the same time be sure the combustion motor is running. You should be able to hear it and feel the stove to confirm this. If the motor does not turn or the flue is blocked you will not get any gas to flow. Look outside to confirm the flue is not blocked.

Keep us posted,

Tom

My tank says I have 32 gallons left but the heater won't work (rinnai 556f). It turns on for about 15 seconds and the light on the power button turns red and starts blinking. What does this mean?


If you hold down the economy button and the up and down arrow buttons for 5 seconds the unit will start an error code display. Get a helper and yell out the numbers when they start blinking. Post the error codes and we can help you

Where is the pilot light on Rinnai EnergySaver 1001F


If you smell gas in a Rinnai you have a big issue. This heater is what is called a direct vent heater with an electronic ignition so the combustion chamber is sealed and the smell of gas is an indication that you have a gas leak. Please call a professional today.

If its not producing heat, yep! If it is, it indicates that there is an error code stored in memory.
