Question about Rinnai Heating & Cooling
When I turn on my Rinnai Convector 516 the fans start & it makes clicking noises for about 10 seconds then stops. On/Off button flashes red & 2nd light on Temperature Control scale also flashes. There's no display on this model, assume Temp Control light indicates applicable error? Cleaned filters & removed front panel to vacuum dust - want to try cleaning pilot orifice but can't figure out where it is! Its getting cold - can anyone help?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You have a dirty pilot assembly and maybe even a bad ECO switch (safety switch). I would suggest replacing the ECO and removing the pilot assembly and clean it out.

if you google your heater you can find the fault codes and print them off ,they will tell what is wrong and if you need a tech call

There are about 8 reasons why this is happening. Rater than going into each and every one, I have included a link to an Owners Manual, that under the Troubleshooting Sections (pages 12 & 13) it will provide you with the scenario and how to solve the problem. This manual may not be the exact same one as your heater, but they all work the same and have the same problems.
Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem.

No, the reason the light comes on is the filter is obstructing incoming air and the flow is not proper. What you may think is a clean filter may actually be a very clogged filter as you can not see the micro-particulates that have built up in the pores of the filter, Replace the filter and your problem will go away. This is also a safety matter as the filter will no longer clear up those particulates and will forced them through the filter into the ducting and the air. Clean or replace your filter altogether, this is your solution.
