Hi This is happening to us and I called Rinnai... they suggested that if anyone either in our apartment or an ajoining one has painted walls or varnished a floor that the convection heater picks up the smell and the only way to get rid of it is to burn it off by running the heater for several hours in a well ventalated room...

I am going to try it tomorrow.

SOURCE: my rinnai 556fa propane heater

I had the identical trouble with my Rinnai 431F just now & read the unanswered posts.

I checked my intake & exhaust & found them connected & intact then went out to check the exterior vent assembly. The "bell" or dome was almost entirely clogged with ice.

I suspect the 60 - 76 lights flashing means insufficient combustion air.

Anyway, I took a hair dryer to it & in 10 minutes it was working as well as ever.

This won't help you October posters but if anyone else has this problem in the future I would start with the outside vent assembly. Get a good look right up inside because I would have missed this ice if I didn't get up close with a flashlight.

Here's a good source for manuals too...

SOURCE: Rinnai gas heater loud noise on ignition

It may be, Rinnai suggests a maximum length of about 13 equivalent feet of venting including elbows. Add 6 feet for every 90 degree elbow. If the vent is longer than this it is taxing the combustion fan motor and it will start giving you error codes and will not ignite. Remove the trim panel from behind the heater and find the flexable air intake pipe. Temporally remove it from a fitting and test the unit a few times to see if the unit starts quieter. This procedure will be taking room air into the heater for combustion and circumventing the direct vent feature of the heater, not a fix. Have you had the gas pressure tested? It gould be that! You may wish to consider relocating the heater and fire your installation contractor for putting you in this predicament, not Rinnai.

SOURCE: Hi We have a second

This sounds like a faulty flame failure device. Fairly old heater this one. I have a manual on PDF but I don't think it will help you fix it.
Just found a link to users manual

http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/5c252c12-7d1c-42c8-8b7c-dabe16fa65ca.pdf

Have a look but best advice is get someone to have alook at it who knows the unit and can get spares as I'm pretty certain your going to have to fork out a few dollars on this one.

Hi my Rinnai spectrum 28 gas heater only burns on high heat settings if i change it to anything lower it blows out what does this mean?


If this is occurring on windy days, a back draft in the flue termination is blowing the pilot out. When this happens ,everything shuts down, as it should. If it occurs under all weather conditions, the air filter may need cleaning. Also, be sure that there are no obstructions blocking the air louvers on the front of the heater.

To assist you further, I have included a link to the owner's Manual for your model, in case you have misplaced yours. You may download and print this manual if you like.

The heater shuts off. when i hear water gurgling from the exhaust pipe. My tech has emptied at least a cup of water. the exhaust pipe has been extended 3' because of the deep snow here. there is a downward...


if it has twin flu with exhaust and air intake there is a drain point at point where flu joins onto the heater, and if flu was downhill it wouldn't be retaining water in it as it would be draining out as water will find the quick and easy way out but i'm pretty sure that there is a drain point on flu where it joins to heater, so it also may be installed incorrectly most of the time these heaters get installed without following the book, we sell rinnai and other gas heaters and its rare that the installer of heater follows instructions of manual as we have found out with call outs so i would be checking installation and looking for a drain point as flu shouldn't have water in it if running downhill (all drains are run with a down hill slope and clear themselves of water unless drain blocked or has airlock and i don't think you would have either) have you rang and spoke to rinnai also it may help and they may have a qualified service agent near by!

Water in the exhaust vent pipe, and is shutting off the heater


there is drain point on flu where joins onto heater also if flu angled slightly downhill will drain access water from it, because they are efficient heaters the condensate in flu which needs to be drained away and if water in flu the heater will shut down sounds like it may be installed incorrect due to not reading installation instructions all gas heaters are different and installers just expect to install the same as the last it doesn't work like that they need to follow instruction of book, i would call rinnai and if possible get their service agent to look at heater for you and charge installer

it can go up but is designed to go up wall cavity and unit i supposed to sit with it's back against wall to adapt to a flu that is already there would mean you would have to sit out into room a little bit which could look funny, the only way i can think to do this and look good would be to make a false wall for flu so upou don't see it and it wouldn't have to be built to far into room only far enough to hide flu i would stringly recomend someone to come have a look at it for you as it is acchievable but to make it look half descent if not immaculate job would be to get a specialist on fluing to look for you and advise on options to get it to go to old flu outlet may be something you can do but i don't think it would be a good idea as you would have to either bring heater far enough forward to go straight up it as wood heater flu would have been a fair distance of wall for clearance's, or the other way would be to bring flu behind heater then elbow out to get over to old flu exit, so get someone to look at it for you as you want to also put into a place where it will heat efficiently too!

Bit concerned on giving advice on this one other than take it to GOOD servicemen and get it checked out properly. Cleaninbg the filters is Ok, the large one slides out to the top, the smaller one unclips, push in the two tags (closest to the centre of the heater) and it sort of hinges off from the other side of the filter. Give these a good clean. It might just smell because you have disturbed smaller dust particles that are being burnt. Mums know best, if you are worried, get it looked at and don't use it!
