Hello, that could be two problems, first could be the gas sensor that cuts the power when there is a leek , second could be the thermostat faulty.
Thanks

SOURCE: Rinnai 1004 - Temp on thermostat reads 10 deg cooler than actual, keeps running

Behind the unit near the floor level, is a yellow wire with a black bulb at the end. This is the actual sensor for returning air. If there is cool air infiltrating the area where it is located, it will keep the unit running until the return air reaches temperature. You could also have a bad sensor but highly unlikely. Make sure there is no air infiltration influencing the sensor. Also, you can unclip the sensor and pull out a few more inches of wire to locate it higher up away from the floor. Tie it up with a wire tie.

Rinnai it testing a remote thermostat but as of yet, there is no plans to offer one.

SOURCE: I have a Rinnai heating system 556F that shut off

This unit has a diagnostic error code recorder. To play back your error codes, with the unit off, push the up arrow, down arrow and economy button all at the same time and hold for 3 seconds. Record each number that lights up. In your owners manual or on rinnai.us there is a error code guide that may help. Or post the error codes on Fixya and I can give you some pointers.

SOURCE: Our Rinnai Energysaver 1001FT Heater starts and

Heaters are a bit tricky to deal with as fixing them are better left for experts. When the heater shuts down on its own it usually is as a result of over heating in the heaters system. If the unit in the heater which is meant to regulate the unit temperature happens to be faulty the guage records a higher temperature than is in the unit and this triggers a close down of the unit. Get an expert to service it check the termostat and also check the radiator for leakages. Feel free to request further assistance.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I rent and have a Rinnai Energy saver 556F. I have it at 64 and the light blinks for 68. I would like to know why. It is 56 out side now thank you


Shadow,

The 68 you see is an error code. It means you have had an over heat situation. You should be able to clean the filter and fan area and restart. Turn the heater off and on again, that should reset everything and you should be good.

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

Rinnai 556F Not Exactly and "Energy Saver"...


Raise the thermistor. It is a black rubber probe located on the back of the heater close to the coldest spot in your home, the floor. Raise it a few inches. To do this you will need to unhook it from its holder and open the front of the heater to unravel the extra length of yellow wire.

I have a Rinnai Energysaver 556F


The heater will have some error codes stored in it. To retrieve them get an assistant to write down the codes as you see them. They come quickly. OK to get the codes, push down on the Economy button and the up arrow and down arrow at the same time. Hold for three seconds. It will take three fingers to do this. Once you get the error codes, look in your owners manual to diagnose.

Rinnai EnergySaver 556F Heater flashes


I'm picking up a faint propane scent when the heater is completely turned off. When I turn the heater on it lights fine so I don't suspect it's the pilot light. Is this an issue with the installation of the fuel line, or could it still be the pilot? Any ideas on troubleshooting the source?
