Question about Rinnai RER-55AS 55-Cup Rice Cooker

1 Answer

Igniotion problem I've got an old one.. bought it about 7 years ago.. and its been in regular use. Besides getting old, its now giving me heartaches getting it started. This issue 'may' have been caused by possible exposure to rain... as my wife was in charge of the final breakdown of a market we do during summer, and it poured on the last day. She insists on carrying it to the truck in pieces, so it may have had the burner unit exposed to torrential downpours... (women... sheehs). In any event, in order to get it to finally 'ignite' and keep the burner and pilot going, I must first over-clik about 20 times until the gas rises to the starter spark and I get a huge explosion... I have to 'explode' it about 4 times before it will finally 'hook'... and the burner and pilot run fine after that. So my question is... and i'm not a technician by any means... what might the cure be? Thanks very much in advance, Hank in Longview oh, my model number is RER-55AS-P

A kind lady gave me a new Toastmaster bread machine 4 or 5 years ago, but my life was such that I thanked her, but said I didn't have time to devote to it. A year ago, I took it out and used it twice...

If you chose the "dough" program it won't get hot at all. If you chose the other programs and it never got hot then you do have a problem. Please advise which program you chose and we'll go from there.

Fred is 3 years older than his sister mary, in 7 years she will be six-sevenths of his age. how old are they?

Fred = Mary +3
7*mary = 6/7 *Fred
substitute fred =mary + 3
7m = 6/7 * (mary + 3) 7m = 6/7*m + 6/7*3 7m - 6/7*m = 6/7*3 m(7-6/7)= 6/7*3
m = (6/7*3) / (7-6/7) m=0.419 years old
substitue m into fred = mary+3 Fred = 3.419 Years old

I have a Minolta Di151 copier-printer that I use for printing from my desktop & photocopying. I recently bought a new computer - a Dell Optiplex 380, with Windows 7, and cannot get the Minolta to...

Unfortunately, you are out of luck on Windows 7 or even Vista for that matter as Minolta had discontinued support of that machine years ago. The Di151 is now over 10 years old and that makes getting support or parts much more difficult. I have sold and service Minoltas since 1983 so I am very familiar with your machine as well as your situation. I wish there were better news I could give you.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
