SOURCE: Rinnai 556F stuck on Low and will not produce heat

The Low code indicates that the heater did not start because of lack of gas or that the flame rod did not sense enough heat. Make sure all gas valves are on and if you use propane gas, that it has gas in the tank.

Assuming all gas is on, you will need to remove the front cover by first pulling off the very bottom trim piece. This is located below the louvers and by grasping both left and right sides of this trim, pull toward you. It is just held in place by little clips. Now taking a very new #2 Philips head screwdriver, remove 2 screws found on the extreme left louvered section of the front. Then 2 more on the extreme right. Two more near the center of the louvers. Now I think there are two more holding the bottom in. Gently move back and forth the front panel starting at the bottom and work out the clips at the top just below the instrument area. Be careful to not break any of the clips at the top. With the front off, at about the 5 o'clock position you will see a very small round hole with glass over it. Start the heater and look to see if it ignites and stays on for a second or two. If it does but goes out very quickly, you may have a corroded flame sensor. The flame sensor is located by looking into the small hole and up to the 11 o'clock position. All it is is a probe that sticks down. The only way to get to it is by removing the small window section of the heater and use a wire brush used to clean a gun and brush it. Or very gently take a thin but long regular screwdriver and scrape off the probe. Be careful not to damage the fragile white gasket when taking off the sight port.

If the heater never started, you have a restriction in the gas train. Typically I find that spiders make a nest inside the gas burner because the bugs they eat likes the gas smell. The only way to get to their web is to remove the burner from the unit and clean it. This is not an easy part to remove and suggest you call a technician.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Rinnai wall heater won't lite.

You may need to take the pilot assembly apart and clean the pilot orifice. If the pilot does not stay lite you may need a new thermocouple. Good Luck.

I purchased a Rinnai Panel Heater EPH10DTW today from the GoodGuys. There was no instruction Book or Warranty Papers in the box Could I get an instruction off the Internet


Unfortunately, the model number you listed for the Rinnai Infrared heater, does not match any of the Rinnai heater models.Or it is a discontinued model. Check the Manufacturer's Data Plate on the side or rear of the unit for the exact model number and get back to me.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Need pilot light assembly for Rinnai gas heater model #REH-25-P


Unfortunately, Rinnai only sells repair parts through their authorized dealers. Contact the dealer you purchased it from. If you are not the original owner of the home/heater, you can go to Rinnai's website and search for a dealer near you. http://www.rinnai.us/direct-vent-wall-furnaces/

Rinnai direct vent heater RHFE 556WTA goes off showing code 99 which means flue block we have checked flue terminal and still have same problem. I understand their is a recall on some please let us know...


Remove the top panel closest to the wall after you remove filter. Check all the connections for exhaust and air intake. You can remove the air intake pipe (looks like a smaller diameter vacuum cleaner hose but Gray in color) and run the unit with it off of the vent. If unit starts and stays on, the inducer blower is getting weak and will need to be replaced. There is also two small hoses (clear and blue) that may have come off the vent or even cracked or chewed by a mouse. Inspect them for cracks or damage. You may have to take off the right side panel closest to the wall to get to the hoses. Next, remove the many screws that hold the front panel on the heater. Take off the front cover and check to make sure all the hoses are connected and that the inducer fan runs. You can even take a shop vacuum and put it over the center hole on the vent to make sure something is not lodged inside where you can't see it.

Yes there is a recall for a gasket that deteriorates over time. It is located at the view port of the flame. Contact Rinnai at (US) 8006219419 for details.

Hope this helps.

I have a Rinnai model 2532 Tankless Water heater. When the Bath water is turned on (which is the largest water flow for the water heater)it makes a loud vibrating sound that can be heard through the entire...


We had the same problem - the hot water would only be hot for 3 -5 minutes and shut off, then we had to turn the water off, wait a few minutes, and do it again. VERY FRUSTRATING.

Soution: The Rinnai serviceman showed me the heat-exchanger blower/fan: It was clogged with dust and moths.

Another clue: Our Rinnai was extremely noisy when the heat came on. After the fan was cleaned and replaced, it is nearly silent.

If you are reasonably mechanically inclined:
TURN THE BREAKER / POWER OFF to the unit.

The blower-fan is located in the lower central area of the unit (at least on our unit). If you draw imaginary north-south, east-west lines through the center of the unit, the fan is in the lower-left quadrant. There is a spring clamp securing the black rubber accordian-like tube to the fan. There are two screws that secure the fan to the unit. there are two plugs that connect to the fan, as well as a third air-flow sensor that should be removed. then you can look at the fan unit, as well as the grill on the underside of the heat-exchanger that should be cleaned.

My thought was to go out and get a simple bug-screen, and place it over the air-input outlet vent going outside, but the repair guy said that although it may sound good, if that screen ever gets clogged, or reduces airflow to the Rinnai, then the unit will work harder, or even shut off, giving the same problem. Also - the Rinnai pipe going outside is a pipe within a pipe - so its both inlet and outlet air.

Rinnai Energysaver 1001F - Turn on, ignites, blows + powers off


Try disconnecting the unit and thoroughly cleaning the dual walled intake and vent pipe that goes through the wall. Use a small brush to make sure the passages are free from any obstructions. These units have safety mechanisms that are very sensitive and sometimes will shut off when something as seemingly insignificant as a leaf or spider web creates a slight blockage. A yearly inspection and clean out are necessary.
