Question about Rinnai RHFE-1004FA 38,400 BTU Energy Saver Ductless Heater - LP Gas

3 Answers

New Rinnai 1004F, don't know how it works??

I just moved into a new place with a new Rinnai 1004F installed. There is no instruction manual and the link online is old. I've turned the red gas knob to open the flow of gas to the heater, and pressed the on button. I pressed the temp. button and made it go as high as it would so it would at least come on. It starts sounding like something is happening, then it makes a buzzing noise and shuts off. An 11 is flashing on the screen and the ON light on the front of the machine is flashing red.

I have no idea what all this means, and it is cold here! Please help with a suggestion, or a let me know if there is a new link to the manual somewhere. Thank you very much....

Rinnai heaters are only gas. On the right side of the unit you will find a door that opens. Open it up and check to see if the gas is turned on. If it is, you may have to check and see if the gas meter outside is on or the propane tank (if it's LP) is on. If everything is on and you are still getting an eleven code. There must be a restriction in either the vent pipe or burner assembly.

Inspect the vent tubes, there are 2. One you can look into from the outside and the other one you can not access because it is covered by what looks like a hotel desk bell. However you can remove the vent tube from behind the heater. It will look like a vacuum hose. Remove it from the vent section and start the heater. If it starts, you have a restriction in the outter tube. If it does not, now you will have to call a gas technician to look deeper into the unit.

Good Luck!

My Rinnai 1004F giving me error code 99


This fusible link may be open. Try jumpering the two leads and see if the unit operates. If it does replace the fusible link. Do not operate the unit without the fusible link for an extended period. It is a safety device and is there for a reason. Hope this helps.

I have a Rinnai 1004F, no manual. Vent Contol Button is in open position, its winter, should vent be closed at all? Economy button, whats it for?


Not sure about Vent Control however the Economy button is like a night time set back. Over a 2 hour period it will decrease the temperature up to 6 degrees from set point. In morning, just take off economy and unit will come up to temp. Go to www.rinnai.us for on-line manual.

I have the rinnai energy saver 1004f.. Do I have to put water in it for it to work?


Absolutely not. It does help with the humidity but you will find it empty each day because air blows over the water tray when on.

Blinking 12 and I have no manual to indicate what that means.


A 12 code indicates a "Flame Failure" check that the gas valve on the right side of the unit is turned on. If you are using propane have you confirmed that the tank has fuel? You may be able to download the owners manual from the Rinnai website.If not you can contact themat 1-800 621-9419.
This is a great heater and the Rinnai people will be helpful. good luck!
