Are you sure there's water in it? May be on by-pass. Try opening pressure relief valve at top of tank slightly,and see if water comes out. If not, check your by-pass at back of tank for wrong position. Cold has to go in the bottom, and hot out the top. No valve open, or flow between them.

Rinnai RL94i - Produces hot water for 3 minutes, then stops


I just had this exact problem. It kept getting worse until we had no water. Our Rinnai tankless hot water heater started the same way though, with hot water for a few minutes and then would shut off with an error code 10. We just had to shut the hot water off and then back on, wait a minute or so and we had hot water back for a few minutes. Our unit would come on with a loud vibrating noise and remain until it shut off with an error code 10 (air flow fault). The solution was to remove the blower fan and blow out the squirrel cage. Ours had moths in it. We also vacuumed out the fan housing. Be careful to mark any wires you disconnect and take pictures before removal. Our unit is now almost silent when it comes on and supplies endless hot water.

I turn off the main water valve to fix a leaking problem and now the water heater does not work. What is the problem, how do I fix this?


Turn the water valve back on, shut the power off to the water heater for a few minutes and let it reset it self. Push the reset button, and try again. Hope this helps

The unit starts for a few sec then shuts down.ptg 74.


A couple of things could be happening.

1. There needs to be more water flow at the faucet, a minimum of .75 gallons per minute. Low flow and pressure balance faucets and aerators will not work well with tank-less water heaters. You need all the flow you can get.

2. The flame sensor in the main control unit is week, this is a common issue with your water heater.

Clean the unit to establish adequate water flow. Remove all faucet aerators and turn the faucets on to activate the unit. If you still get the on and off problem you need to call the company for a new flame sensor and/or control valve.

your unit is undersized or you do not have enough gas supply to run the unit properly.

have you checked the error codes on the heater?
you can do this by powering off the controler and pressing the up and down keys for a few seconds. this should take you into the diagnostics mode scroll using the up and down keys till you find the one that has the letter E on it and that will give you the last 8 error codes write them down and get back to me

Often, this is the result of a restriction of exhaust gases. This type of hot water heater must be adequately vented, (per installation specs). I found this out after taking a number of cold showers. :^( Two years later, and still counting, no more problems. :^)
