Question about Rinnai RHFE-1004FA 38,400 BTU Energy Saver Ductless Heater - LP Gas
We never had trouble w/ our heater - but now we are selling our condo & during the buyers inspection we learned our rinnai woudn't work. We checked it out, turned it on and it powers on - clicks to ignite, blows a little bit. Once it warms up or we turn it up (less than a minute or so), it powers down on it's own (lights turn off) just as it really gets going. It then fans out the heat until it cools down. Is it overheating? How do we fix this? We dd take off the top & sides & clean it all out. Any help is appreciated - thank you!
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.
