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

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!
-Erin

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.

My rinnai energysaver 1001ft will not turn on.It has power to it but it will not power up when switched on.no lights no go.HELP;;


Hello Mark Obrien,

I searched the internet trying to get a HIT from your
rinnai+energysaver+1001ft

and all combinations there-of...

I also went on-line to a MAJOR RETAILER site & poured over their inventory of systems and parts (see below)...
Alpine Home Air Products Contractor grade furnaces heaters air...

Nothing... so:
Assuming you are talking about a heater here


If you are seeing no "lights"...
perhaps checking the SECONDARY side of your
POWER TRANSFORMER would be the best advice...

If that has the required (typically 24 volt output)
continue on to your main control board...
(looking for the Typical FUSE (usually 5 AMP)...

If the fuse is OPERATED... replace it...
f it operates again... IT is time to consider purchasing that
SPARE MAINBOARD you always wanted...

Like a YORK furnace... (verify your OWN NUMBERS)

My Rinnai 1001F has just developed a loud rattle when turned on. What's the most common problem and who fixes in Manchester NH?


There are two fans or blowers in your unit. The first to turn on prior to the flame starting. The second fan blows out hot air into the room. Depending upon when the rattle starts will dictate which fan is causing the rattle. Any good gas company should be able to help you out.

Where is the pilot light on Rinnai EnergySaver 1001F


If you smell gas in a Rinnai you have a big issue. This heater is what is called a direct vent heater with an electronic ignition so the combustion chamber is sealed and the smell of gas is an indication that you have a gas leak. Please call a professional today.
