Re: Presto Heat Dish Blows Circuit

It sounds like the heater is drawing more amps than your fuse is capable of handling. look at the i.d. plate and see what the wattage is for the appliance.

When door switch is energized, blower starts then fuse blows on circuit board within a second or two. I have disconnected all tstat wires to the board. Issue continues.

The fuse should have nothing to do with the you should be experiencing a direct short within the control circuit. Look for the burned or charred wires off of the sensors and other components or melted insulation on a couple wires allowing the wires to short together. Not a lot to go on here, but like I said earlier, start with the obvious.

Furnace blower runs continuously but no heat

sounds like the furnace control (low voltage) circuit is open, or in other words you either have a fuse blown or a limit switch that needs to be reset. Most newer furnaces have a small knife like fuse, usually 3 or 5 amp located directly on the circuit board. Limit switches that have a manual reset are usually located in the fire box just above the burner. There may even be a limit switch located on the blower assembly. If you fuse was blown, you may need to find out what caused the short in the circuit or it will do it again. If the limit switch was tripped, you need to turn the furnace back on and watch the flame to see if there is "roll out". It it continues to trip or blow fuses you need to have the unit serviced.

Electric heat strips, Fuse Link, Sequencers, main limit.
As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician or HVAC tech to advise what work is needed.
Before you do any work yourself,
on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,
always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

Fuse blow each time I turn on air check for

disconnect the thernostat wires from the control board. Put a jumper wire between R & G put door back on and turn on power. Blower motor
should run, if it blows the fuse then you have a direct short between R &
G at the board. Do this with R and W(heat) and R & Y(cool).

By disconnecting the thermostat wires and reinserting them make sure that they do not touch when inserted into each terminal. If it still blows
that little 3amp fuse when jumpering between each sequence as mentioned above, then I think your board is bad. When Jumpering out the Y terminal you will have to have the AC wires still hooked up. If it
blows the fuse in that sequence. Disconnect the wires out at the condensor.

You mat have a bad contactor at the outdoor unit.

Fault 14 on rinnai energysaver 556ftr


Error code 14 is Overheating error.

The error can be caused by the high limit sensing overheating and cutting off. In that case the thermal fuse may not blow. The high limit can be reset tripping circuit breaker and allowing the unit to cool down with power off.

If that does not work , then the thermo fuse has blown

In fact tis unit has a thermo fuse. (refer to manual).The thermal fuse can be tested reading continuity. If thermal fuse has blown, then replace the the thermo fuse. If the thermo fuse blows again, then there is a condition causing overheating. b260351.gif

Here Full service manual.

Unless you are a trained technician call Rinnai support ringing the number in the manual. Some of testing and repair operations described are not suitable for the home user.

Facial redness..

The heat you are feeling is from infrared photons. The type of photons that damages skin is mainly ultraviolet photons, which are much higher in energy than that of IR photons. Your skin may become pink from the heat but actual damage is unlikely at such lower energy for IR photons. In other words, you are not going to get a suntan. dont worry about it.

No heat

since the light is on its own circuit this dont surprise me at all. The most likely cause of this is the contacts on the inside of the heater. the wire inside of the unit is very small for a heater, bad design, and is conected by spade conectors. my wire in mine burnt through and did the same thing. I bought some good thick wire and rewired the unit direct and this seemed to fix the problem. If you need further assistance check out some of my other solutions in this same area.
