Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

We have a Rianni 1004F propane heater. We were wondering how low the temp will go in economy mode as we are leaving it on during the week while we are gone. The manual is unclear.

Do not leave it on. The thermostat could [ figuratively freeze up] lock on a certain temperature, overheat and cause internal wires to catch on fire

SOURCE: room temp and unit temp are way different what can

The Rinnai's temperature probe is located very low (about 2" off the floor} and is telling you what temperature the floor is. There are two things you can do. Remove the front cover and look for a yellow wire wrapped up with a black plastic tie. Remove it from the tie and feed out some extra wire to the back of the heater. Next take off the right side trim panel closest to the wall. You will find a yellow wire with a black rubber tip clipped into a black plastic holder. Un-secure the probe and relocate it higher up in the back of the heater. Do not place it near the cloth and metal vent pipe. It is OK to place it near the corrugated gray plastic pipe. This will give the probe a better sample of the room air. The second way is to insulate the wall behind the heater so that the probe will not be effected by cold air infiltrating from the wall. If this does not help the situation, replace the probe called a thermistor. I can send you one for $25.00 if you find you need one. Contact me at the_rinnai-guy@hotmail.com.

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.

A downeast hot tub water is only 78 degrees turn up to 100 doesn't never get warmer and shows a ECn code


Check your filter cycles and switch spa into Standard Mode as you have it in Economy. (In Economy mode it will only heat during the filter cycles).
If the Ecn or Ec Message is Alternating with the Water Temperature on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Economy Heating Mode.

If the Ecn or Ec Message is ON Solid (Not Flashing) on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Economy Heating Mode, but there is No current water temperature because the Spa is between Filter Cycles.

Ecn or Ec is Alternating with Temp:
The Spa is Operating in the "Economy" (Ecn or Ec) Heating Mode.

The Water Temperature is Sampled Only during Programmed Filter Cycles. The Heater will Only operate and Heat up to Set Temperature during the Filter Cycles. The Water Temperature will probably drop Below Set Temperature between Filter Cycles. Other Heating Modes are Standard, Standard in Economy, and Sleep Modes.

Ecn or Ec is ON Solid (Not Flashing):
The Current Water Temperature is "Unknown" (- - - or - -) while in Economy or Sleep Mode.

Between Filter Cycles, while in the Economy or Sleep Heating Modes, the Pump has not turned ON and the Last Water Temperature is not Current. To read the Current Water Temperature, either Change to Standard Heating Mode or turn On the Heating Related Pump, and wait at least 2 Minutes.

Rinnai 1004F Heating the Outdoors!


Do you have the Economy button on? If so, and you have a large space to heat or the outside temp is very cold the unit may not be able to keep up. If this is the case the stove runs forever, trying to reduce the temp by 2 degrees every 30 minutes. This may not work for your space and outside temp.

Your ideas about the intake and exhaust are not quit right. There is a fan that pulls air from outside over the outside of the exhaust pipe (to preheat it). This fan actually pushed the combustion gasses all the way out the exhaust. The exhaust exiting should be a little hot. In very cold temps, frost can build up around the air intake, which is right around the exhaust pipe. If you see this you will need to keep it clean. It is a good idea to look at the exhaust everyday when it really cold.

Good luck,

Rinaai LP space heater will not shut off when set temp is reached


Test the thermistor by using an ice cube. Place the cube on the thermistor and see if the unit starts. Then using a warm towel, wrap the thermistor ans see if it stops. Watch the display to see if it is registering the changes in temp. I suspect a bad thermistor.
