Question about Rinnai RHFE-1004FA 38,400 BTU Energy Saver Ductless Heater - LP Gas
Have been getting error code 99 which indicates a blocked flue, but I've cleared the flue and am getting the same result. your previous answer indicated that the "fusible link" may be open. How do I identify this on the unit?
There could be up three thermal fuses on this type of heater.
please see the attached link and on page 35 there is an electrical schematic showing the three thermal fuses TF1, TF2, and TF3.
A quick test could be done by placing a temporary short across the blue and white wires.
NOTE: this test should only be performed by qualified personnel as there could be dangerous voltages present.
Also the short must be removed after the test, and under no circumstances is the short to be left in place as this will disable all protection devices in this part of the circuit.
If this test enables the unit to operate correctly then the wires will have to be traced to find the exact location of the faulty thermistor.
Thermistor will look like a cylindrical component with a solid wire coming out each end.

On miscellaneous heaters gas(some oil fired heaters) have what is called a spill out switch---this is located where--- if the stack is plugged the heat/flue gases will spill out and melt a heat sensitive switch causing it to shut the system down---- if this has happened you---you have to replace this in order for the heater to function---these sensors/switches are connected in series for safety to eliminate carbon monoxide poisoning----de>th----fire
