Inducer motor noise

Never trust anything that comes to you new because usually they are made in china and are not consistent, but next time make sure clean air is being supplied if impeller gets dirt build it becomes imbalanced and will draw high amps and create that vibration noise. Also vibration noise can be caused by improper combustion set up.

id say the draft u feel is normal (if it wasn't fumes wouldn't exit the home) lock outs usually occur when there is a fault to exist in the burner circuit (detected) like the flame proving sensor being defective(very common) or no draft fan running , you ill need to do a little more looking to determine what is needed

There may be gas pressure at the valve but the valve, igniter, and/or thermocouple could be defective. Also, even with good ignition, the burner itself could be defective.

Why does my water heater make crackling noises

The crackling noise is from build-up of sediment.
I forget exact reaction that causes the noise.
Water heaters exposed to hard water will create sediment inside the tank.

your blower motor is trying to seize up on you, it is time to change it, if the fan doesn't come on first your water heater should not light, the fan comes on first to get eccess gasses out of the burner compartment,, do not light with ot the fan first it could combust

Electric relay is smoking

You are correct. They are relays. A low voltage operates a higher voltage.

Rinnai infinity hot water service, goes hot and cold...not fun in the shower!

We had the same problem - the hot water would only be hot for 3 -5 minutes and shut off, then we had to turn the water off, wait a few minutes, and do it again. VERY FRUSTRATING.

Solution: The Rinnai serviceman showed me the heat-exchanger blower/fan: It was clogged with dust and moths.

Another clue: Our Rinnai was extremely noisy when the heat came on. After the fan was cleaned and replaced, it is nearly silent.

If you are reasonably machanically inclined:

The blower-fan is located in the lower central area of the unit (at least on our unit). If you draw imaginary north-south, east-west lines through the center of the unit, the fan is in the lower-left quadrant. There is a spring clamp securing the black rubber accordian-like tube to the fan. There are two screws that secure the fan to the unit. there are two plugs that connect to the fan, as well as a third air-flow sensor that should be removed. then you can look at the fan unit, as well as the grill on the underside of the heat-exchanger that should be cleaned.

My thought was to go out and get a simple bug-screen, and place it over the air-input outlet vent going outside, but the repair guy said that although it may sound good, if that screen ever gets clogged, or reduces airflow to the Rinnai, then the unit will work harder, or even shut off, giving the same problem,
