It likely needs maintenance.

    It likely needs a good cleaning. This is where I would start. They have so many safety devices that will stop them from running. If you can do it, do it.

SOURCE: Rinnai EnergySaver 556F Heater flashes

I'm picking up a faint propane scent when the heater is completely turned off. When I turn the heater on it lights fine so I don't suspect it's the pilot light. Is this an issue with the installation of the fuel line, or could it still be the pilot? Any ideas on troubleshooting the source?

SOURCE: my rinnai 556fa propane heater

I had the identical trouble with my Rinnai 431F just now & read the unanswered posts.

I checked my intake & exhaust & found them connected & intact then went out to check the exterior vent assembly. The "bell" or dome was almost entirely clogged with ice.

I suspect the 60 - 76 lights flashing means insufficient combustion air.

Anyway, I took a hair dryer to it & in 10 minutes it was working as well as ever.

This won't help you October posters but if anyone else has this problem in the future I would start with the outside vent assembly. Get a good look right up inside because I would have missed this ice if I didn't get up close with a flashlight.

Here's a good source for manuals too...

SOURCE: Rinnai Energysaver 1001FT, ignites, blows 5mins then shuts down.

Sounds like it is reaching high limit...either the filters on the back are plugged, or the manifold pressure isn't adjusted properly. IF the exhaust were plugged on the unit, it wouldn't fire at all, since it has a pressure switch to verify vent flow. The slightest blockage, the unit will lock out to prevent damage to the unit.

I have a Rinnai RL 175 Tankless water heater. I just moved into the house two weeks ago. We have no hot water. Green priority light and beeping sound came on. Breaker also flipped on panel. Any ideas?


Usually, Breaker tripping indicates a hard short ... probably the heating element is shorted and needs replacement. Possible bad C/B but don't think so.
Good Luck! handy Henry.

be sure the thermocouple is in the pilot's flame and hold down the pilot lighting button long enough to heat it before trying to operate the heater...20 to 30 seconds should be enough. If this doesn't work, you may have a bad gas valve

Paul, the Error Code Fault 13, indicates a Combustion Control Fault. This could mean, not enough gas for safe combustion or to much gas for continued operation. In any event, if requires a service call from an authorized Rinnai Service Technician to solve.

Is there any possibility my Rinnai econoheat850 gas heater can give off carbon monoxide?


Any time there is combustion of any type fuel, from a Rinnai heater to a car engine. There is always a small amount of Carbon Monoxide given off. But, it's usually in small insignificant amounts.

Since your model is a Vent-free or flue-less model, the chances are a little higher. This usually occurs if the heater has not been properly and regularly maintained. Keep in mind, flue-less heaters take in household air for combustion, heat it and send it back out. Whatever is floating in the household air (duct, lint, pet hair, etc) is pulled into the heater. These things can clog the burner(s), the pilot and the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) and cause incomplete combustion. Which translates into higher than normal Co levels. However, your unit is equipped with an ODS, that will shut the gas off to the heater, if the household oxygen level reaches 25%. Which is not the danger level, which is 19%. Once the Oxygen level returns to 30%, the ODS will release the gas valve and gas will return to the pilot, so that you can relight it.

When properly maintained and operated according to the Owners Manual (see link below) they are totally safe. In the last 20 years, millions of vent-free/flue-less heaters have been sold and operated throughout the world. There has never been a death related to their use.

Certainly, if you or your family think you are experiencing signs of carbon monoxide poisoning, stop using the heater and have a qualified Rinnai technician check and service the heater. If you have other gas appliances in the house, it may be one of them causing the symptoms and not the heater. You may want to have those check and serviced, too.

My Rinnai is too noisy, attached to sheet rock garage wall but other side is a bedroom. Grandaughter is afraid to sleep in that bedroom. Rinnai rep says the noise is normal....


is this a rinnai water heater if so the noise likely is normal it is from the enormous amount of fuel that is being burned to heat water quick enough to get hot water to your faucet.
