Rinnai 556 F sputters when starting

I followed your instcutions and found the items but the glass peep hole seemed to be attached with small rivets and didn't appear to be removable. I cleaned everything well with a big shop vac and then started the heater observing the flame through the peep hole. It came on and made a loud sputtering sound and the flame was yellowish red but after 10 seconds or so of fluttering the heater started and a two tone blue flame coud be seen. The flame was darker blue close to the base of the flame and lighter blue at the outer edges but looked healthy.

Is there a way to adjust the startup to eliminate the flutter and sputter ? Sometimes it will fail to start and I get the flashing red light.

There is a way to adjust the flame, but you will need a monometer to do it. I would suggest getting in a gas technician to adjust your gas pressures. You do this for both low and high pressure.

As a licenced plumber the only thing I will suggest is to call someone and have them service the heater.

Gas is deadly, and it sounds like there is something blocking the injector port, causing the gas/air mixture to not mix properly, which will make the flame change colour and characteristics.

The burner may need to come out, the inlet gas pressure will need to be checked and other things.

The rinai heaters are also expensive, as you would know, and trying to fix it yourself is dangerous. Also, once serviced by a plumber you will have the peace of mind to know it has been serviced properly and will run well for many more years.

You will need to find a licenced gas fitter.

My rinnai 556 will not start, the only light is with the child lock pressed, on/off does not light? any ideas?


HI, Dear your rinnai 556 is not starting thats why it can not genrate the error code ,i advice you in this case you can not identifiy the exact problem. but i m trying to help you with my best tring:-
What you need to do -
Check the model number and serial number which are found on the data label located on the bottom of the right hand panel of the unit. Any Rinnai Energysaver Models RHFE-556T and RHFE-556FTRG Gas Air Warmers with a serial number contain the the year (YY) digits "00" to "07" may be affected. If you cannot read the data label or think you may have an affected model do not use the Air Warmer and inform anyone who may use the Air Warmer that they should not do so. Contact the Rinnai freephone helpline for further instructions, even if you have not experienced any problems

HELPLINE 0800 0304 556 or you can visit http://www.rinnaiuk.com or email project@rinnaiuk.com if you have any further questions.

The helpline staff will validate whether you have an affected product and will arrange for a Gas Safe Registered Engineer to visit and replace the gasket in the air Warmer.

i hope this will be helpfull to you. PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO VOTE ME. GOODLUCK..............

The rear passanger window fell into the door. I lifted the glass and taped it so it stays up, but I would like to fix it so it properly works. what should I do?


you'll need to remove the door skin

you will see where the window attaches to the regulator

it is usually held together by two rivets

if you cannot find the replacement rivets, typicaly a dealer item only, you can just use small nuts and bolts

My Rinnai says not to use it without an air filter and to clean the air filter once a week--but I can't see an air filter. Is it possible that it was installed without one?


If you have a RHFE263, 431 or 556, the air filter is located at the top in the seam where the wall trim piece attaches to the heater. It looks like a dryer lint filter.

You are not getting gas for some reason. Check the valve to make sure it is getting power to open the solenoid. It may need to be set to on. If you are getting power to the valve and its not getting gas, check the orifice. Sometimes a spider or other bug will get in there and plug it up. Its a very small hole, so it wont take much to block it.
