Rinnai rce-606tra II -- temperature is wrong

The temperature measured by my Rinnai unit is 10 degrees low -- it show 50 degrees when it is 60 degrees. I could simply adjust the thermostat setting by 10 degrees, except the lowest setting is 60 degrees (which keeps the room at 70 degrees). Is there a way to correct the temperature measurement?

Hello - I have an Rinnai RCE-329H and have some how locked it. Can you tell me how to unlock it?


It must be something in the air over Australia. You're the 4th person today, that has had this problem/question.

To unlock the unit press the UP & Down Temperature buttons at the same time, for 3 seconds. To lock it back out, do the same thing.

Hope this helped, cheers.

How do I turn it on? I press the "on" button and


The manual says:
http://www.coinwash.com/temp/rinnai.pdf

"For the name of the Authorized Distributor or Installer nearest you, please contact your local HVAC dealer or gas service technician, visit the Rinnai website (www.rinnai.us), call Rinnai at1-800-621-9419 or write to Rinnai, 103 International Drive, Peachtree City, Georgia 30269"

Manual says that the remote is for setting temperature.
When you turn on hot water spigot, tankless water heater will heat the water to the set point temperature.
If water heater is not set up to use remote, then tankless unit will heat to 140 degrees F.
"With the MCC-45-4US remote control installed the water temperature is adjustable from 96
to 180°F. The water temperature cannot be set to a temperature other than 140°F
without the use of the MCC-45-4US remote control unit. If you require a temperature
other than 140°F you must install the MCC-45-4US remote control unit."

"Error messages are displayed on the remote control units, simplifying service calls."

Page 9 of manual shows hot to set temperature using remote.
Water taps must be shut off to set temperature.
Circulating pump must be turned off.
"Simply press the H or C button until desired temperature is displayed"
"green in-use indicator will display"

If your unit is not working, the manual says to contact local plumber.
Fixya has specialists who will talk to you by phone about your problem for a fee.

Rinnai gas heater model RCE-318H piezzo keeps trying to light unsuccessfully times out after about 30 secs.then pilot light led stays lit up. any ideas.?


Real odd one as if ignition fails this unit is designed to flash various lights to give you an idea of what the fault is. Also this usually happens after about 10-15 seconds. I'm going to have to ask you to clarify that no other lights flash. If I had this fault exactly as you descibe, after running some basic tests to check gas supply and any obvious damage or burnt out components I would change the the main PCB as a start and the control PCB as a plan B.

The economy setting on my 25TR heater does not seem to work. When I set the desired temperature to 19 degrees the heater stays on full evne though the recorded room temperature is 22 degrees. What can I...


The sensor for these is inside at the rear near the filter. Choices are really limited to just turn it on and off when you want heat or spend the money on getting it to an agent. If you have never had it serviced I would reccomend getting this done. Maybe whilst it's being cleaned out you can get some adice on got of part replacment. Likely to be either the sensor or the control board itself (ouch on the latter)

Error code 12


Error code 12 is a genaric "Flame Failure" code. I suspect that the flame is not hitting the flame sensor or that the sensor is bad. You will need to get to the sensor located on the far left hand side of the unit. If you have the owners manual, it's part #123. Remove it and clean it off. Make sure it is placed back in the heater properly aligned and all the way in. Then try and light it. If it does not stay lit, it may need to be replaced but check out the burner tray for debris not allowing the flame to travel all the way to the sensor. You will have to remove many parts to get to the burner assembly.
