Rinnai model 531 2520FFU 91 N

Hello,
Unit was installed by proffesional less than 30 days ago.
Works great most time.
On occasion unit vibrates badly and very noisy on start up and usually lasts until shut down. May not happen again for week or more.
Vibration actually shakes unit and dishes in cupboard.
Installer has checked and found no problem.
Help!

Have the installer replace the inducer blower assembly. Rinnai will cover the repair and your technician will get paid from Rinnai.

Do you have a softener? Water must be 15 GRS/PPM or less in iron and calcium. Hot spots in unit are boiling water and are causing the noises.
Descale and flush unit following Rinnai Specs and check water hardness for compliance with Rinnai standards because too hard an inlet water will VOID the Heat Exchanger Warranty (10 year).

Sorry Ken I worked for Rinnai Australia as a service manager so treat my advice with a little cuation but you should find the basic universal controller should work fine. The code over here is a MC-91 Q2A. It will MC-91 sometihing for over there (I'm guessing from the codes you use you are across the pacific!). You can wire this unit either back to the heater or to wiring from another controller, just match the colours and link them in. Power off the heater first but it is all low voltage.

If this is doing this by itself, I'd return it right away - or if that option is not available; call for warranty service. Now.

Invariably, this will fail catastrophically the day AFTER the warranty expires. If it has been bought less than 30 days ago, you can buy a 3rd party warranty for less than the in-store warranty sells for through SquareTrade.

Good luck!

You may have a bad circuit board. Depending upon the age of the heater it may still be under warranty. Contact Rinnai (in US) 800-621-9419 with your serial number and installation date. Ask if they can offer a solution. Good Luck!

Map updates. The directions are often incorrect. Device voice and map show me I am at destination then changes to show it is actually a half mile or more down the road. Needs corrections!!!!!!!!! Thanks!


There ar frequent minor map corrections accessible through MapShare. You configure your GPS to accept these corrections. You can selected to accept ALL, or from TRUSTED sources, or ONLY corrections verified by TomTom.
Connect the unit to the computer and download the MapShare corrections. If your map is too old, maybe it is time to get the latest one.

If you have started using your unit not long ago (less than 30 days) you may have the right to a free update. TomTom offers the 30 day latest map guarantee.

Connect the unit to a computer where you installed the tomtom HOME application. Upon registration, HOME will proceed to update your GPS.

I have a Rinnai model 2532 Tankless Water heater. When the Bath water is turned on (which is the largest water flow for the water heater)it makes a loud vibrating sound that can be heard through the entire...


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.

Soution: 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 mechanically inclined:
TURN THE BREAKER / POWER OFF to the unit.

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. Also - the Rinnai pipe going outside is a pipe within a pipe - so its both inlet and outlet air.

Robert,

If your screen is clean and the circulating fan motor works you will have to remove the front cover. Take the two screws off the bottom and move the front down and off. The top will need to be removed as well. There are two screws in the back. Move the top cover forward and lift it up. You may see the plastic cover that is meant to cover the circuit board is laying down in front of the overheat switch. If so just lay it back over the circuit board.

Keep us posted if this is the case. I have seen two new heaters this way in the last 6 months.

Raise the thermistor. It is a black rubber probe located on the back of the heater close to the coldest spot in your home, the floor. Raise it a few inches. To do this you will need to unhook it from its holder and open the front of the heater to unravel the extra length of yellow wire.

Error 11 code


If the gas lines are moving or vibrating regularly, especially as they get older there is a possibility of fracture, so I would get them tethered properly. if no obvious vibration or risk of movement then they are probably fine if you are sure there are no leaks other than that i just found this manual earlier on for another user: - hopefully it can answer your questions http://www.rinnai.us/Rinnai.aspx/FileLibrary.aspx/DealerResources.aspx/DocumentsLibrary.aspx/WallFurnacesDirectVentMainHeatSource.aspx/RHFE1004FA.aspx/GeneralInformation.aspx/456RHFE1004FAManual32003.pdf.aspx Hope this helps :)
