Rinnai DV Propain Heater 556F

My onlight is red instead of green. The heater still heats but will not turn off, just continually runs. What is the problem?

    I noticed yesterday evening that the onlight is red when the temp is set to 68 degrees but works some of the time if I lower the temp setting to 64 degrees.

  • Jenn37 Apr 10, 2008

    That thread is not my problem. My heater is not turning off and the on off light is red instead of green.

  • Jenn37 Apr 10, 2008

    What relya are you referring to? Where is it located. Would this cause the on off light to be red instread of green.

  • Jenn37 Apr 10, 2008

    I called that phone number and it is the recall line for Rinnai. My unit is not in the recall database. They could not help me further.

  • Jenn37 Apr 11, 2008

    Thanks for the manual help. I did read that when the on light is red the burner is running. When the burner shuts down it goes green again and the blower keeps running.

    I checked this against my other rinnai and this holds true so the only thing that now is wrong is that it doesn't shut off when it is at a 68 degree setting.

    I won't have time to get inside the beast until next week. for now I'll just keep it at the lower setting.

    Thanks

    They couldn't even transfer you or give you a different number to call? What kind of company is that?

    Alright found their other number

    Contact Rinnai

    Freephone 0800 RINNAI

    0800 746 624


    Basically the control switch connecting to what it controls, I believe has gone back, something in between the control and the main board needs to be replaced, I usually call it a relay, but I am not familiar so much with this brand but If you open it up and follow the switch to the main board, something may look wrong, or even if it looks ok, then it still might have a problem. Look for broken or loose connections or anything that may smell burnt.

    Let me know what you find if you choose to open it and please keep me updated. thanks

Green light will not come on. red light continues flashing


I have experience in Dolce Gusto melody 3. I think that means that the machine warms up the heater. If it continues giving red flasher, i expect that no electricity reaches to the heater or there is something wrong with the heater sensor. In my machine there is Triac (BTB08-600CW) that drives the heater. Please check and show us what is happen.

I am installing a rth230b 5-2 programmable thermostat. I have an oil fired furnace. I am only using it to heat and I have red,green and white wires. It is not working. I have the red hooked up to RH...


Yes with out being there to check it for heat only applications you only utilize the red and white wires. It goes to say that red goes on the red terminal R and white to the white terminal W. Should you have done this correctly your heater is now run by the thermostat. Good Job and happy heating!!

What does it mean when the power light (the small round light on the front of the heater that indicates the heater is on) is red instead of green?


was reading a rinnai pdf today about this, green means that the unit has power the red means the burner is operating so it just tells you when the gas is going basically, may not be the same for this rinnai model but is on the energy saver 556 so hopefully that explains your heater for you it should be in the owners manual if you have one as pdf i was reading was manual for another rinnai if you don't have a manual you can try downloading just type heater name and model into your google search with manual mentioned there too should bring up a pdf or a link to manual

I rent and have a Rinnai Energy saver 556F. I have it at 64 and the light blinks for 68. I would like to know why. It is 56 out side now thank you


Shadow,

The 68 you see is an error code. It means you have had an over heat situation. You should be able to clean the filter and fan area and restart. Turn the heater off and on again, that should reset everything and you should be good.

My wife said the pump timed off and the heater was heating. She shut the heater off and restarted the pump and now the heater won't ignite. The red light blinks three times and I am not sure how to get it...


The fan will continue to run for a few minutes after the pump turns off to purge exhaust gasses.If it was still heating you have a problem. To reset the heater,turn off the pump breaker for 30 seconds. After that you need a repairman.

Rinnai energysaver 556f manual


Here is a link to the 556FTR from Australia.
They are all pretty much the same. The US site has similar info. Just google Rinnai. Open the site, go to resources tab and click downloads. The manuals are easy to locate.
