Hi.

Error code 14 is Overheating error.

The error can be caused by the high limit sensing overheating and cutting off. In that case the thermal fuse may not blow. The high limit can be reset tripping circuit breaker and allowing the unit to cool down with power off.

If that does not work , then the thermo fuse has blown

In fact tis unit has a thermo fuse. (refer to manual).The thermal fuse can be tested reading continuity. If thermal fuse has blown, then replace the the thermo fuse. If the thermo fuse blows again, then there is a condition causing overheating. fault 14 on rinnai energysaver 556ftr - b260351.gif

Here Full service manual.


Unless you are a trained technician call Rinnai support ringing the number in the manual. Some of testing and repair operations described are not suitable for the home user.

Regards.

Ginko.

Can a Rinnai 556FTR (2010) flue be converted from straight out the wall - to out a chimney?


No, Rinnai manufacture other models with a conventional flue.
Most models these days are balanced flue for ease of installation.

How to install


Unfortunately, the installation of one of these units is not quite as simple as 1, 2, 3.

So, I am providing a couple links on the installation process. You can download and print each one.

The first is the Flue Installation Guide.
http://www.rinnai.com.au/images/stories/operating_instructions/Heating/Energysaver/CI_ES_Flue_Inst_Manual.pdf

The second is the Operation Guide, which also deals with proper installation.
http://www.rinnai.com.au/images/stories/operating_instructions/Heating/Energysaver/CI_ES_Flue_Inst_Manual.pdf

The third is the exploded parts view & parts diagram, Which you may need in the future.
http://www.rinnai.com.au/images/stories/operating_instructions/Heating/Energysaver/CI_ES_Flue_Inst_Manual.pdf

I hope all of this information will help you properly install the unit.

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.

Error code 11 on a Rinnai energysaver 556FTR


Rachel,

The 11 code means Missed Ignition. This is a broad error code. It just means the stove did not light when it was supposed to. I would check the fuel first to be sure the valve is on and you have gas. Next, try to start the stove with the room dark. Look into the window to confirm a sparking. This is the igniter. At the same time be sure the combustion motor is running. You should be able to hear it and feel the stove to confirm this. If the motor does not turn or the flue is blocked you will not get any gas to flow. Look outside to confirm the flue is not blocked.

Keep us posted,

Tom

Our heater 556ftr is got a code error flashing, 14


I found the manual on the net and it said error code 14 is overheating, it suggests to clean the filter, but my filter was clean, so I'm wondering if my flue has been installed incorrectly. On mine the error code is staying on after switching the power off and on, so this means my thermal fuse has blown.
