Hi,

It is a very high efficiency appliance, during operation a small amount pof water is produced in the flue tubes, this drains into the enamel tray. It is quite normal for a small quantity of water to remain in the bottom of the tray.If you are using the humidifier, it will need filling about once a day durying the heating season.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya' and have a nice day!!

I have the rinnai energy saver 1004f.. Do I have to put water in it for it to work?


Absolutely not. It does help with the humidity but you will find it empty each day because air blows over the water tray when on.

Need to move the unit by dismantling


Remove the two screws on the side trim. Remove the two top screws from the filter panel. Reach behind the heater and pull the sock down on the vent pipe. unclip the two clamps holding the vent pipe together. Remove the plastic elbow off of the vent termination. Slide the heater to the left to slide the vent pipe off of the vent termination. Remove the gas line after shutting the gas off.

Filter light & water mark


The tray is if you want to add humidity. You will constantly be filling it. The filter light could indicate a dirty blower or debris slowing down air flow over the heater.

Piping of these heaters in tandem is critical. Specified by Rinnai in their design manual, the cold water should be piped to both water heaters with a back-flow presenter installed before the first heater. The hot out piping should be "Tee-d" together and going to your hot water needs.

If piped as per the manual, try turning the water off to only one of the units. Turn on a hot water tap and see if the unit stays on without interruption. Then try the same on the second unit. You may find that one unit has a bad flow control, which is shutting off the flow of water.

Try vacuum cleaning the filter as the heater shuts down to protect itself from over-temperature. NB-turn off the heater before doing it. And yes, you add water to the tray (...carefully) - this increases the apparent heat. Peter
