Normally the heater will let out a screeching noise when it hasn't ignited properly thats why i think its the switch that may create the noise - very annoying

It sounds like you have a air noise, this is created by high velocity air. You may have a leak or the duct size is to small for the volume of air passing through it.

Clicking noise Rinnai Avenger Gas heater


Is sounds like it could be the automatic ignition. If the sound only happens when you are pressing or turning the knob, I would say that is all that it is. Most gas heaters have an ignition switch under the knob. This triggers the ignition to try and spark. light the gas when the knob is depressed.

Have a Rinnai Energy Saver 551 F gas heater. When the heater is switched on it then turns itself off after approximately 5 minutes


Stuart, I beleive the model number you have is Rinnai, Model 151 Portable Gas Heater (Meaning it's flue-less). If that is the case, the Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS), which is part of the Pilot, may be clogged with dust, lint, pet hair, etc. In which case, cleaning it, with canned compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with) can solve the problem. Also, cleaning the entire interior of the heater is a prudent thing to do, at least once a year. A vacuum cleaner that has a hose and brush attachment works well for this. To assist you, I have included a link to "How to clean your Pilot and Burner Assembly" Demonstration, as well as a link to the Owner's Manual for you Model Rinnai Portable Gas Heater.

Cleaning Demonstration: http://www.desatech.com/techDocs/Cleaning%20Demonstrations.pdf

Owner's Manual: http://www.rinnai.com.au/images/stories/operating_instructions/Heating/Portables/Portable_Radiant_Convectors.pdf

I hope this has helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Cheers!

Have a Rinnai convector 404 that has a ear piercing whistle to it as soon as you turn it on, have had a look with covers off and it seems like the noise is coming from where the gas comes into the heater.


Most likely it is a problem with the gas pressure or the air adjustment. You will need a Manometer to be able to check it and adjust it so I would recommend you call your local gas technician. If you have a shut-off on the unit, you can test this by throttling down the valve till the whistle diminishes however this is not a fix, just a diagnosis.

My Rinnai 606tr Silent Server continually shuts down and the number 12 appears on the display screen. What's up ?


I know that this is an old post but i had this same problem and i cant find a single answer to this problem anywhere on the net. Rinnai couldnt even give me an answer (let alone even call me back)

Well I figured it out. If you go onto Rinnai's website, you can download the manual, which has the codes and what they mean. Code 12 means Flame Failure. Still this didnt tell me enough. After taking the thing completely apart twice i finally figured out that the heater itself was perfectly fine.

The gas line was the problem. My gas line has a check valve on it right next to the heater. The check valve was not letting a consistent flow of gas to the heater because the heater was drawing too much gas at times, causing the check valve to start to close because it thought there was a leak (so to speak).

All i did was turn the gas valve behind the heater so that it was closed more (not letting as much gas flow through) so that it wouldnt trip the check valve. the heater now works fine and keeps a consistent temperature with no problems.

Heater not heating at the right temperature?


Sir,

Your heater is only a 21K BTU heater. It is not meant to heat a whole house. We don't know how big you house is, however a 21K heater will not heat 4 or 5 rooms. The best you could expect out of a Rinnai 556 would be to heat a couple of rooms that are next to each other. You will never be able to heat rooms in your house that have doors or are down the hall a ways.

Good luck,

Rinnai 556 Heater


Call Rinnai. I have replaced about 15 control boards that have an issue rating with the capacitor microfahred rating. There is no recall, but if you at least let them run your EXACT MODEL AND SERIAL number you may be pleasantly suprised that they send someone out to replace the board.

If you have a dual port digital manometer and are handy, you may be able to install a new board. You MUST reset the high and low fire rate with the new board. Hope this helps
