I have changed a 2001 Consule to an Ultima Consule once and just had to raise it up 50mm using a plinth. I made one myself using some nice tiles and hardwood face that pleased the customer. I've tried to search through my manuals for a 2000 to double check that the flue spigot is the same width and depth but couldn't find one.

All I can say is my swap worked ok with the plinth. Not sure how a 4" one will look though? Double check measurements on the old 2000 and you should be ok.

Only other way would be to cut out a larger hole in the wall to access the flue, fabricate an extension to the twin wall down pipe and actually drop the spigot opening. Sounds a bit more hassle, hard to say without actually seeing the thing. Hope it turns out ok and this limited advice was worth it.

My gas wall heater only stay lit for about 5mins. Easy to restart.


First thing to try is to check the flue to see if it is blocked or even partially blocked. This type of flue assembly exhausts burnt gases from the heater and another section draws fresh air in to the heater to be mixed and burnt with the gas.
the centre of the flue is the exhaust section and the outer section of the flue is the fresh air intake section.
removing the flue cowl will allow a visual inspection of the flue for any blockages.
If the flue is a long run then a plumber may need to be called to disassemble the flue for a closer inspection.

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.

My Rinnai 1004F giving me error code 99


This fusible link may be open. Try jumpering the two leads and see if the unit operates. If it does replace the fusible link. Do not operate the unit without the fusible link for an extended period. It is a safety device and is there for a reason. Hope this helps.

I have a rinnai 1001ft heater but i need the flue is there enyone that has one please


You should be able to get the flue kit from any Rinnai resellers.


There are many different flueing options existing for Rinnai Energysaver depending on where you wish to install it (by a licensed gas fitter only of course).

Depending on what flue kit you need for your own situation you could be looking anywhere between $150 to $800 (AUD).

Go on their website for a list of resellers.

Error Code 11


Ignition Failure. Make sure you have fuel. Look into the window when you try to start to see if you can see the sparking of the iginter. Make sure the flue pipe is clear on both the exhaust and air side. Short of that you will need to get hold of a Rinnai tech.

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

Can you vent the Rinnai 551F vertically through ceiling?


This unit can be vented through the roof but requires a specialized flue system-do not use an existing flue connection. Call a contractor - have them check and see if the unit can be modified to a vertical flue- it will require the existing piping to be replaced--Not a job for a do-it yourselfer

Replacing a Rinnai 403 FT


gday nelson. if you check out the specs on the rinnai range you will find another one that will go straight in. if you buy new it will come with a new flue kit. as far as recomended installation heights most of them are quite flexible. i installed a second hand 403ft yesterday with the centre of the flue at 140mm from the floor. recomended in the instructions were 240mm. a mate gave me the heater and i just had to buy a flue kit as the old one was already too short. if you messure your flue from inside and send me the specs i can give you a more difinitive answer.
