Real odd one as if ignition fails this unit is designed to flash various lights to give you an idea of what the fault is. Also this usually happens after about 10-15 seconds. I'm going to have to ask you to clarify that no other lights flash. If I had this fault exactly as you descibe, after running some basic tests to check gas supply and any obvious damage or burnt out components I would change the the main PCB as a start and the control PCB as a plan B.

I have a 30000 btu rinnai floor heater mod 630530. The pilot wont stay lit . I have installed a new thermo couple . please help


be sure the thermocouple is in the pilot's flame and hold down the pilot lighting button long enough to heat it before trying to operate the heater...20 to 30 seconds should be enough. If this doesn't work, you may have a bad gas valve

Totai heater wont stay on after lit


Without a pilot flame sensor signal the pilot light will not stay on and the heater won't work. Try Replacing the pilot flame sensor, the pilot flame burns on to it and it connects to the valve. It looks like a wire.

Extremely annoying humming sound coming from our rinnai RCE-318H gas heater. sounds like a bearing or wheel spinning noise. please help?


The humming you hear is from the gas pressure or lack there of. Check the inline gas shut off valve, to make sure it's fully open. If that checks out OK, turn the unit OFF completely and wait five minutes, before turning everything back ON and relighting the heater. If the noise is still there, contact your Rinnai dealer for a service call.

I hope this helped you, Arthur. Thanks for choosing FixYa. Cheers!

My reddy 30 heater will not stay lit after starting, I have held the switch down for longer than 30 sec, but it just want stay lit


The thermocouple is what tells the gas valve to supply or not supply gas. Several things can cause the thermocouple to malfuntion.
1. pilot light jet is clogged and will not allow the pilot light to reach and heat the thermocouple. Repair by cleaning the pilot light jet out.
2. corrosion on the thermocouple which will also not allow the flame from the pilot to heat the thermocouple properly. Repair by sanding the thermocouple lightly with sandpaper
3. Thermocouple is bad and needs replacement.

You have a dirty pilot assembly and maybe even a bad ECO switch (safety switch). I would suggest replacing the ECO and removing the pilot assembly and clean it out.

Rinnai wall heater won't lite.


You may need to take the pilot assembly apart and clean the pilot orifice. If the pilot does not stay lite you may need a new thermocouple. Good Luck.
