SOURCE: Dear Sir/MAdam Our Rinnai Gas Heater,

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.

Regards
Shane

You should probably replace the heater motor. All the parts should still be available for you fan and it should only take a few minutes to change out.

it sounds like delayed ignition, this is VERY dangerous, you need to verify sequence of operation and fuel air mixture.

SOURCE: pilot on, gas fires up, no fan comes on.

Sounds like you are talking about the indoor fan that circulates air through house. Turn the unit off and make sure the fan rotates freely. Next check the capacitor for the fan. If it looks swollen its probably bad. If it doesn't look swollen then you will need a multimeter to check it with. If that's ok then check the fan relay. Let me know what you find.

Noisy when operator...especially during start-up. A deep rumbling...a bearing wearing out? Vibration...something loose Thank you.


Depending on how much the heater has been used, you may just have carbon/soot built up on the exhaust fan blades. This can be remedied by removing the blower assembly and cleaning the exhaust fan blades. They are the set on top. If could also be a bearing as you suggest but I would check the fan blades first. Let me know if this doesn't fix the problem.

Simply clean out the jet tube with a fine wire, the sound you hear is the gas blowing by the irregular edges, and swirling and not mixing and producing sound waves, (Bit like a flute) So, you need to clean the tube right out, and smooth off the end again, & sorta "Countersink", Flame the end too, at the end.use a very fine needle file, and make it look like new, that will sort your problem out. Then adjust so you have a good gas flow. Also check out it isn't blocked too.

I have a Rinnai model 2532 Tankless Water heater. When the Bath water is turned on (which is the largest water flow for the water heater)it makes a loud vibrating sound that can be heard through the entire...


We had the same problem - the hot water would only be hot for 3 -5 minutes and shut off, then we had to turn the water off, wait a few minutes, and do it again. VERY FRUSTRATING.

Soution: The Rinnai serviceman showed me the heat-exchanger blower/fan: It was clogged with dust and moths.

Another clue: Our Rinnai was extremely noisy when the heat came on. After the fan was cleaned and replaced, it is nearly silent.

If you are reasonably mechanically inclined:
TURN THE BREAKER / POWER OFF to the unit.

The blower-fan is located in the lower central area of the unit (at least on our unit). If you draw imaginary north-south, east-west lines through the center of the unit, the fan is in the lower-left quadrant. There is a spring clamp securing the black rubber accordian-like tube to the fan. There are two screws that secure the fan to the unit. there are two plugs that connect to the fan, as well as a third air-flow sensor that should be removed. then you can look at the fan unit, as well as the grill on the underside of the heat-exchanger that should be cleaned.

My thought was to go out and get a simple bug-screen, and place it over the air-input outlet vent going outside, but the repair guy said that although it may sound good, if that screen ever gets clogged, or reduces airflow to the Rinnai, then the unit will work harder, or even shut off, giving the same problem. Also - the Rinnai pipe going outside is a pipe within a pipe - so its both inlet and outlet air.

You may be having detonation. Switch to premium gas. Do not use gas with Ethanol. Change to a new spark plug > NGK DP8EA-9. Run through a couple of tanks of gas and see if the problem has gone away.

you could try taking the fan assembly out and adjusting it or oiling it, sometimes it gets that back pressure when the door is closed because it has to work harder
