    A Rinnai heater does not have a pilot light. There is a igniter that sparks to light the gas. You must have a error code on the display. It may look like a temp setting, 60, 64,68 but the heater will not come on. Keep us posted.

Patrick,

Your 556 does not have a pilot light. When you try to start look into the window, you should see an arcing, this is the igniter. With a power outage there is no telling what may have happened. With only limited knowledge of a gas heater you should call a Rinnai service guy.

Good luck,

Tom

The temp you are looking at may be an error code. 72 Room sensor, 68 Over heat, 76.80 Room sensor short, etc. What is the exact code??

How do you get Rinnai energy saver (263FA) out of function lock mode


When you say "Function Lock" I am not sure what you are looking at. If it the Child Lock feature, you should be able to turn the stove off and push the Child Lock button to turn it off. Some of the error codes on Rinnai's look like tempertures,i.e. 60, 68, 11. I am not sure about the 263's but they should be just like a 556F. If you have a owners manual you can find all the codes. The Rinnai web site can help you get a manual if you don't have one.

I rent and have a Rinnai Energy saver 556F. I have it at 64 and the light blinks for 68. I would like to know why. It is 56 out side now thank you


Shadow,

The 68 you see is an error code. It means you have had an over heat situation. You should be able to clean the filter and fan area and restart. Turn the heater off and on again, that should reset everything and you should be good.

My rinnai 556f wont run. I turn it on and the on light quickly turns red. Also the filter light comes on even after I clean the filter.


Press the up arrow, down arrow and economy button all at the same time and hold them down for three seconds. A bunch of lights will light up under the numbers. Write them down and look in your operation manual for a diagnostic chart. I suspect a dirty filter has burnt out a overheat safety switch. I may have one if you need one. chandler@chandlerrepair.com.

Rinnai 556F Not Exactly and "Energy Saver"...


Raise the thermistor. It is a black rubber probe located on the back of the heater close to the coldest spot in your home, the floor. Raise it a few inches. To do this you will need to unhook it from its holder and open the front of the heater to unravel the extra length of yellow wire.
