You are not getting gas for some reason. Check the valve to make sure it is getting power to open the solenoid. It may need to be set to on. If you are getting power to the valve and its not getting gas, check the orifice. Sometimes a spider or other bug will get in there and plug it up. Its a very small hole, so it wont take much to block it.

SOURCE: Rinnai EnergySaver 556F Heater flashes

I'm picking up a faint propane scent when the heater is completely turned off. When I turn the heater on it lights fine so I don't suspect it's the pilot light. Is this an issue with the installation of the fuel line, or could it still be the pilot? Any ideas on troubleshooting the source?

SOURCE: rinnai energysaver 557ftr keeps switched itself

An H12 indicates a flame failure, which could be caused by an obstruction in the combustion chamber, buildup of debris on the flame rod, not enough or no fuel, or no spark at the igniter. You may wish to get a technician in and look at these. One thing I have found is that spiders love to webs in the burners of these heaters and the only way to check it out is to disassemble the entire burner.

SOURCE: 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.

My rinnai energysaver 1001ft will not turn on.It has power to it but it will not power up when switched on.no lights no go.HELP;;


Hello Mark Obrien,

I searched the internet trying to get a HIT from your
rinnai+energysaver+1001ft

and all combinations there-of...

I also went on-line to a MAJOR RETAILER site & poured over their inventory of systems and parts (see below)...
Alpine Home Air Products Contractor grade furnaces heaters air...

Nothing... so:
Assuming you are talking about a heater here


If you are seeing no "lights"...
perhaps checking the SECONDARY side of your
POWER TRANSFORMER would be the best advice...

If that has the required (typically 24 volt output)
continue on to your main control board...
(looking for the Typical FUSE (usually 5 AMP)...

If the fuse is OPERATED... replace it...
f it operates again... IT is time to consider purchasing that
SPARE MAINBOARD you always wanted...

Like a YORK furnace... (verify your OWN NUMBERS)

How to install


Unfortunately, the installation of one of these units is not quite as simple as 1, 2, 3.

So, I am providing a couple links on the installation process. You can download and print each one.

The first is the Flue Installation Guide.
http://www.rinnai.com.au/images/stories/operating_instructions/Heating/Energysaver/CI_ES_Flue_Inst_Manual.pdf

The second is the Operation Guide, which also deals with proper installation.
http://www.rinnai.com.au/images/stories/operating_instructions/Heating/Energysaver/CI_ES_Flue_Inst_Manual.pdf

The third is the exploded parts view & parts diagram, Which you may need in the future.

I hope all of this information will help you properly install the unit.

Rinnai energysaver 556f manual


Here is a link to the 556FTR from Australia.
They are all pretty much the same. The US site has similar info. Just google Rinnai. Open the site, go to resources tab and click downloads. The manuals are easy to locate.

My tank says I have 32 gallons left but the heater won't work (rinnai 556f). It turns on for about 15 seconds and the light on the power button turns red and starts blinking. What does this mean?


If you hold down the economy button and the up and down arrow buttons for 5 seconds the unit will start an error code display. Get a helper and yell out the numbers when they start blinking. Post the error codes and we can help you

Rinnai Energysaver 1001F - Turn on, ignites, blows + powers off


Try disconnecting the unit and thoroughly cleaning the dual walled intake and vent pipe that goes through the wall. Use a small brush to make sure the passages are free from any obstructions. These units have safety mechanisms that are very sensitive and sometimes will shut off when something as seemingly insignificant as a leaf or spider web creates a slight blockage. A yearly inspection and clean out are necessary.

Check for a blockage in the heat exchanger. Spiders love to make nests in these units. Remove the front cover and the two rectangular viewing ports on the front of the heat exchanger. Watch as the unit ignites. There are three burners you need to watch and the first one is in the center and hard to see. If there is flame but it goes out quickly, you have a blockage in the unit. Check the venting to make sure it is clear of debris.
