Question about Rinnai RHFE-1004FA 38,400 BTU Energy Saver Ductless Heater - LP Gas

1 Answer

Rinnai RHFE 551 FA-P

This unit has been in an apartment for about 11 years and worked flawlessly until recently. It began failing to ignite but could be manually started for a time. Then that failed. Local technician finally concluded "motherboard" was defective and advised that repair parts are no longer available for that unit. Have just replaced the heater but would like to repair old unit for use elsewhere if parts are available. Please advise. LB

The air filter light is coming on . Can you tell me where the filter is located and the correct way to clean or replace fillter. thank you kev


There are three filters in the RHFE-1004A. The lamp indicates the two air filters need to be cleaned. Turn off the heater. Then pull the filters up from the back of the top of the unit (the side against the wall). Vacuum or dust both sides of each filter. If you notice that the filters are greasy, clean them by washing them quickly with detergent. Rinse the filters completely and then allow them to dry before reinstalling them. (The last filter is above the humidifier water tray.)

The manual for the Rinnai RHFE-1004A is available here: http://www.inglenookenergy.com/rinnai/direct_vent_wall_furnaces/rhfe-1004fa/Owners_Manual_1004.pdf . See page 29 (page 31 of the pdf) for pictures.

I hope this helps.

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.

Rinnai 1004 F Error Code 11


Code 11 is that the unit is trying to light but does not sense a flame after 5 seconds. Usually means you have run out of gas if you are bottled gas. Check your bottles are turned on if you are on LPG, you might need to change over manually. Have you anything else on gas?

I have a rinnai heater 1004F. Since I began using it last month my electric usage is up llKWH per day. I have it set for 60 degrees as I'm using it to take some of the load off my infloor heating system....


The question is, what was you Kw usage same time last year and is the weather warmer or colder than last year? Put an Amp meter on the black wire going to the control board and start the heater. Then check the rating plate on the side of the unit to see if it is within rating.

I have a trouble code 11 on my Rinnai model 2532 water heater which indicates no ignition. I checked for gas supply by turning the furnace on which is approx. 1 ft. away, it works. The water heater is...


11 is a ignition failure code. Could be alot of things, I suggest calling a tech who has repaired these before. Pull the front cover off and have a helper turn on a hot water faucet. Look thru the viewing window to see if the unit is firing then going out. If not, clean out the water filter on the inlet side of the plumbing. You will need to turn off the water supply prior to cleaning it. If the unit fires but shuts off seconds after ignition, you may have a dirty or bad sensor. Call a proffessional at this point. Sorry

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.

Rennai 551 FA-P Never fully shuts off


Hebert,

Is there a chance there is a draft around the room temp probe? It is down low on the right side of the heater. If there is a draft the room sensor is fooled and keeps running the unit. You should be able to prove the room sensor by putting your hand over it after the stove has been running for a while. This should shut the stove down. If not there is a problem with the room sensor.
