SOURCE: Rinnai R50LSi water heater- Water doesn't heat.

Flow meters can get jammed by silt or debrise. The only way that I know to check this problem it to remove & inspect the part and that takes alot of training if you have a Rinnai (not recommended for the beginner).

One thing you could check is the inlet screen. Turn off the water and power to the unit and drain down. The screen in the black plastic circle on the inlet fitting under the unit. Unscrew this and check how much grit it has collected. Clean off, replace, turn water back on, open a hot faucet to get the air out then turn the power back on. This sometimes improves the flow enough to solve the problem.

SOURCE: We have a Rheemglas Standard Electric Water Heater

if your water heater is leaking from the tank, and not around any fitting, then you will need to replace the heater.
you can flush the heater, once a year is always recommended, however once every 2 years is sufficient.

scale, and deposites inside the tank will cause erosion and eventually eat through the walls of the tank. not much you can do to prevent this. the steel in the new tanks just don't last like they ued to.

this is a tricky one, it means no ignition,which could just be a dirty flame sensor, low gas pressure, or no spark to ignite the burner. sorry but this one requires a rinnai trained service man

I bled my oil burner hot water heater but its not firing up. It starts but then shuts down and the green light starts blinking. What do i do?


The blinking light indicates a problem. Even the number of blinks in a short period point to different sorts of problems within a Brand. It is best practice to indicate brand and model when making a query. Error codes differ between brands. It could be anything from a problem with a thermostat, filter problem, or crack in a tank. However, here is a generic diagnostic procedure: http://inspectapedia.com/heat/Oil_Burner_Wont_Run.php

Don't risk scalding yourself.

Tip

Combi Boilers Waste Energy


Combination boilers are called just that because they combine your hot water production and your space heating together with one boiler. The problem lies in the way that they produce hot water. To make the water hot, these boilers have a coil inside the chamber that the water for the space heating is held. The heat is transferred through the copper coil wall from the one water to the other.

The heat transfer of the efficiency of the transfer is not the problem. The problem is that you have to keep the boiler hot all of the time to make sure that you will have heat to make the water hot when you need it. To compound the problem you will find that boilers are typically very poorly insulated. The amount of heat that you will lose because of this poor insulation is unbelievable.

You have or are thinking about buying a Combi Boiler. Read this first because I will explain to you why you either have or are going to make a very big mistake.

Rather than go with this method of water heating, set up your boiler with a separate zone for an indirect water heater. Indirect hot water heaters transfer heat just as effectively, and they are usually very well insulated. The temperature drop in these indirect tanks is typically less than 1 degree F per hour. That’s not very much!

Keep in mind that even though this setup may cost you a bit more up front, that in the long run you will be saving more everyday. With the price of heating fuels going up daily you can bet that the indirect tank will pay for its self in a very short period of time.

Why the hot water temperature couldn't reach the set temperature (130 degree) in Amtrol WHS80Z indirect water heater?


I have a couple of thoughts. You may have air in the boiler water circuit at the loop that feeds the tank. You'll have to find the vent in the loop to get it out. Second, the automatic valve that opens for hot water may not be opening fully. Have you felt both the boiler water lines that go in and out of the tank? If the water going in is hot and the line out is very cold you have very little boiler water going through the loop. Make sure the isolation valves on the loop are open. Is your boiler full of water? If the boiler loop lines are hot going in and coming out, the tank is full of rust or debris and no water can get to the fins on the internal tubing to pick up heat. If that's the case there is no repair and its time to get a new tank. Hope this helps good luck.

THE HEAT GOES OFF AFTER A FEW MINUTES,,is this normal?


It's only normal, if the heater reached the temperature level you have it set on. More than likely, the heater over heat switch shut the heater down. If that's the case, the heating element may simply need cleaning.

You can accomplish this by turning the unit OFF & Unplugging it. The heater element is under the stove and can be cleaned with a vacuum that has a hose and brush attachment. Even a crevice tool will help. The heaters over a short period of time, can get clogged with dust, lint, pet hair, etc. Keeping them clean will lengthen the longevity of the heater.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know.

The water gets too hot and trips the reset on the thermostat.


Two possibilities. 1 failed upper or lower Tstat 2 Shorted element
To test element: disconnect both wires to element terminals. use continuity tester to see if there is continuity through element (one probe on each element terminal) If no continuity element is bad. Then test for continuity between each element terminal and the water heater itself.( one probe on element terminal and one probe grounded on bare metal or inner tank.) If there is continuity from terminal to ground, element is bad and also can cause tank to continue heating even when thermostat shuts off. This is because the thermostat only shuts off one pole of the 220 and a shorted element can continue heating from the 2nd pole.
If both elements test OK and water heater heats the full tank( tank feels hot at bottom element access panel when no hot water for 2 hours) most likely the lower thermostat is bad.
