Since, your Rinnai Heater is Vent-free, it can not be converted to a Vented Unit. The design does not allow it. Even if you could, the efficiency rating would drop tremendously. Not sure that you'd want to do that, with the price of gas being what it is, now.

My gas wall heater only stay lit for about 5mins. Easy to restart.


First thing to try is to check the flue to see if it is blocked or even partially blocked. This type of flue assembly exhausts burnt gases from the heater and another section draws fresh air in to the heater to be mixed and burnt with the gas.
the centre of the flue is the exhaust section and the outer section of the flue is the fresh air intake section.
removing the flue cowl will allow a visual inspection of the flue for any blockages.
If the flue is a long run then a plumber may need to be called to disassemble the flue for a closer inspection.

Can a Rinnai 556FTR (2010) flue be converted from straight out the wall - to out a chimney?


No, Rinnai manufacture other models with a conventional flue.
Most models these days are balanced flue for ease of installation.

I have a rinnai 1001ft heater but i need the flue is there enyone that has one please


You should be able to get the flue kit from any Rinnai resellers.


There are many different flueing options existing for Rinnai Energysaver depending on where you wish to install it (by a licensed gas fitter only of course).

Depending on what flue kit you need for your own situation you could be looking anywhere between $150 to $800 (AUD).

Go on their website for a list of resellers.

Have inherited a Rinnai energysaver 1001 FT gas heater - need an exhaust manifold


Found a link to the service manual for starters

The flue system looks very similar to some current models. I'd go to Rinnai direct and try and get a list of local service agents who can order the bits in. The flues are very tricky to order because there are so many different bits depending on where you need it to run so order carefully.

Code 99 flash after 5 min and then turn off


Flue block or venting disconnected. You could be getting cross contamination or the flue termination could be iced up. Check it out closely. There is also a recall from Rinnai for a retrofit kit. Contact your gas service provider with the serial number of the unit and they will tell you if yours is under the recall.

Can you vent the Rinnai 551F vertically through ceiling?


This unit can be vented through the roof but requires a specialized flue system-do not use an existing flue connection. Call a contractor - have them check and see if the unit can be modified to a vertical flue- it will require the existing piping to be replaced--Not a job for a do-it yourselfer

Need to move the unit by dismantling


Remove the two screws on the side trim. Remove the two top screws from the filter panel. Reach behind the heater and pull the sock down on the vent pipe. unclip the two clamps holding the vent pipe together. Remove the plastic elbow off of the vent termination. Slide the heater to the left to slide the vent pipe off of the vent termination. Remove the gas line after shutting the gas off.

Replacing a Rinnai 403 FT


gday nelson. if you check out the specs on the rinnai range you will find another one that will go straight in. if you buy new it will come with a new flue kit. as far as recomended installation heights most of them are quite flexible. i installed a second hand 403ft yesterday with the centre of the flue at 140mm from the floor. recomended in the instructions were 240mm. a mate gave me the heater and i just had to buy a flue kit as the old one was already too short. if you messure your flue from inside and send me the specs i can give you a more difinitive answer.
