    No very slow response. Lower price simply gets a slow response which i thought would be the case in advance. Will be happy to spread the word.

Hi,

According to your problem, first reset the timer properly. May be there is some problem with programming of timer. Check the power cord & electric outlet if there line trips or voltage problem. Check the gas container and gas input. Check also the wire if there is any leakage. If everything OK then after timer turn it off and turn it on again after 2 min.

I have a rinnai energysaver 556f heater and the "On" buttons keeps flashing and it feels like it's blowing cold air. The "LO" button keeps flashing as well. What does this mean?


It is telling you that there is an error code stored in the EPROM. Press and hold the Economy button and the Up and Down arrows for 5 seconds. Get ready to tell an assistant the codes as they pop up. You may have to do this a few times to get them all. Repost the error codes here on Fixya if you don''t have an owners manual to interpret the codes.

I have a Rinnai 556F Heater and I set it to a specific Temperature and a temperature higher is always flashing. What is wrong?


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.

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 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.

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 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.

Rinnai 556F stuck on Low and will not produce heat


The Low code indicates that the heater did not start because of lack of gas or that the flame rod did not sense enough heat. Make sure all gas valves are on and if you use propane gas, that it has gas in the tank.

Assuming all gas is on, you will need to remove the front cover by first pulling off the very bottom trim piece. This is located below the louvers and by grasping both left and right sides of this trim, pull toward you. It is just held in place by little clips. Now taking a very new #2 Philips head screwdriver, remove 2 screws found on the extreme left louvered section of the front. Then 2 more on the extreme right. Two more near the center of the louvers. Now I think there are two more holding the bottom in. Gently move back and forth the front panel starting at the bottom and work out the clips at the top just below the instrument area. Be careful to not break any of the clips at the top. With the front off, at about the 5 o'clock position you will see a very small round hole with glass over it. Start the heater and look to see if it ignites and stays on for a second or two. If it does but goes out very quickly, you may have a corroded flame sensor. The flame sensor is located by looking into the small hole and up to the 11 o'clock position. All it is is a probe that sticks down. The only way to get to it is by removing the small window section of the heater and use a wire brush used to clean a gun and brush it. Or very gently take a thin but long regular screwdriver and scrape off the probe. Be careful not to damage the fragile white gasket when taking off the sight port.

If the heater never started, you have a restriction in the gas train. Typically I find that spiders make a nest inside the gas burner because the bugs they eat likes the gas smell. The only way to get to their web is to remove the burner from the unit and clean it. This is not an easy part to remove and suggest you call a technician.

Good Luck!
