SOURCE: Rinnai burner goes out when ignition button is released

The thermocouple [s] require replacement, or in my experience try servicing the unit first. There is an injector for the main pilot and a secondary injector for the flame thrower ignition. Both of these are prone to blocking due to dust and can be enough to shut the unit down. Although usually this is thermocouple related as you are manually keeping the unit running when you hold down the button, if the tcouple is broken it wont send enough millivolts to hold the magnetic valve open when you release the button.
Cheers

How do I fix the heater? The igniter will not stay on long. The heater never reaches desired temperature.


Try turning it off and unplugging it for 30 seconds. If that doesnt work, some people I know had to melt ice from their vents with a blow dryer. If not call a technician. Error codes should be in the manual. http://www.rinnai.us/customer-care/manuals-literature

I have a rinnai energy saver 556f our power blew out and it knocked out all our appliances.i am trying to get my rinnai to stay lite but the pilot wont stay on.it goes on for about 3 seconds and then cuts...


Patrick,

Your 556 does not have a pilot light. When you try to start look into the window, you should see an arcing, this is the igniter. With a power outage there is no telling what may have happened. With only limited knowledge of a gas heater you should call a Rinnai service guy.

Good luck,

Tom

Rinnai reu-56es. cant get the pilot to light.... testing unit before water lines are permanently connected all filters are clean and wiring seems ok. just exhaust fan wires are not connected . how would i...


To test the thermocouple you will need to heat the tip with a lighter and use fluke meter to test the millivoltage being produced by it. To purge the unit of air shut off the gas line valve. Disconnect the connecter on the unit. And turn on the valve just slightly for a few seconds and release a little bit of gas. Be very careful doing this!!! Make sure there are no sources of ignition nearby. A few seconds of bleeding should be enough to clear out any air in the gas line. Then re-connect and tighten connector using two wrenches(one for a backup) then turn thee valve back on and listen/smell for any gas and soap fittings to check for leaks. After the air is clear if this is a manually set pilot then push the ASO button you use to set the pilot. You may need to hold it for a minute to make sure all the air goes thru the pilot. Then light the pilot while holding the ASO button in. You may need to hold this for a minute or two. When you let go it should stay lit. Look for a strong pilot flame that is blue not yellow and is making proper impingment with the thermocouple/pilot generator head assembly. You will not be able to fully test this unit without the water on due to this unit works off of a pressure/flow switch and the burner will not come on if it does not have water flowing. If it is not electric ignition and the pilot is lit manually then you should be able to light the pilot and have it stay on.

How can I stop airbag warning light flashing continuously on my Nissan Tiida


Try this:
5. If “AIR BAG” warning lamp operates as [as I said before], turn ignition switch “OFF” to reset from Diagnosis mode
1. Turn ignition switch “ON”.
2. After “AIR BAG” warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, [i.e. when it stops running solid and starts flashing] turn ignition switch “OFF” within 1 second. [DO NOT SWITCH IT TO LOCK, SWITCH IT TO ACC]
3. Wait more than 3 seconds.
4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 two times. (Perform 3 times in total.)
5. Turn ignition switch “ON”.
SRS is now in Diagnosis mode.
Try it a few times. If you can't get it to work, have someone else try. If you STILL can't get it to work, check your battery voltage. It might be low.
In diagnosis mode, you're going to hope the light flashes slowly. 2 seconds off, 3 seconds on, and repeats. If your light does this, this means that the computer detected a previous error that hasn't been erased. This is good.
to User mode and to erase the memory of the malfunction.
6. Turn ignition switch “ON”. “AIR BAG” warning lamp operates in
User mode. [it should stay on for 7 seconds, then go off, like normal.]
