I have a Rinnai 516TR showing error code 62


Error Code 62, indicates a faulty fan motor. Which, according to your Owner's Manual, requires a service call by an authorized Rinnai service technician. it may not mean replacing the fan motor. It could also mean a faulty fan sensor.

Hope this helped you. Cheers.

Our Rinnai convector unflued room heater won't start. Lights just flash heat never comes on.


According the the Owner's Manual for your Rinnai Convector Heater, there are 8 things, than can cause what you described. Two of which can be discounted, unless you just had the heater installed.

I have provided a link to the Owner's Manual, that you can download and print for future reference. Please pay close attention to Page # 6 -Pre-Service Check List and Fault Finding. Each problem listed has a troubleshooting solution.

# 11 appears when it trys to start...... not heating


Code # 11 indicates an Ignition Failure. According to the Owners Manual you should do the following: Check that gas is turned ON. Check that the vent termination is not blocked. Refer to the Restart Function explanation.

RESTART FUNCTION:

If the appliance fails to ignite, the appliance will attempt ignition after 1 hour. The "Ignition Failure" fault code, 11, will appear during that hour and disappears after a successful ignition. If ignition fails again, then the fault code will remain and another attempt to ignite will occur in 1 hour. The fault code is not stored in the fault code history.

If the flame is extinguished during forced combustion then the appliance will attempt ignition after 1 hour. The "Ignition Failure" fault code, # 11 will appear during that hour and disappears after a successful ignition. Forced combustion takes place for about 15 seconds after ignition. After this time, the temperature control logic controls the combustion.

If the flame is extinguished (burner combustion failure) while the temperature control logic is operating the appliance, then the appliance will immediately attempt ignition. No fault code will appear.

In this problem repeats itself, contact you local Rinnai Authorized dealer/serviceman.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

OUr Rinnai gas heater convector 516tr keeps on turning itself off and flashes 12 on the light panel. What does that mean and how to fix it? tks


Hi.

12 flashes means "Incomplete combustion". The code is prompted when the flame turns off because of a problem.

Check filter, check gas pressure and thermocoupling. Those are the problem that commonly trigger the code 12 error.

Here a manual.

Here Fixya thread on the problem.

Hi i have a rinni convector 516tr heater i put it on it switches off a few seconds later i think it has to do with the timers i have lost the book/


I am assuming this is a tankless heater. Are you turning the water on full throttle and is there full flow. First thing to check is the small filter screen on the inlet of the water heater. If the flow is reduced the water heat will not fire.

Error code 11 on a Rinnai energysaver 556FTR


Rachel,

The 11 code means Missed Ignition. This is a broad error code. It just means the stove did not light when it was supposed to. I would check the fuel first to be sure the valve is on and you have gas. Next, try to start the stove with the room dark. Look into the window to confirm a sparking. This is the igniter. At the same time be sure the combustion motor is running. You should be able to hear it and feel the stove to confirm this. If the motor does not turn or the flue is blocked you will not get any gas to flow. Look outside to confirm the flue is not blocked.

Keep us posted,

Tom

Hi - I have a Rinnai Convector 406 gas heater which is 2 years old. Yesterday, it started cutting out with an error code of "12" showing in the display. It can be re-started but only stays on for a few...


I believe the 12 is the error code for "incomplete combustion". In this case you will want to start with the thermocouple. If you are not handy at these things I would call a service tech. You can find a service person on their website.
