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 rennai energysaver 556ftr heater, and the filter and on light keeps flashing red, i've taken out the filter and cleaned it, but still the lights are flashing. what's wrong?


If you removed the filter to clean it, while the unit was ON, that may be the problem. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from wall outlet. Leave unplugged for 15 minutes. Remove and replace the filter. After 15 minutes has elapsed, plug the unit into the wall outlet and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The unit should have reset itself and reverted back to the original factory default settings. In which case, you can change the settings to what you desire.

Just remember to always turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF, when removing the filter to clean and replace it.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

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.

Fault 14 on rinnai energysaver 556ftr


Hi.

Error code 14 is Overheating error.

The error can be caused by the high limit sensing overheating and cutting off. In that case the thermal fuse may not blow. The high limit can be reset tripping circuit breaker and allowing the unit to cool down with power off.

If that does not work , then the thermo fuse has blown

In fact tis unit has a thermo fuse. (refer to manual).The thermal fuse can be tested reading continuity. If thermal fuse has blown, then replace the the thermo fuse. If the thermo fuse blows again, then there is a condition causing overheating. b260351.gif

Here Full service manual.


Unless you are a trained technician call Rinnai support ringing the number in the manual. Some of testing and repair operations described are not suitable for the home user.

Regards.

Ginko.

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

Our heater 556ftr is got a code error flashing, 14


I found the manual on the net and it said error code 14 is overheating, it suggests to clean the filter, but my filter was clean, so I'm wondering if my flue has been installed incorrectly. On mine the error code is staying on after switching the power off and on, so this means my thermal fuse has blown.
