Hooking up Tandem Rinnai R94 LSi

Hi we need to connect our two Rinnai R94 LSi in tandem. DO you have a diagram on how it should be done? On a prior post I noticed you stated we would need a master controller or panel. Where do we find these?

    Thanks. Over the weekend while searching the net I found a technical web page from Rinnai and it had most of the information I needed including schematics. They have their own controllers integrated into the newer units and some you just have to use a link cable.

Have 2 Rheem 50 gal NG water heaters in tandem. Neither pilot will stay lit. They are 17 years old and never had this problem before

the most common problem is the thermocouple being busted. If thats not the case then the gas valve may be busted but that isn't very common.

Eitherway this required the burner being taken out so I wouldn't recommend anyone to do this who isn't a proffessional.

Hi, our plumber has hooked up a new infinity xr-26 but the existing remotes don't work. He says it's a simple 2 wire connection but ther's no cirrcuit

Check with Rinnai to see if the old remotes are compatible with the new heater. Might mean upgrading the remotes too but the wires should be OK. Double check that he has actually connected the wires to the heater. Rinnai in Australia recentyl changed the connection point for the wiring. I can help further with this if this is the issue (not sure where you are!)

Here are two links to get the manual for your unit. Since I don't have the model number for your unit, you can find this in one of the two links. If you have the manual, you will know if you are skipping a step or not. If you have done everything, then I would call Rinnai to find an authorized tech for your appliance. Hope this helps.
