Question about Rinnai Unvented Gas Zone Heater. 99% fuel efficient: Blower with Thermostat

1 Answer

Rinnai fan stops turning.

I have an old rinnai wall heater in my home and the rotory fan at the base of it keeps cutting out. If I reach into it and spin it manually it will runf for maybe 10 - 20 minutes but then cut out again. Is it easy to remove and clean all the dust build up out?

You can reach the fan wheel by using a can of compressed air normally used to clean your compute keyboard. Make sure you hold a vacuum wand close to the heater when doing this to collect the debris. Using a small coffee stir straw, lubricate the end of the fan motor shaft with light motor oil. This will keep the motor alive for a bit longer.

Rinnai R85 starts to warm then stops and blinks 61??

I went to the Rinnai website and this is what I found for error code 61.
Error Code 61 Problem: Fan failure
Solution: Measure the resistance on the fan motor, check the damaged or loose wiring and connections. Make sure that the fan spins freely.
Sounds like either your fan is broken or something is keeping it from spinning freely.
Hope this helps.

Need pilot light assembly for Rinnai gas heater model #REH-25-P

Unfortunately, Rinnai only sells repair parts through their authorized dealers. Contact the dealer you purchased it from. If you are not the original owner of the home/heater, you can go to Rinnai's website and search for a dealer near you. http://www.rinnai.us/direct-vent-wall-furnaces/

I have a rinnai heater and it stopped working all

rinnai, toyostove and monitor heaters are basically all the same. first you have to make sure your fuel valve is open at the tank. next you have to reset the tank lockout on the sump. then set your set point higher than your room temperature. now press on. the unit will go through a 300 second purge cycle. the pot heater should turn on when the purge cycle starts. after the purge cycle the fuel pump turns on and pumps fuel into the pot. when it vaporizes the igniter lights it. when a flame is detected the flame rod says ok to keep running so the fuel pump shifts into high speed. when plenum temperature reaches a preset level the fan turns on.
