SOURCE: Problem with the Rinnai RHFE-1004FAP

Hello
There should be a condensation line connected to the flue running into a pump or floor drain.or possibly a internal heater to disapate it.

Beacause the heater reuses the gas there is alot of moisture in natural gas,thay needs to be drained from the flue.

Sounds like this condensate line is either clogged or frozen or both.Yes your going to need to thaw the flue out.Before you do this turn off all gas and electric to the heater,we do not want it to start.

A hair dryer may do the trick,to help thaw the ice off.If you can locate the drain line for the flue and thaw it out and clean it out.Check that all filters are clean and in place before starting up.

Also check outside that nothing is driping onto the flue from the roof or a tree.


I found a link with your owners manual.
Hope ive helped.

Testimonial: "GREAT ANSWER --- used a hair dryer on the outside flue (after it had been in sun a few hours (luckily flue is on south side of house) Started by turned gas/elec off, then chip'd most of ice off, then gave it high heat till water started drip'g out of flue (~2-3 mins), then went back inside and turned gas/elec back on and started heater --after repeating this process a few times (3?) heater stayed on and we had heat !!!! Sorry for not writing sooner.... but want to let you know that we had the 'opportunity' to reapply your solution twice more during last winter - worked great both times !! "

Allheaters run off of a thermostat just like the heat to your house. It will shut off once heated to the selected temperature. Turn up the temperature, and monitor it for a couple days.

Are the heater core hoses getting hot? That could be a blockage in the intake manifold or engine block. Is the blend door sticking? That would be one item that would make for lukewarm air if the hoses feel nice and hot when up to operating temperature.

SOURCE: Overheating problem

i had something similar once, it ended up being the intake radiator hose, it has a metal coil inside, mine was broken and when you revved the motor it would **** the hose shut and overheat, but under 2000 rpm it was fine .

I have a triangle tube challenger boiler. D.W & radiant. It has a drop in temperature about 1.5 -3 min. after turning water on. In shower and in sinks. Was able to watch tank and feel water from laundry...


A lot depends on the size of the tank. And when it heats some systems only heat at night , this is ok if the system is large , on most heaters there is a thermostat on the side that can be used to set to a higher temp. the thermostat on your heater may be faulty.

Underfloor Radiant Heating works great with a Geothermal Heat Pump


Radiant floor heating has been the standard for comfort and efficiency for many years. The feeling of having a warm floor under your bare feet is priceless. Rolling on the floor while playing with your children or grandchildren is great when it is cold outside and the floor is pleasantly warm.

Geothermal Heat Pumps usually are associated with hot air heating and air conditioning systems. If you live in a climate that very seldom needs air conditioning, then you need to concentrate more on the heating. There is a super way to use geothermal technology to give you very efficient and comfortable heating. Underfloor radiant heating can very easily be incorporated with a geothermal heat pump to give you the best of both comfort and efficiency.

Here are some thing’s that you do have to consider before deciding on a system like this.
You will need to drill a few wells to extract the heat from the ground.
Piping must be installed in the wells correctly for the system to work properly.
You will need a heat pump designed for hot water heating.
You can not use a heat pump that is designed for hot air use and convert it for radiant heating.
The radiant heat design must be designed to use water temperatures that are cooler than that of many radiant heat systems.
The maximum temperature design should be 130 degrees F.
To get this kind of design to work correctly for you, you will need to use good quality heat plates and insulated under the heat plates.
By following these guidelines I have designed a number of radiant heating systems that have proven to heat houses very comfortably at temperatures well below zero.

If you decide on installing this type of system make sure that your installer knows exactly what they are doing. This type of system requires many things to be done exactly right, so that the water flows will allow the system to work correctly. The piping on the well side is extremely critical so that it uses all the wells equally. On the house side the piped using a primary/secondary piping scheme. Pumps and pipe sizes need to be able to give you very high flow rates so that the temperature drop is kept to ten degrees or less. When working with these low temperatures the piping and pumping becomes so much more critical.

By using these principles you can combine two very great heating types and can have a very good heating system that will perform very well for many years. The main drawback with this type of system is that you do not have the ability to get much cooling from this system. This is probably the only drawback of this type of system. It would be wondeful if there was a geothermal unit that was heating only. The elimination of the reversing valve would be a great cost savings and a plus overall. This system is best suited for cooler climates that require little or no air conditioning.

Underfloor Radiant Heating for Your New Sunroom


You want to add a brand new sunroom onto your existing house. The problem is that you are not sure how to heat it. Electric heating with baseboard heaters will spoil the look that you want from your new room. Hot water baseboard is going to present all types of problems getting hooked in to the existing system and piping it. And, if you have hot air heating system then you will have the problem of getting ductwork to the room. There is another way to heat this room easily and efficiently.

Radiant heating has been one of the most comfortable and efficient ways for heating for many years. The problem has been in the past to find a good heating source for small radiant floors that will be affordable, effective and efficient.

This problem has been solved now, with the availability of small new electric combination heater- circulator units. These units use small electric heating elements together with a small circulator pump to give you a all in one heating source and circulator pump.

Now you just have to lay your tubing in the floor of the room you are adding on to your house. Then you run that tubing into your existing basement or other room in your house. The tubing and the electric are attached to the heating unit. Then, wire a thermostat to the unit, and you are now ready to make heat. This really makes heating a new addition room very inexpensive and easy to do.

The greatest thing about using this type of heating system is that most average do-it-yourself types can do this. All that is needed is a basic knowledge of plumbing and electric.
If you are thinking of building that little add-on and are worried about how you will heat it, think about using radiant floor heat and a small electric heater-circulator to do your project.
