I have a Rinnai model R53-i-1. When hot is called for, heater turns on and produces a low to loud vibrating noise. It seems to change with water flow use at tap. I called Rinnai, got the name of local guy,...

A low to loud vibrating noise is an indication of an Air /Fuel imbalance . When you flow more water , does the noise become louder ? if so , have a service technician check for pproper incoming gas supply . The requirements are located on the left hand side of the Rinnai unit . There will be a minimum/maximum specification.
Another issue could be the burners being "dirty" and needing to be cleaned .
Also investigate the venting and make sure all joints are sealed properly and the venting is sloped correctly . If you have your installation manual , please refer to the venting section in regards to usage of a condensate collector . This can be a cause of noise .
There is a clear vinyl hose running from the bottom of the heat exchanger to the front of the gas valve . Please inspect this hose for any moisture or signs of staining . This can lead to issues with the gas valve . It must be determined where the moisture is coming from (See previous comment about Condensate collector !) .
The cold water solenoid valve usually has nothing to do with this type of noise .
As far as yourself being able to repair the unit ? I have no idea of your experience but a qualified licensed service technician should be used as this is a gas fired appliance and as such is subject to huge liabilities when being repaired .
Have them call Rinnai Tech Support while on site for any assistance needed.
You shouldn't have to "put upo " with any noise issues . The Rinnai ujnits run at 49 decibals (about the same level as a conversation .
Good Luck !

Cold side of faucet, when turned on, occasionally stops flowing.

Sounds like the valve is comming apart internally. This allows the water to get into places it shouldn't and the water pressure forces the valve closed even though the handle is in the open position. Take it apart and check for loose screws and broken pieces. Lowes or Home Depot should have parts. Don't forget to shut off the valve below the faucet (if the plumber installed one) if not one will have ot shut off incomeing water supply.

Hot or cold water won't come on

If there's no water at all, make these checks:

  • Is there water getting to the machine?
    Check to be sure that someone did not turn off the water, usually the faucet or faucets are on the wall behind the machine.
  • Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?

  • If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown?

  • Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.

Thundering noise coming from hot taps,bath,sink taps...

Sounds to me like you need to have a water hammer device installed into your plumbing, I have only run across this just once before, the noise is very loud and very bothersome, you will need to contact a plumber and have him install a water hammer device into your system, also vibration dampers would probably help as well, if your water lines are running through floor joists and touching them, hope that helps
