Intex Chlorinator Problem: After holding down left arrow and it beeps, i set hours on timer and then it blinks with that number for about 2 minutes and goes to CODE 94=not operating.

First make sure the pump is running and water is flowing through the clorinator. (wont work if water isnt flowing). Make sure water is going in the right direction. (into chlorinator on the right side from the pump, and out of the chlorinator on the left side). The timer controls can be touchy.Try increasing the hours by holding the up arrow until the time is one hour more than you want, then use the down arrow to get it back to the time you want. Sometimes it wont cooperate with increasing the time and just stays at 1 hour, so you have to keep trying a few times.

Have a Rinnai thru-the-wall 1001f. Has run flawlessly for over 15 years until now. When the heater runs, it runs fine. But we find the heater is turning itself off more and more lately. On the front panel...

I had the same very exact problem and got my hands on the service manual for the Rinnai 1001 series heater to solve it. As fas as the spark gap it should be 3mm but I went through a lot of tests of the components and found that Solenoid 1 coil was open. It should read about 1.3K and mine was completely open. Solenoid 1 is the one against the back cover. You'll need a small inspection mirror to see it but it is part number C23B-23. REMOVE POWER/UNPLUG FROM THE WALL FIRST then pull the plugs off all of them and check the resistance of the coils, they all should be about 1.2-1.3K. If you havent already found the answer I hope this helps.
Also check the pressure switch, bottom right side in the front. Its a disk, diaphram type device about 4 inches in diameter with a microswitch on it. That switch should close, zero to 1 volts across it, once the combustion fan starts up and builds a little pressure. If it doesnt it could be the switch or the intake or exhaust parts of the flue or filters are clogged.

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

The boiler just wont start up, possibly the pilot light??

You probally just picked up enough dirt to clog the filter enough to shut the heater down. If the water flow slows enough the heater will boil the water inside it You have a presure switch in the heater to avoide this. All you probally have to do is clean the filter and baskets to get enough flow to start it again.

How can i determine if my water chlorinator on my well water conditioning system is functioning properly ?

I expect this is a tablet style chorinator, if so look to see if the chlorinator is using chlorine tablets. These chloriantors work off a run time clock tied to the well pump; when the well pump runs the timer within the chlorinator is energized, after a predetermined amount of "run time" the chlorinator drops a tablet. If you feel it is not operating properly I'd bring in a water well professional; remember we are speaking of the aquifer, too much chlorine in your water may affect your neigborhood.
I hope this may have helped,

You have a bad switch at the brake pedal. Or a loose wire. Try light pulling on the wires on the switch at the brake pedal under the dash. They should be tight and secure. If tight and secure the switch could be bad.
