Customer Question

Hi i have a Rinnai energy saver 550f 1416 which wont turn on. The light doesnt light up and there is no flame.
Have tried pulling it apart and clearing the flame sensor rod and vaccuuming the dust inside the heater unit. Nothing seems to be running. No fans, no flame, no heat

hi well it sounds like your your fuseable link has blown since no operation at all ...if it were flame failure then it would re set after turn on and off but if link goes ithas to be serviced bye a service rep. so did unit get realy hot before this happened ?? because they work with over heat switch but it is a back up safty it usaly does not blow but is only thing that will make total no work other than no power to unit ?? ty\

well withthat going on then it would diffintly have to be serviced bye a service rep call your dealer or look online to find one but if you have been tapping to get to work there is somthing not making good connection circut so it will warrant a service call ty good luck
