Customer Question

I have a rinnai energy saver 1001ft heater that keeps cutting out, filters are clean. It's like the electricity works for a minute but the gas is not coming through then turns of. After about 20 attempts it will start working and then seems to run ok most of the time.

Hello, the problem is in the flame sensing or ignition circuit. Can you tell me exactly in great detail what it does each time on the attempts to fire, does the burner come on at all? do you hear the igniter sparking?

Tell me please a lot about your technical skills background so that I can coach you most effectively.

We can go from there
