    Rinnai at 800 621-9419. They have them. Drop me your email address and I will send you the troubleshooting pages on this model heater. That unit has not been manuf since '96. It is the two stage model (12,000and 36,500 on LP) Where are you located? Who said it was the slide potentiometer?

    Jack...just the guy...

    I was hoping to reply.  I am in NH.  A local LP company who originally was doing work there told the HO that this was the problem.... they will not return her calls to fix the issue. She called me. If i can't find the issue we are looking at a replacement.... that would be a shame.

    I sent

    you the pages on the 1001 FA/VA. I don't have them electronically, so photographed them and sent that way. Let me know if there are any issues. After 15 yrs there may be some parts that are going nla, but I bet N&S have them in Portland.

    that is the old two stage unit. It will fire at 50% of capacity and go from there. There are three flame rods, one for each burner. The front center FR is for low fire. As you know any one of the flame rods can knock it out. How is it behaving? Will it fire and go off or not fire at all.

    I have a 1001 that I've run since '93. At first it was in the house, then heated the basement and then the garage. I brought it with me from MA when I moved last year. It is now running at my daughters house out here.

    I would suggest at this point that when you are there, give a close look at the house blower wheels. I bet they need a good cleaning.

    You have my number. Call if I can help.
