Question about Rinnai Heating & Cooling
Is the rinnai 516tr natural gas heater able to be converted to lp gas, is it worth doing? not sure how old
Try national energy they sell convestion kits It would need a gas fitter to do the work , you may need to a quote on this , they would be able to tell you if it is worth it ,its hard to tell with out looking at the heater .

I think you will find the thermocouple or thermostat has gone this allows the gas valve to open and is a saftey device to stop the escape of dangerous fumes .. it looks like a long piece of thin copper wire approx 4mm thick and it extends from the main valve into the pilot light flame .. When the ignition is pushed and you hold your finger on it for a while this tells the the valve that the pilot light is lit .. conduction of heat along this pipe then opperates the diaphram in the valve allowing the gas to the burners the pilot light then ignites them .. if the pilot light goes out the unit will nort run ..
My advice to you is that even though you may be conversant with the heater .. they do tend to have all manner of faults occur when left in storage or if shipped ( jostling and bumping ) is to get a trained gas engineer to check it out it may cost a bit .. but a gas escape and the following reprocussions are far more exspensive and costly .. Also You may not be aware that if you do have an incident your house ,insurance may be null and void if no service documents can be raised for the correct servicing of a fixed or mobile gas Convector .. I hope this helps Regards Vortash
