    Yes local gas company can fix it for Aus Dollars $220 and there are still kits available & I paid $85 for the heater, and I would never attempt myself some things are best left to the professionals. I am happy with the outcome hope this may help other people.

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 .

SOURCE: Rinnai 560PTR Heater Converted Propane To Natural Gas No Ingition

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

Yes it Should but you will want to check with manafactuer because it will need a conversion kit for lp gas. Natural gas is a different p.s.i. than lp gas so don't try without conversion kit. It should be just a small fitting that goes inside the gas valve. Hope this helps have a good day

We have a dynna glo zero clearance for Natural Gas


Before you attempt to covert to lp. You need to check the flue. Black smoke is cause by incomplete combustion. So it may be now plug with black soot. Heat-exchanger may be damage Before you invest in a lp kit. Make sure it is worth it. To convert you need the main burner orifices and lp spring for gas value. Once you replace these parts you must adjust gas pressure, nat gas is measured at 3.2 - 3.5wc lp is measured 10.5 - 11.00 wc. In my honest opinion this is to dangerous for customer to attempt. Please a HVAC contractor inspect unit and install lp kit.

Converting Rinnai REH-25-N to LP


Typically, an unvented heater or gas log cannot be converted, mostly for safety reasons and it is usually cost prohibitive. Some newer heaters come with both Natural Gas and Propane components and have to be set up one way or the either.
It would be better to sell your old heater and get one with the proper gas type.
