Most all regulators require a differential in pressure to work. To get a differential, you need to have gas pressure on one side of the diaphragm and atmosphere pressure on the other side. If you have high moisture, you can either effect the differential pressure, cause a freezing condition in the regulator in cooler weather or subject the regulator to premature failure due to corrosion. You did not explain if this is going to be used in a high moisture area or not. Can the regulator be vented to a low moisture area?

Our Rinnai Infinity HWS is displaying error message 12 and no hot water is available


The following could cause this. I would call a licensed plumber to fix this issue.

Check that the gas is turned on at the water heater and gas meter. Check for obstructions in

the flue outlet.

Ensure gas line, meter, and/or regulator is sized properly.

Ensure gas type and pressure is correct.

Bleed all air from gas lines.

Ensure proper Rinnai venting material was installed.

Ensure condensation collar was installed properly.

Ensure vent length is within limits.

Verify dip switches are set properly.

Ensure appliance is properly grounded.

Disconnect keypad.

Disconnect EZConnect™ or MSA controls to isolate the problem.

Check power supply for loose connections.

Check power supply for proper voltage and voltage drops.

Ensure flame rod wire is connected.

Check flame rod for carbon build-up.

Disconnect and reconnect all wiring harnesses on unit and PC board.

Check for DC shorts at components.

Check gas solenoid valves for open or short circuits.

Remove burner plate and inspect burner surface for condensation or debris.

The above is what #12 indicates.

No way to fix it without further hands on investigation. I seriously recommend you call a licensed plumber.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have a Haier Commercial Cool air conditioner, model CPRD12XC7, 12,000 BTU that has 2 hoses off the back and is made to be vented thru a window. I want to install it in a closet with no windows. Can I...

Mark, the two hoses serve different functions (Fresh Air Intake & Hot Air Exhaust). Therefore, they would have to remain separate. Also, Haier does not recommend extending the length of the hoses, to accommodate a specific change in installation. And yes, they can be vented through a wall to the outside. But, you would need to use something similar to a clothes dryer vent termination on the outside. Most exterior dryer vent terminations have insect screening and a flap door that opens when air from the dryer pushes it open. This would be fine for the exhaust hose, but not the Air Intake Hose. I guess if you could carefully remove the flap door. it could be used on the Air Intake hose. Also, keep in mind that the unit requires a minimum of one foot air space clearance off the back of the unit, for proper air circulation around the unit. If clothes will be hanging in this closet, that may present an air circulation issue.

Hope this helped you, please let me know. Thanks.

I have a wall mount vent free heater and a 10 gal propane tank how do hook it up so it will work

First off, Dave, the tank cannot be inside the house, motor home, camper, garage, etc. By the way, I believe your 10 gallon tank, is what's called a 40LB cylinder. Anyway, 10 gallons is not going to last very long, if the heater you plan to install is 20,000 Btu output or higher. If it's going in a bedroom, the maximum Btu output can not exceed 10,000 Btu's.

To install one, you'll need 1/2" flexible copper gas piping. An in-line LP Gas regulator, that has the capacity to carry whatever the maximum Btu output of you heater is. In addition, you will need a 1/2 NPT to 3/8" Flare nipple to go into the back of the heater. Assorted Flare Nuts in assorted sizes for the gas line connections.

Tools needed: Flaring tool, 2 adjustable wrenches, Phillips Head Screw Driver & Leak Detector Solution. To make sure it's done correctly, a Mechanical/Plumbing Permit from you city or county's Building Inspection Department. And last, but not least, a friend that has a lot of knowledge in the installation of Vent-free Supplemental Gas Heating Appliances.

If installed properly, these appliances are very safe. If installed improperly, they can be very dangerous.

I have a Marco 972775E model fireplace in my home and I am trying to find out what the lever on the right hand side is for. I have a feeling it may be for a blower but there is not a switch to turn it on....

That lever controls the outside air kit ( if it has one) If it has one, there will be a vent that sort of looks like a dryer vent on the outside of the house. In the up position, its open, lettig in outside air. Supposed to help with combustion. Mine doesnt seem to have an affect on the fire either.

Hello thats ridiculous.Go to any hardware store and ask for 1/4" bird screen and tin snips.Cut out a insert a little bit larger then you need and push it in the pipe (concave).or cover the entire termination outside.It will not affect operation at all,but another mouse will.

Possible remnant foam left in vent from manufacturing process

This needs to be taken out if not it will affect your system. Never cover up the vents on a unit hard on compressor.

Water dripping from vents

The air temperature is cooling the vents below the dew point, make sure the coil and filter are both clean, make sure the fan is clean too, if all of the above are ok it could be you just have a lot of humidity to deal with.

the gas pressure test should be done. Propane should have an outlet(heater side of the regulator)of 7 inches of water column. the inlet side has to be higher than that to supply it the proper pressure. Also the heater should have been converted to LP with proper orfices and springs
