Behind the unit near the floor level, is a yellow wire with a black bulb at the end. This is the actual sensor for returning air. If there is cool air infiltrating the area where it is located, it will keep the unit running until the return air reaches temperature. You could also have a bad sensor but highly unlikely. Make sure there is no air infiltration influencing the sensor. Also, you can unclip the sensor and pull out a few more inches of wire to locate it higher up away from the floor. Tie it up with a wire tie.
Rinnai it testing a remote thermostat but as of yet, there is no plans to offer one.

yes you can, but is complicated, involves changing injector, burner, and reprogramming the PCB for the new gas type. Get a pro to do it for you

The Rinnai's temperature probe is located very low (about 2" off the floor} and is telling you what temperature the floor is. There are two things you can do. Remove the front cover and look for a yellow wire wrapped up with a black plastic tie. Remove it from the tie and feed out some extra wire to the back of the heater. Next take off the right side trim panel closest to the wall. You will find a yellow wire with a black rubber tip clipped into a black plastic holder. Un-secure the probe and relocate it higher up in the back of the heater. Do not place it near the cloth and metal vent pipe. It is OK to place it near the corrugated gray plastic pipe. This will give the probe a better sample of the room air. The second way is to insulate the wall behind the heater so that the probe will not be effected by cold air infiltrating from the wall. If this does not help the situation, replace the probe called a thermistor. I can send you one for $25.00 if you find you need one. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

You may have a bad circuit board. Depending upon the age of the heater it may still be under warranty. Contact Rinnai (in US) 800-621-9419 with your serial number and installation date. Ask if they can offer a solution. Good Luck!

Hold the lock button down for approximately one second to switch between locked and unlock. If it is locked when you turn it on you will need to do this first
