All thermocouple leads have two ends.
One end has the elongated bulb that the pilot light heats up, other end is stubby and threaded, which screws into the gas valve.
Locate valve and pilot, remove bad one, reinstall new one.
This is also the same for all gas waterheaters, ranges, and any appliance that has a steady pilot.
But, sometimes it's the valve. That requires further testing with a meter for 400 to 700 Mili-amp-hrs output or using the magnetic spring loaded solenoid from gutting out an old gas valve.
Piping of these heaters in tandem is critical. Specified by Rinnai in their design manual, the cold water should be piped to both water heaters with a back-flow presenter installed before the first heater. The hot out piping should be "Tee-d" together and going to your hot water needs. If piped as per the manual, try turning the water off to only one of the units. Turn on a hot water tap and see if the unit stays on without interruption. Then try the same on the second unit. You may find that one unit has a bad flow control, which is shutting off the flow of water. You can get more technical help y contacting Rinnai direct at 1-800-621-9419 ext. 207.
Question, is there any other equipment that uses propane? You indicate that the problem started after a delivery of propane after running out. If so, I suspect a blockage in either the gas train or the rinnai itself. If tou have the temperature control that regulates the water temperature, you can recall error codes to pinpoint the issue. They are optional equipment so if you can wire one in or ask your propane gas supplier if their service department has one, it will aide in the diagnosis.
