SOURCE: Mt Rinnai convector 516tr will not start, have

I have had this problem due to the heater 's combustion sensor concluding that all was not well. In my case, the heater had burned up too much of the available oxygen. I didn't notice the lack myself, so it must be very sensitive. I had shut the place up to keep the heat in and eventually it dawned on me to open a door for a minute or so every half hour or so to replenish the oxygen supply.

The situation is worst when the place is very cold as the heater will roar away trying to heat it up as quickly as possible. After I came back for a holiday in winter, I had to set the temperature down to "L" and "Economy" on plus run an electric fan heater for a day to warm the structure to the point where the gas heater could relax and not burn oxygen faster than it could heat the space.

This happens because the gas is not lit so the heater goes in fault mode. The gas is not lit because either the valve gas doesn't open or the sparker is non-operational - both will have to be checked.
For that download and follow the service manual

506 convector rinnai


if the flame does not start at all, so just ticking from the ignitor you have a main valve problem and this is expensive replacement part and it must be done by a trained gas fitter.

OUr Rinnai gas heater convector 516tr keeps on turning itself off and flashes 12 on the light panel. What does that mean and how to fix it? tks


Hi.

12 flashes means "Incomplete combustion". The code is prompted when the flame turns off because of a problem.

Check filter, check gas pressure and thermocoupling. Those are the problem that commonly trigger the code 12 error.

Here a manual.

Here Fixya thread on the problem.

Flame wont stay lit


Sounds like a flame sensor problem. The board is not getting the proper signal from the flame sensor so it thinks the burner did not light and shuts the gas supply off. It keeps the blower operating to ensure that no gas is accumulated in the burner area. I suggest you contact a local mechanical contractor to service your heater.

Weather King 8PJ10NDR01 When I turn the heater switch to ON position the furnace runs what sounds like an internal fan. Second, the igniter glows and when it reaches it's hottest stage the fan thrusts air...


The gas valve is not sensing flame, and the unit shuts down on safety.

Chances are the flame sensor is bad, its a common problem.

If its a thermocouple you can buy one for 10 bucks, If its a newer style they can usually be had for less than 30.

They are easy to replace ad they are usually installed with two screws and one to two wires.

They sit directly in the flame pattern in front of the burners.

A service call should only cost you 250 or less for the repair, but you can do it yourself for less than 50 (including gas to drive to the HVAC supply house that sells your brand unit.)

You will need the model and serial #s when locating the parts.

Rinnai convector 516TR


Hi This is happening to us and I called Rinnai... they suggested that if anyone either in our apartment or an ajoining one has painted walls or varnished a floor that the convection heater picks up the smell and the only way to get rid of it is to burn it off by running the heater for several hours in a well ventalated room...

I am going to try it tomorrow.

will let you know

Rinnai Convector 404


Hi pinkinfinite,

The 404 is a great heater. I am assuming it is a Natural Gas Heater. All it needs is a good blow out with compressed air. They tend to carbon up in the pilot light area. You will probably also find it is very dusty inside. Easiest way to clean the carbon out is to remove the hose at the heater and with compressed air blow through the fitting where you have removed the hose. Make sure you hold down the start button so the air can get through to the pilot light and jets. Don't connect the electricity for the fan when you do this.
To clean it out internally you only need to remove the front panelling. There are two screws holding the top panel (not to be confused with the side and top). The screws are located inside the bottom grill at the front. There are also screws for the bottom grill there which you will also need to remove and probably best to remove the bottom panel that house the front feet. It should expose all the inside workings of the heater except for the pilot light and jets etc. You should be able to see the fan - it is round and looks like a filter and sits behind the vent section. Make sure you give it a good blow out - it gets all dirt and dust around it. When you do it remove both the rear filters/covers. They are mesh. Blow the top one which is the larger metal one and make sure you blow inside where it fits over to remove the dust and dirt. Same with the other one which should be plastic with mesh. Once you do this put it all back together. Make sure all wires are connected and be wary with the compressed air as it may blow the connectors off from loose fitting parts. Once you get it all back together Test it and hopefully it should work. Hope this helps. I did one the same today that was having trouble starting and it now works like a new one.

Regards
Bryan
