SOURCE: Rinnai Econoheat 850 gas heater
It needs a service. The jets carbon up and when they heat up they stop the gas getting through. If you take it to a Gas Shop they will charge you around 90-00 to service it and all they will do is blow it out with compressed air. If you can get hold of an Air Compressor with an Air Blower on the end you can blow it out yourself. Remove the Gas Hose from the back and place the Air Blower into the hole where the gas goes through and hold down the ignitor switch to open up the jets. Give it a good blow out. Once you have done that give the candles a blow as they eget dirty also. You will see a white dust more than likely come out of them. If you want to give it a good clean out remove the cowling and clean (blow out) the inside of the Heater. The cowling from memory has only about 6 or 8 screws holding it on. That should take the top and sides off. I can't remember if you can remove the lower vent on that model - if so it will only be either 2 or 4 screws. Hope this Helps.

Is this a standing pilot furnace, or electronic igniton?
If standing pilot, does the heater use a fan to blow air through the heat exchanger?
If the answer to those questions is yes, then check that the pilot orifice is not partially plugged and that there is a strong pilot blowing against the thermocouple. If there is, replace the thermocouple. If not, check the orifice again, and check that the inlet screen to the gas valve is not filled with gas line trash.
If the the pilot flame is good and it continues to go out, the thermocouple magnet in the gas valve may be weak. Replace the gas valve as to get just the magnet and coil is not easy.
Reply back any questions you may have.

how by extending the duct work will it make the gas valve work ?
if the pilotkeeps going out clean pilot jet , or if the power unit has gone in the gas valve then you would have to change the valve , don't get the flue bit ?

Dust build up inside the pilot light burner assembly. A clean pilot makes noise and has a blue flame when it is burning. A dirty pilot has a quiet and smaller flame with an orange tip.
