SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: brivis ducted heater making a banging noise every

The heating system has a number of burners which must ignite as soon as the heater starts. When one or more burners does not fully or partially start properly, unburnt gas fed to that burner accumulates in a small pocket until is is eventually ignited causing a small explosion. This condition is caused by restricted/blocked burner jets. The gas jets are small and easily fouled by spider nests or other items sucked into the system. You will need to have the heater serviced by a qualified gas plumber.

SOURCE: Strong ''burning plastic'' type smell coming through heating ducts.

it sounds like you have a main air movement system motor that is burning out. it will probably quit on you in the next few days. likely cost to repair from company 375-700 somtimes more if you have a variable speed furnace, in which case you should consider replacing the whole furnace for what it would cost for the motor on one of those.

SOURCE: Error message 35 Hi brivis ducted heating

I had the exact same problem and called 1300brivis. They told me that the error means the thermister needs to be replaced. My unit is also out of warranty but they are still going to come out and fix it.
