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

I had the identical trouble with my Rinnai 431F just now & read the unanswered posts.
I checked my intake & exhaust & found them connected & intact then went out to check the exterior vent assembly. The "bell" or dome was almost entirely clogged with ice.
I suspect the 60 - 76 lights flashing means insufficient combustion air.
Anyway, I took a hair dryer to it & in 10 minutes it was working as well as ever.
This won't help you October posters but if anyone else has this problem in the future I would start with the outside vent assembly. Get a good look right up inside because I would have missed this ice if I didn't get up close with a flashlight.
Here's a good source for manuals too...
I'm going back to bed.

It may be, Rinnai suggests a maximum length of about 13 equivalent feet of venting including elbows. Add 6 feet for every 90 degree elbow. If the vent is longer than this it is taxing the combustion fan motor and it will start giving you error codes and will not ignite. Remove the trim panel from behind the heater and find the flexable air intake pipe. Temporally remove it from a fitting and test the unit a few times to see if the unit starts quieter. This procedure will be taking room air into the heater for combustion and circumventing the direct vent feature of the heater, not a fix. Have you had the gas pressure tested? It gould be that! You may wish to consider relocating the heater and fire your installation contractor for putting you in this predicament, not Rinnai.

This sounds like a faulty flame failure device. Fairly old heater this one. I have a manual on PDF but I don't think it will help you fix it.
Just found a link to users manual
Have a look but best advice is get someone to have alook at it who knows the unit and can get spares as I'm pretty certain your going to have to fork out a few dollars on this one.
