You need to press the child lock button - keep pressing hard on the button until it turns off - takes a few seconds.

Hold the lock button down for approximately one second to switch between locked and unlock. If it is locked when you turn it on you will need to do this first

Definately a gas supply problem. If it was an overheat you would get a different code. Error code 12 meant a flame was there but then went out. The code 11 meant tried to light but no flame sensed. Error code 12 on heaters and Infinites is nearly always a fault on the gas regulator at the bottles. Sure I recognise your company name from up in Queensland. As you might know we hae had problems with an oily residue in some regulators for ages. I am recommending going away from two stage regs and spliting them up with a seperate first stage and then a second stage. Bit more expensive by zero call backs.

Real odd one as if ignition fails this unit is designed to flash various lights to give you an idea of what the fault is. Also this usually happens after about 10-15 seconds. I'm going to have to ask you to clarify that no other lights flash. If I had this fault exactly as you descibe, after running some basic tests to check gas supply and any obvious damage or burnt out components I would change the the main PCB as a start and the control PCB as a plan B.

It should be. You should be able to replace the oriface and the regulator. Propane is at a higher pressure than natural gas.
