SOURCE: rinnai gas heater model RCE-318H

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.

SOURCE: my reddy 30 heater will not stay lit

The thermocouple is what tells the gas valve to supply or not supply gas. Several things can cause the thermocouple to malfuntion.
1. pilot light jet is clogged and will not allow the pilot light to reach and heat the thermocouple. Repair by cleaning the pilot light jet out.
2. corrosion on the thermocouple which will also not allow the flame from the pilot to heat the thermocouple properly. Repair by sanding the thermocouple lightly with sandpaper
3. Thermocouple is bad and needs replacement.

SOURCE: have a comfort glow heater blue flame after it is

Easy remedy. You pilot safety is dusty. You need to flush it out or blow it out. I use rust buster. It has a long spout on it. I squirt a little bit into the pilot to flush out dust and cobwebs then I blow it out and allow the rust buster to dry. I then relight it.

Why wont my everdure gas heater stay alight


Some heaters have to be "warmed up" by holding the button down for approx. 30 seconds after it lights. These are ones with whats called a "thermocouple". The thermocouple has to remain a certain temp. or the unit will shut off. If the thermocouple goes bad, it can be replaced

Model#RMC-120MP When lighting i hold button down for 30 sec and release and it goes out in 20 or 30 sec


Sounds like your thermocouple is shot.It's that little tube that the pilot light heats up.I am assuming that you have started this heater before.The thermocouple has to stay a certain temperature to keep the gas flowing.You can buy universal thermocouple kits at your local hardware store.Make sure gas is turned off.Loosen the coupling nut on the outside of the tank then remove the tin and remove the heating part.The whole thing is a small 1/8 tube.Bend new one like the old one and put it back in place.If the kit has yellow Teflon tape wrap the threads on the coupling and tighten.Turn the gas back on and test for leaks with soapy water.Thanks for choosing FixYa.com.

I always add this for your information. If this is not the solution that you are looking for please re post because when we pick a question to answer FixYa takes it out of the questions.

I have a DV-55 direct vent... Blower kicks on for about 30 sec after it lights then goes of and continues to cycle this way then finally stays on


Hi,
That is normal...especially if the air is pretty cool when it starts... the air cools the heat exchanger too much and it cycles till everything gets warm... nothing to worry about.. :-)

Laptop won't start-up


Can you tell me if the status lights on the power adapter and/or the battery turns on? Because you are telling me the status lights only stay on for 30 seconds, this should be a power connection problem.

One other possibility: can you tell me the climate environment of where you use your laptop?
