Our Rinnai convector unflued room heater won't start. Lights just flash heat never comes on.

According the the Owner's Manual for your Rinnai Convector Heater, there are 8 things, than can cause what you described. Two of which can be discounted, unless you just had the heater installed.

I have provided a link to the Owner's Manual, that you can download and print for future reference. Please pay close attention to Page # 6 -Pre-Service Check List and Fault Finding. Each problem listed has a troubleshooting solution.

Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Cheers!

Have 2 heaters 1st heater will not light, has gas

sometimes you need to hold down the button for 5 to 10 seconds while the heater heats up,, as soon as it gets to temperature then it should stay on with no problem.
as far as the one that is not lighting -- all I can thing of is that the igniter is not close enough to the fuel exit area ( ? ),, with the power off - ( un-plugged ) look inside as you press the igniter and see if you can see the spark arch. -- also, if this is a new heater there is a chance that there might be something wrong with the regulator and it is either getting to much or not enough gas.

Just needs a little TLC: We just bought this heater at Goodwill and it's still in very good condition. The fan wasn't working either, but there was definitely heat. So we took it home and took it apart just to the point where we could give the fan a good q-tip/tweezers cleaning (lots of dust was in there) and then used Penzoil motor high temp grease via a toothpick on the spinning fan axle and voila! The fan works now and doesn't make anymore noise either. Just a note: this is a tedious task that requires an extra hand to help hold things in place since you can't take the fan out completely.

Power usage

Hi YiXin

It will only use 2400 watts when on full. On settings lower than full, you will reduce the heat generated, and thus use less power. The amount of watts(energy) used is directly proportional to the heat the unit puts out. Hope this helps. A FixYa rating would be great for my solution. Thanks for using FixYa. Stay cosy :)
