SOURCE: Rinnai burner goes out when ignition button is released

The thermocouple [s] require replacement, or in my experience try servicing the unit first. There is an injector for the main pilot and a secondary injector for the flame thrower ignition. Both of these are prone to blocking due to dust and can be enough to shut the unit down. Although usually this is thermocouple related as you are manually keeping the unit running when you hold down the button, if the tcouple is broken it wont send enough millivolts to hold the magnetic valve open when you release the button.
Cheers

11 means no gas / failed to ignite - check the bayonet is fully plugged in properly, they can be hard to plug/unlpug - otherwise you wilol have to take it in for service.

SOURCE: Pilot light won't ignite on a Rinnai 2000 1

The trick is that it may take a long time for the flammable portion of the gas to reach the pilot light orifice where the flame lives. This happens a lot when the pilot flame has been out for some time. There won't be a clicking sound as YOU are supposed to provide the flame - it's not like a cooking stove with such conveniences, because the pilot light is only an occasional thing to light it's rare to find an ignition source built in. I'd hate to see you spend good money when all you need to apply here is time and a flame.

SOURCE: I have a trouble code 11 on my Rinnai model 2532

11 is a ignition failure code. Could be alot of things, I suggest calling a tech who has repaired these before. Pull the front cover off and have a helper turn on a hot water faucet. Look thru the viewing window to see if the unit is firing then going out. If not, clean out the water filter on the inlet side of the plumbing. You will need to turn off the water supply prior to cleaning it. If the unit fires but shuts off seconds after ignition, you may have a dirty or bad sensor. Call a proffessional at this point. Sorry

My rinnai gas heater ignition knob does not rotate and therefore unable to ignite the heater....it seems its locked


I don't know your particular heater, but did you try depressing the knob prior to attempting rotation ?? It may seem 'locked' due to be rotated against a 'stop' requiring a different movement....

Clicking noise Rinnai Avenger Gas heater


Is sounds like it could be the automatic ignition. If the sound only happens when you are pressing or turning the knob, I would say that is all that it is. Most gas heaters have an ignition switch under the knob. This triggers the ignition to try and spark. light the gas when the knob is depressed.

Getting an error code of 11


Error Code 11 indicates an ignition failure. Check that the gas supply is turned ON. Switch the heater to STANDBY and the ON again. If the burner doesn't light or you continue to have a problem contact your Rinnai dealer.

Hi my Rinnai spectrum 28 gas heater only burns on high heat settings if i change it to anything lower it blows out what does this mean?


If this is occurring on windy days, a back draft in the flue termination is blowing the pilot out. When this happens ,everything shuts down, as it should. If it occurs under all weather conditions, the air filter may need cleaning. Also, be sure that there are no obstructions blocking the air louvers on the front of the heater.

To assist you further, I have included a link to the owner's Manual for your model, in case you have misplaced yours. You may download and print this manual if you like.

Have a rinnae royal gas lok heater. Cant start it after gas was shut off. How do you get the ignition to work and start the pilot light again


When the gas was turned OFF, air got in the line(s) and created an air pocket. This air will need to purged from the system, before the heater will light. It only the shutoff valve on the gas line to the heater was turned OFF, it will be easier to purge. If your Rinnai heater has manual ignition rather than electronic ignition. Holding the control down in the Pilot position, will eventually purge the air. If you have electronic ignition, continually trying to light the unit will do the same thing, but take longer to accomplish. Consulting your Rinnai will also help you with this situation.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have bought a house with a Rinnai heater which is approx 20years old. In the 5 weeks I have been here it has gone every day first try. Tonight after constant starts it just will not ignite. The spark...


The obvious question is are you sure you have not run out of gas or has an isolation tap been turned off by mistake. Do you have anything else on gas that is still working ok. Check this one first and I am willing to keep an eye out if you re-post the fault.

Rinnai gas heater loud noise on ignition


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.
