Check the fan. Unplug the unit and remove the panel that houses the fan unit. Electrical cleaner can be sprayed onto the connection points of the nicad heater elements as well as the fan motor. It may be that one of the heating coils has a bad connection. Take apart and reassemble heating elements and connection points.
Make sure you have not run out of gas first if you are on LPG bottles. Sounds silly but it happens alot.
If the gas is ok they you are likely looking at a problem which would need to be looked at by a decent service technican. Try the Rinnai NZ website, I'm sure they have a helpline and might have a list of service agents. Otherwise ask at any local plumbing or heating shop. Sorry can't help much more.
Remove the two screws that hold on the front panel. Unplug the wire that connects to the ignition light. Now look about low center for a small plastic cover held on by two screws. Remove the cover, all three wires noting which wire went where, and remove both ceramic probes. There is a paper thin gasket that tears easy so be very careful. Take a small green scrub pad and polish the ends of the probes. Take a pair of pliers and adjust the bull-horn probes a little closer. Reinstall and test fire. If it continues, you will need to have the gas pressure tested.
is this a vented or non vented unit? have you checked the rinnai distributorship? call Adirondack Hardware in Keeseville NY. They have parts for Toyostove, Monitors and Rinnai heaters. Their staff are very well versed in all kero and propane heaters.
Question, is there any other equipment that uses propane? You indicate that the problem started after a delivery of propane after running out. If so, I suspect a blockage in either the gas train or the rinnai itself. If tou have the temperature control that regulates the water temperature, you can recall error codes to pinpoint the issue. They are optional equipment so if you can wire one in or ask your propane gas supplier if their service department has one, it will aide in the diagnosis.
