Question about Heating & Cooling
Rinnai 2001heater. I turned and pushed the knob too far down and it is now stuck well below where it should be under the rim of the top of the heater.

mine did a similar thing, when in off position, it would only turn to pilot/ignite, but would not move past this point. I took off bottom cover to locate regulator. where the slector knob shaft meets the regulator, try spraying wd40 in the top of regulator where square shaft goes into reg. There is a saftey lock mech in there, and in my case it was stuck in the locked position. I then worked the knob back and fourth applying alot of pressure, but not enough to break the knob. it worked after a few tries, and lights and functions normally, locking again if pilot goes out. good luck.

This sounds like you have a faulty 'thermocouple' (this is a safety device which the pilot heats up).
I wouldn't recommend you do it yourself, as you may invalidate your house insurance should something happen.
Ideally you should get a gas engineer in to change it, i know it's more expensive but at least you get piece of mind and a guarantee.
The part will cost no more than £25
I hope this helps

rinnai has a technical bulletin out on this condition #28. It instructs the technician to adjust the gas pressure. You can get a copy of this bulletin by contacting rinnai at 800-621-9419 (US). or at rinnai.us
