Can I convert a rinnai rce-229a from propane source to natural gas source


It should be. You should be able to replace the oriface and the regulator. Propane is at a higher pressure than natural gas.

Hi i have a Rinnia Royale ETR heater and every time i run my gas hot water the heater goes out. It seems as if there is not enough gas to run both at the same time.can you help. thanks Brian


Definitely sounds like there is a gas pressure problem. Are the gas lines feeding both appliances the proper size (at least 1/2" diameter)? Are they natural gas or propane units. If propane, what's the Btu rating of the regulator on the propane tank? If it's to low to handle the two appliance at one time, that could be the problem too.

I'm going to hook up the grill to our house propane gas line and not use a propane tank. Will I need a special hook up device? Where is the connection on the grill? Thank you. Frank...


Yes Frank, you will need some specialty parts. The gas line from your tank will need a shut off valve near the grill. You cannot hard pipe the line to the grill. Code requires that your use a 12' long, rubber, Quick Disconnect Gas Hose. They are normally sold as a kit and should have all the necessary fittings. You will need to remove the grill's hose/regulator assembly, as it won't be necessary any more. That is, unless you have a high pressure propane system. Then you will need a regulator on the gas line coming from the tank to the grill. If that is the case, it should have the capacity to carry the maximum Btu output of your grill, if all the burners where ON and at their highest setting, at the same time. And finally, and probably the most important, have the knowledge and skill necessary to properly hookup an outdoor gas appliance. Or have a good friend that is a Certified Gas Technician to help you. Of course, your propane provider would probably do it for you. Which, might be money well spent.

Hope it all works out for you and Happy Grilling!!

What size propane tank do i need with a Mr. Heater 45,000?


Rule of thumb is that you have 100,000 btu's per gallon of propane. This only translates into the length of time you have available in a tank of gas. The problem arises when you consume too much too fast. The gas can't produce enough vapor to continuously run and becomes dormant which is commonly known as "freezing up". You can use a typical (20 lb.)5 gallon propane tank (barbacue size), but it will more than likely freeze up in 2 - 3 hours of continous use. I'd suggest going to the next larger size a 30 lb. or 7.5 gallon size. The best way to work this system is to have two 5 gal. tanks so you can switch one out when it freezes and let it thaw while your using the spare.

I just bought a used Rinnai 1004f propane monitor and it came without the vent to outside. How can I get a vent? (Maybe kit) The wall is 16 inches thick. Jim Marstaller Naples, Maine


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.

Hooking up a pool heater to propane.


A pressure regulator and pipe or hose. Whoever is selling you the tank/propane should be able to help you size everything based on the tank hook-up and tank pressure. The heater nameplate will tell you the proper inlet gas pressure that the regulator will need to reduce the tank pressure to.

Typically you will be able to bend the gray hose to make an elbow or untwist the elbow off of the factory supplied air intake hose and use that.

Sounds like the thermocouple is not working or the flame is not hitting the thermocouple. It may take 30 seconds of flame or longer to keep it on. Check for a loose connection at the gas valve.

Either a 30# or 110# tank of propane will work. You might even get by for a short period of time using a gas grill tank, depending upon how cold it is outside.
