With the unit turned off, hold down on the economy button, the up arrow and down arrow all at the same time for three seconds. A number of error codes will start flashing. Copy the numbers down and repost them so we can help you. I suspect a dirty flame rod or poor gas pressure. Can you give us any info on when it fails or does it light when you turn off and back on?
It shouldn't give an odor at all unless it hasn't been run a lot or cleaned. Rinnai recommends blowing compressed air through the front grates once a year. The pan is to catch condensate from the venting system. Hot flue gases contain moisture, which is a byproduct of burning propane. When this hits anything below 212 degrees, it will condensate and collect in the pan. The heat from the unit evaporates the water, thus making it a good system of condensate disposal. However, additional water can be added daily if you have problems with dryness in the air. The only other thing that can cause a bad odor is a compromised heat exchanger. You should have it checked, and if you don't already, have a CO detector in the room
I just had the same prblem and had a gasfitter out yesterday to have a look at mine. He suggested to me to take the front panels off and use a compressor to clean out all the dust that has built up. My filters were clean as they get cleaned every week but as therinnaiguy said it is a overheat safety device.
I used my compressor and blew out all the dust it makes a fair bit of a mess but it seems to be working fine now. Just be careful when u use the air not to directly blow it around the electrical area.
There is also 2 wires u need to disconect u will see these when u take the cover off and also make sure u unplug the the power to the unit.
