I have a 30000 btu rinnai floor heater mod 630530. The pilot wont stay lit . I have installed a new thermo couple . please help


be sure the thermocouple is in the pilot's flame and hold down the pilot lighting button long enough to heat it before trying to operate the heater...20 to 30 seconds should be enough. If this doesn't work, you may have a bad gas valve

I cannot get the pilot light to stay lit. I disconnected the burner orifice and to see if the gas was getting through as it seems as if it is.


Several things can cause the problem you're having.

1. Low gas pressure due to a near empty tank or the heaters regulator is locked up and only
allows a small amount of gas to get the pilot. To solve this, turn the gas tank valve OFF & dis-
connect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes & reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the gas
valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the pilot
and hold the gas control valve in for 30 seconds to 60 seconds. After that time, release the control
valve knob. Did the pilot stay lit? If so, problem solved. If it didn't you will need to replace the
heater's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can use the same one that's for a gas grill. And find it at
any hardware store or home center that sells grills and accessories for about $30.00.

2. The pilot is dirty and needs to be cleaned. Use a can of compressed air with a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with) to blow out the pilot tip.

3. The thermocouple has failed and needs to be replaced. If this is the case, you can order a new thermocouple for Blue Rhino (1.800.762.1142) , the manufacturer of your Patio Heater.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Mike, the problem started when you turned the new tank ON. But, it is correctable most of the time.

Turn the LP tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the gas valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the tank valve is fully open, light the pilot and hold the gas control valve in for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Release the control valve and turn it to the ON position. Did the burner light and does the flame height look correct? If so, you solved the problem. Just remember to always turn the tank valve on Very, Very Slowly.

If the above didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the heater's Hose/Regulator Assembly. A gas Grill's Hose Regulator Assembly should work and you can purchase one from any hardware store of home center that sells grills & accessories for about $30.00. Take your old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Heater will not stay on


when a heater runs for 30 seconds or les some heaters run or about 1 minute this is mostly a problem with how much water is getting in the heater if is too little the pressure switch cuts the heater off or the high limit switch is shutting off the boiler why because the small amount of water getting inside your heater get hot to fast and make the heather to get so hot and the high limit switch turns the heater off the solution is to check your filter make sure is clean or cleaned they get dirty soon if your filter is clean and still doing it check the bypass in the heater normally is located next to the lines going in and out in the heather lines I have fix so many heaters my self I use to have a business in california as swimming pools repair so I know this and your heater is not to big to say is your gas regulator gs regulator is a common problem on heaters ranging on size from 30-36-40 BTU
