My Rinnai Tropic wall unit heater makes noises after the thermostat cuts off the heat and it's cooling down. Then it makes a loud clang sound. What's goin on please?

Jack some of this normal due to thermal expansion and contraction. If you installed it, you should check all the fasteners and make sure they are tight.

Evening, Rinnai Convector 417 - the two flames on the right hand side panel are on - heater tries to light but switches off before igniting we have cleaned the filters - seems to be no spark

There are about 8 reasons why this is happening. Rater than going into each and every one, I have included a link to an Owners Manual, that under the Troubleshooting Sections (pages 12 & 13) it will provide you with the scenario and how to solve the problem. This manual may not be the exact same one as your heater, but they all work the same and have the same problems.

Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem.

I have three Kozy World wall heaters. Two work just fine - the bricks turn red after the heater has been on for a while. The third one always burns blue and the flames 'lick' the top of the inside of the...

Yes, it sounds like the third heater has a Control Valve problem. It's allowing more gas into the system than what it's supposed too. Have you tried turning the flames down to a lower setting? If so, did it lower the flame height? How old is this heater and is cleaned and serviced at least annually? Are you using Natural Gas or Propane?

Please get back to me with the answers to the above questions and I may can help you.

What colour should your gas heater flame be

It should be blue. If it's got orange tips, it's burning dust, If it's got yellow flames or tips, it may need the air shutter adjusted, regulator pressure adjusted, the vent unblocked or just a real good cleaning. Douglas

New heater has worked but now lights up then immediantly goes out

There should be a flame sensor similar to the one below. The tip will be directly in the flames. Try cleaning that with a piece of steel wool and try the heat again.

1600c vanguard propane heater, big flame on middle grate

Make sure the grate is in the holder like the others, and nothing is blocking the bottom of it. They often slip back where the fire misses the inside where it should hit.

Pilot lights but when ignition pops back up the flame goes out

will either be the unitrol control box or the thermocouple, when you push down you are holding two magnets together and waiting for a small charge to be created from the probe in the flame , if this is not working you have no charge and the magnets won;t stick to allow the valve to open, change the thermo and see if that works first, its way cheaper than a new controler
