How can I clean inside a rinnai convector 417 gas heater


http://rinnai.co.nz/tradesmart/upload/files/productfile/portable_convector_rce417_operation_and_installation.pdf

Beside cleaning the filters with a vacuum, There are no instructions on how to clean the inside of the heater. The back and front panels would need to be removed. Unless you are confident to remove the panels, just blow it out as you ahve done and make sure the filters are clean.

How do I clean inside my rinnai convector 417?


The owner's manual at http://rinnai.co.nz/tradesmart/upload/files/productfile/portable_convector_rce417_operation_and_installation.pdf on page 10 says to vacuum both filters weekly. It also warns not to wait for the filter lamp to come on since overheating may occur.

I have a Convector 417 RC-417-80 that starts fine but after about 5 minutes stops working. Any ideas?


Steve, there are a several of basic things that can cause this problem.

1. Air filter is clogged. Turn electrical part of unit OFF, Remove and Clean Filter, if necessary.

2. Air intake obstruction. Look for air intake obstruction around the front of the heater.

3. If your unit is a flue-less heater, Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) may be partially clogged with
dust, link or pet air. Clean Pilot Assembly using canned compressed air with a straw nozzle (like
you clean your computer with).

4. Gas pressure fluctuation to the heater. This will require a service call from an authorized Rinnai
Service Technician,

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.

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.

Rinnai Convector 417, has been flashing the filter light alot lately. I have got my vaccumm cleaner and and a rag and cleaned in the front heat outlet, and the back filter areas and it still makes no...


Bit concerned on giving advice on this one other than take it to GOOD servicemen and get it checked out properly. Cleaninbg the filters is Ok, the large one slides out to the top, the smaller one unclips, push in the two tags (closest to the centre of the heater) and it sort of hinges off from the other side of the filter. Give these a good clean. It might just smell because you have disturbed smaller dust particles that are being burnt. Mums know best, if you are worried, get it looked at and don't use it!

RINNAI CONVECTOR 417 Natural gas heater 17.5 MJ Wanting to know if this is a decent model. Anything that may cause you to avoid buying this model? And about how old would this model be?


The 417 service manual is dated 2003, so they're no more than 7 years old.  You can download the operation & service manuals here:
