SOURCE: error code 11 on my rinnai
A code 11 also means that it might not be getting any gas. On thr right side of the unit you will find a small door. open it up and make sure the valve is in the open position. If it is, you should contact your gas company to come and diagnose what is going on. The Rinnai is not a do it yourself fix it type of heater.

11 means no gas / failed to ignite - check the bayonet is fully plugged in properly, they can be hard to plug/unlpug - otherwise you wilol have to take it in for service.

SOURCE: Rinnai 1004 F Error Code 11
Code 11 is that the unit is trying to light but does not sense a flame after 5 seconds. Usually means you have run out of gas if you are bottled gas. Check your bottles are turned on if you are on LPG, you might need to change over manually. Have you anything else on gas?

Error code 11 denotes ignition failure
Here is how you can resolve the issue.
1. Check gas supply, gas type, gas pressure. Verify gas supply and make sure gas lines are purged.
2. Check dip switch settings. Is the unit a converted unit?
3. Check condition of flame rod. If dirty determine why.
4. Check for flame current. (see flame current instruction in this guide) Ensure that all connections are tight.
5. Check all gas solenoids for proper voltage and ohms.

This is the install and operation manual of your Rinnai Timberflame - at the rear you have the electronics schematic.
As you can see the thermostat in this unit is just a thermistor (temperature variable resistor) and all its functions are predetermined - this is how the unit works. The temperature setting is normally determined inside the unit, using either the buttons on the case or the remote: the room thermistor measures the temperature in the air and it transmits it to the control panel which turns it on when it drops below set temp minus 3 C. If the difference is greater then the room thermistor is badly located - too close to the unit itself and the radiant heat that is stored in its elements skews the air temp reading. You will have to change the location of the thermistor: locate it following the wires from the board then extend them and relocater the thermistor somewhere else, away from the unit.
So if you are using a separate one then it is not an original part of the device, it was added later to automatize it. Because of that i have no idea how it looks and why the differences of temperature are that great - normal thermostats should engage no later than 3 degrees Celsius. To find it you will have to follow the wiring from the oven, it will lead you to thermostat and there replace it with another model.
