Rinnai Avenger 25 switching off

The portable gas heater starts up as normal and then after a few seconds it begins to blow out at a very high speed. A few seconds later it cuts out and stops working. It has the number 13 flashing on the top panel but I no longer have the owners manual.

I had the same problem.
Try cleaning the two filters at the  back of the heater very thoroughly. It worked for me.

Our Rinnai Avenger 25 automatically switches off within 1 minute. When we press the on button, the unit starts with a green light on the "ON" button but within seconds, the light turns to red and soon...

Did you get any error codes? Press on/off button twice to reset heater or
press both the Up and Down buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds

It can also be a faulty temperature sensor, this would need a service call...cheers

Clicking noise Rinnai Avenger Gas heater

Is sounds like it could be the automatic ignition. If the sound only happens when you are pressing or turning the knob, I would say that is all that it is. Most gas heaters have an ignition switch under the knob. This triggers the ignition to try and spark. light the gas when the knob is depressed.

I have an avenger 25 plus it is showing the locked signal. how do i unlock it as i have lost my manual thank you

If you press the UP & Down Temperature Buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds, the unlock feature will unlock. To lock it, do the same thing.

For future reference, I have included a link to your Owner's Manual that you can download and print for future reference. Ater doing so, please keep it in a safe, accessible place.

Hope this helps you to stay warm, this winter.

Rinnai Avenger 25 gas heater being used. Now we get soot on walls and windows. Is this normal ?

In my experience soot in the house is (almost) always caused by the burning of candles. Get a CO detector if you don't already have one!
