Rinnai Avenger 25TR Model Gas Heater

Grand daughter pushed too many buttons and machine appears to be locked. There is a key symbol and "time" on the display panel. How do we unlock it and switch it back on? Any help you can give will be gratefully received.

I just fixed this problem for my parents. All you have to do is hold the up and down arrows that sorround the power buttom for 3 seconds at the same time and the key symbol should dissapear and make a slight beep. Then you should be able to use the heater as normal =]

If there is a unlock button on your heater press it downs until you hear a beep
this should fix your problem or try unplging the heater itself

I have an Rinnai Avenger 25TR heater. The problem is that the heater ignites, it starts, but then it turns off. A red light then flashes and the number 13 also flashes in the bottom right hand corner of...


Paul, the Error Code Fault 13, indicates a Combustion Control Fault. This could mean, not enough gas for safe combustion or to much gas for continued operation. In any event, if requires a service call from an authorized Rinnai Service Technician to solve.

Just in case you have misplaced your Owner's Manual, I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference.

Key symbol appears on digital display and heater will not start. Model: rinnai avenger 25 plus


The Key Symbol means the controls have been locked. Either by accident or intentionally. If you don't have the code to unlock the controls. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Wait 30 minutes and plug the unit back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The heater should have reverted back to the original factory settings. Now, you can change the settings to whatever you prefer. Just stay away from the Lock-Out button.

Hop this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Rinnai avenger 25 wont switch on and has a key symbol displayed


O.K If it just the child lock that has been activated then press both the UP and DOWN buttons together for 3 seconds. The lock indicator light should then go out. If there is no power at all it may be something more sinister.
Cheers
