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

Bottom oven stopped working there is a key symbol showing on the panel what is wrong ?


There are a few reasons for this. One is the most obvious and that is the child lock switch needs to be engaged to unlock.Some models call it panel lock.
Turning the panel lock on and off:
To turn the panel lock on, press and hold the Panel Lock key for four seconds. The Panel Lock symbol will appear in the display.
To turn the panel lock off, press and hold the Panel Lock key for four seconds. The message in the display will disappear.

Unlock hot tub control panel


Panel needs to be in the display of "Time" 1st. If not, push the "Prog" button to get there. Once the Time is displayed, push & "Hold" the "UP" button for at least 5 seconds. The Lock icon/symbol will be displayed - panel is locked. Release and hold the UP button again for at least 5 seconds, the panel will then be unlocked.

Lock displaying symbol


Haven't done this exact model but usually it means keypad locked (child lock) should be in the manual how to unlock. Usually hold down a couple of buttons for 5sec.( most of the time a faint lock symbol will be written between the buttons on the button panel.)

Try pressing these buttons for 5 seconds, it will unlock.
OR
Press the "menu" button until you see"CHILD LOCK: ON" appear in the display. (if nothing is pressed within 10 seconds following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display)

Once you see what I just mentioned in the display press the "select" button until"CHILD LOCK : OFF" appears in the display.

Finally by pressing the"start/pause" button the key symbol should disappear confirming you have successfully unlocked..

Key showing on panel


Your washer is in the "child lock" mode, hence it won't allow any program. Press the "menu" button until you see "CHILD LOCK :ON" appear in the display. If nothing is pressed within 10 seconds.following this the menu will close and it will default to program in the display. Once you see that in the display, press the "select" button until "CHILD LOCK :OFF" appears in the display. Finally by pressing the start/pause button the key symbol should disappear - confirming you have successfully exited the child lock program.

How to set time on model HD211B clock radio


1: Remove screw from top back of radio and carefully lift lid that retains buttons. Might be a good idea to take a pic of buttons so they don't get mixed up as they will just pop off at this point.

2: On either side of the back middle button you will see a switch and three (3) buttons.

3: Move "Off On Lock" switch to "Off" (left) position. You will see the unlocked symbol appear on the display.

4: Push far right button first to set your time "Zone" using the "Alarm Time" or "Radio Tune" buttons. Wait 5 seconds for the beep when done.

5: Push the "Time Set" button. (It is the one closest to the "Off On Lock" switch).

6: Use the "Alarm Time" or "Radio Tune" buttons to set the time. (Note: "PM" will appear in the upper left corner of the front display when your time is after noon!)

7: The time display will stop blinking and set about 8 seconds after your last move.

8: Push "Calen" button to set calendar. First the year the push the button again to scroll to the date.

9: Push the lock switch to the right and the lock symbol should disappear from the front display.

10: p
If you removed any buttons put them back, then put the cover back on and re install the screw.

Call the front desk and ask them to set or replace the clock.....

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.
