I believe the 12 is the error code for "incomplete combustion". In this case you will want to start with the thermocouple. If you are not handy at these things I would call a service tech. You can find a service person on their website.

Hi.

12 flashes means "Incomplete combustion". The code is prompted when the flame turns off because of a problem.

Check filter, check gas pressure and thermocoupling. Those are the problem that commonly trigger the code 12 error.

Here a manual.

Here Fixya thread on the problem.

Most likely it is a problem with the gas pressure or the air adjustment. You will need a Manometer to be able to check it and adjust it so I would recommend you call your local gas technician. If you have a shut-off on the unit, you can test this by throttling down the valve till the whistle diminishes however this is not a fix, just a diagnosis.

According the the Owner's Manual for your Rinnai Convector Heater, there are 8 things, than can cause what you described. Two of which can be discounted, unless you just had the heater installed.

I have provided a link to the Owner's Manual, that you can download and print for future reference. Please pay close attention to Page # 6 -Pre-Service Check List and Fault Finding. Each problem listed has a troubleshooting solution.

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.

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.
