    Why does the boiler only ignite when the combustion chamber is removed? The fault started with two slow flashing lights... I reset, no ignition, ignition cut out. I removed the chamber, cleaned up etc and the boiler ignited on demand. I replaced the chamber and it does not ignite on demand... Nothing specific about thus in my manual. Please help?

You have a dirty pilot assembly and maybe even a bad ECO switch (safety switch). I would suggest replacing the ECO and removing the pilot assembly and clean it out.

if the flame does not start at all, so just ticking from the ignitor you have a main valve problem and this is expensive replacement part and it must be done by a trained gas fitter.

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.

Our Rinnai convector unflued room heater won't start. Lights just flash heat never comes on.


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.

Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Cheers!

I am having problems with turning my gas heater ( Rinnai Convector 404) on and also a high pitched ringing sound, we were given the heater a cpl weeks ago and managed to use it no probs for a few nights...


This noise you hear may be a result of a gas pressure problem to the heater. Generally, it's caused by low pressure. Low, meaning below the the standard required by the manufacturer for this heater. The gas regulator on the heater may be stuck in a partially open position or the line that furnishing the gas to the heater is to small in diameter. Also, check the gas line shut off vale, to make sure it's fully open.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Check engine light on 1998 Z3 BMW


BMW engine light

Comes on if DME engine management system self diagnostic fault detected. Will stay on until codes are called up and memory erased.

With OBD read the code as follows. Turn on ignition key, press accelerator pedal to the floor five times within 5 seconds. The check engine light will remain on for 5 sec , blik off, come on for 2,5 sec, go off for 2,5 sec and fault code will begin to flash. If more than one fault exist 2nd fault code will be separated by 2,5 sec pause. after fault codes there will be a 0.5 sec flash and light will remain off. to read codes again do procedure again.

Canceling of codes. make sure fault code is present (short blink and light goes out for long period), depress throttle pedal for at least 10 sec. read fault codes again and check for code 1444 (no faults stored.)

Check also the following, fuel pump, oxygen sensor, fuel injectors, engine coolant temp sensor, idle speed control valve, mass airflow sensor and too many other things.
