    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.

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.

I have a used B115. I put kerosene in it. Plug it in, it will run about 5 sec then shut off, kicking out the reset button. Push in the reset and it runs for a shorter time and cuts off again. Have checked...


Remove the top of the heater. Watch out for the fan and turn the heater on. Use a flashlight to look for fuel spraying from the nozzle. If it isn't, check the nozzle for blockage and the fuel filter. If fuel is spraying, make sure the igniter is working. The reset kick out because the flame sensor isn't detecting any flame or is dirty.

What makes the heater start up then cuts off after about 5 seconds with a little of kersone running out of the front of it


This is normal. It has a time limit to fire off. The heater will cut off if it does not light.It sounds like it is never lighting up. Check your ignition source. I am not sure if you have a spark plug type or a glow bar.
