Rinnai Convector 404 Natural Gas

Hi,
I have a Rinnai Convector 404 with the gas supplied by LPG bottles at the momemt. I have just moved into a house which has mains supply gas. I suspect the new gas is 'Natural'. Is there some sort of converter needed to use my old Rinnai if this is the case?

    you may need to get it back to the rinnai factory to convert it. give rinnai a call or your nearest gas shop/supplier

Is it possible to convert a rinnai avenger 25 from natural gas to lpg?


Yes it Should but you will want to check with manafactuer because it will need a conversion kit for lp gas. Natural gas is a different p.s.i. than lp gas so don't try without conversion kit. It should be just a small fitting that goes inside the gas valve. Hope this helps have a good day

I have a rinnai LPG 6 burner gas heater, it starts fine but wont ignite the middle left burner. It has a blue flame over the top that occasionally radiates down the burner. All the other 5 burners work...


sounds like the injector hole is too largefor that burner have you had it converted reciently
lpg injectors are only half the size hole of natural gas injector, could have a blockage in the injector diverting the gas flow

Rinnai inbuilt lpg gas fireplace IB35ETR wont ignite. Has good spark but heater does not ignite. LPG is full to large tanks. Other gas appliances are working fine.


You don't mention any error codes displayed. If this is the case I would start with a new main PCB. It should try and light for approx. 10 seconds and then go to lockout with an error code 11 if it was a gas supply issue. This is all controlled by the PCB hence my opinion on a PCB fault.

My rinnai comes up with a code 11 when i try to start it. if i try it about ten times the main valve opens and runs fine. but untill that point it doesnt start. any ideas?


Mysolution relates only if you are on LPG/bottleg gas. I have had many problems with the gas regultor actually on the initial supply line near the bottles sticking. Error code 11 is usually simply a gas supply issue and not a fault with the heater itself. Just rule out that before you start messing with the heater itself. Causes inside the heater would be either gas valve (unlikely) or PCB. Both are not normally intermittent. Try running something else on gas if you have anything and then turn on the heater.

Hi I have a rinnai flame fire royal model ib35etr It keeps going out and flashes number 12 on the screen we are moving and packed the book


I had this same problem last year and went through all the checklist in poshpoms suggestions ( I am on mains Gas ). The issue was caused by the Flame rods. Near the 2 pilots at the front and the back. Those small rods each that 'senses' the flame become inadequate, so they were replaced with a new pilot assembly from Rinnai that had longer rods and better coverage. Issue was fixed. Good Luck.

Rinnai 1004 F Error Code 11


Code 11 is that the unit is trying to light but does not sense a flame after 5 seconds. Usually means you have run out of gas if you are bottled gas. Check your bottles are turned on if you are on LPG, you might need to change over manually. Have you anything else on gas?
