Question about Rinnai Desa Vent-Free Infrared Gas Heater: Vent-Free Infrared Gas Heater(18,000 BTU)
When ever i try to start it, it pumps gas in to the chamber, untill it "bangs". it was lighting after repeating process a number of times how ever the pilot light is not even staying lit long enough to ignite the gas in any way. Please help its getting cold.
I am not familiar with that particular heater but sounds like blocked jets. You need to blow out the jets with compressed air. Easiest way is to remove the hose at the fitting and blow compressed air through the gas connector where the hose fits on. Make sure the buttons or switches are in the on position. Also if you can see the pilot light (where it lights up with gas) blow down that hole as well. You might see some dirt or what appears to be dirt come up and out. Try that and if it works think of it as a bonus. If you have the same trouble you will need to remove the cowling to get to the actual jets themselves. If it has candle make sure you blow the candles as well as they tend to carbon up - you will probably see a whitish dust come out - keep blowing them till you don't see any more dust. Be careful not to use excess pressure on the candles as they are brittle and can break. Hope this helps.
