Hi there,

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.

Regards
Bryan

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

Rinnai heater 403FT. The heater works but the flame goes out and comes back on with a loud bang as if there is a build up of gas


I suggest you call for service. This "bang" could be a serious problem in the future - meaning the next time it tries to start.

Need pilot light assembly for Rinnai gas heater model #REH-25-P


Unfortunately, Rinnai only sells repair parts through their authorized dealers. Contact the dealer you purchased it from. If you are not the original owner of the home/heater, you can go to Rinnai's website and search for a dealer near you. http://www.rinnai.us/direct-vent-wall-furnaces/

Heater goes out after 20min error code 12 appears


Definately a gas supply problem. If it was an overheat you would get a different code. Error code 12 meant a flame was there but then went out. The code 11 meant tried to light but no flame sensed. Error code 12 on heaters and Infinites is nearly always a fault on the gas regulator at the bottles. Sure I recognise your company name from up in Queensland. As you might know we hae had problems with an oily residue in some regulators for ages. I am recommending going away from two stage regs and spliting them up with a seperate first stage and then a second stage. Bit more expensive by zero call backs.

Where is the pilot light on Rinnai EnergySaver 1001F


If you smell gas in a Rinnai you have a big issue. This heater is what is called a direct vent heater with an electronic ignition so the combustion chamber is sealed and the smell of gas is an indication that you have a gas leak. Please call a professional today.

EE2 code for toyo 56


Hi sammysamual,

My business is Laser Heating Service in the North Pole/Fairbanks areas of Alaska. An EE2 error code is usually fuel related. What does your Toyo do before the EE2 code shows up? The firing process is the burner button blinks green for 7-9 minutes, then it clicks up to the medium, yellow light which starts flashing. That is when the fuel pump starts pumping. If you hear a fairly audible tic tic, or thump thump coming from the fuel pump then that is your indication that the fuel pump is starving for fuel. You either have a fuel line restriction, too little fuel, a clogged filter, a clogged sump screen, or rarely, a failing fuel pump. Usually, it is a fuel line restriction.

If you hear no tic tic or thump thump and it just goes off on EE2 then the problem is in the burn chamber. You may have a carbon chain in the chamber causing the flame sensor to temporarily short out. You can clean the flame sensor, fuel nozzle, and igniter to resolve this problem until you can get your Toyo tuned up.
