Clicking noise Rinnai Avenger Gas heater

Is sounds like it could be the automatic ignition. If the sound only happens when you are pressing or turning the knob, I would say that is all that it is. Most gas heaters have an ignition switch under the knob. This triggers the ignition to try and spark. light the gas when the knob is depressed.

Rinnai avenger 25 gas heater. Lock has been put on probably whilst shut off. Nothing works including holding down on/off for 3 seconds or turning off for 1 minute.

To deactivate the lock feature, press the up and down temperature buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. The lock indicator will go out to show that the lock function is no longer activated.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa. Cheers

Avenger 25. 2 months old. house is quite large and is smelling of gas, this smell is getting more noticeable. only occurs when the heater is on.

1 if you smell gas do not operate this unit until you find this leak or sourse of leak. one thing you can do is get a spray bottle and mix up a very soapy mixture of water and soap. before you trun anything on spray any connections , joints , or threaded piping leading to the heater, If you see bubbles forming any where on any joint you have a leak. keep at this until you are satisified there are no leaks at the joints. Next check all connections that are inside the furnas using a wrench you do not need to over tighten any thing but with gentle force look for a lose fitting.,, Then turn the heater on and spray all the joints again to try to find a leak. and check the bruners and see that they are all fired up. if you don't find any thing you might have to call a tech.
Just a note on new units like your some purge the fire box before they fire off . so when you smell gass is it all the while the unit is running? or does it go away? you might be smelling the purge in which case you may need to add a stack to the vent on the unit . Let me know what you find

Rinnai avenger 25 plus, gas heater is making a really loud noise after about 20 mins of being on. Sounds like thunder.Could possibly be air in the line. Is this dangerous? I turn it off straight away....

Brad, typically it's what is called a "Cold Burner". This usually occurs when the outside temperatures are below freezing for sometime and exterior gas regulator freezes up. However, it can occur for another reason. The air intake valve on the burner is clogged and the gas to air ratio is off. In essence, it's what you thought, it's sucking air. But, it's not air in the gas line. Unless, you're real familiar with working on Duct-less gas heaters, it's best left to an authorized Rinnai Service Technician. Rinnai, is very particular about who works on their appliances. Plus, it's probably over due for annual cleaning and service. I the meantime, turning the burner OFF, when it happens, is about all you can do. Let it rest a couple of minutes and turn the burner back up slowly.

Hope this helped you understand what is happening. Cheers....

Key symbol appears on digital display and heater will not start. Model: rinnai avenger 25 plus

The Key Symbol means the controls have been locked. Either by accident or intentionally. If you don't have the code to unlock the controls. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Wait 30 minutes and plug the unit back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The heater should have reverted back to the original factory settings. Now, you can change the settings to whatever you prefer. Just stay away from the Lock-Out button.

Hop this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have a Rinnai Avenger 25 Gas heater which was clean for dust and all of a sudden it works find first thing in the morning yet in the evenings it only lasts for around 5 mins and thens switches off whit a...

Tony, the number 13 represents an Error Code - Combustion Control Faulty . Which may indicate that the Pilot is dirty and needs cleaning or the Thermocouple and/or the Thermopile are failing.. However, you said, "it works fine in the morning, yet in the evenings it only lasts for around 5 minutes", which would seem to negate that theory. Unless, you only use the heater briefly in the morning and longer in the evenings. In any event, according to your Owners Manual (see link below), the solution is Service Call, by a qualified Rinnai Service Technician.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.
