Heater goes off

I have a Rinnai REH-23DFT-N with a serial number of 98.07-000001. It has started shutting itself off and not relighting. Any suggestions?

Possibly A bad thermocoupler. It is the part that looks like a stiff solid copper wire with on end sticking in the flame of the pilot light and is a safety feature if the pilot goes out it starts to cool and the resistance changes back you the module and the module shuts the gas off. I have seen these go intermediately faulty in waterheaters and do just what you described.

Pilot lite will not stay on when I release the igniter pressure knob REH-18-N wall heater!

IS there gas? YES ok. So if you can get the pilot lit, but when you let up on the button it goes out. Few things to check. On some heaters the manf. install a safety switch to drop the pilot out if its not venting or if its over heating.

My local Ace Hardeware carries many ignitors - otherwise a Rinnai dealer will have one.
