Great heater, warm up very quickly. NO gas smell.
Made a right decision to buy this model even though a few bad comments about gas smell.
I bought this a few days ago with no problems at all. Energy efficient. Heater runs very quietly. Anyone looks for the great heater small to medium size living room. Strongly recommended.
Warm, no noise or gas smell.
Odourless and warm!
I agree with mistyblue68. I almost didn't buy the thing because of all the negative reviews relating to "strong gas smells". I can only assume that they have to do with the existing connections. We bought the heater when our cold cold terrace became too cold to bear. Now it's toasty as hell. No regrets (so far anyway).
Quiet, almost instant warming and energy efficient
Not cheap but worth every cent.
Strong gas smell
We recently bought a Rinnai Dynamo 15 Convector and are very disappointed by the product. It is an expensive heater and does heat well, however, it is emitting a strong gas smell and we find it unbearable to use it in the house. After a quick google search, it seems a lot of people are complaining about the strong smell, too. I just wish we had known beforehand.
Good heating capacity
String gas smell, expensive product
Nice and toasty in our house. No smells here.
I wonder why so many people are complaining of a strong gas smell about this heater and have not bothered to call Rinnai and sort it out? We had the same thing and I cursed buying the heater. I called the technical department at Rinnai and sorted it straight away. The "kerosene" smell was because the heater is sucking in all the odours and cooking smells in our house and heating them. There was more technical jargon the guy at Rinnai told us. The first few times we used it we just opened all the windows and doors at once and put the heater on h...igh for 10 minutes to burn the odour off. I think because our kitchen is close to the heater it has alot of trapped odours in our house. We only did that once or twice, now no more smell. Apart from that a brilliant little heater. My place gets so warm. I hope I will have this one for years. Heats quite a large space. Please if you have a problem call the company. They were awesome. Energy efficient.
Questions & Answers
My heater switches off again and again and screen shows error 13, I got it serviced and checked, everything is fine, still it keeps on shutting down. Filter light also flashes and then it switches off with screen showing error 13, pls help.
Hi Ali, thanks for the question, Error code 13 usually indicates the combustion control is faulty and the heater requires a service call.
If the service was booked with Rinnai, the work will be covered under our service warranty and the technician will reattend to diagnose the issue,
Hi, surprisingly when I remove the small filter the heater remains functional and doesnt switch off, any thoughts?
