Rinnai is a hot water system brand that we frequently repair and install. In the market, we normally expect to see Rinnai as gas continuous flow units, so it was surprising today to come across a Rinnai electric 250 litre storage hot water heater, as it is a unit that is not very common.

However, in our experience we find that these are fairly easy to maintain and repair.

This particular Rinnai 250 litre electric hot water heater was producing cold water from the hot taps. In analysing and testing the unit, the plumber found that the element and thermostat required replacing.

In removing the element from the tank, he found there was an obvious split on the copper coating of the element that allowed water to leak, causing the hot water service to short out. The plumber drained the cylinder of water and installed a new element and thermostat and tested with his multimeter to ensure that there was a full electric circuit.

All our vans are well-stocked and carry all the parts and materials to repair these Rinnai 250 litre storage hot water services, including thermostats and elements. The customer did not have to wait for the plumber to source these parts from the supplier.

When the plumber left the heater was already in its heating cycle so within two hours the customer would have had hot water working throughout the house.
