This is a handy self-diagnostic tool provided by Rinnai to quickly and easily determine what is wrong with your hot water heater.

In some cases you may be able to fix the problem yourself, if it is just a simple matter. Or, otherwise, a service call will be required.

Thankfully, the Rinnai hot water fault codes provide for a prompt repair with the technician being able to see at a glance exactly what the problem is. One of the Rinnai error codes that you may come across if you have an externally installed system is a Rinnai fault code 41.

The Rinnai error code 41 signifies a fault in regards to the systems freeze protection sensor.

Rinnai Error Code 41 Troubleshooting

An error code 41 will require the services of a fully qualified technician to inspect the hot water heater as the front panel of the unit will need to be removed – exposing high voltage wiring.

In any case of a Rinnai hot water fault code flashing on your digital monitor you can attempt to clear the code yourself by turning your hot water tap on and off and also pressing the on/off button on the systems monitor. The error code 41 will clear if it was a trip of the system, otherwise if the code remains, call in a licensed expert.
