Rinnai Error Code 16

What Does Rinnai Error Code 16 Mean?

If you see a Rinnai error code 16 on your Rinnai continuous flow hot water heater this is advising you that your hot water unit has overheated and has automatically shut down due to safety reasons.

The Rinnai fault code 16 may become present if you are operating a Rinnai continuous flow hot water heater for any of the following models:

  • Rinnai Infinity 16
  • Rinnai Infinity 20
  • Rinnai Infinity 26
  • Rinnai Infinity 26 Touch
  • Rinnai Infinity 26i (internal)
  • Rinnai Infinity 32
  • Rinnai Infinity Enviro 26
  • Rinnai Infinity Enviro 32

You may be able to clear the Rinnai error code 16 yourself by turning the hot water tap off and then on again. If this doesn’t work try pressing the on/off button. If fault code 16 remains then you will need to contact a fully qualified service technician to investigate and rectify the overheating issue in relation to your hot water system.

Rinnai Error Code 16 Repairs

Your attending plumber from Jim’s Plumbing will investigate your Rinnai hot water heater to correctly determine and rectify the fault 16 error code.

They will check your hot water system for a low flow in circulation which may be causing short cycling. They will investigate the combustion chamber, exhaust piping and heat exchanger fins to ensure that no foreign materials have become lodged causing a blockage, and they will ensure that your system’s heat exchanger is working correctly.

The Rinnai hot water experts from Jim’s Plumbing attend to your location in a fully stocked van; so should any replacement parts be required they will rarely have to leave your property to collect.

When it comes to a Rinnai fault code 16 you should never attempt to repair the hot water heater yourself, other than trying to clear the code by turning the system off and on again.

DIY repairs on a gas or electric hot water system can be extremely dangerous if you are unqualified and the last thing that you want to do is void your appliance warranty, or risk your home’s insurance.

Leave it to the experts for a fast, reliable and affordable Rinnai error code repair – call your local plumber today from Jim’s.

So quick!

Jayden was sent to fix my washing machine taps. He was polite and friendly, and explained what needed to be done. It was a bit more expensive than I expected, but from my call for service to the job being completed was only two hours. I would definitely recommend!
