Rinnai Error Code 57

What is a Rinnai Hot Water Error Code 57?

The Rinnai error code 57 may show up on any of the tankless Rinnai hot water heaters, indicating a burner overheat bi-metal switch.

This problem is mainly seen if the hot water system is not connected to the proper gas type (e.g. it is connected to LPG but designed to be connected to natural gas) or otherwise the system may have had a gas conversion at some point.

Another reason that the Rinnai error code 57 will be displayed is if the gas pressures are incorrect, or the sensor requires a replacement.

The Rinnai fault code 57 will require a service from a fully qualified plumber/gas fitter to rectify.

Rinnai Error Code 57 Troubleshooting

In some instances, you may be able to clear the Rinnai fault code 57 from the system’s monitor yourself by;

  1. Ensuring that the powerpoint that the hot water heater is plugged into is working correctly. You can do this by plugging another appliance into the powerpoint and turning it on.
  2. Check that your gas supply is working correctly. To test this turn your gas oven on and look to see if the flame drops at all – if there is a drop then your gas supply may be running low.
  3. Turn your hot water tap on and off.
  4. Press the on/off button on the hot water temperature controllers, if you have these installed.

If the Rinnai fault code 57 remains then a service call to a fully qualified technician will be required to remedy the issue.
