What is a Rinnai Fault Code 73?
The Rinnai error code 73 signifies that there is a fault in relation to the burner thermocouple of the hot water unit. The burner thermocouple is like a sensor that sends a signal to the gas valve to allow the gas valve to let gas through to the burner. If the burner thermocouple begins to fail the wrong signals will be sent to the gas valve resulting in the burner, not lighting, meaning no hot water for you.
Rinnai Error Code Troubleshooting
When it comes to troubleshooting the Rinnai fault code 73 your attending plumber from Jim’s will inspect the wiring harness of your continuous flow hot water heater to ensure there are no loose or damaged connections from the burner thermocouple back to the PC board.
They will ensure all dip settings are set correctly and check that the manifold gas pressures are set as per manufacturer’s instructions. In most instances, the burner thermocouple will need to be replaced if it has become faulty. If the thermocouple is replaced and the Rinnai error code 73 remains then the PC board will be required to be replaced also.
Although a service call is required to rectify a Rinnai error code 73 you can attempt to remove the code yourself by turning your hot water tap off and then on and by pushing the on/off button on the systems monitor off and then on. If the fault code was just a trip of the system it should now be removed. However, if the fault code 73 remains, or shows up again shortly after, then call the experts from Jim’s Plumbing for a fast, reliable and affordable repair first time, every time!
