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)

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.
