Hire an electrician.  The breaker needs to be replaced or the wiring in your house is not able to handle it.  I believe most need 2-30amp breakers.

My Rinnai tankless water heater keeps tripping the breaker then when turned back on, it begins to beep and displays a code 12. What is causing this? It is new and this is the first time any code came.


Go to Rinnai and get a manual with the error codes... for example a shorted element will trip breaker... wiring problems can cause breaker to trip... anything that causes heat on wire to exceed amp rating of breaker will cause it to trip...

Keeps tripping the breaker


Breaker keeps tripping means short in wire or heat element
Shut power off . use ohm meter and go from ground to each wire on elements and if you get continuity. there is short pull wire off element check wires to ground not continuity bad element.

THE INSTA HEATER KEEPS TRIPPING THE BREAKER?


Is this a new install or is this something that has just come up? If it is a new install, the amperage on the breaker is too low. You will have to call an electrician to come in and check to see if the romex wire is large enough to handle a higher amp breaker. If not, it could be that the breaker has become weak and tripps prematurely. If it's not the breaker its self then the heating element is bad on the unit.
