Question about Water Heaters
Shut downs with new heater might be defective PC board.
Other issues could be associated with improper installation.
Low gas pressure caused by undersized gas meter or water in the gas line, undersized gas line to unit (requires 1" gas line to within 10 feet and then 3/4"), wrong type of gas line (cannot use flexible gas line), improper vent (for example too long horizontal run or undersized vent pipe or shared vent with furnace or other gas appliance), not enough incoming fresh air supply, nearby exhaust fans or vent fans stopping proper draft on tankless, temperature set too high for cold incoming water supply (install tempering tank to help preheat water),..
Other causes can be clogged water filter located where cold water enters tankless, or clogged water line, or crossover caused by bad single-handled faucet or bad crossover valve on recirculation system, improperly sized recirculation system. These problems can mean less water flow through tankless, so burner shuts down, and unit throws error code because sensor indicates water flow is still moving but inadequate to trigger burner

I called Noritz error code 16 is a overheat problem. Noritz say's to flush your coil with vinegar or CLR.
Use a small pump to recirculate the CLR or vinegar through the system for 45 minutes and flush with fresh water. This worked for me.

The 59 code is typically caused by insufficient gas supply to the unit. It can also be caused by obstructed exhaust flow, stuck exhaust damper (located directly on top of the unit's exhaust), insufficient makeup air, or improperly installed venting (i.e. too long or too many elbows).
I would recommend initially checking the incoming gas pressure at the gas connection on the unit. The gas pressure should not drop below 5" water column for a natural gas unit, 8" for a propane system (the unit need to be operating at its maximum output).

This worked for me in the same situation. There is a filter inserted into main gas/ water control valve that senses water flow restriction. The sensor is connected to the gas valve. If it senses inadequate water flow it tells the gas valve to shut down so the water in the heater won't boil. Very expensive part. If you do find the filter clogged, a sediment water filter shoud be install on the inlet side of the water piping.

SOURCE: Water Heater Keeps Going Off
Modlara, it's partially true. There is a flow control valve in the heater. In case the intake is too cold or water usage is too high this valve reduces flow volume to maintain output temperature. But not shut off the flow entirely. Too bad, 063 does not come with a remote control, otherwise it could tell you what went wrong. My guess is either the air intake or vent are some how blocked. The heater is having problem generate enough heat to keep up the temp. so the flow control valve kicks in.
