Question about Rinnai Digital Remote Water Heater Control Mcc-45-4us

1 Answer

Loud noises Our Rinnai Infinity 26 will be working fine, then suddenly start making loud noises in the middle of showering - they sound like high pitched scraping noises, like the music from the movie Psycho - you know, EEE EEE EEE. Turning the hot water tap up or down a little stops them. I called a plumber but naturally it wouldn't make the noises whilst he was here. It will make these noises almost every time we shower, then nothing for months, then they are back again. Even our neighbours are complaining. Any ideas?

    Thanks for that snap101. The plumber that installed the system also installed the gas pipe and assured us that the size was correct. What did eventually work - so far anyway - was to turn down the water pressure from the mains. I think it was a build up of pressure due to the water efficient shower heads we have to use in Australia.

Did you size the gas line properly? sometimes if the gas pipe isn't sized properly it will cause some pretty loud wistling noises. also if you have something in the fan like bugs or lots of dust it will cause alot of problems with noises

    ya usually everything should work fine on those if your water pressure is lower then 80psi

    anything more then that starts to wear on your products more.

Get a shock from the tap while showering


I assume by main power feed your talking about the breaker box? If so make sure the breaker box is actually grounded. Also check inside the heater and make sure the ground wire in there is connected and has a solid connection.

Ask the plumber who did the mods. to come a check that he hasn't crossed a hot/cold pipe. Really sounds like he has, this would cause hot water to mix with cold. Is the water hotter further away from where he did his work? This would be a clue. Easy way to check is to turn off the water to the hot water system, should be a valve on the middle pipe going in to the heater. This should turn off all water to all your hot taps. If you still have water at any hot tap or shower then the pipes have been crossed.

I need a service manual for a Rinnai Infinity 26 continuous flow hotwater system - REU-VR2626WG-AK Can you help me? Linda


I left Rinnai only about a year ago at a levle of State Service Manager. I had been asking for service manual for for many, many months. Basically as far as I am aware there is not a service manual for the WG. If you google Rinnai Infinity 26 manual you can get a PDF from the Rinnai NZ sales site but his dates baack to 2003. Unfortunately there are major changes to some of the components but it might be better than nothing. Just don't use part numbers, and you might find bits to check that now have voltage and resistance differences. Send a message to Rinnai complaining, I encouraged people to do so even when I worked for them!

Rinnai Infinity 26 hot water system set to 55 degrees with remote temp adjuster. Water only luke warm for showers. Burnner working, water & gas pressure ok. Any thoughts ... Stephen


If you aren't getting any error codes, then the heater is probably doing its job. Your problem is probably somewhere in your plumbing system. The most common reason you get this sort of problem is due to cold water mixing in the hot water system. There are a number of causes for a "cross connection" :

-Faulty check valve
-Missing check valve on reciculation return line
-Faulty shower cartridge
-Thermostatic mixing valve set too low
-Faulty thermostatic mixing valve
-Faulty anti-scald valve

The easiest way to confirm a cross connection is to: 1) shutoff the cold water entering the tankless heater 2) open hot water valves around the house. If you still have water flowing at your hot water fixtures, then you have a cross connection.
