    This Rinnai is supposed to service 3 bathrooms but the hot water goes cold if more than one hot tap is turned on. I wanted to get the dip switch temperature settings to increase the delivery temperature. I have found other manuals online and read discussions in forums but other Infinity 26 models seem to have different to ours because we still can't get more than 55degrees at the tap. Many thanks for looking at my problem, hope you can shed some more light on this. 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!

How to manually reignite rinnai infinity 26


what i would recommend is to turn power off to unit, turn water off, now open a hot tap inside. Go back to hw unit , turn power back on, now turn HW cold water tap to open. Now you should hear the unit start up.& click continuosly, this is the unit trying to lite. The unit has a flow sensor so as water passes threw it ,that tells unit when to lite. If you hear nothing & no water comming threw you strainer located above cold shut off tap is blocked, unscrew black knob & check. If you have flow & no HW check your gas, usally by losening gas union, there is also filter above this. Also plug another power tool into power point to check you have power

I have a old Rinnai gas water heater Mod REU 55 FTB, after a year not in used, now the gas can not flow, how is the solution ? Thx


If it hasn't been in use for a year or so there could be a couple problems. Sometimes the gas dissipates from the line after an extended period of inactivity. You may need to try several times to light the pilot or the line may need to be purged. Also, if there's gas to the appliance and the pilot will light but not stay on the thermocouple is bad and should be replaced.

How to operate Rinnai V1500 water heater?


The V1500 is in essence the same as Infinity 26. Rinnai have manuals on their website.

Here's a link

If you have any specific problems or queries just post them on this site. I check it every few days.

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.

My Rinnai infinity 20 water heating is not lighting

Hi, our plumber has hooked up a new infinity xr-26 but the existing remotes don't work. He says it's a simple 2 wire connection but ther's no cirrcuit


Check with Rinnai to see if the old remotes are compatible with the new heater. Might mean upgrading the remotes too but the wires should be OK. Double check that he has actually connected the wires to the heater. Rinnai in Australia recentyl changed the connection point for the wiring. I can help further with this if this is the issue (not sure where you are!)

I need the manual for a Rinnai Infinity 26 hot water system


you can get it off the rinnai web site they have a spot on there to get the internet manuel,, but from what you are saying you may need to adjust the thermostat, or the temp, remember even though you will have endless hot water it still takes the smae amount of timed for the hot water to get to your faucet,, not only that make sure your shower heads aren't holding back to much water pressure, if you don't have enough water going thru the unit it will not stay lit, if will come on and go off, judt to dstisfy the unit,, make sure the filter is clear, on the cold side there is a cap screw if you take it off there is a screen in side you just pull it out and clean it and reinstal it,,
