4 days old no hot water.
Had a new b26 ibstalled in a new house. 5 days later no hot water. Unit is not switching on. If i turn the gas and water off at the unit then turn them back on the unit produces heat fir about 20 seconds then goes cold again. Very unhappy.
Update: Rinnai sent a plumber out promptly and fixed the problem.
Purchased in September 2020 for A$840.00.
No hot water Rinnai B26
Had a rinnai b26 installed about 8 months ago. All going well but now we are having morning frosts say -2 no hot water until 9am. All pipes wrapped , pipes freeze but not affected unless much colder with old storage unit. Bottled lpg gas system. Any ideas on how to fix, very annoying
Purchased in October 2019.
Want warm water - purchase the Rinnai B26.
This system maybe satisfactory if it is located very close to the kitchen sink, the shower or other water outlets but if it is not be prepared to waste a lot of water before warm- (note that I have used the word warm) water is available -no need for any cold water or very little maybe when you shower. While you are waiting for the warm water to come through before washing dishes, fill up and boil your kettle - washing dirty dishes in warm water just does clean them properly. I would find it difficult to recommend this warm water system to anyone.
Questions & Answers
Is it normal to smell gas near the B26 50 appliance?
Thanks for the question, the unit can give off a smell of gas while being used, but if it is extreme during use it could be incomplete combustion caused by low gas pressure.
If however the smell is there permanently a service call will be recommended to find root cause.

Brand new B26 installed yesterday. Already has a fault. Will not make hot water at low flow rates. Initial start up takes too long and wastes too much water and time.
I'm telling my plumber to pull it out and return it to Tradelink in the morning

Designers and purveyors of Junk HW Systems. Plumber/Gas fitter has already done that. Gas pressure is perfect. Why do so many customers complain of similar problems?
