Hi Marc - What can I tell you to help

Marc the plumber : Hello
Marc the plumber : was the storm an electrical storm?

Yes - the storm in melbourne involved a lot of lightining, hail and wind

Marc the plumber : Did the rinnai have any error codes displayed?
Marc the plumber : Okay

There is n remotes with the waer heater it is an old fashioned one

Marc the plumber : Okay so it isn't the 24e. Just the model 24.


Marc the plumber : The only reset these units have is to shut the power off and then turn back on.

OK - I have tried this already - Shoud I leave it off for a few minutes prior to turning on again

Marc the plumber : Yes i usually recommend about 3 minutes.

OK - I will try this and let you know how I go

Marc the plumber : Is there any power at all to the unit? Is it trying to turn on?

It appears to be trying to start when I turn the gas off and back on

Marc the plumber : Okay that's hopeful

'Talk in 3 minutes

Marc the plumber : Make sure the water and gas are back on after shutting off the power for 3 minutes

no luck Marc - should I have turned the water and gas off before turnig off th epower?

Marc the plumber : No it wouldn't make a difference, as long as they were back on before turning the power on.

Any other options before I take a cold shower

Marc the plumber : It appears that the control board may have taken an electrical spike. You are certain you have gas available

yes - have just checked the stovve all good

Marc the plumber : I am sorry I believe you may need to have the unit serviced. Are you handy with an electrical tester/meter?


Marc the plumber : Okay, I was going to try and walk you through some test procedures. So I suggest contacting your local plumber and have them assess the unit.

Thanks - now how do I rate the service given I did not get the unit restarted? I want to be fair

Marc the plumber : I am guessing that the unit took a spike from the electrical storm or power outage which has effected the control board.
Marc the plumber : I cannot tell you how to rate. However the rating is based on my service to you.
Marc the plumber : Good luck with your repair. I wish you the best of luck.
