Rinnai Australia manufactures and distributes a broad range of home comfort products. Our brands include Rinnai, Brivis, APAC and Polo.

Our products are renowned for their quality and reliability, but in the unlikely event you wish to make a Product Warranty claim, please note the following:

  • All portable products and accessories, with the exception of portable gas heaters, should be returned to the place of purchase for assessment, repair or replacement. Please refer to the specific Terms and Conditions of Warranty accompanying the product.
  • Fixed installation products include on-site service under warranty – for full details please refer to the specific Terms and Conditions of Warranty accompanying the product.

Fixed installation appliances require licensed contractors to select a product appropriate for the application, and to ensure it is installed and commissioned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and all local and national regulatory requirements.

As some of our products are a component of a larger installed system, our Product Warranty is limited to the actual Rinnai product only. Our obligation is to ensure our product is free from manufacturing defects and that it performs in accordance with its specifications. All other aspects of the larger system, including its design, other equipment, components, accessories, gas, electrical, plumbing, refrigeration and installation works, are the responsibility of their respective manufacturers, or the primary contractor from whom the system was purchased and or installed.

On inspection, in the event that our service personnel determine the Rinnai product is working to specification, the service call will not be covered by our Product Warranty and a fee will be incurred. (Click for more information)

Please note that in this instance, Rinnai will be unable to carry out diagnostic, repair or rectification works on all other aspects of the larger system.

Before booking a service call, please refer to the Operation or Owner’s Manual accompanying the product, consult our troubleshooting guide or contact the installer / supplier of the system.
