RATINGS & CAPACITIES
Before undertaking the installation of the Series 8800
and 8900 boiler/water heater check the rating plate to
ensure that the unit has been sized properly for the job.
The “Net I=B=R Ratings” specify the equivalent amount
of direct cast iron radiation that the unit can supply under
normal conditions. Also ensure that the unit has been
set up for the type of gas available at the installation
site. Other important considerations are the availability
of an adequate electrical supply, fresh air for combustion
and a suitable chimney or vent system.
BOILER/WATER HEATER LOCATION
1.
Locate the boiler/water heater in an area that
provides good access to the unit. Servicing may
require the removal of jacket panels. Allow the
minimum clearances between adjacent construction
and the boiler/water heater as listed in Table 1.
Accessibility clearances must take precedence over
fire protection clearances.

prevent water damage to adjacent construction
should a leak occur or during routine maintenance.
If such a location doesn’t exist, a suitable drain pan
that’s adequately drained must be installed under
the unit. The pan must not restrict the flow of
combustion air to the unit.
DO NOT place this boiler/water heater in a location
that would restrict the introduction of combustion air
into the unit or subject it to a negative pressure.
NEVER place this boiler/water heater in a location
that would subject it to temperatures at or near
freezing.
WARNING: Never store combustible materials,
gasoline or any product containing flammable vapors
or liquids in the vicinity of the boiler/water heater.
Failure to comply with this warning can result in an
explosion or fire causing extensive property damage,
severe personal injury or death!

An optimum site will be level, central to the piping
system, close to a chimney and have adequate fresh
air for combustion. Ensure that the boiler/water heater
is level from front to back and from side to side. Use
metal shims to level the boiler/water heater. Electrical
and electronic components must also be protected
from exposure to water during operation and
maintenance. DO NOT install this boiler/water heater
in a location that would subject any of the gas ignition
components to direct contact with water or excessive
moisture during operation or servicing.
Ensure that the floor is structurally sound and will
support the weight of the boiler/water heater. Never
install a Series 8800 or 8900 boiler/water heater on
a concrete floor that contains wires, cables, water
pipes or hoses. This boiler/water heater is designed
for noncombustible floors only! Never install this
boiler/water heater on combustible materials or
carpeting even if a non-combustible foundation
material is placed over them!
WARNING: Never install a Series 8800 or 8900
boiler/water heater on top of combustible
flooring! Failure to comply with this warning may
result in a fire causing extensive property
damage, severe personal injury or death!
WARNING: This boiler/water heater must be
supplied with combustion air in accordance with
Section 5.3, Air for Combustion & Ventilation, of
the latest revision of the National Fuel Gas
Code, ANSI Z223.1 and all applicable local
building codes. Canadian installations must
comply with CAN/ CGA B149.1 or .2 Installation
Code for Gas Burning Appliances and
Equipment, or applicable provisions of the local
building codes. Failure to provide adequate
combustion air for this boiler/water heater can
result in excessive levels of carbon monoxide
which can result in severe personal injury or
death!
To operate properly and safely this boiler/water heater
requires a continuous supply of air for combustion.
NEVER store objects on or around the boiler!
CAUTION: Combustion air contaminated with
fluorocarbons or other halogenated compounds
such as cleaning solvents and refrigerants will
result in the formation of acids in the combustion
chamber. These acids will cause premature failure
of the boiler/water heater voiding the warranty!
Buildings will require the installation of a fresh air duct
or other means of providing make-up air. Any building
utilizing other gas burning appliances, a fireplace, wood
stove or any type of exhaust fan must be checked for
adequate combustion air when all of these devices are
in operation at one time. Sizing of an outside air duct
must be done to meet the requirements of all such devices.
Page 4
SERIES 8800 & 8900 INSTALLATION AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: Never operate the boiler/water heater
in an environment subjected to a negative
pressure. This can result in excessive levels of
carbon monoxide causing severe personal
injury or death!
All Air From Inside The Building
If the boiler/water heater is to be located in a confined
space minimum clearances of 24" (610 mm) must be
maintained between the boiler/water heater and any
combustible construction. When installed in a confined
space two permanent openings communicating with an
additional room(s) are required. The combined volume
of these spaces must have sufficient volume to meet the
criteria for an unconfined space. The total air
requirements of all gas utilization equipment, fireplaces,
wood stoves or any type of exhaust fan must be
considered when making this determination. Each
opening must have a minimum free area of
1 in2/1000 Btu/hr (2200 mm2/kW) based on the total
input rating of ALL gas utilization equipment in the
confined area.Each opening must be no less than
100 square inches (64516 mm2) in size. The upper
opening must be within 12 inches (300 mm) of,
but not less than 3 inches (80 mm) from, the top of
the enclosure. The bottom opening must be within
12 inches (300 mm) of, but not less than 3 inches
(80 mm) from, the bottom of the enclosure.
All Air From Outside The Building
When installed in a confined space two permanent
openings communicating directly with, or by ducts to,
the outdoors or spaces that freely communicate with the
outdoors must be present. The upper opening must be
within 12 inches (300 mm) of, but not less than 3 inches
(80 mm) from, the top of the enclosure. The bottom
opening must be within 12 inches (300 mm) of, but not
less than 3 inches (80 mm) from, the bottom of the
enclosure.
Where directly communicating with the outdoors or
communicating with the outdoors through vertical ducts,
each opening shall have a minimum free area of 1 in2/
4000 Btu/hr (550 mm2/kW) of the total input rating of
all of the equipment in the enclosure.
Where communicating with the outdoors through
horizontal ducts, each opening shall have a minimum
free area of 1 in2/2000 Btu/hr (1100 mm2/kW) of the
total input rating of all of the equipment in the enclosure.
When ducts are used, they must have the same crosssectional area as the free area of the opening to which
they connect.
When calculating the free area necessary to meet the
make-up air requirements of the enclosure,
consideration must be given to the blockage effects
of louvers, grills and screens. Screens must have a
minimum mesh size of 1/4" (6.4mm). If the free area
through a louver or grill is not known ducts should be
sized per Table 2 below.

Note: These sizes are based on a 20 foot (6.1m) chimney height.
When more than one appliance is connected to the
same chimney flue the flue must be large enough to
safely vent the combined output of all the appliances.
WARNING: If an appliance using any type of a
mechanical draft system operating under
positive pressure is connected to a chimney
flue, never connect any other appliances to this
flue. Doing so can result in the accumulation of
carbon monoxide which can cause severe
personal injury or death!
VENT CONNECTIONS
Always use a type B or single wall galvanized metal vent
pipe the same diameter as the draft diverter flue collar.
Use the shortest, straightest vent system possible for
the installation. If horizontal runs exceed 6 feet (1.8 m)
they must be supported at 6 foot (1.8 m) intervals with
overhead hangers. The vent system should be sloped
up toward the chimney at a minimum rate of 1/4 inch/
foot (2 cm/m) and terminate flush with the inside of the
chimney flue. Fasten each connection with at least 3
corrosion resistant sheet metal screws.
WARNING: Never modify or alter any part of the
boiler’s draft diverter. This includes the removal
or alteration of any baffles. Never install a vent
pipe of a diameter different than that of the
boiler draft hood flue collar. Failure to comply
with this warning can result in severe personal
injury or death.
Page 5
Always provide a minimum clearance of 6 inches
(152 mm) between type C vent pipe and any
combustible materials. Type B1 vent may be used,
clearance between it and any combustible material must
be as listed.
WARNING: Failure to maintain minimum
clearances between vent connectors and any
combustible material can result in a fire causing
extensive property damage, severe personal
injury or death!
COMMON VENT SYSTEMS
If an existing boiler/water heater is removed from a
common venting system, the common venting system
may then be too large for the proper venting of the
remaining appliances connected to it. At the time of
removal of an existing boiler/water heater, the following
steps shall be followed with each appliance remaining
connected to the common venting system placed in
operation, while the other appliances remaining
connected to the common venting system are not in
operation.
Au moment du retrait d’une chaudière existante, les
mesures suivantes doivent être prises pour chaque
appareil toujours raccordé au système d’évacuation
commun et qui fonctionne alors que d’autres appareils
toujours raccordés au système d’évacuation ne fonctionnent pas: système d’évacuation
a) Seal any unused openings in the common venting
system.
Sceller toutes les ouvertures non utilisées du système d’évacuation.
b) Visually inspect the venting system for proper size
and horizontal pitch and determine there is no
blockage or restriction, leakage, corrosion and other
deficiencies which could cause an unsafe condition.
Inspecter de façon visuelle le système d’évacu-ation
pour déterminer la grosser et l’inclinaison
horizontale qui conviennent et s’assurer que le
système est exempt d’obstruction, d’étranglement

c) Insofar as is practical, close all building doors and
windows and all doors between the space in which
the appliances remaining connected to the common
venting system are located and other spaces of the
building. Turn on clothes dryers and any appliance
not connected to the common venting system. Turn
on any exhaust fans, such as range hoods and
bathroom exhaust, so they will operate at maximum
speed. Do not operate a summer exhaust fan for a
boiler installation. Close fireplace dampers.
Dans la mesure du possible, fermer toutes les
portes et les fenêtres du bâtiment et toutes les
portes entre l’espace où les appareils toujours
raccordés du système d’évacuation sont installés et
les autres espaces du bâtiment. Mettre en marche
les sécheuses, tous les appareils non raccordés au
système d’évacuation commun et tous les
ventilateurs d’extraction comme les hottes de
cuisinère et les ventilateurs des salles de bain.
S’assurer que ces ventilateurs fonctionnent à la
vitesse maximale. Ne pas faire fonctionner les
ventilateurs d’été. Fermer les registres des
cheminées.
d) Place in operation the appliance being inspected.
Follow the lighting instructions. Adjust thermostat so
appliance will operate continuously.
Mettre l’appareil inspecté en marche. Suivre les
instructions d’allumage. Régler le thermostat de
façon que l’appareil fonctionne de façon continue.
e) Test for spillage at the draft hood relief opening after
5 minutes of main burner operation. Use the flame
of a match or candle, or smoke from a cigarette,
cigar or pipe.
Faire fonctionner le brûleur principal pendant 5 min
ensuite, déterminer si le coupe-tirage déborde à
l’ouverture de décharge. Utiliser la flamme d’une
allunette ou d’une chandelle ou la fumée d’une
cigarette, d’un cigare ou d’une pipe.
f)
After it has been determined that each appliance
remaining connected to the common venting system
properly vents when tested as outlined above, return
doors, windows, exhaust fans, fireplace dampers
and any other gas-burning appliance to their
previous condition of use.
Une fois qu’il a été d éterminé, selon la métode
indiquée ci-dessus, que chaque appareil raccordé
au système d’évacuation est mis à l’air libre de façor
adéquate. Remettre les portes et les fenêtres, les
ventilateurs, les registres de cheminées et les
appareils au gaz à leur position originale.
g) Any improper operation of the common venting
system should be corrected so the installation
conforms with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1. When resizing any portion of the common
venting system, the common venting system should
be resized to approach the minimum size as
determined using the appropriate tables in Part 11
in the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1
Tout mauvais fonctionnement du systéme

GENERAL PIPING REQUIREMENTS
CAUTION: Improper piping of this boiler/water
heater will void the manufacturer’s warranty and can
cause boiler failure resulting in flooding and
extensive property damage! Excessive water
hardness causing lime build-up in the copper heat
exchanger tubes is NOT covered under the
manufacturer’s warranty, see Table 5. Excessive
pitting and erosion of the internal surface of the
copper heat exchanger tubes is NOT covered under
the manufacturer’s warranty if the result of high
water flow rates, see Table 5. Return water
temperatures below 115°F will result in heat
exchanger damage from excessive condensation
voiding the manufacturer’s warranty, see Primary/
Secondary Piping below.
Shut off valves and unions should be installed at the
inlet and outlet connections of the boiler/hot water heater
to provide for isolation of the unit should servicing be
necessary.
Relief Valve
Install the pressure relief valve in the 3/4" NPT opening
on the outlet side of the inlet/outlet header. On units
where the relief valve is larger than 3/4" NPT, install the
relief valve in the supply piping adjacent to the header.
Pipe the discharge of the pressure relief valve to prevent
scalding in the event of a discharge, see Figure 1. The
discharge piping must be sized the same as the
pressure relief valve outlet and installed to allow
complete drainage of both the relief valve and the
discharge piping.
WARNING: Never install any type of valve
between the boiler/water heater and the relief
valve or an explosion causing extensive
property damage, severe personal injury or
death may occur!
SERIES 8800 & 8900 INSTALLATION AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Flow Switch
The flow switch supplied with the boiler/water heater
must be wired to the terminal strip in the junction box
to prevent the boiler from firing unless there’s adequate
water flow through the unit. The flow switch must be
installed in the supply piping adjacent to the boiler outlet
connection.
CAUTION: Failure to properly install the flow switch
may result in damage to the boiler/water heater heat
exchanger voiding the warranty!
HEATING SYSTEM PIPING
General Piping Requirements
All heating system piping must be installed by a qualified
technician in accordance with the latest revision of the
ANSI/ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section
IV, and ANSI/ASME CSD-1, Standard for Controls and
Safety Devices for Automatically Fired Boilers. All
applicable local codes and ordinances must also be
followed. A minimum clearance of 1" must be maintained
between heating system pipes and all combustible
construction. All heating system piping must be
supported by suitable hangers not the boiler. The
thermal expansion of the system must be considered
when supporting the system. A minimum system
pressure of 12 psig must be maintained.
Heating Boiler Piping Connections
The supply and return connections should be sized to
suit the system, see Table 4.

3" Victaulic
3" Victaulic
*Models 420-950 may have 21/2” x 2” reducing fitting
installed.
Pump Requirements
This low mass boiler requires a continuous minimum
water flow for proper operation. The system pump must
be sized to overcome the head loss of the boiler and
the heating system in order to achieve the required
temperature rise. Table 5 provides the heat exchanger
pressure drop and temperature rise figures. The
temperature rise across the boiler must never
exceed 30°F (17°C). The pump should be wired to run
continuously unless the optional pump delay is installed.
The pump delay turns the pump on each time the
burners fire and runs the pump for 100 seconds after
the call for heat is satisfied.
Page 7
CAUTION: A temperature rise outside of the range
listed in Table 5 indicates that the flow rate through
the heat exchanger is incorrect which will damage
the heat exchanger voiding the warranty! The
maximum allowable flow rate through an 8900 boiler
is 100 GPM, 200 GPM for an 8800. If higher flow rates
are required the optional Cupro-Nickel heat
exchanger should be considered.
Low Water Cutoff
If a boiler is installed above any radiation elements it
must be fitted with a low water cutoff device.
Expansion Tank
An expansion tank or other means to control thermal
expansion must be installed in the heating system. An
expansion tank must be installed close to the boiler on
the suction side of the pump.
Primary/Secondary Piping
Boilers connected to heating systems using zone valves,
zone pumps, or systems that have excessive flow rates
or return water temperatures less than 110 °F (43°C)
must be isolated from these systems to protect the
boiler.
Variable Water Flows
Figure 1 shows a typical primary/secondary piping
system. A dedicated pump is used to maintain a
constant water flow through the boiler. This secondary
pump is sized to overcome the head loss of the boiler
and secondary piping system while supplying the flow
rate required to maintain the desired temperature rise
across the boiler. The primary pump is sized to provide
the required flow to the heating system. The secondary
piping connections to the primary system piping must
not be more than 12" apart to ensure zero pressure drop
in the primary system, see Figure 1.
Low Return Water Temperatures
To prevent the problems associated with condensation
of the products of combustion due to low return water
temperatures a primary/secondary piping system with
a bypass and bypass valve must be installed, see Figure
2. The bypass and bypass valve must be sized the same
as the secondary piping. A balancing valve must also
be installed in the supply side of the secondary piping
downstream of the bypass. The balancing valve should
be adjusted to divert some of the heated discharge
water into the return water until the required inlet water
temperature is achieved. The primary and secondary
pumps should be sized to provide the required flow
through each system. The secondary piping connections
to the primary system piping must not be more than 12"
apart to ensure zero pressure drop in the primary
system, see Figure 2.

Multiple Boiler Systems
Systems using multiple boilers can also be installed
using a primary/secondary manifold system, Figure 3.
Piping For Use With Cooling Units
The boiler, when used in connection with a refrigeration
system, must be installed so the chilled medium is piped
in parallel with the boiler. Appropriate valves must be
used to prevent the chilled water from entering the
boiler, see Figure 4.
Figure 4 - Chilled Medium Piping

CAUTION: Proper controls must be used to prevent
water supplied for domestic use from exceeding
130°F (54°C) or a scald injury will occur! When
higher water temperatures are required for
appliances such as a dishwasher, a mixing valve or
some other tempering means must be installed.
Households with small children may require water
temperatures less than 120 °F (49°C). Local codes
must be complied with!
General Piping Requirements
Ensure that the water heater is equipped with bronze
headers. Piping and components connected to the water
heater must be suitable for use with potable water. The
water heater must not be connected to any heating
system piping or components previously used with a
non-potable water heating appliance. Toxic chemicals,
such as those used for boiler treatment, are not to be
introduced into any potable water used for space
heating. If a hot water storage tank is used in the system
it must be equipped with a temperature and pressure
relief valve that complies with ANSI Z21.22 or CAN-4.4
and CAN-4.6.
NOTE: The storage tank must be located as close
to the water heater as possible to prevent excessive
head loss which will reduce flow.

BOILER
CHILLER
When a boiler is connected to a heating coil that may
be exposed to refrigerated air from an air handling
device, the piping system must be equipped with flowcontrol valves or some other automatic means of
preventing gravity circulation of the boiler water during
the cooling cycle.
Water Chemistry
The required temperature rise across the water heater
is based on water having a hardness between 8 and
18 grains per gallon with a level of dissolved solids not
exceeding 350 ppm. Water having a hardness less than
8 grains can cause excessive corrosion of the heat
exchanger. Water that has a hardness greater than 18
grains per gallon and/or a level of dissolved solids
exceeding 350 ppm will require a recalculation of the
pump size and temperature rise. A Cupro-Nickel heat
exchanger may also be required. The manufacturer
should be consulted when these water conditions are
encountered.
SERIES 8800 & 8900 INSTALLATION AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Expansion Tank
An expansion tank or other means to control thermal
expansion must be installed in the water heating system
if back flow prevention devices are installed.
Pump Requirements
This low-mass water heater requires a continuous minimum water flow for proper operation. The factory
recommended circulating pump has been sized to
overcome the head loss of the water heater plus a 30
foot piping loop under normal water conditions.
Table 5 provides the heat exchanger pressure drop chart
and temperature rise table. The temperature
rise across the water heater must never exceed 30°F
(17 °C).
CAUTION: The pump should be wired to run
continuously unless the optional pump delay is
installed. If the pump delay is used a tank-mounted
aquastat must be wired to the remote operator
terminals in the control box and adjusted so it acts
as the primary operator.
Cold Water Supply
The cold water supply must be piped to the water
heater’s outlet piping between the water heater and the
hot water storage tank. This will prevent untempered
water from entering the water heater, see the
TEMPERATURE RISE CONTROL section below. A
typical water heating system is show in Figure 5.
Page 11
Temperature Rise Control
Water returned to the water heater inlet must not be less
than 110°F (43°C) or excessive condensation of the
products of combustion will damage the water heater
voiding the warranty. The method outlined below can be
employed to prevent this condition from occurring.
IMPORTANT: A balancing valve should be installed on
the outlet side of the water heater for purposes of
adjusting the flow rate through the heat exchanger.
Thermometers are installed on both the inlet and outlet
of the water heater for determining the temperature rise
through the unit. The proper velocity through the water
heater must be maintained in accordance with Table 5
for efficient operation and long life. If the temperature
rise through the water heater is lower than
recommended the water velocity is too high. Premature
erosion of the heat exchanger will occur. Conversely, if
the temperature rise is higher than recommended in
Table 5 the flow rate is too low. Scaling and softening
of the heat exchanger will occur.
Thermostatic Mixing Valve
Water Above 140°F (60°C) can be stored at temperatures above 140°F (60 °C) provided that a thermostatically controlled mixing valve is used to temper the
hot water to an acceptable temperature before it’s
supplied for domestic use. The mixing valve MUST be
set to prevent a scald injury from occurring, see the
caution against scalding above. Storage of water for
domestic use above 140°F (60°C) will provide an
increased quantity of tempered water and help prevent
the growth of water born bacteria.

to the boiler/water heater may occur!
The minimum supply pressure listed on the rating plate
is for input adjustment.
NATURAL GAS: Optimum results are obtained when the
boiler/water heater is operated at its full input rating, with
3.8" WC to 4.2" WC of manifold pressure. The manifold
pressure should not vary outside this range. The gas
valve pressure regulator has been preset at the factory.
If adjustment is necessary the following steps must be
followed:
1. Attach a 20" manometer to the tap on the manifold.
2. Remove the regulator adjustment screw cap from
the gas regulator. On systems that do not use a
separate gas regulator, remove the adjustment
screw cap from the gas valve body on the valve
closest to the gas supply piping.
3. Rotate the regulator adjustment screw clockwise to
increase the manifold pressure, counterclockwise to
decrease it.
4. Replace the regulator adjustment screw cap and
manifold pressure tap plug.
CAUTION: Never force the regulator adjustment
screw beyond the stop limits or damage to the
regulator will occur!
PROPANE GAS: A manifold pressure of 11" WC must
be maintained for proper operation of the boiler. If the
manifold pressure is off by more than 5% adjust it
according to steps 1 through 4 above.
Input Rate, Natural Gas
Gas appliances are rated based on sea level operation
with no adjustment required at elevations up to 2000
feet. At elevations above 2000 feet, input ratings should
be reduced by 4% for each 1000 feet above sea level.
SERIES 8800 & 8900 INSTALLATION AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Check the input rate as follows:
1. Turn off all other gas appliances that use the same
gas meter as the boiler/water heater.
2. Call your gas supplier and ask for the heating value
of the gas.
3. Start the boiler/water heater and let it run for 15
minutes.
4. Using the gas meter and a stopwatch, clock the time
that it takes to burn 10 cubic foot of gas and divide
this time by 10.
5. Insert the heating value and the time, in seconds,
into the formula below.
6. Input = (heating value, Btu/hr)(3600)/(time, seconds)
7. If the computed rate deviates by more than 5% from
the rated input value of the unit adjust the manifold
pressure accordingly. DO NOT adjust the manifold
pressure by more than 5%. If a proper rate cannot
be maintained without adjusting the manifold
pressure beyond the 5% limit, the main burner
orifices must be replaced. If the input rate is too low,
go to the next lager size of main burner orifices. If
the input rate is too high, go to the next smaller size.
CAUTION: Never increase the input to the boiler/
water heater above that for which it is rated. Doing
so can cause premature failure of the unit!
Low Water Cutoff
If installed, ensure that the low water cutoff device(s)
function properly. Test in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions included with the device(s).
Boiler Thermostat
If a thermostat is to be used to control the boiler always
follow the instructions included with the thermostat.
Proper location of the thermostat will ensure efficient
trouble-free operation of the boiler. Mount the thermostat
to an inside wall at a height approximately five feet
above the floor.
Avoid placing the thermostat in areas that will not
provide an accurate measurement of the room
temperature. Locating the thermostat behind a door, in
an alcove, close to a source of thermal radiation or in a
drafty area will cause poor or sporadic heating.
For a thermostat that employs an adjustable heat
anticipator, adjust the anticipator to match the current
measured in the thermostat circuit. An increased
anticipator setting may be necessary if the unit cycles
frequently. If the room temperature over-shoots the
thermostat setting, reduce the anticipator setting.

Water Heater Operation Controls
The operating control on the water heater is set to its
lowest setting when the water heater leaves the factory.
The preferred control setting for potable hot water is
130°F. The operating control should be set to the lowest
setting that will satisfy the consumer’s needs. The water
heater high limit should be set a minimum of 40°F
(22°C) higher than the operating control. Refer to the
HOT WATER SUPPLY section for the proper supply
water temperature.
WARNING: Setting the thermostat or operating
control too high can result in scalding resulting
in severe personal injury!
BOILER/WATER HEATER
MAINTENANCE
WARNING: Disconnect electrical power and
close the manual gas shut off valve before
performing maintenance or severe personal
injury may result!
CAUTION: Servicing, inspection and adjustment
must be done by a trained technician in accordance
with all applicable local and national codes.
Improper servicing or adjustment can damage the
boiler /water heater!
The boiler/water heater should be cleaned and
inspected once a year, before each heating season.
Make sure that the burners and ignition components are
free from dust, soot, dirt, corrosion or other deposits that
would impair the boiler’s performance. Refer to pages
19 & 27 for component identification.
Combustion Chamber Inspection
1. Remove the left or right lower jacket end panel, item
5 or 24 (8900) or item 5 or 26 (8800).
2. Remove the upper end refractory brackets and
carefully remove the end refractory panel.
3. Inspect the combustion chamber, heat exchanger
and burner tray components for sign of corrosion
and/or deterioration.
4. Clean or replace components are required.
Burner Drawer & Burner Removal
1. Close the manual shutoff valves in the gas supply
lines and turn off electrical power to the boiler/water
heater.
2. Disconnect the gas train from the gas supply piping
at the ground joint union, Figure 9.
3. Remove the Flame Roll-Out Shield, 8900 only.
4. Remove the two bolts that attach the burner drawer
to the base frame.
5. Disconnect the pilot tubing from the solenoid valve
and the ignition lead from the ignition control.
Page 18
SERIES 8800 & 8900 INSTALLATION AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
6.
Pull the burner drawer out until the burners are fully
exposed.
7. Inspect each burner for damage or signs of
deterioration. Use a brush or compressed air to
remove any debris from the burner ports.
8. DO NOT install damaged or badly corroded burners,
replace them.
9. Install the burners making sure that they are
properly seated in the burner drawer.
10. Replace the Burner Drawer and Flame Roll Out
Shield, 8900 only, following the removal steps in
reverse order.
Heat Exchanger Inspection & Cleaning
1. Close the shut off valves in the inlet and outlet
piping. Relieve the system pressure from the boiler
by carefully lifting the relief valve or opening the
drain valve.
2. Disconnect the boiler/water heater from the system
piping.
3. Remove the left and right headers and mounting
studs.
4. Remove the left & right upper and left & right lower
jacket end panels, items 5 & 24 (8900) or items 5
& 26 (8800).
5. Remove the left & right front corner trim panels,
8900.
6. Remove the flue collector front panel shown as part
of item 19 (8900) or item 21 (8800).
7. Remove the upper front refractor y channel
assembly and front refractory panels.
8. Slide the heat exchanger out and thoroughly
inspect it.
9. The outside surfaces of the copper tubes should be
free of any soot deposits, A slight black smudge is
normal with some types of gases. Black soot
indicates poor combustion. Green deposits indicate
condensation due to low return water temperatures.
In either case the heat exchanger must be cleaned
thoroughly with water and the problem resolved
before the boiler/water heater is returned to service.
10. Replace the cleaned heat exchanger and other
components in the reverse order of their removal.
Heat Exchanger Replacement
1. Sagging or distorted heat exchanger tubes are an
indication of low water flow through the system.
2. A damaged heat exchanger must be replaced and
the condition that caused the damage resolved
before the boiler/water heater is returned to service.
Vent System
Thoroughly inspect the vent system for any signs of
blockage, corrosion or leakage. Immediately replace any
unsound vent system piping.
Controls
Use the BOILER/WATER HEATER OPERATION and
CHECKING AND ADJUSTMENT sections of this
manual for reference.
1. Check the thermostat or operating controls for
proper operation.
2. A float type low water cutoff device must be flushed
out per the manufacturers’ instructions. The probe
on a probe low water cut off must be removed,
cleaned and inspected at least once a year. Ensure
that the low water cutoffs operate properly. In not,
replace them.
3. The relief valve should not weep or discharge water
at normal system pressure. If it does contact a
qualified service technician to have it inspected.
NEVER try to clean or repair the relief valve! If the
valve fails to operate properly, have it replaced!
4. The aquastat high limit controls the maximum water
temperature in the boiler. It is adjustable from 140°F
(60C) to 250°F (121°C). If the water temperature
reaches the set temperature before the demand for
heat has been met, the aquastat high limit should
shut the boiler off. The water temperature should
never exceed the maximum set point of 250°F
(121°C). The aquastat high limit cannot be repaired.
If it fails to function properly replace it.
5. Visually check the pilot and main burner flames to
ensure proper operation, see Figures 8 & 9.
WARNING: Yellow, floating flames indicate a lack
of combustion air. Do not operate the boiler until
the problem is solved or severe personal injury
or death may occur!

Solution
• Ensure that pump is operating
properly - look for voltage through
flow switch.
• Ensure that all system valves are
open.
• Ensure that all air has been bled
from the system.
• Ensure that the maximum
temperature rise of 30°F has
not been exceeded.
• Ensure that water makeup valve
is open and functioning.
• Remove return header and
inspect the heat exchanger tubes.
• Ensure relief valve is properly
sized for the system - never
exceed 160 psi.
• Ensure expansion tank is
properly sized for the system.
• Ensure valve between expansion
tank and the system is open.
• Adjust balancing valves for a
minimum return water
temperature of 110°F (43°C).
• Ensure that the make up air
supply is adequate per NFPA 54/
ANSI Z223.
• Ensure that the vent system is
sized properly, is not blocked or
restricted and that there is
adequate draft present in the
breeching.
• Ensure that the input rate is
correct.
• Ensure that the fuel type supplied
matches the rating plate.
