GENERAL RULES TO FOLLOW
FOR SAFE OPERATION
occupied rooms normally kept closed. See the section below
on locating the heater.
1. You should follow these instructions when you install
your heater. In the United States: The installation must
conform with local codes or, in the absence of local codes,
the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54.
In Canada: The Installation should conform with CGA
B149.(1,2) INSTALLATION CODES and/or local installation
codes.
4. You must vent your heater. See section on VENTING,
Page 6.
2. Carefully plan where you install the heater. Correct
combustion air supply and flue pipe installation are very
important. If not installed correctly, fatal accidents can be
caused by lack of air, carbon monoxide poisoning or fire.
5. The appliance must be disconnected from the gas supply
piping system during any pressure testing at pressures in
excess of 1/2 Psig (3.5 kPa).
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping
system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve during
any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at
test pressures equal to or more than 1/2 Psig (3.5kPa).
The appliance and its gas connection must be leak tested
before placing the appliance in operation.
3. The place where you install the heater must have enough
ventilation. The National Fire Codes do not allow gas fired
water heater installation in bathrooms, bedrooms or any
6. Keep water heater area clear and free from combustibles
and flammable liquids. Do not locate the heater over any
material which might burn.
4
7. Correct gas pressure is critical for the optimum
operation of this heater (see specifications on page 2). Gas
piping must be sized to provide the required pressure at
the maximum output of the heater, while all the other gas
appliances are in operation. Check with your local gas
supplier, and see the section on connecting the gas supply.
8. Should overheating occur or the gas supply fail to shut
off, turn off the gas supply at the manual gas shut off valve
on the gas line.
WARNING: The water in this water heater is cold
and always remains cold except for the times that hot
water is being used DO NOT INSTALL IN AN AREA
WHERE IT COULD FREEZE.
This heater is neither designed for nor approved for
outside installation.
Drain the heater entirely if freezing temperatures are
anticipated in area where heater is installed by
disconnecting both the inlet and outlet elbow connections
at the rear of heater. Additionally remove the drain plug
under the water valve. See Fig 0.
9. Do not use this appliance if any part has been
underwater. Immediately call a qualified service technician
to inspect the appliance and to replace any part of the
control system and any gas control which has been
underwater.
PROPER LOCATION FOR INSTALLING
YOUR HEATER
Carefully select the location of your new heater. For your
safety and for proper heater operation, you must provide an
abundant supply of combustion air and a proper venting
installation.
The heater may still operate even when improperly vented.
It will, however, be less efficient and could eventually damage
the heater. It could even result in human sickness or death
due to oxygen deprivation and carbon monoxide poisoning.
Follow the guidelines below:
1. Place your heater as close to a vent or chimney as
possible.
2. National building codes require that you do not install
this appliance in bathrooms, bedrooms, unvented closet or
any occupied rooms normally kept closed.
3. Simultaneous operation of other appliances such as
exhaust fans, ventilation systems clothes dryers, fireplaces
or wood stoves could create a vacuum effect in your home
which could cause dangerous combustion by-products to
spill back into your home rather than venting to the outside
through the flue. Confirm that your Aquastar is venting
properly when all these other appliances are running. See
section on venting.
Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation
air to the appliance. If installed near a clothes dryer it is
very important that the dryer be properly vented. Failure to
properly vent a dryer could result in a gradual accumulation
of lint on the water heater fin coils and burners, leading to a
dangerous condition of vent blockage and poor unsafe
combustion.
4. Your hot water lines should be kept short to save energy.
It is always best to have hot water lines insulated.
This product is not approved for manufactured homes
(mobile home), recreational vehicles (RV) or boats.
Reference ANSI Z21.10.3.
This product is neither designed or approved for
outside installations.
Fig. 0 - Water heater drain plug
WARNING: Flammable materials, gasoline,
pressurized containers, or any other items or articles
that are potentially fire hazards must NOT be placed
on or adjacent to the heater. The appliance area must
be kept free of all combustible materials, gasoline
and other flammable vapors and liquids.
COMBUSTION AIR REQUIREMENTS
The AquaStar water heater holds cold water in its copper
heat exchanger and brass water valve when not in use.
Because of this, any cold air that comes in through the
unit’s vent pipe is capable of freezing these components.
This Installation Manual specifies the minimum vertical vent
pipe and the amount of combustion air required for this
unit. The vent pipe must not be restricted and its 6 foot
minimum height (provided there are no elbows) must
terminate 2 feet above any obstruction within a 10 foot
radius.
When all requirements are followed, the unit will operate
properly and safely. However, there may still be a risk of
freezing due to negative draft if all the combustion appliances
in the area are not being supplied with a sufficient amount
of make-up air. A wood stove or furnace can rob the makeup air in the AquaStar’s vent pipe, leaving the cold infiltrating
air capable of freezing the cold water in the AquaStar heat
exchanger. More make up air is the solution. Follow the
instructions on venting and checking adequacy of make up
air. A HVAC specialist should be used to design solutions
for providing more make-up air if necessary.
Observe the following instructions concerning combustion
air.
Appliances located in unconfined spaces:
a) An unconfined space is one whose volume is greater
than 50 cubic feet per 1000 Btu per hour of the combined
rating of all appliances installed in the space. That would
be 5850 cubic feet for the AquaStar 125BL alone.
b) In unconfined spaces in buildings of conventional frame,
masonry, or metal construction, infiltration is normally
adequate to provide air for combustion, ventilation, and
5
dilution of flue gases.
Appliances located in confined spaces:
The confined space must be provided with two permanent
openings, one commencing within 12 inches of the top and
one commencing within 12 inches of the bottom of the
enclosure. Each opening must have a minimum free area
of one square inch per:
- 1000 Btu/hr if all air is taken from inside the building.
- 2000 Btu/hr if all air is taken from the outside by horizontal
ducts.
- 4000 Btu/hr if all air is taken from the outside by direct
openings or vertical ducts.
Or the confined space must be providedwith one permanent
openingor duct that is within 12 inches of the ceiling of the
enclosure. This opening must have a minimum free area of
one square inch per:
- 3000 Btu/hr if all air is taken from the outside by a direct
opening or vertical duct.
Louvers, grills and screens have a blocking effect. If the
effective free area is not known, increase the sizes of your
openings by 75% if your louvers are wood and by 30% if
your louvers are metal. Refer to the National Fuel Gas Code
for complete information. In buildings of tight construction
all air should be taken from outside.
which, if mounted directly to a brittle, friable board, such
as plasterboard, can cause failure of mounting.
In earthquake-prone zones, CEC recommends that
installers use a large washer and lag screw through the
existing holes used to hang the heater to affix the upper
third of the heater to the mounting board. To affix the lower
third of the heater, CEC recommends that two new holes
be drilled in the heater’s frame, each one 16 inches below
the top two holes, and that washers and lag screws be
used to secure the lower portion of the heater to a spacing
board.
Before installing the unit, be certain you have the correct
heater for your type of Gas – Propane or Natural Gas.
Identification labels are found on the shipping box, and on
the rating plate which is located on the right side panel of
the cover. Also, each burner orifice is stamped with a number
(79 for LPG and 120 for Natural Gas).

MOUNTING INSTALLATION
The Aquastar 125 BL is design certified for mounting on a
wall. Secure the two L shaped hooks provided with the
heater to a wall surface. Place them 13 ¼ inches apart as
shown in Fig 1.
Do not install this appliance on a carpeted wall or over floor
covering which is combustible, such as carpet. The heater
must be mounted on a wall using appropriate anchoring
materials. If wall is a stud wall sheathed with plasterboard,
it is recommended that support board(s), either 1x4’s
or 1/2" (minimum) plywood first be attached across a
pair of studs and then the heater should be attached
to the support boards. See Fig 1.

VENTING
Vent pipe connection. WARNING: Do not reduce
the vent pipe size.
This appliance must be vented to the outside following all
local ordinances and specifications for installing a gas
appliance vent or chimney. The venting system must be
designed and constructed so as to develop a positive flow
adequate to remove flue gasses to the outdoors. Minimum
vent size must be 5". Minimum height must be 6 feet,
provided there are no elbows. Termination of vent
must be 2 feet above any obstruction within a 10 foot
radius. Consult your gas utility or National Gas Fuel
Code if vent will have elbows or share venting with
another appliance.
The vent connector should have as much vertical rise
as possible (minimum 12”) before any horizontal run.
Optional powervent available in order to sidewall vent.
Contact your local dealer. The appliance must be located
as close as practicable to a chimney or vent. The vent pipe
sections must be secured to each other with sheet metal
screws. Keep in mind the minimum clearance from the top
of your heater. Remember also that single wall vent pipe
connectors require a 6 inch clearance from combustibles.
National Fuel Gas Code specifies double wall — Type “B”
— vent pipe be used in cold climates and for gas vents
running through attics. We consider double wall vent pipe
preferable in all circumstances. Any vent section greater
than 45 degrees from vertical is considered horizontal.
Horizontal sections of vent connectors must slope upwards
at least 1/4 inch for every foot of its horizontal length. Keep
the horizontal section short and avoid too many elbows.
Optional power vent available in order to sidewall vent.
Contact your local dealer.
To check the draft:
Close all doors and windows to the outside.
Turn on all appliances that force air out of the building.
These include all exhaust/ventilation fans, furnaces, clothes
dryers, wood burning stoves, etc.
Open all doors between the AquaStar and these other appliances.
Run the unit for at least 10 minutes. Then hold an ordinary
mirror at the side above the front shell. Any flue gases
backdrafting will cause the mirror to fog. This is a serious
health hazard and must be corrected. Poor venting can
result in soot building up inside the heater, overheating of
the heater and freezing of the heat exchanger in a freezing
environment.
The mirror will remain clear with a properly functioning draft.
WARNING
Note: The burners of an instantaneous “on demand” water
heater such as the AquaStar are only on at the time that
hot water is actually being used, the vent pipe is therefore
cold except for the short durations when hot water is being
used, it is therefore very important that the venting and air
supply be adequate to provide a good positive draft as soon
as the burners turn on. See venting guide on back page.
The AquaStar 125BL instantaneous water heaters have builtin draft diverters and are designed for indoor installation
only. The draft diverter outlet must be connected to a clear,
unobstructed vent of the same size, or larger.
In Canada, CAN/CGA-B149 Installation Code for detailed
requirements
In U.S.A., ANSI Z223.1 - NFPA 54, national Fuel Gas
Code for detailed requirements.
The vent connection for the AquaStar 125BL is 5 inches.
However, in CANADA, for installations at high altitude (20004500 feet above sea level) a six inch flue is required. A 5"
by 6" flue adaptor must be affixed to the flue collar of the
AquaStar with at least two screws. See figure 3.

USED ON HIGH ALTITUDE
Fig. 3 - Vent Adaptor for High Altitude Canadian
Installations
WARNING: Failure TO INCREASE THE VENT SIZE
TO SIX INCHES AND/or assure that the manifold pressure
is set to proper value listed for applications at high altitudes
will cause unsafe venting, asphyxiation, and will void CSA
Certification.
GAS CONNECTIONS and Gas Regulator
NOTE: The Aquastar 125 BL is supplied with a gas
pressure regulator that must be installed on the heater
before attaching the gas supply line. See figure 4.
Failure to install the gas regulator as shown in figure
4 will be a violation of CSA certification of the unit.
The regulator supplied with the heater is preset for
the gas shown on the rating plate to the correct
pressure. It is an appliance level regulator designed
for (low inlet) pressure (less than 1/2 Psig or 15” W.C.)
DO NOT connect to an unregulated or high pressure
propane line or to a high pressure commercial natural
gas line.

NOTE: The gas pressures specified below refer to
pressures taken at the pressure tap on the gas inlet
pipe just above the regulator (See Fig 4). These
readings should be taken while the heater is operating
at full input — i.e. with the gas control positioned all
the way to the right.
NOTE: Do not apply soap solution to pilot filter screen or
pilot orifice area. If you have a leak, shut off the gas. After
verifying that required gaskets are in place, tighten
appropriate fittings to stop leak. Turn the gas on and check
again with a soapy solution. Never test for gas leaks using
a match or flame.

GAS LINE SIZING
-It is strongly recommended that the Natural Gas pipe
be Black Iron pipe the entire distance from the outside
meter to the inlet of the Aquastar regulator. 1/2” Black
Iron pipe up to 10 feet, 3/4” Black Iron pipe up to 40
feet and 1” Black Iron pipe up to 150 feet distances.
Flex line tubing is NOT recommended, but if used
then oversize it.
-It is strongly recommended that the LP Gas pipe be
semi-rigid copper or Black Iron pipe from the outside
regulator to the inlet of the Aquastar regulator. For
semi-rigid copper piping: 5/8” up to 20 feet and 3/4”
up to 60 feet distances. For Black Iron piping: 1/2” up
to 45 feet and 3/4” up to 160 feet distances. Flex line
tubing is NOT recommended, but if used then oversize
it.
THESE FIGURES ARE FOR AQUASTAR SUPPLY ONLY,
ALL OTHER APPLIANCES IN THE BUILDING WILL NEED
TO BE INCLUDED IN THE PIPE SIZING.
National Fuel Gas Code requires that a sediment trap (drip
leg) be installed on gas appliances not so equipped. The
drip leg must be accessible and not subject to freezing
conditions. Install in accordance with the recommendations
of the serving gas supplier.
When facing the heater, the cold water inlet is on your right
and the hot water outlet is on your left.
Although water piping throughout your structure may be
other than copper, we recommend that copper piping be
used for at least three feet before and after the heater (follow
local codes if more stringent). Keep water inlet pipe to no
less than 1/2 inch diameter to allow the full flow capacity.
Remember that water pressure must be sufficient to activate
the heater when drawing hot water from the top floor. If the
hot and cold connections to the heater are reversed, the
heater will not function. The AquaStar 125BL is provided
with two flexible type connectors that must be connected
to the inlet and outlet fittings of the water valve as shown in
Figs 5 and 6. ½” Copper or brass fittings work best when
connected to the connectors. See Fig 6. These connectors
seal to the water valve by means of a union connection
with a washer type gasket at the joint. No pipe dope or
thread tape is to be used at these joints. Be certain there
are no loose particles or dirt in the piping. Blow out or flush
the lines before connecting to the AquaStar. Full port valves
should be installed on both the cold water feed line and the
hot water outlet line to facilitate servicing the heater.
For installation on a private well system, be sure that the
water pressure is set between 30 and 50 psi.

WARNING: The heater must be disconnected from
the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing
of that system at test pressures in excess of 0.5 psig.
The water heater must be isolated from the gas supply
piping system by closing the manual shutoff valve during
any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at
test pressures equal to or more than 0.5 psig.
The water heater, including the pressure regulator provided
with it, must not be operated at gas supply pressures in
excess of 0.5 psig. If overpressure has occurred, such as
through improper testing of the gas lines or malfunction of
the supply system, the gas valve and regulator must be
checked for safe operation. Make sure that the regulator
vent is protected against blockage.
When your connections are made, check for gas leaks at
all joints (not just the ones you made). Apply some soapy
water to all gas fittings and gas valve. Soap bubbles are
a sign of a leak.

Connecting the pressure relief valve (PRV)
A listed pressure relief valve supplied with the heater must
be installed at the time of installation. No valve is to be
placed between the PRV and the heater. No reducing
coupling or other restriction may be installed in the discharge
line.
The discharge line must be installed such that it allows
complete drainage of both the PRV and the line.
The location of the PRV must be readily accessible for
servicing or replacement., and be mounted as close to the
water heater as possible. See Fig 7.
To install the PRV, a suitable fitting connected to an
extension on a “T” fitting can be sweated to the hot water
line.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Before proceeding with the operation of the heater make
sure that the system is filled with water.
Open the cold water inlet supply to the heater fully.
Open a hot water faucet to permit the water to fill the heater
and the piping and to eliminate the air trapped in the system
Close the hot water faucet after the water flows freely and
all the air has escaped from the system. The water heater
is now ready to operate.
FOR YOUR SAFETY READ BEFORE
LIGHTING THE PILOT
Warning: If you do not follow these instructions
exactly, a fire or explosion may result causing property
damage, personal injury or loss of life
A. This appliance has a piezo-igniter for lighting the pilot
burner. When lighting the pilot, follow these instructions
exactly.
B. BEFORE LIGHTING smell all around the appliance area
for gas. Be sure to smell next to the floor because some
gas is heavier than air and will settle on the floor.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS
- Do not try to light any appliance.
- Do not touch any electric switch; do not use any phone
in your building
- Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s
phone. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.
- If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire
department.
C. Use only your hand to push in or turn the gas control
buttons. Never use tools. If a button will not push in, check
to make sure the buttons are being pushed in the proper
sequence. Follow these instructions exactly.
10
If control button(s) are jammed, close the gas supply and
call a qualified service technician. Attempted forceful repair
may result in a fire or explosion.
D. Do not use this appliance if any part has been under
water.
Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect
the appliance and to replace any part of the control system
and any gas control which has been under water.
LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS (as seen on front
cover of heater)
1. STOP! Read the safety information above on this plate.
2. The gas valve must be turned off by depressing the gas
valve off button ( ).
3. Wait five (5) minutes to clear out any gas. If you smell
gas, STOP! Follow “B” in the safety information above
on this plate. If you don’t smell gas, go to the next step.
4. The pilot burner is located behind the peephole in the
front center of the jacket directly below this instruction
plate.
5. Depress PILOT button ( ) and light pilot by pushing
PILOT INGITER button (
). This may have to be
repeated.
6. Observe the pilot flame through the peephole. The pilot
button (
) should be held down at least 15 seconds
with pilot burning. When the pilot button is released the
pilot should continue to burn.
- If the gas valve button does not pop up when released,
stop and immediately call your service technician or gas
supplier.
- If pilot does not stay lit, repeat steps 1 through 6.
- If pilot will not stay lit after several tries, depress the OFF
button (
), and call your service technician or gas
supplier.
7. When lit, depress the ON button (
). The heater will
now fire when water is drawn at a rate greater than the
threshold flow rate.
NOTE: If main burner should fail to ignite, make sure
pilot is burning. If not, repeat lighting steps 1 through 6.
TO TURN OFF GAS TO APPLIANCE
Depress the OFF button (
the heater.
) and close the gas supply to
INFORMATION ABOUT WATER TEMPERATURE
The AquaStar 125B LPL and 125B NGL water heaters
produce a 90°F temperature rise at 1.8 gallons per minute.
As the flow rate is increased above 1.8, gallons per minute,
the temperature will decrease.
MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE
(see maintenance table on back of manual)
Approximately once a year, the AquaStar should be checked
and cleaned. To remove the front cover, first remove the
incandescent particle tray, then unscrew the central screw
located at the bottom of the front cover. Pull main cover out
toward you and lift up and out. THE FOLLOWING
OPERATIONS SHOULD BE PERFORMED BY A
QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSON:
To access the pilot orifice, remove 2 screws holding pilot
assembly in place. Then loosen compression fittings to
expose pilot orifice.
Vent System: Should be checked annually. Clean and repair
as needed.
Water Valve (Part # 8707002478): The water valve on this
heater should be serviced periodically. Lubricate component
#25 on page 14 with a small amount of silicon, faucet or
lithium grease every two years to keep its o rings fresh and
pushrod sliding smoothly. Every 3-5 years replace
components #25 and #27 on page 14. The frequency will
depend on the mineral content of the water and conditions
of use or whenever signs of corrosion appear at the gas
and water valve joint. Periodically check that the water inlet
filter (#32 on page 14) is clean as well.
Pilot Flame: The pilot flame should burn with a clean sharp
blue flame and should resemble the diagram in Fig 8. If the
flame is yellow, or if the pilot knob has to remain depressed
for a long time in order to keep the pilot lighted, the pilot
burner and or the pilot burner orifice may need to be cleaned
(NG), the orifice may need to be replaced(LP), and or the
air screen may need cleaning. The pilot flame should envelop
approximately 10 mm (3/8") of the tip of the thermocouple.
If it is too small, the pilot burner must be cleaned. To obtain
a spark, the position of the Piezo igniter electrode should
be approximately 3 mm (1/8") from the pilot burner tip.
3mm
AIR SCREEN
PILOT ORIFICE
Fig. 9 - Pilot burner with air screen/ pilot orifice
Main Burner Flames: The main burner flames should be
blue, with a more intense blue cone in the center core.
Yellow flames could be a sign of wrong size gas orifices or
dirty burners, or a blockage on the heat exchangers fins. If
some burners have yellow flames while others have good
flames, it is likely that dust, lint or spider webs have partially
clogged the burner venturis. To clean the burners contact a
gas service person
Piezo Electrode
Mineral Scale Build-up: The AquaStars heater, when
operated at lower temperatures settings, do not accumulate
mineral build-up. If however, the heater is used at the higher
temperature settings and the water has a high mineral
content, periodic descaling may be necessary. The heating
coils should be flushed with a descaling solution. Consult
your dealer or Controlled Energy for instructions.

To clean the pilot burner and/ or the pilot orifice : Turn
off the gas at the unit. Remove the cover of the heater. To
do so, remove incandescent particle tray and unscrew the
central screw located at the bottom of the front cover. Pull
main cover out toward you and lift up and out. Pull the air
screen off, wash it and blow any lint off (See Fig 9). The
pilot orifices should also be cleaned or replaced. Do not
enlarge the orifice. Do not use any wire or sharp object
to clean orifices. Natural gas orifices are large enough
that you can usually clean them by blowing through them.
LP orifices, on the other hand, are too small to clean and
should be replaced. See #3 in Trouble Shooting Section.
Introduction
The AquaStar 125 BL burners are activated by a water flow
valve. Numerous water related problems can cause this
water valve to malfunction such as: Insufficient water flow
volume to activate the burners at its minimum flow
requirement; Dirt in the water flow valve causing it to
malfunction; Sediment build-up in faucet aerators, or shower
heads; Uneven pressures between cold and hot. (with single
lever faucets) Plumbing cross overs. These water flow
related problems can cause the heater to deliver less than
its full output, or to fail to ignite or to shut down completely.
Problems are stated in upper case, bold face. Most common
causes for the problems follow in order of likelihood. The
suggested solutions require that the cover be taken off. To
do this, remove incandescent particle tray and unscrew
the central screw located at the bottom of the front cover.
Pull main cover out toward you and lift up and out.
PILOT LIGHT WILL NOT LIGHT
1. No gas to the AquaStar
A. Gas cock on gas line may not be open.
B. Gas valve button has not been pushed in on “PILOT”
position.
11
C. Gas regulator may be shut or damaged.
Tighten the thermocouple nut snugly but not too tight.
2. In-line AquaStar gas regulator jammed (usually on
LP gas)
Replace or unlock the regulator. Note: The regulator
furnished with the heater is designed for low gas pressure.
Excessive pressure will lock it up (propane only).
Locking usually happens if the gas pressure between the
gas tank (propane) and the water heater’s gas regulator
has not been reduced. See page 2 for recommended correct
gas pressure. To unlock a regulator, consult your gas
supplier.
4. Poor circuit connections at the ECO. (Energy CutOff overheat protection)
Oxidation or looseness of the ECO terminal connections
can result in millivolt current loss through the thermocouple
safety circuit. Clean terminals with very fine sand paper or
an eraser and reconnect ECO leads.
3. Pilot orifice clogged and/or air screen dirty, or pilot
gas filter is dirty.
Clogging of the pilot burner can be caused by dust and any
suspended matter contained in the ambient air. Although
the filters can lengthen the cleaning intervals, they can never
completely prevent such clogging. In consequence the gas
jet issuing from the pilot orifice is reduced and or the air
mixture is reduced. The pilot flame is weak and thus can
no longer heat the thermocouple sufficiently. For cleaning
purposes, the air filter screen is pulled off, washed and
blown out. The pilot orifice has likewise to be cleaned or
exchanged. To clean the pilot consult a gas service person.
4. Air in the Gas Line
Note: Normally this is a problem only at the time of initial
installation, after the pipes have been worked on, or after a
propane tank has been allowed to empty, or after the heater
has been shut down for a long time.
Bleed all the air trapped in the gas line. Because of the
very small pilot orifice (especially on LP gas models),
bleeding out all the air could take several minutes. Depress
the pilot button ( ) until all the air has escaped, and the
gas has arrived. During this process, press repeatedely on
the piezo ignition button until the pilot flame has ignited.
PILOT LIGHTS BUT FLAME GOES OUT WHEN BUTTON
IS RELEASED
1. Pilot push button was not pushed in far enough or
was not held in long enough
Once pilot flame has been lighted. Hold button pushed in
for at least 15 seconds to give time for the pilot flame to
properly heat the tip of the thermocouple.
2. Pilot flame improperly aimed or is too weak so it
is not properly heating the tip of the thermocouple.
The Pilot flame should be a sharp blue flame and aimed at
the tip of the thermocouple so that it envelops 10 mm (3/8
“) of the thermocouple tip. Pilot flame has to be properly
aimed at the thermocouple. See Fig 8.
3. Poor thermocouple connection at the
electromagnet
Note: Electromagnet is part #8707201094 located on the
right side of the gas valve behind the piezo pushbutton
assembly. Check the tightness of the thermocouple
connection nut at the electromagnet: The Electro-magnet
connection is a large aluminum 17mm hex head nut. The
thermocouple end is a 5 mm brass nut which screws into
the 17 mm nut.
12
5. Faulty ECO (part #8707206017)
If cleaning the terminals attached to the ECO did not fix
the problem, connect a jumper wire between the two wires
and try to relight the pilot. If the pilot flame now remains
on, replace the ECO. If the flame still goes out when the
button is released, the ECO is not defective. Go to next
step.
6. Faulty thermocouple (part #8747202083) or
electromagnet) Unless these 2 parts are at least 8
to 10 years old, it is very unlikely that they are
faulty. Before testing, reconfirm that #2 is absolutely
correct, and that all connections are clean and
tight.
To test the thermocouple, disconnect the thermocouple lead
to the ECO. Insert a multi-meter probe into the thermocouple
lead and attach or hold the other lead to the metal gas
valve (DC common). Light the pilot flame and hold button,
meter reading should be 24 mVDC or more. If the reading
is 24 mVDC or more the thermocouple is good. To test the
electromagnet, re-connect the thermocouple lead to the
ECO, light pilot and hold button while taking a reading
between the ECO leads and the metal gas valve (DC
common). The reading should drop to 19 mVDC or less. If
it does not, replace the electromagnet.
Consult a gas service person to test and change the
thermocouple.
BURNERS DO NOT IGNITE WHEN HOT WATER IS
TURNED ON OR WHEN A CIRCULATOR PUMP IS
OPERATING
1. Pilot is not on.
Light the pilot. See lighting instructions.
2. Gas valve button not positioned on Burner Position
Be sure once the pilot flame is on, that after a 15 to 20
second wait, the main burner button (
) is pushed all
the way in.
3. Water flow rate at hot water tap is too low.
Note: The AquaStar models 125BL require 1.8 gallon per
minute flow to activate the burners. This is a flow which
would fill a quart jar in 8 seconds.
4 . Cold water inlet filter on heater is dirty.
Remove filter and clean. This screen filter is located at the
inlet side of the brass water valve (fig 11, #32). Check and
clean faucet aerators too.
5. Inadequate pump used on a recirculating loop
If unit is plumbed in a recirculating loop system verify that
the primary circulator pump is sized properly. GF 26-96,
Taco 009 or equivalent is required. See diagram on page 4.
6. Crossover in household plumbing
The AquaStar burner activates when there is sufficient water
pressure drop in the AquaStar water valve assembly — ie.
when a hot water faucet is opened. If there is a crossover in
the plumbing, the necessary pressure drop in the AquaStar
will be insufficient, or totally eliminated. A plumbing
crossover can be caused by a bad washer at a single lever
faucet or incorrect plumbing or a mixing valve in the line,
etc. which permits hot and cold water to mix in the
plumbing. The crossover will create a back pressure in the
system preventing the pressure drop in the Aquastar (i.e.
cold water is entering the water heater from both sides and
the burners will not come on).
To confirm there is no crossover in the plumbing, shut off
the cold water supply to the AquaStar. Open your hot water
taps.
There should not be any water flowing. If there is water
flowing, there is a crossover in the plumbing. This is a
plumbing problem, not an Aquastar problem. Please contact
your plumber.
7. Water valve parts may be dirty or components
damaged.
First check that the venturi is free from dirt particles.
Water valve and component parts must be totally free of
dirt. In hard water areas, mineral deposits can eventually
(3 to 5 years in hard water areas) corrode the water valve
parts to a point where they will need replacing. Any sign of
moisture or corrosion at the joint of the water valve and the
gas valve is a sign that the water valve assembly
components need to be replaced immediately.
Note: Water valve for model 125BL is part # 8707002478
for both LP and NG models. (Contact service person to
clean water valve or replace if corrosion is present).
PILOT LIGHT GOES OUT DURING OR AFTER USE
1. Gas pressure too low
Very low gas pressure may be caused by low delivered
gas pressure, a jammed gas regulator or undersized gas
lines. If the gas lines are undersized, there may still be the
specified static gas line pressure. However when the water
valve opens,and gas enters the burners, the pressure could
drop sharply, causing the pilot flame to go out. Have a gas
technician confirm the gas pressure both static and at
maximum Btu output. Specifications for your heater are on
page 2.
2. Pilot may be dirty or weak
See Page 9 for instructions on pilot maintenance.
3. Burners are not shutting down immediately when
hot water is turned off or when a circulator pump
has stopped operating
Note: If burners don’t shut down immediately when the hot
water is turned off, the heater will overheat and the ECO
will shut-off the gas. Rebuild the water valve assembly using
the repair kit from CEC (part#8 703 406 214).
WATER IS TOO HOT
1. Gas flow is higher than necessary.
Move gas control slide to the left.
2. Temperature (aquastat) control is set too high
If unit is plumbed in a recirculating loop system the aquastat
temperature relay for the primary circulator pump is possibly
set too high.
WATER IS NOT HOT ENOUGH
1. Water flow rate is too high.
Decrease the flow rate.
2. Gas flow is not optimal
Move gas control slide to the right.
3. Temperature (aquastat) control is set too low
If unit is plumbed in a recirculating loop system the aquastat
temperature relay for the primary circulator pump is possibly
set too low.
4. Btu input is too low due to insufficient gas pressure
It is extremely important for a tankless instantaneous
water heater to have the right size gas line to obtain
the correct gas pressure
See specifications on page 2. Unlike storage tank water
heaters, the burners of a tankless water heater must be
very powerful to heat water instantaneously since they do
this only at the time hot water is actually being used. It is
therefore imperative that the gas pressure requirement be
met exactly. Insufficient gas pressure will directly affect
the water temperature at the time of usage. See pages 2
for correct gas pressure settings.
5. Btu input is too low due to insufficient gas supply
Make sure your main gas line is fully opened. If using LP
gas, be sure that the size of the propane tank is adequate
to supply the required gas pressure.
6. Cold water is mixing with the hot water between
the AquaStar and the outlet
Compare water temperature at outlet of the AquaStar (hold
the AquaStar’s outlet pipe with your hand) and at the tap. If
these two are very different, check for mixing valve or
plumbing crossover (see “MAIN BURNERS WILL NOT
IGNITE...” paragraph #5).
7. Parts in water flow valve are corroded so that the
gas passage is not fully opening
Contact your service person or Controlled Energy.
4. Temperature controls are set too high
If unit is plumbed in a recirculating loop system insure that
the aquastat or relay for the primary circulator pump is set
for no hotter than 140°F. This is necessary to prevent pilot
outage due to overheating. The temperature slide control
on the 125BL may also need to be lowered to prevent
overheating.
13
HOT WATER TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATES
1. Cold water is mixing with the hot water between
the AquaStar and the outlet (if not being used with
a circulator pump)
See #5 under “Burners do Not Ignite When Hot Water Turned
On”.
2. Storage in tank (recirculating system) has not fully
recovered
Storage capacity in tank is inadequate. Increasing tank
size, setting slide control higher for a fast recovery or adding
a second 125BL for even a faster recovery is suggested.
3. Insufficient gas pressure
Note required gas pressures (page 2) and consult gas service person.
