PV500-44 12/13 Power VT® Plus WATER HEATER IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE
It takes only 5 seconds of skin contact with 140°F water to cause a
second degree burn! You must protect against high water temperatures at all
lavatories, tubs, showers and other points of hot water contact.
Accidental scalding from high water temperatures is a greater
risk in some types of installations. Some examples are:
HOMES FOR THE MENTALLY HANDICAPPED
HOMES FOR THE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED
HOSPITALS AND NURSING HOMES
ELDER CARE FACILITIES AND REST HOMES
ORPHANAGES AND CHILD CARE FACILITIES
OTHER INSTALLATIONS - WHERE RESPONSE TO CONTACT WITH HOT
WATER MAY BE SLOWER OR WHERE THE DANGER OF HOT WATER
CONTACT IS GREATER
Thermostatically controlled mixing valves must be used in the
design of the potable hot water system.
Potable hot water should be tempered to no more than
110°F when used for bathing or other personal uses.

CONDENSATE DRAIN, TRAP & DISPOSAL
The POWER VT PLUS water heater is designed to produce significant amounts of condensate because of its high
efficiency. Condensate occurs naturally when water vapor in combustion gases is cooled below the dew point. Two
3/4” NPT drain connections are provided. A trap with three inches of standing water below the bottom of the heater
(3” above the base of the I-Beam skids), and no higher than the bottom of the heater must be field installed as part of
the condensate piping.
WARNING: A trap with three inches of standing water as described in these instructions must be included as
part of the condensate piping system. This trap is required to keep hazardous products of combustion from
continually entering the room through the condensate piping. Failure to provide this trap can cause,
personal injury, exposure to hazardous materials or loss of life.

3.
4.
5.
Installing the water heater on a 4 inch to 6 inch housekeeping pad is recommended to ensure proper
condensate drainage.
Attach a 3/4” CPVC Coupling and Tee to the economizer condensate drain, then use 3/4” CPVC pipe to plumb
from the heater condensate outlet to economizer Tee, to a 3” CPVC trap and on to a suitable floor drain or
collection system. Each condensing appliance must drain separately. Do not combine condensate drains from
multiple condensing appliances into a single drain pipe.
Each condensate drain must contain a trap or siphon/pigtail to provide at least 3 inches of standing water, to
prevent flue gas flow through the condensate piping. To construct the trap, connect to the 3/4” condensate
drain, route the piping downward until the standing water in the trap is not higher than the bottom of the water
heater.
Install the condensate plumbing as shown in the following diagram.
All condensate plumbing must be protected from freezing. Do not locate the condensate piping such that an ice
dam of frozen condensate can block the outlet.
Condensate Piping and Trap with Optional Condensate Neutralizer

6.6 Appliance Isolation during Gas Supply Piping Pressure Test
1. The appliance and its provided manual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system
during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of ½ PSI (3.5 kPa).
2. 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 less than ½ PSI (3.5
kPa).
3. The appliance and its gas connection must be leak-tested before placing it in operation.
6.7 Gas Connection
1. Safe operation of unit requires adequate gas supply with the required static and dynamic (flow) pressures. Actual
piping selection depends on many variables that must be carefully considered by the gas piping system designer.
Do not select gas pipe sizes based only on the supplied tables. These tables are for use by the gas piping
system designer as a reference in checking pipe size selections.
2. Gas pipe size may be larger than heater connection.
3. Installation of a union is suggested for ease of service.
4. Install a manual main gas shutoff valve, outside of the appliance gas connection and before the appliance
provided appliance manual shutoff gas valve, when Codes require.
5. The gas system installer should clearly identify the emergency shut-off device.
6. A sediment trap (drip leg) MUST be provided in the inlet of the gas connection to the unit.
7. The code compliant vent limiters are designed and must respond to pressure changes in the installation
environment, as opposed to outdoor pressure. For proper operation, do not connect to outdoor atmosphere.
15
PV500-44 12/13 Power VT® Plus WATER HEATER 7
COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION AIR
Provisions for adequate combustion and ventilation air to the mechanical room must be in accordance with Section
5.3 “Air for Combustion and Ventilation” of the latest edition of the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 and/or
CAN/CSA B149, Installation Codes or applicable provisions of the local building codes.
7.1 Equipment Located In Confined Spaces
Equipment located in confined spaces requires two openings installed within 12” (30.5 cm) from the top and bottom
of the room to assure adequate combustion air and proper ventilation. The total input of all gas utilization equipment
installed in the room must be used to determine the required minimum air volume needed for combustion, ventilation
and dilution of flue gasses.

All Air From Outdoors:
Each opening requires a minimum free area of 1 square inch per 4000 Btu/hr input if directly communicating
with the outdoors or communicating to the outdoors through vertical ducts.
Each opening requires a minimum free area of 1 square inch per 2000 Btu/hr input if communicating with the
outdoors through horizontal ducts.

All Air From Inside The Building:
Each opening requires a minimum free area of 1 square inch per 1000 Btu/hr input, but not less than 100 square
inches (0.06 m2).

Combination Of Air From The Indoors And From The Outdoors:
Refer to National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 and/or CAN/CSA B149, Installation Codes or applicable
provisions of the local building codes.
NOTE: This unit may be installed with a remote air intake system which uses a make-up air duct to draw combustion
air directly from outdoors.
WARNING: Adequate clean combustion air must be provided to the appliance. Under no circumstances
should the appliance ever be under a negative pressure. Particular care should be taken when exhaust fans,
compressors, air handling units, etc. may rob air from the appliance. The combustion air supply must be
completely free of any chemical or fumes, which may be corrosive to the appliance. Some common chemical
fumes to avoid are fluorocarbons and other halogenated compounds, most commonly present as
refrigerants or solvents, such as Freon, trichloroethylene, perchlorethylene, chlorine, etc. These chemicals,
when in contact with the equipment or when burned, form acids which quickly attack the tubes, flue
collector, stack and other appliance and auxiliary equipment. The result of inadequate clean combustion air
or negative pressure can be premature unwarranted product failure or unsafe operation producing carbon
monoxide that could escape into the building. Exposure to carbon monoxide can lead to injury or death.
7.2 Maximum Allowed Remote Combustion Air Inlet Length (Equivalent Length)
A vertical or horizontal remote air inlet system can be connected to this appliance without modification. The
maximum length of field supplied single wall pipe, such as galvanized ventilation pipe, is shown in the chart below
titled Maximum Air Inlet Duct Equivalent Length. Use metal tape or RTV sealant to seal each pipe joint.

To determine the maximum straight length of duct allowed, use the Duct Fitting Equivalent Length chart below to find
the total equivalent length for all duct fittings in your combustion air system. Then subtract this number of feet from
the total equivalent length allowed in Maximum Air Inlet Duct Equivalent Length chart above. The sum of this
calculation is the maximum length of straight duct allowed. If a longer length is required, repeat the calculation using
a larger duct size. No additional deduction is required for the addition of the duct system terminal.

VENTING
8.1 Venting the Power VT Plus “SANI” models:
Power VT Plus models with “SANI” in the model number are designed for operation only with stainless steel venting
listed by UL, ULC, ETL or CSA for Category IV, positive pressure, gas appliance venting. Installation requires a field
supplied stainless steel adapter from the 6-5/8 female economizer outlet to the specific size (six inch minimum) and
model vent used. Follow the vent manufacturer’s instructions for installation, sealing, supporting and terminating their
vent system. Do not use plastic venting of any type on models with SANI in the model number. Do not use a
barometric damper with the Power VT Plus positive pressure vent.
WARNING: On Power VT Plus models with “SANI” in the model number, use only stainless steel venting
listed by a nationally recognized testing laboratory for Category IV, positive pressure, gas appliance venting.
Use of plastic pipe of any type or use of venting materials other than specified in these instructions can
result in failure of the venting system and/or exposure to carbon monoxide which can result in property
damage, personal injury or death.
8.2 Venting the Power VT Plus:
The Power VT Plus (except models with “SANI” in the model number, see above) is designed for operation with a
"positive pressure vent system" constructed of locally obtained 6" or larger schedule 40 or 80 solid CPVC pipe. Do
not use CPVC pipe with cell/foam type construction (such as “CellCore”) or other non-solid CPVC plastic pipe. Larger
solid CPVC pipe may be substituted, however a solid CPVC increaser from 6” to the larger size must be used for
connection to the stainless steel 6-5/8” female flue outlet from the water heater economizer. Do not insulate the
plastic vent pipe. Stainless steel venting listed by UL, ULC, ETL or CSA for Category IV positive pressure gas
appliance venting may be used instead of CPVC plastic pipe venting. If such stainless steel venting is used, follow
the vent manufacturer’s instructions for installation, sealing, supporting and terminating their vent system. Do not use
a barometric damper with the Power VT Plus positive pressure vent.
WARNING: On Power VT Plus, (except models with “SANI” in the model number, see above) use only solid
CPVC pipe or stainless steel venting listed by a nationally recognized testing laboratory for Category IV
positive pressure gas appliance venting. Use of ABS pipe, CPVC pipe, pipe with cell/foam type construction,
plastic vent pipe other than solid CPVC or use of venting materials other than specified in these instructions
can result in failure of the venting system and/or exposure to carbon monoxide which can result in property
damage, personal injury or death.
WARNING: Do not vent this water heater into an existing or traditional gas vent or chimney or combine the
vent with any other appliance. Such venting could result in failure of the venting system and/or exposure to
carbon monoxide which can result in property damage, personal injury or death.
8.3 Maximum Category IV Vent Length (Equivalent Length)
A vertical or horizontal remote Category IV vent system must be used with this appliance. The maximum length of
field supplied Category IV vent is shown in the chart below titled Category IV Vent Equivalent Length.

Pipe fittings reduce the maximum allowable vent length. Use the Category IV vent manufacturer’s equivalent length
deduction for all elbows, terminations, etc. If the information is not readily available from the vent manufacturer, use
the Vent Fitting Equivalent Length chart below to find the total equivalent length for all vent fittings in your
combustion air system. Then subtract this number of feet from the total equivalent length allowed in Maximum
Category IV Vent Equivalent Length chart above. The sum of this calculation is the maximum length of straight vent
allowed. If a longer length is required, repeat the calculation using a larger vent size. When using this chart, no
additional deduction is required for the addition of the vent system terminal.

8.4 CPVC Vent System Design, Construction and Assembly:
The Power VT Plus water heater can be vented either vertically, through a ceiling or roof, or horizontally through a
wall. The solid CPVC, (CPVC not allowed on models with “SANI” in the model number) or stainless steel venting
listed by a nationally recognized testing laboratory for Category IV positive pressure gas appliance venting can be
routed to the outdoors in any direction, from the flue outlet of the water heater economizer, except down. The vent
must be installed and supported every four feet to slope downward toward the water heater vent connection with at
least ¼ inch drop per linear foot of horizontal vent run, to allow proper drainage of accumulated condensation.
1. Read and follow the information, instructions and warnings in “VENTING” section.
2. Do not insulate the plastic vent pipe.
3. Clean and deburr all solid CPVC (plastic pipe not allowed for venting models with “SANI” in the model number)
pipe ends and the joint area and trial assemble the vent before joining with CPVC cement, following the CPVC
cement manufacturer’s instructions for making sound air and water tight joints.
4. Dry-fit a solid 6” CPVC pipe into the female economizer flue outlet. Remove the pipe and apply a liberal coating
of room temperature vulcanizing (RTV) adhesive to the inside of the stainless steel economizer flue outlet and
to the outside of the plastic pipe. Before the RTV sets, slide the plastic coupling or elbow back into the RTV
coated economizer flue outlet while rotating the pipe approximately 1/8 of a turn. Inspect and apply RTV to the
inside and outside of the plastic to stainless steel joints to provide a continuous water and gas tight assembly.
5. Drill a pilot hole through the top of the stainless steel economizer flue outlet and into the 6” CPVC pipe and
attach with a sheet metal screw (stainless steel screws are recommended). Repeat this step adding a sheet
metal screw to each side of this economizer flue outlet to positively attach the pipe to the flue outlet. Do not drill
or use a screw in the bottom of the flue connector or pipe, as condensate might drip from this point.
6. Vent support – The vent system must be supported at intervals no greater than four feet, to prevent sagging
and distortion.
7. Testing for leaks - All joints in the vent system must be air and water tight. After the vent is assembled, close
the end of the vent with a taped plastic bag or some other temporary closure. With the gas supply turned off,
energize the combustion blower to apply air pressure to the vent system. Spray each joint and vent connection
with commercially available leak detection liquid to confirm no air is escaping from any point. Repair any leaks
and retest. After testing is complete, de-energize the combustion blower, wipe clean the leak detection liquid
and REMOVE the temporary vent closure.
8. The solid CPVC vent pipe (Plastic venting is not allowed for models with “SANI” in the model number) must be
sealed to the wall or roof at the point where it passes through the wall or roof, to prevent rain, insects or flue
products from entering the living space.
9. For proper vent operation and to protect the gas vent from wind and weather, attach to the outdoor end of the
vent the UL listed vent termination supplied with the Power VT Plus water heater. This termination is required
for proper operation and no substitution is allowed.
10. Do not use a barometric damper with the Power VT Plus positive pressure vent.
19
PV500-44 12/13 Power VT® Plus WATER HEATER 8.5 Vertical or Horizontal Vent Termination:
1. The vent terminal must have a minimum clearance of 4 feet (1.22 m) horizontally from, and in no case be
located above or below, unless a 4 foot (1.22 m) horizontal distance is maintained from electric meters, gas
meters, regulators and relief equipment.
2. The vent cap must terminate at least 3 feet (0.91 m) above any forced air inlet within 10 feet (3.05 m).
3. The vent shall terminate at least 4 feet (1.22 m) below, 4 feet (1.22 m) horizontally from or 1 foot (0.3 m) above
any door, window or building air inlet to the building.
4. The vent system shall terminate at least 1 foot (0.3 m) above grade and at least 1 foot (0.3m) above possible
snow accumulation levels and shall terminate at least 7 feet (2.13 m) above grade when located adjacent to
public walkways or gathering areas.
5. To avoid a blocked flue condition, keep the vent cap clear of snow, ice, leaves, debris, etc.
6. The vent must not exit over a public walkway, near soffit vents or crawl space vents or other areas where
condensate or vapor could create a nuisance or hazard or cause property or could be detrimental to the
operation of regulators, relief valves or other equipment.
7. A horizontal vent must extend one foot beyond the wall.
8. A horizontal vent terminal must not be installed closer than 3 feet (0.91m) from an inside corner of an L-shaped
structure.
9. A vertical vent must exhaust outside the building at least 3 feet (0.91m) above the point of the exit and at least 2
feet (0.61 m) above the highest point of the roof within a 10-foot (3.05 m) radius of the termination.
10. A vertical termination less than 10 feet (0.91 m) from a parapet wall must be a minimum of 2 feet (0.61 m)
higher than the parapet wall.
8.6 Combining Category IV Vents
Combined Power VT Plus Category IV gas vent systems must incorporate an Exhausto or Tjernlund variable speed,
modulating, mechanical draft inducer capable of maintaining the appropriate negative draft at the end of the common
flue, to assure that all water heaters in the combined vent system operate with a negative draft. Do not exceed
negative 0.25” W.C. See “Combining Vents with a Draft Inducer” illustration below.
WARNING: Do not connect multiple water heaters vents into a single unpowered or fixed speed powered
vent. This could cause unsafe operation and the potential for poisonous carbon monoxide to enter occupied
areas. Such improper installation can cause property damage, personal injury, exposure to hazardous
materials or loss of life.

OPERATING AND SAFETY CONTROLS
WARNING: Turn off all electrical service to the appliance when accessing the limit or other controls located
inside the control cabinet. This cabinet contains High Voltage wiring and terminals. If the electrical service is
not turned off and these terminals are touched, a dangerous shock causing personal injury or loss of life
could occur. Close and fasten the control cabinet cover before restoring electrical service to the appliance.
9.1 Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve(s)
A Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve(s) sized in accordance with the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code is
installed in the tank.
WARNING: Secure the relief valve pipe to a suitable floor drain such that very hot water does not openly
splash during a significant relief valve discharge. If the relief valve pipe is not routed and secured to a
suitable drain, hot water discharge can result in property damage, scalding and personal injury or loss of
life.
 The drain pipe may not be smaller than the relief valve opening and must be secured to prevent it from lifting out
of the drain under discharge pressure.
 CAUTION: Do not install a reducing coupling, valve or other restriction in the T&P relief valve(s)
discharge line. The discharge line shall allow complete drainage of the valve and line. Relief valves should be
manually operated at least once a year.
 Thermal Expansion - A relief valve that periodically discharges may result from thermal expansion, if the water
heater is installed in a system closed by components, such as a backflow preventer or check valve in the cold
water supply. These systems must be provided with means to control expansion. Contact a water heater or
plumbing professional to resolve this situation.
 CAUTION: Do not plug the relief valve, as this will eliminate the critical water temperature and pressure
protection it provides.
9.2 Operating Temperature Control
An adjustable digital operating control is located in the front control panel. The control is factory pre-set at
approximately 120ºF. To adjust the setpoint to deliver the desired water temperature, press and release the Set 1 key
on the face of the control. When setpoint adjustment is enabled, use the arrow keys to adjust the set point to the
desired system temperature. See TempTrac Electronic Controller Panel in this manual for more information.
9.3 High Water Temperature Limit Control
Appliances are equipped with adjustable limit and high limit controls to control the maximum discharge water
temperature. These controls are located inside the control cabinet and are accessed by removing the bottom cover.
The high limit control is optionally available as the manual reset type and may be reset by pressing the limit reset
button accessible through the control panel cover. Pressing the reset on the High Limit Control will not cause the
control to reset until the water temperature has dropped below the set point of the manual reset High Limit Control.
The Lower Limit is of the auto reset type and can be dial adjusted to operate just above the set point of the main
Operating Temperature Control.
9.4 Cathodic Protection
PVI water heaters do not utilize cathodic protection. However, in hot water systems utilizing cathodic protection,
hydrogen gas can be produced when the hot water system has not been used for a long period of time (generally
two weeks or more). Hydrogen gas is extremely flammable. To prevent the possibility of injury under these
conditions, one of the hot water system faucets should be opened for several minutes before using any electrical
device connected to the hot water system. If hydrogen is present, there will be an unusual sound such as air
escaping through the pipe as the hot water begins to flow. Do not smoke, have open flames or turn electrical
switches on or off near the faucet at the time it is open.
9.5 Electronic Low Water Cut-Off (Optional)
When the water level is above the electrode position in the tank, the reset pushbutton will energize the control (LED
will be lit). The control remains energized until the water level recedes below the electrode position (LED will not be
lit). Unless otherwise specified, there is a three-second time delay on decreasing level. Water level must be below
tank probe location for full three seconds before control de-energizes.

PV500-44 12/13 Power VT® Plus WATER HEATER 10
TEMPTRAC™ ELECTRONIC CONTROLLER PANEL
10.1 Principle Of Operation
The water heater operates to satisfy the setpoint of the TempTrac digital control whose sensor is located near the
top of the water heater tank. Demand (flow) will typically create a drop in temperature, thus activating the water
heater to add heat to the stored water. This setpoint is the desired water temperature to maintain.
10.2 Lower LED Readout
The default display of the lower readout (Probe 1) is the stored water temperature sensed near the top of the water
heater tank. This is used to regulate the temperature of the water heater.
10.3 Upper LED Readout
The default display of this readout will display “nu”. This readout can display a temperature reading from a 2nd
probe. The 2nd probe can be installed in a thermal well (this optional probe and thermal well, with heat conductive
paste, is custom and must be ordered from your PVI representative or directly from PVI) to remotely monitor water
temperatures, such as blended water temperature, downstream of a thermal mixing valve or a remote storage tank.
Both Probe 1 and Probe 2 temperatures are available for monitoring through the optional MODBUS RTU interface.

PV500-44 12/13 Power VT® Plus WATER HEATER 11.2 The Following Describes The Functions Of Each Of These Terminals And The Factory-Installed Options
Required To Activate The Terminals:
Note: Terminal P1-P2 are functional only when the water heater is equipped with the factory installed options
required to activate the terminals. Terminals R1-R2, A1-A2, C1-C2 and T1-T2 are standard pre-wired functions on
all models.
R1-R2: Used to activate / de-activate water heater from remote master control.
Terminals are wired to a relay in a remote Energy Management System. When relay closes, circuit from R1 to R2 is
completed and appliance controls are enabled. Appliance ships from factory with jumper between terminals
Remove jumper when connecting to a remote controller.
A1-A2: Used to activate a remote alarm, signaling shutdown of combustion control.
Provides a maximum 10 amp relay contact closure when the flame safeguard terminates combustion due to a
tripped safety interlock (i.e.: air proving switch, high limit switch, low water flow switch or flame sensor, etc.).
P1-P2: Activates remote equipment and requires confirmation signal back to the appliance.
Provides a maximum 10-amp relay contact closure to activate a remote device (i.e.: mechanical room air louvers,
draft inducer or power vent, etc.). The remote device must send return signal via proving switch to confirming proper
operation to terminals C1-C2, prior to the appliance being able to energize. Options Required - Consult Factory.
C1-C2: Used for proving operation of remote device.
Terminals are wired to a proving switch on a remote device such as a power venter. When relay closes, circuit from
C1 to C2 is completed and appliance controls are enabled. This appliance ships form the factory with jumper
between terminals.
T1-T2: Used for external modulation control.
To connect external modulation control, disconnect and cap the blue wire connected to terminal T2 and connect the
external modulating signal to terminals T1 (positive) and T2 (negative).
12
SEQUENCE OF OPERATION
1. Incoming 120VAC
a. Full time power to the Main Control Switch
b. Full time power to the Variable Frequency Drive
2. Power On - When the main control switch is turned on:
a. 120v is applied to the step-down transformer (24v)
b. 120v is applied to the L.W.C.O. terminal L1 (if used)
c.
120v is applied to the Fenwal Flame Safeguard Control
d. 24v is applied to the TempTrac operating temperature control terminal L1
3. Call For Heat - If the TempTrac operating control senses a call-for-heat condition:
a. The High Gas Pressure and Low Gas Pressure Switch (both optional) are energized and their safe
condition is proved.
b. The thermostat contact on the Fenwal Flame Safeguard Control is energized.
c.
The flame control will then verify the Airflow-Proving Switch is in the open position, which must exist before
the blower is powered.
d. Energizing the blower should close the airflow proving switch. If the airflow-proving switch is not in the
closed position, the flame control’s fan terminals F1-F2 will power the Variable Frequency Drive (VFD)
blower system at low speed for pre-purge.
e. If the airflow-proving switch does not close following the blower being energized, the flame control will
lockout.
25
PV500-44 12/13 Power VT® Plus WATER HEATER 4. Proof of Air Pressure Switch - The control will look for a signal from the airflow-proving switch, indicating that
the blower is operating:
a. When the airflow generated by the blower is sufficient to cause the differential air switch to close, the 15 second pre-purge delay will start.
b. During this period any flue products or combustible gases which may have settled in the water heater are
evacuated.
5. Heat-Up - Following the pre-purge delay, the hot surface igniter will be energized:
a. The flame control will monitor the current applied to the hot surface igniter.
b. If the flame control determines the proving current meets the threshold, a dwell time delay starts to assure
the hot surface igniter has sufficient time to reach ignition temperature.
6. Ignition - When dwell time is completed a 4-second Trial for Ignition (TFI) period is initiated:
a. The Delay-On (Low Fire Hold) Relay and the Gas Safety Valves are energized.
b. During TFI the flame safeguard control will monitor the flame using flame rectification through the hot
surface igniter.
c.
If the flame control senses the presence of flame before the end of the TFI period, the igniter will be deenergized and the flame control will continue to monitor the flame, through the igniter, until the operating
thermostat ends the call for heat condition.
7. Loss of Flame Signal:
a. If the igniter fails to sense flame at any time, the igniter and gas valve will be de-energized and the flame
control will reset and begin the call-for-heat sequence again. This will occur 3 times (one time if CSD-1)
before the flame control will lockout.
b. When the call for heat condition ends or flame failure occurs following the third TFI period (one time if CSD1), a 30-second post-purge period will begin. This period of blower operation will exhaust any remaining
combustion products from the system.
8. Delay-On Relay - Once the Delay-On (Low Fire Hold) Relay has timed out, it energizes the Modulation Release
Relay (SPDT) to enable the analog signal from the TempTrac to the VFD to regulate the speed of the blower.
a. The TempTrac will continue to monitor the stored water temperature in the tank.
b. When the setpoint temperature is reached the call-for-heat signal to the flame safeguard control is
discontinued.
c.
The flame safeguard control deenergizes the VFD blower system and the gas valve, thereby suspending
burner operation.
d. As heat is transferred to the building, the water heater loop temperature will fall below the set point. The
TempTrac will sense this condition and begin the call-for-heat sequence again.
9. Flame Safeguard LED Diagnostic Indicator - If the Fenwal Flame Safeguard Control at any time during the
operating sequence senses an improper operating state and locks out, the diagnostic red LED located on the
control board will flash to indicate one of the following conditions exist:

through the safety valve when filling the appliance, insure gags or fixtures are removed from the safety valve
prior to start-up. Open the safety valve to allow air in the tank to escape.
3. Be sure all connections into the tank are tight, as leaks at tank fittings will damage the insulation.
4. CAUTION: Conduct the following gas train leakage test before start-up, at annual intervals and prior to
investigating the cause of any reported occurrences of delayed ignition.
a. Using an appropriate bubble detection solution, thoroughly coat all gas train pipe connections. If any
bubbles are detected, the leaking connection must be tightened, recoated, and rechecked to assure
stoppage of the leak.
27
PV500-44 12/13 Power VT® Plus WATER HEATER b. Attach a manometer to measure the gas pressure at the manual gas shutoff valve located just upstream of
the gas train. Adjust gas train inlet pressure to the specified value (e.g. 14" W.C.), and tightly close the gas
train manual shutoff valve closest to the burner.
c.
Reattach the manometer to the gas train manual shutoff valve at the burner and record the measured gas
pressure in inches of water column (W.C.). Measure gas pressure again after 15 minutes. If gas pressure
has increased 0.5" W.C. or more, the gas leak must be isolated to one or more of the operating gas valves.
(For example, a solenoid actuated gas shutoff valve.) After any leaking valve is replaced, the reassembled
gas train must be leak tested again before start-up is attempted.
5. Remove enclosure panel cover on the appliance to expose control circuit. A wiring diagram, included in this
packet, will show the controls used in our circuitry.
6. Visually check that all components are intact and no damage has occurred during transit.
7. Check all connections within the control cabinet. A loose connection could cause intermittent shutdowns.
8. All burners will use a hot surface igniter (HSI) as the ignition source. They may use a single gas pressure
regulator and valves, valve regulator combinations or multiple gas trains.
9. Connect a test meter to the control for reading the flame response signal.
NOTE: Some flame controls read the flame signal in micro amps and some in volts DC.
10. CAUTION: Be sure the tank is filled with water. Dry firing can destroy the appliance.
11. Check the inlet gas pressure before start-up, using a manometer or a 0 to 28" W.C. pressure gauge for inlet gas
pressure. (This is the pressure measured before all components in the gas train.) This manometer must stay
connected throughout the testing, as the inlet pressure must be monitored during the firing of the burner.
Record static pressure; it must not exceed 14" W.C. Pressures above this could cause damage to the
diaphragm in the gas valve or pressure regulator.
12. Connect a second manometer to the manifold test port at the shutoff valve closest to the burner.
13. Turn-off main gas shutoff valve.
14. Disable or jumper out any BMS/BAS control interface to allow independent setup and adjustment of
each water heater.
15. Turn unit on using the rocker switch on the front of the control enclosure assembly. When the burner fails to
light, the flame control will lockout.
Start the burner in Low Fire (Burner combustion must be optimized at both Low and High Fire). To set the
TempTrac control for manual modulation output:

Push and hold the EXT key for more than 3 seconds. The
LED switches ON and the PS4 parameter is
displayed in the upper display, while the PAS label is shown in the lower display.

Release the key, and insert the password: 3-2-1. The value of the modulation parameter PS4 will be
displayed in the lower display. (nu) stands for not used. Return to this condition for automatic operation.

To adjust modulation manually, push the SET key, the value starts flashing. Then use UP or DOWN keys
to modify it. 100 = High Fire; 0 = Low Fire.

To exit, press SET + UP or wait 30s without pressing any key.
NOTE: After a modification, it will be possible to enter the Modulation output setting without entering the
password for 10min. After this time you will be asked for the password again.
16. Turn-on main gas shutoff valve.
17. If the operating control switches are closed, the burner blower should come on and pre-purge begins.
18. If nothing happens, check for a lockout condition and reset it by pushing the flame safeguard reset button.
Some safety devices are wired in the operating circuit and may not indicate alarm. If no indication of alarm
exists, check gas pressure switches, electronic low water cutoffs (if equipped) and temperature limits.
28
PV500-44 12/13 Power VT® Plus WATER HEATER 19. When the blower motor starts, the flame control will check for a positive air flow. If the air switch or blocked filter
switch (if equipped) is not made the blower will stay on for a period of time then lockout. To adjust the airproving switch, turn the adjustment screw counter-clockwise until the air proving light comes on, then turn the
screw one turn counter-clockwise. The blocked filter switch (if equipped) should only be adjusted when the filter
is new. This switch should be turned clockwise until switch makes and then two additional turns. If the gas
valves open and close intermittently during normal operation, adjust pressure switches to increase the
operational threshold until this condition ceases. This procedure should be followed with every burner.
20. After the pre-purge, the flame control energizes the HSI for the heat up period, approximately 30 seconds. At
the end of that period the gas valve is opened for approximately 4 seconds. After the burner has lit and the
primary safety control senses a flame, the burner will remain on until the call for heat is satisfied or operation is
interrupted by a safety device.
21. If the burner fails to light, the flame control will lockout. When this happens press the reset button on the front of
the control to recycle burner and check for improper combustion or week flame signal as a possible cause.
22. Once the main burner flame is established the firing rate will be controlled by the TempTrac control. Refer to
TempTrac manual PV500-41.
Burner Combustion Adjustment
Burner combustion should only be adjusted using a combustion analyzer. Do not attempt to adjust burner by
sound or sight. With the burner firing, insert the combustion analyzer probe in the flue vent approximately two
feet from the appliance. See Gas Train Illustration below for details.
With the burner firing and adjusted to low fire, adjust the regulator screw clockwise to increase gas flow or
counter clockwise to decrease flow. The desired CO2 in the combustion products should be between 8.0 and
9.0% for natural gas, 9.5% to 10.5% for LP gas. Do not attempt to adjust combustion based on manifold
pressure alone. Manifold pressure should only be used as a reference point.
a. Once the desired combustion is achieved at low fire, raise the burner firing rate to high fire. Adjust the valve
orifice clockwise to reduce the flow of gas and counter-clockwise to increase the flow of gas in order to
maintain the desired CO2 in the combustion products between 8.0 and 9.0% for natural gas, 9.5% to 10.5%
for LP gas.
b. When high fire combustion has been reached and combustion is within the proper range, return to low fire
to confirm settings again.
c.
CAUTION: If at any point of the modulation range, carbon monoxide is in excess of 300ppm, contact
PVI Industries customer service for assistance.
23. Enable or reconnect any BMS/BAS control interface removed prior to the setup and adjustment of each water
heater.

PERIODIC MAINTENANCE
Listed below are items that must be checked to ensure safe reliable operations. Maintenance must be performed by
a qualified service or maintenance provider. To ensure proper maintenance, the following instructions should be
posted near the appliance and maintained in legible condition. Verify proper operation after servicing.
WARNING: When servicing the controls, use exact, Factory authorized, replacement parts and label all
wires prior to disconnection. Verify proper operation after servicing. Incorrect parts substitution and wiring
errors can cause damage, improper operation, fire, carbon monoxide and other unexpected and unsafe
conditions that could result in fire, injury or death.
1. Examine the appliance and venting system at least once a year. Check more often in first year to determine
inspection interval.
a. Check all joints and pipe connections for tightness, corrosion or deterioration.
b. Check the electronic-ignition system for quick ignition and a proper flame signal.
c.
Check all safety controls including thermostats for proper operation.
d. Check safety shut-off valves for operation and tightness.
e. Have the entire system, including, but not limited to, the burner, heat exchanger and venting system,
periodically inspected by a qualified service agency.
2. Exposure to Dusty or Dirty Combustion Air: An appliance installed in a dust or dirt contaminated atmosphere will
require more frequent inspection. If equipped with a combustion air filter, the burner inspection frequency can
be reduced, but the filter must be replaced on a 3 to 6 month schedule or more often, based on severity of
contamination. Contaminants and non-combustible particulate matter, such as dust, dirt, dryer lint, concrete
dust, dry wall dust or the like, can be drawn in with the combustion air and can block burner ports and cause
unsafe operation and a non-warrantable failure. If the optional filter is installed, it is recommended that the filter
not be removed until a suitable replacement is available. To inspect and clean the burner, a qualified
serviceman or installer should use the procedures described in item 5 & 6 below.
3. Any sign of soot on the heat exchanger or in the flue indicates the need for a combustion inspection. Properly
installed and adjusted units seldom need heat exchanger cleaning. If soot has formed, the most common
causes are restricted combustion air or excessive gas. A blocked heat exchanger can cause unsafe operation
and will reduce efficiency. To inspect and clean the heat exchanger, a qualified service agent or installer should
use the procedures described in item 5 & 6 below.
4. All gaskets on disassembled components must be replaced on reassembly with exact, Factory Authorized,
replacement parts only. Gasket kits are available from your PVI Industries® Representative or by contacting PVI
Industries®, LLC.
5. Burner and/or Heat Exchanger Inspection and Cleaning Procedure:
a.
b.
c.
d.
Turn off main power to unit.
Turn off gas supply.
Write notes and/or take pictures during this process to aid in correct reassembly.
Remove the hot surface igniter, (HSI) from the burner. Be very careful not to bump the igniter element due
to the fragility of the igniter.
e. Remove the nuts that secure the burner top plate to the burner flange and lift the burner top plate up until it
is completely extracted from the burner.
f. Inspect top plate refractory for damage. The refractory should provide a tight seal against the top edge of
the burner deck. The silicone foam gasket located on the top plate flange should also be checked for
damage or excessive compression set.
g. With the burner top plate removed, inspect the deck surface of the burner for lent or other blockage carried
in the fuel air stream. If blockage has accumulated, use brush to loosen debris and use a vacuum to
remove from the burner cavities. Do not brush or scrub the metal fiber burner surface as this can cause
permanent damage to the burner material.
h. Replace any damaged components and reassemble in reverse order. (4-5 ft/lbs).
i. Cycle unit and test to verify all safety and operating controls are properly functioning and the burner top
plate flange is free of leaks.
37
PV500-44 12/13 Power VT® Plus WATER HEATER 6. If equipped, the combustion air filter should be replaced every six months. If filter blockage becomes excessive
the filter safety switch will not allow the burner to fire. To avoid nuisance shutdown in dirty environments, check
and replace filter more frequently.
7. Inspect low water cutoffs and relief valves for proper operation at every six months, or more often if indicated by
inspection.
8. Keep appliance area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and
liquids.
9. Check frequently to be sure the flow of combustion and ventilation air is unobstructed to the appliance.
10. When electrical controls are serviced or replaced refer to ELECTRICAL COMPONENT LOCATIONS for
identification and location of components.
11. All replacement parts are available through your PVI Industries® Dealer. If you need assistance identifying or
contacting your local dealer, you may contact PVI Industries, LLC directly at the address and telephone number
located on the first and last page of this manual.
12. If the appliance is to be shut down for an extended period of time, the primary gas valve and the water supply
should be shut off. When the appliance is returned to service, a thorough inspection of all utilities and general
appliance condition should be conducted.
