3. Servicing and Conversion
on the gear housing until grease flows out of the
bearings around the shaft. Put a liberal amount of
grease on the gear to cover the arc of contact with
the gear.
Important
Before attempting any servicing, ensure that the
gas isolating cock is turned off and cannot be
inadvertently turned on. Disconnect the
electricity supply.
Safety Valve
At least twice monthly the safety valve requires
checking to ensure that it works correctly. With the
gauge pressure at about five PSIG, lift the valve level
enough to vent steam, then quickly let it snap back
into place.
After any maintenance task, check the appliance
to ensure that it performs correctly. Carry out
necessary adjustments as detailed in Section 1.
After any servicing or exchange of gas carrying
components:
ALWAYS CHECK FOR GAS SOUNDNESS
NOTE: When replacing wiring connections refer to
the wiring diagram contained on the unit and in this
manual.
WARNING
AVOID ANY EXPOSURE TO THE STEAM
BLOWING OUT OF THE SAFETY VALVE.
After Servicing
a) Test for gas soundness as specified in IGE/UP1
as appropriate after any gas connection has
been disturbed.
This procedure should be explained to the user,
since it is to be carried out at least twice a month.
Relevant safety procedures and requirements should
also be explained to the user when carrying out the
procedure.
b) Check for correct operation, as appropriate (see
commissioning of appliance).
3.1
Regular Servicing Procedures
Conversion
See Paragraphs 1.8 and 1.9 for important
information about gas conversion. Verify the
type of gas to be used. All conversions must be
for approved gas in countries listed in Paragraph
1.9.
The following must be serviced at regular intervals.
Burners
The burner should be cleaned periodically to
maintain maximum performance. Burners are best
cleaned with a wire brush. Any blocked parts are
best cleaned with a metal broach, taking care not to
damage the burner head.
To change from natural gas to propane gas or vice
versa change
Burner Injector
Pressure Setting
Data Plate
Pilot Orifice
The injector orifice should be cleaned with a wooden
splinter. Metal reamers could distort or increase the
orifice size and should be avoided.
Gears
The governor spring does not require changing, only
the pressure setting.
The gear housing has fittings for lubrication of
moving parts. Because the gears do not run in oil,
periodic lubrication with grease is necessary.
Lubrication frequency depends on operating
conditions, but should be performed at least once
every six months. A #2 grade LGI lithium grease is
recommended. Add grease through the Zerk fittings
IMPORTANT
This appliance was fitted with gas injectors for
type G20 natural gas at the factory. Injectors for
type G25 natural gas are shipped as an

Jacket Vacuum
CAUTION
TDH STEAM JACKETED KETTLES ARE
DESIGNED TO USE TREATED, DISTILLED
WATER ONLY. USE OF ANY OTHER WATER
CAN CAUSE LIME ACCUMULATION ON
INTERNAL SURFACES, AND WILL VOID ALL
WARRANTIES.
When the kettle is cold, a positive reading or a
reading near zero on the pressure vacuum gauge
indicates excess air in the jacket. Air in the jacket
slows down kettle heating.
To remove air:
3.4
a) Light the unit (Paragraph 2.5.1).
b) When the pressure/vacuum gauge reaches a
positive pressure reading of five PSIG, release
entrapped air and steam by lifting the lever on
the safety valve for about one second. Repeat
this a few times. Let the valve snap back into the
closed position.
Water Treatment Procedure
WARNING
READ AND FOLLOW ALL PRECAUTIONS
STATED ON THE WATER TREATMENT
COMPOUND LABEL TO AVOID INJURY.
a) Fill the mixing container with the measured
amount of water required (See Table below).
Use distilled water only.
b) Hang a strip of pH test paper on the rim of the
container, with about 1"(25 mm) of the strip
below the water surface.
WARNING
AVOID ANY EXPOSURE TO THE STEAM
BLOWING OUT OF THE SAFETY VALVE.
c) Measure the water treatment compound (e.g.,
add the compound to the water from a small
measuring cup).
d) Stir the water continuously while you slowly add
water treatment compound, until the water
reaches a pH between 10.5 and 11.5. Judge the
pH by frequently comparing the color of the test
strip with the color chart provided in the pH test
kit.
3.3 Jacket Filling
The jacket has been charged at the factory with the
proper amount of treated, distilled water. You may
need to restore jacket water to its proper level, either
because water was lost as steam during venting or
by draining.
e) Record the exact amounts of water and
treatment compound used. These amounts may
be used again if the same sources of water and
compound are used in the future. However, it is
advisable to check the pH every time water is
prepared. For optimum performance, use
correctly treated distilled water.
To add water:
a) If you are replacing water lost as steam use
distilled water. If you are replacing treated water
that ran out of the jacket, prepare more treated
water (Paragraph 3.4).
b) Let the kettle cool completely. Turn the safety
valve elbow anti-clockwise (to avoid thread
damage) until it faces upward.
Model
c) Open the globe valve and pour distilled or
treated water into the elbow inlet.
d) Hold the safety valve open while you pour to let
air escape from the jacket. Air introduced during

5.2.4 User’s Thermostat
Provides automatic control of the Kettle Jacket
temperature at selected settings to a maximum of
147oC.
5.2.5 Sequence of Operation
The following "sequence of operation" outline is
provided to help the user understand how the unit
functions.
When the operator sets a temperature on the
thermostat dial, the thermostat switch closes and
sends a signal which (1) starts the spark and (2)
opens the automatic valve for the burners.
The spark ignites the burner on low flow. The flame
completes a circuit at the sensing probe and sends
a signal that causes the spark to shut off and the
automatic valve to open to full flow once a flame
has been detected. If a flame is not detected within
15 seconds the gas is automatically cut-off and the
appliance is locked-out. The unit can only be re-lit
once the reset button has been pressed.
WARNING
DO NOT STAND IN FRONT OF THE KETTLE
BODY WHEN TILTING IT. BE CAREFUL TO
KEEP HOT CONTENTS FROM SPILLING.
ENSURE PEOPLE ARE KEPT AWAY FROM THE
KETTLE WHEN EMPTYING IT.
In addition to the lockout timer, safety features
include:
5.2.7 Power Failure
