1. Install the gasket on the bottom
of the spout, flat side down. If
installing a cover plate, align the
holes in the spout base with the
pins on the plate, and feed the
power cable and braided hose
through the plate. Secure the

underside of the cover plate
where shown.
3. Position the faucet on the
sink. For all installations, handtighten the spout to the deck
with the large black spacer
and long mounting nut. For
installations with a cover plate,
also attach the large cup
washers, flat washers, and
wing nuts to the threaded rods.
4. When the spout is in the
desired position, use a wrench
to tighten all mounting
hardware.

transformer through the opening in
the control box.
ii. Attach the wiring connectors (gray
to gray, black to black). Note
that the connectors are keyed for
proper installation as shown in the
detail below. Snap the completed
connections into the wiring harness
as shown.
iii. Plug the transformer into

iv. Wire up the
transformer to the
main line.
The faucet is leaking:
From outlet – tighten or replace outlet
insert using included key.
From supply stops – install or replace
filter screen gaskets (see diagram on
page 1).
No water flow or flow is limited:
Make sure supply hoses are connected
and supply stops are fully open. Clean
or replace filter screen gaskets or
outlet insert.
Completing Installation: Testing and Adjustment
Water flow does not stop:
If water flows continuously but stops
when hand enters detection zone,
reverse solenoid electrical connections.

WARNING!
Delivery of water to fixtures intended for hand washing is recommended to be controlled by valves listed to ASSE 1070. This fitting is NOT factory preset and can be adjusted to deliver water at temperatures exceeding 110°F (43°C).
Further, mechanical mixing valves DO NOT provide automatic control of water temperature. Due to effects of various water conditions, periodic verification of outlet water temperature is required.
Care and Maintenance
Periodic inspection and yearly maintenance by a licensed contractor is required for all thermostatic mixing elements. Corrosive water conditions and/or unauthorized adjustments or repair could
render the thermostatic valve ineffective for service intended. Regular checking and cleaning of the valve’s internal components and check stops helps assure maximum life and proper product
function. Frequency of cleaning and inspection depends on local water conditions. All Chicago Faucets fittings are designed and engineered to meet or exceed industry performance standards.
Care should be taken when cleaning this product. Do not use abrasive cleaners, chemicals, or solvents as they can result in surface damage. Use mild soap with warm water for cleaning and
protecting the surface of Chicago Faucets fittings.
