|At the time of manufacture this water heater was pro-|
|vided with a combination temperature-pressures relief |
/valve certified by a nationally recognized testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection of production of
listed equipment or materials, as meeting the requirements for Relief Valves and Automatic Gas Shutoff
Devices for Hot Water Supply Systems, and the latest
edition of ANSI Z21.22 andthe code requirements of
ASME. If replaced, the valve must meet the requirements of local codes, but not less than a combination
temperature and pressure relief valve certified as meeting the requirements for Relief Valves and Automatic
Gas Shutoff Devicesfor Hot Water Supply Systems,ANSI
Z21.22 by a nationally recognized testing laboratory
that maintains periodic inspection of production of listed equipment or materials.
The valve must be marked with a maximum set pressure
not to exceed the marked hydrostatic working pressure
of the water heater (150 Ibs./sq. in.) and a discharge
capacity not less than the water heater input rate as
shown on the model rating plate. (Electric heaters watts divided by 1000 x 3415 equal BTU/Hr. rate.)
Your local jurisdictional authority, while mandating the
use of a temperature-pressure relief valve complying
with ANSI Z21.22 and ASME, may require a valve model
different from the one furnished with the water heater.
_liance with such local requirements must be satisthe installer or end user of the water heater with
)rescribed temperature-pressure relief valve
the designated opening in the water heater
in place of the factory furnished valve.
For safe operation of the water heater, the relief valve
must not be removed from it's designated opening or
plugged.
The temperature-pressure relief valve must be installed
directly into the fitting of the water heater designated
for the relief va ve. Position the va ve downward and
provide tubing so that any discharge will exit only within 6 inches above, or at any distance below the structural floor. Be certain that no contact is made with any
live electrical part. The discharge opening must not be
blocked or reduced in size under any circumstances.
Excessivelength, over 30 feet, or use of more than four
elbows can cause restriction and reduce the discharge
capacity of the valve.
No valve or other obstruction is to be placed between
the relief valve and the tank. Do not connect tubing
directly to discharge drain unless a 6 air gap is provJd-
_, WARNING
HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK! Before removing
any access panels or servicing the water heater,
make sure the electrical supply to the water heater
is turned "OFF". Failure to do this could result in
DEATH, SERIOUS BODILY INJURY, OR PROPERTY
DAMAGE.

HOTTER WATER CAN SCALD: Water heaters are I

and permanently injure you upon contact. Some l
people are more likely to be permanently injured by

handicapped. If anyone using hot water in your home fits
into one of these groups or if there is a local code or
state law requiring a certain temperature water at
the hot water tap, then you must take special precautions, In addition to using the lowest possible

_,WARNING
WATER HEATERS EQUIPPED FOR ONE VOLTAGE
ONLY: This water heater is equipped for one type
voltage only. Check the rating plate near the bottom access panel for the correct voltage. DO NOT
use this water heater with any voltage other than
the one shown on the model rating plate. Failure to
use the correct voltage can cause problems which
can result in DEATH. SERIOUS BODILY INJURY. OR
PROPERTY DAMAGE. If you have any questions or
doubts consult your electric company.
ACAUTION
WATER HEATERS EVENTUALLY LEAK: Installation of[
the water heater must be accomplished in such a )
manner that if the tank or any connections should I
leak, the flow of water will not cause damage to the [
structure. For this reason, it is not advisable to install I
the water heater in an attic or upper floor. When
such locations cannot be avoided, a suitable drain
pan should be installed under the water heater.
Drain pans are available at your local hardware
store. Such a drain pan must have a minimum diameter of at least 1'/, inches greater than the water
heater diameter and must be piped to an adequate
drain. Under no circumstances is the manufacturer to
be held liable for any water damage in connection
with this water heater.

PROGRAMMABLE
MODE
The Auto mode selection permits the water heater to be programmed for four periods a day, 24-hours a day and 7-days a
week. To begin pro_amming, depress the "MODE" button
until the AUTO selection appears in the display. To activate
the Program Mode depress the "PROGRAM" button at the
top of panel. The pro_amming mode should appear as the
next display.
The fourth period to prommm is Monday"Nite" - this period
is designated "_NRe"and is usually the beginning of decreased
hot water needs as the residents retire for the night. In the
example the temperature would be set for 70°17or lower with
the begin time set at 11:00 PM.
Prom-am Co W - The first day of programming has now been
completed. If each succeeding day of the workweek requires the
same desired settings as those just programmed for Monday,
these settings can be copied to the remaining four days of the
week by depressing and holding the "PROGRAM" button for
several seconds. In this manner the first day's settings are
repeated to aUfour remaining weekdays.
The first period to program is Monday"Morn" - this period is
designated as "Morn". By depressing the + or - of the "TIME"

THERMAL
EXPANSION
SmeUy water may be eliminated or reduced in some water heater
models by replacing the anode(s) with one of less active material,
and then chlorinating the water heater tank and all hot water
fines. Call Maytag Customer Service at 1-800-788-8899 for an
authorized servicerfor further information concerning an Anode
Replacement Kit #66001068 and this Chlorination Treatment.
Water supply systems may, because of such events as high line
pressure, frequent cut-offs, the effects of water hammer
among others, have installed devices such as pressure reducing
valves, check valves, back flow preventers, etc._to control
these types of problems. When these devices are not equipped
with an internal by-pass, and no other measures are taken, the
devices cause the water system to be closed. As water is heated, it expands (thermal expansion) and dosed systems do not
allow for the expansion of heated water,
If the smelly water persists after the anode replacement and chlorinafion treatment, we can only suggest that continuous chlorination and filtering conditioning equipment be considered to efimihate the water problem.
The water within the water heater tank expands as it is heated
and increases the pressure of the water system. If the relieving
point of the water heater's temperature-pressure refiefvalve is
reached, the valve will relieve the excess pressure. The temperature-pressure relief valve is not intended for the constant

/Hydrogen gas is extremely flammable and explo_sive. To prevent the possibility of injury under these
conditions, we recommend the hot water faucet be
_opened for several minutes at the kitchen sink
before any electrical appliances which are connected to the hot water system are used (such as a dishwasher or washing machine). If hydrogen gas is present, there will probably be an unusual sound similar to air escaping through the pipe as the hot
