Temperature limiting controls (TCOs)
The water heater is equipped with two temperature-limiting controls (TCOs) that are located above the upper
heating heating element in contact with the tank surface. If for any reason the water temperature becomes
excessively high, the temperature-limiting control (TCO)
breaks the power circuit to the heating element. Once
the control opens, it must be reset manually. Resetting
of the temperature limiting controls should be done by
a qualified service technician.
Caution: The cause of high
temperature conditions must be
investigated by a qualified service
technician and corrective action must
be taken before placing the water heater
in service again.
Defrosting
Under the heating mode, the unit will shut down the
heat pump automatically if an unusually low temperature
is detected at the evaporator. This cycle can last
between 2 and 10 minutes and ensures maximum heating efficiency.
The fan motor will stop running when the unit is defrosting.
Working conditions
In order to use the unit correctly, please run the unit at
ambient temperature 45°F - 115°F.
The unit includes sophisticated electronic devices, care
should be taken to feed the unit only with potable water.

System theory
An Electric Heat Pump Water Heater draws heat from
the ambient air and transfers that heat to the water in
the tank. Ambient air inside the room where the water
heater is installed is blown across an evaporator by a
fan. Cold refrigerant inside an expansion valve is heated
from this ambient air. This warmed refrigerant is then
sent through a compressor where it becomes extremely
hot. The hot refrigerant then passes through a
condenser coil that is wrapped around the outside of
the tank. The heat from the hot refrigerant is transferred
to the stored water inside the tank. After transferring it's
heat, the now warm refrigerant is pushed through an
expansion valve where it is cooled and depressurized so
the process can begin again. In addition, the ambient air
is cooled and dehumidified as it passes through the
evaporator and can be used to adjust the climate of the
room.
8
Built in controls offer a variety of operational modes to
suit every user’s needs. When operating with the heat
pump only (Economic Mode), the water is heated using
only the ambient air. Economic mode does not activate
the electric element inside. This mode may take longer
to heat the water to set temperature but uses less than
1/2 the electricity of a similar size electric tank.
The Auto mode use the electric element to supplement
the heat pump in the event that the water is not reaching
set temperature.
Electric mode allows for the water heater to function as
a standard electric tank without the use of the heat
pump.

Installation instructions
Warning: This water heater SHOULD
NOT be installed in a space where
liquids which give off flammable vapors
are to be used or stored. Such liquids
include gasoline, LP gas (butane and
propane), paint or adhesives and their
thinners,
solvents
or
removers.
Because of natural air movement in a
room or other enclosed space,
flammable vapors can be carried from
where their liquids are being used or
stored. Any arc within the water
heater's electronic controls can ignite
these vapors causing an explosion or
fire which may result in severe burns or
death to those in range, as well as
property damage.
The manufacturer’s warranty does not cover any
damage or defect caused by improper installation,
attachment or use of any type of energy-saving or other
unapproved devices (other than those authorized by the
manufacturer) into, onto or in conjunction with the water
heater.
The manufacturer disclaims any responsibility for such
loss or injury resulting from the use of such
unauthorized devices.

Location requirements
Warning: To avoid the potential for
ignition and fire, the water heater should
not be installed in a space where liquids
which give off flammable vapors are to
be used or stored.
Locate the water heater in a clean, dry area as near as
practical to the area of greatest hot water demand.
Long uninsulated hot water lines can waste energy and
water.
Note: Because this unit draws in air from the room to
heat the water, the room must be at least 10' x 10' x 7'
(700 cubic feet) or larger. If the room is smaller, there
must be louvers installed to allow for adequate airflow.
Place the water heater in such a manner that the air filter, cover and front panels can be removed to permit
inspection and servicing, such as removal of elements,
draining the tank, or cleaning of the filter.
The water heater and water lines should be protected
from freezing temperatures and highly corrosive atmospheres. Do not install the water heater in outdoor or
unheated, unprotected areas.
Caution: The water heater should not
be located in an area where leakage of
the tank or connection will result in
damage. In installations where risk of
water damage cannot be avoided, a
suitable catch pan, adequately drained,
must be installed under the water
heater.

NOTE: Auxiliary catch pan MUST conform to local
codes. Catch Pan Kits are available from the store
where the water heater was purchased, a building supply store or any water heater distributor.
Local installation regulations
This water heater must be installed in accordance with
these instructions, local codes, plumbing codes (UPC
or IPC), utility codes, utility company requirements or, in
the absence of local codes, the latest edition of the
National Electrical Code. It is available from some local
libraries or can be purchased from the National Fire Prevention Association, Batterymarch park, Quincy, MA
02169 as booklet ANSI/NFPA 70.

Dielectric union (recommended accessory)
Different metals between plumbing and tank materials
and additionally the effect of hot water can cause
corrosion of one of the metals (generally the one in the
tank is the metal attacked)
The Dielectric union will avoid any physical contact
between the two metals, acting as an effective insulator
and preventing this attack. How quick this corrosion
progresses, if at all, depends on the content of your
water, its pH, the dissolved minerals and the metals
involved.

Installation instructions
Failing to install this accessory will void the tank
warranty.
3.4.3
Condensate Drain Tubes
This unit has a condensation tray. The water collected
in the tray drains out of the drain ports coming off the
back of the unit. Two flexible hoses are included with
this unit. It is important that both of these hoses are
attached to the two drain ports coming off the back of
the unit. The upper drain serves as an overflow drain
that will operate only if the bottom drain is blocked.
Water leaking from the upper drain is an indicator that
the lower drain, and possibly the condensate pan itself,
require cleaning.
the outlet of the valve and must pitch downward from
the valve to allow complete drainage (by gravity) of the
relief valve and discharge line. The end of the discharge
line should not be threaded or concealed and should be
protected from freezing. No valve of any type, restriction, reducing coupling or tee should be installed in the
discharge line.
Warning: To reduce the risk of
excessive pressures and temperatures
in this water heater, install temperature
and pressure protective equipment
required by local codes and no less
than a combination temperature and
pressure 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 for Hot Water Supply
Systems, ANSI Z21.22.
B Attach one end of the longer 6’ hose to the lower
drain port on the back of the unit, underneath the rear
cover.
B Direct the other end to a drain in the floor or no higher
than 3’ above the floor.
If such drain is unavailable, a condensate drain pump
(not provided) must be purchased and installed.
B Attach the shorter 3” hose to the top drain port.
This valve must be marked with a maximum set pressure
not to exceed the marked maximum working pressure of
the water heater. It should be installed into an opening
provided and marked for this purpose in the water
heater, and vented so that any discharge from the valve
exits only within 6 inches above, or at any distance
below, the structural floor, and does not contact any live
electrical part. The discharge opening must not be
blocked or reduced in size under any circumstances.
3.4.5
Fig. 9
3.4.4
T&P Valve
A combination temperature and pressure-relief valve,
complying with the Standard for Relief Valves for Hot
Water Supply Systems, ANSI Z21.22, is supplied and
must remain installed in the opening provided and
marked for the purpose on the water heater. No valve of
any type should be installed between the relief valve and
the tank. Local codes shall govern the installation of
relief valves.
Connect the outlet of the relief valve to a suitable open
drain so that the discharge water cannot contact live
electrical parts or persons and to eliminate potential
water damage. Under no circumstances should the
relief valve vent be connected to the condensate drain
line.
Piping used should be of a type approved for hot water
distribution. The discharge line must be no smaller than
12
Thermal expansion tank
Determine if a check valve exists in the inlet water
supply line. It may have been installed in the cold water
line as a separate backflow preventer, or it may be part
of a pressure-reducing valve, water meter or water
softener. A check valve located in the cold water inlet
line can cause what is referred to as a "closed water
system". A cold water inlet line with no check valve or
backflow prevention device is referred to as an "open"
water system.
As water is heated, it expands in volume and creates an
increase in the pressure within the water system. This
action is referred to as "thermal expansion". In an
"open" water system, expanding water which exceeds
the capacity of the water heater flows back into the city
main where the pressure is easily dissipated.
A "closed water system", however, prevents the
expanding water from flowing back into the main supply
line, and the result of "thermal expansion" can create a
rapid and dangerous pressure increase in the water
heater and system piping. This rapid pressure increase
can quickly reach the safety setting of the relief valve,
causing it to operate during each heating cycle. Thermal
expansion, and the resulting rapid and repeated
expansion and contraction of components in the water
heater and piping system, can cause premature failure
6 720 646 804
Installation instructions
of the relief valve, and possibly the heater itself.
Replacing the relief valve will not correct the problem!
The suggested method of controlling thermal expansion
is to install an expansion tank in the cold water line
between the water heater and the check valve. The
expansion tank is designed with an air cushion built in
that compresses as the system pressure increases,
thereby relieving the over-pressure condition and
eliminating the repeated operation of the relief valve.
Other methods of controlling thermal expansion are
also available. Contact your installing contractor, water
supplier or plumbing inspector for additional information
regarding this subject.
3.5
Electric requirements
Caution: Do not mis-wire electrical
connections. 240V AC must be applied
to L1 and L2 wires as shown in Fig. 10.
Failure to do so will VOID the warranty.
Connecting the water heater to 120V
AC may damage the compressor or
other electrical components.
Power requirements
Check the markings on the rating plate of the water
heater to be certain the power supply corresponds to
the water heater requirements.
Electrical connections
A separate branch circuit with copper conductors, overcurrent protective device and suitable disconnecting
means must be provided by a qualified electrician.
Fig. 10 Water heater junction box
Warning: Proper ground connection
is essential. The presence of water in
the piping and water heater does not
provide sufficient conduction for a
ground. Use of non-metallic piping,
dielectric unions, flexible connectors,
etc., can cause the water heater to be
electrically isolated, which may cause
fire or shock.
This water heater must be connected to the building
electrical system on a dedicated branch circuit. A
25amp circuit breaker must be installed for overcurrent
protection.
This water heater must be connected to the building's
electrical supply with 10AWG copper wire or larger.
If higher wattage elements are installed, consult the
National Electrical Code (NFPA 70) to determine the
proper circuit breaker and minimum wire size.
All wiring must conform to local codes or latest edition
of National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA 70.
The water heater is completely wired to the junction box
at the top of the water heater. An opening for ½” or ¾”
electrical fitting is provided for field wiring connections.
The voltage requirements and wattage load for the
water heater are specified on the rating label on the
front of the water heater.
The branch circuit wiring should include either:
• Metallic conduit or metallic sheathed cable approved
for use as a grounding conductor and installed with
fittings approved for the purpose.
• Non metallic sheathed cable, metallic conduit or
metallic sheathed cable not approved for use as a
ground conductor shall include a separate conductor
for grounding. It should be attached to the ground
terminals of the water heater and the electrical distribution box.

Safety warnings
Warning: Hydrogen gas can be
produced in a hot water system served
by this water heater that has not been
used for a long period of time (generally
two weeks or more).
HYDROGEN GAS IS EXTREMELY
FLAMMABLE!
To dissipate such gas and to reduce
risk of injury, it is recommended that the
hot water faucet be opened for several
minutes at the kitchen sink before using
any electrical appliance 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 water begins to flow. Do not
smoke or use an open flame near the
faucet at the time it is open.
Caution: Turn off power to water
heater if it has been subjected to
overheating, fire, flood or physical
damage.
4.3
The temperature of the water in the water heater can be
regulated by adjusting the temperature setting up or
down using arrow keys on the control panel.
Safety and energy conservation are factors to be considered when selecting the water temperature setting of
the water heater. The lower the temperature setting, the
greater the savings in energy and operating costs.
To comply with safety regulations, the water temperature is factory set at 120°F where local codes require.
This is the recommended starting point.
Water temperatures above 125°F can cause severe
burns or death from scalding. Be sure to read and follow
the warnings outlined in this manual and on the label on
the water heater. This label is located on the water
heater near the upper element access panel.
Mixing valves for reducing point-of-use water temperature by mixing hot and cold water in branch water lines
are available. Contact a licensed plumber or the local
plumbing authority for further information.
The chart below may be used as a guide in determining
the proper water temperature for your home.
Danger: There is a hot water scald
potential if the water temperature is set
too high. Households with small
children, disabled, or elderly persons
may require a 120°F or lower
thermostat setting to prevent contact
with HOT water that may cause
scalding and serious injury.
Caution: Do not turn on water heater
unless it is filled with water or internal
damage may occur.
Caution: To avoid thermal expansion
and the potential that the water heater
may burst, do not turn on water heater if
cold water supply shut-off valve is
closed.
Danger: To avoid the potential for
ignition and fire, do not store or use
gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids, such as adhesives or paint
thinner, in the vicinity of this or any
other appliance. If such flammables
must be used, open doors and
windows for ventilation.

operates freely.
5.3
Flushing tank
It is suggested that a routine preventive maintenance
program be established and followed by the user
A water heater’s tank can act as a settling basin for solids suspended in the water. It is therefore not uncommon for hard water deposits to accumulate in the
bottom of the tank.
5.1
To clean the tank of these deposits:
Periodic Inspection
It is further recommended that a periodic inspection of
the operating controls, heating elements and wiring
should be made by service personnel qualified in electric appliance repair.
Most electrical appliances, even when new, make some
sound when in operation. If the hissing or singing sound
level increases excessively, the electric heating element
may require cleaning. Contact a qualified installer or
plumber inspection.
B Open the drain valve located near the bottom of the
unit and drain a few quarts of water from the water
heater once a year.
5.4
Draining the Water Heater

5.5
Vacation and Extended Shutdown
If the water heater is to remain idle for an extended
period of time, the power and water to the appliance
should be turned off to conserve energy and prevent the
buildup of dangerous hydrogen gas.
The water heater and piping should be drained if they
might be subjected to freezing temperatures. After a
long shutdown period, the water heater’s operation and
controls should be checked by qualified service personnel. Make certain the water heater is completely filled
again before placing it in operation.
i
5.6
Note: refer to the Hydrogen Gas Caution
in the Operating Instructions.
Cleaning the Filter
In the Auto and Economic modes, the heater moves air
through the system and out the back of the unit. The filter is in place to protect the evaporator from dirt and
dust.
A clean air filter is important to get the highest efficiency. Occasionally this filter will need to be cleaned
(minimum is once a year).
Once the filter has been cleaned, it can be replaced by
aligning it into the slot in the top of the unit and sliding
it down into place. When the handle is flush with the top
of the shroud, it is seated.
When the clean filter has been reinstalled:
B Press ENTER and DOWN keys simultaneously for 2
seconds.
IMPORTANT: A dirty filter will make the system work
harder and result in a reduction of efficiency and
possible damage to the system. In order to get the best
energy efficiency available, make sure your filter is
clean.
5.7
Clearing the Condensation Drain
Tubes
There are two drain hoses that are attached to the back
of the heater. If both of these get clogged, water will
spill down the outside of the unit.
The primary drain is intended to carry all condensate
away. If it is clogged or if the hose is kinked, the condensate will exit the secondary drain tube and onto the floor.
This is intended as a notification to the user that the primary drain is clogged.
B Remove the drain hose.
B Clear any debris and reattach.
i
If the filter gets too dirty, the unit will automatically switch to Standard Electric
mode and energy savings will be lost.
B Leave the power on.
B Remove the filter from the top of the unit.
It is located in the top of the unit behind the hot and cold
inlet pipes.
B Grasp the plastic handle
B Slide the filter straight up until it clears the shroud.
Once it has beed removed, the filter can be wiped
clean with a damp rag or rinsed with warm water.

Anode Rod servicing
A water heater anode rod is the most important safety
guard any storage tank has against corrosion and premature failure.
Inspecting the anode rod is therefore very important.
Sacrificial rods are designed to deteriorate overtime.
Most water heating industry professionals recommend
inspecting the anode about every 2 years.
Homes with salty or softened water supplies should
consider more frequent inspection. When in doubt consult a local water heating professional.

Water heater is noisy.
Fans are used to move air through
the system. The fan noise volume
will vary as the water is heated.
Some amount of fan noise is normal (similar to the blower on a central heating
and cooling system). If you hear an
abnormal noise like a knocking or the
noise level seems unusually loud, please
contact service.
If noise level has been increasing over
the last weeks or months, the filter may
be getting dirty thus making the fan work
harder. Check to see if filter needs to be
cleaned. (See page 24 for instructions).
Water heater is making the
room too cold.
Room is not vented properly or is
too small.
If the room is smaller than 10’ x 10’ x 7’,
then a louvered door or other means to

Many parts in the heater can be fully recycled in the end
of the product life. Contact your city authorities for
information about the disposal of recyclable products.
Saving water resources:
B Make sure you close all the taps after any use. Avoid
leaving the taps dripping. Repair any leaking tap.
B Define the temperature you want, in the appliance.
This way you have the precise water flow needed
(mixing cold water to regulate temperature will
increase the water flow with consequent waste of
water).
