&WARNING
The water heater must be properly vented outdoors. Never operate the water heater unless it is
vented to the outdoors and has adequate air supply to avoid risks of improper operation, explosion
or asphyx ation.
_,WARNING
HYDROGEN GAS: Hydrogen gas can be produced in
a hot water system that has not been used for a
long period of time (generally two weeks or more).
Hydrogen gas is extremely flammable and explosive.
To prevent the possibility of injury under these conditions, we recommend the hot water faucet be
opened for several minutes at the kitchen sink
_WARNING
before
appliances
which(such
are connected
to the any
hot electrical
water system
are used
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 water
faucet is opened. There must be no smoking or open
flame near the faucet at the time it is open.
Minimum clearances between the water heater and
combustible and noncombustible construction are: 0
inches from sides, 0 inches from back, 4 inches from
front of jacket to closet door and 3 inches from top
of jacket to combustible and noncombustible ceiling,
Minimum vent clearance: 0 inches. NOTE: provide 24
inches front clearance for servicing. (See Figure 1)

manner that if the tank or any connections should:
leak, the flow of water will not cause damage to the
structure. For this reason, it is not advisable to install
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. Such
a drain pan must have a minimum length and width I
of at least 2 inches greater than the water heater
dimensions and must be piped to an adequate drain.
Drain pan depth must allow for access to the outer
doors for lighting the pilot and servicing the burner.
Under no circumstances is the manufacturer
or
Maytag to be held liable for any water damage in'
connection with this water heater.
Contact the Maytag dealer from whom the appliance was purchased or call Maytag Customer Service
at 1-800-788-8899
for an authorized servicer to
replace a flooded water heater. Do not attempt to
repair the unitJ It must be replaced!
A WARNING
INSULATING JACKETS: When installing an external
water heater insulation jacket on a gas water
heater:
a. DO NOT cover the temperature-pressure
relief
valve.
b. DO NOT put insulation over any part of the top of
the gas water heater.
c. DO NOT put insulation over the gas control valve
or gas control valve/burner cover, or any access
areas to the burner.
d. DO NOT let insulation around the gas water
heater to get within 8 inches of the floor to allow
access to the burner assembly.
e° DO NOT cover or remove operating instructions,
and safety related warning labels and materials
affixed to the water heater,
Failure to heed this will result in the possibility of a
fire or explosion.

(GARAGES, STORAGE, AND UTILITY AREAS, ETC):
Flammable liquids (such as gasoline, solvents, propane

If installation in such areas is your only option, then
the installation must be accomplished in a way that
the pilot flame and main burner flame are elevated
from the floor at least 18 inches. While this may reduce
the chances of flammable vapors from a floor spill
being ignited, gasoline and other flammable substances should never be stored or used in the same

HOTTER WATER CAN SCALD: Water heaters are
intended to produce hot water. Water heated to a
!temperature which will satisfy clothes washing, dish
washing, and other sanitizing needs can scald and
permanently injure you upon contact. Some people
are more likely to be permanently injured by hot
water than others. These include the elderly, children,
the infirm, or physically/mentally
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 temperature
setting that satisfies your hot water needs, a means
such as a mixing valve, should be used at the hot
water taps used by these people or at the water
heater. Mixing valves are available at plumbing supply or hardware stores. Follow manufacturers instructions for installation
of the valves. Before changing
the factory setting on the thermostat,
read the
"Temperature Regulation" section in this manual.

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 recog, t
nized testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection
of productionof listed equipment or materials.
The valve must be marked with a maximum set pressure
not to exceedthe marked hydrostaticworking pressureof !
&WARNING
The temperature-pressure relief valve must be manually operated at least once a year. Caution should be
taken to ensure that (1) no one is in front of or
around the outlet of the temperature-pressure relief
valve discharge line, and (2) the water manually discharged will not cause any bodily injury or property
damage because the water may be extremely hot.
If after manually operating the valve, it fails to completely reset and continues to release water, immediately close the cold water inlet to the water heater,
follow the draining instructions, and replace the
temperature-pressure relief valve with a new one.

ANSI Z21.22 and ASME, may require a valve model different from the one furnished with the water heater.

Compliancewith suchlocalrequirements must be satisfied
by the installer or end user of the water heater with a
locally prescribed temperature-pressure relief valve
installed in the designated opening in the water heater in
placeof 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 designatedfor
the relief valve. Positionthe valve downward and provide
tubing so that any discharge will exit only within 6 inches
above, or at any distance below the structural floor. Re
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
restrictionand reducethe dischargecapacity of the valve.

6. The gas company can check the gas input to see if it is correct.
HYDROGEN GAS: Hydrogen gas can be produced in
a hot water system that has not been used for a
long period of time (generally two weeks or more).
Hydrogen gas is extremely flammable and explosive. 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
water faucet is opened. There must be no smoking
or open flame near the faucet at the time it is open.
An underfired water heater will not heat water as quickly.

1. The temperature adjustment dial may be set too high, See the
"Temperature Adjustment" section.
NOTE: A period of time is necessary after an adjustment
has been made for the water temperature m reach the new

2. If lower temperature settings wil/not lower the water temperature, call Mayt'ag Customer Service (1-800-788-8899) for an
authorized servicer.
AWARNING
Due to the nature of the typical gas water heater,
the water temperature in certain situations may be
hotter than the thermostat setting.
Short, frequent draws of hot water - especially with
very coldincoming water - can shock the thermostat into brief operation resulting in hotter and hotter layers of water closer to the top of the tank.
Changes in hot water usage patterns or ralsinq the
temperature differential between the cut-on of the
thermostat and the cold water temperature

usually eliminate the problem.
