I. Pre-Installation
WARNING
If you do not follow these instructions exactly,
a fire or explosion may result causing property
damage or personal injury.
DANGER
Do not install boiler where gasoline or other
flammable vapors or liquids, or sources of
hydrocarbons (i.e. bleaches, cleaners, chemicals,
sprays, paint removers, fabric softeners, etc.) are
used or stored.
NOTICE
Due to the low water content of the boiler, missizing of the boiler with regard to the heating
system load will result in excessive boiler cycling
and accelerated component failure. U.S. Boiler
DOES NOT warrant failures caused by mis-sized
boiler applications. DO NOT oversize the boiler to
the system. Modular boiler installations greatly
reduce the likelihood of boiler oversizing.
A. Installation must conform to the requirements of the
authority having jurisdiction. In the absence of such
requirements, installation must conform to the National
Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, and/or Natural
Gas and Propane Installation Code, CAN/CSA B149.1.
Where required by authority having jurisdiction,
installation must conform to Standard for Controls and
Safety Devices for Automatically Fired Boilers, ANSI/
ASME CSD-1.
B. Appliance is design certified for installation on
combustible flooring. Do not install boiler on
carpeting.
C. Provide clearance between boiler jacket and
combustible material in accordance with local fire
ordinance. Refer to Figure 1 for minimum listed
clearance from combustible material. Recommended
service clearance is 24 (610 mm) inches from left side,
right side and front. Service clearances may be reduced
to minimum clearances to combustible materials.
D. Install on level floor. For basement installation provide
solid base such as concrete, if floor is not level or if
water may be encountered on floor around boiler. Floor
must be able to support weight of boiler, water and all
additional system components.
E. Protect gas ignition system components from water
(dripping, spraying, rain, etc.) during boiler operation
and service (circulator replacement, condensate trap,
control replacement, etc.).
F. Provide combustion and ventilation air in accordance
with the section “Air for Combustion and Ventilation,”
of the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54,
or Sections 8.2, 8.3 or 8.4 of Natural Gas and Propane
Installation Code, CAN/CSA-B149.1, or applicable
provisions of local building codes.
WARNING
Adequate combustion and ventilation air must
be provided to assure proper combustion.
The following guideline is based on the National Fuel Gas
Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54.
1. Determine volume of space (boiler room). Rooms
communicating directly with space (through
openings not furnished with doors) are considered
part of space.
Volume [ft³] = Length [ft] x Width [ft] x Height [ft]
2. Determine Total Input of all appliances in space.
Round result to nearest 1,000 Btu per hour (Btuh).
3. Determine type of space. Divide Volume by Total
Input.
a. If result is greater than or equal to 50 ft³ per
1,000 Btuh, space is considered an unconfined
space.
b. If result is less than 50 ft³ per 1,000 Btuh, space
is considered a confined space.
4. Determine building type. A building of unusually
tight construction has the following characteristics:
a. Walls and ceiling exposed to outside atmosphere
have a continuous water vapor retarder with a
rating of 1 perm or less with openings gasketed
and sealed, and;
b. Weather-stripping has been added on openable
windows and doors, and;
c. Caulking or sealants applied in joints around
window and door frames, between sill plates and
floors, between wall-ceiling joints, between wall
panels, at plumbing and electrical penetrations,
and at other openings.
5. For boiler located in an unconfined space in a
building of other than unusually tight construction,
adequate combustion and ventilation air is normally
provided by fresh air infiltration through cracks
around windows and doors.
7
I. Pre-Installation (continued)
6. For boiler located within unconfined space in
building of unusually tight construction or within
confined space, provide outdoor air through two
permanent openings which communicate directly or
by duct with the outdoors or spaces (crawl or attic)
freely communicating with the outdoors. Locate one
opening within twelve (12) inches of top of space.
Locate remaining opening within twelve (12) inches
of bottom of space. Minimum dimension of air
opening is three (3) inches. Size each opening per
following:
confined space. Use indoor air if two permanent
openings communicate directly with additional
space(s) of sufficient volume such that combined
volume of all spaces meet criteria for unconfined
space. Size each opening for minimum free area
of one (1) square inch per 1,000 Btu per hour
input of all equipment in spaces, but not less than
100 square inches.
7. Combustion Air/Ventilation Duct Louvers and
Grilles. Equip outside openings with louvers to
prevent entrance of rain and snow, and screens to
prevent entrance of insects and rodents. Louvers and
grilles must be fixed in open position or interlocked
with equipment to open automatically before burner
operation. Screens must not be smaller than ¼ inch
mesh.
a. Direct communication with outdoors. Minimum
free area of one (1) square inch per 4,000 Btu per
hour input of all equipment in space.
b. Vertical ducts. Minimum free area of one (1)
square inch per 4,000 Btu per hour input of all
equipment in space. Duct cross-sectional area
shall be same as opening free area.
c. Horizontal ducts. Minimum free area of one (1)
square inch per 2,000 Btu per hour input of all
equipment in space. Duct cross-sectional area
shall be same as opening free area.
Alternate method for boiler located within
Consider the blocking effect of louvers, grilles and
screens when calculating the opening size to provide
the required free area. If free area of louver or grille
is not known, assume wood louvers have 20-25
percent free area and metal louvers and grilles have
60-75 percent free area.
CAUTION
Avoid operating this boiler in an environment where saw dust, loose insulation fibers, dry wall dust, etc.
are present. If boiler is operated under these conditions, the burner interior and ports must be cleaned and
inspected daily to insure proper operation.
II. Unpack Boiler
CAUTION
WARNING
Do not drop boiler. Do not bump boiler jacket
against floor.
Installation of this boiler should be undertaken
only by trained and skilled personnel from a
qualified service agency.
A. Move boiler to approximate installed position.
B. Remove all crate fasteners.
C. Lift and remove outside container. Save two of the
wooden slats from the container sleeve for use in Steps
E and F.
D. Remove all boiler hold-down fasteners.
E. Tilt the boiler to its front side or back side and slide a
wooden slat under the three raised feet.

9. Enclose vent passing through occupied or
unoccupied spaces above the boiler with material
having a fire resistance rating of at least equal to the
rating of the adjoining floor or ceiling. Maintain
minimum clearances to combustible materials. See
Figure 1.
Note: For one or two family dwellings, fire
resistance rating requirement may not need to be
met, but is recommended.
10. Plan venting system to avoid possible contact with
plumbing or electrical wires. Start at vent connector
on top of boiler and work towards vent terminal.
11. If a non-standard length pipe is required:
Gasketed Vent System: The use of the adjustable
length pipe (P/N 8116319U) is recommended to
complete a non-standard pipe length. This pipe
requires a minimum installed length of 12¾ inch
and can adjust across a 7 inch gap up to a maximum
of 19¾ inch long. (Note for the adjustable pipe
the installed length should be measured from the
centerline of the bead on the male end of the first
pipe to the end of the female pipe excluding the
locking band of the second pipe with a single
gasket.) Only in the event the adjustable length pipe
is not sufficient a standard length pipe may be cut
using the procedure outlined below for the GasketLess Vent System.
12.Vent connectors serving appliances vented by
natural draft shall not be connected into any portion
of mechanical draft systems operating under positive

IV. Water Piping and Trim
WARNING
Failure to properly pipe boiler may result in improper operation and damage to boiler or structure.
Oxygen contamination of boiler water will cause corrosion of iron and steel boiler components, and
can lead to boiler failure. U.S. Boiler’s Standard Warranty does not cover problems caused by oxygen
contamination of boiler water or scale (lime) build-up caused by frequent addition of water.
A. Design and install boiler and system piping to
prevent oxygen contamination of boiler water and
frequent water additions.
1. There are many possible causes of oxygen
contamination such as:
a. Addition of excessive make-up water as a result
of system leaks.
b. Absorption through open tanks and fittings.
c. Oxygen permeable materials in the distribution
system.
2. In order to insure long product life, oxygen sources
must be eliminated. This can be accomplished by
taking the following measures:
a. Repairing system leaks to eliminate the need for
addition of make-up water.
b. Eliminating open tanks from the system.
c. Eliminating and/or repairing fittings which allow
oxygen absorption.
d. Use of non-permeable materials in the
distribution system.
e. Isolating the boiler from the system water by
installing a heat exchanger.
f. Use properly designed and operating air
elimination devices in water piping.
B. Optional Probe LWCO Installation
WARNING
DO NOT ATTEMPT to cut factory wires to
install an aftermarket Low Water Cut Off
(LWCO). Only use connections specifically
identified for Low Water Cut Off.
In all cases, follow the Low Water Cut Off
(LWCO) manufacturer’s instructions.
1. A low water cutoff is required to protect
a gas-fired hot water boiler when any
connected heat distributor (radiation) is
installed below the top of the hot water
boiler (i.e. baseboard on the same floor
level as the boiler). In addition, some
jurisdictions require the use of a LWCO
with a hot water boiler as a redundant safety
control.
It is recommended that the LWCO control
is installed above the boiler to provide
the highest level of protection. However,
where the LWCO control is approved by the
LWCO control manufacturer for installation
in a high boiler tapping of a water boiler, the
use of the listed LWCO control is permitted
when it is installed according to the LWCO
manufacturer’s instructions.
2. The recommended location for a LWCO on
gas hot water boilers is above the boiler, in
the supply piping. The minimum safe water
level of a water boiler is at the uppermost
top of the boiler; that is, it must be full of
water to operate safely.
3. Typically, in residential applications, a probe
type LWCO is used instead of a float type,
due to their relative costs and the simplicity
of piping for a probe LWCO.
4. Piping and fittings required to install LWCO
are field supplied.
Figure 10: Recommended Probe LWCO Location
19
IV. Water Piping and Trim (continued)
2. The recommended location for an Auxiliary Limit
on gas hot water boilers is in the supply piping. See
Figure 11 for recommended location.
5. When constructing a piping tree to install LWCO
select fittings (tees, elbows etc) and nipples to have
the same size (NPT) as boiler supply connection.
At minimum, 1-1/4” tee with ¾” branch outlet is
required to connect the probe LWCO to the supply
piping. See Figure 10. DO NOT REDUCE THE
SIZE OF NEAR BOILER SUPPLY FITTINGS
AND NIPPLES.
3. Piping and fittings required to install an Auxiliary
Limit are field supplied.
4. When constructing a piping tree to install an
Auxiliary Limit select fittings (tees, elbows etc)
and nipples to have the same size (NPT) as boiler
supply connection. At minimum, 1-1/4” tee with
1/2” branch outlet is required to install the limit
well into the supply piping. See Figure 11. DO
NOT REDUCE THE SIZE OF NEAR BOILER
SUPPLY FITTINGS AND NIPPLES.
6. Installation of manual shutoff valve located above
the LWCO and the boiler is recommended to allow
servicing. Thus LWCO probe can be removed for
inspection without draining the heating system. An
annual inspection of the probe is recommended.
7. The presence of water covering properly installed
LWCO probe will cause the normally open contact
of the LWCO to close, thus providing continuity of
the 24 VAC service to the boiler gas valve. When
water level drops below probe, LWCO contact
opens up breaking 24V supply to gas valve and
preventing the boiler to fire.
5. When boiler water temperature reaches or exceeds
Auxiliary Limit setting, the limit normally closed
contact will open, thus interrupting the 24 VAC
service to the boiler gas valve. When boiler water
temperature drops below limit differential, limit
contact closes restoring 24V supply to gas valve and
allowing the boiler to fire.
8. 2012 compliant PVG gas hot water boilers have
a “plug-in” provision in factory wiring that will
accept optional 24VAC probe LWCO harness
connector. The optional LWCO kit (P/N 10408301) includes 24VAC probe LWCO, Harness and
Instructions addressing piping, wiring and testing
after installation.
C. Optional Auxiliary Limit Installation
1. Some jurisdictions may require the use of an
Auxiliary Limit control with a hot water boiler as a
redundant safety control.
20
6. Gas hot water boilers equipped with Intelligent
Hydronic Control have a “plug-in” provision in
factory wiring that will accept optional 24VAC
Auxiliary Limit harness connector. The optional
Auxiliary Limit kit (P/N 103696-01) includes
24VAC Auxiliary Limit, Well, Harness and
Instructions addressing wiring and testing after
installation.
D. Connect system supply and return piping to boiler.
See Figures 14 and 15. Maintain minimum ½ inch
(13 mm) clearance from hot water piping to
combustible materials.
Figure 11: Recommended Auxiliary Limit Location
IV. Water Piping and Trim (continued)
NOTICE
U.S. Boiler recommends sizing the system
circulator to supply sufficient flow (GPM) to allow a
20°F temperature differential in the system. When
sizing the system circulator, the pressure drop of
all radiators, baseboard and radiant tubing and all
connecting piping must be considered.
E. Install circulator with flanges, gaskets and bolts
provided. Circulator harness allows circulator to be
mounted on supply or return. Connect harness to
circulator and secure any excess conduit.
F. Install supply manifold, pressure/temperature gauge
and pressure relief valve.
See Figure 12. Pressure Relief Valve must be installed
with spindle in vertical position. Installation of the
relief valve must comply with the ASME Boiler and
Pressure Vessel Code, Section IV.
Figure 13: Recommended Piping for Combination
Heating & Cooling
(Refrigeration) System
H. If boiler is used in connection with refrigeration
systems, boiler must be installed with chilled medium
piped in parallel with the heating boiler using
appropriate valves to prevent chilled medium from
entering boiler. See Figure 13.
I. If boiler is connected to heating coils located in
air handling units where they may be exposed to
refrigerated air circulation, boiler piping must be
equipped with flow control valves or other automatic
means to prevent gravity circulation of boiler water
during the cooling cycle.
J. Use a boiler bypass if the boiler is to be operated
in a system which has a large volume or excessive
radiation where low boiler water temperatures may be
encountered (i.e. converted gravity circulation system,
etc.).
Figure 12: Supply Water Manifold Piping
WARNING
Pressure relief valve discharge piping must be
piped such that the potential of severe burns
is eliminated. DO NOT pipe in any area where
freezing could occur. DO NOT install any shut-off
valves, plugs or caps. Consult Local Codes for
proper discharge piping arrangement.
G. Space heating and domestic water heating with
Alliance SL™ water heater. Install Alliance SL™ water
heater as a separate heating zone. Refer to Alliance
SL™ Installation, Operating and Service Instructions
for additional information.
Install pipe tee between circulator and boiler return
along with second tee in supply piping as shown in
Figure 14 or 15. Bypass should be same size as the
supply and return lines with valves located in bypass
and supply outlet as illustrated in Figure 14 or 15 in
order to regulate water flow to maintain higher boiler
water temperatures.
After the boiler is operational (reference Section VIII.
System Start-Up) set by-pass and boiler supply valves
to half throttle position to start. Operate boiler until
system water temperature reaches normal operating
range.
Adjust valves to provide 180° to 200°F supply water
temperature. Opening the boiler supply valve will raise
system temperature, while opening the by-pass valve
will lower system supply temperature.
K. After the boiler and system have been cleaned and
flushed, and before refilling the entire system add
appropriate water treatment chemicals, if necessary, to
21
IV. Water Piping and Trim (continued)
bring the pH between 7 and 11.
To perform a long term pressure test including the
boiler, ALL trapped air must first be removed from the
boiler.
A loss of pressure during such a test, with no visible
water leakage, is an indication that the boiler contained
trapped air.
L. If it is required to perform a long term pressure
test of the hydronic system, the boiler should first be
isolated to avoid a pressure loss due to the escape of air
trapped in the boiler.

VII. Modular Installation
A. General Guidelines
1. Read and follow all venting, combustion air,
water piping, gas piping and electrical instructions
contained in this manual unless otherwise instructed
in this section.
E. Gas Piping
1. Refer to National Fuel Gas Code, Local Codes and
Tables 7 and 8 for gas pipe sizing.
Table 9: Modular Boiler Water Manifold Sizing
2. Consult Local Building Codes or National Fuel Gas
Code, NFPA 54/ANSI Z222.3 for restrictions and
instructions on modular boiler installations.
B. Module Sizing
U.S. Boiler recommends sizing each boiler in a modular
system to provide 20 % of the combined heating load
where ever possible.
C. Venting
1. Each boiler must have an individual vent pipe.
Refer to Venting Section of this manual for venting
guidelines and options.

2. Each boiler must be piped as shown in Figure 16.
WARNING
WARNING
Do not manifold vent pipes together.
If gas pressure in the building is above ½ psig,
an additional gas pressure regulator is required.
Using one additional regulator for multiple
boilers may result in unsafe boiler operation.
The additional regulator must be able to properly
regulate gas pressure at the input of the smallest
boiler. If the regulator cannot do this, two or
more additional regulators are required. Consult
regulator manufacturer and/or local gas supplier
for instructions and equipment ratings.
2. The maximum vent length for each boiler is fifty
(50) equivalent feet.
3. The minimum horizontal distance between vent
terminations is one (1) foot. Additional horizontal
distance is desirable to avoid frost damage to the
building. Vent terminations must be at least twelve
(12) inches above the ground plus the expected
snow accumulation.
CAUTION
Installing multiple vent terminations close
together promotes frost buildup on buildings.
To minimize this possibility, extend the distance
from the building to the end of the vent
termination and increase the horizontal distance
between terminations.
4. Multiple vertical vent pipes may be piped through
a common conduit or chase so that one roof
penetration may be made. Each vent termination
must be one (1) foot from other terminations.
D. Water Piping (See Table 9 and Figure 21)
F. Electrical
1. Each boiler must be provided with a fused
disconnect and service switch.
2. Install wiring in accordance with requirements of
authority having jurisdiction. In the absence of such
requirements, follow the National Electric Code,
NFPA 70 and/or CSA C22.1 Electric Code.
G. Modular Boiler Control Systems
Contact a controls manufacturer such as Honeywell or
Tekmar to properly apply a modular control system.
Common systems may use outdoor temperature, return
water temperature or both to stage the boilers.
Installing a low water cutoff in the system piping of
modular systems is strongly recommended and may be
required by Local Codes.

8. Close the opened zone valve or shut-off valve for
the zone being purged of air, then open the zone
valve or shut-off valve for the next zone to be
purged. Repeat this step until all zones have been
purged. At completion, open all zone valves or
shut-off valves.
C. Confirm that all manual shut-off gas valves between
the boiler and gas source are closed.
WARNING
Completely read, understand and follow all
instructions in this manual before attempting
start up.
9. Close hose bib, continue filling the system until the
pressure gauge reads 12 psi. Close fill valve.
(Note - If make-up water line is equipped with
pressure reducing valve, system will automatically
fill to 12 psi. Follow fill valve manufacturer’s
instructions).
D. Fill entire heating system with water and vent air
from system. Use the following procedure on a Series
Loop or multi-zoned system installed as per Figure 14
or 15 to remove air from system when filling.
10.Open isolation valve in boiler supply piping.
WARNING
The maximum operating pressure of this boiler
is 30 psig. Never exceed this pressure. Do not
plug or change pressure relief valve.
11.Remove hose from hose bib.
E. Confirm that the boiler and system have no water
leaks.
F. Prepare to check operation.
1. Obtain gas heating value (in Btu per cubic foot)
from gas supplier.
NOTICE
2. Connect manometer to pressure tap on gas valve.
Use 1/8 NPT tapping provided.
If it is required to perform a long term pressure
test of the hydronic system, the boiler should
first be isolated to avoid a pressure loss due to
the escape of air trapped in the boiler.
To perform a long term pressure test including
the boiler, ALL trapped air must first be removed
from the boiler.
A loss of pressure during such a test, with no
visible water leakage, is an indication that the
boiler contained trapped air.
3. Temporarily turn off all other gas-fired appliances.
4. Turn on gas supply to the boiler gas piping.
5. Confirm that the supply pressure to the gas valve is
14 in. w.c. or less. Refer to Table 5 for minimum
supply pressure.
6. Open the field installed manual gas shut-off valve
located upstream of the gas valve on the boiler.
7. Using soap solution, or similar non-combustible
solution, electronic leak detector or other approved
method. Check that boiler gas piping valves, and
all other components are leak free. Eliminate any
leaks.
1. Close full port ball valve in boiler supply piping.
2. Isolate all zones by closing zone valves or shut-off
valves in supply and return of each zone(s).
3. Attach a hose to the vertical hose bib located prior to
the full port ball valve in the system supply piping.
(Note - Terminate hose in five gallon bucket at a
suitable floor drain or outdoor area).
DANGER
Do not use matches, candles, open flames or
other ignition source to check for leaks.
4. Starting with one circuit at a time, open zone valve
or shut-off valve in system supply and return piping.
5. Open hose bib.

VIII. System Start-up (continued)
WARNING
Failure to properly adjust gas input rate will result
in over firing or under firing of the appliance.
Improper and unsafe boiler operation may result.
4. Determine Input Rate. Multiply gas flow rate by gas
heating value.
5. Compare measured input rate to input rate stated on
rating plate.
a. Boiler must not be over fired. Reduce input rate
by decreasing manifold pressure. Do not reduce
more than 0.3 inch w.c. If boiler is still overfired,
contact your U.S. Boiler distributor or Regional
Office for replacement Gas Orifice.
b. Increase input rate if less than 98% of rating
plate input. Increase manifold gas pressure no
more than 0.3 inch w.c. If measured input rate is
still less than 98% of rated input:
i. Remove Main Burners per procedure in
Section XI: Service.
ii. Remove gas orifices. Drill one (1) drill size
larger (drill size is stamped on orifice, or see
Section XII: Repair Parts).
iii. Reinstall gas orifices and main burners.
Measure input rate.
6. Recheck Main Burner Flame.
7. Return other gas-fired appliances to previous
conditions of use.
8. Measure and record air free carbon monoxide
(COAF) must be less than 50 ppm.

A. Boiler Sequence of Operation
NORMAL OPERATION
1. The PVG Boilers are equipped with an Intelligent
Hydronic Control (control). This control replaces the
traditional separate ignition control, high limit switch,
blower relay and circulator relay and adds energy
saving thermal purge features. Energy is saved by
starting the circulator and delaying the burner start
when there is residual heat available in the boiler.

6. When a indirect water heater aquastat call for heat is
wired to the DHW input the control starts the Domestic
Hot Water circulator and, if the boiler temperature
is less than the operating setpoint less differential,
the blower is energized without delay. Once the
pressure switch is proven, the ignition sequence is
started allowing gas flow and ignition of the burners.
Running
8
The burner runs until the call for
heat is satisfied or the operating
setpoint is reached.
3.When the thermostat calls for heat the control
starts the system circulator and the thermal purge
(circulator Pre-purge time) begins. If the time is
completed or boiler temperature is less than the
Start Temperature (140°F default) the start sequence
continues by energizing the blower. Once the
pressure switch is proven, the ignition sequence is
started allowing gas flow and ignition of the burners.
4. If the thermostat is not satisfied and the operating
setpoint is reached the system circulator will continue
to operate and the burner will stop. When the
boiler water temperature drops below the setpoint
less the differential setting the burner will restart.
B. Boiler Fault
In the event the boiler fails to start, the control provides status
information to help determine the cause of the problem. Table
12 provides a list of boiler status codes that are reported.

If no keys are pressed, after five (5) minutes the
control will automatically return to the Operating
Mode.
F. More Information about Adjustable
Parameters
1. High Limit (HL_)
The control is factory programmed with a High
Limit Setpoint of 180°F. The burner turns
“off” when the boiler water temperature (bt)
is above this value. The High Limit setpoint is
adjustable between 140° and 220°F. The Operating
Setpoint (SP) will equal the High Limit Setpoint.
2. Differential (df_)
The control is factory programmed with a Differential
of 15°F. The Differential is the number of degrees
the boiler temperature must decrease below the
Operating Setpoint before the boiler can restart. The
differential is adjustable between 10° through 30°F.
3. Circulator Overrun Time (OR_)
The control is factory programmed with a Circulator
Overrun Time of 0 minutes. Circulator Overrun Time
(also called “circulator off delay” or “circulator post
purge”) continues circulator operation after a call for
heat has ended, sending excess heat from the boiler
into the system. Ensure system piping and zone

Amount of “Heat available” is calculated by taking
the difference between measured boiler water
temperature and the Start Temperature setting. Useful
“Heat Available” is dependent on the type of heating
emitter installed in the home. Heat emitters require a
certain minimum temperature to operate effectively.
Our default settings reflect cast iron radiators. Fan
Coils may require a start temperature setting of
180°F or 160°F before providing heat to the home.
The Start Temperature has a factory setting of 140°F
and is field adjustable between 140°F and 180°F.
6. Priority Time ()
When the Priority Time parameter is set to “on” and
Domestic Hot Water (DHW) call for heat is “on” the
DHW demand will take “Priority” over home heating
demand. During Priority Time the system circulator
will be forced “off”. Priority Time ends and the system
circulator is released to service home heating demand
when Domestic Hot Water call for heat is over. When
Priority Time parameter is set to “Off” the DHW call
for heat does not force “off” the system circulator. The
Priority Time has a factory setting of “On” and is field
adjustable between “On” and “Off” Refer to Table 14.
41
IX. operation (continued)
7. Domestic Hot Water (DHW) Terminal Function ()
The control allows configuration of the DHW
Circulator output functionality to help the PVG
integrate into each installation more effectively.
The DHW Circulator output can be connected to a
domestic hot water circulator or a second heating
zone circulator. These applications are selected as
follows:
a. When  is set equal to Domestic Hot Water
Demand (h)
When there is an Indirect Water Heater (IWH)
the control provides “DHW” input terminals for
the IWH Aquastat and “DHW Circulator” output
terminals for the DHW Circulator.
When there is a DHW call for heat, the System
Circulator is “forced off”, the DHW Circulator
terminal is energized and the circulator pre-purge
time delay control logic is bypassed to allow
the boiler to fire without delay. When DHW
demand ends the System Circulator “force off”
is removed, the circulator can respond normally,
and the DHW Circulator is de-energized. The
DHW call for heat is detected by a voltage on to
the “DHW” terminal. When the Priority Time
parameter is set to “off” the System Circulator
is not forced off for a DHW call for heat. Refer
to Table 14.
b. When  is set equal to Second Heating Zone
()
When there is no IWH the “DHW Circulator”
output may be configured to control a second
heating zone. This is particularly helpful when
the home uses only two heating zones. The
control replaces the need for a two circulator
zone panel. When DHW Terminal Function
() is set to “” the control’s two circulator
outputs are used to control two independent
heating zones. Refer to Table 15. A “TT” input
causes a call for heat and energizes the “System
Circulator” output to service heating zone 1 and
a second zone’s thermostat wired to the “DHW”
input causes a call for heat and energizes heating
zone 2 circulator wired to the “DHW Circulator”
output.
When there is a Second Heating Zone (call
for heat) the boiler is started and the DHW
Circulator terminal is energized. When Second
Heating Zone terminal is de-energized the call
for heat is ended and the DHW Circulator is deenergized. A Second Heating Zone is detected by
sensing a voltage on the DHW terminal.

X. troubleshooting
check the wiring on the boiler against the wiring
diagram in Figures 17 and 18. Ensure that incoming
120 Vac power polarity is correct and that the boiler
is properly grounded. Further, ensure that the control
power supply is 24 VAC (minimum 18 VAC to
maximum 30 VAC) and polarity is correct.
A. Before troubleshooting
The following pages contain trouble shooting tables for
use in diagnosing control problems. When using these
tables the following should be kept in mind:
1. This information is only meant to be used by
a professional heating technician as an aid in
diagnosing boiler problems.
2. Where applicable, perform startup checks and
adjustments outlined in Section VIII ‘System
Start-Up’.
4. All controls on the boiler are tested at least once in
the manufacturing process and a defective control
or component is generally the least likely cause.
Before replacing a component, try to rule out all
other possible causes.
3. In general, these tables assume that there are no
loose or miswired electrical connections. Before
using these tables inspect all electrical connections
on the boiler to make sure that they are tight. Also,
5. When checking voltage across wiring harness pins
be careful not to insert the meter probes into the
pins. Doing so may damage the pin, resulting in a
loose connection when the harness is reconnected.
Press “I” key on the control to change
from one parameter to the next. Each
setting will alternate between display

Description
The Boiler is in “Retry Delay”:
- The burner failed to light (no flame signal). After a 5 minute delay, control will attempt to light the burner
again. There is no limit to the number of retries.
Recycle Delay
- The burner loses flame during running mode, “”. After a 10 second delay, control will attempt to
light the burner again. If the burner loses flame during running mode, “” during the next six
recycles, control will progress to a soft lockout.
Refer to Troubleshooting Section, Err 2 for corrective action.
Refer to Troubleshooting Section, Err 29 for corrective action.
When a soft lockout occurs, boiler will shut down. Boiler automatically restarts once condition that caused
the lockout is corrected and the one-hour time delay is completed. Boiler can be restarted sooner than the
time delay by entering Adjustment Mode and selecting the reset button (see Adjustment Mode instructions)
or by cycling power. Soft Lockout is caused by one of the following:
- Err 63, Maximum Recycles Exceeded – The burner lost flame during running mode, “” six times
in a row. Refer to recommended corrective actions on next page to help determine the cause of the
problem.
- , Internal Failure, refer to Error code listing for recommended corrective action.
- , Flame sensed during post-purge (before gas valve signaled open). Check the gas valve for
proper operation. Replace gas valve is problem persists.
When a hard lockout occurs boiler shuts down.
If flame is detected in pre-purge control goes to Flame Out of Sequence Before trial, “” and
“” is reported. The control gives a flame 10 seconds to disappear. If flame goes away, control
resumes heating cycle from the beginning. If it doesn’t “” is cleared and “” is reported. When
flame is off control goes to Soft Lockout and “” is cleared. Check gas valve for proper operation.
