RECEIVING EQUIPMENT
On receiving equipment it is suggested that you
• Review packing slip for the number of packages.
• Inspect for concealed damage immediately.
• Advise carrier, in writing, of shortages or damage.
• Claims are filed by the receiver against the carrier. The carrier, not the shipper, is responsible for any
shortage or damage whether visible or concealed.
B. INSTALLATION GUIDELINES
INSTALLATION REGULATIONS

inadequate supply of combustion air will result in incomplete combustion and eventual sooting of the heater.
Insufficient ventilation will cause excessive heat and rapid deterioration of electronic and electrical components.
Equipment rooms should be provided with TWO permanent air supply openings directly connected to outside air.
Each opening must have a minimum FREE area of one square inch per 4000 BTU per hour input of the total input
rating of all equipment in the room. Local codes or authorities having jurisdiction should be consulted for the following
table.

WARNING:
Indoor heaters require a drafthood that must be connected to a vent pipe and properly vented to the outside.
Failure to follow this procedure can cause fire or fatal carbon monoxide poisoning.
Vent piping the same size or larger than the draft hood outlet is recommended, however, when the total vent height
is at least ten (10) feet (draft hood relief opening to vent terminal), the vent pipe size may be reduced as specified
in Chapter 10 of the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1. As much as possible avoid long horizontal runs of vent
pipe and too many elbows. If installation requires horizontal non-vertical runs, the vent pipe must have a minimum
of 1/4 inch per foot rise and should be supported at not less than five foot intervals. Plumbers tape, criss-crossed,
will serve to space both horizontal and vertical piping. Gas vents supported only by the flashing and extending above
the roof more than five feet should be securely guyed or braced to withstand snow and wind load. We recommend
use of insulated vent pipe must terminate with a vent cap which complies with the local codes or, in the absence of
such codes, to the latest edition of the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1.
The discharge opening must be a minimum of three feet
vertically from the roof surface and at least two feet higher than any
10' OR LESS
part of the building within ten feet. Vent stack shall be at least five

(d) Place in operation the appliance being inspected.
Follow the lighting instructions. Adjust thermostat
so appliance will operate continuously.
At the time of removal of an existing heater, the following
steps shall be followed with each appliance remaining
connected to the common venting system placed in
operation, while the other appliances remaining connected to the common venting system are not in operation.
(e) Test for spillage at the draft hood relief opening
after 5 minutes of main burner operation. Use the
flame of a match or candle, or smoke from a
cigarette, cigar or pipe.
(a) Seal any unused openings in the common venting
system.
(f) After it has been determined that each appliance
remaining connected to the common venting system properly vents when tested as outlined above,
return doors, windows, exhaust fans, fireplace
dampers and any other gas burning appliance to
their previous conditions of use.
(b) Visually inspect the venting system for proper size
and horizontal pitch and determine there is no
blockage or restriction, leakage, corrosion and other
deficiencies which could cause an unsafe condition.
(c) Insofar as is practical, close all building doors and
windows and all doors between the space in which
the appliances remaining connected to the common venting system are located and other spaces
of the building. Turn on clothes dryers and any
appliance not connected to the common venting
system. Turn on any exhaust fans, such as range
hoods and bathroom exhausts, so they will operate
at maximum speed. Do not operate a summer
exhaust fan. Close fireplace dampers.
(g) Any improper operation of the common venting
system should be corrected so the installation
conforms with the latest edition of the National
Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1. When resizing
any portion of the common venting system,
the common venting system should be resized
to approach the minimum size as determined
using the appropriate tables in Part 11 of
the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1.
Manifolds that connect more than one heater to a
common chimney must be sized to handle the combined
load.
Consult available guides for proper sizing of the manifold
and the chimney. At no time should the area be less than
the area of the largest outlet.

POWER VENTING
Heaters may be connected to systems requiring mechanical draft exhaust fans. The installation must be
engineered by competent personnel in accordance with the latest edition of ANSI Z 223.1, local codes and with the
supplier of the fan.
Particular attention must be given to the type of vent pipe used, its size and location. Suitable interlocks must
be provided to prevent heater operation until the fan is operating as designed.
OUTDOOR WATER HEATERS
The point from where the flue products exit the heater must be a minimum of four (4) feet below, four (4) feet
horizontally from or one (1) foot above any door, window or gravity inlet to a building. The top surface of the heater
shall be at least three (3) feet above any forced air inlet, or intake ducts located within ten (10) feet horizontally.
Fig. #8245.1
HIGH WIND CONDITIONS (Outdoor Units Only)
In areas where high winds are frequent, it may be necessary to locate the heater a minimum of 3' from high vertical
walls, or install a wind break so the heater is not in direct wind current.
VENT DAMPER INSTALLATION
(MODELS 136 THROUGH 264) WHERE REQUIRED
LOCATION
The vent damper must be located in the vent so that
it serves only the appliance for which it is intended.
If improperly installed, a hazardous condition, such
as an explosion or carbon monoxide poisoning, could
result. Make certain that it is mounted in an accessible
location at least 6 in. (152.4 mm) from any combustible
material or the heat exchanger and that the position
indicator is in a visible location.
The vent damper must be installed after the appliance
draft hood, as close to the draft hood as practicable, and
without modification of the draft hood.
Fig. # 8182.0
16
MOUNTING
On vertical vents, the vent damper may be mounted with the actuator in any position. On horizontal vents, do
not mount the actuator either directly above or directly below the vent pipe; mount the vent damper actuator to the
side of the vent.
The vent damper is set up for a continuous pilot system. If the vent damper is installed on an intermittent Pilot
or Direct Spark Ignition equipped system, the energy savings of the vent damper can be improved by plugging the
hole in the vent damper blade using the knockout plug, Part No 105612R, provided in the parts envelope.
DO NOT plug the hole if installing the vent damper on a continuous pilot system as this will create a hazardous
condition.

CAUTION: The heater and its manual shut off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply during any pressure
testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.45 KPA). Dissipate test pressure in the gas supply
line before reconnecting the heater and its manual shut off valve to gas supply line. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THIS
PROCEDURE MAY DAMAGE THE GAS VALVE. OVER PRESSURED GAS VALVES ARE NOT COVERED BY
WARRANTY. The heater and its gas connections shall be leak tested before placing the appliance in operation.
Use soapy water for leak test. Do NOT use open flame.
Test piping as follows:
Pressure 1/2 PSIG (14" W.C.) or less - isolate heater by closing the manual shut-off valve prior to applying
pressure.
Pressure in excess of 1/2 PSIG (14" W.C.) - The heater must be disconnected from the gas system.
Water heaters having gas train components that have diaphragms in their construction are supplied with a bleed
line connection that must be connected to the outside atmosphere as required by the National Fuel Gas Code. Under
NO circumstances shall bleed lines terminate in the gas utilization equipment flue or exhaust system.

It is recommended that a gate valve be installed in the cold water supply line adjacent to the heater. If Local Codes
require a check valve - provisions must be made for thermal expansion.
A minimum pressure of 30 PSIG must be maintained in the system to prevent damage to the heater due to lack
of water circulation caused by vapor formation at suction side of the system pumps.
NOTE: Should the cold water supply be interrupted, for any reason, the gas supply must be manually shut off to
prevent heater damage. When the service is restored the lines must be vented to eliminate accumulated air.

DESCRIPTION OF CONTROLS IN GENERAL
ENERGY SAVING PUMP CONTROL
The energy saving pump control is an electronic
device that allows the operator to set the desired time for
the pump to run after the heater shuts off. The time is
factory-set at 7 minutes and it can be re-adjusted in the
field anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes.
In a conventional system, when the tankstat is
satisfied, the main gas valve closes, but the pump
continues operating. With the energy saving pump
control, the heater pump is programmed to continue
running for an optimum period of time in order to absorb
the residual heat from the combustion chamber and use
it in the system.
The pump then shuts off until the next call for heat is
received from the tankstat.
ELECTRONIC IGNITION
The intermittent ignition device conserves energy by
automatically extinguishing the pilot when desired temperature is reached. When additional heat is needed, the
pilot re-ignites electrically, eliminating costs of maintaining a constant pilot. To assure safe operation, the gas
valve cannot open until the pilot lights and is proven.

Ignition Module Electronic Safety
27
TANKSTAT TEMPERATURE CONTROL
This is a bulb immersion type device that will
regulate the water temperature in the storage tank.
When the water temperature rises to the set point, the
switch opens and shuts off the main burners. As the
water cools down, the switch closes and turns on the
main burners again to maintain the desired water temperature.
FLOW SWITCH
Dual purpose control shuts off heater in case of
pump failure or low water flow condition.
Factory mounted on all boilers except 136 and wired
in series with main gas valve.
NOTE: Flow switch will not operate if flow is less than
12 GPM.
Fig. # 8643
Temperature Control
Fig. #9317
HIGH LIMIT
The high limit is also a bulb immersion type device
that limits the water temperature in the heater outlet. It
will shut off the main burners when the heater outlet water
temperature exceeds the high limit setting, and cycles
on again when the water temperature drops to the set
point, less the differential.
Models are equipped with manual reset high limit on
all models except 136. Model 136 is equipped with an
automatic reset high limit.
Flow Switch
HIGH LIMIT (Manual Reset)
The manual reset high limit is similar to the automatic reset high limit, except the reset button on the front
of the case must be pushed in to allow the main burners
to operate again after a high limit shutdown.
Models are equipped with manual reset high limit.
The temperature setting is usually set 30° to 40°F above
the operating temperature.

100% PILOT SAFETY (IID Units)
All heaters employ electronic devices, which close
the main gas valve within 8/10 of a second whenever the
pilot flame is interrupted. Pilot flame is automatically lit
when the device is powered. Unit performs its own safety
check and opens the main valve only after the pilot is
proven to be lit.

TIME/TEMPERATURE RELATIONSHIPS IN SCALDS
The temperature of the water in the water heater can be
regulated by setting the temperature dial on front of the
thermostat. To comply with safety regulations the
thermostat was set at its lowest setting before the water
heater was shipped from the factory. The illustration
below illustrates the thermostat and how to adjust the
water temperature.
Water temperature over 125°F can
cause severe burns instantly or
death from scalds.
To adjust the water temperature, insert a small
straight screwdriver into
slotted screw in hole in front
of thermostat and turn
wheel to desired setting.
Thermostat is adjustable up
to 210°F.
Children, disabled and elderly are at
highest risk of being scalded.
CAUTION!! - Hotter water
increases the risk of
SCALDING!
See instruction manual before setting temperature at water heater.
! DANGER
Feel water before bathing or showering.
There is a Hot Water SCALD Potential if the thermostat
is set too high.
Temperature limiting valves are
available, see manual.
NOTE: When this water heater is supplying general
purpose hot water requirements for use by individuals, a
thermostatically controlled mixing valve for reducing
point of use water temperature is recommended to
reduce the risk of scald injury. Contact a licensed
plumber or the local plumbing authority for further information.
Maximum water temperatures occur just after burner has
shut off. To find hot water temperature being delivered,
turn on a hot water faucet and place a thermometer in the
hot water stream and read the thermometer.

INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
Six Months:
1. Heat Exchanger Surfaces.
a. Shut off electric and gas supply to heater.
b. Examine external surfaces
2. Preliminary examination maybe done by using a
mirror and a light in the burner area.
3. Remove venting, heater jacket top, flue collector and
heat exchanger baffles. Remove inspection baffles.
c. If surfaces are sooted or foreign material is lodged
in fins, cleaning is required.
To clean:
A. Remove burner tray.
- Disconnect gas control valves and pilot valves by
breaking at unions.
- Disconnect wiring from gas valves.
- Remove burner tray retention screws.
- Slide tray from heater carefully to avoid disturbing
or damaging IID.
B. Remove tube bundle.
- Disconnect inlet-outlet header by removing flange
nuts and retaining bolts.
- Slide tube bundle away from inlet-outlet header,
taking care to avoid damage to refractory and
sheetmetal.
- Washdown external surfaces of tube bundle.
- Inspect interior surfaces of tubes. Clean deposits
over 1/16" thickness.
- Clean tubes using tube cleaning kit.
C. Ream tubes by using auger bit.
D. Complete cleaning by wire brushing to remove all
debris.
E. Immerse tube bundle in non-inhibited descale solvent.
It is a good practice to make a periodic inspection of the
heater. It is recommended that the home owner or user
checks the heater after the first and third month of
operation, and then on an annual basis, or more often if
desired. It is also recommended to have a qualified
service agency check the heater before each heating
season, or at anytime there may be an indication of a
problem.
1. Keep heater area free from combustibles and
flammable liquids.
2. Be certain that All combustion and ventilation air
openings are free and clear of all obstructions.
Screens, covering same, must be clean.
Monthly:
1. Make visual inspection of burner flames.
Fig. #8144
a. Flame should be blue with light yellow tips.
b. Yellow flame indicates clogged air openings.
c. Lifting of flame indicated high gas pressure.
Check using manometer at 1/8 in. NPT tapping
located between the gas valve and the burners.
Pressure should be 3.7 in. W.C.
2. Inspect and operate all controls and gas valves.
3. Visually inspect system for water leaks
NOTE: DO NOT wire brush external surfaces. Steam
cleaning is a recommended procedure.
F. Replace tube bundle using the reverse of the
above procedures.
G. Before replacing burner tray clean burners.
4. Flow switch should be removed and checked.
5. Low water cutout, if provided, should be removed
and checked.
33
DANGER: Keep heater area clear and free from combustibles and flammable materials. Do not obstruct the
flow of combustion and ventilating air into the heater
enclosure. Failure to observe these safety precautions
can cause fire, explosion, or asphyxiation.
2. Venting System Inspection
Visually inspect the venting system. Make sure the
vent connections are secure and have not become
disengaged. Look for any indication of corrosion, or
carbon (soot) streaks which could cause leakage of
products of combustion into the living space. Inspect the
vent terminal outside the building. Make sure it is not
damaged to cause blockage or restriction of the flue gas.
Observe for any indication of soot. The presence of soot
accummulation in the vent terminal would indicate an
abnormal operating condition. This should be investigated and corrected by a qualified service agency.
3. Circulator (Water Pump) Inspection
The circulator is permanently lubricated and thus,
will not require any lubrication. Inspect for evidence of
water leakage. This should be corrected to prevent any
possible damage to electrical components of the boiler.
1. Burner Inspection
Clean the main burners and air louvers of dust, lint
and debris. With burner in operation, make a visual check
of the burner flame and the pilot flame (when equipped).
Yellow flames indicate some restriction of combustion air
openings. A bright orange, luminous flame is not normal
and can cause sooting under prolonged operation.
Should this condition be observed, contact immediately
a qualified service agency to correct the problem.
CAUTION: In case of a prolonged power failure during
freezing weather conditions, heater and piping system
must be drained completely to avoid possible damage to
the system.
To prevent the potential freezing damage to the
system, it is recommended that the following system
shut down procedure be performed.
SYSTEM SHUT DOWN PROCEDURE
1. Set the thermostat to "OFF" or the lowest setting.
2. Turn off all electric switches to the heater.
3. Turn off all gas valves supplying gas to the heater.
Refer to operating instruction label on the heater.
4. Shut off the water supply to the heater piping system
loop.
5. Open drain valve on the heater to remove water
from the heater and the piping circuits.
NOTE: It may be necessary to open the purge valves
and/or manual air vents to facilitate complete drainage of
water from the heating system.
4. Service Assistance
If service is required on the heater, contact your
local service agency. It is important and very often will
save time if you state the model number, serial number
and type of gas used. This information will be found on
the nameplate of the heater.
