1) MOUNTING THE HEATER TO THE WALL
Your heater may or may not be installed in a NEMA 4/4X cabinet. Please follow the mounting instructions
as appropriate to your installation. Whenever possible, locate the heater as close to the point of hot water
use as possible. Time-to-temperature performance will improve the closer the heater is installed to the
point of use.
This heater must be installed in a location where
it is not subject to freezing temperatures.**
Make sure the brass fittings are at the bottom of the
heater and pointing “DOWN”. No other heater
orientation is permitted. Leave a service clearance of at
least 12” inches on the left and right sides of the heater.
SafeAdvantage: Install the heater with cabinet using the
supplied mounting feet following the instructions
provided with the cabinet. Be sure to use appropriately
rated fasteners to hold the cabinet/heater in place.
SpecAdvantage: Remove the cover by removing the
cover screws as indicated by the arrows (right) and
fasten the heater to the wall using the mounting holes
located at each corner of the back plate (lower right). Be
sure to use appropriately rated fasteners to hold the
heater in place.
2) PLUMBING HOOK-UP
The heater is equipped with NPT brass fittings. Make
sure ONLY NPT fittings are used for connection to this
heater.
Make the cold water inlet connection to the lower RIGHT
fitting and the hot water outlet connection to the lower
LEFT fitting. Reversed connections will cause erratic
operation and premature heater failure.

5) CONTROL FEATURES
BEFORE USING THIS CONTROL, MAKE SURE ALL PRIOR INSTALLATION STEPS HAVE
BEEN PROPERLY COMPLETED, ELECTRICAL POWER IS ON AND WATER IS PRESENT
IN THE HEATER.
PUSH BUTTON FLOW CHART
1) The SETPOINT TEMP or ACTUAL TEMP screen can be
selected for display as the home screen. Either of these
screens will remain on the display when the backlight timer
expires.
OR
2) There is a 5 minute time delay built into the control.
Regardless of which screen is being displayed, after 5
minutes of inactivity, the display will revert to the SETPOINT
TEMP screen.
3) The 4 push buttons are used to control the operation of
the heater. The LEFT and RIGHT buttons shift the display
from one screen to another. The DOWN and UP buttons
may change the values within selected screens.
4) As an example, when the screen displays SETPOINT
TEMP, the desired hot water temperature will increase 1
degree for each press of the UP button and decrease 1
degree for each press of the DOWN button. Note that
minimum and maximum setpoint temperatures are
established at the factory.
6
5) The LEFT and RIGHT buttons shift the display from one
screen to another. From the INLET TEMP screen, one
press of the RIGHT button will shift the display to the
SETPOINT TEMP screen. INLET TEMP shows the actual
temperature of the water entering the heater.
6) From the SETPOINT TEMP screen, one press of the
RIGHT button will shift the display to the ACTUAL TEMP
screen. This shows the actual temperature of the water
leaving the heater.
7) From the ACTUAL TEMP screen, one press of the RIGHT
button will shift the display to the LOAD PCT screen. This
shows the electrical power consumption as a percentage
of full power.
8) From the LOAD PCT screen, one press of the RIGHT
button will shift the display to the FLOWRATE screen. This
shows the rate of flow of water through the heater.
9) From the FLOWRATE screen, one press of the RIGHT
button will shift the display to the UNITS screen. This
shows the units of measure in either the ENGLISH or
METRIC systems. ENGLISH units are degrees Fahrenheit
and gallons per minute. METRIC units are degrees Celsius
and liters per second. Use the UP and Down buttons to
select the desired units of measure.
10) From the UNITS screen, one press of the RIGHT button
will shift the display to the SOFTWARE REVISION screen.
This shows the revision level of the software in the
control.
11) From the SOFTWARE REVISION screen, one press of
the RIGHT button will shift the display to the ERRORS
screen. This shows the error history of the heater.
“0 ERRORS” means that no errors have occurred.
If the heater has an error history of 4 errors; this history
will be displayed on the screen as shown. “CODE 1:E0”
refers to the first error and indicates it to be an E0 error.
One press of the UP button will show the second error as
“CODE 2:E0” and having the same E0 error.
Continued pressing of the UP or Down buttons will scroll
through each of the errors in the history (in this case a
total of 4). ERRORS indicate an undesirable condition but
will not shut down the operation of the heater.
7
ERROR CODES:
E0: Excessive water flow detected
Corrective action: Using the OUTLET BALL VALVE, slowly reduce water flow until
the desired temperature is achieved. The temperature is proportional to the flow through the
heater; the lower the flow, the higher the temperature and vice versa.
Keep the INLET BALL VALVE fully “OPEN”. NEVER RESTRICT THE WATER
FLOW USING THE INLET VALVE.
E1: Inlet temperature too hot to generate heat
12) FAULTS are communicated through the LCD display.
The display will switch from the SETPOINT screen to the
FAULT screen and back again every 3 seconds. FAULTS
indicate an undesirable condition and will immediately
shut down the operation of the heater. If faults are
appearing on your heater call Eemax Technical Support
for assistance.
FAULT CODES:
F0: Thermistor out of range
F1: No change in water temperature detected
F2: Dry fire detected - Optical Sensor Tripped
