GENERAL SAFETY
To meet commercial hot water use needs, the high
limit safety control on this water heater will shut off the
main gas valve before the outlet temperature reaches
210°F. However, water temperatures over 125°F can
cause instant severe burns or death from scalds.
When supplying general purpose hot water, the recommended initial setting for the temperature control is
125°F.
This section applies to Hot Water Supply Boilers and
Hot Water Heaters ONLY. For sanitary rinse applications where outlet temperatures of 180°F to 195°F are
required, a boiler is recommended since the 210°F
limit on water heaters will NOT allow the heater to
maintain these desired sanitary rinse temperatures.
Safety and energy conservation are factors to be considered when setting the water temperature on the
thermostat. The most energy-efficient operation will
result when the temperature setting is the lowest that
satisfies the needs of the application.
Water temperature over 125°F can cause instant
severe burns or death from scalds. Children, disabled
and elderly are at highest risk of being scalded.

Time/Temperature
Relationships in Scalds
NOTE: When this water heater is supplying general
purpose hot water 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.
The following chart details the relationship of water
temperature and time with regard to scald injury and
may be used as a guide in determining the safest
water temperature for your applications.
Maximum water temperatures occur just after the
heater’s burner has shut off. To determine the water
temperature being delivered, turn on a hot water
faucet and place a thermometer in the hot water
stream and read the thermometer.

Equipment Base
The temperature of the water in the heater can be regulated by using the Raypak Modulating Temperature
Control. To comply with safety regulations, the control
is set at 120°F when shipped from the factory (Mode 3
default setting for Tank Target).
The heater should be mounted on a level, structurally
sound surface. The heater is approved for installation
on a combustible surface but must NEVER be
installed on carpeting. Gas-fueled equipment installed
in enclosed parking garages must be located at least
18 in. above the floor.
To adjust the water temperature, follow the instruction
for the operation of the control starting on page 30 of
this manual. The control is shown below for identification purposes only. (See Fig. 4.)
CAUTION: This heater should be located in an
area where water leakage will not result in damage
to the area adjacent to the appliances or to the
structure. When such locations cannot be avoided, it
is recommended that a suitable catch pan,
adequately drained, be installed under the
appliance. The pan must not restrict air flow.
In addition, the heater shall be installed such that the
gas ignition system components are protected from
water (dripping, spraying, rain, etc.) during appliance
operation or service (circulator replacement, control
replacement, etc.).
If the heater needs to be secured to the ground, use
the brackets that were used to bolt the heater to the
shipping pallet.

Relief Valve Piping
This heater is equipped with a proprietary condensate
evaporation system which will evaporate any condensate that may begin to accumulate inside the primary
heat exchanger with water temperatures as low as
120°F (49°C).
WARNING: Pressure relief valve discharge piping
must be piped near the floor and close to a drain to
eliminate the potential of severe burns. Do not pipe
to any area where freezing could occur. Refer to
local codes.
Heaters operated with an inlet temperature of less
than 120°F (49°C) MUST have a manual bypass (see
Fig. 14) or an approved low-temperature operation
system to prevent problems with condensation. This
piping is like a primary/secondary boiler installation
with a bypass acting as the secondary boiler piping.
Raypak strongly recommends that thermometer(s) be
placed into the heater piping next to the in/out header
to facilitate temperature adjustment. Inlet water temperatures below 120°F (49°C) can excessively cool
the products of combustion, resulting in collection of
condensate in the heat exchanger area beyond the
capacity of the condensate evaporation system.
Temperature & Pressure Gauge
The temperature and pressure gauge is shipped loose
for field installation and must be installed within 12
inches of the boiler outlet (if possible) in an easily
readable location. Installation must comply with ASME
Section IV as well as all applicable national, state and
local codes.
Hydrostatic Test
Failure to reach or exceed 120°F (49°C) within 7 minutes may damage or cause failure of the heat
exchanger, combustion chamber, or other parts within
the combustion chamber. It can cause operational
problems, bad combustion, sooting, flue gas leakage
and reduced service life of the vent system. A bypass
allows part of the heater discharge water to be mixed
with the cooler water returning to the heater inlet to
increase the heater inlet temperature above 120°F
(49°C). This precautionary measure should prevent
the products of combustion from condensing beyond
the ability of the condensate management system
employed in this heater in most installations. Warranty
claims will be denied for damage or failures
caused by condensation.
Unlike many types of heaters, this heater does not require hydrostatic testing prior to being placed in
operation. The heat exchanger has already been factory-tested and is rated for 160 psi operating pressure.
However, Raypak does recommend hydrostatic testing of the piping connections to the heater and the rest
of the system prior to operation. This is particularly
true for hydronic systems using expensive glycolbased anti-freeze. Raypak recommends conducting
the hydrostatic test before connecting gas piping or
electrical supply.
Leaks must be repaired at once to prevent damage to
the heater. NEVER use petroleum-based stop-leak
compounds.
To perform hydrostatic test:
1. Connect fill water supply. With bleed valve open,
fill heater with water. When water flows from bleed
valve, shut off water. Close bleed valve. Carefully
fill the rest of the system, making sure to eliminate
any entrapped air by using high-point vents. Close
feed valve. Test at standard operating pressure for
at least 24 hours.
Cold water operation issues are applicable to both
cold water start and cold water run applications. Cold
water operation for 7 minutes or less on initial daily
start-up is acceptable. Where cold water starts will last
longer than 7 minutes or where cold water operation is
continuous, provisions must be made to mix higher
temperature outlet water with the colder inlet water
and thereby raise the inlet temperature to at least
120°F (49°C) within the 7-minute time limit.
2. Make sure constant gauge pressure has been
maintained throughout test.
Cold Water Starts
3. Check for leaks. Repair if found.
Cold water starts, where the inlet water temperature
remains below 120°F (49°C) for more than 7 minutes,
must have cold water start protection. Known protection methods consist of mixing heated outlet water
with the inlet water with a bypass to raise the inlet to
120°F (49°C) or higher. Once the system is heated up
and has return water temperatures of 120°F (49°C) or
higher, the mixing of outlet water with inlet water is no
Cold Water Operation
CAUTION: Damage due to internal condensation
may occur if the heater inlet water temperature does
not exceed 120°F (49°C) within 7 minutes of startup.

longer needed and the bypass can be shut off. If the
bypass is not shut off as the system heats up, the outlet temperature may continue to climb and trip the high
limit, thereby shutting down the heater. Thus an automatic valve system, such as a three-way proportional
valve or a modulating two-way valve to control the
bypass, should be utilized.

Hydronic Heating
Pump Selection
In order to ensure proper performance of your heater
system, you must install a correctly-sized pump. Raypak recommends designing for a ΔT within the range
of 10°F to 40°F (5°C to 20°C). See Table F for acceptable flow rates for each model (ΔT is the temperature
difference between the inlet and outlet water when the
heater is firing at full rate).
*
*Maximum 4 times the pipe diameter or 12”, whichever is less.
Fig. 7: Cold Water Start
Cold Water Run
Cold water run differs from cold water start in that the
system water entering the heater remains below
120°F (49°C) continuously. Typically, this is the case in
swimming pool heating. If the system water is kept in
a narrow temperature range of no more than 10°F
(5°C), a permanent manual bypass can be employed
and manually adjusted to achieve an inlet temperature
of 120°F (49°C) or higher as adjusted at the minimum
temperature in this narrow temperature range (i.e.
Range 75°F – 85°F – adjust bypass with temperature
at 75°F (24°C)) so that when temperature is 85°F
(29°C), minimum inlet temperature would be 130°F
(54°C). An injector pump arrangement may also be utilized to keep the heater loop at or above 120°F (49°C).
An injector pump approach has the added value of
being able to adjust to changes in the system water
coming back to the heater take-off.
Feedwater Regulator
Raypak recommends that a feedwater regulator be installed and set at 12 psi minimum pressure at the
highest point of the system. Install a check valve or
back flow device upstream of the regulator, with a
manual shut-off valve as required by local codes.
Piping
All high points should be vented. A heater installed
above radiation level must be provided with a low water cut-off device (sales order option F-10). This
heater, when used in connection with a refrigeration
system, must be installed so that the chilled medium is
piped in parallel with the heater with appropriate
valves to pre-vent the chilled medium from entering
the heater.
The piping system of a hot water heater connected to
heating coils located in air handling units where they
may be exposed to circulating refrigerated air, must be

Domestic Hot Water
Potable Water and Space Heating
When designing the water piping system for domestic
hot water applications, water hardness should be considered. Table G indicates the suggested flow rates for
soft, medium and hard water. Water hardness is expressed in grains per gallon.
CAUTION: When this heater is used for both
potable water and space heating, observe the
following to ensure proper operation.
1. All piping materials and components connected to
the water heater for the space heating application
shall be suitable for use with potable water.
2. Toxic chemicals, such as used for boiler treatment,
shall not be introduced into the potable water used
for space heating.
3. If the heater will be used to supply potable water,
it shall not be connected to any heating system or
components previously used with a non-potable
water heating appliance.
4. When the system requires water for space heating
at temperatures higher than 140°F (60°C), a
means such as a mixing valve shall be installed to
temper the water in order to reduce scald hazard
potential.

increase the inlet water temperature to a minimum of
105°F (40°C) for Pool Heater (P and WHP) versions
and 120°F (49°C) for Hydronic Heating (H7) or
Domestic Hot Water (WH1) versions, thereby reducing
the likelihood of condensation forming on the heat
exchanger. The pump also serves to circulate water
through the heater from the main system piping.
2. Turn on heater and wait until heater goes to full
fire.
3. With the heater operating at 100% firing rate, set
Valve A (the bypass) to 1⁄2 open position, and Valve
B to fully open position. See Fig. 14.
4. Adjust Valve A until the inlet water temperature is
105°F (40°C) or 120°F (49°C) depending upon
heater type.
CAUTION: Power to the heater should be
interlocked with the main system pump to make sure
the heater does not fire without the main system
pump in operation. Improper flow control can
damage the heater. Uncontrolled flow (too high) or
restricted flow (too low) can seriously damage the
heater. Follow these instructions to make sure your
heater is properly installed.
NOTE: Opening the valve will increase the
temperature and closing the valve will decrease the
temperature.
To complete the installation of the pool heater, the pool
thermostat needs to be installed in the main return water line, upstream of the heater. This will ensure that
the heater will be energized at the right time.
5. If this process does not raise the inlet water temperature to 105°F (40°C) for Pool Heater (P and
WHP) versions and 120°F (49°C) for Hydronic
Heating (H7) or Domestic Hot Water (WH1) versions and Valve A is fully open, then slowly throttle
Valve B closed to increase the inlet water temperature to the required temperature.
Automatic Chlorinators and Chemical
Feeders
CAUTION: Combustion air must not be contaminated by corrosive chemical fumes which can
damage the heater and void the warranty.
*
*Maximum 4 times the pipe diameter or 12”, whichever is less.
Fig. 13: Single Pool Heater Application
Adjustment of the manual bypass valve is critical to
proper operation of the heater. The manual bypass
valve should be adjusted to achieve a minimum inlet
water temperature of 105°F (40°C) for Pool Heater (P
and WHP) versions and 120°F (49°C) for Hydronic
Heating (H7) or Domestic Hot Water (WH1) versions
and a system supply water temperature below 140°F
(60°C). When starting with a cold pool, make initial
adjustments. Make final adjustments when pool water
approaches desired temperature.
All chemicals must be introduced and completely diluted into the pool or spa water before being circulated
through the heater. Do not place chlorine tablets or
bromine sticks in the skimmer. High chemical concentrations will result when the pump is not running (e.g.
overnight). Chlorinators must feed downstream of the
heater and have an anti-siphoning device to prevent
chemical back-up into the heater when the pump is
shut off.
NOTE: High chemical concentrates from feeders
and chlorinators that are out of adjustment will cause
very rapid corrosion of the heat exchanger in the
heater. Such damage is not covered under the
warranty.
Winterizing Your Heater
The use of a bypass is required for proper operation in
a pool heating application. Use the following instructions to set the manual bypass:
1. Turn on pump.
California Hot Water Supply, Inc.
Heaters installed outdoors as pool heaters in freezing
climate areas should be shut down for the winter. To
shut down the heater, turn off manual main gas valve
and main gas shut-off. Close isolation valves. Drain
the heater using the hose bibs located on the bottom
of the heat exchanger.
(800) 249-7244
17
NOTE: There are 2 separate drains on the MVB
that must BOTH be drained to protect the heat
exchanger. These are both accessible by removing
the lower front door from the heater. Drain any
piping of all water that may experience belowfreezing temperatures.
Pool/Spa Water Chemistry
CAUTION: Corrosive water voids all warranties.
NOTE: Chemical imbalance can cause severe
damage to your heater and associated equipment.
Chemical imbalance can cause severe damage to the
pool heater and associated equipment. Maintain the
water chemistry according to the chart below. If the
mineral content and dissolved solids in the water
become too high, scale forms inside the heat exchanger tubes, reducing heater efficiency and damaging the
heater. If the pH drops below 7.2, this will cause corrosion of the heat exchanger and severely damage the
heater. Heat exchanger damage resulting from chemical imbalance is not covered by the warranty.
For your health and the protection of your pool equipment, it is essential that your water be chemically
balanced. The following levels must be used as a
guide for balanced water.
Occasional chemical shock dosing of the pool or spa
should not damage the heater providing the water is
balanced.
Automatic chemical dosing devices and salt chlorinators are usually more efficient in heater water, unless
controlled, they can lead to excessive chlorine level
which can damage your heater.

Further advice should be obtained from your pool or
spa builder, accredited pool shop, or chemical supplier for the correct levels for your water.
Automatic Chlorinators and
Chemical Feeders
All chemicals must be introduced and completely diluted into the pool or spa water before being circulated
through the heater. Do not place sanitizing chemicals
in the skimmer. High chemical concentrations will
result when the pump is not running (e.g. overnight).
The heater must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing the upstream manual shut-off
valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply
piping system at test pressures equal to or less than
1/2 psi (3.45 kPa). Relieve test pressure in the gas
supply line prior to reconnecting the heater and its
manual shut-off valve to the gas supply line. FAILURE
TO FOLLOW THIS PROCEDURE MAY DAMAGE
THE GAS VALVE. Over-pressurized 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 an open flame.
Chlorinators must feed downstream of the heater and
have an anti-siphoning device to prevent chemical
back-up into the heater when the pump is shut off.
NOTE: High chemical concentrates from feeders
and chlorinators that are out of adjustment will cause
rapid corrosion to the heat exchanger. Such damage
is not covered under the warranty.
NOTE: Failure of a heat exchanger due to lime
scale build-up on the heating surface, low pH or
other chemical imbalance is non-warrantable.
Gas Supply
Fig. 15: Gas Supply Connection
DANGER: Make sure the gas on which the heater
will operate is the same type as specified on the
heater’s rating plate.
Gas piping must have a sediment trap ahead of the
heater gas controls, and a manual shut-off valve located outside the heater jacket. It is recommended
that a union be installed in the gas supply piping adjacent to the heater for servicing. The gas supply
pressure to the heater must not exceed 10.5 in. WC for
natural gas or 13.0 in. WC for propane gas.
A pounds-to-inches regulator must be installed to
reduce the gas supply pressure if it is higher than
noted above. This regulator should be placed a minimum distance of 10 times the pipe diameter upstream
of the heater gas controls. Refer to Table I for maximum pipe lengths.
Gas Supply Connection
CAUTION: The heater must be disconnected from
the gas supply during any pressure testing of the gas
supply system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psi
(3.45 kPa).
California Hot Water Supply, Inc.
CAUTION: Do not use Teflon tape on gas line pipe
thread. A pipe compound rated for use with natural
and propane gases is recommended. Apply
sparingly only on male pipe ends, leaving the two
end threads bare.
CAUTION: Support gas supply piping with
hangers, not by the heater or its accessories. Make
sure the gas piping is protected from physical
damage and freezing, where required.
Gas Supply Pressure
A minimum of 4.0 in. WC and a maximum of 10.5 in.
WC upstream gas pressure is required under load and
no-load conditions for natural gas. A minimum of 4.0
in. WC and a maximum of 13.0 in. WC is required for
propane gas. The gas pressure regulator(s) supplied
on the heater is for low-pressure service. If upstream
pressure exceeds these values, an intermediate gas
pressure regulator, of the lockup type, must be
installed.

Refer to Fig. 16-19.
NOTE: Minimum 18 AWG, 105°C, stranded wire
must be used for all low voltage (less than 30 volts)
external connections to the unit. Solid conductors
should not be used because they can cause
excessive tension on contact points. Install conduit
as appropriate. All high voltage wires must be the
same size (105°C, stranded wire) as the ones on the
unit or larger.
2. NOTE: Current draw noted on rating plate does
not include pump current.
1. Verify that circuit breaker is properly sized by
referring to heater rating plate. A dedicated circuit
breaker should be provided.

Controls
WARNING: Installation, adjustment and service of
heater controls, including timing of various operating
functions, must be performed by a qualified installer,
service agency or the gas supplier. Failure to do so
may result in control damage, heater malfunction,
property damage, personal injury, or death.
WARNING: Turn off the power to the heater before
installation, adjustment or service of any heater
controls. Failure to do so may result in board
damage, heater malfunction, property damage,
personal injury, or death.
NOTE: The vent cap and air intake hood must be
furnished by the heater manufacturer in accordance
with its listing (sales order option D-11).
CAUTION: This appliance has provisions to be
connected to more than one supply source. To
reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect all such
connections before servicing.
NOTE: Condensate can freeze on the vent cap.
Frozen condensate on the vent cap can result in a
blocked flue condition.
CAUTION: Risk of electric shock: More than one
disconnect switch may be required to de-energize
the equipment before servicing.
The Raypak electronic temperature control is provided to maintain the desired system water
temperature. The control has various modes of operation which are described on the following pages.
To minimize short cycling, locate the system (target)
sensor as follows:
For systems with less than 4:1 turndown, the
recommended location of the system (target) sensor is
in the system return loop, as shown in Fig. 29, 31, and
32.
Set-point: for a specific system supply temperature,
the system return (target) temperature settings, where
the sensor is located, should be reduced by the
difference between the system supply temperature
and the system return temperature. For example, to
Fig. 26: Outdoor Venting
30
California Hot Water Supply, Inc.
(800) 249-7244
30
maintain near 160ºF system supply temperature, and
if the system ΔT is 10ºF, then the system return (target)
set-point is 160-10=150ºF.
Deadband: Deadband is a band of temperature sensing where no action occurs. All temperature controllers
have a deadband and the purpose is to prevent shortcycling of the heater. The on-board temperature
controller has a deadband of 2ºF around the differential.
Differential: A heat source must be operated with a
temperature differential in order to prevent shortcycling. The temperature differential is divided around
the “target” temperature or set-point. The Call For Heat
(CFH) contact will close in the controller when the
water temperature is below the target temperature by
1/2 of the differential setting, and will open when the
water temperature is above the target temperature by
1/2 of the differential setting. See Fig. 27.
Fig. 28: Buffer Tank Piping
Operating Modes
Mode 1 – Not recommended.
Fig. 27: Differential Graph
For systems with less then 4:1 turndown, the control
should be placed on the system return, as shown in
Fig. 29, to avoid short cycling the heat source. Raypak
recommends using a smaller differential setting when
controlling the water temperature on the return side.
As a starting point, set the return differential to 10ºF
and this will allow the system return temperature to
vary 5ºF above and 5ºF below the set-point.
Mode 2 – Setpoint operation using primary/secondary
piping. The control operates the heater to satisfy a
remote system sensor. The heater is turned off based
on boiler target and boiler differential (factory default
H7, P and WHP boilers). See Fig. 29.
For systems with more than 4:1 turndown, the recommended location of the system (target) sensor is in the
system supply loop. When controlling systems with
more than 4:1 turndown; set the supply side differential to 20ºF and the temperature will vary ±10ºF around
the set-point.
In lieu of installing the target sensor in the system
return, a properly-sized buffer tank can be installed as
shown in Fig. 28. Consult factory for buffer tank sizing.

water is also controlled to the boiler target temperature
(factory default WH1 water heaters). See Fig. 30.
Mode 7 – Designed for an external input signal with
primary/secondary piping. The external input signal
can be provided from a BMS, an EMS or a sequencing control. The external input signal changes the
boiler target according to a linear scale (see Tables O
& P). The control operates the boiler burner to maintain the boiler target at the remote system sensor. See

Table P: 2-10 VDC or 4-20 mA External Input Signal
Mode 8 – This mode is used for remote control of the
heater. The Boil Max setting is the heater shutdown
temperature. The heater is enabled with a control signal ≥ 0.5 VDC. 0.5 VDC corresponds to minimum fire
an 10 VDC corresponds to 100% firing rate. The BOIL
MAX setting is the heater shutdown temperature.
EXTERNAL INPUT SIGNAL – Selects external input
signal range (0-10VDC or 2-10VDC):
0-10VDC or 0-20 mA external input signal – When
the 0-10VDC signal is selected, an input voltage of 1
VDC corresponds to a boiler target temperature of
50°F (10°C). An input voltage of 10 VDC corresponds
to a boiler target temperature of 220°F (104°C). As the
voltage varies between 1 VDC and 10 VDC, the boiler
target temperature varies linearly between 50°F
(10°C) and 220°F (104°C) (refer to Table O). If a voltage below 0.5 VDC is received, the boiler target
temperature is displayed as “– – –” indicating that
there is no longer an internal heat demand. A 0-20 mA
signal can be converted to a 0-10 VDC signal by
installing a 500 Ω resistor on the external input signal
device’s terminals.
Definitions
NOTE: The defined terms are not active in all
modes of control operation.
% OUT - Current percent modulation rate of heater.
BOIL DSGN - Design boiler water temperature used in
heat loss calculations.
BOIL MASS - This setting allows adjustment in the
field for high or low thermal masses; High thermal
mass (setting=3) provides slower reaction, lower thermal mass (setting=1) provides faster reaction.
2-10VDC or 4-20 mA external input signal – When
the 2-10VDC signal is selected, an input voltage of 2
VDC corresponds to a boiler target temperature of
50°F (10°C). An input voltage of 10 VDC corresponds
to a boiler target temperature of 220°F (104°C). As the
voltage varies between 2 VDC and 10 VDC, the boiler
target temperature varies linearly between 50°F
(10°C) and 220°F (104°C) (refer to Table P). If a voltage below 1.5 VDC is received, the boiler target
temperature is displayed as “– – –” indicating that
there is no longer an internal heat demand. A 4-20 mA
signal can be converted to a 2-10 VDC signal by
installing a 500 Ω resistor on the external input signal
device’s terminals.
BOIL MAX - Highest outlet water temperature that the
control is allowed to use as a target temperature.
BOIL MIN - Lowest outlet water temperature that the
control is allowed to use as a target temperature.
BOIL ON - Accumulated runtime of heater (up to 999
hours, then resets to 0).
BOIL OUT - Actual heater outlet water temperature.

Ignition Module
High Limit—Manual Reset
When additional heat is needed, the combustion air
blower starts to purge air from the combustion chamber for 15 seconds. On proof-of-air flow, the
air-proving switch closes and the igniter is energized.
To ensure safe operation, the gas valve cannot open
until the igniter is verified. The main burner is automatically lit when the device is powered and pre-purged.
The heater performs its own safety check and opens
the main valve only after the igniter is proven to be
capable of ignition. The standard ignition module will
attempt to light three times before locking out. To reset
it, turn off power to the heater, wait 30 seconds and reapply power.
This heater is equipped with a fixed setting manual reset high limit temperature device as standard or it may
have an optional adjustable setting manual reset high
temperature device.
The fixed setting manual reset high limit is located on
the In/Out header of the heat exchanger on the right
side of the heater (accessible through the front door
for reset as necessary).
The optional adjustable manual reset high limit is located inside the heater junction box. Push the reset
button and adjust the setting to approx. 40°F (20°C)
above desired outlet temperature.
The optional single-try ignition module will lock out
after failing to light one time. To reset it, press and
release the small, recessed black push button located
inside of the cut-out on the lower right-hand corner of
the ignition module case. Turning off the power to
the heater WILL NOT reset the ignition module.

START-UP
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS:
•
•
Pre Start-up
•
Filling System (Heating Boilers)
Fill system with water. Purge all air from the system.
Lower system pressure. Open valves for normal system operation, and fill system through feed pressure.
Manually open air vent on the compression tank until
water appears, then close vent.
Air Purge (Domestic Hot Water
Heaters)
•
•
•
Purge all air from system before lighting heater. This
can be normally accomplished by opening a downstream valve.
Raypak offers an optional air vent for the MVB heaters
which can be screwed directly into the inlet side of the
header to ensure that air is purged from the system.
This option also includes an adapter to allow the air
vent to be piped (in the field) to a suitable drain as required by the jurisdiction having authority.
CAUTION: An air vent should be installed at the
highest point in the system for proper operation. If
water piping is located higher than the header, it
should be relocated to the highest point in the
installed system.
•
Do not try to light any appliance.
Do not touch any electrical switch; do not use any
telephone in your building.
Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s telephone. Follow the gas supplier’s
instructions.
If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire
department.
Use only your hand to push in or turn the gas control knob. Never use tools. If the knob will not turn
by hand, do not try to repair it, call a qualified service technician. Forced or attempted repair may
result in a fire or explosion.
Do not use this appliance if any part has been
under water, immediately call a qualified service
technician to inspect the appliance and to replace
any part of the control system and any gas control
which has been under water.

pressure indicates a leaking gas valve which must
be replaced.
4. Next, close the upstream manual gas valve (field
supplied) and remove the manometers from the
bleedle valves in test point A and test point B.
Connect a rubber tube from the test point A bleedle valve to the test point B bleedle valve and
open the upstream manual gas valve. Make sure
that test point A & B bleedle valves have been
opened so as to allow gas to flow. This will bring
gas pressure to the second valve seat.
5. Open the bleedle valve at test point C and connect
a second rubber tube to it. Connect the other end
of the tube to a manometer and look for a build-up
of pressure. Increasing pressure indicates a leaking gas valve which must be replaced.
6. Remove rubber tube and manometers. Close
each test point bleedle valve as the tubes are
removed.
