Features and Components
Electronic Ignition Control
Controls
Each heater is equipped with an ignition control. The
solid state ignition control (Figure 4), ignites the burner by
utilizing a spark igniter. The spark igniter shuts of f during
the heating cycle and the burner flame is sensed through a
remote flame sensor.
The ignition control will tr y to ignite the burner three times
before lockout. The control waits 15 minutes before tr ying
again to ignite the burner. This is a continuous cycle.
Figure 1.
The Eliminator (self-cleaning system)
These units include The Eliminator (Self-Cleaning System) installed
in the front water inlet, see Figure 2. The Eliminator inlet tube can
only be used in the front water inlet connection. Do not install the
Eliminator inlet tube in either the top or back inlet water connection.
The Eliminator must be oriented correctly for proper function. There
is a marked range on the pipe nipple portion of the Eliminator, that
must be aligned with the top of the inlet spud. A label above the
jacket hole has an arrow that will point to the marked portion of the
pipe nipple if the orientation is correct. If the arrow does not point
within the marked range on the pipe nipple, adjust the pipe nipple
to correct. A pipe union is supplied with the Eliminator to reduce the
probability of misaligning the Eliminator accidentally while tightening
the connection to the inlet water supply line. Improper orientation of
the Eliminator can cause poor performance of the heater and can
significantly reduce outlet water temperatures during heavy draws.
IGNITION CONTROL
Figure 4.
Blower/Burner Assembly
Note: The Eliminator may have 1, 3 or 7 cross tubes.
Figure 2.
High Limit Switch
The digital thermostat (Figure 3) contains the high limit (energy
cutout) switch. The high limit switch interrupts burner gas flow should
the water temperature reach 203°F (95°C).
In the event of high limit switch operation, the water heater cannot be
restarted unless the water temperature is reduced to approximately
120°F (49°C). The high limit reset button on the front of the control
then needs to be depressed.
Continued manual resetting of high limit control, preceded by higher
than usual water temperature is evidence of high limit switch operation.
Figure 5.
Spark Igniter
Contact your dealer or service agent if continued high limit switch
operation occurs.
The ignition control energizes the Spark Igniter to ignite the Burner.
Intake Air Screen

Do not install this water heater directly on a carpeted floor. A fire
hazard may result. Instead the water heater must be placed on a
metal or wood panel extending beyond the full width and depth
by at least 3 inches in any direction. If the heater is installed
in a carpeted alcove, the entire floor shall be covered by the
panel. Also, see the DRAINING requirements in MAINTENANCE
Section.
Locating the Water Heater
CAUTION
Property Damage Hazard
• All water heaters eventually leak.
The heater shall be located or protected so it is not subject to
physical damage by a moving vehicle.
• Do not install without adequate drainage.
Flammable items, pressurized containers or any other potential
fire hazardous articles must never be placed on or adjacent to
the heater. Open containers or flammable material should not be
stored or used in the same room with the heater.
When installing the heater, consideration must be given to
proper location. Location selected should be as close to the
stack or chimney as practicable, with adequate air supply and as
centralized with the piping system as possible.
The heater must not be located in an area where it will be subject
to freezing.
Locate it near a floor drain. The heater should be located in an
area where leakage from heater or connections will not result in
damage to adjacent area or to lower floors of the structure.
Fire or Explosion Hazard
When such locations cannot be avoided, a suitable drain pan
should be installed under heater. Such pans should be fabricated
with sides at least 2” deep, with length and width at least 2” greater
than diameter of heater and must be piped to an adequate drain.
Pan must not restrict combustion air flow.
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
Avoid all ignition sources if you smell gas.
Do not expose water heater controls to excessive gas
pressure.
Clearances
Use only the gas shown on the water heater rating label.
Maintain required clearances to combustibles.
This water heater is approved for installation on combustible
flooring in an alcove with minimum clearance from combustion
construction as indicated in Figure 7 and Table 4.
Keep ignition sources away from faucets after extended
periods of non-use.
In all installations the minimum combustible clearances from
vent piping shall be 6” (15.2 cm). Vent piping passing through a
combustible wall or ceiling must be a continuous run (no joints)
and retain 6” (15.2 cm) clearance unless an approved reducing
thimble is used.
Read instruction manual before
installing, using or servicing
water heater.
A service clearance of at least 24” (61 cm) should be maintained
from serviceable parts.
There is a risk in using fuel burning appliances such as gas
water heaters in rooms, garages or other areas where gasoline,
other flammable liquids or engine driven equipment or vehicles
are stored, operated or repaired. Flammable vapors are heavy
and travel along the floor and may be ignited by the heater's
igniter or main burner flames causing fire or explosion. Some
local codes permit operation of gas appliances in such areas if
they are installed 18" or more above the floor. This may reduce
the risk if location in such an area cannot be avoided.

products. The purpose of an insulation blanket is to reduce the
standby heat loss encountered with storage tank heaters. The
water heaters covered by this manual meet or exceed the Energy
Policy Act standards with respect to insulation and standby heat
loss requirements, making an insulation blanket unnecessary.
Should you choose to apply an insulation blanket to this
heater, you should follow these instructions. See the Features
and Components section of this manual for identification of
components mentioned below. Failure to follow these instructions
can restrict the air flow required for proper combustion, potentially
resulting in fire, asphyxiation, serious personal injury or death.

DO NOT apply insulation to the front of the combustion
chamber flange plate to insure that the spark igniter, flame
sensor, and sightglass remain uncovered.
DO NOT cover the gas valve or the Temperature-Pressure
Relief Valve.
DO NOT apply insulation within 5” (13 cm) of the blower, to
insure the safe operation of the blower assembly.
DO NOT apply insulation on the control box that encloses
the thermostat, ignition control, and variable frequency drive.
DO NOT cover the instruction manual. Keep it on the side of
the water heater or nearby for future reference.
DO obtain new warning and instruction labels from the
manufacturer for placement on the blanket directly over the
existing labels.
DO inspect the insulation blanket frequently to make certain
it does not sag, thereby obstructing combustion air flow.
Hard Water
Where hard water conditions exist, water softening or the
threshold type of water treatment is recommended. This will
protect the dishwashers, coffee urns, water heaters, water piping
and other equipment.
Figure 8.
The NSF Leg Kit (part number 9008214005) is needed only for
applications that must conform to NSF/ANSI Standard 5. The
installed height of the water heater will increase by 3" (7.6 cm) when
the leg kit is installed. Follow these steps to install the Leg Kit. Use
caution to prevent damage to the unit when installing the Leg Kit
See the Maintenance Section in this manual for sediment and
lime scale removal procedures.
Circulation Pumps
A circulating pump is used when a system requires a circulating
loop or there is a storage tank used in conjunction with the water
heater. See Water Piping Diagrams in this manual for installation
location of circulating pumps.
1. Lift, tilt or lay the unit on its side to access the bottom of the legs.
2. Position the extension under leg aligning the holes in the leg
extension with the holes in the leg. Assemble the bolt, bevel
washers, flat washers, and nut through the aligned holes in
the leg and leg extension as shown in Figure 8.
3. Once in place, tighten the nut and bolt assembly. Torque to 70
ft.lbs (9.67 kgf-m).
See the Circulation Pump Wiring Diagrams (Figure 9.) in this
manual for electrical hookup information. Install in accordance
with the current edition of the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70
or the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.
4. Insure that all four nut and bolt assemblies are torqued to the
specified value before placing the unit on the floor.
All-bronze or stainless steel circulating pumps are recommended
for use with commercial water heaters.

Installation Requirements
Some addition adjustment maybe required later to maintain
a steady gas supply pressure.
5. When installing multiple water heaters in the same gas
supply system it is recommended that individual positive
lock-up gas pressure regulators be installed at each unit.
Gas Supply Systems
Low pressure building gas supply systems are defined as those
systems that cannot under any circumstances exceed 14” W.C.
(3.49 kPa) (1/2 PSI Gauge). These systems do not require
pressure regulation. Measurements should be taken to insure
that gas pressures are stable and fall within the requirements
stated on the water heater rating plate. Readings should be
taken with all gas burning equipment off (static pressure) and
with all gas burning equipment running at maximum rate (dynamic
pressure). The gas supply pressure must be stable within 1.5”
W.C. (0.37 kPa) from static to dynamic pressure to provide good
performance. Pressure drops that exceed 1.5” W.C. (0.37 kPa)
may cause rough starting, noisy combustion or nuisance outages.
Increases or spikes in static pressure during off cycles may
cause failure to ignite or in severe cases damage to appliance
gas valves. If your low pressure system does NOT meet these
requirements, the installer is responsible for the corrections.
Power Supply
The water heaters covered in this manual require a 120 VAC,
1Ø (single phase), 60Hz, 15 amp power supply and must also
be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the
absence of local codes, with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/
NFPA 70 or the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.
Water Temperature Control and Mixing Valves
Water temperature over 125°F (52°C)
can cause severe burns instantly
resulting in severe injury or death.
High Pressure building supply systems use pressures that exceed
14” W.C. (3.49 kPa) (1/2 PSI Gauge). These systems must use
field supplied regulators to lower the gas pressure to less than
14” W.C. (3.49 kPa) (1/2 PSI Gauge). Appliances require gas
regulators that are properly sized for the water heater input and
deliver the rating plate specified pressures. Gas supply systems
where pressure exceeds 5 PSI (34.5 kPa) often require multiple
regulators to achieve desired pressures. Systems in excess
of 5 PSI building pressure should be designed by gas delivery
professionals for best performance. Water heaters connected to
gas supply systems that exceed 14” W.C. (3.49 kPa) (1/2 PSI
Gauge) at any time must be equipped with a gas supply regulator.
Children, the elderly and the
physically or mentally disabled are at
highest risk for scald injury.
Feel water before bathing or
showering.
Temperature limiting devices such as
mixing valves must be installed
when required by codes and to
ensure safe temperatures at fixtures.
Water heated to a temperature which will satisfy clothes washing,
dish washing, and other sanitizing needs can scald and cause
permanent injury upon contact. Short repeated heating cycles
caused by small hot water uses can cause temperatures at the
point of use to exceed the water heater’s temperature setting by
up to 20°F (11°C).
Gas Pressure Requirements
All models require a minimum gas supply pressure of 3.5” W.C.
(0.87 kPa) The minimum supply pressure is measured while gas
is flowing (dynamic pressure). The supply pressure (dynamic)
should never fall below 3.5” W.C. (0.87 kPa) The supply pressure
should be measured with all gas fired appliances connected to
the common main firing at full capacity. If the supply pressure
drops more than 1.5” W.C. (0.37 kPa) as gas begins to flow to
the water heater then the supply gas system including the gas
line and/or the gas regulator may be restricted or undersized.
See Supply Gas Regulator section and Gas Piping section of
this manual.
Some people are more likely to be permanently injured by
hot water than others. These include the elderly, children, the
infirm and the physically/mentally disabled. Table 5 shows the
approximate time-to-burn relationship for normal adult skin.
If anyone using hot water provided by the water heater being
installed fits into one of these groups or if there is a local code
or state law requiring a certain water temperature at the point of
use, then special precautions must be taken.
The gas valve on all models has a maximum gas supply pressure
limit of 14" W.C. (3.48 kPa). The maximum supply pressure is
measured while gas is not flowing (static pressure).
In addition to using the lowest possible temperature setting that
satisfies the demand of the application a Mixing Valve should be
installed at the water heater (see Figure 10) or at the hot water
taps to further reduce system water temperature.
Supply Gas Regulator
The maximum allowable gas supply pressure for this water
heater is 14 inches W.C. (3.48 kPa). Install a positive lock-up gas
pressure regulator in the gas supply line if inlet gas pressure can
exceed 14 inches W.C. (3.48 kPa) at any time. Regulators must
be sized/used according to manufacturer's specifications.
Mixing valves are available at plumbing supply stores. Consult
a Qualified Installer or Service Agency. Follow mixing valve
manufacturer’s instructions for installation of the valves.
Table 5.
If a positive lock-up regulator is required follow these instructions:
1. Positive lock-up gas pressure regulators must be rated at or
above the input Btu/hr rating of the water heater they supply.
2. Supply gas regulators shall have inlet and outlet connections
not less than the minimum supply gas line size for the water
heater they supply. See Table 8. on page 23.
3. Positive lock-up gas pressure regulator(s) should be
installed no closer than 3 feet (1 meter) and no farther than 8
feet (2.4 meters) of equivalent length from the water heater’s
inlet gas connection.
4. After installing the positive lock-up gas pressure regulator(s)
an initial nominal supply pressure setting of 7.0” W.C. (1.74
kPa) while the water heater is operating is recommended
and will generally provide good water heater operation.

Dishwashing Machines
All dishwashing machines meeting the National Sanitation
Foundation requirements are designed to operate with water
flow pressures between 15 and 25 pounds per square inch
(103 kPa and 173 kPa). Flow pressures above 25 pounds
per square inch (173 kPa), or below 15 pounds per square
inch (103 kPa), will result in improperly sanitized dishes.
Where pressures are high, a water pressure reducing or flow
regulating control valve should be used in the 180°F (82°C)
line to the dishwashing machine and should be adjusted to
deliver water pressure between these limits.
Can cause serious injury or death.
This water heater is provided with a properly rated/sized and
certified combination Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve (T&P
valve) by the manufacturer. The valve is certified by a nationally
recognized testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection
of production of listed equipment of materials as meeting the
requirements for Relief Valves for Hot Water Supply Systems,
ANSI Z21.22 • CSA 4.4, and the code requirements of ASME.
The National Sanitation Foundation also recommends circulation
of 180°F (82°C) water. The circulation should be just enough
to provide 180°F (82°C) water at the point of take-off to the
dishwashing machine.
If replaced, the new T&P valve must meet the requirements
of local codes, but not less than a combination TemperaturePressure Relief Valve rated/sized and certified as indicated in
the above paragraph. The new valve must be marked with a
maximum set pressure not to exceed the marked hydrostatic
working pressure of the water heater (150 psi = 1,035 kPa) and
a discharge capacity not less than the water heater Btu/hr or kW
input rate as shown on the water heater’s model rating label.
Adjust flow by throttling a full port ball valve installed in the
circulating line on the outlet side of the pump. Never throttle flow
on the suction side of a pump. See Water Piping Diagrams in
this manual.
Closed Water Systems
NOTE: In addition to the factory installed Temperature-Pressure
Relief Valve on the water heater, each remote storage tank that
may be installed and piped to a water heating appliance must also
have its own properly sized, rated and approved TemperaturePressure Relief Valve installed. Call the toll free technical
support phone number listed on the back cover of this manual
for technical assistance in sizing a Temperature-Pressure Relief
Valve for remote storage tanks.
Water supply systems may, because of code requirements
or such conditions as high line pressure, among others, have
installed devices such as pressure reducing valves, check
valves, and back flow preventers. Devices such as these cause
the water system to be a closed system.
Thermal Expansion
 s water is heated, it expands (thermal expansion). In a closed
A
system the volume of water will grow when it is heated. As the
volume of water grows there will be a corresponding increase
in water pressure due to thermal expansion. Thermal expansion
can cause premature tank failure (leakage). This type of failure
is not covered under the limited warranty. Thermal expansion
can also cause intermittent Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve
operation: water discharged from the valve due to excessive
pressure build up. This condition is not covered under the limited
warranty. The Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve is not intended
for the constant relief of thermal expansion.
For safe operation of the water heater, the Temperature-Pressure
Relief Valve must not be removed from its designated opening
nor plugged. The Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve must be
installed directly into the fitting of the water heater designed for the
relief valve. Install discharge piping so that any discharge will exit
the pipe within 6 inches (15.2 cm) above an adequate floor drain,
or external to the building. In cold climates it is recommended
that it be terminated at an adequate drain inside the building. Be
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. Excessive length, over 30 feet (9.14 m), or
use of more than four elbows can cause restriction and reduce
the discharge capacity of the valve.
A properly sized thermal expansion tank must be installed on
all closed systems to control the harmful effects of thermal
13
No valve or other obstruction is to be placed between the
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve and the tank. Do not connect
discharge piping directly to the drain unless a 6” (15.2 cm)
air gap is provided. To prevent bodily injury, hazard to life, or
property damage, the relief valve must be allowed to discharge
water in adequate quantities should circumstances demand. If
the discharge pipe is not connected to a drain or other suitable
means, the water flow may cause property damage.
see Closed Water Systems and Thermal Expansion on page 13.

Hot water discharge.
Keep clear of TemperaturePressure Relief Valve
discharge outlet.
Breathing carbon monoxide can cause brain damage or
death. Always read and understand instruction manual.
Corrosion of the flue ways and vent system may occur if air for
combustion contains certain chemical vapors. Such corrosion
may result in failure and risk of asphyxiation.
The Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve must be manually
operated at least twice 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 in this
manual, and replace the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve with
a properly rated/sized new one.
Combustion air that is contaminated can greatly diminish the life
span of the water heater and water heater components such as
hot surface igniters and burners. Propellants of aerosol sprays,
beauty shop supplies, water softener chemicals and chemicals
used in dry cleaning processes that are present in the combustion,
ventilation or ambient air can cause such damage.
Do not store products of this sort near the water heater. Air which
is brought in contact with the water heater should not contain any
of these chemicals. If necessary, uncontaminated air should be
obtained from remote or outdoor sources. The limited warranty
is voided when failure of water heater is due to a corrosive
atmosphere. (See limited warranty for complete terms and
conditions).
NOTE: The purpose of a Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve is
to prevent excessive temperatures and pressures in the storage
tank. The T&P valve is not intended for the constant relief of
thermal expansion. A properly sized thermal expansion tank must
be installed on all closed systems to control thermal expansion,
14
provide combustion, ventilation and dilution air.
Air Requirements
Unusually Tight Construction
In unconfined spaces in buildings, infiltration may be adequate
to provide air for combustion, ventilation and dilution of flue
gases. However, in buildings of unusually tight construction (for
example, weather stripping, heavily insulated, caulked, vapor
barrier, etc.) additional air must be provided using the methods
described in the Confined Space section that follows.
Breathing Hazard - Carbon Monoxide Gas
Install water heater in accordance with
the Instruction Manual and NFPA 54 or
CAN/CSA-B149.1.
To avoid injury, combustion and ventilation
air must be taken from outdoors.
Do not place chemical vapor emitting
products near water heater.
Confined Space
A Confined Space is one whose volume IS LESS THAN 50 cubic
feet per 1,000 Btu/hr (4.8 cubic meters per kW) of the total input
rating of all appliances installed in the space.
Breathing carbon monoxide can cause brain damage or
death. Always read and understand instruction manual.
Openings must be installed to provide fresh air for combustion,
ventilation and dilution in confined spaces. The required size for
the openings is dependent on the method used to provide fresh
air to the confined space AND the total Btu/hr input rating of all
appliances installed in the space.
For safe operation an adequate supply of fresh uncontaminated
air for combustion and ventilation must be provided.
An insufficient supply of air can cause recirculation of combustion
products resulting in contamination that may be hazardous to
life. Such a condition often will result in a yellow, luminous burner
flame, causing sooting of the combustion chamber, burners and
flue tubes and creates a risk of asphyxiation.
Exhaust Fans
Where exhaust fans are installed, additional air shall be provided
to replace the exhausted air. When an exhaust fan is installed
in the same space with a water heater, sufficient openings to
provide fresh air must be provided that accommodate the
requirements for all appliances in the room and the exhaust fan.
Undersized openings will cause air to be drawn into the room
through the water heater’s vent system causing poor combustion.
Sooting, serious damage to the water heater and the risk of fire
or explosion may result. It can also create a risk of asphyxiation.
Do not install the water heater in a confined space unless an
adequate supply of air for combustion and ventilation is brought
in to that space using the methods described in the Confined
Space section that follows.
Never obstruct the flow of ventilation air. If you have any doubts
or questions at all, call your gas supplier. Failure to provide the
proper amount of combustion air can result in a fire or explosion
and cause property damage, serious bodily injury or death.
Louvers and Grilles
The free areas of the fresh air openings in the instructions that
follow do not take in to account the presence of louvers, grilles or
screens in the openings.
Unconfined Space
An Unconfined Space is one whose volume IS NOT LESS THAN
50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu/hr (4.8 cubic meters per kW) of the
total input rating of all appliances installed in the space. Rooms
communicating directly with the space, in which the appliances
are installed, through openings not furnished with doors, are
considered a part of the unconfined space.
The required size of openings for combustion, ventilation and
dilution air shall be based on the “net free area” of each opening.
Where the free area through a design of louver or grille or screen
is known, it shall be used in calculating the size of opening
required to provide the free area specified. Where the louver and
grille design and free area are not known, it shall be assumed
that wood louvers will have 25% free area and metal louvers and
grilles will have 75% free area. Non motorized louvers and grilles
shall be fixed in the open position.
Makeup air requirements for the operation of exhaust fans,
kitchen ventilation systems, clothes dryers and fireplaces shall
also be considered in determining the adequacy of a space to
VENTING INSTALLATION
• Do not connect the heater to a common vent or chimney with
solid fuel burning equipment. This practice is prohibited by
many local building codes as is the practice of venting gas
fired equipment to the duct work of ventilation systems.
Venting
THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THIS SECTION ON VENTING MUST
BE FOLLOWED TO AVOID CHOKED COMBUSTION OR
RECIRCULATION OF FLUE GASES. SUCH CONDITIONS CAUSE
SOOTING OR RISKS OF FIRE AND ASPHYXIATION.
This heater is not approved for direct vent installation.
Heater must be protected from freezing downdrafts.
Remove all soot or other obstructions from the chimney that will
retard a free draft.
Type B venting is required with these heaters. For typical venting
application see TECHNICAL DATA VENTING on pages 18 and 19.

This water heater must be vented in compliance with all local codes,
the current revision of the National Fuel Gas Code (ANSI-Z223.1)
and with the Category I Venting Tables.
• Where a separate vent connection is not available and the vent
pipe from the heater must be connected to a common vent with
an oil burning furnace, the vent pipe should enter the smaller
common vent or chimney at a point above the large vent pipe.
If any part of the vent system is exposed to ambient temperatures
below 40°F (4.4°C) it must be insulated to prevent condensation.

Water heater installation
Water Line Connections
T&P Valve Discharge Pipe
The water piping installation must conform to these instructions
and to all local code authority having jurisdiction. Good practice
requires that all heavy piping be supported.
Read and observe all requirements in the following sections
before installation of the water piping begins:
Explosion Hazard
1. Water Temperature Control and Mixing Valves on page 12.
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve
must comply with ANSI Z21.22CSA 4.4 and ASME code.
2. Dishwashing Machines on page 13.
3. Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve on page 13.
Properly sized temperaturepressure relief valve must be
installed in opening provided.
4. Closed Systems and Thermal Expansion on page 13.
5. For multiple water heater installations see Water Piping
Diagrams beginning on page 34.
Can result in overheating and
excessive tank pressure.
Water (potable) Heating And Space Heating
1. All piping components connected to this unit for space
heating applications shall be suitable for use with potable
water.
Can cause serious injury or death.
2. Toxic chemicals, such as those used for boiler treatment,
shall NEVER be introduced into this system.
This water heater is provided with a properly rated/sized and
certified combination temperature - pressure (T&P) relief valve by
the manufacturer. See Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve on pages
13-14 for information on replacement and other requirements.
3. This unit may NEVER be connected to any existing heating
system or component(s) previously used with a non-potable
water heating appliance.
CAUTION
4. When the system requires water for space heating at
temperatures higher than required for domestic water
purposes, a tempering valve must be installed. Please
refer to installation diagrams beginning on page 34 of this
manual for suggested piping arrangements.
Water Damage Hazard
• Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve discharge
5. These water heaters cannot be used in space heating
applications only
pipe must terminate at adequate drain.
Thermometers (not Supplied)
Thermometers should be obtained and field installed as shown
in the installation diagrams.
Install a discharge pipe between the T&P valve discharge opening
and a suitable floor drain. Do not connect discharge piping
directly to the drain unless a 6” (15.2 cm) air gap is provided.
To prevent bodily injury, hazard to life, or property damage, the
relief valve must be allowed to discharge water in adequate
quantities should circumstances demand. If the discharge pipe is
not connected to a drain or other suitable means, the water flow
may cause property damage.
Thermometers are installed in the system as a means of
detecting the temperature of the outlet water supply.
Water Piping Diagrams
This manual provides detailed water piping diagrams for typical
methods of application for the water heaters, see Water Piping
Diagrams beginning on page 34.
T&P Valve Discharge Pipe Requirements:
• Shall not be smaller in size than the outlet pipe size of the
valve, or have any reducing couplings or other restrictions.
The water heater may be installed by itself, or with a separate
storage tank. When used with a separate storage tank, the
circulation may be either by gravity or by means of circulating
pump. Adjust flow by throttling a full port ball valve installed in the
circulating line on the outlet side of the pump. Never throttle flow
on the suction side of a pump. See the Water Piping Diagrams
beginning on page 34.
• Shall not be plugged or blocked.
• Shall not be exposed to freezing temperatures.
• Shall be of material listed for hot water distribution.
• Shall be installed so as to allow complete drainage of both
the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve and the discharge
pipe.
Note: In addition to the factory installed Temperature-Pressure
Relief Valve (T&P valve) on the water heater, each remote
storage tank that may be installed and piped to a water heating
appliance must also have its own properly sized, rated and
approved Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve installed.
• Must terminate a maximum of six inches above a floor
drain or external to the building. In cold climates, it is
recommended that the discharge pipe be terminated at an
adequate drain inside the building.
Call the toll free technical support phone number listed on the
back cover of this manual for further assistance in sizing a T&P
valve for remote storage tanks.
• Shall not have any valve or other obstruction between the
relief valve and the drain.

Gas Piping
Gas Meter Size – Natural Gases Only
Contact your local gas service company to ensure that adequate
gas service is available and to review applicable installation codes
for your area.
Be sure the gas meter has sufficient capacity to supply the full rated
gas input of the water heater as well as the requirements of all other
gas fired equipment supplied by the meter. If gas meter is too small,
ask the gas company to install a larger meter having adequate
capacity.
Size the main gas line in accordance with Table 8. The figures shown
are for straight lengths of pipe at 0.5 in. W.C. pressure drop, which is
considered normal for low pressure systems. Note: Fittings such as
elbows, tees and line regulators will add to the pipe pressure drop.
Also refer to the latest version of the National Fuel Gas Code.
GAS PIPING AND SEDIMENT TRAP INSTALLATION
Schedule 40 Steel or Wrought Iron Pipe is the preferred material
for the gas line of this water heater. It is imperative to follow the
sizing recommendations in the latest version of the National Fuel
Gas Code if Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing (CSST) is used as
the gas line for this water heater.
The heater is not intended for operation at higher than 14.0" W.C.natural gas, (1/2 pound per square inch gage) supply gas pressure.
Exposure to higher supply pressure may cause damage to the
gas valve which could result in fire or explosion. If overpressure
has occurred such as through improper testing of gas lines or
emergency malfunction of the supply system, the gas valve must be
checked for safe operation. Make sure that the outside vents on the
supply regulators and the safety vent valves are protected against
blockage. These are parts of the gas supply system, not the heater.
Vent blockage may occur during ice storms.

Fire and Explosion Hazard
Use joint compound or Teflon tape
compatible with propane gas.
Leak test before placing the water
heater in operation.
Disconnect gas piping and main gas
shutoff valve before leak testing.
Install sediment trap in accordance
with NFPA 54.
Any time work is done on the gas supply system perform a leak test
to avoid the possibility of fire or explosion.
1.For test pressures exceeding 1/2 psi (3.45 kPa) disconnect the
water heater and its Main Gas Shutoff Valve from the gas supply
piping system during testing, see Figure 21. The gas supply line
must be capped when disconnected from the water heater.
It is important to guard against gas valve fouling from contaminants
in the gas ways. Such fouling may cause improper operation, fire or
explosion.
2.For test pressures of 1/2 psi (3.45 kpa) or less, the water heater
need not be disconnected, but must be isolated from the supply
gas line by closing the Main Gas Shutoff Valve during testing.
If copper supply lines are used they must be internally tinned and
certified for gas service. Before attaching the gas line, be sure that
all gas pipe is clean on the inside.
3.Coat all supply gas line joints and connections upstream of the
water heater with a non-corrosive soap and water solution to
test for leaks. Bubbles indicate a gas leak. Do not use matches,
candles, flame or other sources of ignition for this purpose.
To trap any dirt or foreign material in the gas supply line, a sediment
trap must be incorporated in the piping (see Figure 21). The sediment
trap must be readily accessible and not subject to freezing conditions.
Install in accordance with recommendations of serving gas suppliers.
Refer to the latest version of the National Fuel Gas Code.
4.Repair any leaks before placing the water heater in operation.
Purging
To prevent damage, care must be taken not to apply too much torque
when attaching gas supply pipe to gas valve inlet.
Gas line purging is required with new piping or systems in which air
has entered.
Apply joint compounds (pipe dope) sparingly and only to the male
threads of pipe joints. Do not apply compounds to the first two threads.
Use compounds resistant to the action of liquefied petroleum gases.
Purging should be performed per the current edition of NFPA 54 the
National Fuel Gas Code.

Preparation
1.Adjust the thermostat to the lowest temperature setting.
2.Turn the water heater’s on/off switch to the “off” position.
3.Close the Main Gas Shut Off Valve, see Figure 21 on page 23.
4.Wait five (5) minutes for any residual gas to clear.
5.Open the Supply Gas Pressure Port on the gas valve by turning
the center screw counter-clockwise. Connect the manometer
to the supply gas pressure test port, see Figure 22.
6.Open the Main Gas Shutoff Valve.
7.Measure and record the supply gas pressure, this is a “static”
supply gas pressure reading; while the water heater is not firing.
Light the water heater in accordance with the Lighting and
Operation Instruction label on the water heater and in this manual
on page 26.
The water heaters covered by this manual are equipped with
an electronic control system that automatically sequences the
Blower, the Igniter, the 24 VAC Gas Valve, Burner ignition,
and flame sensing. The control system will lock out after three
unsuccessful ignition attempts.
Before attempting start up, thoroughly study and familiarize
yourself with the exact Sequence Of Operation, see the written
Sequence Of Operation on page 26 and the Sequence Of
Operation Flow Chart on page 27.
Be certain that the water heater is full of water, that air is purged
from the gas and water lines and that there are no leaks in the
gas and water lines. Ensure all inlet water valves are open.
Filling The Water Heater
Follow these steps to fill the water heater prior to start up.
1.Close the heater drain valve.
2.Open a nearby hot water faucet to permit the air in the system
to escape.
3.Fully open the cold water inlet valve allowing the piping and
water heater to fill with water.
4.Close the hot water faucet opened in Step 2 as water starts to flow.
Figure 22. – Top View
Lighting The Water Heater
1.Turn the water heater’s on/off switch to the “on” position.
2.Adjust the thermostat to the desired water temperature.
3.Record the supply gas pressure when the 24 VAC Gas Valve is
energized and the Burner is operating. This is a “dynamic” gas
pressure reading; while the water heater is firing.
4.Compare the actual supply gas pressure reading recorded
above to the required minimum/maximum values given in Table
3 on page 8. Adjust supply gas pressure as necessary, see the
instructions that follow.
5.After the supply gas pressure adjustments are complete, turn off
the water heater and close the Main Gas Supply Shut Off Valve.
Disconnect the manometer from the Supply Gas Pressure Port
and turn the center screw clockwise until the port is closed.
Supply Gas Line Purging
Fire or Explosion Hazard
Gas line purging is required with new piping or systems in
which air has entered.
To avoid risk of fire or explosion purge discharge must not
enter into confined areas or spaces where ignition can occur.
The area must be well ventilated and all sources of ignition
must be deactivated or removed.
Use only the gas shown on the water heater rating label.
Keep ignition sources away from faucets after extended
periods of non-use.
Supply Gas Pressure Adjustment
Read instruction manual before
installing, using or servicing
water heater.
Fire and Explosion Hazard
Do not use water heater with any gas
other than the gas shown on the rating
label.
Excessive gas pressure to gas valve can
cause serious injury or death.
Turn off gas lines during installation.
Contact a qualified installer or service
agency for installation and service.
1.Close the Main Gas Shutoff Valve, see Figure 21 on page 23.
2.Purge all air from the supply gas line up to the water heater’s
Main Gas Shutoff Valve.
3.When all air has been purged from the supply gas line, tighten
all supply gas line connections.
4.Check for gas leaks, see Gas Line Leak Testing on page 23
and repair any leaks found.
24
Supply gas pressure shall be measured while the water heater
is not firing (static pressure) and while the water heater is firing
at full capacity (dynamic pressure).
7.If improper venting is observed during any of the above tests,
the venting system must be corrected.
FAILURE TO CORRECT BACK DRAFTS MAY CAUSE AIR
CONTAMINATION AND UNSAFE CONDITIONS.
If the supply gas pressure to the water heater is not between
the required minimum and maximum values given in Table 3
on page 8 adjust the supply gas regulator as necessary. Adjust
the supply gas regulator(s) per the regulator manufacturer’s
instructions to achieve the required “static” and “dynamic”
supply gas pressure.
• If the back draft cannot be corrected by the normal method or
if a suitable draft cannot be obtained, a blower type flue gas
exhauster must be employed to assure proper venting and
correct combustion.
Checking the Input
Multiple Water Heater Installations:
Follow these instructions to determine the firing rate of the water
heater.
In multiple water heater installations or in installations where
the installed water heater(s) share a common gas supply main
with other gas fired appliances; the supply gas pressures shall
be measured at each water heater with all gas fired appliances
connected to a common main firing at full capacity.
1.Follow the procedure described in the "Initial Start Up" section
on page 24 to measure the static and dynamic supply gas
pressures. Verify that the static and dynamic supply gas
pressures conform to the values listed in Table 3 on page 8.
On multiple water heater installations the supply gas line regulators
shall be adjusted to provide gas pressure to each water heater
within the minimum and maximum supply pressure requirements
listed in Table 3 on page 8 with all gas fired appliances connected
to a common gas main firing at full capacity.
2.Use this formula to “clock” the meter. Be sure that other gas
consuming appliances are not operating during this interval.
(3600/T) x H = Btuh
T = Time in seconds to burn one cubic foot of gas.
Note: A pressure drop of more than 1.5” W. C. (0.37 kPa)
when the Main Burner ignites is an indication of an inadequate
supply of gas and can lead to ignition failure, rough starts and/
or rough operation. If a drop of more than 1.5” W. C. (0.37 kPa)
in supply gas pressure occurs when the Main Burner ignites,
ensure the supply gas lines and regulator(s) are properly sized
and installed. See the requirements for Supply Gas Regulator
on page 12 and Gas Piping on page 23. Ensure all requirements
and installation instructions are maintained.
H = Btu’s per cubic foot of gas.
Btuh = Actual heater input.
Example: (BCL395T2506NOX)
T = 14.4 seconds
H = 1000 BTU/Cu.Ft.
Btuh = (3,600/14.4) x 1,000 = 250,000
(Compare with model and rating.)
Checking Venting
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD THE GAS INPUT EXCEED
THE INPUT SHOWN ON THE HEATER'S RATING PLATE.
The following steps shall be followed with each appliance
connected to the venting system placed in operation, while any
other appliances connected to the venting system are not in
operation.
Water Temperature Adjustment
1.Seal any unused openings in the venting system.
Water temperature over 125°F (52°C)
can cause severe burns instantly
resulting in severe injury or death.
2.Inspect the venting system for proper size and horizontal pitch, as
required in the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1or the CAN/
CGA B149 Installation Codes and these instructions. Determine
that there is no blockage or restriction, leakage, corrosion and
other deficiencies which could cause an unsafe condition.
Children, the elderly and the
physically or mentally disabled are at
highest risk for scald injury.
Feel water before bathing or
showering.
3.So far as is practical, close all building doors and windows
and all doors between the space in which the water heater(s)
connected to the venting system are located and other spaces
of the building. Turn on all appliances not connected to the
venting system. Turn on all exhaust fans, such as range hoods
and bathroom exhausts, so they shall operate at maximum
speed. Close fireplace dampers.
Temperature limiting devices such as
mixing valves must be installed
when required by codes and to
ensure safe temperatures at fixtures.
The water temperature is controlled by a thermostat, Fig. 3,
which has two sensing elements. One sensor is located near the
top of the tank and the other is near the center. The thermostat
is set in the lowest position before the heater leaves the factory.
4.Follow the lighting instruction. Place the water heater being
inspected in operation. Adjust thermostat so water heater
shall operate continuously.
5.Inspect vent system for leakage after 5 minutes of main burner
operation.
The thermostat temperature dial, Fig. 3, is accessible by
removing the control cover. The dial is adjustable and may be set
for 120°F (49°C) to 180°F (82°C) water temperature, but 120°F
(49°C) is the recommended starting point. It is suggested the dial
be placed on the lowest setting which produces an acceptable
hot water supply. This will always give the most energy efficient
operation. The temperature control has a 4°F fixed differential.
6.After it has been determined that each appliance connected
to the 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.
25
Sequence of Operation
The following information will describe the Sequence of Operation
for this water heater.
8. If the Flame Sensor does not detect a strong enough flame, the
Ignition Control shuts off the Gas Valve and allows the Blower to
purge the unit for 30 seconds. At that time, the Ignition Control
restarts with step 6. It will try and ignite the main burners 2 more
times. If the unit does not light, the Ignition Control will wait 15
minutes and then restart at step 6. This cycle will continue until the
unit lights or the power is shutoff to the unit.
9. If the Flame Sensor detects a strong flame, the Ignition Control
will energize the main gas valve output, which will cause the
blower to run at a pre-determined high speed until call-for-heat
is removed.
10.Once the unit is satisfied, the Thermostat will shut off the Blower,
Gas Valve and Ignition Control and the unit will be in standby
mode until another call for heat is initiated by the thermostat.
1. Switch power on to unit.
2. Thermostat calls for heat.
3. UGB send PWM signal to blower to start the blower at high prepurge speed.
4. The blower pressure switch is closed, 24VAC power is applied to
the Ignition Control Module.
5. 20 seconds later blower starts to slow down to a slow ignition
speed preparing for ignition process.
6. 30 seconds after being energized, the Ignition Control provides
power to the Spark Igniter and opens the Gas Valve.
7. Ignition Control maintains spark for up to 4 seconds and monitors
Flame Sensor to determine if Burner is lit.
See the flow chart on page 27 for more detailed information.

Maintenance
Expansion on page 13. The Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve
is not intended for the constant relief of thermal expansion.
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve leakage due to pressure build
up in a closed system that does not have a thermal expansion
tank installed is not covered under the limited warranty. Thermal
expansion tanks must be installed on all closed water systems.
DO NOT PLUG THE TEMPERATURE-PRESSURE RELIEF
VALVE OPENING. THIS CAN CAUSE PROPERTY DAMAGE,
SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
Venting System
Examine the venting system every six months for obstructions
and/or deterioration of the vent piping. Check all vent system
connections for leakage and repair or reseal as necessary.
Remove all soot or other obstructions from chimney which will
retard free draft.
Intake Air Screen
The intake air screen is attached to the inlet end of the combustion
blower. Inspect the intake air screen every six months. The intake air
screen should be cleaned of any buildup of debris or foreign material.
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve Test
explosion hazard
Temperature-Pressure relief Valve
must comply with AnSI Z21.22CSA 4.4 and ASMe code.
• Burn hazard.
• Hot water discharge.
Properly sized temperaturepressure relief valve must be
installed in opening provided.
• Keep clear of TemperaturePressure Relief Valve
discharge outlet.
Can result in overheating and
excessive tank pressure.
It is recommended that the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve
should be checked to ensure that it is in operating condition
every 6 months.
Can cause serious injury or death.
When checking the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve operation,
make sure that (1) no one is in front of or around the outlet of the
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve discharge line, and (2) that
the water discharge will not cause any property damage, as the
water may be extremely hot. Use care when operating valve as
the valve may be hot.
Anode Rod Inspection
To check the relief valve, lift the lever at the end of the valve
several times, see Figure 25. The valve should seat properly and
operate freely.
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 and drain the water heater, see Draining and
Flushing on page 29. Replace the Temperature-Pressure Relief
The anode rod is used to protect the tank from corrosion. Most
hot water tanks are equipped with an anode rod. The submerged
rod sacrifices itself to protect the tank. Instead of corroding tank,
water ions attack and eat away the anode rod. This does not affect
water’s taste or color. The rod must be maintained to keep tank
in operating condition.
Anode deterioration depends on water conductivity, not necessarily
water condition. A corroded or pitted anode rod indicates high
water conductivity and should be checked and/or replaced more
often than an anode rod that appears to be intact. Replacement
of a depleted anode rod can extend the life of your water heater.
Inspection should be conducted by a qualified technician, and at
a minimum should be checked annually after the warranty period.
Artificially softened water is exceedingly corrosive because the
process substitutes sodium ions for magnesium and calcium ions.
The use of a water softener may decrease the life of the water
heater tank.
The anode rod should be inspected after a maximum of three
years and annually thereafter until the condition of the anode
rod dictates its replacement. Anode replacement is not covered
by warranty.
NOTE: Artificially softened water requires the anode rod to be
inspected annually.
Valve with a properly rated/sized new one, see TemperaturePressure Relief Valve on pages 13-14 for instructions on
replacement.
Figure 25.
If the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve on the water heater
weeps or discharges periodically, this may be due to thermal
expansion.
NOTE: Excessive water pressure is the most common cause of
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve leakage. Excessive water
system pressure is most often caused by "thermal expansion"
in a "closed system." See Closed Water Systems and Thermal
28
Draining and Flushing
Periodic Removal of Lime Deposits from
Tank Type Commercial Water Heaters
The amount of calcium carbonate (lime) released from water is
in direct proportion to water temperature and usage, see chart.
The higher the water temperature or water usage, the more lime
deposits are dropped out of the water. This is the lime scale
which forms in pipes, heaters and on cooking utensils.
Burn harzard.
Hot water discharge.
Lime accumulation may affect the life of equipment, the efficiency
of the heater, and fuel consumption characteristics. The usage of
water softening equipment greatly reduces the hardness of the
water. However, this equipment does not always remove all of
the hardness (lime). For this reason it is recommended that a
regular schedule for deliming be maintained.
Keep hands clear of drain
valve discharge.
It is recommended that the water heater storage tank be drained
and flushed every 6 months to reduce sediment buildup. The
water heater should be drained if being shut down during freezing
temperatures.
The time between cleaning will vary from weeks to years
depending upon water conditions and usage.
The depth of lime buildup should be measured periodically.
Heaters equipped with cleanouts will have about 2" of lime
buildup when the level of lime has reached the bottom of the
cleanout opening. A schedule for deliming should then be set up
based on the amount of time it would take for a 1" buildup of lime.
It is recommended that the water heater initially be inspected
after 6 months.
To Drain the Water Heater Storage Tank:
1. Turn off the electrical supply to the water heater.
2. Turn off the gas supply at the Main Gas Shutoff Valve if
the water heater is going to be shut down for an extended
period.
3. Ensure the cold water inlet valve is open.
Example 1:
Initial inspection after 6 months shows 1/2" of lime accumulation.
Therefore, the heater should be delimed once a year.
4. Open a nearby hot water faucet and let the water run until
the water is no longer hot.
5. Close the cold water inlet valve to the water heater.
Example 2:
Initial inspection after 6 months shows 2" of lime accumulation.
Therefore, the heater should be delimed every 3 months.
6. Connect a hose to the water heater drain valve and terminate
it to an adequate drain.
7. Open the water heater drain valve and allow all the water to
drain from the storage tank.
8. Close the water heater drain valve when all water in the
storage tank has drained.
9. Close the hot water faucet opened in Step 4.
10. If the water heater is going to be shut down for an extended
period, the drain valve should be left open.
To Flush the Water Heater Storage Tank:
1. Turn off the electrical supply to the water heater.
2. Ensure the cold water inlet valve is open.
3. Open a nearby hot water faucet and let the water run until
the water is no longer hot. Then close the hot water faucet.
4. Connect a hose to the drain valve and terminate it to an
adequate drain.
5. Ensure the drain hose is secured before and during the
entire flushing procedure. Flushing is performed with system
water pressure applied to the water heater.
6. Open the water heater drain valve to flush the storage tank.
7. Flush the water heater storage tank to remove sediment and
allow the water to flow until it runs clean.
8. Close the water heater drain valve when flushing is completed.
Figure 26.
9. Remove the drain hose.
Deliming Solvents
10. Fill the water heater - see Filling The Water Heater in this manual.
UN•LIME is recommended for deliming. UN•LIME is a patented
food grade acid which is safe to handle and does not create the
harmful fumes which are associated with other products.
11. Turn on the electrical supply to place the water heater back
in operation.
12. Turn on the gas supply to the water heater at the Main Gas
Shutoff Valve.
UN•LIME may be obtained from your dealer, distributor or water
heater manufacturer. Order Part Number 9005416105, 1 gallon,
packed 4 gallons per case or Part Number 9005417105, 5 gallon
container.
13. Allow the water heater to complete several heating cycles to
ensure it is operating properly.
29
NOTE: Un•Lime is not available for use in Canada.
Hydrochloric base acids are not recommended for use on glass
lined tanks.
Chemical Hazard
Observe handling instructions on label of product being used.
Tank Cleanout Procedure
• Product contains phosphoric acid.
The following practices will ensure longer life and enable the unit
to operate at its designed efficiency:
• Keep out of reach of children.
• Use rubber or neoprene gloves.
1. Once a month the heater should be flushed. Open the drain
valve and allow two gallons of water to drain from the heater.
Inlet water valve should remain open to maintain pressure
in tank.
UN•LIME contains phosphoric acid. In case of external contact,
flush with cool water. If irritation persists, get medical attention. If
swallowed, give 1 or 2 glasses of water or milk and call physician.
2. A cleanout opening is provided for periodic cleaning of
the tank. Gas must be shut off and heater drained before
opening cleanout.
Get immediate medical attention for eyes. Keep out of reach of
children.
NOTE: THE USE OF RUBBER OR NEOPRENE GLOVES IS
RECOMMENDED, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE ANY OPEN
SORES OR CUTS TO AVOID UNNECESSARY IRRITATION
OR DISCOMFORT.
To clean heater through cleanout opening, proceed as follows:
3. Drain heater.
4. Remove outer cover plate from lower side of heater jacket.
1. Turn off fuel and/or power supply to heater. Also, turn off
power to any electrical device or equipment, which is
attached, or part of the system.
5. Remove six (6) hex head screws securing tank cleanout
plate and remove plate.
6. Remove lime, scale, or sediment using care not to damage
the glass lining.
2. Open hot water side of faucet closest to heater and allow
water to run until it is cool enough to handle safely.
7. Inspect cleanout plate gasket, if new gasket is required,
replace with part no. 9004099215.
3. Close cold water inlet valve to heater.
4. Connect hose to drain valve at bottom of heater and start
draining heater into suitable floor drain area.
8. Install cleanout plate. Be sure to draw plate up tight by
tightening screws securely.
5. Remove relief valve while heater is draining. NOTE: Do not
replace relief valve until deliming is completed. Relief valve
opening will also act as a vent in case of possible contact
between the delimer and the anode rod(s), which may
produce flammable hydrogen-air mixtures.
9. Replace outer jacket cover plate.
In some water areas the sediment might not be removed
by this method and may result in the water heater making
rumbling or boiling noises. To dissolve and remove these more
stubborn mineral deposits, UN•LIME Professional Delimer
should be used.
6. If relief valve appears to be limed-up, place it in a clean glass or
plastic container adequate in size so that you can pour enough
UN•LIME® into the container to cover the valve and allow
space for foaming. When foaming stops, run fresh cool water
into the container and rinse the relief valve for a few minutes.
Deliming Using Flo-Jug Method
UN•LIME in the 5 gallon size is recommended for deliming of
all models. Contact your local dealer, distributor or water heater
manufacturer.
7. If heater does not drain completely after a reasonable length
of time, turn off the main water supply valve to stop water
from entering the tank due to a by-pass problem or defective
cold water inlet valve. Also, check for clogged drain valve
opening. Heater must be completely drained before
introducing UN•LIME.
Prepare the Water Heater
To delime the water heater using the Flo-Jug method, first
prepare the heater for deliming.
8. Remove the cleanout cover and place a clean plastic bucket
next to the cleanout opening.
Partially open the cold water inlet valve to allow time to
accomplish the following and then close the valve.
Explosion Hazard
While the water is being run through the tank, insert a stiff
wire, copper tube flattened at one end or an opened wire coat
hanger through the cleanout opening and scrape out any
loose deposits of scale or sediment. This is an economical
way to avoid unnecessary usage of the deliming solution.
Flammable hydrogen gases
may be present.
Keep all ignition sources away
from faucet when turning on
hot water.
Repeat the opening and closing of the cold water inlet valve
as necessary but be sure the heater is completely drained
when ready to introduce the UN•LIME.
Upon completion, reinstall the cleanout cover and use a new
cleanout cover gasket (part number 9004099215).
Do not smoke or have open flame or sparks in vicinity of heater.
Do not mix UN•LIME with other chemicals. Do not allow contact
with magnesium, aluminum or galvanized metals.
Remove the drain valve.
30
and pour the UN•LIME into the heater.
9. Install the long plastic male adapter insert fitting into the
drain valve opening of heater after applying Teflon tape or
paste to threads. Tighten firmly by hand and use wrench or
adjustable pliers to check for secure connection. Do not over
tighten to avoid damage to threads and fittings.
7. Lower container, you may have to place the container on
its empty carton to prevent the UN•LIME from flowing back
into the container.
8. Let UN•LIME remain in the heater for 5 minutes and then
lower the container to the “Drain” Position, see Figure 27.
Prepare the Up-N-Down Transfer Kit
The next step is the preparation on the Up-N-Down Transfer Kit,
if you have not already done so:
9. Deliming activity is indicated by foaming on the surface of the
UN•LIME. If there is deliming activity, repeat steps 6 thru 8.
1. With the 5 gallon Up-N-Down container in the vertical
position, unscrew the plastic vent cap in the handle and
pierce the plastic membrane over the vent boss under the
cap to allow the container to vent.
Normally, lime removal will be completed within one hour. Severe
build-up of lime may take longer than an hour to complete descaling.
Note: To check UN•LIME for continued use, place some scale
or white chalk in a glass with a small amount of UN•LIME. If
the material is vigorously dissolved by the UN•LIME, it can be
reused; if not, the UN•LIME should be replaced.
Note: If your container does not have the vent cap and
vent boss, drill a 3/16” hole in the handle. When you have
finished deliming you will be able to plug this drilled vent with
the stainless steel screw that is supplied with the kit.
2. Remove the container’s cap and cut the plastic membrane
located in the 3/4” IPT opening in the cap. Take care to not
damage the threads.
3. Find the 3/4” male adapter, apply teflon tape to the threaded
end and screw it into the 3/4” IPT opening in the cap.
4. Put cap with male adapter back on the container and slide
3/4” hose over end of male adapter and fasten in place using
hose clamp provided.
Delime using Flo-Jug Method
5. Slide the hose clamp over end of hose and slide hose over
the male adapter in the water heater drain opening and
secure in place using hose clamp.
6. Lift container to the “Pour” Position, see Figure 27, being
careful to keep the vent in the handle above the liquid level
Figure 27.
SERVICE
The installer may be able to observe and correct certain problems
which may arise when the unit is put into operation. HOWEVER,
it is recommended that only a qualified service agency, using
appropriate test equipment, be allowed to service the heater.
System Diagnostics
Your water heater is equipped with an ignition control that
incorporates a diagnostic system to assist in troubleshooting the
water heater. The indicator codes on the ignition module are as
follows:
As preliminary step, check wiring against diagram, check for
grounded, broken or loose wires. Check all wire ends to be sure
that they are making good contact.
Table 9.
Ignition Control System
2 FLASHES
Flame sensed without call for heat
Before calling your qualified service agency, the following
checklist should be examined to eliminate obvious problems
from those requiring replacement or servicing.
3 FLASHES
Ignition lockout
Steady On
• Check that “main gas shutoff valve” is fully open and that gas
service has not been interrupted.
Internal control failure
If an internal control failure is indicated, replace the ignition
control.
• Check electrical supply to the water heater for possible blown
(or tripped) fusing or power interruption. Also check the 3 amp
fuse on the front of the digital thermostat (Fig. 2).
Use
this
diagnostic
system
in
conjunction
with
“Troubleshooting” and the “SEQUENCE OF OPERATION”
to troubleshoot the water heater.
• Is the water temperature in tank below the thermostat dial
setting on the water heater thermostat (calling for heat)?
Electrical Servicing
• It is possible that the high limit (E.C.O.) has functioned to shut
off the water heater. See page 7 - High Limit Switch for reset
procedure. Contact your service agent if limit continues to
function to shut off water heater.
Label all wires prior to disconnection when servicing controls.
Wiring errors can cause improper and dangerous operation.
Verify proper operation after servicing.
31
For Your Information
Contact the local water heater supplier or service agency for
further information concerning an Anode Replacement Kit and
this chlorination treatment.
Start Up Conditions
Smoke/Odor
It is not uncommon to experience a small amount of smoke and
odor during the initial start-up. This is due to burning off of oil
from metal parts, and will disappear in a short while.
If hot water odor persists after anode replacement and chlorination
treatment, we can only suggest that chlorination or aeration of
the water supply be considered to eliminate the water problem.
Do not remove the anode leaving the tank unprotected. By doing
so, all warranty on the water heater tank is voided.
Strange Sounds
Possible noises due to expansion and contraction of some metal
parts during periods of heat-up and cool-down do not necessarily
represent harmful or dangerous conditions.
“AIR” IN HOT WATER FAUCETS
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 that the hot water
faucet located farthest away from the water heater be opened
for several minutes 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.
Condensation causes sizzling and popping within the burner area
during heating and cooling periods and should be considered
normal.
Operational Conditions
Hot Water Odor
In each water heater there is installed at least one anode rod
for corrosion protection of the tank. Certain water conditions
will cause a reaction between this rod and the water. The most
common complaint associated with the anode rod is one of a
“rotten egg smell” in the hot water. The smell is a result of four
factors which must all be present for the odor to develop:
a. A concentration of sulfate in the supply water.
HIGH WATER TEMPERATURE SHUT OFF SYSTEM
This water heater is equipped with a manual reset type high
limit (Energy Cutout) switch. The high limit switch interrupts
the main burner gas flow should water temperature reach
203°F (95°C).
b. Little or no dissolved oxygen in the water.
c. A sulfate reducing bacteria which has accumulated within the
water heater (this harmless bacteria is nontoxic to humans).
d. An excess of active hydrogen in the tank. This is caused by
the corrosion protective action of the anode.
In the event of high limit switch operation, the water heater
cannot be restarted unless the water temperature is reduced to
approximately 120°F (49°C). The high limit reset button on the
front of the thermostat then needs to be depressed. See Figure 2
for the location of the reset button.
Hot water odor may be eliminated or reduced in some water
heater models by replacing the anode(s) with one of less active
material, and then chlorinating the water heater tank and all
water lines.

Limited Warranty
Limited
Warranty
American Water Heater, the warrantor, extends the following LIMITED WARRANTY to the owner of this water heater.
1.THE TANK
If the glass-lined tank in this water heater shall prove upon examination by the warrantor to have leaked due to natural corrosion from potable water
therein, during the first THREE years after initial installation, the warrantor will supply a replacement tank less burner and controls or a complete
new American water heater of equivalent size and current model at the warrantor’s option. Some government agencies are requiring energy efficient
standards for water heaters. In the event regulations prohibit sale of a model of equivalent size and construction, American will provide a model which
complies with the regulations of your area, in which case the consumer will be charged the difference in price between the like replacement and the
energy efficient model required. The warranty on the replacement water heater will be limited to the unexpired term of the original warranty.
2.ALL OTHER PARTS
If within ONE year after initial installation of this water heater, any part or portion shall prove upon examination by the warrantor to be defective in
material or workmanship, the warrantor will repair or replace such part or portion at its option.
3.CONDITIONS AND EXCEPTIONS
This warranty shall apply only when the water heater is installed in accordance with local plumbing and building codes, ordinances and regulations,
the printed instructions provided with it and good industry practices. In addition, a temperature and pressure relief valve, certified by CSA and
approved by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, must have been installed.
a.This warranty shall apply only when the water heater is:
(1) owned by the original purchaser;
(2) used at temperatures not exceeding the maximum setting of its thermostat;
(3) used at water pressure not exceeding the working pressure shown on the heater;
(4) used when operated free of the damaging effects of uncontrolled water hammer;
(5) used when filled with potable water, free to circulate at all times;
(6) used in a non-corrosive and non-contaminated atmosphere;
(7) used with factory approved anode(s) installed;
(8) in its original installation location;
(9) in the United States, its territories or possessions, and Canada;
(10) sized in accordance with proper sizing techniques for commercial water heaters;
(11) bearing a rating plate which has not been altered, defaced or removed except as required by the warrantor;
(12) fired at the factory rated input using the fuel stated on the rating plate;
(13) maintained in accordance with the instructions printed in the manual included with the water heater.
b.Any accident to the water heater, any misuse, abuse (including freezing) or alteration of it, any operation of it in a modified form, or any attempt
to repair tank leaks will void this warranty.
c.This warranty is void if a device acting as a backflow prevention device (check valves etc.) is installed in the cold water supply the heater is
connected to, unless an effective method of controlling thermal expansion is also installed at the heater(s) and operational at all times.
The temperature and pressure relief valve installed on the heater is not an acceptable method.
4.SERVICE AND REPAIR EXPENSES
Under the limited warranty the warrantor will provide only a replacement water heater or part thereof. The owner is responsible for all other costs.
Such costs may include but are not limited to:
a. Labor charges for service removal, repair or reinstallation of the water heater or any component part;
b. Shipping, delivery, handling, and administrative charges for forwarding the new heater or replacement part from the nearest distributor and returning
the claimed defective heater or part to such distributor.
c. All cost necessary or incidental for any material and/or permits required for installation of the replacement.
5.LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES
Implied warranties, including the warranty of merchantability imposed on the sale of this heater under state law are limited to one (1) year duration for
the heater or any of its parts. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
6.CLAIM PROCEDURE
Any claim under the warranty should be initiated with the dealer who sold the water heater, or with any other dealer handling the warrantor’s
products. If this is not practicable, the owner should contact:
American Water Heater
Product Service and Support
PO Box 1597, 500 Princeton Road
Johnson City, TN 37065
a. The warrantor will only honor replacement with identical or similar water heater or parts thereof which are manufactured or distributed by the warrantor.
b. Dealer replacements are made subject to in-warranty validation by warrantor.
7.DISCLAIMERS
NO OTHER EXPRESS WARRANTY HAS BEEN OR WILL BE MADE IN BEHALF OF THE WARRANTOR WITH RESPECT TO THE
MERCHANTABILITY OF THE HEATER OR THE INSTALLATION, OPERATION, REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE WATER HEATER. THE
WARRANTOR SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR WATER DAMAGE, LOSS OF USE OF THE UNIT, INCONVENIENCE, LOSS OR DAMAGE
TO PERSONAL PROPERTY OR OTHER CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGE. THE WARRANTOR SHALL NOT BE LIABLE BY VIRTUE OF THIS
WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE FOR DAMAGE TO ANY PERSONS OR PROPERTY, WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT, AND WHETHER ARISING
IN CONTRACT OR TORT.
a. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of the incidental or consequential damage, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
b. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
Fill in the following for your own reference. Keep it. Registration is not a condition of warranty. The model and serial number are found on the heater’s rating plate.
