WELCOME TO OUR VALUED CUSTOMER
You are now the owner of a Slant/Fin Victory II
gas-fired boiler, another quality heating product
designed and manufactured by an industry leader,
to provide your family with many years of reliable
comfort and trouble-free performance.
The care and maintenance of your new boiler is
important to prevent a hazardous condition which
might result from lack of proper servicing.
Therefore, you should perform regular “owner”
inspections as described in this manual (and report
any concerns to a qualified service technician) as
well as have your boiler serviced by a qualified
service technician at least once a year, preferably
before the beginning of each heating season.
LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS
Locate, read and then follow the procedures on the
lighting instructions label attached to the boiler. For
reference, we have reproduced those instructions
in this manual.
DO NOT use this boiler if any part has been
underwater. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the boiler and to
replace any part of the control system and
any gas control which has been underwater.
WARNING
Should overheating occur or the gas
supply fail to shut off, DO NOT turn off
or disconnect the electric supply to the
circulator pump. Instead, shut off the
gas supply at a location EXTERNAL to
the appliance.
WARNING
SLANT/FIN DOES NOT PERMIT THE USE OF VENT
DAMPERS ON VICTORY II SERIES BOILERS.
OTHER DAMPERS OR DEVICES WITH SIMILAR
PURPOSE ARE NOT PERMITTED.
Keep the boiler area clean and free of all materials that can burn.
NEVER close or reduce openings that supply air for the boiler fire and for ventilation.

INSPECTION
Your boiler and heating system will last an indefinitely
long time at full efficiency, if it is inspected regularly
and is kept in good repair and adjustment. You, the
user, should make regular inspections, and report any
problems to your service agency. At regular intervals,
you should have that agency inspect the system, clean
the boiler and make repair adjustments as necessary.
What you and the service agency should do is listed
below. Contact your gas supplier for a list of qualified
service and repair agencies.
USER INSPECTION
The user should make the following inspections at
least once each month during the heating season and
once just before cold weather starts:
1. Venting system inspection
A. Vertical venting inspection
All Victory II boilers may be vented through the
roof (see Figure 2) or vertically utilizing an existing chimney as a chase (see Figure 3). In all
cases a 3" diameter AL29-4C* stainless steel
venting material MUST be used.
Inspect the system regularly for condensation,
corrosion and/or physical damage. A qualified
professional should service the boiler annually
and include such an inspection at that time. The
homeowner should look over the system monthly for damage, water stains, any signs of rust,
other corrosion or separation of the flue (vent)
and fittings.
Figure 2. Vertical venting through the roof
Should an inspection turn up signs of condensation, corrosion or damage, the boiler should be
shut down immediately and the condition should
be corrected by a qualified professional.
B. Chimney or Type “B” venting inspection
Only models VHS-90, VHS-120, VHS-150 and
VHS-180 may be vented directly into a chimney
with 5, 6, or 7 inch diameter standard metal smoke
pipe (galvanized). See Figure 4. Make sure pipe
joints are snug and are fastened with screws. The
chimney joint should be filled with cement to prevent leakage. There should be no visible signs of
rust or salts from water evaporation.

2. Condensation drain trap inspection
Check condensation drain trap to be full of water. Check
for deterioration of the tubing. Check that trap is not
plugged. DO NOT operate the boiler without filling the
trap with water to prevent flue gas discharge into space.
The drain should extend to a floor drain or to a container which may require emptying periodically.
3. Piping inspection
Look at all water piping. There should be no leaks or
signs of leaks at any pipe joints or around the boiler.
4. System water pressure inspection
The temperature and pressure gauge indicates the
pressure in the boiler at each water temperature. For
most installations, it should indicate about 12 to 15 psi
pressure when temperature is about 70 to 100° F and
from 15 psi to 25 psi when temperature is up to 240° F.
FOR YOUR SYSTEM, there is one correct pressure for
each temperature. ASK YOUR INSTALLER OR SERVICEPERSON TO EXPLAIN AND SHOW YOU. Learn
what normal pressures to look for. If pressure decreases from normal, your system is losing water. If pressure
rises from normal, the relief valve will open to relieve
the pressure. Call your service organization if pressures
are higher or lower than normal, and if the relief valve
spills water. Repair or adjustment is needed.
5. Unusual noise
Stand near the boiler and look and listen. As the burners start and shut off, there should be no unusual noise.
No fire should be visible coming out from the front of
the boiler when the burners start or run.
6. Boiler room air supply inspection
Ample air is required for your boiler to burn fuel cleanly
and safely. Check to make sure all air vents are open
and free of obstruction. Air needs are greatest in cold
weather.
WARNING: The flow of combustion and ventilating air
to the boiler should not be obstructed.
WARNING: If you find any problem during your
inspection, call for service immediately.

FLAME ROLL-OUT SAFETY SHUT-OFF SWITCH
All Victory II boilers are equipped with a single use
flame roll-out safety shut-off switch. It will shut off main
gas burners in the event the flow of combustion products through the boiler flue passages are reduced. If this
safety switch has actuated to shut off the main burners,
DO NOT attempt to place the boiler in operation, but
contact a qualified service agency.
SAFETY AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Follow the lighting instructions in this manual. These
instructions are also attached to the boiler.
