Principle of Operation:
When a hot water faucet is opened, the flow of water through
the heater causes the gas valve to open. At the same time
a microswitch is activated which sends a spark to the pilot.
The flame sensor confirms that the pilot has been lighted
and allows the first two burners to ignite. The flame sensor
confirms correct activation and all burners ignite. The pilot
goes out. The power exhaust system runs as long as the
burners are on. The heat exchanger coils absorb the heat
generated by the burners and transfer heat to the water.
When the hot water faucet is shut off, the gas valve
automatically closes and the burners turn off, followed
immediately by the exhaust system. Your hot water faucet
is an ignition key to turn on the water heater, giving you
control over your hot water energy use. Every time you turn
off your hot water faucet, the energy consumption for hot
water returns to zero.

GENERAL RULES TO FOLLOW
FOR SAFE OPERATION
1. You should follow these instructions when you install
your heater. In the United States: The installation must
conform with local codes or, in the absence of local codes,
the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54.
In Canada: The Installation should conform with CGA
B149.(1,2) INSTALLATION CODES and /or local installation
codes.
2. Carefully plan where you install the heater. Correct
combustion air supply and flue pipe installation are very
important. If not installed correctly, fatal accidents can be
caused by lack of air, carbon monoxide poisoning or fire.
3. The place where you install the heater must have
enough ventilation. The National Fire Codes do not
allow gas fired water heater installation in bathrooms,
bedrooms or any occupied rooms normally kept
closed. See the section below on locating the heater.
4. You must install your heater so that the venting complies
with all requirements. Venting must comply with all
requirements for Category III gas appliances. See section
on Venting the Heater, pages 6 and 7.
5. The appliance must be disconnected from the gas supply
piping system during any pressure testing at pressures in
excess of 1/2 Psig (3.5 kPa).
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping
during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system
at test pressures in excess of 1/2 Psig (3.5Kpa). The
appliance and its gas connection must be leak tested before
placing the appliance in operation.
6. Keep water heater area clear and free from combustibles
and flammable liquids. Do not locate the heater over any
material that might burn. Do not install heater over carpeting.
7. Correct gas pressure is critical for the optimum
operation of this heater (see specifications on page 2 and
chart on page 9). Gas piping must be sized to provide the
required pressure at the maximum output of the heater.
Check with your local gas supplier, and see the section on
connecting the gas supply.
8. Should overheating occur or the gas supply fail to shut
off, turn off the gas supply at the manual gas shut off valve
on the gas line.
9. 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 that has been under water.
The heater may still operate even when improperly vented.
It will, however, be less efficient and could eventually damage
the heater. It could even result in human sickness or death
due to oxygen deprivation and carbon monoxide poisoning.
Before installing the unit, be certain you have the correct
heater for your type of Gas – Propane or Natural Gas.
Identification labels are found on the shipping box, and on
the rating plate which is located on the right side panel of
the cover. Also, each burner orifice is stamped with a number
(79 for LPG and 120 for Natural Gas).
Follow the guidelines below:
1. National building codes require that you do not install
this appliance in bathrooms, bedrooms, unvented
closet or any occupied rooms normally kept closed.
2. Simultaneous operation of other appliances such as
exhaust fans, ventilation systems, clothes dryers, fireplaces
or wood stoves could create a vacuum effect in your home
which could cause dangerous combustion by-products to
spill back into your home rather than venting to the outside
through the flue. Confirm that your Aquastar is venting
properly when all these other appliances are running. See
page 8 to test venting performance.
Do not obstruct the flow of combustion air to the
appliance. This appliance is power vented and uses room
air. Note: Electrical power is required to operate the power
exhaust. Proper air supply to the appliance is essential.
If installed near a clothes dryer it is very important that the
dryer be properly vented. Failure to properly vent a dryer
could result in a gradual accumulation of lint on the water
heater fin coils and burners, leading to a dangerous
condition of vent blockage and poor, unsafe combustion.
3. Your hot water lines should be kept short to save energy.
It is always best to have hot water lines insulated.
WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL IN AN AREA
WHERE IT COULD FREEZE. This heater is neither
designed for nor approved for outside installation.
Drain the heater entirely if freezing temperatures are
anticipated in area where heater is installed by
disconnecting both the inlet and outlet elbow connections
at the rear of heater. Additionally, remove the drain plug
under the water valve. See Fig 0.”
10.When installed, the appliance must be electrically
grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the absence
of local codes, in accordance with the National Electrical
Code ANSINFPA 70 and/or the CSA 22.1 Electrical Code.
PROPER LOCATION FOR INSTALLING
YOUR HEATER
Carefully select the location of your new heater. For your
safety and for proper heater operation, you must provide an
abundant supply of combustion air and a proper venting
installation.

Fig. 0 - Water heater drain plug
WARNING: Flammable materials, gasoline,
pressurized containers, or any other items or articles that
are potentially fire hazards must NOT be placed on or
adjacent to the heater. The appliance area must be kept
free of all combustible materials, gasoline and other
flammable vapors and liquids.
COMBUSTION AIR REQUIREMENTS
The AquaStar water heater holds cold water in its copper
heat exchanger and brass water valve when not in use.
Because of this, any cold air that comes in through the
unit’s vent pipe is capable of freezing these components.
This Installation Manual specifies the vent length
requirements and the amount of combustion air required
for this unit. When all requirements are followed, the unit
will operate properly and safely. However, there may still
be a risk of freezing due to negative draft if all the combustion
appliances in the area are not being supplied with a sufficient
amount of make-up air. A wood stove or furnace can rob the
make-up air in the AquaStar’s vent pipe, leaving the cold
infiltrating air capable of freezing the cold water in the
AquaStar heat exchanger. To prevent this the FX Hood
vent terminator, which should have been acquired separately
with the water heater, needs to be installed on the end of
the horizontal vent run (see page 7). The FX Hood is an
approved vent terminator for the Aquastar 125FX and has a
built in back draft flapper.
Observe the following instructions concerning combustion
air.
Appliances located in unconfined spaces:
a) An unconfined space is one whose volume is greater
than 50 cubic feet per 1000 Btu per hour of the combined
rating of all appliances installed in the space. That would
be 6500 cubic feet for the AquaStar 130B alone.
b) In unconfined spaces in buildings of conventional frame,
masonry, or metal construction, infiltration is normally
adequate to provide air for combustion, ventilation, and
dilution of flue gasses.
Appliances located in confined spaces: The confined space
must be provided with two permanent openings, one
commencing within 12 inches of the top and one
commencing within 12 inches of the bottom of the
enclosure. Each opening must have a minimum free area
of one square inch per:
— 1000 Btu/hr if all air is taken from inside the building.
— 2000 Btu/hr if all air is taken from the outside by horizontal
ducts.
— 4000 Btu/hr if all air is taken from the outside by direct
openings or vertical ducts.
Or the confined space must be provided with one permanent
opening or duct that is within 12 inches of the ceiling of the
enclosure. This opening must have a minimum free area of
one square inch per:
— 3000 Btu/hr if all air is taken from the outside by a direct
opening or vertical duct.
Louvers, grills and screens have a blocking effect. If the
effective free area is not known, assume it is 20 % to 25%
of the total opening for wood louvers and 60 % to 75% for
metal louvers. Refer to the National Fuel Gas Code for
complete information. In buildings of tight construction all
air should be taken from outside.
This product is not approved for manufactured homes
(mobile home), recreational vehicles (RV) or boats.
Reference ANSI Z21.10.3.
This product is neither designed or approved for
outside installations.
CLEARANCES
The Aquastar 125FX is design certified for installation on a
combustible wall and for installation in an alcove or closet
with the minimum clearances to combustible and non combustible construction listed below
A. Top 12 inches (305 mm)*
B. Front 4 inches (102 mm)
C. Back 0 inches
D. Sides 4 inch (102mm)
E. Bottom 12 inches (305 mm)*
* Some local codes require 18” in garage installations.
Clearance from vent pipes is dependent upon the clearance
rating of the venting material used. Single wall flue pipe is
approved for 3” clearance for this appliance.
Note: this clearance can be reduced if combustible material
are protected as per table VI of the National Fuel Gas Code.
MOUNTING INSTALLATION
The Aquastar 125FX is design certified for mounting on a
wall.
Secure the two L shaped hooks, which are provided with
heater, to a wall surface. Place them 13 ¼” apart as shown
in Fig 2.
Do not install this appliance on a carpeted wall or over floor
covering which is combustible, such as carpet. The heater
must be mounted on a wall using appropriate anchoring
materials. If wall is a stud wall sheathed with plasterboard,
it is recommended that support board(s) either 1x4’s or 1/
2" (minimum) plywood first be attached across a pair of
studs and then the heater should be attached to the support
boards. See Fig 2.
In earthquake-prone zones, CEC recommends that
installers use a large washer and lag screw through the
existing holes used to hang the heater to affix the upper
third of the heater to the mounting board. To affix the lower
third of the heater, CEC recommends that two new holes
be drilled in the heater’s frame, each one 16 inches below
the top two holes, and that washers and lag screws be
used to secure the lower portion of the heater to a spacing
board.
Expansion and contraction of piping due to changing water
temperature in the pipes imparts movement to the heater
which, if mounted directly to a brittle, friable board, such
as plasterboard, can cause failure of mounting.

VENTING
WARNING: Do not reduce the vent pipe size.
This appliance must be vented horizontally to the outside
with sealed single wall vent pipe following all local ordinances
and specifications for installing a power vented Category III
appliance. The vent system must be installed by a qualified
installer in accordance with all applicable local gas codes.
The venting system must be designed and constructed so
as to develop a positive flow adequate to remove flue gases
to the outdoors.
Minimum vent size diameter must be 4”. The appliance
must be located as close as practicable to a vent terminal.
Maximum vent length is 15 feet (4.6m) with two 90degree elbows. This unit may be directly connected to
an approved vent termination with a 90-degree elbow. The
vent pipe connections must be secured to each other with
a minimum of 4 sheet metal screws per connection, and
all seams must be sealed with an approved high temperature
silicone sealant and aluminum duct tape. The vent system
must be gas tight. See Fig 4 for suggested venting
installation diagrams.
For best results, the horizontal vent system should be as
short and straight as possible. Vent pipe must be single
wall galvanized steel or stainless steel vent pipe. The
maximum horizontal length of vent pipe is 15 feet. 2
elbows are allowable within this maximum vent
length. For each additional elbow deduct 5 feet from
maximum vent length. Any vertical portion of the vent
pipe that is part of the horizontal vent system must be
considered part of the allowable 15 foot maximum.
When the horizontal vent run exceeds 5 feet the following
criteria must be observed:
- Support the vent run at 4-foot intervals with overhead
hangers.
- Horizontal sections of vent connectors must rise ¼”
for every foot of horizontal length. Any vent section
greater than 45 degrees from vertical is considered
horizontal.
Note: Single wall vent pipe cannot be used in any
concealed locations and should not be used in any unheated
space without an insulated chase. Unsealed 5” B-Vent may
be used as a chase for straight lengths (no elbows) of 4”
single wall vent pipe. All connections of the 4” single wall
vent within the 5” B-Vent must be properly sealed. A 1”
clearance is required from the B-Vent pipe to combustibles.
CAUTION: Aquastar power vent system must be installed
by a qualified agency in accordance with these instructions.
If improperly installed a hazardous condition such as an
explosion or Carbon Monoxide poisoning could result.
Controlled Energy Corporation will not be responsible for
improperly installed appliances.
Freeze Warning:
As mentioned on Page 5, negative air pressure in cold
climates will cause a reverse airflow in the vent system
that can freeze and damage the Aquastar heat exchanger
when not in use. To prevent this the FX Hood vent
terminator, which should have been acquired separately
with the water heater, needs to be installed on the end of
the horizontal vent run (see page 7). The FX Hood is an
approved vent terminator for the Aquastar 125FX and has a
built in back draft flapper.
Plan the vent system so that code and manufacturer’s
clearances are maintained.
The minimum clearance from the top of the heater is 12
inches. Single wall vent pipe requires a 3-inch clearance
from combustibles. In all cases, follow local codes:
- In Canada, CAN/CGA-B149 Installation Code for detailed
requirements.
- In USA, ANSI Z223.1 – latest edition, National Fuel Gas
Code for detailed.
Spill Switch Safety:
The 125FX is equipped with a Spill Switch; it’s mounted on
the left side of the draft diverter (Flue gas safety device - #9
on page 19). Before leaving the installation site verify proper
Spill Switch operation by temporarily blocking termination
outlet. The unit will shut down when flue gases are blocked.
You must reset the electrical power to the heater after this
safety test has been conducted, otherwise the unit will not
operate.

It is strongly recommended that the natural gas pipe line
be 3/4" for the entire distance. If the maximum length is
above 40 feet, use 1" line. Flexible tubing is NOT
recommended, but if it is to be used, oversize it. With LP
gas installation, the recommended sizes are 5/8" up to a
maximum of 20 feet distance, 3/4" up to 50 ft distance and
7/8" up to 100 feet.
National Fuel Gas Code requires that a sediment trap (drip
leg) be installed on gas appliances. The drip leg must be
accessible and not subject to freezing conditions. Install in
accordance with the recommendations of the gas supplier.
NOTE: The AquaStar 125FX is supplied with a gas
pressure regulator that must be installed on the heater
before attaching the gas supply line. See figure 6.
Failure to install the gas regulator as shown in figure
6 will be a violation of CSA certification of the unit.
The regulator supplied with the heater is preset for
the gas shown on the rating plate to the correct
pressure. It is an appliance level regulator designed
for (low inlet) pressure (less than 1/2 Psig or 15” W.C.)
DO NOT connect to an unregulated or high pressure
propane line or to a high pressure commercial natural
gas line.

The pressure regulator provided with the heater is adjusted
to deliver the proper gas pressure (as indicated on the
rating plate and in the manual for altitude up to 2000 feet
(660 meters) above sea level. On appliances being installed
above 2000 ft (660 meters) elevation, the inlet gas pressure
should be set at installation to the value shown below.
NOTE: The gas pressures specified below refer to
pressures taken at the test pressure nipple on the gas
inlet pipe just above the regulator (See Fig 6). These
readings should be taken while the heater is operating
at full input — i.e. maximum water flow with the
temperature dial selector turned all the way
clockwise.
WARNING: The heater must be disconnected from
the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing
of that system at test pressures in excess of .5 psig.
The water heater must be isolated from the gas supply
piping system by closing the manual shutoff valve during
any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at
test pressures equal to or greater than .5 psig.
The water heater, including the pressure regulator provided
with it, must not be operated at gas supply pressures in
excess of .5 psig. If overpressure has occurred, such as
through improper testing of the gas lines or malfunction of
the supply system, the gas valve and regulator must be
checked for safe operation.
When your connections are made, check for gas leaks at
all joints (not just the ones you made). Apply some soapy
water to all gas fittings and gas valve. Soap bubbles are
a sign of a leak.
NOTE: Do not apply soap solution to pilot filter screen or
pilot orifice area. If you have a leak, shut off the gas. After
verifying that required gaskets are in place, tighten
appropriate fittings to stop leak. Turn the gas on and check
again with a soapy solution. Never test for gas leaks using
a match or flame.
WATER CONNECTIONS
When facing the heater, the cold water inlet is on your right
and the hot water outlet is on your left.
Although water piping throughout your structure may be
other than copper, CEC recommends that copper piping
be used for at least three feet before and after the heater
(follow local codes if more stringent). Keep water inlet pipe
to no less than 1/2 inch diameter to allow the full flow
capacity. Remember that water pressure must be sufficient
to activate the heater when drawing hot water from the top
floor. If the hot and cold connections to the heater are
reversed, the heater will not function. The AquaStar 125FX
is provided with two S-bend water connection adapters that
must be connected to the inlet and outlet fittings of the
water valve as shown in Figs 7 and 8. Galvanized or brass
90 degree elbows work best when connected to the S
fittings. These fittings seal to the water valve by means of a
union connection with a washer type gasket at the joint.
No pipe dope or thread tape is to be used at these joints.
The Pressure Relief Valve (PRV) should only be fitted to
the hot water line. Be certain there are no loose particles
or dirt in the piping. Blow out or flush the lines before
connecting to the AquaStar. Full port ball valves should be
installed on both the cold water feed line and the hot water
outlet line to facilitate servicing the heater.
For installation on a private well system, be sure that the
minimum water pressure is set between 30 and 50 psi.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
WARNING: This heater must be electrically grounded in accordance with the most recent edition of the National
Electrical Code, NFPA 70. In Canada, all electrical wiring to the heater should be in accordance with local codes and the
Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1 Part 1. Do not rely on the gas or water piping to ground the metal parts of the
heater.
CAUTION: Label all wires prior to disconnection when servicing controls. Wiring error can cause improper and dangerous
operation. Verify proper operation after servicing.
The AquaStar 125FX requires an electrical power supply from 120VAC 60Hz circuit and must be properly grounded.
- A means for switching off the 120 VAC power supply must be provided.

is now ready to operate.
FOR YOUR SAFETY READ BEFORE
OPERATING YOUR HOT WATER HEATER
Warning: If you do not follow these instructions
exactly, a fire or explosion may result causing property
damage, personal injury or loss of life.
A. This appliance is equipped with electronic ignition for
lighting the pilot and main burners. When turning the heater
on, follow these instructions exactly.
B. Before operating the unit, set the On/Off switch to the
On (I) position. The On/Off switch is located behind the
flip-down coverplate on the front panel strip. Smell all around
the appliance area for gas. Be sure to smell next to the

on the floor.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS
- Do not try to light any appliance.
- Do not touch any electric switch; do not use any phone
in your building.
- Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s
phone. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.
- If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire
department.
C. Use only your hand to push in the on/off control button.
Never use tools. Follow these instructions exactly. If control
button is jammed, close the gas supply and call a qualified
service technician. Attempted forceful repair may result in
a fire or explosion.
D. 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.
LIGHTING AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1. STOP! Read the safety information on the front panel of
the heater.
2. The gas valve must be turned off by putting the On/Off
switch to position “O” (see fig. 12). Wait five (5) minutes
to clear out any gas. If you smell gas, STOP! Follow “B”
in the safety information above. If you don’t smell gas,
go to next step.
3. This water heater is equipped with a safety pilot burner
and an automatic ignition control system.
4. Set the ON/OFF switch (flip down cover plate on front
panel strip) marked I/O to the I position. In this position
the water heater is ready to use.
5. Verify that the power supply to the appliance is turned
on.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Fig. 11 - Principles of Operation
SETTING THE WATER TEMPERATURE
The AquaStar 125FX LP and 125FX NG water heaters have
a gas control that modulates burner input in response to
flow. Its purpose is to ensure that the hot water temperature
will remain steady, although the demand for water flow
might vary (down to 1/2 gal/minute). To adjust the
temperature on your AquaStar, turn on a hot water faucet
to its maximum flow. At the AquaStar, turn the large knob
located beneath the main gas controls on the front of the
heater all the way to the right (clockwise). See Fig 12. This
will produce a temperature rise of approximately 90°F at
flow rates between .5 and 2.0 gallons per minute. Given
that average incoming water temperatures are 50°F, this
heater will produce approximately 140°F water at these
flow rates. Turning the dial all the way to the left
(counterclockwise) will produce a temperature rise of
approximately 45°F for flow rates between 1.0 and 4.0
gallons per minute. This will result in a higher flow rate, but
at cooler temperatures. Turning the dial to locations in
between will give various temperatures between 140° and
95°F at various flow rates between 2.0 and 4.0 gallons per
minute. The position you select on the temperature selector
dial will depend on the temperature of the incoming water
(50°F is average in the U.S.). In warm weather regions where
the incoming cold water is generally warmer, or during the
hot weather months in some other areas a midway setting
on the temperature selector knob will produce a
temperature rise of about 70°F, giving an output of
approximately 120°F. At this setting, if it is still necessary,
one could mix a small amount of cold water in a shower
and have a comfortable shower at about 3 gallons/minute.
During the colder months, or in cold climate areas, it might
be necessary to set the control all the way clockwise to
the right for maximum temperature rise.
Never supply the AquaStar 125FX with preheated water,
such as in a solar installation: the unit will overheat. It will
then shut off on safety when the outlet temperature reaches
185°F. You must purchase a solar model AquaStar125 B
LPS or 125 B NGS if you plan to use preheated water with
your system.
MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE
Approximately once a year, the AquaStar should be checked
and cleaned. The following operations should be performed
by a qualified service person:
Vent System: Should be checked annually. Clean and repair
as needed.
Water Valve: (Part # 8707002459): The water valve on
this heater should be serviced periodically, every 3-5 years
is recommended. The frequency will depend on the mineral
content of the water and conditions of use or whenever
signs of corrosion appear at the gas and water valve joint.
Pilot Flame: The pilot flame should burn with a clean,
sharp, blue flame and should resemble the diagram in Fig.
13. If the flame is soft and yellow, the pilot burner orifice
may need to be cleaned or replaced. The pilot flame should
be approximately 2 inches long, extending past the flame
sensor. If the flame is too small, it will not reach the flame
sensor and the burners will not come on.

To clean the pilot burner and/or the pilot orifice: Turn
off the gas at the unit (Position ‘O’). Remove the cover of
the heater. To do so, pull off the temperature knob and
unscrew and remove the temperature knob collar. Pull main
cover out toward you and lift up and out. The pilot orifices
should also be cleaned or replaced. Do not enlarge the
orifice (see fig. 14). Do not use any wire or sharp object
to clean orifices. Natural gas orifices are large enough that
you can usually clean them by blowing through them. LP
orifices, on the other hand, are too small to clean and should
be replaced. See #3 in Trouble Shooting Section. To access
the pilot orifice, remove 2 screws holding pilot assembly in
place. Then loosen the compression fitting and lift up pilot
burner to expose pilot orifice.
13
3. Water flow is not sufficient to activate heater.
Water flow rate at faucet is below minimum flow needed to
activate heater. When temperature adjustment knob is
turned all the way clockwise, the AquaStar model 125FX
requires 1/2 gallon per minute flow to activate the heater.
As a reference, this is a flow which would fill a quart jar in
30 seconds. If the temperature adjustment knob is turned
fully counterclockwise, a flow rate of 1.1 gallons/minute is
required to activate the heater.
4. Bad fuse
Check the viability of the fuse (see Fig 10 (#4) for location
of fuse). Replace if necessary.
PILOT ORIFICE
Fig. 14 - Pilot burner with pilot orifice
Main Burner Flames: The main burner flames should be
blue, with a more intense blue cone in the center core.
Yellow flames could be a sign of wrong size gas orifices or
dirty burners, or a blockage on the heat exchangers fins.
If some burners have yellow flames while others have good
flames, it is likely that dust, lint or spider webs have partially
clogged the burner venturis. To clean the burners, contact
a gas service person.
Mineral Scale Build-up: AquaStars, when operated at
lower temperature settings, do not accumulate mineral
buildup. If however, the heater is used at the higher
temperature settings and the water has a high mineral
content, periodic descaling may be necessary. The heating
coils should be flushed with a descaling solution. Consult
your dealer or Controlled Energy for instructions.
5. Water inlet filter is clogged
Water flow is restricted, preventing flow needed to activate
heater. Clean water inlet filter screen.
6. Cross over in water lines
To confirm there is no cross-over in the plumbing, shut off
the cold water supply to the AquaStar water heater and
open a hot water faucet. There should not be any water
flowing at that faucet. Water running is a sign of a plumbing
cross-over. Consult your plumber.
7. Microswitch needs to be adjusted or replaced.
If you do not hear a click when a tap is opened, the
microswitch needs to be adjusted. See Fig. 16 (#1) for
location and see Fig. 15 for adjustment. The microswitch
may need to be replaced.
TROUBLE SHOOTING
Problems are stated in upper case, bold face. Most common
causes for the problems follow in order of likelihood. The
suggested solutions require that the cover be taken off. To
do this, pull off the temperature knob and unscrew and
remove the temperature knob collar. Pull main cover out
toward you and lift up and out.
NO SPARK AT THE PILOT
1. On/Off switch is not ”On” (Position I).
The On/Off switch is located behind the flipdown cover plate
on the front panel strip. See fig. 11.
2. Bad electrical connections.
Be certain that all electrical connections are clean, tight,
and free of any moisture.

Introduction
The AquaStar 125FX pilot and burners are ignited by a
water flow valve. Numerous water related problems can
cause this water valve to malfunction such as: Insufficient
water flow volume to activate the burners at its minimum
flow requirement; Dirt in the water flow valve causing it to
malfunction; Sediment build-up in faucet aerators, or shower
heads; Uneven pressures between cold and hot with single
lever faucets; Plumbing cross overs. These water flow
related problems can cause the heater to deliver less than
its full output, or to fail to ignite or to shut down completely.

8. Cold incoming water connection made to wrong
side of heater
Make sure cold water inlet connection is on the right side
when you are facing the AquaStar.
9. Water valve parts may be dirty or components
damaged
First check that venturi is free of dirt particles. Water valve
and component parts must be totally free of dirt.
Mineral deposits can eventually (3-5 years in hard water
areas) corrode the water valve parts to a point where they
will need replacing. Any sign of moisture at the bleed
hole is a sign that the water valve needs to be
replaced immediately.
10. Loose connection at the ECO
Ignition sparker will not operate if the electrical circuit is
interrupted. Check that the connections to the ECO are
secure and tighten if necessary.
11. Reset electrical power to heater
If resetting the electrical power corrected the symptom then
likely the unit’s Safety Spill switch (Flue gas safety device
- #9 on page 19) had tripped from a flue blockage during
the previous usage. Inadequate combustion air to the room
area can also cause the unit to improperly vent. Improper
venting or insufficient combustion air must be corrected.
Consult a licensed professional to inspect the installation.
SPARKS APPEAR AT PILOT WHEN HOT WATER TAP
IS TURNED ON, BUT PILOT AND BURNERS WILL NOT
IGNITE
1. Air in the Gas Line
Note: Normally this is a problem only at the time of initial
installation, after the pipes have been worked on, or after a
propane tank has been allowed to empty, or after the heater
has been shut down for a long time.
Bleed all the air trapped in the gas line by turning the hot
water faucet on and off until the air has been cleared from
the line.
2. No gas to the AquaStar
A. Gas cock on gas line may not be open
B. Gas regulator may be shut or damaged. Replace or
unjam the regulator. Note: The regulator furnished with
the heater is exclusively designed for low gas pressure
(less than ½ psig). Excessive pressure will lock it up.
Jamming usually happens when using propane gas if the
gas pressure between the gas tank and the water heater’s
gas regulator has not been reduced. See Page 2 for
recommended correct gas pressure. To unjam a regulator,
consult your gas supplier or call CEC.
3. Pilot orifice clogged or gas valve is dirty
Clogging of the pilot burner can be caused by dust in the
air or dirt in the gas. The pilot orifice or gas filter may need
to be cleaned or replaced. See Fig. 14.
4. Water valve assembly needs to be checked
If the pilot orifice is clean, the water valve assembly should
be checked. The adjustment screw on the water valve microswitch may not be tight enough (fig. 15). Remove central
cap beneath micro-switch assembly, carefully loosen the
adjustment screw until the pilot light ignites. At that point
retighten the screw one and a half turns. See Fig 15.
5. Pilot electrovalve switch may need to be replaced
(See Fig 10).
Call CEC.
6. Electronic Control Box may need to be replaced
(See Fig 10).
Call CEC.
PILOT SPARKS CONTINUOUSLY WITH NO WATER
RUNNING
1. Microswitch needs adjustment
If no water is running, but pilot electrode continuously
sparks, the microswitch screw to the water valve needs
adjustment. See Figure 15.
PILOT LIGHTS BUT BURNERS WILL NOT COME ON
1. Confirm the flame sensor is in its proper position.
(see Fig. 13).
2. Sensors for exhaust gases may be loose.
The burners will not come on if the powered fan exhaust is
not working. Check that the unit is plugged in and that the
sensors for the flue gases are secure.
3. Confirm the ECO connections are secure.
4. The Electronic Control Box (Fig 10) may need to be
replaced.
5. Burner electrovalve switch may need to be replaced
(see Fig. 10).
MAIN BURNERS GO OUT DURING HOT WATER USE
1. Deficient exhaustion of flue gases
Check that vent is correct and clear of any obstructions,
that sensors for flue gases are secure and that electrical
connection has been made. If the heater will not come back
on, it will be necessary to turn the electrical supply to
the heater off and then on again.
2. Flow rate diminished below activation rate
Be certain that water flow is not less than required amount
to activate heater.
3. Unbalanced pressure in the water lines.
The added restriction caused by the Aquastar in the hot
water system can result in uneven pressures between the
cold and the hot. In such cases when mixing cold water at
the tap, the lower hot water pressure may be overpowered
by a much higher cold water pressure, which may cause
the Aquastar burners to shut down. Make sure faucet
aerators or shower heads are free of minerals. Do not add
any flow restrictor to the shower head.
4. ECO (overheat sensor) tripped due to overheating
Do not feed preheated water to this water heater.
5. Minimum inlet pressure on well pressure tank is
inadequate
Check the inlet water pressure. On a private well, raise the
minimum pressure setting to 30 psi. Confirm that the
pressure tank is not water logged.
WATER IS TOO HOT
1. Temperature Selection too high
Turn the temperature adjustment knob counter-clockwise
(to the left) to lower the maximum water temperature.
Note: This will increase the activation flow rate.
15
2. Inlet water temperature is too warm or inlet water
is preheated
Decrease gas pressure. Note: Only the Model 125B S
AquaStar should be used if the inlet water is preheated.
3. Inlet filter screen is clogged, restricting flow
Remove screen and clean it.
WATER IS NOT HOT ENOUGH
1. Temperature selection is set too low.
Change the setting. Turn the temperature selector knob
clockwise (to the right). Note: this will decrease the
activation flow rate.
2. Water flow through the heater is higher than the
capacity of the AquaStar to heat it
Reduce the flow demand at the faucet. See flow rates at
specific temperatures on page 2.
3. Gas pressure is insufficient
It is extremely important for a tankless instantaneous
water heater to have the right size gas line to obtain
the correct gas pressure. See specifications on page 2.
Unlike storage tank water heaters, the burners of a tankless
water heater must be very powerful to heat water
instantaneously since they do this only at the time hot
water is actually being used. It is therefore imperative that
the gas pressure requirement be met exactly. Insufficient
gas pressure will directly affect the water temperature at
the time of usage. See page 2 for correct gas pressure
settings and see page 9 for proper gas line sizing.
4. Gas supply is insufficient
Make sure your main gas line is fully opened. If using LP
gas, be sure that the size of the propane tank is adequate
to supply the required gas pressure. See gas pipe sizing
chart on page 9.
5. Cold water is mixing with the hot water between
the AquaStar and the outlet
Compare water temperature at outlet of the AquaStar (hold
the AquaStar’s outlet pipe with your hand) and at the tap.
If these two are very different, check for mixing valve or
plumbing crossover (see “NO SPARK AT THE PILOT”
paragraph 4). Where automatic “anti-scald” valves are
required by code, lower the temperature setting on the
AquaStar as much as possible and balance the pressure
between cold and hot water after the AquaStar.
6. Parts in water flow valve are corroded so that the
gas passage is not fully opening.
Contact your service person or Controlled Energy.
HOT WATER TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATES
1. Unbalanced pressure in waterlines
The added restriction caused by the Aquastar in the hot
water system can result in uneven pressures between the
cold and the hot. In such cases when mixing cold water at
the tap, the lower hot water pressure may be overpowered
by a much higher cold water pressure, which may cause
the Aquastar burners to shut down. Make sure faucet
16
aerators or shower heads are free of minerals. Do not add
any flow restrictor to the shower head.
2. Cold water is mixing with the hot water between
the AquaStar and the outlet
See #4 under “NO SPARK AT THE PILOT”.
3. Inlet water pressure is erratic due to inadequate
supply water pressure or saturated pressure tank on
well system
Check the inlet water pressure. On a private well, raise
minimum pressure setting to 30 psi. Confirm that the
pressure tank is not water logged.
4. Gas pressure is too low
See page 2 for correct specifications.
EXHAUST FAN DOES NOT OPERATE
