Introduction
The brand name Continuum refers to “Endless Hot Water”. The new Continuum series has been
developed in response to the growing changes in the lifestyle of our customers, and the increasing
diversification and sophistication of demand in the marketplace.
The Continuum series offers reduced cost with advanced safety features, and an option to connect one,
two, or three remote temperature control pads. Residential units can use up to three optional keypads,
commercial units only allow one keypad per heater.
The Continuum REU-2532 series is delivered with the maximum hot water temperature output set at
120 °F without the remote control. When using controllers you can adjust your hot water output from 96
– 120 °F using the “BC” and “BSC” controllers. The “MC” control will allow water temperature
adjustments from 96 – 140 °F, and the “MCC” control used with the commercial unit, allows
adjustments from 96 - 180°F. .
About the Continuum
The front cover of each appliance in the new series is formed from 0.6 mm coated steel. Secured to the
main box assembly by (4) screws. Seals around the front cover prevent water from entering the
appliance.
Combustion air is drawn from outside the building, and combustion by-products discharge outside the
building through a coaxial flue system. The general layout of components is shown on page 16. All
components are supported within the box formed from 0.8 mm coated steel.
The heat exchanger occupies the top section of the casing, and the burner is situated in a chamber
formed from 0.8 mm aluminized steel, attached to the bottom of the heat exchanger. The copper tubing
material used in the heat exchanger consist of, Phosphorus Dioxide Copper, (C1220P). The material
used to solder the heat exchanger pipes is, Phosphorus Bronze Brazing, (main components are P, Ag,
and Cu) (JIS No. BcuP-2). None of these materials contain lead.
The air for combustion is supplied by a fan, which is connected to the burner box by a duct at the left
side of the appliance, directly under the burner.
Gas and water controls are situated at the bottom right of the appliance, directly under the manifold. The
“O”ring material on the water and gas connections are made from EPDM, (Ethylene Propylene Diene)
rubber.
The burner assembly is made up of (16) identical stainless steel Bunsen burners, secured by an
aluminized steel framework. Each burner is capable of handling up to 11,250 BTU’s. An aluminum
manifold with (32) integrally molded injectors supplies gas to the burners, and is attached to the front
lower cover of the burner box.

Features
Installation
The lightweight, slim, compact design enables ease of installation and improved appearance. The remote
controls (where fitted) are connected to the appliance by (2) core non-polar cable, or low voltage
thermostat wire, ensuring easy wiring and eliminating problems of mis-connections. Since the remotes
use a 12 VDC digital signal, there’s no-way you can cross up the wiring. You can connect the black
wires to black wires at one terminal, black and white at another, and still not short the units out.
Low Noise Level
Low noise level design enables these appliances to be installed in apartment units, townhouses, and
other high density residential areas with little concern about noise disturbances.
Safety
Various safety devices controlled by a micro- computer ensure complete safety. Also, the anti-frost
device automatically prevents the water inside the appliance from freezing by using small electrical
ceramic heaters, connected to the pipe-work at strategic locations throughout the appliance. The unit has
a secondary freeze prevention device that will allow the unit to fire for three seconds if the water
temperature inside the appliance drops below 37 °F. This mode will heat the water inside the unit back
up to 57 °F. The anti-frost devices should prevent the unit from freeze-ups down to the –30 °F, in a no
wind situation. This feature functions as long as the unit has power and gas.
Economy
Direct ignition to the main burner eliminates wasteful pilot gas consumption. The combustion fan rpm is
proportionally controlled with the gas consumption. This maintains high energy efficiency, as the gas
consumption changes with increased or decreased water flows. The unit’s thermal efficiency rating is;
0.87 for (LP) units and 0.82 for natural gas units.
Water Supply Control
The water supply capacity varies proportionally from 0.5 to 8.5 GPM’s. A suitable volume of hot water
can be supplied throughout all seasons by the water flow control device and water flow
servomechanism. The Continuum 2532 series will supply up to 6.5 GPM’s at a 50°F rise or up to 8.5
GPM’s at a 35 degree rise, controlled by an automatic electro-mechanical water control flow device.
Details pertaining to water flows can be found in the water flow charts in this manual.

Rinnai
Water Temperature Control
With an “MC” remote control connected, the hot water control range at the key pad is 96 – 140 °F. The
“BC” and “BSC” key pads allow for adjustments between 96 – 120 °F. The “MCC” key pad allows the
commercial unit to be adjusted from 96 – 180 ° F. This allows the Continuum to be set to comply with
various State codes pertaining to maximum water temperatures allowed for homes, child care centers,
elderly care centers, etc. where the water temperature can not exceed a certain set point.
Over Temperature Control
All Continuum models incorporate a device to prevent the hot water temperature from exceeding the
pre-set temperature by more than 4 °F.
Temperature Locks
With the remote control(s) connected, the pre-set water temperature can only be altered between 96 –
110 °F while water is flowing. Also, if the remote control circuit fails while water is flowing, the unit
defaults back to 100 °F. That prevents inadvertently increasing the temperature to a hazardous level
while someone is in the shower. This is an Anti-Scald feature.

Remote Controls
The MC45-4US, BC45-4US, BSC45-4US , and the MCC45-4US remote key pads were specifically designed
for use with the Continuum water heaters.
Features include:
Color coordination to allow immediate recognition of the temperature “hot” and “cold” buttons.
Large LED display. Temperature adjustments in two degree increments from 96 – 110 °F, then two five
degree increments from 110 – 115 °F , and 115 °F - 120 °F , on the BC, BSC and MC controllers.
The “MC” controller has two additional ten degree increments, from 120 to 130, and 130 to 140 °F.
The BC, BSC and MC controls are for domestic use. The MCC control allows the temperature to be adjusted
from 96°F - 180°F , this control is used only for commercial units.
Water temperature adjustment only in the range of 96 – 110 °F while hot water is flowing. Anti-Scald feature
defaults unit back to 100 °F, if remote fails or becomes disconnected while water is flowing.
Enhanced communication system between the remote controls, allowing priority temperature selection from
each remote control.
Remote controls offer self-diagnostics in the event of a fault with the unit, simplifying service calls. To
retrive the last ten error codes press and hold the green button down, while holding this button down press the
red button. This will gi ve you a fault code history. To reset, turn the power supply off to the unit , then
reapply power.
Flashes “LC” in the event of a liming condition. To reset the “LC” mode, power must be turned off to the
unit and then reapplied.
To measure the flow rate through the unit using the remote control, press the red button and hold it
down while the unit is operational, while holding the red button down press the green button. This
will give you the gallons per minute flowing through the heater.
To measure the water heater’s output water temperature press the blue button and hold it
down while the unit is operational, while holding the blue button down press the green button. This

Suggested Connection Methods for Remotes
There must be at least one cable from the remote control(s) connected to the Continuum water heater.
Power for the remote(s) is supplied from the PC board. On the front of the PCB, there are two screws
labeled terminals for controls. This is the 12VDC digital power supply for the remotes. Use low voltage
thermostat wire when wiring up the keypads.

Safety Devices
Flame Failure
Situated to the right of the burner in the front of the combustion chamber, the flame rod monitors the
combustion process. This sensor monitors the flame intensity, while the PCB compares this signal to the
feed back signal from the combustion fan motor, water flow control, and gas flow through the POV
valve. If any one of the feedback signals are incorrect, the unit will shut off, preventing discharge of
gas to the burner.
Over Heat Protection Device
Also referred to as an Over Heat Switch. This device is fitted to a bend section at the inlet to the heat
exchanger. If the flame remains on to the burner after the tap is closed and the water temperature inside
the heat exchanger reaches 194 ° F, a 12 volt DC bi-metal cut-off switch will shut off the gas supply to
the solenoids.
No Water
Should the incoming water flow become restricted or stop, the water flow sensor will cease to send a
magnetic pulse signal to the PCB, in turn preventing gas to flow into the combustion chamber. If you
have restricted flow, first check to ensure the inline water filter is not clogged up.
Thermal Fuse
Wrapped around the entire surface of the heat exchanger you will find a thermal fuse. This device
activates in the event the heat exchanger burns out, or the temperature outside the heat exchanger
reaches 264 °F. If the thermal fuse melts, it breaks an electronic circuit which in turn shuts off the
power supply to the gas solenoids, shutting the unit off.
Combustion Fan Revolution Check
The combustion fan rpm’s are continually monitored by a magnetic pulse generator connected to the
PCB. If the fan revolutions deviate from the speed required for complete combustion, a signal is sent to
the PCB and the revolutions adjust accordingly. (If not the unit shuts down)
Automatic Frost Protection
When the temperature inside the appliance drops below 37 °F , the frost sensing device inside the
appliance activates the anti-frost heaters to prevent the water inside the unit from freezing. The antifrost heaters remain ON until the temperature inside the appliance rises to 57 °F. There are four (16)
watt anti-frost heaters located at various points throughout the main water flow area of the appliance.
The unit also incorporates the ability to fire for (3) seconds in the event the anti-frost heaters can not
keep the water temperature from dropping below 37 °F. This unique feature will heat the water in the
lines inside the appliance back up to 57 °F. Both of the above features function as long as the unit has
power and gas. There is an optional freeze protection system that can be added to the unit’s piping.
Contact your supplier for a diagram if you want to install an auto drain down kit on your unit.

5 °F Over temperature Cut-Off
The temperature of the outgoing hot water is constantly monitored by the water temperature thermistor
located near the outlet of the appliance. If the outgoing water temperature reaches 5 °F above the preset
temperature, the burner will automatically go out. The burner will only ignite again once the outgoing
hot water temperature falls below the preset temperature.

DIP SWITCHES
Contact Rinnai for dip switch settings when changing PC board or setting up unit for special applications. Failure to set dip
switches to the proper position will result in damage to the unit, property damage, personal injury or death. DO NOT,
adjust dip switches unless you have written permission from Rinnai. Call 1(800)621-9419 to set-up a special training class
pertaining to dip switch functions.
The dip switches on this appliance can be adjusted to deliver water temperatures from 108°F - 180°F, only for commercial
type applications, and to check/reset low/high fire manifold pressures, and to set the unit up to operate on a different gas
type in the event the unit was converted from one gas type to another. In residential applications these switches should
never be readjusted from the factory setting. The factory default temperature setting is 120°F.
The set-up configuration for the water heater differs depending on:
Gas type
Maximum water flow selected
Temperature limiting requirements
Application type
“SW1” row of switches
1. Short or long flue
2. Fixed water temperature with or without remote.
3. To select a desired water temperature for commercial applications
4. To select a desired water temperature for commercial applications
5. To select a desired water temperature for commercial applications
6. Flow switch activated or de-activated.
7. Combustion control (Forced low fire).
8. Combustion control (Forced high fire).
Combustion control switches are used to set or check the manifold gas pressures on this appliance. When dip
switch #7 is placed in the “ON” position, it places the appliance into forced low fire. When dip switches #7 and
#8 are placed in the “ON” position, it places the unit into forced high fire. Before placing the unit into forced
low or high fire, you MUST ensure you have maximum water flow through the appliance. Open several
faucets throughout the residence before proceeding. After checking or setting manifold gas pressures, dip
switches 7 and 8 MUST be placed in the “OFF” position, to return the appliance to a normal operating
mode. Failure to place these switches to the “OFF” position will cause the unit to mal-function.
The REU-2532 series water heaters comes from the factory set to deliver a water temperature of 120 °F, the REU-2532-C
series is set to deliver 140°F. However, the commercial series will allow water temperature adjustments up to 180°F for
applications such as; hotels, car washes, laundry mats, hospitals, farms, processing plants, etc., that require water
temperatures above 120°F. Temperatures above 120 °F are not recommended due to burn hazards. Please use extreme
caution if adjusting water temperatures above 120 °F.
Explanation of “SW1” Dip Switches;
(Switch #1) Short or Long Flue Switch; at “SW1” row of switches, should be placed in the “ON” position for vent
lengths not exceeding twenty-one equivalent feet. For vent lengths over twenty-one equivalent feet this switch should be
placed in the “OFF” position.
(Switch #2) Fixed Water Temperature With or Without Remote. When this switch is set to the “OFF” position,
switches 3 – 6 can be adjusted to a pre-determined position that will not allow the remote pad to be adjusted above a
selected temperature. When set to the “ON” position and no keypad is being used, the unit can be set to deliver a set
temperature from 108, 120, 130, etc. DO NOT make adjustments without written permission from Rinnai.

(Switches 3,4, & 5) Temperature Adjustment Switches. Switches #3, 4, and 5 are used to set fixed temperatures with or
without the remote keypads. Contact Rinnai for dip switch settings when changing the unit’s PC board or setting up special
applications. Failure to set dip switches to the proper position will result in damage to the unit, property damage, personal
injury or death. DO NOT, adjust switches unless you have written permission directly from Rinnai. Call 1(800)621-9419 to
set-up a special training class pertaining to dip switch functions.
(Switch #6) Flow Switch and Temperature Adjustments. Rinnai offers a flow switch that can serve as an anti-scald
device. This switch is installed in-line with each bathroom. Therefore, if someone was using water above 120°F and a tap
was turned on in one of the bathrooms, the unit would automatically default back to 120°F to prevent scalding. When dip
switch #6 is set to the “ON” position this function is activated. At the present time this switch is not used in the U.S.
market, due to anti-scald devices and/or pressure balancing valves presently being used in our market.
(Switches 7& 8) Low/High Fire Combustion Control Switches. Dip switch # 7 is used to place the unit into forced low
fire when checking and/or setting manifold gas pressures. Dip switch #7 and #8 are used to place the appliance into forced

Water Flows
A simple calculation of the water flow rate, in gallons per minute, can be made using the chart on the
next page, or simply using formula provided below. The chart on the following page indicates the water
flow from the Continuum at various temperature rises up to a 140 degree rise.
a. How to read the charts:
The vertical plane indicates water flow in gallons per minute, and the horizontal plane indicates the
temperature rise. The chart shows flow rates up to a 140 degree rise. Therefore, the water flow chart can
be used to help you size your applications, if you know the temperature rise needed. The temperature
rise is the difference between the temperature of the incoming water and the selected temperature at the
remote control(s). Another name used in place of temperature rise, is delta T.
Select the appropriate temperature rise. Draw a vertical line up the graph from the selected temperature
rise until it intersects the curve. The point at where these lines intersect indicates flow at that
temperature rise.
b. How to calculate water flows:
The following information is an outline of the formula required to measure accurately the flow rate in
gallons per minute, as well as being the base for the chart on the next page. The formula below can be
utilized when you know the following information, the Btu’s and efficiency of the appliance, and the
delta T you are dealing with. If this information is known follow the example below to determine your
flow rate. The example below assumes the appliance’s Btu rating is 180,000, the efficiency is .82 and
the delta T is 55 degrees.
EXAMPLE:
BTU’s ÷ AT x 500 = GPM’s
GPM’s = (180,000 BTU’s x .82 efficiency rating) ÷ ÄT x 500
GPM’s = 147,600 ÷(Requested water temperature – incoming water temperature) x 500
GPM’s = 147,600 ÷ (120 °F requested – 65 °F incoming) x 500
GPM’s = 147,600 ÷ (55 °F delta T x 500)
GPM’s = 147,600 ÷ 27,500
GPM’s = 5.367

Unmixed Water Flows for REU-2532 Series
The chart below can be used to determine water flow rates in “gallons per minute” at a given
temperature rise. In order to figure flow rates, you need the following information; requested water
temperature and inlet water temperature. Next, subtract the inlet water temperature from the requested
temperature to get your delta T or temperature rise. Then, locate your temperature rise at the bottom of
the chart. Follow that line vertically until it intersects with the flow rate line to the left. This indicates
the flow rate at your temperature rise.

Main Components
1.
Mechanical Water Regulator
Rinnai’s unique water regulator mechanism ensures the hot water is maintained with no noticeable
change to the desired temperature during use, even if water pressure drops due to another tap being
turned on and increasing the demand.
The following graph shows that maximum flow is approximately 8.5 gallons per minute for the
Continuum. This maximum flow is reached at 29 PSI inlet pressure respectively.
2.
Preset Bypass
A preset volume of cold water is mixed with water heated in the heat exchanger.
3.
Burner
The burner assembly is made up of 16 identical stainless steel
Bunsen burners, secured by an aluminized steel framework.
An aluminum manifold with 32 integral injectors supplies gas
to the burners, and is attached to the front lower cover of the
burner box and gas control assembly.
4.
Gas Control Valve
The gas control valve uses four solenoids to fully modulate within four different input ranges to
respond quickly and accurately to changes in water flow rate. The four ranges are as follows: up to
18% of total btu’s (using three burners), up to 33% (using five burners), up to 50% (using eight
burners, and up to 100% (using sixteen burners) This increases the flexibility of the regulator/
modulating valve by supplying gas equally to each burners.

5.
Combustion Fan
Air for the combustion is supplied by a centrifugal fan
driven by a DC motor. After a pre-purge period of 0.2
seconds, the fan speed is controlled by the PCB to
provide the correct volume of air for combustion. The
calculation for the fan speed is based upon incoming
water temperature, water flow and the temperature
selected on the remote controls.
The actual speed of the motor is continuously monitored
by a magnetic pulse sensor.
This sensor emits (4) pulses per rotation of the fan. This is
the fan feedback or confirmation data processed by the PCB.
1. The fan speed is constantly correcting to provide optimum combustion conditions.
2. To determine the opening degree of the modulating gas valve, so that the gas rate always matches the volume
of air for combustion, as well as the input required to heat the water.
The reason for controlling the opening degree of the modulating gas valve based upon data from the combustion
fan is that, the gas valve is able to react much more quickly to a change in control signal than the combustion fan
is. Controlling the gas valve based upon data from the combustion fan means that combustion remains
satisfactory, even if there are sudden changes in input conditions.
6.
Water Flow Sensor and Water Flow Control device
Water flow is detected by a turbine/magnetic pulse generating device. Water flows through the turbine/magnetic
sensor providing information to the PCB by generating a pre-determined number of pulses in proportion to the
water flow. These pulses are counted by the PCB – no pulse indicates no water flow. The frequency of the
magnetic pulses increases as the water flow increases, this enables the PCB to calculate the exact water flow, and
determine the water flow in gallons per minute. As soon as the required water flow is detected, the PCB activates
the combustion fan. The combustion fan speed is monitored by a magnetic pulse sensor. The output from this
sensor is processed by the PCB which opens the gas modulating valve to a degree proportional to the fan speed.
See above for further details on the combustion fan.
The water flow control consists of a plug and barrel valve which is rotated by a motor to increase or decrease the
volume of water passing through the heat exchanger.
REU-2532 units have an automatic water flow control device.

Operation Principles
The preset temperature is selected at one of the remotes controls (where fitted). Where no remote control is
fitted , the default temperature can be set at 108, 120, 130, 140, 150, 160, 170, or 180 °F. To select one of
the above temperatures as your default setting, you MUST obtain written permission and training from
Rinnai.
When the unit is first plugged into 120 volts, the PCB assumes an incoming water temperature of 77 °F.
This prevents the appliance from starting in “High fire” and producing very hot water the first time it is
used.
The data used to determine the outgoing water temperature, initially, is incoming water flow and the remote
control pre-set temperature.
From the incoming water flow and remote control pre-set temperature data, the CPU is able to determine a
suitable gas rate to kick the appliance off once a hot water tap opens.
The calculation of temperature rise and water flow is called simulation feed-forward.
The water heater calculates incoming water temperature by subtracting the theoretical temperature rise
from the outgoing hot water temperature to establish the correct gas flow.
When a hot water tap is opened, water begins to flow through the appliance. The turbine in the water flow
sensor begins to revolve. The revolution speed is proportional to the heater flow. A sensor located inside
the device relays information in the form of magnetic pulses to the main PCB to determine whether or not
water is flowing, and also, the volume of water flowing. When a predetermined water flow is sensed, the
ignition sequence begins.
The combustion fan pre-purges the combustion chamber. A rev counter on the combustion fan indicates
the fan rpm to the main PCB. Once the pre-purge cycle is completed, the PCB controls the fan rpm by
varying the DC voltage to the fan motor. This maintains the correct air/gas ratio throughout the time the
water heater is in use and ensures good combustion.
The gas is ignited by direct electronic spark and the flame is sensed by the flame rod. The opening degree
of the modulating valve is determined by the combustion fan speed.
The changeover valve directs gas to one side or both sides of the burner. At the point where the changeover
valve opens or closes the modulating valve is instantly re-adjusted by the PCB to compensate for the
change in the number of burners in use. From the information provided by the water flow sensor and the
water temperature thermistor, the PCB determines how much gas is required to heat the water to the
temperature selected on the remote control.
The PCB is programmed to provide the maximum volume of water possible at a given temperature rise. As
the water flow from the tap is increased, the PCB increases the gas and air flow to the burner.
REU-2532FFU Series
30
Rinnai
When the hot water tap is turned off, the water flow sensor stops revolving, and the magnetic pulse ceases,
indicating to the PCB that there is no water flowing, in turn the PCB closes the gas valves. The combustion
fan continues to operate for 65 seconds. This is to provide quicker ignition when the tap is turned on and
off in rapid succession, as it removes the need for a pre-purge cycle and allows the burner to re-light
immediately when a hot water tap is opened again.

24. Gas Pressure Setting Procedure
CONTINUUM V2532FFU
All settings/adjustments must be performed
by a qualified Service Technician.
1. Turn unit off at power source and turn off the gas to the water heater.
2. Remove the front cover from the water heater.
3. Remove the gas pressure test port plug. Connect manometer to this port. See Figure #1 for
location of the test port plug. Turn on the gas to the water heater.
4. Flow water through the water heater at the maximum flow rate obtainable.
5. To adjust the “Low” fire pressure, set combustion control dip switch #1 to the “OFF” position,
switch # 7 to the “ON” position, and switch #8 to the “OFF” position (see figure #2 for location
of combustion control switches.) This will put the unit into forced low fire. Check the pressure
reading on your manometer. If the pressure needs adjusting, remove the rubber plug from the
bottom of the water heater casing (located beneath the regulator), to access the regulator
adjustment screw. Adjust the pressure to the correct setting (See figure #1 for location of the
regulator adjustment screw.) Below are the proper pressures for “Low” fire, per gas type being
used.
Propane
Natural
0.93” w.c. @ 11” w.c. supply
0.77” w.c. @ 7” w.c. supply
(Low fire rate of 15,000 BTU’s)
(Low fire rate of 15,000 BTU’s)
6. To adjust the “High” fire pressure, set combustion control dip switch #1 to the “ON” position,
switch # 7 to the “ON” position, and switch #8 to the “ON” position (see figure #2 for location
of the combustion control switches), this will put the unit into forced high fire. Check the
pressure reading on your manometer. If the pressure needs adjusting, adjust it by turning the
high pressure “Pot”. See figure #2 for location of “high pressure setting pot”. Below are the
proper pressures for “High” fire, per gas type being used.
Propane
Natural
4.2” w.c. @ 11” w.c. supply
3.7” w.c. @ 7” w.c. supply
(High fire rate of 180,000 BTU’s)
(High fire rate of 180,000 BTU’s)
7. Verify both low and high fire pressures by placing the water heater into “Forced Low Fire” and
“Forced High Fire” as described in steps 5 and 6 above. This completes the gas pressure setting
procedure.
REU-2532FFU Series
52
Rinnai
Dip switches #7 and #8 (combustion control switches), MUST be returned to the “Off” position, after
setting the pressures. Dip switch #1 MUST be returned to the proper position based upon the length
of the Vent/Air Intake pipe. (“ON” position = Short Vent/Air Intake – 6’ to 21’ equivalent length,
“OFF” position = Long Vent/Air Intake – 22’ to 41’ equivalent length).
1. Turn off the gas to the water heater. Remove the manometer connection. Reinstall the pressure port plug.
Turn on the gas to the water heater and check for gas leaks around test port with a leak solution.
2. Reinstall the front cover and place the unit back into operation.
3. Verify you are getting the proper water temperature, as set on the controller at your outlets. If controllers are
not being used the output temperature should be 120°F.

SERVICEMAN’S TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION
for the
RINNAI “CONTINUUM REU2532-FFU” WATER HEATERS
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTES:
There are a number of (live) tests that are required when fault finding this product. Extreme care
should be used at all times to avoid contact with energized components inside the water heater.
Only trained and qualified service agencies should attempt to repair this product.
Remember, before checking for resistance readings, you should disconnect the power source to
the unit and isolate item the to be checked from the circuit (unplug it).

Flame Rod:
Place one lead of your meter to the flame rod and the other to earth or ground. With the unit running you should read
between 5 ~ 150 VAC. Set your meter to the µ amp scale, series your meter in line with the flame rod. You should read
1µ or greater for proper flame circuit. In the event of low flame circuit remove the flame rod and check for carbon and/or
damage.
Heat Exchanger, Air Temperature, and Outgoing Water Temperature Thermistors:
Check all thermistors by inserting meter leads into each end of the thermistor plug. Set your meter to the 20K
scale and read resistance. You should be able to apply heat to the thermistor bulb and see the resistance
decrease. Then apply some ice to the thermistor and the resistance should increase. See below for examples
of temperatures and resistance reading at those temperatures.
Example: 59ºF = 11.4 ~ 14K
86ºF = 6.4 ~

Frost Protection:
This unit has four frost protection heaters mounted at different points inside the unit, to protect the water
heater from freeze ups. There are two heaters located on the outlet hot water line next to the thermistor.
Using a voltage meter set on the 200 ohm scale, you should have a resistance reading of 26 ~ 30 ohms
through each of these heaters. The heater located on the heat exchanger piping should have a resistance
reading of 81 ~ 86 ohms and the one located in the water flow sensor valve has a resistance reading of 16 ~
19 ohms. Voltage throughout this circuit should be 120 VAC.

(3) Amp Fuses:
This unit has two inline (3) amp glass fuses. Remove the fuse and check continuity through it. If you have
Continuity through the fuse, it is good. If you can not read continuity, the fuse is blown and must be replaced.
