ELECTRONIC HOT SURFACE
IGNITION CONTROL BOARD
8.
ALL MODELS - The WHC1502 ignition control board is a fully
integrated, state of the art electronic control system. The ignition
control board includes a microprocessor, which governs all
temperature and ignition control functions for the appliance. Inherent
in the design are the normal operating sequences and safety features
associated with a gas ignition control system. The ignition control
continuously performs various diagnostic tests to verify proper
appliance and control operation. Should an unsafe condition occur,
the control will shut down the burner and illuminate the appropriate
diagnostic indicators on the Display Board, indicating a need for
service. All operating programs are stored in permanent memory
on the ignition control and a second programmable memory is used
for retaining user-specific operating parameters in the event main
power is ever interrupted.
9.
10.
Line Polarity Indicator
A green LED is mounted on the ignition control to indicate line voltage polarity is properly connected. When 120 VAC input power is
properly connected to the Ignition Control Board, the green LED will
illuminate. If an error is made when connecting 120 VAC input
power, this LED will not light. Improperly connecting the input power
may result in a false flame sensor failure.
DIA-SCAN II DISPLAY BOARD OPERATING PROCEDURES
Fuse Protection
The 24 VAC circuitry is protected with a 3 amp auto fuse. If the fuse
opens, a red LED located near the fuse will light. If the red LED is
illuminated, replace the fuse (recommended replacement part is
Little fuse p/n 257003 automotive fuse). Repeated failure of the
fuse is an indication of possible damage to the ignition control board.
The Display Board provides a user-friendly interface to the
WHC1502 Ignition Control Board. With the Display Board, the
user can control appliance functions and view the overall operating status of the appliance. If an error condition occurs, the
Display Board will scroll a message across the LED display,
indicating the error code. Under normal operating conditions,
the four digit LED display on the Display Board will continuously
illustrate the water temperature sensed at temperature probe
#1 (Outlet). The push buttons on the Display Board allow the
user to program and view the desired water temperature set
point. The Display Board is connected to the Ignition Control
Board through a 6 conductor cable assembly with modular plug
terminations. In addition, an 8 conductor modular jack on the
Display Board allows for connecting a remote display board.
NOTE: One extra fuse is supplied with the boiler.

7.
If a flame is confirmed, the control will enter the heating
mode where it will continue heating until the set-point temperature is reached, and the thermostat circuit opens. At
that point, the gas valve is closed and the control enters
the post-purge and post-circulating cycles.
The combustion blower will run for a 25 second post purge
cycle. When the post purge cycle is complete, the blower
is de-energized and will coast to a stop. The circulating
pump will continue with the post-circulate cycle for the
selected amount of time, factory default is 45 seconds.
See circulating pump adjustment procedure on page 5
and 6 of this manual.
The control now enters the idle state while continuing to
monitor temperature and the state of other system devices. If the outlet temperature drops below the set-point
value minus the switching differential, and the thermostat
circuit or tank probe circuit closes, the control will automatically return to step 2 and repeat the entire operating
cycle. During this idle state, if the control detects an improper operating state for external devices such as the
ECO switch, air pressure switch, gas pressure switch,
etc., the appropriate LED(s) on the Display Board will illuminate indicating the nature of the fault.
When power is applied to the WHC1502 ignition control,
the Display board will initially run through a self-diagnostic
routine, and then go into its operating mode, displaying
the temperature sensed at temperature probe #1 (Outlet).
If the ignition control board determines the actual outlet
water temperature at the temperature sensing probe
(probe #1) is below the programmed temperature set-point
less the switching differential, and the thermostat circuit
or tank probe circuit closes, call for heat is activated.
The ignition control board then performs selected system
diagnostic checks. This includes confirming the proper
state of the ECO/High Limit device, flow switch, and pressure switches.
If all checks are successfully passed, the circulating pump
circuit is energized, then the combustion blower is energized for the 20 second pre-purge cycle.
When the pre-purge cycle is complete, the ignitor is energized. The pump and blower should continue to run.
The ignition control board will verify ignitor current. After
the verification, the gas valve will open, allowing gas to
enter the burner.
After an additional 1 second, the ignition control board will
monitor the flame sense probe to confirm a flame is
present. If a flame is not verified within 4 seconds, the gas
valve is immediately closed, and the ignition control board
will return to step 2, unless jumper J30 is in place (ON),
see figure 2.
When power is applied to the WHC1502 System, the Display Board
will initially run through a self-diagnostic test, and then display the
Outlet temperature. To display a specific setting or temperature,
press the SELECT push-button until the appropriate LED is illuminated (see figure 1). After 5 seconds, the Display Board will automatically revert to displaying the Outlet temperature. Pressing the
ENTER/RESET push-button will hold the display in the indicated
mode until the SELECT push-button is pressed.
With the Display Board, the user can make adjustments to many of
the appliance’s control features. This includes the following:

NOTE: The boiler must complete a full cycle in order for the
new setting to take effect. If the unit is turned off
prior to a complete cycle the setting will be lost and
the previous setting will remain in effect.
If the ADJUST push-button is held down long enough, the set-point
will reach 110°F, the minimum value (or 240°F, the maximum value)
and stop. At this point, if the desired set-point is not obtained, release the ADJUST push-button and depress it again. The set-point
value will now restart at 110°F (240°F) and once again increase
(decrease) in value for as long as the ADJUST push-button is
pressed.
Switching Differential Adjustment Procedure
Figure 1. Dia-Scan II Display Board.
To facilitate proper operation and maximize appliance performance,
the control has a programmable operating switching differential or
"hysteresis" about the set point. This means a call for heat will
become active when the water temperature measured at the outlet
temperature sensing probe (Probe #1) drops to the set-point value
minus the switching differential value. The burner will remain on
until the water temperature measured at probe #1 reaches the setpoint value. The switching differential value is fully programmable
from 5°F to 50°F using the push-button(s) located on the Display
Board. The default is set at 20°F.

Troubleshooting
surrounding air pressure. Inspection of the boiler and vent system
is necessary to insure that flue gas leakage to the surrounding area
does not occur.
The WHC1502 Series Control System has many inherent diagnostic and fault detection routines built into its operating hardware and
software. These routines, in conjunction with the four (4) digit LED
display and eleven (11) LED status indicators on the Display Board,
can greatly assist any service person in quickly pinpointing the source
of a problem which may occur within the appliance. Under certain
circumstances, multiple LED’s will illuminate to better pinpoint the
target area(s).
Inspect the external surfaces of the vent system every 3 months for
corrosion and leakage. Inspect the vent terminations for corrosion
and foreign matter which may be blocking the exhausting flue
products. Call a qualified service agent to replace or repair any
corroded or leaking parts.
Qualified service agent must inspect internal surfaces of the vent
system and the boiler at least once a year.
The following list defines the error code messages that scroll across

The burners should display the following characteristics:
• Provide complete combustion of gas.
• Cause rapid ignition and carry over across all burners and across
the entire burner.
• Give quiet operation during ignition, burning and extinction.
• Cause no excessive lifting of flames from the burner ports.
SenSor FAIL
One of the sensors, Flow,

Ignitor FAIL
No Ignitor current sensed.
If the preceding characteristics are not evident, check for
accumulation of lint or other foreign material that restricts the inlet
air or burner ports. Ensure there is the proper amount of air to
the burner. Flame lifting from the burner is caused by too much
air to the burner.
No Ignition
Flame not detected after 1 or
3 tries.
The burners must be inspected by a qualified service technician at
least once a year.

APPLIANCE. NONCOMPLIANCE MAY RESULT IN FIRE OR
EXPLOSION. DO NOT OBSTRUCT THE FLOW OF COMBUSTION OR VENTILATION AIR TO THE APPLIANCE.
BLOCKED VENT SHUT-OFF SYSTEM
CHEMICAL VAPOR CORROSION
The Boiler is equipped with a blocked vent shut-off system which
will close the gas valve and shut off the main burner gas when there
is excessive pressure in the vent system due to a partially or
completely blocked vent system. The DIA-SCAN II display on the
front panel will indicate this failure condition.
Boiler corrosion and component failure can be caused by airborne
chemical vapors. Spray can propellants, cleaning solvents,
refrigerants, calcium or sodium chloride (water softener salts),
waxes, and process chemicals are typical compounds that are
potentially corrosive. These materials are corrosive at very low
concentration levels with little or no odor to reveal their presence.
Products of this sort should not be stored near the boiler. Air which
is brought in contact with the boiler should not contain any of these
chemicals. The boiler should be provided with air from outdoors
when installed in environments having corrosive atmospheres.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPERATE THE BOILER if this situation
occurs. Shut the boiler off before performing all the steps shown
in "TO TURN OFF GAS TO APPLIANCE" section of the Lighting
and Operating Instructions.
Contact a qualified service agent to inspect the unit and vent system
and correct the problem.
CIRCULATION PUMP
Refer to the pump manufacturer's schedule of maintenance for
frequency and method of lubricating the pump and motor. Inspect
the pump once a month for leaky mechanical seals and/or O-rings
and loose or damaged components. Contact a qualified service
agent to replace or repair parts as required.
