General Remarks
Caution
The manufacturer cannot be responsible for the damages caused by improper installation
or by failure to follow instructions in this pamphlet. Comply with the installation instructions
before completing electric connection.
Caution
The thermostat has been pre-set at the factory to about 60°C/140°F. To reduce the risk of
scald injury, keep the thermostat at the warm position. (letter M, Fig. 3-4)
Caution
Hydrogen gas can be produced in a hot water system served by this heater that has not been
used for a long period of time (generally 2 weeks or more). Hydrogen gas is extremely
flammable. To reduce the risk of injury under these conditions, it is recommended that the
hot water faucet be opened for several minutes at the kitchen sink before using any electrical
appliance connected to the hot water system. If hydrogen is present, there will probably be
an unusual sound such as air escaping through the pipe as the water begins to flow. There
should be no smoking or open flame near the open faucet at this time.
Installation Instructions
The P 10S and P 15S water heaters can be installed under the sink.
Wall
Mounting
Fasten the supplied mounting bracket to the wall. Use screws that are suitable for the wall
material and the weight of the heater.
Hang the water heater on the bracket. Tug downwards on the heater to ensure that both
"fingers" of the bracket are seated in the mounting slots.
3
Pipe
Connections
Connect the cold water inlet pipe to the inlet nipple (marked with a blue ring - #1, Fig. 4).
IMPORTANT: You must use dielectric fittings if inlet piping/fittings are copper or brass.
Failure to provide dielectric insulation may result in premature tank or nipple failure and will
void warranty. Dielectric nipples are recommended over unions and are available from a
supply house or CEC.
Caution
To reduce the risk of excessive pressures and temperatures in this water heater, install
temperature and pressure protective equipment required by local codes but not less than a
combination temperature and pressure relief valve certified by a nationally recognized
testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection of production of listed equipment or
materials, as meeting the requirements for Relief Valves and Automatic Gas Shut-off
Devices for Hot Water Supply Systems, ANSI Z21.22. This valve must be marked with a
maximum set pressure not to exceed the marked maximum working pressure of the water
heater. Install the valve into the opening provided and marked for this purpose in the water
heater, and orient it or provide tubing so that any discharge from the valve will exit within 6
inches above, or at any distance below, the structural floor, and cannot contact any live
electrical part. The discharge opening must not be blocked or reduced in size under any
circumstances.
Closed
system
thermal
expansion
Periodic discharge of the temperature and pressure relief valve or failure of the element
gasket may be due to thermal expansion in a closed water supply system. The water utility
supply meter may contain a check valve, backflow preventer or water pressure reducing
valve which will create a closed water system. During the heating cycle of the water heater,
the water expands causing pressure inside the water heater to increase. The temperature
and pressure relief valve may discharge hot water under these conditions which results in a
loss of energy and a build-up of lime on the relief valve seat.
To prevent this from happening, there are two recommendations:
1.
Install a diaphragm-type expansion tank that is suitable for potable water on the cold
water supply line. The expansion tank must have a minimum capacity of 1.5 U.S.
gallons for every 50 gallons of stored water.
2.
Install a 125 PSI pressure relief valve in the cold water supply line. Make sure the
discharge of this valve is directed to an open drain and protected from freezing.
Contact the local water supplier or plumbing inspector for information on how to
control this situation. Do not plug the temperature and pressure relief valve.

Instructions for use
Starting and
testing
Before connecting the power, fillthe tank and system with water and check for leaks. To be
certain that all the air is out of the water system, open the hot water faucets on your fixtures
until constant water flows from them, otherwise damage to the element may occur.
To start the heating cycle:
A)
first make sure tank is full. Otherwise the heating element may be damaged.
B)
move red on/off switch (letter F, Fig 3-4) to the ON position (to the left).
C)
turn the thermostat dial clockwise to the preferred position. The red light will come
on and remain on until that temperature has been reached, at which point
the light will go off, but will automatically come back on when the water
temperature drops below the setting chosen.
Temperature
setting, and
freeze
protection
The temperature is controlled by turning the thermostat dial (letter M, Fig. 3-4) counterclockwise to decrease the temperature, and clockwise to increase it.
Note: Setting on "very hot" is for an approximate temperature of 63° C / 145° F.
Warning: The "very hot" is a scalding temperature.
The lowest setting is that point on the dial where (with cold water in the tank) the
light comes on when dialing from the lowest counter clockwise position. This lowest
setting is for an approximate temperature of 27° C / 80° F.
WARNING:
Adjusting the temperature dial above the "hot" setting will increase
the risk of scald injury. Households with small children, the elderly,
or invalids may require a temperature setting below "hot".
Turning the heater's thermostat to the lowest setting provides
economical and effective freeze protection.
Maintenance Instructions
Note:
Do not attempt to repair the water heater yourself. Call a service person for
assistance. Always unplug the heater prior to servicing or draining the heater.
Refer to Fig. 3 (1-5) for corresponding letter parts
PERIODIC MAINTENANCE AND PARTS REPLACEMENT
Note:
For most of these operations, the water will have to be drained from the heater. For all of
these operations the power cord needs to be unplugged and the front cover removed
Draining
the
Heater
1. If the heater has been installed with flexible hoses, unplug the power cord and turn
the heater upside down over a sink to drain the water out of it, OR
2. If the heater has been installed with rigid piping, siphon the water out through any
(lower) service valve on the (inlet side). Keep hot water faucet open while siphoning
the water out, OR
3. If the heater has been installed with flexible hoses, it can also be emptied by siphoning
through the inlet side hose. Keep a hot water faucet open while siphoning.
Removing
the heating
element
Unplug the power cord and drain the heater (see previous section).
Remove the front cover plate, disconnect terminals X and Y (Fig. 3-3).
Unscrew the heating element retaining nut (letter E, Fig. 3-3).
Remove the element by first tapping it inward and then pull out using a circular motion.
5
Descaling
the heating
Element
Scale deposits can affect the heating capability of the element.
Heavy scale can even cause the element to burn out. The element can be descaled
either chemically or manually:
A) Soak the element in white vinegar or other descaling solution, (do not soak the
rubber gasket). Once descaled, rinse well with fresh water, to which you should
add some baking soda, OR
B) Once the element has dried up, use a soft brush (non metallic to prevent damaging the stainless steel sheath) on element. Brush the dried mineral off. Reinstall the
element with gasket and make the wire connections.
C) Replace anode rod if considerably shorter then diagram (letter N, Fig. 3-2).
Warning: make sure the tank has been refilled with water before restoring power.
REPLACEMENT OF PARTS
Changing
the anode
rod
The anode rod (letter N, Fig. 3-2) helps protect the tank against corrosion. Depending on the water condition,the magnesium anode rod may need to be changed every
year or so. Galvanic and electrolytic corrosion can destroy a tank if the anode rod is
"spent". Rusty water is usually an indication of a "spent" anode rod. If rusty water is
present, examine anode rod immediately. Rapid degradation of the anode rod (less
than 1 year) may indicate the presence of galvanic corrosion due to "stray" direct
current. In this case, it may be necessary to add a "grounding strap" from the
Ariston tank to the copper plumbing.
1. Unplug the power and drain the heater (see previous section).
2. Remove the heating element (see previous section).
3. Replace anode rod.
4. Refill tank with water before restoring power.
Changing
the heating
element
1.Unplug and drain the heater (see previous section).
2.Remove the heating element (see section on Removing the Heating Element).
3.Remove and reuse anode rod if not "spent". Best to replace it.
4.Install new element with anode rod attached and rubber gasket, making sure the
gasket and element are positioned correctly. Tighten the retaining nut and make the wire
connections.
5. Refill tank with water before restoring power.
Changing
the
thermostat
1.Disconnect power supply.
2.Disconnect the 2 push/pull type wires on thermostat (Fig. 3-5)
3.Loosen the two brass screws at right side of thermostat and pull wires out.
4. Unscrew and remove the two phillips screws holding the thermostat down.
5. Install new thermostat and re-attach wiring and screws.
6
Resetting
High Limit
Switch
Occasionally, the high temperature limit shut off device may trigger and shut the
system down. This occurs when water temperature exceeds 190°F and shuts off
power to the heating element. The shut off device may also trigger from a power
outage or electrical storm.
To reset:
1. IMPORTANT: Disconnect heater from electrical power.
2. Remove front cover plate and temperature selector dial.
3. Firmly press blue reset button, (B, Fig. 3-5).
4. Replace temperature dial and cover plate, reconnect power.
5. IMPORTANT: Check the operation of the thermostat, turn temperature dial from
high to low, if the red light does not go off on low setting, disconnect power cord
and call a service person to replace thermostat.
6. If the system works, place dial setting to desired setting;
Note: a lower setting is more economical, and reduces the risk of scalding.
CAUTION: Call a technician if the high limit needs to be reset frequently
Troubleshooting
Water does
not get hot
1. Make sure the power cord is plugged in.
2. Make sure on/off switch is turned on (F, Fig. 3-4 or #8, Fig. 4)
3. Make sure thermostat dial (M, Fig. 3-4 or #7, Fig. 4) has been turned clockwise,
and red on/off switch light has come on.
4. If light does not come on, check that the blue reset button (B, Fig. 3-5) is pushed
in; follow steps from previous section.
5. If the indicator light works properly but temperature does not get hot at tap, test for a
plumbing crossover; shut off cold supply to heater and open hot water tap. There
should be no water flowing. Any continued flow indicates a crossover which will effect
the temperature and will need to be corrected.
Light not
On
1. If the on/off light switch does not come on, but water gets hot, check for faulty bulb.
2. If water is cold , turn the temperature dial clockwise to a higher temperature setting.
If still no light follow previous section on how to reset the high limit switch.
Brown Water
1. Brown or rusty water indicates a "spent" anode rod. Replace anode rod.
Odor in Water 1. Smelly water could be due to an unusual reaction between local water and the heater's
anode rod. Check anode rod.
Water is too
hot
1. Turn the temperature selector dial (M, Fig. 3-4) counter clockwise to lower temperature
If temperature never lowers then replace thermostat.
Leaking
1. Check water fittings and T&P fitting on top of tank.
2. Remove front cover and inspect heating element gasket. If gasket is not seated prop
erly, unplug heater and follow steps to drain heater. Then remove heating element to
reseat gasket. A torn gasket will need to be replaced.
