Handling ceramic fiber materials
REMOVAL OF COMBUSTION CHAMBER LINING
 WARNING The combustion chamber insulation in this appliance contains ceramic fiber material. Ceramic fibers can
be converted to cristobalite in very high temperature applications. The International Agency for Research
on Cancer (IARC) has concluded, “Crystalline silica in the form of quartz or cristobalite from occupational
sources is carcinogenic to humans (Group 1).” Normal operating temperatures in this appliance are below
the level to convert ceramic fibers to cristobalite. Abnormal operating conditions would have to be created
to convert the ceramic fibers in this appliance to cristobalite.
The ceramic fiber material used in this appliance is an irritant; when handling or replacing the ceramic
materials it is advisable that the installer follow these safety guidelines.
Avoid breathing dust and contact with skin and eyes.
• Use NIOSH certified dust respirator (N95). This type of respirator is based on the OSHA
requirements for cristobalite at the time this document was written. Other types of respirators may
be needed depending on the job site conditions. Current NIOSH recommendations can be found on
the NIOSH website at http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/homepage.html. NIOSH approved respirators,
manufacturers, and phone numbers are also listed on this website.
• Wear long-sleeved, loose fitting clothing, gloves, and eye protection.
Apply enough water to the combustion chamber lining to prevent airborne dust.
 Remove the combustion chamber lining from the appliance and place it in a plastic bag for disposal.
 Wash potentially contaminated clothes separately from other clothing.
thoroughly.

Service Manual
Please read before proceeding
When servicing boiler –
• To avoid electric shock, disconnect electrical supply
before performing maintenance.
• To avoid severe burns, allow boiler to cool before
performing maintenance.
Boiler operation –
• Do not block flow of combustion or ventilation air to
the boiler.
• Should overheating occur or gas supply fail to shut off,
do not turn off or disconnect electrical supply to
circulator. Instead, shut off the gas supply at a location
external to the appliance.
• Do not use this boiler if any part has been under water.
The possible damage to a flooded appliance can be
extensive and present numerous safety hazards. Any
appliance that has been under water must be replaced.
Boiler water –
• Thoroughly flush the system (without boiler
connected) to remove sediment. The high-efficiency
heat exchanger can be damaged by build-up or
corrosion due to sediment.
• Do not use petroleum-based cleaning or sealing
compounds in the boiler system. Gaskets and seals in
the system may be damaged. This can result in
substantial property damage.
• Do not use “homemade cures” or “boiler patent
medicines”. Serious damage to the boiler, personnel,
and/or property may result.
• Continual fresh make-up water will reduce boiler life.
Mineral buildup in the heat exchanger reduces heat
transfer, overheats the stainless steel heat exchanger, and
causes failure. Addition of oxygen carried in by makeup
water can cause internal corrosion. Leaks in boiler
piping must be repaired at once to prevent the
introduction of makeup water.
Freeze protection fluids –
• NEVER use automotive antifreeze. Use only inhibited
propylene glycol solutions which are specifically
formulated for hydronic systems. Ethylene glycol is
toxic and can attack gaskets and seals used in hydronic
systems.

General Operation
Figure 1-1 Home Screen
How the boiler operates
The Crest uses an advanced stainless steel heat exchanger
and electronic control module that allows fully condensing
operation. The blowers pull in air and push flue products out
of the boiler through the heat exchanger and flue piping. The
control module regulates blower speeds to control the boiler
firing rate. The gas valves sense the amount of air flowing into
the boiler and allow only the right amount of gas to flow.
How the control modules operate
The Crest boiler is equipped with a SMART TOUCH control
module. The SMART TOUCH control module receives inputs
from boiler sensors and external devices. The control module
activates and controls the blowers and gas valves to regulate heat
input and switches the boiler, Hot Water Generator (HWG),
and system pumps on and off as needed. The user programs
the control module to meet system needs by adjusting control
parameters. These parameters set operating temperatures and
boiler operating modes.
Figure 1-2 Main Menu Screen
Sequence of operation
Table 1A (page 12) shows control module normal sequences of
operation for space heating and HWG operation. The combined
operation sequence is for a typical application, programmed to
provide HWG priority.

Table 1A Sequence of Operation
Sequence of operation
Note: This unit is equipped with two (2) gas train systems. Gas Train 1 will fire first. If the demand cannot be met by the first
gas train, the second gas train (Gas Train 2) will fire.
1.
Upon a call for heat, the control turns on the appropriate pumps (system and boiler pumps for a space heating call,
HW pump for a domestic hot water call).
2.
The control confirms that the low water cutoff contacts are closed and energizes the louvers (optional) and damper
(optional) relays.
3.
The control confirms that the gas pressure switch, blocked drain switch, limits, louver proving switch (optional) and
damper proving switch (optional) contacts close. The Pre-Purge cycle begins.
4.
The control confirms both blowers come up to the desired speed, both blower proving switches close, and the air
pressure switch is closed.
5.
Once the Pre-Purge cycle is complete, the control lowers the blower speeds, initiates sparking of the ignition electrode,
and opens Gas Valve 1.
6.
After a short wait, the control stops sparking and checks for the presence of flame current through the flame sense
electrode.
7.
If the control does not detect flame current, the control will lockout indefinitely, until the RESET button on the touch
screen LCD is pressed. Models FB 1500 - 2500 will have one retry.
8.
If the control detects flame current, the control will hold the blower speed constant for a few seconds to allow the
flame to stabilize, then begin modulating the firing rate in order to maintain the controlling sensor to the desired set
point temperature.
9.
If the current call for heat is for space heating and a HW call for heat becomes active, the control will turn on the HW
pump relay output, then turn off the boiler pump. It will then modulate the blower speed in order to maintain the
outlet temperature to the desired HW outlet set point temperature.
10.
If the first combustion system in the boiler is unable to maintain the desired set point temperature, the second
combustion system in the boiler will be started. Both blowers will modulate to a set speed, and the second gas valve
will be energized. The second combustion system will light from the first combustion system. The second flame will
be monitored much like the first. Once both combustion systems are firing, the control will work in synchronization
to maintain the desired set point temperature. If the heat load should decrease sufficiently, the second combustion
system will be shut down.
11.
Once both the space heating and HW calls for heat are satisfied, the control will turn off the gas valve(s) and begin
the Post-Purge cycle. Any pumps that are running will begin their respective Pump Delay cycles.
12.
At the end of the Post-Purge cycle, the louver relay contacts will de-energize.
13.
The control verifies that the blowers stop running and the blower proving switches open.
14.
At the end of the Pump Delay cycle(s), the pump(s) will be turned off.

Viewable and changeable control parameters
See Table 1B on pages 13 - 17 of this manual for parameter references listed in this section. The parameter
references listed in this section will not appear on the LCD screen.
NOTICE
CAUTION
Before changing parameters, note the
settings so that the unit can be returned to
its original operating parameters.
A: Initial Setup
Clock and Date
The control uses an internal clock for the night setback
feature and for logging of events. For these features to
work correctly, the clock must be set when the boiler is first
installed or anytime the boiler has been powered off for more
than four (4) hours. This parameter must be accessed to set
the clock. Parameter A2 sets the date.
NOTICE
The internal clock does not adjust for
Daylight Savings Time and therefore,
will require a manual adjustment.
SH Offset
The SH offset sets how many degrees above set point the
temperature can go before the boiler will shut off. This
parameter can only be changed by the installer by accessing
parameter B4.
SH Differential
The SH differential sets how many degrees below the offset the
temperature has to drop before the boiler turns back on. This
parameter can only be changed by the installer by accessing
parameter B5.
HWG Tank Set Point
B: Set Points
By installing a tank sensor, the SMART TOUCH control can
perform the tank thermostat function. The SMART TOUCH
control automatically detects the presence of this sensor, and
generates a call for heat when the tank temperature drops below
the tank set point minus the differential (parameter B7), and
finishes the call for heat when the tank temperature reaches
tank set point. This parameter can be changed by the installer
by accessing parameter B6.
Space Heating (SH) Minimum Set Point
HWG Tank Differential
The SH minimum set point sets the minimum water
temperature set point that can be used for space heating
operation. The user or installer will not be able to program
the control with a lower SH set point. This parameter can
only be changed by the installer by accessing parameter B1.
When a tank sensor is installed, the tank temperature must drop
this amount below the tank set point (parameter B6) before
the boiler will turn on. The installer can adjust this setting by
accessing the parameter B7.
Parameters A3 - A12 shown in the Initial Setup Menu are
grouped here for convenience. For a detailed explanation
of each parameter, reference the specific menu for each
parameter.
Space Heating (SH) Maximum Set Point
The SH maximum set point sets the maximum water
temperature set point that can be used for space heating. The
user or installer will not be able to program the control with
a higher SH set point. This parameter can only be changed
by the installer by accessing parameter B2.
Manual Reset High Limit
The SMART TOUCH control contains an integral Manual
Reset High Limit (MRHL) on the outlet of the heat exchanger.
Once the outlet temperature exceeds the MRHL set point, the
boiler will shut down and lock out. Once the outlet temperature
has dropped below this set point, the RESET button on the LCD
display must be pressed to clear this lockout. This set point can
be adjusted by accessing parameter B8.
Space Heating (SH) Set Point
Auto Reset High Limit
The SH set point sets the water temperature set point used
during space heating calls. This parameter can be changed by
the installer by accessing parameter B3.
18
The SMART TOUCH control contains an integral Auto Reset
High Limit (ARHL) on the outlet of the heat exchanger. Once
the outlet temperature exceeds the ARHL set point, the boiler
will shut down and lock out. Once the outlet temperature has
dropped below this set point, the RESET button on the LCD
display can be pressed to reset this lockout. If RESET is not
pressed, the control will automatically reset the lockout after
five (5) minutes. This set point can be adjusted by accessing
parameter B9.

HWG Minimum User Set Point
C: Outdoor Reset
This setting controls the minimum user set point for the
tank temperature. The installer can adjust this by accessing
parameter B10.
SH Set Point at Low Outdoor Temperature
HWG Maximum User Set Point
This setting controls the maximum user set point for the
tank temperature. The installer can adjust this by accessing
parameter B11.
HWG Boiler Set Point
When a HWG call for heat becomes active, the control will
use the HWG boiler set point to determine the firing rate of
the boiler based on the boiler outlet water temperature.
This parameter can be changed by the installer by accessing
parameter B12.
HWG Boiler Offset
This parameter reflects the degrees above HWG boiler set
point the outlet temperature can go before the boiler will
shut off. This parameter can be changed by the installer by
accessing parameter B13.
HWG Boiler Differential
This parameter reflects the degrees below HWG boiler offset
the outlet temperature has to go before the boiler turns on.
This parameter can be changed by the installer by accessing
parameter B14.
When the outdoor air temperature drops to or below the
Low Outdoor Temperature setting (parameter C3), the water
temperature will be at this setting (see FIG. 1-6). However, if
the user set point is set lower, the water temperature will be
limited by the user set point instead. This parameter can be
changed by accessing parameter C1.
SH Set Point at High Outdoor Temperature
When the outdoor air temperature rises to or above the
High Outdoor Temperature setting (parameter C4), the water
temperature will be at this setting (see FIG. 1-6). This
parameter can be changed by accessing parameter C2.
Low Outdoor Temperature
When the outdoor air temperature drops to its minimum
(C3), the water temperature will be at parameter C1 (FIG.
1-6). As the outdoor temperature continues to drop, the water
temperature set point will continue to rise. However, if the
user set point is set lower, the water temperature will be limited
by the user set point instead. This parameter can be changed by
accessing parameter C3.
High Outdoor Temperature
When the outdoor air temperature rises to or above this set
point, the water temperature will be at parameter C2 (FIG.
1-6). This parameter can be changed by the installer by
accessing parameter C4.
Outdoor Air Shutdown
When the outdoor temperature rises above this point, the
control will block all SH demands (HWG demands will still
be active). This parameter can be changed by the installer by
accessing parameter C5.

Outdoor Air Shutdown Differential
Shift OA Reset Curve
The outdoor air shutdown differential parameter is the
number of degrees below parameter C5 the outdoor air
temperature must go before the boiler will respond to a SH
demand. This parameter can be changed by the installer by
accessing parameter C6.
The shift reset curve parameter shifts the actual set point above
or below the calculated set point by the number of degrees in
this parameter. This parameter can be changed by the installer
by accessing parameter C9.
Boost Time
The boost time parameter sets the amount of time that must
elapse with a SH demand before the water temperature
calculated set point will be increased. This parameter can
be changed by the installer by accessing parameter C7.
Boost Temperature
If a SH demand lasts longer than the programmed boost
time delay setting (C7) and there have been no HWG
demands, the control will increase the water temperature
set point by the amount in this parameter. If the SH
demand continues through another time period, the set
point will be increased again. This will continue until
either the SH demand ends, a maximum of 20 increases
has occurred, or the maximum set point has been reached.
Once the SH demand has been satisfied the set point will
revert back to its calculated setting. The boost temperature
can be changed by the installer by accessing parameter C8.
Figure 1-7 Ramp Delay Interval
20
D: Ramp Delay
Ramp Delay (Enable / Disable)
This parameter allows the installer to enable or disable the SH
ramp delay by accessing parameter D1.
SH Ramp Delay
The SMART TOUCH control can be programmed to limit
the firing rate for a fixed period of time at the start of a space
heating demand. There are six (6) possible limits, each with
their own time delay. The first limit applies as soon as the
burner starts. Once its time delay expires, the second limit is
applied and its timer begins. The control steps through these
limits until the 6th (sixth) limit expires. Note, however, that
the 6th limit will also limit the rate for the rest of that heat
demand. The installer can adjust the firing limits and time
delays by accessing parameters D2 through D13.

E: BMS
BMS Set Point at Maximum Volts
BMS (Active / Inactive)
When programmed for BMS control through the 0 - 10V BMS
input or through ModBus and the BMS Type is programmed as
SETPOINT, the set point represented by the Volts at Maximum
parameter (E8) is set by parameter E10.
The set point or modulation of the boiler may be controlled
through the 0 - 10V BMS input or through ModBus. When
parameter E1 set to INACTIVE, the 0 - 10V input will be
ignored. When set to ACTIVE, the set point or modulation
will be controlled by the voltage on the 0 - 10V input (in
the case of 0 - 10V BMS control), or the 0 - 10V input value
received through ModBus.
BMS Mode (Power / Set Point)
When programmed for BMS control through the 0 - 10V
BMS input or through ModBus, the 0 - 10V signal can be
interpreted as either a modulation command or a set point.
When parameter E2 is set to POWER, the 0 - 10V signal
will control the modulation. When set to SETPOINT, the
0 - 10V signal will control the SH set point.
BMS Volts to Enable
When programmed for BMS control through the 0 - 10V BMS
input or through ModBus and the BMS Enable Mode is set to
INACTIVE, parameter E11 determines the 0 - 10V BMS input
voltage at which the boiler is enabled.
Differential to Stop BMS Demand
When programmed for BMS control through the 0 - 10V BMS
input or through ModBus and the BMS Enable Mode is set to
INACTIVE, parameter E12 determines how far below the On
Volts setting E11 the 0 - 10V BMS input voltage must be in
order to disable the boiler.
BMS Volts at Minimum (Rate or Set Point)
BMS Enable Mode
When programmed for BMS control through the 0 - 10V
BMS input or through ModBus, parameters E3 or E7
should be set to the minimum voltage signal sent to the
SMART TOUCH control.
BMS Volts at Maximum (Rate or Set Point)
When programmed for BMS control through the 0 - 10V
BMS input or through ModBus, parameter E4 or E8 should
be set to the maximum voltage signal sent to the SMART
TOUCH control.
BMS Rate at Minimum Volts
When programmed for BMS control through the 0 10V BMS input or through ModBus and the BMS Type
is programmed as POWER, the modulation percentage
represented by the Volts at Minimum parameter (E3) is set
by parameter E5.
BMS Rate at Maximum Volts
When programmed for BMS control through the 0 10V BMS input or through ModBus and the BMS Type
is programmed as POWER, the modulation percentage
represented by the Volts at Maximum parameter (E4) is set
by parameter E6.
BMS Set Point at Minimum Volts
When programmed for BMS control through the 0 - 10V
BMS input or through ModBus and the BMS Type is
programmed as SETPOINT, the set point represented by
the Volts at Minimum parameter (E7) is set by parameter
E9.
When controlling the boiler through the 0 - 10V BMS input or
through ModBus, the boiler can be enabled one of two ways.
With parameter E13 set to ACTIVE, the boiler will be enabled
by closing the Enable input. When parameter E13 is set to
INACTIVE, the boiler will be enabled by the voltage level on the
0 - 10V input (in the case of 0 - 10V BMS control), or the 0 - 10V
input value received through ModBus.
F: Advanced Setup
Temperature units (°C / °F)
The control can be configured to display temperature in either
°C or °F. This parameter can be changed by the user or the
installer by accessing parameter F1.
Display Timeout (LCD Backlight Time)
This is the time in which the display remains illuminated.
This parameter can be changed by the user or the installer by
accessing parameter F2.
Freeze Protection Pump On
The SMART TOUCH control will turn on the boiler and system
pump outputs whenever the inlet temperature drops below this
setting. This is done to prevent the water in the heat exchanger
from freezing. Certain low-temperature applications (such as
snow melt) can operate at temperatures around freezing, so
this setting needs to be lowered in these cases. The installer can
adjust the temperature at which the pump outputs are turned on
by accessing parameter F3.
21
Service Manual
1
Service
Freeze Protection Burner On
HWG Rate Liming (NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME)
If running the pumps does not prevent the inlet
temperature from falling closer to freezing, the SMART
TOUCH control will fire the burner at low fire if in the ON
state. The installer can adjust the temperature at which the
burner fires by adjusting parameter F4.
This parameter determines the maximum rate to be used when
heating a HWG tank. This setting may be used when the tank
is unable to accept all of the BTU’s available from the boiler.
This parameter may be adjusted by the installer by accessing
parameter F10.
Freeze Protection Burner Differential
Once the burner has started firing due to a low inlet
temperature, the inlet temperature must increase by this
amount before the burner turns back off. The installer can
adjust this differential by accessing parameter F5.
HWG/SH Switching Time
When a boiler has a HWG demand and it receives a space
heating demand, the SMART TOUCH control will start
a timer. Once the timer expires, it will stop the HWG
demand and service the space heating demand. The
installer can adjust the length of time the boiler will service
the HWG demand by accessing parameter F6.
SH/HWG Switching Time
When a boiler has a space heating demand and it receives
a HWG demand, it will immediately switch to the HWG
demand and start a timer. Once the timer has expired,
the boiler will switch back to the space heating demand
and start another timer. Once this timer expires, it will
switch back to the HWG demand. The installer can adjust
the length of time the boiler will service the space heating
demand by accessing parameter F7.
Anti-Cycling Time
Once a SH demand has been satisfied, a set amount of time
must elapse before the control will respond to a new SH
demand. The control will block the new heat demand and
anti-cycling will be shown in the display until the time has
elapsed or the water temperature drops below parameter
F9. This parameter can be changed by the installer by
accessing parameter F8.
Anti-Cycling Differential
The control will bypass the anti-cycling time if the inlet
water temperature drops too much. The control will use
the inlet water temperature at the time the boiler shut off
as the starting point. If the inlet temperature drops below
this temperature parameter the control will abort anticycling and allow the boiler to fire. This parameter can be
changed by the installer by accessing parameter F9.
22
Service Mode Timeout
The Service Mode allows the installer to set the unit to any firing
rate for the purpose of combustion analysis. The delay sets the
length of time the boiler will stay in the Service Mode if no keys
have been pressed before going back to its original state. This
parameter can only be changed by the installer by accessing
parameter F11.
Controlling Sensor
The SH controlling sensor parameter selects the sensor the
control will use to regulate the boiler firing rate. This parameter
is adjustable by the installer by accessing parameter F12. The
sensor selections are as follows: The outlet sensor regulates the
firing rate based on the outlet water temperature of the boiler
and the inlet sensor regulates the firing rate based on the inlet
water temperature of the boiler. If the outlet sensor is selected,
and the optional system supply sensor is connected, the control
will regulate the firing rate based on the system supply sensor
temperature.
Inlet Control Time Delay
When the inlet sensor is selected as the controlling sensor, the
SMART TOUCH control will start by controlling the outlet/
system supply temperature to the SH set point. After a time
delay, the control will start to increase and regulate the system
supply temperature in order to maintain the inlet/system return
temperature to the SH set point. This time delay should be long
enough for the heated water to work its way through the system
loop and be measured by the inlet/system return sensor. This
time delay is adjustable by the installer by accessing parameter
F13.
G/H: SH/HWG Night Setback
The installer may adjust the space heating night setback offset
by accessing parameter G1 and the HWG night setback offset by
accessing parameter H1.
Once the internal clock has been set correctly, the SH night
setback feature can be used to program a lower set point. The
value of this parameter will be subtracted from the normal set
point to determine the set point used during night setback.
This parameter can be changed by the user or the installer by
accessing parameters G2 through G15 and H2 through H15.
The temperature range for this parameter is 0°F to 90°F (50°C).
The feature is turned off with a setting of 0°F.

(continued)
I: ModBus
Cascade Off-On Differential
ModBus (Active / Inactive)
This parameter determines how much the temperature must
go below the turn off temperature (Set point + Offset) before
the lead boiler turns on. This parameter can be adjusted by the
installer by accessing parameter J4.
When BMS is set to ACTIVE (see BMS Active / Inactive)
and the boiler is being controlled through ModBus, set
parameter I1 to ACTIVE. Otherwise, set the ModBus
parameter to INACTIVE. Note that the boiler can still
be monitored by ModBus with this parameter set to
INACTIVE.
ModBus Out of Order Timer
When the boiler is being provided with certain commands
and temperatures through ModBus, this information must
be updated frequently. If it is not updated before this
timer expires, the boiler will revert back to its own internal
readings and control. This parameter is adjustable by the
installer by accessing parameter I2.
J: Cascade
Cascade Active / Inactive
The boiler is part of a group of units sequenced together. The
designated Leader unit determines the total output needed
from the group based on the set point and controlling
sensor reading. It assigns portions of the output to itself
(Leader) and the Member units. When Cascade is active,
each boiler in the group requires a unique address. This
setting is adjustable by the installer by accessing parameter
J1.
Cascade Address
The boiler designated as the Leader needs to be programmed
with address 0. All the Member boilers require addresses
from 1 to 7, and the addresses must be different for each
Member. The addresses can be in any order, regardless
of the order in which the units are wired together. This
parameter is adjustable by the installer by accessing
parameter J2. The outdoor air (if used) and system supply
sensor must be connected to the Leader boiler.
Cascade Offset
Maximum Boiler Set Point for Cascade
This parameter determines the set point used by the individual
boilers in a Cascade. When a boiler is commanded to fire by
the Leader boiler, it will attempt to achieve this temperature
at its outlet. If any of the boiler outlet temperatures reach the
maximum cascade set point, the boiler will then modulate
down on its own in order to keep its outlet temperature within
the maximum cascade set point. Therefore, this parameter
can be used to limit the outlet temperatures of all the boilers
in a Cascade. Note that this parameter does not apply when
the boiler is heating an indirect HWG tank. This parameter is
adjustable by the installer by accessing parameter J5.
Cascade Type
The Cascade divider method is Efficiency Optimization,
designated as EFF in the menu. This method is used, as the
name implies, when it is desired to have the most efficient
system. When the first boiler reaches a certain rate (default =
80%), it lowers its rate to 40% and turns on the next boiler at
40%. The two (2) boilers then modulate at the same rate. As
the calculated load increases further and both boilers ramp up
to 80%, it lowers the rate of the first two (2) boilers to 53%
and brings the next boiler on at 53%. The three (3) boilers
then modulate together. As the calculated load decreases, the
boilers will reach a lower threshold (default = 10%), at which
time the last boiler (the third in our example) will turn off and
the Cascade will increase the rates of the remaining boilers to
provide the equivalent total output as before ((3 x 10%) / 2 =
15% in our example). This parameter can be adjusted by the
installer by accessing parameter J6.
Minimum On/Off Time
In order to prevent units in a Cascade from short cycling, this
parameter defines the minimum ON and OFF time for each
unit. The installer can adjust this time by accessing parameter
J7.
This parameter determines how much the temperature
can go above set point before the lead boiler will turn off.
This parameter can be adjusted by the installer by accessing
parameter J3.
23
Service Manual
1
Service
Minimum Next On Time
System Pump Mode
In order to reduce the risk of temperature overshoot with
a Cascade, this parameter defines the minimum time
delay from starting one unit until the next unit may be
started. The installer can adjust this time delay by accessing
parameter J8.
The SMART TOUCH control is able to control the system
pump in 5 different ways. The options are as follows:
Rate % to Switch on Next Boiler
When the Cascade is programmed in the Efficiency
Optimization Mode, the currently running boilers must
ramp up to a certain firing rate before the next boiler in
the Cascade will start. This percentage can be adjusted by
accessing parameter J9.
Rate % to Switch off Last Boiler
When the Cascade is programmed in the Efficiency
Optimization Mode, the currently running boiler will stop.
This percentage can be adjusted by accessing parameter
J10.
Number of Boiler Pumps Always On
When multiple Crest boilers are connected in a Cascade,
the SMART TOUCH control can keep a minimum number
of the boiler pumps running, regardless of how many of the
boilers are firing. This is useful in full flow systems where
the system flow is provided by the individual boiler pumps.
This number can be adjusted by accessing parameter J11.

accessing parameter K7.
HWG Pump Anti-Seize Delay
If the boiler pump does not run for 24 hours, it will be turned
on briefly to prevent it from seizing. The length of time it runs
is determined by parameter K8.
ΔT Set Point
The SMART TOUCH control includes a 0 - 10Vdc output for
controlling the speed of a variable speed boiler pump. The
speed is regulated in order to, among other things, maintain a
minimum delta T across the heat exchanger. This helps reduce
the electrical consumption of the boiler pump when the boiler
is firing at less than its maximum rate. (This feature is active
only when a system supply sensor is installed). This set point
can be adjusted by accessing parameter K9.

 WARNING
 WARNING
Safety relief valves should be re-inspected
AT LEAST ONCE EVERY THREE YEARS,
by a licensed plumbing contractor or
authorized inspection agency, to ensure
that the product has not been affected by
corrosive water conditions and to ensure
that the valve and discharge line have not
been altered or tampered with illegally.
Certain naturally occurring conditions
may corrode the valve or its components
over time, rendering the valve inoperative.
Such conditions are not detectable unless
the valve and its components are physically
removed and inspected. This inspection
must only be conducted by a plumbing
contractor or authorized inspection
agency – not by the owner. Failure to
re-inspect the boiler relief valve as directed
could result in unsafe pressure buildup,
which can result in severe personal injury,
death, or substantial property damage.
 WARNING
Following installation, the valve lever
must be operated AT LEAST ONCE
A YEAR to ensure that waterways are
clear.
Certain naturally occurring
mineral deposits may adhere to the valve,
rendering it inoperative. When manually
operating the lever, water will discharge
and precautions must be taken to avoid
contact with hot water and to avoid water
damage. Before operating lever, check
to see that a discharge line is connected
to this valve directing the flow of hot
water from the valve to a proper place of
disposal. Otherwise severe personal injury
may result. If no water flows, valve is
inoperative. Shut down the boiler until a
new relief valve has been installed.
Failure to inspect for the above conditions
and have them repaired can result in
severe personal injury or death.
Check water system
1. Verify all system components are correctly installed and
operational.
2. Check the cold fill pressure for the system. Verify it is
correct (must be a minimum of 12 psi (82.7 kPa)).
3. Watch the system pressure as the boiler heats up (during
testing) to ensure pressure does not rise too high.
Excessive pressure rise indicates expansion tank sizing or
performance problem.
4. Inspect automatic air vents and air separators. Remove
air vent caps and briefly press push valve to flush vent.
Replace caps. Make sure vents do not leak. Replace any
leaking vents.
Check expansion tank
1. Expansion tanks provide space for water to move in
and out as the heating system water expands due to
temperature increase or contracts as the water cools.
Tanks may be open, closed or diaphragm or bladder type.
See Section 5 - Hydronic Piping of the Crest Installation
and Operation Manual for suggested best location of
expansion tanks and air eliminators.
Check boiler relief valve
1. Inspect the relief valve and lift the lever to verify flow.
Before operating any relief valve, ensure that it is piped
with its discharge in a safe area to avoid severe scald
potential. Read Section 5 - Hydronic Piping of the Crest
Installation and Operation Manual before proceeding
further.
2. After following the above warning directions, if the relief
valve weeps or will not seat properly, replace the relief
valve. Ensure that the reason for relief valve weeping is
the valve and not over-pressurization of the system due
to expansion tank waterlogging or undersizing.

• If 120 vac is present at the main control board, check
the wiring between the main control board and the gas
valve. Replace the wiring if necessary. Do not
disconnect the wiring from the gas valve and attempt to
measure voltage at that point. The main control board
can detect if the gas valve is not connected and will
display the Gas Valve / Connection fault.
• If 120 vac is present, check the outlet of the valve to
ensure the valve is flowing gas. With a manometer
connected to the outlet tap of the gas valve, when the
unit is in the prepurge period, there should be a
negative pressure present.
When the valve is
energized a change in pressure should occur. If the
pressure change does not occur, the gas valve is not
opening. Replace the gas valve.

Combustion Analysis
Procedure
1. Turn the main power off to the boiler by placing
the “On/Off” switch in the OFF position.
2. Remove the flue temperature sensor from the
flue collector. Note: Combustion measurements
will be made at this point.
3. Turn the main power on to the boiler by placing
the “On/Off” switch in the ON position.
4. Navigate to the Service Screen from the Home
Screen by pressing the MAIN MENU button and
then the SERVICE button.
5. On the Service Screen place heater into Service
Mode by selecting the START button, then
selecting Set Gas Valve 1 - High.
6. Insert the probe from a combustion analyzer
into the hole left by the removal of the flue
temperature sensor.
7. Once the heat exchanger has modulated up
to rate, measure the combustion. The values
should be in the range listed in Table 3I. CO
levels should be less than 200 ppm for a properly
installed unit. If the combustion is not within
range reference the Troubleshooting Chart below
for possible causes and corrective actions.

5.6% - 7.1% 9.4% - 11.0% 4.1% - 6.6%
8. After Gas Valve 1 is set, repeat the same procedure for the second
gas train by selecting Set Gas Valve 2 - High on the Service Screen.
9. Once the heater analysis is complete, test the safety shutoff device
by turning the manual shutoff valve to the OFF position and
ensuring that the heater shuts down and registers an alarm. Open
the manual shutoff valve and reset the control.
10. Turn the main power off to the boiler and replace the
flue temperature sensor into the flue pipe connection.
11. Place the boiler back into normal operation.
 WARNING
You must replace the flue gas temperature sensor
to prevent flue gas spillage into the room. Failure
to comply could result in severe personal injury,
death, or substantial property damage.

Gas valve adjustment procedure
CAUTION
Figure 3-3 Gas Valve Adjustment: Model 2.5
Under normal operating conditions this
valve should not need adjusting.
Locate the throttle adjustment screw on the gas valve. For
Models 1.5 and 2.0 see FIG. 3-2, for Model 2.5 see FIG.
3-3 and for Models 3.0 and 3.5 see FIG. 3-4. Using a
screwdriver, turn the screw a 1/4 turn counterclockwise
to increase CO2 levels or a 1/4 turn clockwise to decrease
CO2 levels. After one adjustment on the valve, follow the
Combustion Analysis Procedure on page 52 of this manual
to measure the combustion.
If combustion is still not within the specified range,
repeat the procedure. This procedure SHOULD NOT
be performed more than four (4) times. If after four (4)
adjustments and the combustion is still not within the
specified range, revisit the possible causes in Table 3H on
page 52 or replace the gas valve.
