Precautions
_,WARNING
J
HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK! Before removing
any access panels or servicing the water heater, make J
sure the electrical supply to the water heater is turned
"OFF". Failure to do this could result in DEATH, SERIOUS BOD LY NJURY,OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.
_,WARNING
J
Improper installation, adjustment, alteration, service or
maintenancecan cause DEATH, SERIOUS BODILY INJURY,J
OR PROPERTY DAMAGE. Refer to this manual for assistance or consult your localSearsService Center for further
information.
AWARNING
HOTTER WATER CAN SCALD: Water heaters are
intended to produce hot water. Water heated to a temperature which will satisfyspaceheating, clothes washing,
dish washing, and other sanitizing needs can scald and
_ermanently injure you upon contact. Some people are
more likely to be permanently injured by hot water than
others. These include the elderly, children, the infirm, or
physically/mentally handicapped. If anyone using hot
water in your home fits into one of these groups or if
there is a local code or state law requiring a certain temperature water at the hot water tap, then you must take
special precautions. In addition to using the lowest possible temperature setting that satisfies your hot water
needs, a means such as a mixing valve, shall be used at
the hot water taps used by these people or at the water
heater. Mixing valves are available at plumbing supply or
hardware stores. Follow manufacturers instructions for
installation of the valves. Before changingthe factory setting on the thermostat,
read the "Temperature
Regulation"section in this manual.
_WARNING
At the time of manufacture this water heater was provided
with a combination temperature*pressures 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 Shutoff Devices for Hot Water Supply
Systems, and the current edition of ANSI Z21.22 • CSA 4.4
and the code requirements of ASME. If replaced, the valve
must meet the requirements of local codes, but not lessthan a
combination temperature and pressure relief valve certified as
meeting the requirements for Relief Valves and Automatic
Gas Shutoff Devices for Hot Water Supply Systems, ANSI
Z21.22 • CSA 4.4 by a nationally recognized testing laboratory
that maintains periodic inspection of production of listed
equipment or materials.
The valve must be marked with a maximum set pressure not
to exceed the marked hydrostatic working pressure of the
water heater (150 Ibs. p.s.i.) and a discharge capacity not less
than the water heater input rate as shown on the model rating
plate. (Electric heaters - watts divided by 1000 x 3412 equal
BTU/Hr. rate.)
Your local jurisdictional authority, while mandating the use of
a temperature-pressure
relief valve complying with ANSI
Z21.22 • CSA 4.4 and ASME, may require a valve model different from the one furnished with the water heater.
Compliance with such local requirements must be satisfied by
the installer or end user of the water heater with a locally
wescribed temperature-pressure relief valve installed in the
designated opening in the water heater in place of the factory
furnished valve.
For safe operation of the water heater, the relief valve must
not be removed from it's designated opening or plugged.
The temperature-pressure
relief valve must be installed
directly into the fitting of the water heater designated for the
relief valve. Position the valve downward and provide tubing so
that any discharge will exit only within 6 inches above, or at
any distance below the structural floor. Be certain that no contact is made with any live electrical part. The discharge opening must not be blocked or reduced in size under any circumstances. Excessive length, over 30 feet, or use of more than
four elbows can cause restriction and reduce the discharge
capacity of the valve.
No valve or other obstruction is to be placed between the
relief valve and the tank. Do not connect tubing directly to discharge drain unlessa 6" air gap is provided. To prevent bodily
injury, hazard to life, or property damage, the relief valve must
be allowed to discharge water in quantities should circumstances demand. If the discharge pipe is not connected to a
drain or other suitable means, the water flow may cause preperty damage.
The Discharge Pipe:
• Must not be smaller in size than the outlet pipe size of the
valve, or haveany reducing couplingsor other restrictions.
• Must not be plugged or blocked.
• Must be of material listed for hot water distribution.
• Must be installed so as to allow complete drainage of both
the temperature-pressure relief valve, and the discharge
pipe.
• Must terminate at an adequate drain.
• Must not have any valve between the relief valve and tank.

If you have copper piping to the water
heater, the two copper water pipes can be
cut with a hacksaw approximately 4" away
from where they connect to the water
heater. This will avoid cutting off the pipes
too short. Additional cuts can be made
later if necessary. Disconnect the temperature-pressure relief valve drain line. When
the water heater is drained, disconnect the
hose from the drain valve. Close the drain
valve. The water heater is now completely
disconnected and ready to be removed.
QTurn
"OFF" the water supply to the
water heater at the water shutoffvalve or
water meter.
Qb.
Q
Attach a hose to the water heater drain
valve and put the other end in a floor
drain or outdoors. Open the water
heater drain valve. Open a nearby hot
water faucet which will relieve pressure
in the water heater and speed draining.
If you have galvanized pipe to the water
heater, loosen the two galvanized pipes
with a pipe wrench at the union in each
line. Also disconnect the piping remaining
to the water heater. These pieces should be
saved since they may be needed when
reconnecting
the new water heater.
Disconnect the temperature-pressure relief
valve drain line. When the water heater is
drained, disconnect the hose from the
drain valve. Close the drain valve. The
water heater is now completely disconnected and ready to be removed.
AWARNING
The water passing out of the drain valve may be
extremely hot. To avoid being scalded, make sure all connections are tight and that the water flow is directed
away from any person.
Q
Check again to make sure the electrical supply is
turned "OFF" to the water heater. Then disconnect
the electrical supply connection from the water
heater junction box.
CAUTION
Mineral buildup or sediment may have accumulated in
the old water heater. This causesthe water heater to be
much heavier than normal and this residue, if spilled out,
could causestaining.

Facts to Consider About the
Location
Facts to Consider About the
Convertible Lower Element
You should carefully choose an indoor location for the new water
heater, because the placement is a very important consideration
for the safety of the occupants in the building and for the most
economical use of the appliance. This water heater is not intended for outdoor installation.
The Upper Element (if a double element model), is a conventional 3800 watt element which only operates at its rated
wattage on 240 volts. (See rating plate on water heater).
Whether replacing an old water heater or putting the water
heater in a new location, the following critical points must be
observed.
• The location selected should be indoors as close to and as centralized with the water piping system as possible. This water
heater, as well as all water heaters, will eventually leak. Do not
install without adequate drainage provisions where water flow
will cause damage.
A CAUTION
WATER HEATERS EVENTUALLY LEAK: Installation of
the water heater must be accomplished in such a manner that if the tank or any connections should leak, the
flow of water will not cause damage to the structure.
When such locations cannot be avoided, a suitable drain
pan should be installed under the water heater. Drain
pans are availableat your local Searsstores. Such a drain
pan must be piped to an adequate drain.
The Lower Element of the water heater can be converted from
operation at 3800 watts to 5500 watts on a 240 volt system.
Read and follow water heater warnings and instructions.If after
reading these instructions in this manual, if you do not understand any portion, call Sears Service Center.
AWARNING
Before making the conversion to 5500 watts, check the
(I) power supply...must
be 240 volts, (2) wiring...10
gauge AWG, Type TW, 60°C or equivalent,
and (3)
Circuit breakers or fusing...capable of 30 amp loading.
Also, the installation must conform with this manual,
local codes and electric utility rules. Failure to comply
can result in DEATH, SERIOUS BODILY INJURY, OR
PROPERTY DAMAGE.
INSTALLATION
IN RESIDENTIAL GARAGES: The
water heater must be located
and/or protected so it is I
CAUTION
not subjectto physicaldamage by a moving vehicle.
• The location selection must provide adequate clearances for
servicing and proper operation of the water heater.
NOTE: Whether or not the element conversion is made the
model rating plate must be marked. Using a hard point ink
pen, check the appropriate block within the model rating
plate, which is located adjacent to the lower access panel.

If a water heater is installed in a closed water supply system; such as
one having a back-flow preventer, check valve, water meter with a
check valve, etc. in the cold water supply; means shall be provided to
control thermal expansion. Contact the local utility or Sears Service
Center on how to control this situation.
NOTE: If using copper tubing, solder tubing to an adapter
before attaching the adapter to the cold water inlet connection.
Do not solder the cold water supply line directly to the cold
water inlet. It wRl harm the dip tube and damage the tank.
• Look at the top cover of the water heater. The hot water outlet is
marked hot. Put two or three turns of teflon tape around the
threaded end of the threaded-to-sweat coupling and around both
ends of the _" dlreaded nipple. Using flexible connectors, connect
the hot water pipe to the hot water outlet of the water heater.
• Look at the top cover of the water heater. The cold water inlet is
marked cold. Put two or three turns of teflon tape around the
threaded end of the threaded-to-sweat coupling and around both
ends of the _" threaded nipple. Using flexible connectors, connect
the cold water pipe to the cold water inlet of the water heater.
NOTE: Yourwater heater is insulated to minimize heat loss from
the tank. Further reduction in heat loss can be accomplished by
insulating the hot water lines from the water heater.

Relief Valve
&WARNING
The temperature-pressure relief valve must be manually
operated at least once a year. Caution shouldbe taken to
ensure that (I) no one is in front of or around the outlet
of the temperature-pressure relief valve discharge line,
and (2) the water manually dischargedwill not causeany
bodily injury or property damage becausethe water may
be extremely hot.
If after manually operating the valve, it fails to completely reset and continues to release water, immediately,
close the cold water inlet to the water heater, follow the
draining instructions, and replace the temperature-pressure relief valve with a new one.
_,WARNING
At the time of manufacture this water heater was provided
with a combination temperature-pressuras relief valve certiffed 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 Shutoff Devices for Hot Water
Supply Systems, and the current edition of ANSI Z21.22 ,
CSA 4.4 and the code requirements of ASHE. If replaced,
the valve must meet the requirements
of local codes, but
not less than a combination temperature
and pressure
relief valve certified as meeting the requirements for Relief
Valves and Automatic Gas Shutoff Devices for Hot Water
Supply Systems, ANSI Z21.22, CSA 4.4 by a nationally recognized testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection of production of listed equipment or materials.
The valve must be marked with a maximum set pressure
not to exceed the marked hydrostatic working pressure of
the water heater (150 Ibs. p.s.i.) and a discharge capacity
not less than the water heater input rate as shown on the
model rating plate. (Electric heaters - watts divided by 1000

Anode
Rod Inspection
The anode rod is used to protect the tank from corrosion. Most
hot water tanks are equipped with an anode rod. The submerged rod sacrifices itself to protect the tank. Instead of corroding the tank, water ions attack and eat away the anode rod.
This does not aftect the water's taste or color. The rod must be
maintained to keep the tank in operating condition.
Service
Before calling for repair service, read the Start Up Conditions
and Operational Conditions found in the Troubleshooting
Guide of this manual.
If a condition persists or you are uncertain about the operation
of the water heater, let a qualified person check it out.
Anode deterioration depends on water conductivity, not necessarily water condition. A corroded or pitted anode rod indicates
high water conductivity and should be checked and/or replaced
more often than an anode rod that appears to be intact.
Replacement of a depleted anode rod can extend the life of your
water heater. Inspection should be conducted by a Sears service
technician, and at a minimum should be checked annually after
the warranty period.

Water supply systems may, because of such events as high line
pressure, frequent cut-off_, the effects of water hammer among
others, have installed devices such as pressure reducing valves,
check valves, back flow preventers, etc.-to control these types of
_roblems. When these devices are not equipped with an internal
y-pass, and no other measures are taken, the devices cause the
water system to be dosed. As water is heated, it expands (thermal expansion) and closed systems do not allow for the expansion of heated water.

RECOMMENDED INSTALLATION
(VERTICAL MOUNTING)
It is recommended that any devices installed which could create a
closed system have a by-pass and/or the system have an expansion tank to relieve the pressure built by thermal expansion.
Thermal expansion tanks are available from Sears stores and
through the Sears Service Centers. Contact the local plumbing
inspector, water supplier and/or the Sears Service Center for
assistance in controlling these situations.
Expansion

The water within the water heater tank expands as it is heated and
increases the pressure of the water system. If the relieving point of
the water heater's temperature-pressure
relief valve is reached, the
valve will relieve the excess pressure. The temperature-pressure
relief valve is not intended for the constant relief of thermal
expansion. This is an unacceptable condition and must be corrected.

parts section) for corrosion protection of the tank. Certain water
conditions will cause a reaction between this rod and the water.
The most common complaint associated with the anode rod is
one of a "rotten egg smell". This odor is derived from hydrogen
sulfide gas dissolved in the water. The smell is the result of four
factors which must all be present for the odor to develop:
a. a concentration
of sulfate in the supply water.
b. little or no dissolved oxygen in the water.
c. a sulfate reducing bacteria within the water heater. (This
harmless bacteria is non-toxic to humans.)
d. an excess of active hydrogen in the tank. This is caused by
the corrosion protective action of the anode.
NOISE
In some water areas, scale or mineral deposits will build up on
your heating elements. This buildup will cause a rumbling noise.
Follow "Element Cleaning/Replacement" instructions to clean
and replace the elements.
HIGH
TEMPERATURE
SHUT
OFF
SYSTEM
The water heater has a high limit shut off"system with a reset
button located on the thermostat.
Follow the resetting instructions
behind the access panel.
Smelly water may be eliminated or reduced in some water heater
models by replacing the anode(s) with one of less active material,
and then chlorinating the water heater tank and all hot water
lines. Contact the local Sears Service Center for further information concerning an Anode Replacement Kit #9001453 and this
Chlorination Treatment.
which
refer to the high limit
NOTE: If your water heater is connected to an "OFF PEAK"
clock, and uses the "3 wire lead" wiring diagram
in the
"W'tring Diagram" section, then the water heater will have a
hi-limit on both the upper and lower thermostats.
Follow
the instructions
to reset the hi-limit behind the upper and
lower access panels.
If the smelly water persists after the anode replacement and chlorination treatment, we can only suggest that continuous chlorination and filtering conditioning
equipment
be considered to
eliminate the waterproblem.
• Before beginning, turn "OFF" electrical power supply to the
water heater.
Do not remove the anode leaving the tank unprotected. By
doing so, all warranty on the water heater tank is voided.
"AIR"
IN HOT
WATER
FAUCETS
AWARNING
HYDROGEN GAS: Hydrogen gas can be produced in a
hot water system that has not been used for a long period of time (generally two weeks or more). Hydrogen gas
is extremely flammable and explosive. To prevent the
possibility of injury under these conditions, we recommend the hot water faucet be opened for several minutes at the kitchen sink before any electrical appliances
which are connected to the hot water system are used
(such as a dishwasher or washing machine). If hydrogen
gas is present, there will probably be an unusual sound
similar to air escapingthrough the pipe as the hot water
faucet is opened. There must be no smoking or open
flame near the faucet at the time it is open.
AWARNING
HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK! Before removing
any access panels or servicing the water heater, make
sure the electrical supply to the water heater is turned
"OFF". Failure to do this could result in DEATH, SERIOUS BODILY INJURY,OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.

• If you had experienced very hot water and now no hot water,
the problem may be due to the high temperature shut off'system. See "High Temperature Shut Off" System" in the
"Troubleshooting" section.
• Replace the insulation block and pad so that it completely
covers the thermostat and element.
• Replace the access panel.
• During very cold weather, the incoming water will also be
colder and it will require a longer time to become heated.
• "lhrn "ON" electric power to the water heater.
• The hot water usage may exceed the capacity of the water
heater. If so, wait for water heater to recover after abnormal
demand. Also examine pipes and faucets for possible water
leaks.

Leakage Checkpoints
Use this guide to check a "Leaking" water heater. Many suspected "Leakers" are not leaking tanks. Often the source of the water
can be found and corrected.
A CAUTION
Read this manual first, then before checking the water
heater make sure the electric supply has been turned
"OFF", and never turn the electric supply "ON" before
the tank iscompletely full of water.
If you are not thoroughly familiar with electric codes, the water
heater, and safety practices, contact your local Sears Service
Center to check the water heater.
