READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS
1) Installation
1a)
K-Star Heater may be installed indoors or outdoors with clearance
of at least 6’away from water and minimum of 6” clearance from
any object.
Ensure that the installation allows access for electrical and
plumbing connections and that the Thermostat is conveniently
located (facing front).
Winterization:
rst turn the thermostat to the off position and
switch off the electric power at the circuit breaker. Then completely
empty the tank by removing the drain plug located at the bottom of the
heater body. Drain plug must be left out all winter. Cover the control
panel of the heater with ordinary plastic cover to prevent any penetration
of moisture or water into electrical components. At all times the unit
must be properly ventilated to avoid condensation.
The installation of current leakage collectors should be done (as
shown in Figure 01) before permanently positioning Heater.
Heater must be installed after the filter and before the Air Injector
or Automatic Chlorinator.
A leakage current collector must be installed at the water inlet, and
at the water outlet of the unit.
Leakage current collectors shall be grounded properly to the
unit. The installation of the collectors shall be such, that all
ows through the two current
collectors (as shown in Figure 01). The length of the leakage
current collectors shall be made of a corrosion resistant metal and
shall be provided with a copper lug brazed to the collector body.
Hand tighten only. Do not use high force with a pipe wrench.

The “lock” condition is part of the security/safety feature of this heater
and it is to ensure, that user will physically check the thermostat unit
and verify the unit is in optimal operating condition before turning the
Heater back on.
1b)
The Heater shall be installed as per Figure 02.The water inlet and
outlets are connected to straight pipe connectors of the heater.
SHOWING BY PASS
FIGURE 02.
4) HIGH LIMIT RESET
1)
A high limit manual reset thermostat is provided as a secondary
back up high temperature limit protection. The reset thermostat
may trip if the pump is switched off meaning no water flow to
heater.
a. to reset, switch the heater breaker off. Allow the heater to cool
and then depress the high limit (as shown in Figure 04).
Caution:
FIGURE 04. HIGH LIMIT RESET THERMOSTAT (LOCATED UNDERNEATH).
i.
Do not store chlorine near or in the same room as heater.
ii.
Valves must not be installed in the piping on the outlet of heater to
the pool/spa.
iii. Use Teflon Tape for connecting leakage current collectors into tank
body and use Teflon tape as sealer in the threads for drain plug.
The water flow in GPM should not exceed the following limits:

Notes:
Heater will show “OFF” on display, if temperature is below
the lowest set point (70 degree. F / 20 degree. C). Therefore
the heater is in the off-position. Start to follow point 3 for Pool
or Spa application to turn heater on and to set it to desired
temperature.
4)
Important:
Systems with higher GPM ratings will require a bypass around Heater or
2 way valve to reduce water flow if required. This would be necessary if
a high velocity pump is employed in the system.
ERROR Codes – Digital Thermostat
“PSI” (Pressure Switch)
LOW or NO water pressure is detected; “PSI” needs to be
adjusted by turning small wheel on Pressure Switch up or
down. Up = increases water pressure; Down = decreases
water pressure.
Recommended:
“LO”
Low water temperature is detected; meaning that the
temperature is below the range of the thermostat. Heater is
still running. Follow point 3 instructions to correct this error
code.
Add water softener for longer heater life.
2) Electrical
2a)
2b)
Work must be performed by a qualified Electrician and comply with
the Canadian Electrical Code or the American National Standard
Electrical Code.

“HI” (HAUT) + “LOC”
High water temperature is detected; meaning that the water
temperature goes above the range of the thermostat (see point
3 for highest temperature setting). The Heater will turn OFF
for safety. The display will show “HI “until the temperature
decreases to the original programmed temperature setting
(customer’s setting).
As a built-in safety feature, the heater will automatically go into
“lock” mode, once the programmed temperature has been
reached. This is to avoid any manual temperature adjustments
at that time.

The display will now show “LOC” and the heater is turned
OFF.
The thermostat will remain in this condition (OFF) even if
power is turned off and on again.
To clear the lock (LOC) condition, press the UP or DOWN
button (to decrease or increase desired temperature) .

-
A green coloured terminal (or a wire connector marked “C”, “GP”.
“Ground” or “Grounding”) is provided within the control box. To
reduce the risk of electric shock, connect this terminal or connector
to the grounding terminal of the electric service or supply panel with a
continuous green insulated copper wire equivalent in size to the circuit
conductors supplying this equipment. Additional bonding lugs are
provided and marked “Bonding Lugs”. To reduce the risks of electric
shock connect the bonding lugs in accordance with the Canadian
Electric Code.
-
It is mandatory that all Electrical Heaters be installed with Leakage
Collectors as per Figure 02.

3) Operating Instructions
Must be strictly followed for warranty to be valid.
Before starting the heater, activate the pump and make sure that the air
is out of the heater chamber (Tank). Water circulation (Pump) must be on
at all times when unit is running.
3a)
Digital Thermostat Operating Instructions
At start up, the display will show the actual water temperature or
“OFF”.
1)
Selecting temperature SCALE (choose F – Fahrenheit or
C – Celsius)
1a) to access the temperature SCale selection the unit has to
be in Set point mode (showing either “OFF” or decimal
points “---“).
1b) Press and hold POOL/SPA button for three seconds
and release when the display shows “SC“(for Scale).
The display will show “SC “for one second. Press UP or
DOWN button to toggle between Celsius and Fahrenheit
mode. Choose the scale setting to read: “C “for Celsius or
“F“for Fahrenheit.
1c) Press POOL/SPA button to accept your choice.
Warning:
Ensure that the unit is properly grounded at the provided lug within the
unit and that the leakage collectors are separately grounded at the back
of the unit (marked “BONDING LUGS”). Improper installation may be a
potential cause of fire, electric shock, personal injury or health hazards
and great care should be taken to avoid these. Make sure that all wiring
is secure.
