THIS MANUAL FOR ASSISTANCE OR CONSULT THE LOCAL ELECTRIC UTILITY FOR

FURTHER INFORMATION.

WARNING

HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK! BEFORE REMOVING THE COVER 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. NOTE: UNIT HAS MULTIPLE ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS.

I. MOUNTING THE UNIT

1) The unit should be mounted as close to the point of use as possible.

Do not install the heater above a faucet or “point of use” because the siphoning effect may drain the heater which can cause premature element burn out. If the unit must be installed at a higher elevation, you must install spring loaded check valves on both the inlet and outlet of the water heater.

2) This unit must only be mounted in a vertical position with the water fittings positioned at

the bottom of the unit. Mounting other than in the vertical position will cause element burn out and permanent damage to the water heater.

3) The cold water inlet is on the right hand side and the hot water outlet is on the left hand side as marked by the fittings of the unit. Under NO circumstances can these be reversed.

4) Leave a minimum of 8” above the unit for easy replacement of the element.

5) The heater should be fixed to the wall using all four mounting holes of the backplate.

Use an appropriate fastener for the weight. For the unit to be mounted against hollow walls, we suggest using steel wall anchors with the correct grip range, and #10-32 screws at a minimum.

NOTE: The heater should be installed below the level of all hot water outlets serviced by this heater. Otherwise install spring loaded check valves on both the inlet and outlet.

NOTE: PRESSURE AND TEMPERATURE RELIEF VALVE

These units are not required by UL to have a Pressure and Temperature Relief

Valve (PTRV). You should check with local codes to find out if one is required in your area. If local codes require the use of a temperature and pressure relief valve it should be installed on the outlet hot water pipe before the outlet ball valve.

II. PLUMBING HOOK-UP

1) The unit is supplied with ¾’’ NPT fittings (Figure 3), USE THESE. DO NOT USE

PIPE DOPE AND DO NOT SOLDER TO THE INLET OR OUTLET.

2) Take care to ensure that the pipes are correctly aligned with the inlet and outlet bosses in order to avoid excessive stress on the heater body molding.

NOTE: When soldering pipe joints remove heater from the wall. Serious damage can occur if any soldering is done while pipes are connected to the heater.

When tighten the fittings make sure to secure the fitting inside the heater to make a tight connection.

Run water through the supply pipe to remove all debris from the pipe before connecting the heater. Failure to do so could cause damage to the flow switch.

3) Install isolating valves (full flow ball valve type) on both inlet and outlet pipes. This allows unit to be isolated for maintenance purposes. (Fig. 1B)

4) When all plumbing is complete, fully check the system for water leaks at all the plumbing connections. If a leak is present take corrective action. Fully open both inlet and outlet

BALL VALVES.

Run all the hot water outlets fed by this heater one at a time, for a minute or two, until the water flow is continuous, free from “gulping” and from all visible air pockets.

DANGER

FAILURE TO GROUND THE SYSTEM MAY RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY.

IV COMMISSIONING YOUR HEATER

IMPORTANT

BEFORE SWITCHING “ON” THE POWER AT THE MAIN CIRCUIT BREAKER PANEL

MAKE SURE THAT THE HOT WATER CIRCUIT IS FREE OF AIR POCKETS OR ELSE

PREMATURE FAILURE OF THE ELEMENT WILL OCCUR. TO DO THIS OPEN ALL HOT

WATER OUTLETS ONE AT A TIME FOR A MINUTE OR TWO UNTIL THE WATER FLOW

IS CONTINUOUS AND FREE FROM “GULPING” AND FREE FROM VISIBLE AIR POCKETS.

1) Open fully both inlet and outlet valves at the heater.

2) Open any hot water outlet in the system. If the outlet is a “single lever” mixer type turn to the hottest position. Run for one minute to clear all the air from the system.

3) Slowly close OUTLET ball valve until the water flow from the faucet just starts to reduce.

NOTE: This process has two effects. One, any air in the system will be purged out. Two, the heater units will be pressurized at the supply pressure. This will prevent the elements free from air pockets while energized

4) At this point you may energize the hot water heater. (Note: Unit has 3 separate circuit breakers). Once energized the Thermostatic control touch pad display on the front cover will illuminate. This is where and when you will program your desired temperature. (figure 6 below)

NOTE

Unit will display the programmed temperature, not the actual outlet temperature

140 F

F/C

Increase temperature Decrease temperature Fahrenheit / Celsius

To trouble shoot the display board, shut off power to the unit. Press and hold all three buttons.

While buttons are depressed, re-energize the unit. If display board is working properly, the word

“Yes” will display. If the board has a fault it will display “No”. Call technical support for a replacement.

TROUBLESHOOTING

SYMPTOM “A”: NO HEAT, INDICATOR LIGHT OFF

1) ELECTRIC SUPPLY IS OFF

Turn on the Three main circuit breakers. Ensure the breakers are properly connected to the relay. L1/L2 from one breaker must correspond with the same relay. You must be able to get

240V across each relay when powered up independently. Do not use space saving breakers.

2) NO OR LOW WATER FLOW

Ensure that the minimum flow rate to switch on your heater is met. “T2T” Models minimum flow rate = 0.7 gallons per minute. Also check that the inlet filter screen is clear from any debris. This is located in the brass inlet boss.

3) WATER CONNECTIONS ARE REVERSED

Cold water inlet = right side, hot water outlet = left side.

4) ELEMENT BURNED OUT

TURN OFF THE FOUR MAIN CIRCUIT BREAKERS!

Using an ohmmeter test the resistance of the heating element across the two threaded termination rods on top of the element.

The resistance reading should be roughly 6.0 ohms. If the resistance is much greater than this value, call Eemax for a replacement element.

5) ECO TRIPPED (High Limit Thermostat)

TURN OFF THE FOUR MAIN CIRCUIT BREAKERS!

Reset by pushing in red button on each heater module. If the Eco was tripped it will re-engage.

SYMPTOM “B”: NO HEAT OR LOW TEMPERATURE WITH INDICATOR LIGHT ON

1) WATER FLOW TOO HIGH

Reduce the water flow by using an outlet ball valve. See specification sheet for temperature rise.

2) INCORRECT POWER SUPPLY

Make sure that the unit is connected to the voltage supply specified on the rating label on the front cover of the unit and no other.

3) ELEMENT BURNED OUT

TURN OFF THE FOUR MAIN CIRCUIT BREAKERS!

Repeat the steps from paragraph 4 above.

4) ECO TRIPPED (High Limit Thermostat)

TURN OFF THE FOUR MAIN CIRCUIT BREAKERS!

Reset by pushing in red button on each heater module.
