How your hot water system works Using your hot water system

Your hot water system contains two main components – a heat pump and a hot water storage tank:

Heat Pump

The heat pump is the primary heating device and employs the same heating technology as a refrigeration style air conditioner. It absorbs heat energy from the surrounding air and transfers it into water circulating between the heat pump and the storage tank. Since this heat energy isn’t created but simply moved and concentrated from one location to another, it is very efficient and cost effective especially compared to the common electric hot water service that transforms electrical energy to heat energy by use of an element.

The auxiliary heating boost button is located on the side of the heat pump near the inlet and outlet water connections. auxiliary heating boost button

Hot Water Storage Tank

The hot water storage tank is where the hot water is stored and kept available for usage throughout the day. It comprises an enamel coated steel preservation tank, surrounded by thermal insulation and protected by a metal casing.

A sacrificial anode is installed inside the tank to protect it from corrosion and also a 3.6kW electric element as an auxiliary heating device. Depending on your installation your storage tank will have a storage capacity of either

270, 340 or 450 litres.

Operating modes

The hot water system has two operating modes, automatic mode and electric heating manual mode:

1. Automatic mode: This is the default operating mode.

The heat pump starts up and shuts down according to the water temperature inside the storage tank. When the temperature inside the tank decreases to the restart temperature setpoint, the heat pump will start up automatically. When the temperature inside the tank is heated to the stop temperature setpoint, the heat pump will shutdown automatically.

2. Electric heating manual mode: When the user manually presses the auxiliary heating boost button, then the heat pump operation will change to the electric heating manual mode. During this mode, the heat pump will not run and instead will output power to the storage tank element circuit. The tank element will heat water according to the setting on the thermostat inside the storage tank. This electric heating mode will run for up to 1 day and then the heat pump will revert back to its normal automatic mode. This mode can be useful if the heat pump is wired to an off-peak power supply that may only be available at night and extra hot water is needed during the day. This mode may also be useful if the heat pump requires a service call and hot water is needed until the technician arrives.

To activate the electric heating manual mode:

• Twist to release the button (if already in pushed in position), then push the button in until it clicks in place

• The fan may start up if needed to keep the heat pump circuitry and electronics cool

• After about 3 seconds a “click” sound will be heard inside the heat pump and the storage tank element circuit will be activated.

• The storage tank element circuit will stay activated for up to a 1 day period, after which the heat pump will deactivate the element circuit and revert back to its normal operating mode (even when the button remains depressed).

warning

Ensure that the heater circuit is not active when connecting with the heater tank.

Continuous or off-peak power supply

The heat pump may be installed on a continuous only power supply or with an off-peak power supply to run the compressor circuit and continuous supply to power the electronics and auxiliary tank element. If the heat pump is installed on a continuous only power supply it will be able to operate at any time of the day. If it is installed with an off-peak power supply, it will only be able to operate when the off-peak power supply is available. The heat pump has been designed to operate on extended off-peak which provides power for up to 18 hours of the day (night and day). If the premises only has standard off peak supply connected (available only 8 hours at night) then there is a possibility that the customer may not have sufficient hot water in the late afternoon. Failure to follow this requirement is an installation error, and hence resulting complaints will not be covered under warranty. Please contact your electricity supplier to confirm or change to extended off peak power supply.

6 how your hot water system works Kelvinator heat pump hot water systems

Using your hot water system Using your hot water system

Water temperature operating range

The heat pump has been designed to achieve maximum efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It maintains the water inside the storage tank between 47°C and 60°C.

While this may be less than the temperature setpoint of previously installed hot water systems, it is still well above showering temperature. If a tempering valve wasn't previously installed this may also create a noticeable difference to the temperature or pressure of the hot water at the fixtures. To maximise the amount of hot water available and to save water it is recommended to install and use 3 or 4 star WELS rated showerheads (previously called AAA rated).

Bacteria and Legionella control

Once a week the heat pump will operate at a higher setpoint and heat the water in the tank to 60°C. This is in order to sanitize the water inside the tank, to prevent Legionella and other bacteria from causing a heath hazard. It will run at this new setpoint for 24 hours and then revert back to the normal setpoint for the remainder of the week. By default the heat pump starts up in this function and as such, the weekly cycle will be reset if the heat pump loses power.

Ambient temperature range of the heat pump

In order for the heat pump to operate correctly, the ambient temperature should be between -7°C and 50°C. If the ambient temperature is outside this range the heat pump may not operate.

Fan speed during heat pump’s heating operation

During the heat pump’s heating operation, the fan speed will vary according to the outdoor ambient temperature and may even stop completely. This optimises the performance of the heat pump heating operation and is part of its normal operation.

Heat pump freeze protection

The heat pump is suitable for heavy frost conditions. However, in order for its freeze protection mechanism to operate there must be power available to the heat pump. If the heat pump is to be without power for a long period of time due to power failure, maintenance or periodic shut down and there is a risk of frosty conditions, the heat pump could become damaged due to freezing. Follow the instructions in this manual to isolate and drain the hot water system in order to protect it from being damaged due to freezing. If it is suspected that the heat pump has become frozen, ensure that power is available and then call a service technician to inspect it.

Loss of power to the hot water system

If the hot water system is to be without power for a long period of time (due to power failure, maintenance or periodic shut down) and there is a risk of frosty conditions, the hot water system may become damaged due to freezing. Follow the instructions in this user manual for isolating and draining the hot water system in order to protect it from being damaged.

Water quality

Water quality can vary in different locations and affect the performance and safe operation of the hot water system.

If the water supply is not within the acceptable limits as indicated below, the hot water system should not be installed, and will not be covered by warranty from the manufacturer. A suitable solution is to implement a water pre-treatment process to bring the water quality to within acceptable limits to support the installation.

The saturation index (SI) is a measure of the corrosive or scaling properties of the water supply. Corrosive water

(SI<-1.0) can corrode copper components. In these conditions warranty will not apply. Scaling water (SI>0.5) can cause build up of CaCO3 (Calcium carbonate) which can impact to the correct operation of moving parts within the system, including the temperature and pressure relief valve.

In these conditions warranty will not apply.

Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and water hardness can also impact the life of the hot water system, and warranty does not apply outside the following limits:

• TDS exceeding 600 p.p.m

• Electrical conductivity exceeding 850us/cm

• Total hardness exceeding 200 p.p.m

• Chloride exceeding 250 p.p.m

• Magnesium exceeding 10 p.p.m

• Sodium exceeding 150 p.p.m

• Acidity/Alkalinity must also be within the limits of pH 6.5 - 8.5

Heat pump protection devices

The heat pump is programmed to prevent unsafe conditions occurring and to protect itself from damage. When power is applied to the heat pump it will not start until it has several minutes of uninterrupted power supply to protect it from excessive cycling of the power supply. The heat pump may stop operating and become locked out due to a fault if some of the following occur:

• Air inlet or outlet is blocked

• Water inlet or outlet is blocked

• Air mix in water or refrigerant

• Refrigeration circuit pressure is too high

• Supply voltage is outside the accepted range

• Temperature sensor has been damaged or removed from storage tank

• Temperature sensors inside heat pump become faulty or damaged

Pressure and temperature relief valve (PTR valve)

A pressure and temperature relief valve has been installed next to the outlet connection near the top of your hot water storage tank. The relief valve is designed to allow a small amount of hot water to discharge during heating to allow for hot water expansion. It is essential to the safe operation of your hot water system and may activate if an unsafe condition arises.

Running out of hot water

If you find you are occasionally running out of hot water, it may be wise to review your household's hot water usage.

Since this hot water system is designed as an energy saving appliance, you should consider adjusting your water usage accordingly. Install more efficient appliances e.g. washing machines or dishwashers and water saving fixtures e.g. 3 or 4 star WELS rated showerheads. If the number of people in the household has increased, consider installing a larger capacity storage tank or changing the power supply from extended off peak to continuous.

Kelvinator heat pump hot water systems using your hot water system 7

Maintenance

Maintaining your hot water system

Regularly inspect the air inlet and outlet of the heat pump.

Remove any foreign objects or blockages to allow the air to flow freely.

Once the hot water system is in use, sediment can accumulate in the system.

In order to maximise the life of the hot water system, it is recommended that you flush the system every 5 years (more frequently in poor water quality areas) according to the below instructions:

Drainage or flushing of tank

To flush or drain the storage tank:

1. The power to the hot water system must be turned off at the switchboard. Locate and turn off the circuit breaker that supplies the hot water system or remove its fuse.

5. Release the pressure inside the tank by lifting up the lever on the pressure and temperature relief valve. Caution should be taken so the lever does not snap back as it could damage the valve seat. Once the lever is activated water will be discharged from the relief valve drainage pipe, relieving the pressure inside the storage tank. outlet relief valve activation lever drainage pipe

2. The water inside the tank will be extremely hot. Turn on the nearest hot water tap and allow it to run until the water coming out has reached a safe temperature for draining.

3. Before draining the hot water system assess the best area for the water to be directed (i.e. an outside drain) where it will not damage to any property or cause an unsafe situation to arise.

4. Turn off the mains water supply to the hot water system using the isolation valve located on the inlet piping.

6. When water has stopped discharging from the relief valve drainage pipe, this indicates that the pressure inside the tank has now been reduced to atmospheric pressure.

De-activate the lever on the relief valve, returning it to its normal position.

7. Drain the storage tank by undoing the connection to the tank inlet and placing your drainage solution in position as needed. Activate the relief valve lever, releasing the vacuum and allowing air to flow into the tank as the water drains out. Whilst the storage tank is draining, continually monitor the process and most importantly where the water is draining to. If at any time the draining needs to be halted, simply de-activate the relief valve lever.

8. Once the storage tank has been fully drained, flush the system by inserting a garden hose into the inlet of the storage tank. Allow water to enter the inlet and drain several times to ensure that all sediment is removed.

9. De-activate the relief valve, returning it to its normal position.

10. Reconnect the inlet piping to the storage tank and then turn on the isolation valve, located on the inlet piping to allow mains water to refill the tank.

11. Turn on the nearest hot water tap to allow air to be expelled from the system. Once water has begun to flow freely from the tap for a period of time and all air has been expelled from the system, close the hot water tap.

8 maintenance Kelvinator heat pump hot water systems

Maintenance

12. Clean all filters in the hot water system including any that may be located on individual fixtures as they may have become blocked by debris during the process of flushing and draining of the hot water system.

13. Check that all isolation valves that are designed to be open during normal operation of the hot water system are fully open.

14. The power to the hot water system can now be turned on at the switchboard.

Note: Since the water inside the storage tank will now be cold, it may take some time for the water to return to its optimum operating temperature.

Pressure and temperature relief valve (PTR valve)

We recommend you gently operate the easing lever on the relief valve at least once every 6 months. We also recommend that this relief valve be checked regularly to ensure it is not continually leaking or that the discharge piping connected to the valve is not blocked.

warning

Failure to operate the relief valve easing gear at least once every six months may result in the hot water storage tank failing or in extreme cases exploding. Continuous leakage of the water from the valve may indicate a problem with the water heater.

Anode replacement

There is a sacrificial anode installed in the storage tank (two in the 450L model) designed to protect the vitreous enamel coated steel tank from corrosion. The anode will slowly oxidise while protecting the steel tank liner, reducing its effectiveness in protecting the tank from rusting over time.

The anode must therefore be inspected and replaced (as required) every 2 to 5 years depending on the supply water quality, in order to keep the storage tank warranty valid. The anode inspection and replacement must be conducted by an authorised service person or plumber and be replaced by a manufacturer authorised spare part, which can be sourced from the Electrolux spare parts division (see contact details in warranty section). storage tank sacrificial anode

warning

If the hot water system is not used for two weeks or more, a quantity of highly flammable hydrogen gas may accumulate in the water heater. To dissipate this gas safely, it is recommended that a hot tap be turned on for several minutes or until discharge of gas ceases. Use a sink, basin, or bath outlet, but not a dishwasher, clothes washer, or other appliance. During this procedure, there must be no smoking, open flame, or any electrical appliance operating nearby. If hydrogen is discharged through the tap, it will probably make an unusual sound as with air escaping.

Kelvinator heat pump hot water systems maintenance 9

Troubleshooting

Before calling for servicing or repair, check the following points:

Operation

Part of normal operation

Abnormal operation

Problem

Short 'hissing' sound coming from the heat pump

The sound of water flow inside the heat pump

The fan is not running but the rest of the heat pump is.

The heat pump is not running.

Small amount of water leaking from underneath heat pump or installed drainage pipe.

The heat pump is running but the water is cold

Water is discharging from the pressure relief valve on the storage tank.

The water inside the tank is cold and the heat pump is not running.

Power is available to the heat pump but it is not running and the water in the tank is cold.

There is low water pressure or flow coming from the hot taps or fixtures

Possible solutions

This is made by the heat exchanger as the temperature changes inside. The heat expands and the cold contracts creating an audible

'hiss' sound. This is part of normal operation and not a product fault.

This is caused by the refrigerant and water flowing inside the heat pump. It may be louder during the first few minutes of operation and is normal.

The fan speed variers according to the ambient temperature and may stop entirely during operation for a period of time.

If the fan stops indefinitely while the rest of the heat pump is operating, please call a service technician.

The temperature inside the tank could be above the set point and the unit has shutdown.

Under colder conditions the heat pump may shutdown in order to go into defrost mode.

If the heat pump is wired up to an off-peak tarrif it will only run when this supply is available.

The heat pump will not operate until it has 3 minutes of uninterrupted power supply as part of its protection.

Water may collect in the bottom tray of the heat pump due to rain or condensation as part of the normal operation of the heat pump. There is a drain hole on the bottom tray of the heat pump that allows water to run out from underneath it and a drainage pipe may be connected to this hole as part of the installation. If an excessive amount of water is coming from this hole/drainage pipe or anywhere else on the heat pump please call a service technician.

If this heat pump hasn’t been on for long it will take some time for the temperature inside the tank to get to its set-point level.

If the heat pump is working correctly the output connection on the heat pump should be warm, indicating that it is pumping warm water into the tank.

If the tank element is installed on off peak, check with your power provider that you are on extended off peak or off peak 2 tarrif. This appliance is not designed for installation on standard off peak or off peak 1.

A small amount of water may discharge from the relief valve regularly to compensate for water that has expanded upon heating. However if a large volume of water is being discharged with steam, then turn off power to the heat pump and call a service technician. If there is a small but continuous leak, operate the lever on the relief valve a couple of times to see if the leak stops, if the leak continues call a service technician.

Check that power is available at the switchboard supplying the heat pump and that its circuit breaker is on or that the fuse is in.

If there is an isolator switch for the heat pump installed check that this is not switched off. If the circuit breaker is tripped or the fuse is blown call a service technician.

The heat pump may have shutdown due to a fault condition.

Turn power off to the heat pump for a few seconds and then power it back on. This may reset the heat pump from a protection mode (due to a power surge etc.). If this occurs again, this may indicate a faulty or dangerous condition. Please call a service technician.

Check that all isolation valves in the water system are fully opened (e.g. isolation valve at mains water meter, isolation valve at inlet to hot water system). Also check that all filters in the hot water system are clean and free from blockages including any filters on individual taps or fixtures.
