SWAN hot water urns are constructed almost entirely of hygienic stainless steel and
should give many years of trouble-free service as long as they are used in accordance
with these instructions.
For all models:
Before first use, remove all packaging, rinse out the urn with warm water (without
Fill the urn with the desired amount of water taking care not to fill past the MAX level
indicator. Avoid under filling the urn as this will cause the overheat protection system
to operate and could reduce the life of the element.
For auto models: SWU10L, SWU20L, SWU26L
Connect the urn to a suitable 220-240V AC 13 Amp mains supply and turn on the
ON/OFF switch. The light will illuminate and the urn will begin to heat the water.
Typical boiling time from cold for the 20 litre model is about 1 hour. This will be less
or more depending on the size of the urn and the ambient temperature in the room.
Temperature control
Once the water has reached temperature, the urn will switch itself off. As the water
cools or if more cold water is added, the urn will switch itself back on again. Typical
temperature range on auto models is 96C to 85C. Plenty hot enough for tea!
For Simmerstat models: SWU8LS, SWU16LS
The simmerstat (pictured right) gives more
control over the water temperature. The range
is around 60C to 100C depending on setting
and ambient temperature in the room.
NOTE: The simmerstats on Swan urns are more
reliable temperature-based, not timer based
To Use
Fill the urn as directed above, taking care not to
over (or under) fill. Connect to suitable mains supply. Set the Simmerstat to setting
4 or 5. The urn will heat the water. From cold, this will take between 30 mins and 1
hour depending on the size of the urn and ambient temperature in the room. Once
the water has boiled, you can set the Simmerstat at a lower setting to save energy. A
setting of around 3-4 is usually sufficient.

Safety first!
NEVER attempt to move the urn when it is full of hot water!
DO NOT site the urn when it can be knocked off the counter top or where
someone could lean on the tap accidentally.
ALWAYS sit the urn on a surface that can withstand the weight of the urn and
the water in it. For 8L models that’s around 11kg. For 26L models that’s around
DO NOT leave the urn switched on overnight if it is not in use. It wastes energy
and the urn could boil dry, which can damage the element.
DO NOT operate the urn without the lid securely fastened.
Boil Dry Protection Switch
If the urn boils dry, it is equipped with a cut-off switch. This needs to be reset manually
before the urn can be used again. The reset switch is underneath the urn. To operate:
1. Switch off the urn and unplug from mains.
2. Allow to cool FULLY.
3. Empty out the water.
4. Press the reset switch.
5. Refill the urn according to above instructions
6. Connect to mains supply.
Excessive limescale build-up can cause the element to overheat and can even cause
the tap to malfunction! Make regular checks of the inside of the urn for signs of
limescale. It is essential that limescale deposits be cleaned using proprietary descaling
tablets, powders or liquids (available from most supermarkets). Those in hard water
areas may need to descale the urn every week. Those in soft water areas won’t need
to descale the urn quite as often.
For a heavily scaled urn use approximately FOUR TIMES the amount of descaling
product required for a kettle. Repeat if necessary.

Did you know...
Swan has been making hot water urns
since1933. Swan were the first to develop
an electric heating element that could be
immersed in water. This revolutionised the
boiling of water using electricity. The
model shown above had a dual heating
element system. One for boiling the water
and a smaller element to keep it hot - just
like this 21st century one!
