Important instructions for the user
General
- Installation and startup should only ever be performed by an approved
installer or authorised installation firm.
- Before using the appliance, please read through these instructions
carefully. The manufacturer cannot accept any liability for damage
resulting from failure to follow these instructions.
- Fittings and connecting pipes may get hot. Therefore keep children well
away.
Operating the appliance
The ELECTROLUX IH electronic instantaneous water heater heats the water
as the latter continuously flows through it. When the hot water tap is opened,
the appliance switches on at a flowrate of around 3 l/min. When the hot water
valve is closed or if the flowrate is reduced below 2.5 l/min, the appliance
switches itself off again. The appliance is suitable for household use and should
only ever be used for heating of drinking water.
One or more tapping points can be supplied with hot water.
Temperature preselection
The electronic system allows continuous temperature selection in the range
from 30°C to 60°C.
Recommendation for energy-saving operation:
40°C for washbasin, shower, and bath (knob tangibly engages).
55°C for kitchen sink. If this temperature
is no longer needed, the appliance
should be reset to the 40°C energysaving level.
Wash basin
Shower
Bath basin
Kitchen sink
When the appliance is operated with a
thermostatic mixer tap, the temperature
setting on the instantaneous water
heater must be around 8°C higher than
on the thermostatic mixer tap.
3
Hot water flowrate
Up to the appliance’s max. power limit, the instantaneous water heater
supplies the set hot water temperature regardless of the water flowrate
selected.
If the hot water temperature is not attained when the hot water valve
is fully opened, more water flows than can be heated by the
appliance power. In this case, the hot water tap must be slightly
closed.
Because of the different inlet temperatures, the hot water output varies
depending on the season.
The following outlet flowrates for bath or shower water (40°C) or washbasin/
sink water (55°C) are attained at the inlet temperatures of 6°C, 10°C,
and 14°C.

Care and maintenance of the appliance
Clean the plastic housing as necessary with a damp cloth and dilute soap
solution. Never use any abrasive, scouring, and solvent-containing detergents.
The instantaneous water heater generally needs no maintenance. Regular
inspection of the appliance by a trained engineer will ensure its operational
reliability and prolong its service life.
Scale deposits in the outlet of fittings reduce the water flowrate. The air
bubblers of the fittings or hand shower head must therefore be cleaned from
time to time.

Appliance function
The fully electronically controlled ELECTROLUX IH instant water heater is a
pressurised appliance for the supply of one or more tapping points and heats
the water as the latter continuously flows through it. A flowrate sensor switches
on the heating at a flowrate of around 3 l/min and off again at around 2,5 l/min.
The microprocessor controlled electronic system automatically adapts the
heating power with regard for the inlet temperature, the temperature set on the
temperature selector knob, and the water flowrate. The user thus has hot
water available in an energy-saving system giving the exact temperature required
without any time limitation whatever.
The nominal operating pressure is 1 Mpa. If this value is exceeded, a pressure
reducing valve should be provided in the household pipework. A safety valve is
not necessary.
The bare wire resistance heating system has a high efficiency. Its low weight
and extremely low water content also make it suitable for hard, lime-containing
water qualities.
Safety temperature and pressure limiter
In the event of a fault, the inbuilt safety
temperature limiter isolates the appliance from
the mains supply on all contacts.
Before the appliance is switched back on, a
trained engineer must ascertain and eliminate
the cause of the fault (see page 17). Then
carefully press in the contact rocker with a
screwdriver until it audibly engages.
Important: Don't block up the contact rocker!
Pressurepoint
for screwdriver
Important! The safety temperature and pressure limiter should never
be adapted or modified in any way!

Using the appliance for the first time and checking
The unit must be installed and started up by an approved firm of installers
which accepts liability for safety and proper function.
Before the appliance is energised (connected to the electricity supply),
it should be thoroughly flushed with cold water and the tightness of the
screwed joints checked.
After the instantaneous water heater is energised (connected to the
electricity supply), it should be inspected by a trained engineer to
ensure that it is in proper working order. For protection of the heating
systems, the system is arranged for a switch-on delay of 5 - 25 s at
initial startup and after the appliance has not been live for any length
of time.
Important: After any work carried out on the water supply unit, the
appliance should also be thoroughly flushed with cold water (vented)
before being switched on again. Only then should the appliance be
reconnected to the electricity supply.
After initial startup, the user should be familiarised with operation of
the appliance and the instructions for installation and use handed
over for safekeeping.
