Property/Product Damage Contact a qualified installer or licensed plumber for the best procedure for cutting a faucet opening in your type of sink or countertop. l Plumbing connections must comply with all sanitary, safety and plumbing codes. l Do Not store or operate hot water dispenser below 32°F. l Do Not use pipe sealing compounds. They may get inside dispenser and cause an unpleasant taste or smell. l Dispenser must be filled with water and thermostat turned to “OFF” position before connecting to electrical power supplyFailure to follow these instructions may result in water damage to property or permanent product damage not covered by the warranty. Proper cold water supply connection must be available. (See “Water supply requirements,” Panel B.) l Use saddle tapping valve supplied. Saddle tapping valve is designed for use with 3/8” to l3/8” outer dimension (O.D.), soft copper tubing (plain or chrome plated) or rigid metal pipe. Do Not use the saddle valve with flexible ribbed tubing. (See “Water supply requirements,” Panels B.) Flexible ribbed tubing requires special connecting hardware available from your local plumbing supply. Grounded electrical outlet is required. (See “Electrical requirements,” Panel B.) Outlet should be located for easy connection to hot water dispenser. The outlet should be within 30” of hot water dispenser tank.

Panel B Water supply requirements Electrical requirements Check that all Association 02269 Important: If local codes do Not permit the use of saddle valves, special feed valves can be obtained from your local plumbing supply distributor. If local codes permit, the hot water dispenser feed line should be connected to the cold water supply line using a saddle tapping valve. The saddle tapping valve supplied is designed for use with 3/8” to l-318” outer dimension (O.D.), soft copper supply tubing (plain or chrome plated) and rigid metal pipe. Do Not use saddle valve with flexible ribbed supply tubing. Flexible ribbed supply tubing has a thin wall thickness and requires special connection hardware, available from your local plumbing supply distributor. NOTE: Connection to hot water line is not recommended. Energy will be wasted in heating the water twice and the magnesium rod used in household heating may produce a “rotten egg” taste. If this unit is replacing a hot water dispenser connected to a hot water supply, the existing connection may be used. Installation Turn off main water supply.

Water in tank will reach maximum temperature in approximately 15 minutes and dispenser will be ready for use. Lower temperature setting if you notice vapor or hear boiling noise. NOTE: Thermostat controls tank heater, not water delivery. Rotate thermostat knob clockwise to raise water temperature; counterclockwise to lower water temperature. = To get the most efficient use from your new hot water dispenser, read the Use & Care Information. Keep Ins talla tion lnstruc tions4Jse & Care Guide close to hot water dispenser for easy reference. Use and care information For short periods (2-30 days) of nonuse: Set the hot water dispenser thermostat to the “OFF’ position to conserve energy. If you have very hard water, it may be necessary to occasionally clean the faucet screen to remove sediment buildup. Your hot water dispenser uses a heating element to warm water in the tank to approximately 190°F when the temperature control is turned to the highest position. You can draw approximately 2 quarts of hot water at a time. As hot water is drawn from the tank, it refills with cold water, which is then heated. It takes approximately 15 minutes for a tank of cold water to heat to the maximum temperature. l l l l l Personal Injury Hazard Check that lever is to the side or behind faucet spout before using hot water dispenser. Do Not reach into or splash hot water on skin. Do Not let children operate hot water dispenser. Do Not leave children or infants unattended near hot water dispenser. Do Not use hot water from dispenser for bathing children, infants or pets. Water from hot water dispenser can reach temperatures of approximately 190°F. Failure to follow these instructions may result in scalding or burns from hot water. To get hot water from the tank: Push or pull faucet lever. To stop water flow from faucet: Release faucet lever and let it return to the vertical position. Ways you can use your hot water dispenser: ’ Your hot water dispenser water has many uses, including: l To prepare instant foods and drinks that require 190°F maximum water for preparation (such as instant coffee, tea, hot chocolate, bouillon, soup, instant cereal, instant mashed potatoes, frosting mix, etc.). l To get a fast start on cooking foods that require boiling (such as hard boiled eggs, fresh or frozen vegetables, meat cooking in liquid, dried soup, pasta, rice, hot cereals, packaged dinners with pasta, rice or potatoes). l Loosening jar lids. l Warming baby bottles. l Warming baby food. l Filling hot water bottles. l Peeling tomatoes or peaches. l Dissolving gelatin. l Thawing frozen foods. l Preparing vegetables for canning. To remove the faucet screen: 1. Set hot water dispenser thermostat to “OFF.” 2. Hold lever down and drain hot water from tank. Release lever. 3. Unscrew nozzle from faucet spout. 4. Remove screen and flow director from inside nozzle. To clean the screen and flow director: 1. Use a small brush and vinegar to remove deposits. 2. If deposits have hardened, soak screen and flow director in vinegar for l-2 hours. Then use brush to clean. To replace faucet screen: 1. Insert flow director into nozzle. Then insert screen. 2. Position nozzle on end of faucet spout and carefully tighten by hand. NOTE: Nozzle must be fully tightened for screen and flow director to be properly seated and for nozzle not to leak. 3. Check that faucet spout is positioned away from faucet lever. Hold lever down and check for leaks at nozzle. If nozzle leaks, remove nozzle and check that screen and flow director are properly positioned. Replace nozzle and check for leaks again. 4. Set hot water dispenser thermostat to “HIGH.” On average, you will use your hot water dispenser to heat 7 to 8 cups of water per day. This uses only 19 kilowatt-hours of energy per month. So it is Not necessary to turn off the hot water dispenser each night to conserve energy. However, if the hot water dispenser will not be used for an extended period of time, follow these instructions - Problem The water temperature is controlled by a thermostat on the tank. The thermostat has infinite settings between “OFF’ and “HIGH” and can be adjusted by rotating the thermostat knob clockwise for a higher temperature; counter-clockwise for a lower temperature. When the thermostat knob is turned to the “OFF’ position, the hot water dispenser will not heat the water. When the thermostat knob is turned to the “HIGH” position, the water will heat to approximately 190°F. It is recommended that the thermostat be set to the “HIGH” position for the best performance. However, under certain conditions, it is possible that you will see vapor coming out of the faucet or hear a boiling noise when the thermostat is set to “HIGH.” If this occurs, lower the thermostat setting to a position that eliminates the vapor or noise. Panel E For long periods of nonuse, seasonal storage or protection from freezing: 1. Turn hot water dispenser thermostat to the “OFF’ position. 2. Unplug hot water dispenser power supply cord. 3. Hold down faucet lever and run water until water is cold. 4. Turn saddle valve handle clockwise to turn off water supply. 5. Place a 3-quart minimum container under the drain plug at the bottom of the tank. 6. Remove drain plug with a 9116” wrench and allow all water to drain from tank. 6. Replace plug, but do Not overtighten. drain plug Product Damage Fill tank with water and turn thermostat to “OFF” position before plugging hot water dispenser into power supply. Failure to do so could cause hot water dispenser heater to overheat resulting in an unpleasant taste, black specks in water, and permanent damage to the heater seals. 1. Turn saddle valve handle counterclockwise to open water supply line. 2. Hold down faucet lever until tank is full (approximately 1 minute). When tank is full, water will flow from faucet spout. Release lever. Check for leaks. 3. Check that hot water dispenser thermostat is set to “OFF’ position. 4. Plug power supply cord into properly grounded outlet. 5. Set thermostat to “HIGH” position.
