NOTICE
This is a gas appliance and should be
installed by a licensed electrician and/or
certified gas supplier. Service must be
performed by a qualified service installer,
service agency or the gas supplier.
 WARNING If the information in these instructions is
not followed exactly, a fire or explosion
may result causing property damage,
personal injury, or death.
This appliance MUST NOT be installed in
any location where gasoline or flammable
vapors are likely to be present, unless
the installation is such to eliminate the
probable ignition of gasoline or flammable
vapors.
What to do if you smell gas –
• Do not try to light any appliance.
• Do not touch any electric switch; do not
use any phone in your building.
• Immediately call your gas supplier from
a near by phone. Follow the gas
supplier’s instructions.
• If you cannot reach your gas supplier,
call the fire department.
Installation and service must be performed
by a qualified installer, service agency, or
the gas supplier.
Warranty –
Installation and service must be performed by a qualified
service installer, service agency or the gas supplier.
Factory warranty (shipped with unit) does not apply to units
improperly installed or improperly operated.
Experience has shown that improper installation or system
design, rather than faulty equipment, is the cause of most
operating problems.
1.
Excessive water hardness causing a lime/scale build-up in
the copper tube is not the fault of the equipment and is
not covered under the manufacturer’s warranty
(see Water Treatment and Water Chemistry).
2.
Excessive pitting and erosion on the inside of the copper
tube may be caused by too much water velocity through
the tubes and is not covered by the manufacturer’s
warranty (see Boiler Flow Rates and Temperature Rise for
flow requirements).
 WARNING
Improper installation, adjustment, alteration,
service or maintenance can result in severe
personal injury, death, or substantial property
damage. Refer to this manual for assistance
or additional information, consult a qualified
installer, service agency or the gas supplier.
Checking equipment –
Upon receiving equipment, check for signs of shipping
damage. Pay particular attention to parts accompanying the
appliances which may show signs of being hit or otherwise
being mishandled. Verify total number of pieces shown on the
packing slip with those actually received. In case there is damage
or a shortage, immediately notify the carrier.
Do not use this appliance if any part has been under water.
The possible damage to a flooded appliance can be extensive
and present numerous safety hazards. Any appliance that has
been under water must be replaced.
 Owner warning –

heating season by a qualified service
technician. In addition, the maintenance
and care of the appliance designated on
page 5 of this manual and explained on
pages 6 through 7 must be performed to
assure maximum appliance efficiency and
reliability. Failure to service and maintain

The following information provides
detailed instructions for completing
the maintenance items listed in the
maintenance schedule on page 5. In
addition to this maintenance, the
appliance must be serviced and started up
at the beginning of each heating season by
a qualified service technician.
Check appliance area
 WARNING
To prevent potential of severe personal
injury, death, or substantial property
damage, eliminate all materials discussed
below from the appliance vicinity and the
vicinity of the appliance combustion air
inlet. If contaminants are found:
Remove products immediately from the
area. If they have been there for an
extended period, call a qualified service
technician to inspect the appliance for
possible damage from acid corrosion.
6
If products cannot be removed,
immediately call a qualified service
technician to re-pipe vent and air piping
and locate vent termination/air intake
away from contaminated areas.
Check pressure/temperature gauge
1.
Make sure the pressure reading on the appliance
pressure/ temperature gauge does not exceed 24 psi.
Higher pressure may indicate a problem with the
expansion tank.
2.
Contact a qualified service technician if problem
persists.
 WARNING
Failure to inspect the vent system as noted
above and have it repaired by a qualified
service technician can result in vent system
failure, causing severe personal injury or
death.
Check vent piping
1.
Visually inspect the vent piping to be sure it is
unobstructed. Inspect the entire length of the vent
piping to ensure piping is intact and all joints are
properly sealed.
2.
Call your qualified service technician if you notice any
problems.
Check relief valve
1.
Inspect the appliance relief valve and the relief valve
discharge pipe for signs of weeping or leakage.
2.
If the relief valve often weeps, the expansion tank may
not be working properly. Immediately contact your
qualified service technician to inspect the appliance and
system.
Test low water cutoff (if installed)
1.
If the system is equipped with a low water cutoff, test the
low water cutoff periodically during the heating season,
following the low water cutoff manufacturer’s
instructions.
Reset button (low water cutoff)
1.
Testing the low water cutoff shuts the unit off. Press the
RESET button on the low water cutoff to turn the unit
back on.

Check appliance piping (gas and water)
1.
2.
Access the appliance and perform a gas
leak inspection per steps 1 through 7 of the Operating
Instructions on page 8. If gas odor or leak is detected,
immediately shut down the boiler and call a qualified
service technician.
Visually inspect for leaks around water piping.
Also inspect the circulators, relief valve, and fittings.
Immediately call a qualified service technician to repair
any leaks.
 WARNING
Have leaks fixed at once by a qualified
service technician. Failure to comply could
result in severe personal injury, death, or
substantial property damage.
Shut appliance down (unless boiler is
used for Domestic Water)
1.
Follow “To Turn Off Gas to Appliance” on page 9 of this
manual.
2.
Do not drain the system unless exposure to freezing
temperatures will occur.
3.
Do not drain the system if it is filled with an antifreeze
solution.
4.
DO NOT shut down boilers used for domestic water
heating, they must operate year-round.
Operate relief valve
1.
Before proceeding, verify that the relief valve outlet has
been piped to a safe place of discharge, avoiding any
possibility of scalding from hot water.
 WARNING
To avoid water damage or scalding due
to valve operation, a metal discharge line
must be connected to the relief valve
outlet and run to a safe place of disposal.
This discharge line must be installed by
a qualified heating installer or service
technician in accordance with the
instructions in the Solution Installation
and Service Manual. The discharge line
must be terminated so as to eliminate
possibility of severe burns or property
damage should the valve discharge.
2.
Read the boiler pressure/temperature gauge to make
sure the system is pressurized. Lift the relief valve
top lever slightly, allowing water to relieve through
the valve and discharge piping.
3.
If water flows freely, release the lever and allow the valve
to seat. Watch the end of the relief valve discharge pipe
to ensure that the valve does not weep after the line has
had time to drain. If the valve weeps, lift the seat again to
attempt to clean the valve seat. If the valve continues to
weep afterwards, contact your qualified service
technician to inspect the valve and system.
4.
If water does not flow from the valve when you lift the
lever completely, the valve or discharge line may be
blocked. Immediately shut down the appliance. Call
your qualified service technician to inspect the appliance
and system.
