AWARNING
Improper installation, adjustment, alteration, service
or maintenance can cause DEATH, SERIOUS BODILY
INJURY, OR PROPERTY DAMAGE. Refer to this manual for assistance consult your local utility or call
Maytag Customer Service at 1-800-788-8899 for an
authorized servicer for further information,
At the time of manufacture this water heater was provided with a combination temperature-pressures relief
valve certified by a nationally recognized testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection of production
of listed equipment or materials, as meeting the
requirements for Relief Valves and Automatic Gas
Shutoff Devices for Hot Water Supply Systems, and
the latest edition of ANSI Z21.22 and the code requirements of ASME. If replaced, the valve must meet the
mquiremeuts of local cedes, but not lessthan a combination temperature and pressure relief valve certified
as meeting the requirements for Relief Valves and
Automatic Gas Shutoff Devices for Hot Water Supply
Systems, ANSI 7.21.22 by a nationally recognized testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection of
production of listad equipment or materials.
The valve must be marked with a maximum set pressure not to exceed the marked hydrostatic working
pressure of the water heater (150 Ibs./sq. in.) and a
discharge capacity not less than the water heater
input rate as shown on the model rating plate.
(Electric heaters - watts divided by 1000 x 3415 equal
BTU/Hr. rate.)
Your local jurisdictional authority, while mandating the
use of a temperature-pressure relief valve complying
with ANSI Z21.22 and ASME, may require a valve model
different from the one fum shed with the water heater.
Compliance with such local requirements must be satisfied by the installer or end user of the water heater
with a locally prescribed temperature-pressure relief
valve installed In the designated opening in the water
heater in place of the factory furnished valve.
For safe operation of the water heater, the relief valve
must not be removed from it's designated opening or
plugged.
The temperature-pressure
relief valve must be
installed directly into the fitting of the water heater
designated for the relief valve. Position the valve
downward and provide tubing so that any discharge
will exit only within 6 inches above, or at any distance
below the structural floor. Be certain that no contact is
made with any live electrical part. The discharge opening must not be blocked or reduced in size under any
circumstances. Excessivelength, over 30 feet, or use of
more than four elbows can cause restriction and
reduce the discharge capacity of the valve.
No valve or other obstruction is to be placed between
the relief valve and the tank. Do not connect tubing
directly to discharge drain unless a 6" air gap is provided. To prevent bodily injury, hazard to life, or property
damage, the relief valve must be allowed to discharge
water in quantities should circumstances demand. If
the discharge pipe is not connected to a drain or other
suitable means, the water flow may cause property
damage.
The Discharge Pipe:
Must not be smaller in size than the outlet pipe size
of the valve, or have any reducing couplings or
other restrictions.
Must not be plugged or blocked.
Must be of material listed for hot water distribution.
A, WARNING
HAZARD OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK! Before removing
any access panels or servicing the water heater,
make sure the electrical supply to the water heater
is turned "OFF". Failure to do this could result in
DEATH, SERIOUS BODILY INJURY, OR PROPERTY
DAMAGE.
A'WARNING
HOTTER WATER CAN SCALD: Water heaters are
intended to produce hot water. Water heated to a
temperature
which will satisfy clothes washing,
dish washing, and other sanitizing needs can scald
and permanently injure you upon contact. Some
people are more likely to be permanently injured by
hot water than others. These include the elderly,
children, the infirm, or physically/mentally
handicapped. If anyone using hot water in your home fits
into one of these groups or if there is a local code or
state law requiring a certain temperature water at
the hot water tap, then you must take special precautions. In addition to using the lowest possible
temperature setting that satisfies your hot water
needs, a means such as a mixing valve, should be
used at the hot water taps used by these people or
at the water heater. Mixing valves are available at
plumbing supply or hardware stores. Follow manutacturers instructions for installation of the valves,
Before changing the factory setting on the thermostat, read the "Temperature Regulation" section in
this manual,
AWARNING
INSULATING JACKETS: When installing an external
water heater insulation jacket on an electric water
heater:
• DO NOT cover the temperature-pressure relief valve,
• DO NOT put insulation over the access covers or
any access areas,
• DO NOT cover or remove operating instructions,
and safety related warning labels and materials
affixed to the water heater,
•,WARNING
Do not use this appliance if any part of it has been

WATER HEATERS _WARNING
EQUIPPED FOR ONE VOLTAGE
ONLY: This water heater is equipped for one type
voltage only. Check the rating plate near the bottom access panel for the correct voltage. DO NOT
use this water heater with any voltage other than
the one shown on the model rating plate. Failure to
use the correct voltage can cause problems which
can result in DEATH, SERIOUS BODILY INJURY, OR
PROPERTY DAMAGE. If you have any questions or
doubts consult your electric company.
I
ACAUTION
WATER HEATERS EVENTUALLY LEAK: Installation of l
the water heater must be accomplished
in such a I
manner that if the tank or any connections should I
leak, the flow of water will not cause damage to the
structure. For this reason, it is not advisable to insta
the water heater in an attic or upper floor. When
such locations cannot be avoided, a suitable drain
pan should be installed under the water heater.
Drain pans are available at your local hardware
store. Such a drain pan must have a minimum diameter of at least 13/, inches greater than the water
heater diameter and must be piped to an adequate
drain. Under no circumstances is the manufacturer or
Maytag to be held liable for any water damage in
connection with this water heater.

WATER HEATERS EVENTUALLY LEAK: Installation of/
the water heater must be accomplished in such a_
manner that if the tank or any connections should |
leak, the flow of water will not cause damage to the
structure. For this reason, it is not advisable to instal
the water heater in an attic or upper floor. When
such locations cannot be avoided, a suitable drain
pan should be installed under the water heater.
Drain pans are available at your local hardware
store. Such a drain pan must have a minimum diameter of at least 1314inches greater than the water
heater diameter and must be piped to an adequate
drain. Under no circumstances is the manufacturer
or
Maytag to be held liable for any water damage in
connection with this water heater.
You should carefully choose an indoor location for the new
water heater, because the placement is a very important conslderation for the safety of the occupants in the building and
for the most economical use of the appliance. This water
heater is not intended for outdoor installation,
Whether replacing an old water heater or putting the water
heater in a new location, the following critical points must be
observed,
1. The location selected should be indoors as close to and as
centralized with the water piping system as possible. This

Temperature-Pressure
Relief Valve
A, WARNING
I
At the time of manufacture this water heater was provided with a combination temperature-pressuresrelief valve I
certified by a nationally recognizedtesting laboratory that I
maintains periodic inspection of production of listed I
equipment or materials, as meeting the requirements for
Relief Valves and Automatic Gas Shutoff Devices for Hot
Water Supply Systems, and the latest edition of ANSI
Z21.22 and the code requirements of ASME. If replaced,
the valve must meet the requirements of local codes,but
not less than a combination temperature and pressure
relief valve certified as meeting the requirements for
Relief Valves and Automatic Gas Shutoff Devices for Hot
Water Supply Systems,ANSI Z21.22 by a nationally recog- I
nized testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection!
_, WARNING
The temperature-pressure relief valve must be manually operated at least once a year. Caution should be
taken to ensure that (1) no one is in front of or
around the outlet of the temperature-pressure relief
valve discharge line, and (2) the water manually discharged will not cause any bodily injury or property
damage because the water may be extremely hot.
If after manually operating the valve, it fails to completely reset and continues to release water, immediately close the cold water inlet to the water heater,
follow the draining instructions, and replace the
temperature-pressure relief valve with a new one.
The valve must be marked with a maximum set pressure
not to exceedthe marked hydrostaticworking pressureof
the water heater (150 Ibs./sq.in.) and a dischargecapacity
not lessthan the water heater input rate as shown on the
model rating plate. (Electric heaters - watts divided by
1000 x 3415 equal BTU/Hr. rate.)

The temperature-pressure relief valve must be installed
directly into the fitting of the water heater designated for
the relief valve. Positionthe valve downward and provide
tubing so that any dischargewill exit only within 6 inches
above, or at any distance below the structural floor. Be
certain that no contact is made with any live electrical
part. The discharge opening must not be blocked or
reduced in size under any circumstances.Excessivelength,
over 30 feet, or use of more than four elbows can cause
restrictionand reducethe dischargecapacity of the valve.
No valve or other obstructionis to be placed between the
relief valve and the tank. Do not connecttubing directly to
dischargedrain unlessa 6 air gap is provided. To prevent
bodily injury, hazard to life, or property damage, the relief
valve must be allowed to discharge water in quantities
should circumstances demand. If the discharge pipe is not
connected to a drain or other suitable means, the water
flow may cause property damage.
The DischargePipe:
• Must notbe smaller in size than the outlet pipe size of
the valve, or have any reducing couplings or other
restrictions.
• Must not be plugged or blocked.
Must be of material listed for hot water distribution.
Must be installed so as to allow complete drainage of
both the temperature-pressurerelief valve, and the discharge pipe.
Must terminate at an adequate drain,
• Must not have any valve between the relief valve and

Service
Before calling for repair service, read the "Start Up
Conditions" and "Operational Conditions" found in the
"Troubleshooting" section of this manual
If a condition persists or you are uncertain about the operation of the water heater, let a qualified person check it out.
Call Maytag Customer Service at 1-800-788-8899.

Troubleshooting
Start Up Conditions
THERMAL
EXPANSION
Smelly water may be eliminated or reduced in some water heater
models by replacing the anode(s) with one of less active material,
and then chlorinating the water heater tank and all hot water
lines. Call Maytag Customer Service at 1-800-788-8899 for an
authorized servicerfor further information concerning an Anode
Replacement Kit #66001068 and this Chlorination Treatment.
Water supply systems may, because of such events as high line
pressure, frequent cut-offs, the effects of water hammer
among others, have installed devices such as pressure reducing
valves, check valves, back flow preventers, etc...to control
these types of problems. When these devices are not equipped
with an internal by-pass, and no other measures are taken, the
devices cause the water system to be closed. As water is heated, it expands (thermal expansion) and closed systems do not
allow for the expansion of heated water,
If the smelly water persists after the anode replacement and chlotination treatment, we can only suggest that continuous chlorination and faltering conditioning equipment be considered to elimi
nate the water problem.
The water within the water heater tank expands as it is heated
and increases the pressure of the water system. If the relieving
point of the water heater's temperature-pressure relief valve is
reached, the valve will relieve the excess pressure. The temperature-pressure relief valve is not intended for the constant

doing so, all warranty on the water heater tank is voided.

HYDROGEN GAS: Hydrogen gas can be produced in
a hot water system that has not been used for a
long period of time (generally two weeks or more).
Hydrogen gas is extremely flammable and explosive. To prevent the possibility of injury under these
conditions, we recommend the hot water faucet be
opened for several minutes at the kitchen sink
before any electrical appliances which are connected to the hot water system are used (such as a dishwasher or washing machine). If hydrogen gas is present, there will probably be an unusual sound similar to air escaping through the pipe as the hot
water faucet is opened. There must be no smoking
or open flame near the faucet at the time it is open.
and must be corrected.
It is recommended that any devices installed which could create
a closed system, have a by-pass and/or the system have an
expansion tank to relieve the pressure built by thermal expansion in the water system. Expansion tanks are available for
ordering through the Maytag Customer Service. Contact the
local water supplier and/or call Maytag Customer Service at
1-800-788-8899 for an authorized servicer for assistance in
