BASIC OPERATION
WARNING
Service on this boiler should be undertaken only
by trained and skilled personnel from a qualified
service agency.
CAUTION
Should overheating occur or the gas supply fail
to shut off, turn off the gas supply at a location
external to the appliance.
Do not use this boiler if any part has been under
water. Immediately call a qualified service agency
to inspect the boiler and to replace any part of the
control system and any gas control which has
been under water.
A. General. This water boiler is a natural draft appliance
and is equipped with controls for proper operation. All
controls must be in proper working order. Contact a
qualified service agency to provide annual maintenance as specified in the Installation, Operation and
Maintenance Manual.
B. Control Locations. See Figure 1 for Control and
Safety Device Locations.
1a. Limit (Steam Boiler). An electrical device that
automatically interrupts the boiler operation
when the steam pressure exceeds the “CUT IN”
pressure plus the differential (1 to 5 psi).
Maximum Pressure setting is 14 psig. The set
point is usually less than 5 psig.
Original equipment with this boiler is a Honeywell PA404A1009. Boiler operation is
interrupted when the steam pressure exceeds
the the “CUT IN” pressure plus the differential.
Boiler opera-tion resumes automatically when
the system pres-sure falls below the “CUT IN”
pressure.
1b. Limit Control may incorporate a low water cutoff feature that will interrupt boiler operation
upon loss of water in the boiler. If the low water
cut-off function is activated to interrupt boiler
operation, follow the instructions TO TURN
OFF GAS TO THE APPLIANCE (see Figures
3-5) and contact a qualified service agency.
2. Flame Rollout Switch (FRS). An electrical
device that automatically interrupts the boiler
operation when excessive heat is present in
the combustion area. The control is a thermal
fuse device that will require replacement if it
is activated. If the control has been activated
to interrupt the boiler operation, do not attempt
to restart the boiler. Contact a qualified service
agency.
3. Blocked Vent Switch (BVS) An electrical
device that automatically interrupts the boiler
operation when there is a blockage in the vent
pipe or chimney. The control is located on the
side of the draft hood and is a manual reset
device. If the control is activated to interrupt
operation of the boiler, do not attempt to restart
the boiler. Contact a qualified service agency.
4. Pilot. The pilot provides an ignition source for
the main burners. Your boiler has an
intermittent (spark ignited) pilot. The
intermittent pilot ignites only when there is a call
for heat and extinguishes when the call for heat
ends. See Figure 6.
5. Gas Valve. The gas valve monitors pilot flame
and regulates gas flow to the burners and pilot.
Figure 1: Control Location
USER’S INFORMATION MANUAL
6. Safety Relief Valve. A mechanical device that
protects the boiler against excessive pressure.
The safety relief valve can discharge a large
amount of steam or hot water – the installer
should provide piping to discharge water near
the floor close to a floor drain. If the safety relief
valve discharges water, follow the instructions
TO TURN OFF GAS TO APPLIANCE on the
Lighting Instructions affixed to the inside of the
removable front jacket panel (see Figures 3
through 5 for typical lighting instructions), and
contact a qualified service agency.

C. Lighting Instructions. Instructions to place the
boiler in operation and to turn off the boiler are
shown on the Lighting Instructions Label posted on
the inside of the front jacket panel of the boiler.
Typical lighting instructions are shown in Figures 3
through 5.

WARNING
Product Safety Information
Refractory Ceramic Fiber Product
This appliance contains materials made from
refractory ceramic fibers (RCF). Airborne RCF
fibers, when inhaled, have been classified by
the International Agency for Research on
Cancer (IARC), as a possible carcinogen to
humans. After the RCF materials have been
exposed to temperatures above 1800°F, they
can change into crystalline silica, which has
been classified by the IARC as carcinogenic to
humans. If particles become airborne during
service or repair, inhalation of these particles
may be hazardous to your health.
WARNING
Service on this boiler should be undertaken only
by trained and skilled personnel from a qualified
service agency. Inspections should be performed
at intervals specified in the Installation,
Operation and Maintenance Manual and this
User’s Infor-mation Manual. Maintain manuals in
a legible condition.
Keep boiler area clear and free of combustible
materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors
and liquids.
Do not place any obstructions in boiler room that
will hinder flow of combustion and ventilation
air.
Avoid Breathing Fiber Particulates and Dust
Suppliers of RCF recommend the following
precautions be taken when handling these
materials:
Precautionary Measures:
Provide adequate ventilation.
Wear a NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator.
Wear long sleeved, loose fitting clothing and
gloves to prevent skin contact.
Wear eye goggles.
Minimize airborne dust prior to handling and
removal by water misting the material and
avoiding unnecessary disturbance of materials.
Wash work clothes separately from others.
Rinse washer thoroughly after use.
Discard RCF materials by sealing in an airtight
plastic bag.
First Aid Procedures:
Inhalation: If breathing difficulty or irritation
occurs, move to a location with fresh clean air.
Seek immediate medical attention if symptoms
persist.
Skin Contact: Wash affected area gently with a
mild soap and warm water. Seek immediate
medical attention if irritation persists.
Eye Contact: Flush eyes with water for 15
minutes while holding eyelids apart. Do not rub
eyes. Seek immediate medical attention if
irritation persists.
Ingestion: Drink 1 to 2 glasses of water. Do not
induce vomiting. Seek immediate medical
attention.
A. General Housekeeping (Continuous).
1. Keep boiler area clear and free of combustible
materials and obstructions to the free flow of
combustion and ventilation air to the boiler.
2. Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable
vapors or liquids in the vicinity of the boiler or any
other appliance.
3. Do not store or use sources of hydrocarbons in
the vicinity of the boiler. Sources of hydrocarbons include bleaches, cleaners, chemicals,
sprays, paint removers, fabric softeners and
refrigerants.
4. Check safety relief valve for water leakage. If
leakage exists, contact a qualified service
agency.
B. Inspect Vent System (Monthly).
1. The vent pipe must be continuous to chimney
with no separations, obstructions, or sags. Vent
pipe must be supported at minimum 4 foot
intervals and secured with sheet metal screws.
2. The vent system must not have signs of
continuous wetness. If signs of continuous
wetness are observed, contact a qualified
service agency.
3. The vent system must not have signs of
deterioration from corrosion or other sources. If
there is evidence of deterioration contact a
qualified service agency.
USER’S INFORMATION MANUAL
C. Inspect Pilot and Main Burner Flames (Monthly).
1. Remove front jacket panel by lifting and pulling
out.
2. Adjust thermostat to highest setting. Verify
operation follows Sequence of Operation (see
page 3).
3. View flames through observation port. See
Figure 1.
4. Check pilot flame. See Figure 6. The pilot flame
should be medium blue covering approximately
3/8" to 1/2" of the thermocouple. If the flame is
yellow and lazy, follow instructions TO TURN
OFF GAS TO APPLIANCE (see Figures 3-5),
and contact a qualified service agency.
5. Check main burner flames. See Figure 6. The
flames should have clearly defined inner cones
approximately 1-1/2" high and should have a
very sharp blue color characteristic. If the flame
is yellow and lazy, follow instructions TO TURN
OFF GAS TO APPLIANCE (see Figures 3-5),
and contact a qualified service agency.

6. Adjust thermostats to normal setting.
7. Install front jacket panel.
D. Controls (as required by control manufacturer)¹.
1. Safety Relief Valve. Conduct try lever test as
outlined in manufacturer’s instruction tag on
the safety relief valve.
2. Low Water Cut-off (if used). Follow instructions
provided by control manufacturer.
E. General Inspection and Maintenance (Annual).
For continued safe operation a qualified service
agency must provide a more detailed inspection of
burners, heat exchanger and vent system, and
provide maintenance as specified in the Installation,
Operation and Maintenance Manual.
Figure 6: Intermittent Ignition Pilot Configuration and Flames
Controls maintenance may be part of annual inspection and maintenance by a qualified service agency if annual
frequency is specified by controls manufacturer.
