1.0 INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
UNPACKING
Immediately after unpacking, check for possible shipping damage. If the appliance is
found to be damaged, save the packaging material and contact the carrier within 15
days of delivery.
Before installing, verify that the gas (natural or propane), the elevation from sea level
and the electrical supply agree with the specification on the data plate. NOTE: If this
appliance is being installed above 2000 feet altitude, contact your authorized service
office to assure that the proper orifice size for your elevation has been installed.
LOCATION
The installation location must be kept free and clear of combustibles. Do not obstruct
the flow of combustion and ventilation air. Clearance from combustible construction
must be a minimum of 3 inches from the sides and 6 inches from the back. The
appliance should be installed on a noncombustible floor. Provide adequate clearances
for cleaning, maintenance, service and proper operation.
Sufficient air should be allowed to enter the room to compensate for the amount of air
removed by any ventilating system and for combustion of the gas burners. Do not
obstruct the air flow into and around the appliance. Do not obstruct the flow of flue
gases from the flue duct located at the rear and above the cabinet. Position the
appliance in its final location. Check that there are sufficient clearances to service the
controls, for door swings, etc., so there will be no problem in making the required supply
and drain connections.
Allow enough space between any other piece of equipment or a wall for service access.
Service on the cabinet base may require access to the left and/or right side panels.

WARNING: ELECTRICAL GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) plug for
your protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly
into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle. Do not cut or
remove the grounding prong from this plug. (120V units only).
WIRING DIAGRAM FOR APPLIANCE IS LOCATED INSIDE CABINET DOOR.
EXHAUST FANS AND CANOPIES:
Canopies are set over ranges, ovens, kettles, etc., for ventilation purposes. It is
recommended that a canopy extend 6 inches past the appliance and be located 6 feet 6
inches from the floor. Filters should be installed at an angle of 45 degrees or more with
the horizontal. This position prevents dripping of grease and facilitates collecting the
run-off grease in a drip pan, usually installed with the filter. A strong exhaust fan tends
to create a vacuum in the room and may interfere with burner performance or may
extinguish pilot flames. Makeup air openings approximately equal to the fan area will
relieve such vacuum. In case of unsatisfactory performance on an appliance, check with
the exhaust fan in the “OFF” position.

2.0 SERVICE CONNECTIONS
PLUMBING CONNECTIONS
WARNING: Plumbing connections must comply with applicable
sanitary, safety, and plumbing codes.
WATER SUPPLY CONNECTION
The incoming cold water supply connection, at the rear of the steamer cabinet, requires
3/8" tubing and water pressure of 25-50 psi. A manual shut-off valve must be provided
convenient to the appliance; this valve should be open when the boiler is in operation.
FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION OF THIS APPLIANCE DUE TO POOR WATER
QUALITY IS NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY. SEE WATER QUALITY
STATEMENT, PAGE 4.
DRAIN CONNECTION
The steamer drain (2" IPS) should be piped to a floor drain near the steamer. There
should be no solid drain connection; an “open gap” between the steamer and the floor
drain is required.
GAS CONNECTION
1. The data plate on the cabinet door of the boiler indicates the type of gas your unit is
equipped to burn. DO NOT connect to any other gas type.
Keep the appliance area free and clear from combustible substances. Do not
obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
2. A 3/4" NPT line is provided at the rear for the connection. Each boiler is equipped
with an internal pressure regulator which is set at 3.5" W.C. manifold pressure for
natural gas or 10.5" W.C. for LP gas. Use the 1/8" pipe tap on the burner manifold
for checking pressure.
An adequate gas supply is necessary. Undersized or low pressure lines will restrict the
volume of gas required for satisfactory performance. A steady supply pressure, between
7" W.C. and 14" W.C. for natural gas and 11" W.C. and 14" W.C. for propane gas is
recommended. With all units operating simultaneously, the manifold pressure on all
units should not show any appreciable drop. Fluctuations of more than 25% on natural
gas, and 10% on propane gas, will create pilot problems and affect burner operating
characteristics.
8
Contact your gas company for correct supply line sizes.
Purge the supply line to clean out any dust, dirt, or foreign matter before connecting the
line to the unit.
CAUTION: The pipe thread compound used when installing pipes
must be a type that is resistant to the action of liquified petroleum or
propane gases.
Codes require that a gas shut-off valve be installed in the gas line prior to the steamer.
Make sure the pipes are clean and free of obstructions, dirt, and piping compound.
WARNING: Prior to start-up, check all joints in the gas supply line
for leaks. Use soap and water solution. Do not use an open flame.
Do not connect the appliance to the electrical supply until after the gas connection has
been made.

go off and the boiler will begin operation.
Daily Shutdown Procedure
1. Turn “OFF” the power switch. Observe that the burners go off.
2. Open the manual blowdown valve, if so equipped. If the appliance is equipped with
an automatic blowdown solenoid valve, the boiler’s contents, water and steam, will be
blown out and exhausted through the appliance drain. The cold water solenoid valve
will be activated.
13
Complete Shutdown Procedure
If the appliance is not intended to be operational for a lengthy period of time, shut it
down completely.
1. Open the manual blowdown valve, is so equipped.
2. Shut off all supplies of power, gas and water to the appliance.
Normal Boiler Operating Cycle
Water Fill Cycle
On the initial filling of the boiler, the reset switch must be activated to initialize the safety
lockout circuit. Once the water in the boiler has reached the proper level, the level
control will stop the flow of water to the boiler. As water is consumed in the production
of steam, the level control will replenish water to the boiler.
Firing Cycle
The gas valve is controlled by pressure sensing devices. On initial operation of the
boiler, steam generation should reach 11 psi in approximately 15 minutes. At this point
the “Operating Pressure” switch will close the gas valve. When pressure drops to 9 psi,
the pressure switch opens the gas valve and ignition should occur.
Should the pressure rise to more than 14.5 psi the “Overrride pressure switch” will open
the override solenoid valve, releasing the excess steam.
Condensing Drain
A thermostat is located in the drain assembly and is activated by the temperature of
steam. The thermostat opens the cooling solenoid valve, supplying water to the drain to
condense the steam.
Automatic Blowdown Valve
If the unit has an automatic blowdown valve, it is activated by the main power switch.
The boiler will drain should the main power switch be turned “OFF.”
14
Safety Lockout Conditions
High Temperature Condition
A high temperature safety device is installed on the boiler. Should the temperature
exceed the limit of this device, the boiler will be shut down and be put in a state of
lockout. The “Temperature” pilot light (Red), and the “Standby” pilot (amber), will come
on.
High Pressure Condition
A high pressure safety switch is installed on the boiler. Should the pressure exceed the
limit of this device, the boiler will be shut down and be put into a state of lockout. The
“Pressure” pilot light (Red), and the Stand By pilot (amber), will come on. Should this
device fail to operate, the safety relief valve will open.
Low Water Condition
A second low water safety cut off is supplied with the boiler. Should the water level fall
below normal operating levels, this device will activate and put the boiler in a state of
lockout. The “Low Water” pilot light (Red), and the “Stand By” pilot (amber) will come
on.
15
5.0 PERIODIC MAINTENANCE
Be sure to flush your boiler water level control daily. Failure to follow this procedure can
cause the control to malfunction resulting in serious boiler damage.
The Boiler Water Level Control installed on your boiler requires periodic maintenance.
As boiler water circulates into the float chamber, sand, scale and other sediment may be
deposited in the float chamber. While the chamber has been designed with a large
accumulation bowl, it is necessary to flush the sediment from the chamber by blowing
down the control so that the accumulation of sediment does not interfere with the
movement of the float in the control. Control must be flushed at least once a day.
CAUTION: Protect yourself. When flushing control, hot water
and steam will flow out of the drain.
When flushing control, note water level in gauge glass, allow the boiler to fill if necessary
and also to come up to temperature.
Before flushing control, note that water level in gauge glass is within operating range and
the boiler pressure is at least 6 psi. While the boiler is being fired, open blowdown valve
at bottom of control by rotating the handle counterclockwise about 1/4 turn to fully open
the valve. Opening the blowdown valve also checks the cut-off operation. Float should
drop shutting burner off, hot water and steam will flow out the drain flushing away
sediment.
16
CAUTION: If burner does not shut off during blowdown,
immediately discontinue use of appliance and call for service.
Continue draining water for about fifteen (15) seconds, from control until water is clean.
Manually close valve. Recheck gauge glass. If water level has dropped significantly,
wait for the boiler to restore water level and pressure and repeat if necessary.
WARNING: Disconnect the power supply to the appliance before
cleaning or servicing.
1. If water in sight glass is not clear and appears murky, this indicates poor water quality
and may cause control failure. SEE WATER QUALITY STATEMENT, page 4.
2. Safety valve should be tripped during operation once a week to ensure that it is
functioning properly.
3. Clean around burners and orifices if lint has accumulated.
4. Visually ensure carry over ports are unobstructed.
5. Visually check that the flue is not obstructed.
CLEANING
DO NOT allow water near the electrical components.
At the end of the day, turn the Main Power Switch OFF (automatic blowdown drains the
boiler tank) or if equipped with manual blowdown valve, open it. Wash exterior with mild
detergent and warm water, rinse, and wipe dry. Do not use steel wool on stainless steel
surfaces.
REMOVAL OF LIME SCALE DEPOSITS
The interior of the steam boiler should be inspected at least twice a year by your
authorized servicer to determine whether the boiler needs to be delimed. The servicer
should perform any necessary deliming procedure. See descaling instructions.
17
VENT HOOD
Twice a year check the venting system (hood); remove any obstructions; and clean as
necessary.
BOILER DESCALING INSTRUCTIONS
It is recommended that the boiler be checked every 90 to 120 days for scale build up.
Regular maintenance should be carried out at this time.
If the boiler is descaled, a new Anode should be installed in the boiler to help extend its
life.
1. With boiler empty, close manual blowdown valve. If appliance is equipped with
automatic blowdown, turn water supply OFF to appliance. Turn power switch ON.
This will energize and close blowdown valve.
2. Remove 3/4" pipe plug from fitting on left front of boiler.
3. Insert appropriate hose or tube through fitting and pour in (½) half gallon (U.S.) of
CLR Descaling solution. Or use the Optional Deliming assembly DPA-1 available
from your dealer. For appliances equipped with CSD-1, descaling solution must be
introduced through hand hole.
4. Replace 3/4" pipe plug securely.
5. Open water supply to appliance allowing water to fill boiler to required level.
6. Let appliance cycle, allowing two hours for descaling and cleaning. DO NOT TURN
STEAM ON TO CONNECTED APPLIANCES OR TO UPPER COMPARTMENTS.
7. Open both the blowdown and low water level control valves for complete drainage.
Then close both valves. For appliances equipped with automatic blowdown, turn
OFF power switch and open low water control valve. This will allow complete
drainage. Once drained close water level control valve.
8. Turn appliance switch ON. When boiler is completely filled, turn power switch OFF.
This will rinse and drain boiler. Appliance with manual blowdown valve must be
opened to drain.
9. Complete Step 8 twice to assure boiler is completely rinsed.
10. Appliance is now ready for use.

WARNING: At least twice a year have an authorized service person clean and
adjust the unit for maximum performance.
TO CALIBRATE PRESSURE SWITCHES
NOTE: Pressure switches are factory set. Calibration is only required if pressure
switches are replaced or if adjustment is required.
Pressure switch range is from 1 to 15 psi.
Adjust all settings to maximum on high signal adjustment screw on pressure switches.
Adjust in the following sequence:
- High limit pressure switch.
- Override pressure switch.
- Operating pressure switch.
- Turning screw clockwise to increase, counterclockwise to decrease pressure.
- Use relief valve to release pressure from boiler for setting adjustments.
1. HIGH LIMIT PRESSURE SWITCHES
Allow pressure to build until unit shuts off. This should occur at 15 psi. Set the high
signal to switch at 14.5 psi on the gauge and the low signal to 13.0 psi.
2. OVERRIDE PRESSURE SWITCHES
Allow pressure to increase to 13 psi. Set the high signal to switch at 13 psi on the
gauge and the low signal to 11 psi.
3. OPERATING PRESSURE SWITCHES
Set the high signal to switch at 11 psi on the gauge and the low signal to 9 psi.
4
Release pressure in boiler to below 9 psi. Burner will come on. Once pressure has
reached 11 psi, burners will shut off. Repeat this process several times to make sure
burners come on at 9 psi and shut off at 11 psi.
Once completed, pressure switches have been calibrated.
Should your unit not have the High Limit pressure switch, start procedure at Override
pressure switch.
