FEATURES AND COMPONENTS
The Hydrocannon (self-cleaning system)
creating a spark at the pilot assembly. See Figure 3. Pilot
gas is ignited and burns during each running cycle. The main
burner and pilot gases are cut off during the OFF cycle.
Pilot gas ignition is proven by the pilot sensor. Main burner
ignition will not occur if the pilot sensor does not first sense
pilot ignition.
These units include The Hydrocannon (Self-Cleaning System)
installed in the front water inlet, See Figure 1. The Hydrocannon
inlet tube can only be used in the front water inlet connection. Do
not install the Hydrocannon inlet tube in either the top or back inlet
water connection. The Hydrocannon must be oriented correctly for
proper function. There is a marked range on pipe nipple portion
of the Hydrocannon, that must be aligned with top of inlet spud. A
label above the jacket hole has an arrow that will point to marked
portion of pipe nipple if the orientation is correct. If the arrow does
not point within the marked range on pipe nipple, adjust the pipe
nipple to correct. A pipe union is supplied with the Hydrocannon
to reduce probability of misaligning the Hydrocannon accidentally
while tightening the connection to inlet water supply line. Improper
orientation of the Hydrocannon can cause poor performance of
heater and can significantly reduce outlet water temperatures
during heavy draws.
IGNITION MODULE
FIGURE 3.
Note: The Hydrocannon may have 1, 3 or 7 cross tubes.
Automatic Flue Damper
FIGURE 1.
High Limit Switch
All units are equipped with an automatic flue damper that
reduces heat loss during the OFF cycles.
The digital thermostat (Figure 2) contains the high limit (energy
cutout) switch. The high limit switch interrupts main burner gas flow
should the water temperature reach 203°F (95°C).
Each automatic flue damper drive assembly is equipped with a
“Service Switch”, as shown in Figure 4
T h e “ S e r v i c e S w i tc h” h a s 2 p o s i t i o n s: AU TO M AT I C
OPERATION and HOLD OPEN DAMPER. For normal operation
the switch should be in the AUTOMATIC OPERATION position.
In the event of high limit switch operation, the water heater cannot be
restarted unless the water temperature is reduced to approximately
120°F (49°C). The high limit reset button on the front of the control
then needs to be depressed.
If there is a problem with the damper the “Service Switch”
can be placed in the HOLD OPEN DAMPER position. When
the switch is placed in the HOLD OPEN DAMPER position
the damper disc will rotate to the open position and the
heater may be used until vent assembly is repaired or
replaced. DO NOT turn the damper disc manually; damage
will occur to the drive assembly if operated manually. Refer
to TESTING DAMPER OPERATION section of this manual
for additional information.
Continued manual resetting of high limit control, preceded by higher
than usual water temperature is evidence of high limit switch operation.
The following is a possible reason for high limit switch operation:
• A malfunction in the thermostatic controls would allow the
gas control valve to remain open causing water temperature
to exceed the thermostat setting. The water temperature
would continue to rise until high limit switch operation.
Contact your dealer or service agent if continued high limit switch
operation occurs.

INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS
Locating The Water Heater
Flammable items, pressurized containers or any other potential
fire hazardous articles must never be placed on or adjacent to
the heater. Open containers or flammable material should not be
stored or used in the same room with the heater.
CAUTION
The heater must not be located in an area where it will be subject
to freezing.
Property Damage Hazard
• All water heaters eventually leak.
Locate it near a floor drain. The heater should be located in an
area where leakage from heater or connections will not result
in damage to adjacent area or to lower floors of the structure.
• Do not install without adequate drainage.
When such locations cannot be avoided, a suitable metal drain
pan should be installed under heater. Such pans should be
fabricated with sides at least 2” deep, with length and width at
least 2” greater than diameter of heater and must be piped to
an adequate drain. Pan must not restrict combustion air flow.
When installing the heater, consideration must be given to proper
location. Location selected should be as close to the stack or chimney
as practicable, with adequate air supply and as centralized with the
piping system as possible.
Clearances
These heaters are approved for installation on combustible flooring
in an alcove when the minimum clearance from combustion or
non-combustible construction are followed as indicated in Figure 6
and Table 4.
Fire or Explosion Hazard
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
In all installations the minimum combustible clearances from draft
hood surface or vent piping shall be 6” (152mm). Vent piping passing
through a combustible wall or ceiling must be a continuous run
(no joints) and retain 6” (152mm) clearance unless an approved
reducing thimble is used.
Avoid all ignition sources if you smell gas.
Do not expose water heater controls to excessive gas
pressure.
Use only the gas shown on the water heater rating label.
Maintain required clearances to combustibles.
A service clearance of 24” (610mm) should be maintained from
serviceable parts, such as relief valves, baffles, thermostats, cleanout
openings or drain valves.
Keep ignition sources away from faucets after extended
periods of non-use.
Read instruction manual before
installing, using or servicing
water heater.
TABLE 4. Installation Clearances
A
B
(RIGHT SIDE) (LEFTSIDE)
There is a risk in using fuel burning appliances such as gas water
heaters in rooms, garages or other areas where gasoline, other
flammable liquids or engine driven equipment or vehicles are stored,
operated or repaired. Flammable vapors are heavy and travel along
the floor and may be ignited by the heater’s igniter or main burner
flames causing fire or explosion. Some local codes permit operation
of gas appliances in such areas if they are installed 18” or more
above the floor. This may reduce the risk if location in such an area
cannot be avoided.
Do not install this water heater directly on a carpeted floor. A fire
hazard may result. Instead the water heater must be placed on a
metal or wood panel extending beyond the full width and depth by at
least 3 inches in any direction. If the heater is installed in a carpeted
alcove, the entire floor shall be covered by the panel. Also, see the
DRAINING requirements in MAINTENANCE Section.
The heater shall be located or protected so it is not subject to physical
damage by a moving vehicle.

Insulation Blanket
Breathing Hazard - Carbon Monoxide Gas
Do not obstruct water heater air intake
with insulating blanket.
Gas and carbon monoxide detectors
are available.
Install water heater in accordance with
the instruction manual.
Breathing carbon monoxide can cause brain damage or
death. Always read and understand instruction manual.
Insulation blankets are available to the general public for external
use on gas water heaters but are not necessary with these
products. The purpose of an insulation blanket is to reduce the
standby heat loss encountered with storage tank heaters. The
water heaters covered by this manual meet or exceed the Energy
Policy Act standards with respect to insulation and standby heat
loss requirements, making an insulation blanket unnecessary.
Should you choose to apply an insulation blanket to this
heater, you should follow these instructions. See the Features
and Components section of this manual for identification of
components mentioned below. Failure to follow these instructions
can restrict the air flow required for proper combustion, potentially
resulting in fire, asphyxiation, serious personal injury or death.
• DO NOT apply insulation to the top of the water heater, as
this will interfere with safe operation of the draft hood.
• DO NOT cover the gas control valve, thermostat or the
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve.
• DO NOT allow insulation to come within 2” (5 cm) of the
burners, to prevent blockage of combustion air flow to the
burners.
• DO NOT allow insulation to come within 9 inches (23 cm)
of floor, (within 2 inches (5 cm) of bottom cover) to prevent
blockage of combustion air flow to the burners..
• DO NOT cover the instruction manual. Keep it on the side of
the water heater or nearby for future reference.
• DO obtain new warning and instruction labels from the
manufacturer for placement on the blanket directly over the
existing labels.
• DO inspect the insulation blanket frequently to make certain
it does not sag, thereby obstructing combustion air flow.
FIGURE 6.
NSF Leg Kit
The NSF Leg Kit (part number 9003425205) is needed only
for applications that must conform to NSF/ANSI Standard 5.
Installation of the NSF leg kit will increase the height of the unit
and all connection points by 3 inches. See Figure 7.
Follow these steps to install the Leg Kit:
1. Unit needs to be lifted in a way not to damage unit or laid on
it’s side to access the bottom of the legs.
2. Slide leg extension under leg and the bolt up through the
bottom hole located in the bottom of the leg.
3. Once in place, screw nut down and secure.
4. Front of leg should line up with front of leg extension as
shown to make sure weight of unit is distributed through the
leg extension.
Hard Water
Where hard water conditions exist, water softening or the
threshold type of water treatment is recommended. This will
protect the dishwashers, coffee urns, water heaters, water piping
and other equipment.
See the Maintenance Section in this manual for sediment and
lime scale removal procedures.
Circulation Pumps
A circulating pump is used when a system requires a circulating
loop or there is a storage tank used in conjunction with the water
heater. See Water Piping Diagrams in this manual for installation
location of circulating pumps.
See the Circulation Pump Wiring Diagrams in this manual for
electrical hookup information. Install in accordance with the
current edition of the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70 or the
Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.
All-bronze circulating pumps are recommended for used with
commercial water heaters.
Some circulating pumps are manufactured with sealed bearings
and do not require further lubrication. Some circulating pumps

As the elevation above sea level is increased, there is less
oxygen per cubic foot of air. Therefore, the heater input rate
should be reduced at high altitudes for satisfactory operation
with the reduced oxygen supply. Failure to make this reduction
would result in an over firing of the heater causing sooting,
poor combustion and/or unsatisfactory heater performance.
L2 NEUTRAL
FIGURE 9.
High Altitude Installations
Ratings specified by manufacturers for most appliances apply
for elevations up to 2000 feet (610m). For elevations above
2000 feet (610), ratings must be reduced at the rate of 4%
for each 1000 feet (305m) above sea level. For example, if a
heater is rated at 78,000 Btuh (22.9 Kwh) at sea level, to rate
the heater at 4000 feet (1219m), you subtract 4 (once for each
thousand feet) x.04 (4% input reduction) x 78,000 (original
rating) from the original rating.
Fire and Explosion Hazard
Under no circumstances should the
input exceed the rate shown on the
water heater’s rating label.
Overfiring could result in fire or
explosion.
Gas and carbon monoxide detectors are
available.
Therefore, to calculate the input rating at 4,000 feet (1219m):
4 x .04 x 78,000 = 12,480 Btuh (3.7 Kwh), 78,000 (22.9 Kwh) 12,480 (3.7 Kwh) = 65,520 Btuh (19.2 Kwh). At 6000 feet (1829m)
the correct input rating should be 59,280 Btuh (17.4 Kwh).

INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
4. When installing multiple water heaters in the same gas supply
system it is recommended that individual positive lock-up gas
pressure regulators be installed at each unit.
Gas Supply Systems
Low pressure building gas supply systems are defined as those
systems that cannot under any circumstances exceed 14”
W.C. (1/2 PSI Gauge). These systems do not require pressure
regulation. Measurements should be taken to insure that gas
pressures are stable and fall within the requirements stated on
the water heater rating plate. Readings should be taken with
all gas burning equipment off (static pressure) and with all gas
burning equipment running at maximum rate (dynamic pressure).
The gas supply pressure must be stable within 1.5” W.C.
from static to dynamic pressure to provide good performance.
Pressure drops that exceed 1.5” W.C. may cause rough starting,
noisy combustion or nuisance outages. Increases or spikes
in static pressure during off cycles may cause failure to ignite
or in severe cases damage to appliance gas valves. If your
low pressure system does NOT meet these requirements, the
installer is responsible for the corrections.
Power Supply
The water heaters covered in this manual require a 120 VAC,
1Ø (single phase), 60Hz, 15 amp power supply and must also
be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the
absence of local codes, with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/
NFPA 70 or the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.
Water Temperature Control And Mixing Valves
Water temperature over 125°F (52°C)
can cause severe burns instantly
resulting in severe injury or death.
Children, the elderly and the
physically or mentally disabled are at
highest risk for scald injury.
High Pressure building supply systems use pressures that
exceed 14” W.C. (1/2 PSI Gauge). These systems must use field
supplied regulators to lower the gas pressure to less than 14”
W.C. (1/2 PSI Gauge). Water heaters require gas regulators that
are properly sized for the water heater input and deliver the rating
plate specified pressures. Gas supply systems where pressure
exceeds 5 PSI often require multiple regulators to achieve desired
pressures. Systems in excess of 5 PSI building pressure should
be designed by gas delivery professionals for best performance.
Water heaters connected to gas supply systems that exceed 14”
W.C. (1/2 PSI Gauge) at any time must be equipped with a gas
supply regulator.
Feel water before bathing or showering.
Temperature limiting devices such as
mixing valves must be installed
when required by codes and to
ensure safe temperatures at fixtures.
Water heated to a temperature which will satisfy clothes washing, dish
washing, and other sanitizing needs can scald and cause permanent
injury upon contact. Short repeated heating cycles caused by small
hot water uses can cause temperatures at the point of use to exceed
the water heater’s temperature setting by up to 20°F (11°C).
All models require a minimum gas supply pressure of 4.5" W.C. for
natural gas and 11.0" W.C. for propane gas. The minimum supply
pressure is measured while gas is flowing (dynamic pressure).
The supply pressure should never fall below 4.5" W.C. for natural
gas and 11.0" W.C. for propane gas. The supply pressure should
be measured with all gas fired appliances connected to the
common main firing at full capacity. If the supply pressure drops
more than 1.5” W.C. as gas begins to flow to the water heater
then the supply gas system including the gas line and/or the
gas regulator may be restricted or undersized. See Supply Gas
Regulator section and Gas Piping section of this manual. The gas
valve on all models has a maximum gas supply pressure limit of
14” W.C. The maximum supply pressure is measured while gas is
not flowing (static pressure).
Some people are more likely to be permanently injured by hot water
than others. These include the elderly, children, the infirm and the
physically/mentally disabled. Table 5 shows approximate time-to-burn
relationship for normal adult skin. If anyone using hot water provided
by the water heater being installed fits into one of these groups or if
there is a local code or state law requiring a certain water temperature
at the point of use, then special precautions must be taken.
In addition to using the lowest possible temperature setting that
satisfies the demand of the application a Mixing Valve should be
installed at the water heater (see Figure 10) or at the hot water taps
to further reduce system water temperature.
Mixing valves are available at plumbing supply stores. Consult a
Qualified Installer or Service Agency. Follow mixing valve manufacturer’s
instructions for installation of the valves.
Supply Gas Regulator
The maximum allowable gas supply pressure for this water heater
is 14 inches W.C. (3.48 kPa). Install a positive lock-up gas pressure
regulator in the gas supply line if inlet gas pressure can exceed 14
inches W.C. (3.48 kPa) at any time. Regulators must be sized/used
according to manufacturer’s specifications.
If a positive lock-up regulator is required follow these instructions:
1. Positive lock-up gas pressure regulators must be rated at or above
the input Btu/hr rating of the water heater they supply.
2. Positive lock-up gas pressure regulator(s) should be installed no closer
than 3 equivalent feet (1 meter) and no farther than 8 equivalent
feet (2.4 meters) from water heater’s inlet gas connection.
3. After installing the positive lock-up gas pressure regulator(s) an
initial nominal supply pressure setting of 7.0” W.C. while the water
heater is operating is recommended and will generally provide good
water heater operation. Some addition adjustment maybe required
later to maintain a steady gas supply pressure.

Dishwashing Machines
Can result in overheating and
excessive tank pressure.
All dishwashing machines meeting the National Sanitation
Foundation requirements are designed to operate with water flow
pressures between 15 and 25 pounds per square inch (103 kPa
and 173 kPa). Flow pressures above 25 pounds per square inch
(173 kPa), or below 15 pounds per square inch (103 kPa), will
result in improperly sanitized dishes. Where pressures are high,
a water pressure reducing or flow regulating control valve should
be used in the 180°F (82°C) line to the dishwashing machine and
should be adjusted to deliver water pressure between these limits.
Can cause serious injury or death.
This water heater is provided with a properly rated/sized and certified
combination Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve (T&P valve) by
the manufacturer. The valve is certified by a nationally recognized
testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection of production
of listed equipment of materials as meeting the requirements for
Pressure Relief Valves for Hot Water Supply Systems, ANSI Z21.22
• CSA 4.4, and the code requirements of ASME.
The National Sanitation Foundation also recommends circulation
of 180°F (82°C) water. The circulation flow rate should be just
enough to provide 180°F (82°C) water at the point of take-off to
the dishwashing machine.
If replaced, the new T&P valve must meet the requirements
of local codes, but not less than a combination TemperaturePressure Relief Valve rated/sized and certified as indicated in
the above paragraph. The new valve must be marked with a
maximum set pressure not to exceed the marked hydrostatic
working pressure of the water heater (150 psi = 1,035 kPa) and
a discharge capacity not less than the water heater Btu/hr or kW
input rate as shown on the water heater’s model rating label.
Adjust flow by throttling a full port ball valve installed in the
circulating line on the outlet side of the pump. Never throttle flow
on the suction side of a pump. See Water Piping Diagrams in
this manual.
Note: These water heaters meet the NSF Standard 5 for
sanitary installations when used with the leg kit part number
9003425205.
NOTE: In addition to the factory installed Temperature-Pressure
Relief Valve on the water heater, each remote storage tank that
may be installed and piped to a water heating appliance must also
have its own properly sized, rated and approved TemperaturePressure Relief Valve installed. Call the toll free technical
support phone number listed on the back cover of this manual
for technical assistance in sizing a Temperature-Pressure Relief
Valve for remote storage tanks.
Closed Water Systems
Water supply systems may, because of code requirements
or such conditions as high line pressure, among others, have
installed devices such as pressure reducing valves, check
valves, and back flow preventers. Devices such as these cause
the water system to be a closed system.
For safe operation of the water heater, the Temperature-Pressure
Relief Valve must not be removed from its designated opening
nor plugged. The Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve must be
installed directly into the fitting of the water heater designed for
the pressure relief valve . Install discharge piping so that any
discharge will exit the pipe within 6 inches (15.2 cm) above an
adequate floor drain, or external to the building. In cold climates
it is recommended that it be terminated at an adequate drain
inside the building. 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. Excessive length,
over 30 feet (9.14 m), or use of more than four elbows can cause
restriction and reduce the discharge capacity of the valve.
Thermal Expansion
As water is heated, it expands (thermal expansion). In a closed
system the volume of water will grow when it is heated. As the
volume of water grows there will be a corresponding increase
in water pressure due to thermal expansion. Thermal expansion
can cause premature tank failure (leakage). This type of failure
is not covered under the limited warranty. Thermal expansion
can also cause intermittent Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve
operation: water discharged from the valve due to excessive
pressure build up. This condition is not covered under the limited
warranty. The Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve is not intended
for the constant relief of thermal expansion.
14
Contaminated Air
No valve or other obstruction is to be placed between the
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve and the tank. Do not connect
discharge piping directly to the drain unless a 6” (15.2 cm)
air gap is provided. To prevent bodily injury, hazard to life, or
property damage, the relief valve must be allowed to discharge
water in adequate 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.
Breathing Hazard - Carbon Monoxide Gas
Install water heater in accordance with
the Instruction Manual and NFPA 54 or
CAN/CSA-B149.1.
To avoid injury, combustion and ventilation
air must be taken from outdoors.
Do not place chemical vapor emitting
products near water heater.
CAUTION
Water Damage Hazard
• Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve discharge
Breathing carbon monoxide can cause brain damage or
death. Always read and understand instruction manual.
pipe must terminate at adequate drain.
Corrosion of the flue ways and vent system may occur if air for
combustion contains certain chemical vapors. Such corrosion
may result in failure and risk of asphyxiation.
T&P Valve Discharge Pipe Requirements:
• Shall not be smaller in size than the outlet pipe size of the
valve, or have any reducing couplings or other restrictions.
• Shall not be plugged or blocked.
• Shall not be exposed to freezing temperatures.
• Shall be of material listed for hot water distribution.
• Shall be installed so as to allow complete drainage of both
the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve and the discharge
pipe.
• Must terminate a maximum of six inches above a floor
drain or external to the building. In cold climates, it is
recommended that the discharge pipe be terminated at an
adequate drain inside the building.
• Shall not have any valve or other obstruction between the
pressure relief valve and the drain.
Combustion air that is contaminated can greatly diminish the life
span of the water heater and water heater components such as
hot surface igniters and burners. Propellants of aerosol sprays,
beauty shop supplies, water softener chemicals and chemicals
used in dry cleaning processes that are present in the combustion,
ventilation or ambient air can cause such damage.
Do not store products of this sort near the water heater. Air which
is brought in contact with the water heater should not contain any
of these chemicals. If necessary, uncontaminated air should be
obtained from remote or outdoor sources. The limited warranty
is voided when failure of water heater is due to a corrosive
atmosphere. (See limited warranty for complete terms and
conditions).
Air Requirements
Burn hazard.
Breathing Hazard - Carbon Monoxide Gas
Hot water discharge.
Install water heater in accordance with
the Instruction Manual and NFPA 54 or
CAN/CSA-B149.1.
To avoid injury, combustion and ventilation
air must be taken from outdoors.
Do not place chemical vapor emitting
products near water heater.
Keep clear of TemperaturePressure Relief Valve
discharge outlet.
The Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve must be manually operated
at least twice 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 in this manual, and replace the TemperaturePressure Relief Valve with a properly rated/sized new one.
Breathing carbon monoxide can cause brain damage or
death. Always read and understand instruction manual.
For safe operation an adequate supply of fresh uncontaminated
air for combustion and ventilation must be provided.
An insufficient supply of air can cause recirculation of combustion
products resulting in contamination that may be hazardous to
life. Such a condition often will result in a yellow, luminous burner
flame, causing sooting of the combustion chamber, burners and
flue tubes and creates a risk of asphyxiation.
NOTE: The purpose of a Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve is to
prevent excessive temperatures and pressures in the storage tank.
The T&P valve is not intended for the constant relief of thermal
expansion. A properly sized thermal expansion tank must be
installed on all closed systems to control thermal expansion, see
Closed Water Systems and Thermal Expansion on page 14.
Do not install the water heater in a confined space unless an
adequate supply of air for combustion and ventilation is brought
in to that space using the methods described in the Confined
Space section that follows.
Never obstruct the flow of ventilation air. If you have any doubts
or questions at all, call your gas supplier. Failure to provide the
proper amount of combustion air can result in a fire or explosion
and cause property damage, serious bodily injury or death.
If you do not understand these instructions or have any questions
regarding the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve call the toll
free number listed on the back cover of this manual for technical
assistance.
15
Unconfined Space
Direct Vent Appliances
An Unconfined Space is one whose volume IS NOT LESS THAN
50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu/hr (4.8 cubic meters per kW) of the
total input rating of all appliances installed in the space. Rooms
communicating directly with the space, in which the appliances
are installed, through openings not furnished with doors, are
considered a part of the unconfined space.
Appliances installed in a Direct Vent configuration that derive all
air for combustion from the outdoor atmosphere through sealed
intake air piping are not factored in the total appliance input Btu/
hr calculations used to determine the size of openings providing
fresh air into confined spaces.
Makeup air requirements for the operation of exhaust fans,
kitchen ventilation systems, clothes dryers and fireplaces shall
also be considered in determining the adequacy of a space to
provide combustion, ventilation and dilution air.
Where exhaust fans are installed, additional air shall be provided
to replace the exhausted air. When an exhaust fan is installed
in the same space with a water heater, sufficient openings to
provide fresh air must be provided that accommodate the
requirements for all appliances in the room and the exhaust fan.
Undersized openings will cause air to be drawn into the room
through the water heater’s vent system causing poor combustion.
Sooting, serious damage to the water heater and the risk of fire
or explosion may result. It can also create a risk of asphyxiation.
Exhaust Fans
Unusually Tight Construction
In unconfined spaces in buildings, infiltration may be adequate
to provide air for combustion, ventilation and dilution of flue
gases. However, in buildings of unusually tight construction (for
example, weather stripping, heavily insulated, caulked, vapor
barrier, etc.) additional air must be provided using the methods
described in the Confined Space section that follows.
Louvers and Grilles
The free areas of the fresh air openings in the instructions that
follow do not take in to account the presence of louvers, grilles or
screens in the openings.
Confined Space
The required size of openings for combustion, ventilation and
dilution air shall be based on the “net free area” of each opening.
Where the free area through a design of louver or grille or screen
is known, it shall be used in calculating the size of opening
required to provide the free area specified. Where the louver and
grille design and free area are not known, it shall be assumed
that wood louvers will have 25% free area and metal louvers and
grilles will have 75% free area. Non motorized louvers and grilles
shall be fixed in the open position.
A Confined Space is one whose volume is less than 50 cubic
feet per 1,000 Btu/hr (4.8 cubic meters per kW) of the total input
rating of all appliances installed in the space.
Openings must be installed to provide fresh air for combustion,
ventilation and dilution in confined spaces. The required size for
the openings is dependent on the method used to provide fresh
air to the confined space and the total Btu/hr input rating of all
appliances installed in the space.
VENTING INSTALLATION
Venting
Each adapter fits on top of the installed flue damper. Use only vent
reducers supplied with the unit. The venting must comply with the
current editions of the NATIONAL FUEL GAS CODE, ANSI Z223.1/
NFPA 54 or NATURAL GAS AND PROPANE INSTALLATION CODE
CAN/CSA-B149.1
THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THIS SECTION ON VENTING MUST
BE FOLLOWED TO AVOID CHOKED COMBUSTION OR
RECIRCULATION OF FLUE GASES. SUCH CONDITIONS CAUSE
SOOTING OR RISKS OF FIRE AND ASPHYXIATION.
Heater must be protected from freezing downdrafts.
Remove all soot or other obstructions from the chimney that will retard
a free draft.
Type B venting is recommended with these heaters. For typical venting
application see TECHNICAL DATA VENTING on pages 19 and 20.
This water heater must be vented in compliance with all local codes,
the current revision of the National Fuel Gas Code (ANSI-Z223.1) and
with the Category I Venting Tables.
If any part of the vent system are exposed to ambient temperatures
below 40°F it must be insulated to prevent condensation.
• Do not connect the heater to a common vent or chimney with solid
fuel burning equipment. This practice is prohibited by many local
building codes as is the practice of venting gas fired equipment to
the duct work of ventilation systems.
FIGURE 11.
• Where a separate vent connection is not available and the vent pipe
from the heater must be connected to a common vent with an oil
burning furnace, the vent pipe should enter the smaller common
vent or chimney at a point above the large vent pipe.

in conjunction with the water heater thermostat, the following
codes must be adhered to. Field wiring should conform to
the current edition of the National Electrical Code NFPA 70.
For Canadian installations the electrical connections and
grounding shall be done in accordance with the current edition
WATER HEATER INSTALLATION
Water Line Connections
Water Piping Diagrams
The water piping installation must conform to these instructions
and to all local code authority having jurisdiction. Good practice
requires that all heavy piping be supported.
This manual provides detailed water piping diagrams for typical
methods of application for the water heaters, see Water Piping
Diagrams beginning on page 40.
Read and observe all requirements in the following sections
before installation of the water piping begins:
The water heater may be installed by itself, or with a separate
storage tank. When used with a separate storage tank, the
circulation may be either by gravity or by means of circulating
pump. Adjust flow by throttling a full port ball valve installed in the
circulating line on the outlet side of the pump. Never throttle flow
on the suction side of a pump. See the Water Piping Diagrams
beginning on page 40.

Gas Piping
Be sure the gas meter has sufficient capacity to supply the full rated
gas input of the water heater as well as the requirements of all other
gas fired equipment supplied by the meter. If gas meter is too small, ask
the gas company to install a larger meter having adequate capacity.
Contact your local gas service company to ensure that adequate
gas service is available and to review applicable installation codes
for your area.
Size the main gas line in accordance with Table 7. The figures shown
are for straight lengths of pipe at 0.5 in. W.C. pressure drop, which is
considered normal for low pressure systems. Note: Fittings such as
elbows, tees and line regulators will add to the pipe pressure drop.
Also refer to the latest version of the National Fuel Gas Code.
GAS PIPING AND SEDIMENT TRAP INSTALLATION
Schedule 40 Steel or Wrought Iron Pipe is the preferred material
for the gas line of this water heater. It is imperative to follow the
sizing recommendations in the latest version of the National Fuel
Gas Code if Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing (CSST) is used as
the gas line for this water heater.
The heater is not intended for operation at higher than 14.0" W.C.natural gas, (1/2 pound per square inch gage) supply gas pressure.
Exposure to higher supply pressure may cause damage to the
gas valve which could result in fire or explosion. If overpressure
has occurred such as through improper testing of gas lines or
emergency malfunction of the supply system, the gas valve must be
checked for safe operation. Make sure that the outside vents on the
supply regulators and the safety vent valves are protected against
blockage. These are parts of the gas supply system, not the heater.
Vent blockage may occur during ice storms.

Leak test before placing the water
heater in operation.
Disconnect gas piping and main gas
shutoff valve before leak testing.
Install sediment trap in accordance
with NFPA 54.
Any time work is done on the gas supply system perform a leak test
to avoid the possibility of fire or explosion.
1.For test pressures exceeding 1/2 psi (3.45 kPa) disconnect the
water heater and its Main Gas Shutoff Valve from the gas supply
piping system during testing, see Figure 21. The gas supply line
must be capped when disconnected from the water heater.
It is important to guard against gas valve fouling from contaminants in
gas ways. Such fouling may cause improper operation, fire or explosion.
2.For test pressures of 1/2 psi (3.45 kpa) or less, the water heater
need not be disconnected, but must be isolated from the supply
gas line by closing the Main Gas Shutoff Valve during testing.
If copper supply lines are used they must be internally tinned and
certified for gas service. Before attaching the gas line, be sure that
all gas pipe is clean on the inside.
3.Coat all supply gas line joints and connections upstream of the
water heater with a non-corrosive soap and water solution to
test for leaks. Bubbles indicate a gas leak. Do not use matches,
candles, flame or other sources of ignition for this purpose.
To trap any dirt or foreign material in the gas supply line, a sediment
trap must be incorporated in the piping (see Figure 21). The sediment
trap must be readily accessible and not subject to freezing conditions.
Install in accordance with recommendations of serving gas suppliers.
Refer to the latest version of the National Fuel Gas Code.
4.Repair any leaks before placing the water heater in operation.
Purging
To prevent damage, care must be taken not to apply too much torque
when attaching gas supply pipe to gas valve inlet.
Gas line purging is required with new piping or systems in which air
has entered.
Apply joint compounds (pipe dope) sparingly and only to the male
threads of pipe joints. Do not apply compounds to the first two threads.
Use compounds resistant to the action of liquefied petroleum gases.
Purging should be performed per the current edition of NFPA 54 the
National Fuel Gas Code.

Adjustments
FAILURE TO CORRECT BACK DRAFTS MAY CAUSE AIR
CONTAMINATION AND UNSAFE CONDITIONS.
ON INITIAL STARTUP SOME ADJUSTMENTS MAY BE NECESSARY.
• If the back draft cannot be corrected by the normal method or
if a suitable draft cannot be obtained, a blower type flue gas
exhauster must be employed to assure proper venting and
correct combustion.
Check Manifold and inlet gas pressures (see GAS SUPPLY
SYSTEMS on page 13 and CHECKING THE INPUT on page 29-30.)
Check Pilot Burner (See Pilot Burner section on page 34.)
TESTING DAMPER OPERATION
Checking The Input
With the Service Switch in the AUTOMATIC OPERATION
position, check the operation of the flue damper three (3) times
with the water operating controls for proper operating sequence:
For installation locations with elevations above 2000 feet, refer
to HIGH ALTITUDE INSTALLATIONS section of this manual for
input reduction procedure.
• The damper disc must be open (in the vertical position) before
the ignition and combustion process begins.
• The damper disc must be in the open position when the main
burner is firing.
1. Attach a pressure gauge or a manometer to the manifold
pressure tap on the gas control valve and refer to Table 8,
for correct manifold pressure.
• The gas control valve must close and the main burner must
have ceased firing before the damper disc begins its return to
the closed (horizontal) position.
2. Use this formula to “clock” the meter. Be sure that other
gas consuming appliances are not operating during this
interval.
If during testing of the operation of the damper you find that
there is a problem with the operation of the water heater when
the Service Switch is in the AUTOMATIC OPERATION position:
Reset the Service Switch to the HOLD OPEN DAMPER position
and check operation again.
If the water heater does operate when placed in the HOLD OPEN
DAMPER position:
• Refer to the EFFIKAL RVGP-FSF-SERIES TROUBLESHOOTING
GUIDE on page 37.
If the water heater does not operate with the Service Switch in
either position:
• Refer to the Troubleshooting Sections and Troubleshooting
Checklist.
Checking Venting
The following steps shall be followed with each appliance connected
to the venting system placed in operation, while any other appliances
connected to the venting system are not in operation.
(3600/T) x H = Btuh
T = Time in seconds to burn one cubic foot of gas.
H = Btu’s per cubic foot of gas.
Btuh = Actual heater input.
Example:
T = 15.1 seconds
H = 1050 Btu
Btuh = ?
(3600/15.1) x 1050 = 250,000
TABLE 8.
APPROXIMATE TIME REQUIRED TO CONSUME
1 CU. FT. OF GAS AT FULL CAPACITY
1. Seal any unused openings in the venting system.
2. Inspect the venting system for proper size and horizontal pitch, as
required in the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1or the CAN/
CGA B149 Installation Codes and these instructions. Determine
that there is no blockage or restriction, leakage, corrosion and
other deficiencies which could cause an unsafe condition.
3. So far as is practical, close all building doors and windows
and all doors between the space in which the water heater(s)
connected to the venting system are located and other spaces
of the building. Turn on all appliances not connected to the
venting system. Turn on all exhaust fans, such as range hoods
and bathroom exhausts, so they shall operate at maximum
speed. Close fireplace dampers.
4. Follow the lighting instruction. Place the water heater being
inspected in operation. Adjust thermostat so water heater shall
operate continuously.
5. Test for draft hood spillage at the relief opening after 5 minutes
of main burner operation.
6. After it has been determined that each appliance connected to
the venting system properly vents when tested as outlined above,
return doors, windows, exhaust fans, fireplace dampers and any
other gas burning appliance to their previous conditions of use.
7. If improper venting is observed during any of the above tests,
the venting system must be corrected.

MAINTENANCE
Venting System
Examine the venting system every six months for obstructions
and/or deterioration of the vent piping.
Remove all soot or other obstructions from chimney which will
retard free draft.
Remote Storage Tank Temperature Control
The water temperature in the remote storage tank (if used) is
controlled by the storage tank temperature control. The sensing
element is mounted in the hot water storage tank, see Water
Piping Diagram section.
Figure 25.
If the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve on water heater weeps
or discharges periodically, this may be due to thermal expansion.
A change in water temperature in the storage tank lower than
the tank temperature control setting will cause the sensor to
activate the circulating pump. The pump then circulates the
water through the heater where the thermostat senses the drop
in water temperature and activates main burner operation of the
water heater.
NOTE: Excessive water pressure is the most common cause
of Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve leakage. Excessive
water system pressure is most often caused by "thermal
expansion" in a "closed system." See Closed Water Systems
and Thermal Expansion on page 14. The TemperaturePressure Relief Valve is not intended for the constant relief
of thermal expansion.
If the storage tank temperature control is out of calibration, replace
with new control.
SHOULD OVERHEATING OCCUR OR THE GAS SUPPLY FAIL
TO SHUT OFF, TURN OFF THE MANUAL GAS CONTROL VALVE
TO THE Water heater.
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve leakage due to pressure build
up in a closed system that does not have a thermal expansion
tank installed is not covered under the limited warranty. Thermal
expansion tanks must be installed on all closed water systems.

Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve
must comply with ANSI Z21.22CSA 4.4 and ASME code.
Keep clear of TemperaturePressure Relief Valve

Properly sized temperaturepressure relief valve must be
installed in opening provided.
It is recommended that the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve
should be checked to ensure that it is in operating condition every
6 months.
Can result in overheating and
excessive tank pressure.
When checking the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve operation,
make sure that (1) no one is in front of or around the outlet of the
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve discharge line, and (2) that
the water discharge will not cause any property damage, as the
water may be extremely hot. Use care when operating valve as
the valve may be hot.
Can cause serious injury or death.
Anode Rod Inspection
To check the pressure relief valve , lift the lever at the end of the
valve several times, see Figure 25. The valve should seat properly
and operate freely.
CAUTION
Property Damage Hazard
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 and drain the water heater, see Draining And
Flushing on page 32. Replace the Temperature-Pressure Relief
• Avoid water heater damage.
• Inspection and replacement of anode rod required.
Valve with a properly rated/sized new one, see TemperaturePressure Relief Valve on pages 12-13 for instructions on
replacement.
The anode rod is used to protect the tank from corrosion. Most
hot water tanks are equipped with an anode rod. The submerged
rod sacrifices itself to protect the tank. Instead of corroding tank,
31
water ions attack and eat away the anode rod. This does not affect
water’s taste or color. The rod must be maintained to keep tank in
operating condition.
5. Ensure the drain hose is secured before and during the
entire flushing procedure. Flushing is performed with system
water pressure applied to the water heater.
6. Open the water heater drain valve to flush the storage tank.
7. Flush the water heater storage tank to remove sediment and
allow the water to flow until it runs clean.
8. Close the water heater drain valve when flushing is completed.
9. Remove the drain hose.
10. Fill the water heater - see Filling The Water Heater in this manual.
11. Turn on the electrical supply to place the water heater back
in operation.
12. Allow the water heater to complete several heating cycles to
ensure it is operating properly.
Anode rod deterioration depends on water conductivity, not
necessarily water condition. A corroded or pitted anode rod
indicates high water conductivity and should be checked and/or
replaced more often than an anode rod that appears to be intact.
Replacement of a depleted anode rod can extend the life of your
water heater. Inspection should be conducted by a qualified
technician, and at a minimum should be checked annually after
the warranty period.
Artificially softened water is exceedingly corrosive because the
process substitutes sodium ions for magnesium and calcium ions.
The use of a water softener may decrease the life of the water
heater tank.
Recommended Procedure For Periodic
Removal Of Lime Deposits From Tank Type
Commercial Water Heaters
The anode rod should be inspected after a maximum of three
years and annually thereafter until the condition of the anode rod
dictates its replacement. Anode replacement is not covered by
warranty. NOTE: artificially softened water requires the anode rod
to be inspected annually.
The amount of calcium carbonate (lime) released from water is
in direct proportion to water temperature and usage, see chart.
The higher the water temperature or water usage, the more lime
deposits are dropped out of the water. This is the lime scale
which forms in pipes, heaters and on cooking utensils.
Lime accumulation not only reduces the life of equipment but also
reduces efficiency of the heater and increases fuel consumption.
The usage of water softening equipment greatly reduces the hardness
of the water. However, this equipment does not always remove all of
the hardness (lime). For this reason it is recommended that a regular
schedule for deliming be maintained.
The time between cleaning will vary from weeks to months
depending upon water conditions and usage.
The depth of lime buildup should be measured periodically. Heaters
equipped with cleanouts will have about 2" of lime buildup when
the level of lime has reached the bottom of the cleanout opening. A
schedule for deliming should then be set up,based on the amount
of time it would take for a 1" buildup of lime. It is recommended that
the water heater initially be inspected after 6 months.
Example 1:
Initial inspection after 6 months shows 1/2" of lime accumulation.
Therefore, the heater should be delimed once a year.
Example 2:
Initial inspection after 6 months shows 2" of lime accumulation.
Therefore, the heater should be delimed every 3 months.
Draining And Flushing
Burn harzard.
Hot water discharge.
Keep hands clear of drain

Deliming Solvents
UN•LIME is recommended for deliming. UN•LIME is a patented
food grade acid which is safe to handle and does not create the
harmful fumes which are associated with other products.
Explosion Hazard
UN•LIME may be obtained from your dealer, distributor or
water heater manufacturer. Order Part Number 9005416105,
1 gallon, packed 4 gallons per case or Part Number 9005417105,
5 gallon container.
Flammable hydrogen gases
may be present.
Keep all ignition sources away
from faucet when turning on
hot water.
NOTE: Un•Lime is not available for use in Canada.
Hydrochloric base acids are not recommended for use on glass
lined tanks.
Do not smoke or have open flame or sparks in vicinity of heater.
Do not mix UN•LIME with other chemicals. Do not allow contact
with magnesium, aluminum or galvanized metals.
Observe handling instructions on label of product being used.
Tank Cleanout Procedure
The following practices will ensure longer life and enable the
unit to operate at its designed efficiency:
Chemical Hazard
1. Once a month the heater should be flushed. Open the drain
valve and allow two gallons of water to drain from the heater.
Inlet water valve should remain open to maintain pressure
in tank.
• Product contains phosphoric acid.
• Keep out of reach of children.
• Use rubber or neoprene gloves.
2. A cleanout opening is provided for periodic cleaning of the
tank. Gas must be shut off and heater drained before opening
cleanout.
Contains phosphoric acid. In case of external contact, flush with cool
water. If irritation persists, get medical attention. If swallowed, give 1
or 2 glasses of water or milk and call physician.
To clean heater through cleanout opening, proceed as follows:
3. Drain heater.
Get immediate medical attention for eyes. Keep out of reach of children.
4. Remove outer cover plate from lower side of heater jacket.
NOTE: THE USE OF RUBBER OR NEOPRENE GLOVES IS
RECOMMENDED, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE ANY OPEN
SORES OR CUTS TO AVOID UNNECESSARY IRRITATION OR
DISCOMFORT.
5. Remove six (6) hex head screws securing tank cleanout plate
and remove plate.
6. Remove lime, scale, or sediment using care not to damage
the glass lining.
1. Turn off fuel and/or power supply to heater. Also, turn off power
to any electrical device or equipment, which is attached, or part
of the system.
7. Inspect cleanout plate gasket, if new gasket is required,
replace with part no. 9004099215.
2. Open hot water side of faucet closest to heater and allow water
to run until it is cool enough to handle safely.
8. Install cleanout plate. Be sure to draw plate up tight by
tightening screws securely.
3. Close cold water inlet valve to heater.
4. Connect hose to drain valve at bottom of heater and start draining
heater into suitable floor drain area.
9. Replace outer jacket cover plate.
In some water areas the sediment might not be removed by this
method and may result in the water heater making rumbling or
boiling noises. To dissolve and remove these more stubborn
mineral deposits, UN•LIME Professional Delimer should be used.
5. Remove pressure relief valve while heater is draining. NOTE:
Do not replace pressure relief valve until deliming is completed.
Pressure relief valve opening will also act as a vent in case of
possible contact between the delimer and the anode rod(s),
which may produce flammable hydrogen-air mixtures.
Deliming Using Flo-Jug Method
6. If pressure relief valve appears to be limed-up, place it in a clean
glass or plastic container adequate in size so that you can pour
enough UN•LIME® into container to cover the valve and allow
space for foaming. When foaming stops, run fresh cool water into
the container and rinse the pressure relief valve for a few minutes.
UN•LIME in the 5 gallon size is recommended for deliming of all
models. Contact your local dealer, distributor or, water heater
manufacturer.
Prepare the Water Heater
7. If heater does not drain completely after a reasonable length
of time, turn off the main water supply valve to stop water from
entering the tank due to a by-pass problem or defective cold
water inlet valve. Also, check for clogged drain valve opening.
Heater must be completely drained before introducing UN•LIME.
To delime the water heater using the Flo-Jug method, first
prepare the heater for deliming.
8. Remove the cleanout cover and place a clean plastic bucket
next to the cleanout opening.
Partially open the cold water inlet valve to allow time to
accomplish the following and then close the valve.
33
While the water is being run through the tank, insert a
stiff wire, copper tube flattened at one end or an opened
wire coat hanger through the cleanout opening and
scrape out any loose deposits of scale or sediment. This
is an economical way to avoid unnecessary usage of the
deliming solution.
Repeat the opening and closing of the cold water inlet valve
as necessary but be sure the heater is completely drained
when ready to introduce the UN•LIME.
Upon completion, reinstall the cleanout cover and use a new
cleanout cover gasket (part number 9004099215).
Remove the drain valve.
9. Install the long plastic male adapter insert fitting into the drain
valve opening of heater after applying Teflon tape or paste to
threads. Tighten firmly by hand and use wrench or adjustable
pliers to check for secure connection. Do not over tighten to
avoid damage to threads and fittings.
Figure 27.
Pilot Burner
Prepare the Up-N-Down Transfer Kit
At least once a year, check the pilot burner, Figure 29, and the
main burner, Figure 30, for proper operation. See Figure 28 for
the location of the Pilot Burner and the Main Burners. For access
to pilot, unfasten two screws to burner cover and remove. Locate
the burner with pilot and remove screw holding burner to manifold.
Unfasten pilot tubing from valve and slide out burner and pilot.
The next step is the preparation on the Up-N-Down Transfer Kit,
if you have not already done so:
1. With the 5 gallon Up-N-Down container in the vertical
position, unscrew the plastic vent cap in the handle and
pierce the plastic membrane over the vent boss under the
cap to allow the container to vent.
Servicing of the pilot burner includes keeping pilot free of lint,
cleaning the burner head, the primary air opening and the orifice
of the pilot burner.
Note: If your container does not have the vent cap and vent
boss, drill a 3/16” hole in the handle. When you have finished
deliming you will be able to plug this drilled vent with the
stainless steel screw that is supplied with the kit.
2. Remove the container’s cap and cut the plastic membrane
located in the 3/4” IPT opening in the cap. Take care to not
damage the threads.
3. Find the 3/4” male adapter, apply teflon tape to the threaded
end and screw it into the 3/4” IPT opening in the cap.
4. Put cap with male adapter back on the container and slide
3/4” hose over end of male adapter and fasten in place using
hose clamp provided.
FIGURE 28.
Delime using Flo-Jug Method
5. Slide the hose clamp over end of hose and slide hose over
the male adapter in the water heater drain opening and
secure in place using hose clamp.
6. Lift container to the “Pour” Position, see Figure 27, being
careful to keep the vent in the handle above the liquid level
and pour the UN•LIME into the heater.
7. Lower container, you may have to place the container on its
empty carton to prevent the UN•LIME from flowing back into
the container.
FIGURE 29.
8. Let UN•LIME remain in the heater for 5 minutes and then
lower the container to the “Drain” Position, see Figure 27.
Pilot burner flame is affected by:.
1. Low gas pressure.
• Adjust pilot flame by means of the pilot gas adjustment
located on the gas control valve. See Figure 31.
• The pilot flame should envelop sensing device with 5/8” (1.6cm)
flame, Figure30. Remove pilot adjustment cover screw, Figure
31. Turn inner adjustment screw clockwise to decrease, or
counterclockwise to increase pilot flame. Be sure to replace
cover screw on gas control valve after adjustment to prevent
possible gas leakage.
9. Deliming activity is indicated by foaming on the surface of the
UN•LIME. If there is deliming activity, repeat steps 6 thru 8.
Normally, lime removal will be completed within one hour.
Severe build-up of lime may take longer than an hour to complete
descaling.
Note: To check UN•LIME for continued use, place some scale
or white chalk in a glass with a small amount of UN•LIME. If
the material is vigorously dissolved by the UN•LIME, it can be
reused; if not, the UN•LIME should be replaced.
2. Clogged pilot burner orifice.
• Clean or replace orifice. A clogged orifice will restrict gas flow.
34
Gas Control Valve
Pilot sensing device must sense a flame before sparking will stop.
Loose wires or a draft may cause intermittent or abnormal
sparking. To eliminate this condition, first correct loose wiring
condition, and then, if necessary, increase pilot flame.
Figure 31 shows the two types of combination gas control valves
used on these heaters.
If gas control valve becomes defective, repairs should not be
attempted. A new valve should be installed in place of defective one.
Main Burner
The main burner, Figure 30, should display the following
characteristics:
• Cause rapid ignition and carry over of flame across entire burner.
• Give reasonably quiet operation during ignition, burning and extinction.
• Cause no excessive lifting of flame from burner ports.
If the preceding burner characteristics are not evident, check for
accumulation of lint or other foreign material that restricts or other
foreign material that restricts or blocks air openings to burner or heater.
To clean main burners:
1. Remove main burners from unit.
2. Check that burner venturi and ports are free of foreign matter.
LP VALVE
3. Clean burners with bristle brush and/or vacuum cleaner
DO NOT distort burner ports or pilot location.
4. Reinstall burners in unit. Make sure front and rear of burners
are installed correctly in burner support brackets.
Also check for good flow of combustion and ventilating air to the unit.

SERVICE
Electrical Servicing
The installer may be able to observe and correct certain problems
which may arise when the unit is put into operation. HOWEVER,
it is recommended that only a qualified service technician or
qualified agencys, using appropriate test equipment, be allowed
to service the heater.
As preliminary step, check wiring against diagram, check for
grounded, broken or loose wires. Check all wire ends to be sure
that they are making good contact.
LABEL ALL WIRES PRIOR TO DISCONNECTION WHEN SERVICING
CONTROLS. WIRING ERRORS CAN CAUSE IMPROPER AND
DANGEROUS OPERATION.
VERIFY PROPER OPERATION AFTER SERVICING.

FOR YOUR INFORMATION
c. A sulfate reducing bacteria which has accumulated
within the water heater (this harmless bacteria is
nontoxic to humans).
Start Up Conditions
SMOKE/ODOR
It is not uncommon to experience a small amount of smoke and
odor during the initial start-up. This is due to burning off of oil
from metal parts, and will disappear in a short while.
d. An excess of active hydrogen in the tank. This is caused
by the corrosion protective action of the anode rod.
Smelly water may be eliminated or reduced in some water
heater models by replacing the anode rod(s) with one of less
active material, and then chlorinating water heater tank and all
water lines.
STRANGE SOUNDS
Possible noises due to expansion and contraction of some metal
parts during periods of heat-up and cool-down do not necessarily
represent harmful or dangerous conditions.
Contact the local water heater supplier or service agency for
further information concerning an Anode Rod Replacement Kit
and this chlorination treatment.
Condensation causes sizzling and popping within the burner area
during heating and cooling periods and should be considered
normal. See “Condensation" section in this manual.
If smelly water persists after anode rod replacement and chlorination
treatment, we can only suggest that chlorination or aeration of the
water supply be considered to eliminate the water problem.
CONDENSATION
Whenever the water heater is filled with cold water, some
condensate will form while the burner is on. A water heater may
appear to be leaking when in fact the water is condensation.
This usually happens when:
Do not remove the anode rod leaving the tank unprotected. By
doing so, all warranty on the water heater tank is voided.
a. A new water heater is filled with cold water for the first time.
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, located
farthest away, be opened for several minutes 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.
“AIR” IN HOT WATER FAUCETS
b. Burning gas produces water vapor in water heaters,
particularly high efficiency models where flue temperatures
are lower.
c. Large amounts of hot water are used in a short time and the
refill water in the tank is very cold.
Moisture from the products of combustion condense on the cooler
tank surfaces and form drops of water which may fall onto the
burner or other hot surfaces to produce a “sizzling” or “frying” noise.

corrosion protection of the tank. Certain water conditions will
cause a reaction between this rod and the water. The most
common complaint associated with the anode rod is one of a
“rotten egg smell” in the hot water. The smell is a result of four
factors which must all be present for the odor to develop:
In the event of high limit switch operation, the water heater
cannot be restarted unless the water temperature is reduced
to approximately 120F (49C). The high limit reset button on the
front of the thermostat then needs to be depressed. See Figure 2
