IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT YOUR NEW BOILER
Your boiler must have air for combustion and ventilation. Do not enclose in an airtight room or enclosure.
To minimize the possibility of serious personal injury, fire, damage to your boiler, or improper operation,carefully follow these safety
rules:
1. Keep the area around your boiler free of combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable liquids and vapors. (Fig 8)
7
8
2. Do not cover the boiler, store trash or debris near it, or in any way block the flow of fresh air to the unit. (Fig 7)
3. A boiler installed in an insulated space must be kept free and clear of insulating material. Examine the boiler area when installing
or adding more insulation. Some materials may be combustible.
4. Combustion air must be clean and uncontaminated with chlorine or flourine (halogenated hydrocarbons). These compounds are
present in many products around the home such as water softener salts, laundry bleaches, detergents, adhesives, paints, varnishes,
paint strippers, waxes, and plastics.
Make sure the combustion air for your boiler does not contain any of these compounds. Keep containers tightly closed. During
remodeling or construction, be sure the air around your boiler is fresh and uncontaminated. If these compounds are burned in your
boiler, the sections and metal vent system may deteriorate.
5. Improper installation, adjustment, alteration, service, maintenance, or use can cause carbon monoxide poisoning, explosion, fire,
electric shock, or other occurrences which may injure you or damage your property. Consult a qualified installer, service agency, or
the gas supplier for information or assistance.
6. Do not use this appliance if any part has been under water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the appliance
and to replace any part of the control system and any gas control which has been under water.
STARTING YOUR BOILER
Your boiler is equipped with 1 of the 2 following types of gas control systems:
1. The manual ignition system has a continuously burning pilot flame. This pilot is manually ignited with a match and continues to
burn.
2. The automatic intermittent system does not have a continuously burning pilot flame. This pilot is automatically lit by an electric
sparking device each time the thermostat “calls for heat.”
Follow these important safeguards:
1. Never attempt to manually light the pilot on a boiler that has an intermittent ignition system with a match or other source of flame.
2. Read and follow the lighting instructions on the rating plate (located on the right side of the boiler), especially the item that reads
as follows:
Wait 5 minutes to clear out any gas. Then smell for gas, including near the floor, If you smell gas, STOP! Follow “B” in the safety
information located on the boiler access door. If you don’t smell gas, go to the next step.
3. If a suspected malfunction occurs with your gas control system, such as the pilot does not light when it should, refer to the shutdown
procedures in the next section to turn off your system, then call your dealer as soon as possible.
! WARNING: Should overheating occur, or the gas valve fail to shut off the gas supply, turn off the manual gas valve
to the boiler BEFORE turning off the electrical supply.
MANUAL PILOT IGNITION
1. Set room thermostat to the lowest temperature setting. (Fig 9)

NOTE: If the pilot flame does not remain lit, repeat steps 1 through 5; however, hold the push button down for a longer period of time
(at least 90 sec). If the pilot flame does not remain lit after this second attempt, the thermocouple should be checked for a possible
malfunction. Call your dealer for service.
7. After a pilot flame has been established, turn the control dial on the gas valve to the ON position. (Fig 15)
8. Replace burner access door.

11. Boiler main burners should light shortly after your room thermostat is set to “call for heat.” Now set the temperature selector on
your room thermostat to your personal comfort setting.
If the main burners fail to light, shut down your boiler and call your dealer for service.
NOTE: To conserve energy when the heating season has ended, you should shut down your manually ignited pilot. Follow the procedures
in “Shutting Down Your Boiler” in the next section.

8. The pilot ignition system now begins sparking and the pilot flame lights. After the few seconds that it takes for the system to
automatically verify that a pilot flame has been established, the gas valve opens, permitting gas to flow to the main burners, and the
pilot lights the burner. Set the temperature selector on your room thermostat to your personal comfort setting.
If the pilot fails to light, or the main burners fail to light, shut down your boiler and call your dealer for service.
SHUTTING DOWN YOUR BOILER
Once the heating season has ended, or should you ever suspect a malfunction in your boiler, you will want to turn the boiler off. The
following procedures must be followed:

PERFORMING ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
With only routine maintenance and care, you can rely on your new boiler to operate economically and reliably for many years. Some
of the maintenance you may want to do yourself. However, before performing any service on your boiler, please carefully consider the
following:
1. Turn off electrical power supply to your boiler before removing access door to service or perform maintenance.
2. Although special care has been taken to reduce sharp edges to a minimum, be extremely careful when handling parts or reaching
into boiler.
COMBUSTION AREA AND VENT SYSTEM
Visually inspect the combustion area and vent system before each heating season. When dirt, soot, scale, or rust builds up, your boiler
can lose efficiency and perform improperly. Accumulations on the main burners can result in the burners firing out of normal sequence.
This delayed ignition will create an alarmingly loud sound.
! CAUTION: If your boiler makes an especially loud noise when the main burners light, shut down your boiler and call
your dealer.
To inspect the combustion area and vent system, you will need a flashlight. Then, referring to Fig. 30, 31, 32, 33, and 34, proceed as follows:
1. Turn the electrical supply to the boiler to OFF, and remove burner access door.

4. Turn the electrical supply to the boiler to ON.
5. Start your boiler and observe its operation. Watch the burner flames to see if they are bright blue.
6. Replace burner access door.
If you observe a suspected malfunction, or that the burner flames are not bright blue, call your dealer.
A CHECKUP CHECKLIST
Your boiler represents an important investment in your family’s comfort and your home’s value. To keep it in tip-top shape and prevent
future problems, have a trained service specialist give your boiler a professional checkup at least once each year. The following checklist
can be used as a guideline to proper service:
35
• Inspect all flue product passages including the burners, pilot, passages between the sections, drafthood, vent pipe, and vent damper
(if installed).
• Inspect all combustion and ventilation air passages and openings.
• Inspect electrical wiring, connections, and components for loose connections.
• Check gas pipes leading to and inside your boiler for leaks.
• Readjust the air/gas mixture if the burner flames are not bright blue.
• Perform an operational checkout to determine whether your boiler is working properly, and if it requires adjustments.
• Check all safety controls such as safety pilot, limit switch, pressure relief valve, etc. for proper operation.
If your boiler is not operating or not performing properly, you may save the expense of a service call by checking a few things yourself
before calling for service.
BEFORE YOU REQUEST A SERVICE CALL
IF BOILER FAILS TO OPERATE:
Follow this checklist step by step, advancing to the next one only if boiler fails to operate.
• Check thermostat for proper temperature setting.
• Is electrical power supply to boiler on?
• Is manual shut-off valve in gas supply pipe in open position? (Follow start-up procedures if you open gas line.)
NOTE: Turn the electrical power to OFF and remove access doors before continuing with the checklist.
9
• If you have a manually ignited continuously burning pilot, be sure that it is burning. If not, see the start-up procedures in this manual.
• Control dial on gas valve in ON position? (Follow start-up procedures if you must reset dial to ON.)
If your boiler still fails to operate, call your service representative.
