DANGER

DO NOT store or use gasoline or other flammable, combustible, or corrosive vapors and/or liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

This water heater is for OUTDOOR INSTALLATION ONLY. DO NOT INSTALL INDOORS.

This water heater is equipped with an adjustable thermostat to control water temperature. Hot water temperatures required for automatic dishwasher and laundry use can cause scald burns resulting in serious personal injury and/or death. The temperature at which injury occurs varies with the person’s age and the time of exposure. The slower response time of disabled persons increases the hazards to them. NEVER allow small children to use a hot water tap, or to draw their own bath water.NEVER leave a child or disabled person unattended in a bathtub or shower.

WARNING

Improper installation, adjustments, alteration, service or maintenance can cause property damage, personal injury or loss of life. Failure to follow all instructions in the proper order can cause personal injury or death. Read and understand all instructions, including all those provided with the appliance before installing, starting-up,operating, maintaining or servicing this appliance. Keep this manual and literature in legible condition with this water heater for reference by owner and service technician.

This water heater requires regular maintenance and service to operate safely. Follow the instructions contained in this manual.

Installation, maintenance, and service must be performed only by a qualified, skilled and knowledgeable installer or service provider.

Installation is not complete unless a pressure relief valve is installed into the proper location in the outlet piping of this water heater.

It is the responsibility of the installing contractor to see that all controls are correctly installed and are properly operating when the installation is complete.

DO NOT operate this water heater without first being certain it is filled with water.

WARNING

DO NOT tamper with or alter the water heater and/or controls.

DO NOT operate water heater with jumpered or absent controls or safety devices.

DO NOT operate water heater if any external part has been under water. Immediately call a qualified service agency to inspect the appliance and to replace any part of the control system including gas controls, which has been under water.

DO NOT attempt to use this water heater with any gas other than the type listed on the rating plate. Do not attempt to convert this water heater for use with a gas other than the type for which it is equipped. Failure to use the proper gas can create an unsafe condition resulting in property damage, bodily injury, or death. Consult your local gas supplier or gas company if there are any questions.

DO NOT operate this water heater if the input rate exceeds the rate shown on the water heater rating plate.

This water heater contains very hot water under high pressure. Do not unscrew any pipe fittings nor attempt to disconnect any components of this water heater without positively assuring the water is cool and is not under pressure. Always wear protective clothing and equipment when installing, starting up or servicing this water heater to prevent scald injuries. Do not rely on the temperature gauges to determine the temperature. Do not touch any components unless they are cool.

Water heater materials of construction, products of combustion and the fuel contain carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, aldehydes and/or other toxic or harmful substances which can cause death or serious injury and which are known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. Always use proper safety clothing, respirators and equipment when servicing or working nearby this water heater.

WARNING

Liquefied petroleum gases/propane gas is heavier than air and will remain at floor level if there is a leak. Basements, crawl spaces, closets and areas below ground level will serve as pockets for accumulation of leaking gas. Before lighting, smell all around the appliance area for gas. Be sure to smell next to the floor.

IF YOU SMELL GAS:

DO NOT try to light any appliance.

DO NOT touch any electric switch; do not use any telephone in your building.

Immediately call your gas supplier from a telephone in another building. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.

If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.

DO NOT OPERATE THE APPLIANCE UNTIL THE LEAKAGE IS CORRECTED!
