PE MODEL WATER HEATERS

SUPPLEMENT TO INSTRUCTION MANUAL

P/N 238-44219-00

(Replaces pg. 2 in instruction manual.)

CONGRATULATIONS!

You have just purchased one of the finest water heaters on the market today!

This installation, operation and instruction manual will explain in detail the installation and maintenance of your new Programmable Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistant Gas Water Heater. We strongly recommend that you contact a plumbing professional for the installation of this water heater.

We require that you carefully read this manual, as well as the enclosed warranty, and refer to it when questions arise. If you have any specific questions concerning your warranty, please consult the plumbing professional from whom your water heater was purchased. For your records, we recommend that you write the model, serial number and installation date of your water heater in the maintenance section in the back of this manual.

Special Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistant System:

This water heater is equipped with a Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistant System. In the event of improper usage or storage of gasoline or other flammable materials in the location where the water heater is installed, the technology will resist ignition of the flammable vapors outside the confines of the water heater.

The Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistant System Features:

Advanced Flame Arrestor Design

Re-settableThermal Switch to prevent burner/pilot operation with restricted airflow

Flammable Vapor Sensor

Automatic Ignition Device

Sight Window to observe operation of pilot and burner

FOR YOUR SAFETY: Activation of the Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistant System occurs when flammable vapors are drawn into the water heater and are combusted. If flammable vapors are detected:

Do not try to light any appliance.

Do not touch any electrical switch; do not use any phone in your building.

Leave the premises and immediately call the fire department from a neighbor’s phone. Follow the fire department’s instructions.

Once the flammable vapor has been evacuated, contact your plumbing professional or the manufacturer for further instructions. Replacement of a Flammable Vapor Ignition Resistant System equipped water heater due to a flammable vapor shutdown is not covered under the terms of the limited warranty.

Minimum Clearances

(Replaces pg. 9 in instruction manual.)

WARNING

Failure to adhere to these installation and operating instructions may create a hazard to life and property and will nullify the warranty.

This installation must allow access to the front of the water heater and adequate clearance must be provided for servicing and operating this water heater. The water heater may be installed on either a combustible or non-combustiblefloor. If the water heater is to be installed directly on carpeting, it must be installed on top of a metal or wood panel (or equivalent) extending beyond the full width and depth of the water heater by at least 3 in.(7.6 cm) in any direction or, if the appliance is to be installed in an alcove or closet, the entire floor must be covered by the panel. If the rating plate or the label on the front of the heater specifies minimum clearances less than those listed in the below table, the water heater must be installed in accordance with the minimum clearances listed on the rating plate or the label on the front of the heater.

If it is necessary to install this water heater in an alcove, use the clearances listed in Figure 1.

Figure 1. Minimum Clearances for an Alcove Installation.

THERMOSTAT ADJUSTMENT

(Replaces pg. 19 in instruction manual.)

The thermostat dial is adjusted to its lowest setting when shipped from the factory. When adjusting the thermostat, it should be remembered that lower temperature settings are more energy efficient. To adjust the thermostat, turn the dial clockwise until the minimum acceptable temperature is set. It is suggested that the starting point setting not exceed the 120°F (49°C) or “HOT” setting on the thermostat.

Figure 2. Gas Valve.

The thermostat dial is set to its lowest temperature setting when shipped from the factory. Remember that lower temperature settings are more energy efficient. Adjust the temperature by turning the thermostat dial. It is suggested that the starting point setting not be greater than the “Hot” mark on the thermostat dial (approximately 120°F [48.9°C]). Rotate the thermostat dialcounter-clockwisetodecrease the temperature setting. Rotate the thermostat dial clockwisetoincrease the temperature setting. Adjust the dial until the minimum acceptable temperature is achieved.

DANGER

Hotter water increases the risk of scald injury. Scalding may occur within five (5) seconds at a temperature setting of 140°F (60°C). To protect against hot water injury, install an ASSE approved mixing valve in the water system. This valve will reduce point of discharge temperature by mixing cold and hot water in branch water lines. A licensed plumbing professional or local plumbing authority should be consulted.Note: This water heater is equipped with an energy cut out device to prevent overheating. Should overheating occur or the gas supply fails to shut off, turn off the manual gas control valve to the water heater, and call a qualified service technician.Note: Whenever the water heater is filled with cold water, condensate will form on the cool tank surface and drops of water will fall on the hot burner and combustion chamber surfaces producing a “sizzling” noise. Condensation is normal and does not indicate a leak. It will disappear when the tank becomes heated.

BURNER FLAME CHECK

(Replaces pg. 22 in instruction manual.)

Steel Burner: These models are equipped with self adjusting air mixture and do not have an adjustable air shutter (See Figure 3). At periodic intervals, a visual check of the main burner and pilot flames should be made to determine

if they are burning properly. The main burner flame should light smoothly from the pilot.

THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS ARE FOR INSTALLATION

OF:

GAS WATER HEATERS SUITABLE FOR WATER (POTABLE)

HEATING AND SPACE HEATING

(Replaces pg. 31 in instruction manual.)

All piping components connected to this water heater for space heating applications must be suitable for use with potable water. In Massachusetts, space heating piping length must not exceed 50 feet.

1.Toxic chemicals, such as those used for boiler treatment, must not be introduced into potable water used for space heating.

2.This water heater must not be connected to an existing heating system or

component(s) previously used with a non-potablewater heating appliance.

3.When the system requires water for space heating at temperatures higher than required for other means, such as an ASSE approved mixing valve must be installed to temper the water for those uses in order to reduce the scald hazard potential.

Please refer to Figure 6 for suggested piping arrangements.

Figure 6

9

(In addition to the instruction manual.)

Do not block or in any way restrict jacket air inlet slots located at the bottom front of the water heater.

Do not operate water heater with jumpered, altered, loosely tightened or absent controls and/or components.

Do not operate water heater with replacement controls and/or components which are not exact duplicates of original equipment.

Thoroughly inspect and replace, (as needed) burner inner door gasket and/or sight window gasket any time burner inner door is removed or disturbed.

Replace water heater if involved in flammable vapor incident.

This water heater is equipped with a flammable vapor sensor. If the sensor is exposed to flammable vapor, the water heater control will shut down the water heater and display a code of 7 flashes and then a 3 second pause.

If a 7 flash error code is present, check to see if flammable vapor is present in the area. If flammable vapor is present or suspected in the area, immediately leave the area and contact a service professional.

Do not try to light any appliance.

Do not touch any electric switch; do not use any phone in your building.

If you are certain there is no flammable vapor present, check the flammable vapor sensor to make certain

it has not become disconnected from the control. See the instruction manual for troubleshooting.

CAUTION

Protect the Setback Control and Accessory Module from solder and falling water during installation.
