Checking the Thermal Cut Out:
1.
Locate the thermal cut out switch (see Fig. 3).
Reset button on Thermal Cut Out
2.
Press the button located in the center of the cut out
switch. If you feel it click (similar to a ball point pen), then
the thermal cut out was tripped.
NOTICE:
The thermal cut out trips because of another underlying
problem, such as scale, low fl ow with warm inlet water,
high temperature setting or preheated water. It is
important to fi nd the issue before returning the heater to
service.

Check the fl ow switch for continuity.
1.
With no water fl owing through the unit, check continuity
between the brown wire and the yellow wire on the circuit
board using 100 ohms scale (see Fig. 5). A stuck or dama-
ged fl ow switch will show a closed circuit without water
fl ow causing the TCO to trip.
2.
Now with water fl owing through the unit, check continuity
between the brown wire and the yellow wire on the circuit
board using 100 ohms scale (see Fig. 5).
