Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless
gas and causes no irritation, so its
presence is not easily detected.
Inhaling this gas in large amounts can
cause carbon monoxide poisoning and
even death.
Users are asked to install and use the
water heater according to this manual to
prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
The manufacturer or its authorized
distributors assume no responsibility for
any damage resulting from installation and
operations that do not comply with the
provisions of this manual.
It should be paid special attention to the
flame back combustion when the gas
pressure is insufficient. This causes the
carbon deposit on the burner to increase
and affect the product normal operation.
In such case, should the flame becomes
yellow, the amount of carbon monoxide
increases. Stop using the water heater
and contact the Whirlpool Service Center.
The water heater must be installed
