WARNING
This thermostat is a line voltage (120-277 volt) control.
Do not install this thermostat if you are not completely familiar
and competent with electrical wiring. If improperly handled,
there can be risk of 120-277 volt electric shock hazard which may
cause serious injury or death.
LOCATION:
Install a vertical switch box for mounting the T498, 1.5 m
[4 to 5 feet] above the floor on an inside wall where the
thermostat will be subjected to average room temperature.
The thermostat should be placed away from concealed
warm or cold water pipes, warm air ducts, light switches and
dimmers, refrigerators or drafts from hallways, fireplaces,
stairways or fans. When replacing an old line voltage electric
heating thermostat, remove the old thermostat carefully to
avoid damaging the insulation on the wiring.
THERMOMETER:
Optional coil bimetal lO°C - 30°C [50°F - 90°F].
MOUNTING MEANS:
Direct mounting on NEMA standard vertical 2 x 4 inch
switch box, or 4 x 4 inch box with mud ring adaptor (not
provided) using 6-32 slotted Robertson
APPROVAL:
Underwriters Laboratories listed File No. E47434
Guide No. XAPX
CSA File # LR1322
ACCESSORIES (not included):

Check the old insulation for cracks, nicks, or fraying and apply
approved electrical tape where necessary to achieve adequate
insulation or, replace the wires in an approved fashion.
1. Leave cover on the thermostat while making connections.
2. Push the leadwires into the outlet box and insert the
thermostat into the box for mounting by pushing against
the cover.
3. Remove the thermostat cover by grasping the top and bottom
and pulling outward.
4. Turn the dial so that the set point indicator is at the 12
o' clock position. This will prevent accidental damage to
the dial stop during mounting.
5. Using screwdriver, secure the thermostat to the box by
tightening the two mounting screws. Handle thermostat with
care, excessive pressure may damage the control knob or
