The water temperature can be adjusted from 80°F to 150°F. Use the temperature
control knob to change to the
desired temperature.
Operating
Mode Descriptions
1.
Smart Mode - The controller operates the water heater to maintain the customer's selected temperature.
2.
Energy Smart Mode - The controller adjusts the water temperature to lowest temperature required to meet the
household demands. This mode minimizes operating costs. The controller will not adjust temperature higher than
customer's selected set point or lower than 115°E
3.
Low Temperature
Mode - The controller limits the water temperature to 120°F or at the temperature selected
whichever is lower. See page 9 for more information on scalds.
4.
Vacation/Cabin
Mode - The controller adjusts the water temperature to approximately 50°F. This mode is
recommended when the water heater is not in use for a long period of time. This effectively turns the water heater
off and prevents the water from freezing.

before normal operations begin. This takes approximately 10 minutes.
