IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING —
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire
or explosion, electric shock, and to prevent property damage, personal injury, or death.
Under certain conditions hydrogen gas may be produced in a water heater that has not been used
for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE.
If the hot water has not been used for two weeks or more, prevent the possibility of damage or injury
by turning on all hot water faucets and allowing them to run for several minutes. Do this before using any
electrical appliance which is connected to the hot water system. This simple procedure will allow any built-
up hydrogen gas to escape. Since the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame or appliance
during this process.
