i
, Before
removing
any
access
panels
or servicing
the water
heater, make sure the electrical
supply
to the water
heater
is
turned "OFF".
', Failure to do tHs could result in
death,
serious
bodily
injury,
or
property damage.
2. Take
off the upper
and/or
lower
access
panel,

Temperature-Pressure
Relief
Valve Operation
The
temperature-pressure
relief
valve
must
be manually
operated
at least once a year.
• Burn hazard
• Hotwater discharge.
• Keep clear of reHief valve
The
temperature-pressure
relief
valve
must
be manually
operated
at least once a year. Caution
should
be taken to ensure
that
(1)
no one
is in front
of or around
the
outlet
of the
temperature-pressure
relief
valve
discharge
line,
and (2) the
water
manually
discharged
will not cause any property
damage
or bodily
injury. The water
may be extremely
hot.

3. The slotted
adjustment
(using
a screwdriver)
can be turned
clockwise
( f_

the temperature
setting
or
counter
clockwise
( _'_ ) to decrease
the temperature

Anode
Rod inspection
Property
Damage
Hazard
, Avoid water heater damage.
• Inspection
and replacement
of anode as needed.
The anode
rod is used to protect
the tank from corrosion.
Most
hot
water
tanks
are
equipped
with
an
anode
rod.
The
submerged
rod sacrifices
itself
to protect
the tank.
Instead
of
corroding
the tank, water
ions attack
and eat away
the anode
rod. This
does
not affect
the water's
taste
or color.
The
rod
must
be maintained
to keep the tank
in operating
condition.
Anode
deterioration
depends
on the water
conductivity,
not
necessarily
water
condition.
A corroded
or pitted
anode
rod
indicates
high water
conductivity
and should
be checked
and/
or replaced
more
often
than
an anode
rod that appears
to be
intact.
Replacement
of a depleted
anode
rod can extend
the
life of your
water
heaten
Inspection
should
be conducted
by
calling
Sears
Service
Center.
At
a minimum
the anode(s)
should
be checked
annually
after the warranty
period.
DISCHARGE PiPE
FIGURE 28.
If after manually
operating
the valve,
it fails to completely
reset
and continues
to release
water,
immediately
close
the cold
water
inlet to the water
heater,
follow the draining
instructions,
and replace
the temperature-pressure
relief
valve
with
a new
one,
Failure
to install and maintain
a new properly
listed temperature°
pressure
relief
valve
will
release
the manufacturer
from
any
claim
which
might
result
from
excessive
temperature
or
pressure.
If the temperature-pressure
relief valve on the appliance
weeps
or discharges
periodically,
this
may
be due
to thermal
expansion.
Your water
heater may have a check valve
installed
in the water
line or a water
meter with
a check
valve.
Consult
your local Sears
Service
Center
for further
information.
Do not
plug the temperature-pressure
relief valve.
