may have

the water
heater to be much
heavier
than normal
and this residue,
if spilled out, could cause staining.
Facts to Consider
About
the Location
You should
carefully
choose
an indoor
location
for the new
water
heater,
because
the
placement
is a very
important
consideration
for the safety
of the occupants
in the building
and for the most economical
use of the appliance.
This
water
heater
is not intended
for outdoor
installation.
Whether
replacing
an old water
heater
or putting
the water
heater
in a new location,
the following
critical
points
must
be
observed.
The location
selected
should
be indoors
as close to and as
centralized
with the water
piping
system
as possible.
This
water
heater,
as well
as all water
heaters,
will eventually
leak.
Do not install
without
adequate
drainage
provisions
so water
flow will not cause
damage.

WATER
HEATERS
EVENTUALLY
LEAK: Installation
of the water
heater
must be accomplished
in such a manner
that if the tank
or any connections
should
leak, the flow of water wil! not cause
damage
to the structure.
When
such
locations
cannot
be
avoided,
a suitable
drain
pan should
be installed
under
the
water heater. Drain pans are available
at your local Sears stores.
Such
drain
pans
must
be piped
to an adequate
drain.
Water
heater
life depends
upon
water
quality,
water
pressure
and the environment
in which
the water
heater
is installed.
Water
heaters
are sometimes
installed
in locations
where
leakage
may result in property
damage,
even with the use of a
drain
pan piped
to a drain.
However,
unanticipated
damage
can be reduced
or prevented
by a leak detector
or water
shut-
off device
used
in conjunction
with
a piped
drain
pan.
These
devices
are available
from your
local
Sears
store,
and detect
and react to leakage
in various
ways:
* Sensors
mounted
in the drain
pan that trigger
an alarm
or
turn off the incoming
water
to the water
heater
when
leakage
is detected.
* Sensors
mounted
in the drain pan that turn offthe
water supply
to the entire
home
when water
is detected
in the drain
pan.
* Water supply
shut-off
devices
that activate
based
on the water
pressure
differential
between
the cold water
and
hot water
pipes
connected
to the water
heater.
Installations
in Residentiam Garages
" Water
heater
must
be
located
in
a
protective
area
iNSTALLATiON
IN RESIDENTIAL
GARAGES:
The water heater
must be located
and/or
protected
so it is not subject
to physical
damage
by a moving
vehicle.
*
The
location
selection
must
provide
adequate
clearances
for servicing
and proper
operation
of the water
heater.
_nsu_ation B_ankets
Insulation
blankets
are
available
to the general
public
for
external
use on electric
water
heaters
but are not necessary
with
this product.
The
purpose
of an insulation
blanket
is to
reduce
the standby
heat
loss
encountered
with
storage
tank
heaters.
Your
water
heater
meets
or exceeds
the National
Appliance
Energy
Conversation
Act standards
with
respect
to
insulation
and standby
loss requirements,
making
an insulation
blanket
unnecessary.
Should
you choose
to apply an insulation
blanket
to this heater,
you should
follow
these
instructions
below.
Failure
to follow
these
instructions
can result
in fire, serious
personal
injury, or
death.
Do not cover
the temperature
and pressure
relief
(T & P)
valve
with an insulation
blanket.
*
Do not cover
the instruction
manual.
Keep it on the side of
the water
heater
or nearby
for future
reference.
*
Do obtain
new warning
and instruction
labels
from
Sears
for placement
on the blanket
directly
over the existing
labels.
Facts to Consider
About
the
Convertible
Lower E_ement
The
Upper

(if a double
element
model)
is a
conventional
3800 watt element
which only operates
at its rated
wattage
on 240 volts.
(See rating
plate
on the water
heater).

at 3800 watts
to 5500 watts
on a 240 volt system.
