properly install, operate or maintain the unit in
accordance with the printed instructions provided;
• 2. to damage or abuse, accident, neglect or freezing
and other acts of nature;
• 3. to damage resulting from operation with either the
flame sensor rod or overheat sensor removed;
• 4. to failure of the heat exchanger resulting from the

atmosphere or at water temperatures exceeding the
maximum rating, or if the water heater is not supplied
with potable water;
• 5. to defects or damage cause by any attachment
or modification, including any energy-saving device.

Any claim for warranty parts should be made to your
local dealer, distributor or to CEC. If CEC, please
contact the Technical Support Department:

In most cases, the dealer or distributor will be able to
promptly honor your claim and subsequently notify
CEC. However, all replacements are made subject to
validation by CEC of in-warranty coverage. The
damaged or defective item must be made available in
exchange for the replacement.
No one is authorized to make any other warranties on
behalf of CEC. It is expressly understood that the
replacement warranty of CEC shall be in lieu of any and
all other warranties, express or implied, including
warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular
use or purpose, and further that CEC shall not be liable
for any loss or damage directly or indirectly arising from
the use of the hot water heater, or for any consequential
damages arising from such use (including damages
from water leakage). CEC's sole liability with respect to
any defect shall be for the replacement of the defective
part(s). Some states do not allow such limitations and
exclusions, so the above may not apply to you.
This warranty gives specific legal rights. You may also
have other rights which vary from state to state.
