▶ Operate all other gas appliances (except heater) on same gas piping
system at maximum output.
▶ Turn on high volume of hot water flow (at least 6 gpm) and burner will
light. If heater display reverts to P2, open more hot water fixtures to
allow sufficient flow. Press
▶ Record lowest operating gas pressure reading in table 45.
Gas pressures lower than 3.5" W.C. for Natural Gas or 8" W.C. for LPG
will result in insufficient degree rise to the hot water being used, reduced
hot water volume, possible error code faults and must be corrected. See
Gas Connections, chapter 4.8, page 29.
P1 fan speed:
Factory default: NG: 51, LP: 52
Lowering P1 fan speed reduces the maximum BTU input.
As a temporary measure if the gas pressure in P1 is below specification,
lower P1 fan speed incrementally until minimum inlet gas pressure
reaches specified range (table 44). After upgrading gas line, reset
appliance to P1 factory default setting (NG: 51, LP: 52) or setting from
Section 4.3.8.
