Condensing heat exchanger unit maintenance;
▶ Shut off power. Disconnect power cord.
▶ Dismantle all inlet, outlet pipes and the condensate tube from the
condensing heat exchanger unit.
▶ Remove the condensing heat exchanger unit from the appliance by
pulling it towards you.
▶ Dismantle all parts for inspection and cleaning.

▶ Check the condensing heat exchanger for any obstruction.
▶ Flush the condensing heat exchanger unit with water.
▶ Check all gasket and o-rings for damage and replace if necessary.
It is important to inspect and properly replace the
gaskets and o-rings.
▶ Assemble the condensate unit and all other parts in reverse order of

levels is improper gas
The P1 minimum operating gas pressure is 3.5" WC for Natural Gas and
8" WC for Propane. Do not proceed in adjusting CO
or above these levels, but not to exceed 10.5" WC for Natural Gas and
13" WC for Propane.
A. Once Gas Pressure is adequate
▶ Press ON/OFF button to turn OFF the heater.
▶ Remove brass flat head screw on the exhaust collar as seen in Fig.67.
▶ Insert CO
analyzer probe into the measuring port. The tip of the
probe should be in the center of the flue pipe (approx 1.5" inserted).
Avoid air gaps between probe and measuring port as they can alter

B. Measuring CO
(Combustion cover Installed):
▶ Open all hot water taps to achieve a flow rate of at least 6 gallons per
minute. (1 tub and 2 sinks should be sufficient). If heater display
reverts back to P2, open more hot water fixtures to allow sufficient
flow. Press + until P1 reappears on the display.
▶ Record the CO
reading in P1 below. (Analyzer reading may take
several minutes to stabilize).
▶ Press the '+' button until P2 appears. Unit will ramp down to low fire
and the water flow should decrease.
▶ Record the CO
reading in P2 below.
Note: When making adjustments, make sure combustion cover is
