5. Check supply pressure.

Low temperature rise

1. Heater is condensing. Flue product moisture will condense at the start-up until the heater water temperature reaches the normal operating conditions.
2. Faulty or broken Thermal Flow Regulator.
3. Correct the plumbing.
4. TRV failure.

Not enough heat - heater is slow to heat up, heater not maintaining set temperature

1. Gas meter too small.
2. Gas line from meter to heater too small.
3. Correct gas supply pressure to 4.0" W.C.
4. Replace with heater of higher input.
5. Check blower inlet grill for obstruction.

Pump not operating

1. Check circuit breakers and power source.
2. Replace the pump.
3. Recheck wiring.

Unstable combustion - heater turns off and on, heater ignites slowly, flame lifts and goes out, short yellow streaked flame

1. Make sure the gas supply matches the gas type
indicated on the rating plate.
2. Correct gas supply pressure to 4.0" W.C.
3. Increase offset gas pressure. Rotate adjustment screw clockwise.
4. Correct gas supply pressure to 4.0" W.C
5. Decrease offset gas pressure. Rotate adjustment screw counter-clockwise.
