To remount the heating

To remount the heating element, the tightening torque of the bolts (A fig. 6) should be between 7 and 10 N/m. You must respect the “criss-cross” type of tightening. Once the aforementioned operations are complete, make sure you fill the appliance with water before powering it. Resetting the bipolar safety In the event of an abnormal overheating of the water, a thermal safety switch in compliance with CEI-EN norms cuts off the electrical circuit on both the power supply phases of the heating element. To reset the operation of the appliance, proceed as follows: - leave it to cool; - set the knob (F fig. 6) to the maximum temperature position; - remove the cover C by unscrewing screws D (fig. 4); - disconnect the thermostat (T fig. 6) from the electricity mains; - using a cross-head screwdriver, press on point A fig. 9 until you hear it click. Remount everything in the reverse order, paying particular attention to repositioning the components correctly. Once the aforementioned operations are complete, make sure you fill the appliance with water before powering it. USER INSTRUCTIONS GB ! WARNING! Follow the general warnings and the safety norms listed at the beginning of the text and keep to all the instructions given under all circumstances. Advice for user - Avoid positioning any objects and/or appliances that could be damaged by water leaks beneath the water heater. - Should you not use any water for an extended period of time, you should: disconnect the appliance from the electrical supply by switching the external switch to “OFF”; turn off the plumbing circuit taps. - Hot water at above 50°C flowing out of the taps at the point of use could cause serious scalds or even death from burns. Children, the disabled and the elderly are more exposed to the risk of burns. - It is strictly forbidden for the user to perform any routine or extraordinary maintenance. - Before calling the after-sales service centre for assistance in the event of a suspected malfunction, check first whether this is due to other causes, such as for example a temporary power failure or water shortage. ! ! ! See warning nos. 1 - 2 - 3 See warning no. 4 – Contact a competent person for the replacement of the power supply cable. See warning nos. 5 - 6 - 8 ! ! ! See warning no. 21 - To clean the outer parts of the appliance, use a damp cloth soaked in soapy water. See warning no. 21 - To clean the outer parts of the appliance, use a damp cloth soaked in soapy water. See warning nos. 22 - 23 Operation To turn the water heater on, insert the plug into the wall socket or switch on the bipolar switch. The pilot lamp (A fig. 4) only stays on during the heating cycle; during this time, the expanding water could cause some water to trickle from the tap: this is completely normal and does not mean the tap is faulty. Do not screw the taps too tightly to prevent damaging their seals. The thermostat will automatically disable the heating element as soon as the selected water temperature is reached. During the final stage of heating, it is normal for a few cycles of thermostat starting and stopping to take place. During normal operation, the electric heating element may make a little noise inside the appliance, which is due to the heat exchange; the plumbing connections may also become hot to the touch. Adjusting the operating temperature The temperature of the water can be selected on the knob (F fig. 6) and can be adjusted from 40 to 80°C approximately. We recommend you set the temperature of the water heater to 60°C to: - reduce the formation of limescale; - reduce heat dispersion; - avoid the risk of bacteria proliferation. 29

USEFUL INFORMATION If the water comes out cold Have the following checked: - that the thermostat terminals are powered; - the thermostat thermal safety; - the heating parts of the heating element. If the water comes out boiling hot (steam in the taps) Disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply and have the following checked: - the setting and correct operation of the thermostat; - the amount of limescale build-up in the tank and on the components. Insufficient hot water supply Have the following checked: - the pressure of the water mains; - he condition of the hot water inlet pipe; - the electrical components. DO NOT TRY TO REPAIR THE APPLIANCE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES: ALWAYS CONTACT PROFESSIONAL STAFF. Ariston Thermo UK Ltd.
