The immersion heater is supplied with a RTS/RTS PLUS thermostat, approximately factory set to 80°C, with adjustable temperature.
To maintain safety and operation, any replacement thermostat must be of the same type.
This device must be earthed
If the heater is switched on when the water level is not fully covering the heating element there may be serious damage incurred to the heater, property or persons.
The appliance is not to be used by children or persons with reduced capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
The immersion must not be switched on without water within the calorifier Due to the possibility of buring out the elements and fire.
Do not remove this cover whilst connected to 220-240 volt hook up or generator that is switched on.
The thermostat has a safety resettable cut out mechanism which prevents excessive temperatures.
The unit is able to disconnect both supply conductors (live and neutral) by a single initiating action. In case the normal sensing device fails the over temperature safety device will act to limit the water over temperature.
To reset the thermostat after an intervention of the safety device:
NB: This cut out is a safety device, if this is found to be operating frequently then we recommend to consult a qualified electrician to investigate the nature of the problem as the thermostat may need to be replaced. It may be helpful to lower the thermostat setting to avoid unnecessary cut offs.
