a TORX® T-25 key and maybe purchased at your local auto parts or hardware
General Information: To service the water bath, turn it on its side or top, remove bottom plate and insulation. To prevent
scratching of the enameled surface, place protective material (cardboard, cloth, or newspaper) under unit.
Leaks: Should a leak develop, drain bath and remove shelf. Turn bath upside down and remove bottom plate and insu-
lation. Leakage is only possible through the thermostat capillary fitting. Therefore, check locknut to see if it is tight, or if
0-ring needs to be replaced.
Thermostat Replacement: Replace thermostat if bath water does not heat and pilot light remains "off." Follow the steps
below to remove the thermostat.
CAUTION: Care must be exercised when handling the thermostat capil-
lary, since a sharp bend will crimp off the flow of the hydraulic operating
medium. To avoid twisting the capillary or damaging O-ring, hold the fit-
ting under the bath stationary, and firmly tighten locknut inside bath
chamber. Do not over-tighten, as O-ring could be squeezed out of posi-
tion, causing bath to leak. Under-tightening will also cause the bath to
