1 30RA010-055. AquaSnap Air-Cooled Chillers with ComfortLink Controls 50/60 Hz Controls, start -Up, Operation, Service, and Troubleshooting SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS. Installing, starting up, and servicing this equipment can be hazardous due to system pressures, electrical components, and This unit uses a microprocessor-based electronic control equipment location (roof, elevated structures, mechanical system. Do not use jumpers or other tools to short out rooms, etc.). Only trained, qualified installers and service components, or to bypass or otherwise depart from recom- mechanics should install, start up, and service this equipment. mended procedures. Any short-to-ground of the control When working on this equipment, observe precautions in board or accompanying wiring may destroy the electronic the literature, and on tags, stickers, and labels attached to the modules or electrical components.
2 Equipment, and any other safety precautions that apply. Follow all safety codes. Wear safety glasses and work gloves. Use care in handling, rigging, and setting this equipment, and in handling all electrical components. To prevent potential damage to heat exchanger, always run fluid through heat exchanger when adding or removing refrigerant charge. Use appropriate brine solutions in cooler Electrical shock can cause personal injury and death. Shut fluid loop to prevent the freezing of brazed plate heat off all power to this equipment during installation and exchanger, optional hydronic section and/or interconnecting service. There may be more than one disconnect switch. piping when the equipment is exposed to temperatures Tag all disconnect locations to alert others not to restore below 32 F (0 C).

Do NOT remove power from this chiller during winter shutdown periods without taking precaution to remove all water from heat exchanger and optional hydronic system. Failure to properly protect DO NOT VENT refrigerant relief valves within a building. the system from freezing may constitute abuse and may Outlet from relief valves must be vented outdoors in void warranty. accordance with the latest edition of ANSI/ASHRAE. (American National Standards Institute/American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers). 15 (Safety Code for Mechanical Refrigeration). The accumulation of refrigerant in an enclosed space can displace oxygen and cause asphyxiation.
4 Provide adequate Compressors and optional hydronic system pumps require ventilation in enclosed or low overhead areas. Inhalation of specific rotation. Test condenser fan(s) first to ensure high concentrations of vapor is harmful and may cause proper phasing. Swap any two incoming power leads to heart irregularities, unconsciousness or death. Misuse can correct condenser fan rotation before starting any other be fatal. Vapor is heavier than air and reduces the amount motors. of oxygen available for breathing. Product causes eye and skin irritation. Decomposition products are hazardous. Refrigerant charge must be removed slowly to prevent loss DO NOT attempt to unbraze factory joints when servicing of compressor oil that could result in compressor failure. this equipment.
5 Compressor oil is flammable and there is no way to detect how much oil may be in any of the refrigerant lines. Cut lines with a tubing cutter as required when performing service. Use a pan to catch any oil that may come out of the lines and as a gage for how much oil to add to system. DO NOT re-use compressor oil. Manufacturer reserves the right to discontinue, or change at any time, specifications or designs without notice and without incurring obligations.
