VERNON MANUFACTURING RECOMMENDS THAT A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN PERFORM THIS WORK.  ALL MACHINES SHOULD BE INSTALLED USING A DEDICATED CIRCUIT AND SURGE PROTECTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH ALL FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL BUILDING CODES.  CHANGES IN WIRING OR OBVIOUS SHORTING WILL VOID WARRANTY.


Since each installation is different, mounting hardware is not furnished and the following are general instructions only.  Your application will dictate the parameters and hardware needed.  We recommend using anchors for cement; bolts, washers and nuts for metal or wood walls.  Please follow local codes for any electrical or plumbing installations.  An awning, or similar cover over the unit, will help keep out moisture.

Use the control box as a guide for the next two steps:


Mark and drill 4 holes for mounting the control box to an inside wall.  Leveling is essential.


Drill holes through the wall for the coin tubes, reject wire and outside indicator box.  The holes for the coin tubes should be drilled at a 20-degree angle (up for the coin insert tube and down for the coin return tube).  The hole for the insert tube should start approximately ½” up from the top of the box in line with the inlet slot in the top of the box.  The hole for the return tube can be marked using the exit slot inside the box.  Make sure there is no binding of the tubes or reject wire.  The ½” pipe on the outside indicator box pushes through the wall from the outside with the junction box on the inside.  The locknut on the end of the pipe holds the assembly in position.


Connect the yellow, white, blue and purple wires from the control box to the outside indicator box.


Install the valve in your water line either horizontal or vertical.  It is marked for direction of flow.  Protect it from freezing.  A gate valve (not furnished) mounted ahead of the water valve aids in cleaning and repair.  Install the piping, valves, drains, back flow preventers and other devices in accordance with local codes.  PLEASE NOTE:  The open hole under the diaphragm must be open to air—DO NOT PLUG THIS HOLE.


Key Switch Override:  If so equipped, city personnel can use this without having to use money.  Simply insert the key and turn.  The switch is labeled “NORM - O/R”.


Automatic Drain:  If so equipped, tie both solenoids in parallel and follow the valve installation instructions shown above.  Secure the green ground wires from the solenoid(s) under a bolt on the valve.


CONNECT ALL WIRES COLOR TO COLOR
