Ramping Profile Dip Switch Settings Incorrect in Installation-Operating Manuals on AMV8, ACV9 and AMV9 Gas Furnaces

Type: Service Alert
Equipment: Furnace
Recall or Alert Date: 02-18-2005
Serial Number: GF-176
Brands Affected: Amana

Description of Problem:

The ramping profile dip switch settings in the Installation and Operating Manual for the AMV8* (IO-247) and ACV9*/AMV9* (IO-253B) are listed incorrectly. The instructions incorrectly displayed the dip switch just the opposite of what it was suppose to be (i.e. OFF switch shown down when it should have been shown up) and some were labeled “OFF” when they should have said, “ON”. The charts below show the correct ramping profiles on the left side and the wrong one used on the right side. The new Installation and Operating Manual for the AMV8* (IO-247A)
and ACV9*/AMV9* (IO-253C) should be used.
