OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
FOR THE TOPF FORCED DRAUGHT INSTALLATION 
 
If the furnace does not draw properly, the forced draught installation incorporated in the chimney must be brought into service.

Here, care must be taken to first switch on the motor and only afterwards close the rotary damper in the chimney. The cold water supply from the tank should also be opened immediately.

At the end of the incineration, the rotary damper in the chimney must be opened first and then the motor and the water supply shut off.

In addition, care must be taken to ensure that there is always enough water in the tank
