GENERAL SAFETY INFORMATION
Failure to comply with the general
safety information may result in extensive
property damage, severe personal injury, or
death.
Make certain that the power source conforms to the
electrical requirements of the heater.
Do not depend upon a thermostat
or other switch as sole means of disconnecting
power when installing or servicing heater. Always
disconnect power at main circuit breaker as
described above. Failure to do so could result in
fatal electric shock.
This product must be installed by
a licensed plumber or gas fitter when installed
within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Installation must be made in accordance with
local codes, or in absence of local codes, with
the latest edition of ANSI Standard Z223.1 (N.F.P.A.
No. 54) National Fuel Gas Code. All of the ANSI
and NFPA Standards referred to in these installation
instructions are those that were applicable at the
time the design of this appliance was certified.The
ANSI Standards are available from CSA Information
Services 1-800-463-6727. The NFPA Standards are
available from the National Fire Protection Association,
Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269.
Special attention must be given to any grounding
information pertaining to this heater. To prevent the risk
of electrocution, the heater must be securely and
adequately grounded. This should be accomplished by
connecting a ground conductor between the service panel
and the heater. To ensure a proper ground, the grounding
means must be tested by a qualified electrician.
Do not insert fingers or foreign objects into heater or
its air moving device. Do not block or tamper with the
heater in any manner while in operation, or just after it
has been turned off, as some parts maybe hot enough
to cause injury.
If installed in Canada, the installation must conform with
local building codes, or in the absence of local building
codes, with CSA-B149.1 “Installation Codes for Natural
Gas Burning Appliances and Equipment” or CSA-B149.2
“Installation Codes for Propane Gas Burning Appliances
and Equipment.” These unit heaters have been designed
and certified to comply with CSA 2.6.
This heater is intended for general heating applications
ONLY. It must NOT be used in potentially dangerous
locations such as flammable, explosive, chemical-laden,
or wet atmospheres.
Do not alter the unit heater in
any way or damage to the unit and/or severe
personal injury or death may occur!
Do not attach ductwork to this product or use it as a
makeup air heater. Such usage voids the warranty and
will create unsafe operation.
Disconnect all power and gas
supplies before installing or servicing the heater.
If the power disconnect is out of sight, lock it in
the open position and tag it to prevent unexpected
application of power. Failure to do so could result
in fatal electric shock, or severe personal injury.
In cases in which property damage may result from
malfunction of the heater, a back-up system or
temperature sensitive alarm should be used.
Should overheating occur, or the gas supply fail to shut
off, shut off the manual gas valve to the appliance before
shutting off the electrical supply.
Ensure that all power sources conform
to the requirements of the unit heater, or damage to
the unit will result!
The open end of piping systems
being purged shall not discharge into areas where
there are sources of ignition or into confined spaces
UNLESS precautions are taken as follows: (1) by
ventilation of the space, (2) control of the purging
rate, (3) elimination of all hazardous conditions. All
precautions must be taken to perform this operation
in a safe manner!
Follow installation instructions CAREFULLY to avoid
creating unsafe conditions. All wiring should be done
and checked by a qualified electrician, using copper
wire only. All gas connections should be made and leaktested by a suitably qualified individual, per instructions
in this manual. Also follow procedures listed on “Gas
Equipment Start-Up Sheet” located in this manual.
Unless otherwise specified, the following conversions
may be used for calculating SI unit measurements:
1 foot = 0.305 m
1000 BTU/cu. ft. = 37.5 MJ/m3
1 inch = 25.4 mm
1000 BTU per hour = 0.293 kW
1 gallon = 3.785 L 1 inch water column = 0.249 kPa
1 pound = 0.453 kg liter/second = CFM x 0.472
1 psig = 6.894 kPa meters/second = FPM ÷ 196.8
1 cubic foot = 0.028m3
Use only the fuel for which the heater is designed (see
rating plate). Using LP gas in a heater that requires
natural gas, or vice versa, will create risk of gas leaks,
carbon monoxide poisoning, and explosion.
Conversion to a fuel other than
that listed on the rating plate is permitted
only with a factory supplied, ETL approved
conversion kit.

INSTALLATION
Do not install unit heaters in
corrosive or flammable atmospheres! Premature
failure of, or severe damage to the unit will
result!
AIR FOR COMBUSTION: The unit heater shall be
installed in a location in which the facilities for ventilation
permit satisfactory combustion of gas, proper venting,
and the maintenance of ambient air at safe limits
under normal conditions of use. The unit heater shall
be located in such a manner as not to interfere with
proper circulation of air within the confined space. When
buildings are so tight that normal infiltration does not
meet air requirements, outside air shall be introduced
per Sections 1.3.4.2 and 1.3.4.3 of ANSI Z223.1 (NFPA
54) for combustion requirements. A permanent opening
or openings having a total free area of not less than
one square inch per 5,000 BTU/Hr (1.5 kW) of total
input rating of all appliances within the space shall be
provided.
Avoid locations where extreme
drafts can affect burner operation. Unit heaters
must not be installed in locations where air
for combustion would contain chlorinated,
halogenated or acidic vapors. If located in such
an environment, premature failure of the unit will
occur!
Since the unit is equipped with an automatic gas ignition
system, the unit heater must be installed such that the
gas ignition control system is not directly exposed to
water spray, rain or dripping water.
NOTICE: Unit Heater sizing should be based on heat
loss calculations where the unit heater output equals
or exceeds heat loss.
NOTICE: Location of unit heaters is related directly
to the selection of sizes. Basic rules are as follows:
CLEARANCES: Each Gas Unit Heater shall be located
with respect to building construction and other equipment
so as to permit access to the Unit Heater. Clearance
between vertical walls and the vertical sides of the Unit
Heater shall be no less than 1 inch (25.4mm). However,
to ensure access to the control box and fan, a minimum
of 18 inches (457mm) is required for the fan, and control
box side. A minimum clearance of 1 inch (25.4mm) must
be maintained between the top of the Unit Heater and
the ceiling. The bottom of the Unit Heater must be no
less than 1 inch (25.4mm) from any combustible. The
distance between the flue collector and any combustible
must be no less than 1 inch (25.4mm). Also see AIR
FOR COMBUSTION and VENTING sections.
MOUNTING HEIGHT: If the unit heater is installed in a
garage, it must be installed with a minimum clearance
above the floor of 18 inches (457mm).
AIR DISTRIBUTION: Direct air towards areas of
maximum heat loss. When multiple heaters are involved,
circulation of air around the perimeter is recommended
where heated air flows along exposed walls. Satisfactory
results can also be obtained where multiple heaters are
located toward the center of the area with heated air
directed toward the outside walls. Be careful to avoid all
obstacles and obstructions which could impede the warm
air distribution patterns.
Unit heaters should not be installed to maintain low
temperatures and/or freeze protection of buildings. A
minimum of 50°F (10°C) thermostat setting must be
maintained. If unit heaters are operated to maintain lower
than 50°F (10°C), hot flue gases are cooled inside the
heat exchanger to a point where water vapor (a flue gas
by-product) condenses onto the heat exchanger walls. The
result is a mildly corrosive acid that prematurely corrodes
the aluminized heat exchanger and can actually drip water
down from the unit heater onto floor surface. Additional
unit heaters should be installed if a minimum 50°F (10°C)
thermostat setting cannot be maintained.
NOTICE: Increasing the clearance distances may
be necessary if there is a possibility of distortion or
discoloration of adjacent materials.
MOUNTING: The Unit Heater may be mounted with the
vent outlet, gas and electrical connections to the right or
left of the air moving fan. The Unit Heater is shipped with
the connections to the right of the fan when looking in
the direction of the air flow. If connections to the right are
required, remove hanger brackets from face of unit and
attach as pictured in Figure 3. If connections to the left
are required, invert the heater (180°), mount the hanging
brackets as above, and remove, invert, and replace the
control access panel and the air discharge louvers.
Should overheating occur, or the gas
supply fail to shut off, shut off the manual gas valve
to the appliance before shutting off the electrical
supply.
Do not use this appliance if any part
has been under water. Immediately call a qualified
service technician to inspect the appliance and
replace any gas control which has been underwater.
6
INSTALLATION (continued)
The Unit Heater may be mounted by
fastening the hanging brackets directly to
ceiling joists or by suspending from four
rods. See Figures 3, 4 and 5.
Figure 3 - Hanger Bracket Installation Instructions
Make certain that
the lifting methods used to lift the
heater and the method of suspension used in the field installation of
the heater are capable of uniformly
supporting the weight of the heater
at all times. Failure to heed this
warning may result in property
damage or personal injury!
Make sure that the
structure to which the unit heater
is to be mounted is capable of
safely supporting its weight.
Under no circumstances must the
gas lines, the venting system or
the electrical conduit be used to
support the heater; or should any
other objects (i.e. ladder, person)
lean against the heater gas lines,
venting system or the electrical
conduit for support. Failure to
heed these warnings may result
in property damage, personal
injury, or death.
D8499
Figure 4 - Heater Mounting (Steel Construction)
Unit Heaters must be
hung level from side to side and from
front to back, see Figures 3, 4 and 5.
Failure to do so will result in poor
performance and/or premature failure
of the unit.
Ensure that all
hardware used in the suspension
of each unit heater is more than
adequate for the job. Failure to
do so may result in extensive
property damage, severe personal
injury, or death!

GAS PIPING
To avoid damage or possible personal injury, do not connect gas piping to this unit
until a supply line pressure/leak test has been completed. Connecting the unit before completing the
pressure/leak test may damage the unit gas valve and result in a fire hazard.
Do not rely on a shut-off valve to isolate the unit while conducting gas pressure/leak
tests. These valves may not be completely shut off, exposing the gas valve to excessive pressure and
damage.
PIPE SIZING
To provide adequate gas pressure to the gas unit heater,
size the gas piping as follows:
NOTICE: Propane tank must be properly sized for
outdoor temperature and BTU requirement. (See
NFPA 58)
1. Find the cu. ft./hr. by using the following formula:
Input
Cu. feet/hr. =
BTU
2. Refer to Table 2. Match “Length of Pipe in Feet” with
appropriate “Gas Input - Cu. Feet/Hr.” figure. This
figure can then be matched to the pipe size at the
top of the column.
Example:
It is determined that a 67 foot (20.4m) run of gas
pipe is required to connect a 75 MBTU gas unit
heater to a 1,000 BTU/cu feet (0.29kW) natural gas
supply.
75,000 BTU/Hr
= 75 Cu. feet/hr
1,000 BTU/cu. feet
.
Using Table 2, a 3/4 inch pipe is needed.
NOTICE: If more than one unit heater is to be served
by the same piping arrangement, the total cu. ft./hr.
input and length of pipe must be considered.
NOTICE: If the gas unit heater is to be fired with LP
gas, consult your local LP gas dealer for pipe size
information.
NOTICE: HEATER INSTALLATION FOR USE WITH
PROPANE (BOTTLED) GAS MUST BE MADE BY A
QUALIFIED L.P. GAS DEALER OR INSTALLER. HE
WILL ENSURE THAT PROPER JOINT COMPOUNDS
ARE USED FOR MAKING PIPE CONNECTIONS;
THAT AIR IS PURGED FROM LINES; THAT A
THOROUGH TEST IS MADE FOR LEAKS BEFORE
OPERATING THE HEATER; AND THAT IT IS
PROPERLY CONNECTED TO THE PROPANE GAS
SUPPLY SYSTEM.
NOTE: See General Safety Information section for
English/Metric unit conversion factors.
Before any connection is made to the existing line
supplying other gas appliances, contact the local
gas company to make sure that the existing line is of
adequate size to handle the combined load.

1. Determine the required Cu. Feet/Hr. by dividing the input by 1000. For SI/Metric measurements: Convert BTU/Hr. to kilowatts. Multiply the
units inputs (kW) by 0.0965 to determine Cu. Meters./Hr. 2. FOR NATURAL GAS: Select pipe size directly from the table. 3. FOR PROPANE
GAS: Multiply the Cu. Feet/Hr. value by 0.633; then, use the table. 4. Refer to the metric conversion factors listed in the General Safety section
for SI Unit measurement conversions.
8
PIPE INSTALLATION
1. Install the gas piping in accordance with applicable
local codes.
2. Check gas supply pressure. Each unit heater must
be connected to a gas supply capable of supplying
its full rated capacity as specified in Table 3. A field
LP tank regulator must be used to limit the supply
pressure to a maximum of 14 inches W.C. (3.5 kPa).
All piping should be sized in accordance with the
latest edition of ANSI Standard Z223.1 (NFPA 54)
National Fuel Gas Code; in Canada, according to
CSA-B149. See Tables 1 & 2 for correct gas piping
size, and also refer to Tables 3, 6 and 7. If gas
pressure is excessive on natural gas applications,
install a pressure regulating valve in the line
upstream from the main shutoff valve.
3. Adequately support the piping to prevent strain on
the gas manifold and controls.
4. To prevent the mixing of moisture with gas, run the
take-off piping from the top, or side, of the main.
5. Standard Unit Heaters are supplied with a
combination valve which includes:
a. Manual “A” valve
b. Manual “B” valve
c. Solenoid valve
d. Pressure regulator
Pipe directly into the combination valve (see Figure
6).
6. Gas valve has a pressure test post requiring a
3/32 inch hex head wrench to read gas supply and
manifold pressures. Open 1/4 turn counterclockwise
to read, turn clockwise to close and reseat. A 5/16
inch ID hose fits the pressure post.
7. Provide a drip leg in the gas piping near the gas
unit heater. A ground joint union and a manual gas
shutoff valve should be installed ahead of the unit
heater controls to permit servicing. The manual
shutoff valve must be located external to the jacket.
(See Figure 6)
8. Make certain that all connections have been
adequately doped and tightened.
Do not over tighten the inlet gas
piping into the valve. This may cause stresses that
will crack the valve!
Table 3 - Gas Piping Requirements
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply
piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff
valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply
piping system at test pressures equal to or less than
1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
NOTICE: Use pipe joint sealant resistant to the
action of liquefied petroleum gases regardless of
gas conducted.
Check all pipe joints for leakage
using a soap solution or other approved method.
Never use an open flame or severe personal
injury or death may occur!
Figure 6 - Pipe Installation, Standard Controls
D3631C
D3631C
Never use an open flame to detect
gas leaks. Explosive conditions may exist which
may result in personal injury or death!
The appliance and its individual shutoff valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system during
any pressure testing of that system in excess of 1/2 psig
(3.5 kPa).

VENTING*
All unit heaters must be vented! All Venting installations shall be in accordance with the latest edition of Part 7,
Venting of Equipment of the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 (NFPA 54), or applicable provisions of local
building codes. All venting of residential tubular unit heaters must comply with CSA International Requirements
10.96 U.S. for Unit Heaters for Residential Use (2nd Edition). Refer to notes* below for Canadian installations. Refer
to Figures 12-17.
CARBON MONOXIDE! Your venting system must not be blocked by any snow, snow
drifts, or any foreign matter. Inspect your venting system to ensure adequate ventilation exists at all
times! Failure to heed these warnings could result in Carbon Monoxide Poisoning (symptoms include
grogginess, lethargy, inappropriate tiredness, or flue-like symptoms).
4. Follow the lighting instructions. Place the appliance
being inspected in operation. Adjust thermostat so
that the appliance will operate continuously.
5. After it has been determined that each appliance
connected to the venting system properly vents
when tested as outline above, return doors, windows,
exhaust fans, fireplace dampers, and any other gasburning appliance to their previous condition of use.
6. If improper venting is observed during any of the
above tests, the venting system must be corrected
immediately so that the system conforms with the
National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 (NFPA 54).
When resizing any portion of the venting system, the
venting system should be resized to approach the
minimum size as determined using the appropriate
tables in Appendix G of the National Fuel Gas Code,
ANSI Z223.1 (NFPA 54).
When an existing heater is removed or replaced in
venting system, the venting system may not be properly
sized to vent the attached appliances. An improperly
sized vent system can cause formulation of condensate
or leakage or spillage of flue gases.
The following steps shall be followed with each appliance
connected to the venting system placed in operation,
while any other appliances connected to the venting
system are not in operation:
1. Seal any unused openings in the venting system;
2. Inspect the venting system for proper size and
horizontal pitch, as required in the National Fuel
Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 (NFPA 54) and these
instructions. Determine that there is no blockage or
restriction, leakage, corrosion and other deficiencies,
which could cause an unsafe condition.
3. In so far as practical, close all building doors and
windows and all doors between the space in which
the appliance(s) connected to the venting system
are located and other spaces of the building. Turn on
clothes dryers and any exhaust fans, such as range
hoods and bathroom exhausts, so they shall operate
at maximum speed. Do not operate a summer
exhaust fan. Close fireplace damper.
The unit heater shall be connected to a factory built
chimney or vent complying with a recognized standard,
or a masonry or concrete chimney lined with a lining
material acceptable to the authority having jurisdiction.
Venting into an unlined masonry chimney is
prohibited.

27
OPERATION
POWER VENTED PROPELLER UNITS
DIRECT SPARK IGNITION
EXPLANATION OF CONTROLS:
1. Each Unit Heater comes equipped with a power
vent system that consists of a power venter motor
and blower, pressure switch, and sealed flue
collector in place of the conventional draft diverter.
2. The power venter motor is energized by the room
thermostat through the integrated control board
when a demand for heat is sensed. The pressure
switch measures the flow through the vent system
and energizes the direct spark ignition system
beginning the pre-purge timing when the flow
is correct.
8. The wall thermostat, supplied optionally, is a
temperature sensitive switch that operates the
vent system and ignition system to control the
temperature of the space being heated. The
thermostat must be mounted on a ver tical,
vibration-free surface free from air currents and in
accordance with the furnished instructions (also
refer to Electrical Section).
START-UP (Also refer to lighting instruction plate
equipped on the unit)
1. Open the manual gas valve in the gas supply line to
the unit heater with union connection loose, purge
air from the gas line. Tighten the union and check
for leaks.
The pressure switch MUST
NOT be bypassed. The unit MUST NOT be fired
unless the power venter is operating. An unsafe
condition could result.
3. The direct ignition system consists of an ignition
control module and a gas valve. When the pre-purge
period ends, the spark ignition system is energized,
and the gas valve opens to supply gas to the burner.
When the thermostat is satisfied, the vent system is
de-energized and the valve closes to stop the flow of
gas to the unit.
4. The limit switch interrupts the flow of electric current
to the control board, interrupting the flow of gas to the
gas valve if the unit heater becomes overheated.
5. The flame roll-out switch interrupts the flow of
electric current to the control board, interrupting
the flow of gas to the unit heater in the event of
sustained flame roll-out from the burner area. If
this switch trips, DETERMINE AND CORRECT
THE CAUSE of the flame roll-out.
6. Once the thermostat is satisfied, or the limit switch
interrupts the flow of electric current to the control
board, the unit will begin a post-purge period. When
the post-purge period ends, the power venter motor
is de-energized.
7. The fan operation is delayed 30 seconds once the
thermostat is closed, and continues operation for 30
seconds after the thermostat opens. The start-up
fan delay must not exceed 30 seconds from a
cold start.
Never use an open flame to detect
gas leaks. Explosive conditions may exist which
could result in personal injury or death.
2. Open the manual valve on the unit heater.
3. Turn ON the electrical power.
4. The unit should be under the control of the
thermostat. Turn the thermostat to the highest point
and determine that the power venter motor starts
and the burner ignite. Turn the thermostat to the
lowest point and determine that the power venter
motor shuts off and the burner is extinguished.
5. Turn the thermostat to the desired position.
6. See Gas Input Rate and Adjustments sections.
SHUT DOWN
1. Turn the valve selector lever to the “OFF” position.
2. Turn off the electricity.
3. To relight, follow “start-up” instructions.
See Figure 22 through 28 for parts/identification.

PRIMARY AIR ADJUSTMENT
Primary air adjustment is made at the factory. No field adjustments are necessary.
GAS INPUT RATE
Check the gas input rate as follows (Refer to General
Safety Information section for metric conversions).
Never overfire the unit heater, as this
may cause unsatisfactory operation, or shorten the
life of the heater.
1. Turn off all gas appliances that use gas through the
same meter as the unit heater.
2. Turn the gas on to the unit heater.
3. Clock the time in seconds required to burn 1 cubic
foot of gas by checking the gas meter.
4. Insert the time required to burn one cubic foot of gas
into the following formula and compute the input rate.
3600 (Sec. per Hr.) X BTU/Cu. Feet
Time (Sec.)
inches W.C. (2.5 kPa) must be maintained for proper
operation of the unit heater. If the unit is equipped
with a pressure regulator on the combination gas
valve, follow steps “a” through “d” above. If the unit
is not so equipped, the propane gas supply system
pressure must be regulated to attain this manifold
operating pressure.
3. The adjusted manifold pressure should not vary more
than 10% from pressure specified in Tables 6 & 7.

*This schedule is for units operating at normal altitudes of 2000 feet (610m)
or less.
Adjust the gas pressure as follows:
1. NATURAL GAS: Best results are obtained when
the unit heater is operating at its full rated input with
the manifold pressure of 3.5 inches WC (0.9 kPa).
Adjustment of the pressure regulator is not normally
necessary since it is preset at the factory.
However, field adjustment may be made as follows:
a. Attach manometer at the pressure tap plug below
the control outlet.
b. Remove the regulator adjustment screw cap,
located on the combination gas valve.
c. With a small screwdriver, rotate the adjustment
screw counterclockwise to decrease pressure, or
clockwise to increase pressure.
d. Replace regulator adjustment screw cap.
2. PROPANE GAS: An exact manifold pressure of 10.0
