WARNING
TAMPERING WITH THE SAFETY SWITCH CAN RESULT IN CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING AND
POSSIBLE DEATH.
This thermally activated switch, located in front of the draft
hood, senses an increase in temperature and acts as a
safety shut-off, see "A". It shuts down the gas to the main
burner in the event of a severe downdraft of air or a blocked
or disconnected chimney flue. If the flue is blocked or has
no "draw", the safety switch will automatically shut off the
supply of gas to the main burner within 10 minutes.

IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY, A FIRE OR EXPLOSION MAY RESULT
CAUSING PROPERTY DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY OR LOSS OF LIFE.
ALWAYS LIGHT THE PILOT WHETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME OR IF THE GAS SUPPLY HAS RUN OUT WITH
THE GLASS DOOR OPENED OR REMOVED.
Ensure that a continuous gas flow is at the burner before installing the door. When lit for the first time, the appliance will
emit an odor for a few hours. This is a normal temporary condition caused by the "burn-in" of paints and lubricants used in
the manufacturing process and will not occur again.
After extended periods of non-operation such as following a vacation or a warm weather season, the appliance may emit a
slight odor for a few hours. This is caused by dust particles in the heat exchanger burning off. In both cases, open a
window to sufficiently ventilate the room.
FOR YOUR SAFETY READ BEFORE LIGHTING:
A. This appliance is equipped with a pilot which must be lit by hand while following these instructions exactly.
B. Before operating smell all around the appliance area for gas and next to the floor because some gas is heavier than
air and will settle on the floor.
C. Use only your hand to turn the gas control knob. Never use tools. If the knob will not turn by hand, do not try to
repair it. Call a qualified service technician. Force or attempted repair may result in a fire or explosion.
D. 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 part of the control system and any gas control which has been under water.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS:
