PRECAUTIONS:
the control system and any gas control which has
been underwater.
9. Operating heater above elevations of 4,500 feet
could cause pilot/ODS to shutdown heater.
10. Always run heater with control knob in a locked
position. Never set control knob between locked
positions. Poor combustion and higher levels of
carbon monoxide may result if control knob is left
between locked positions.
DANGER: Carbon monoxide poisoning may lead to
death.­
1. 20,000 BTU or 30,000 BTU may not be installed
in a bedroom or bathroom, or any place where a
strong wind would shut down the appliance.
2. This heater needs outside ventilation air to run
properly. The Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS)
safety shutoff system shuts down the heater if not
enough fresh air is available. See Fresh Air for
Combustion and Ventilation, pages 5 through 6.
WARNING: An unvented heater having an input
of more than 10,000 Btu/hr (2 931W) shall not be
installed in a bedroom or bathroom.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning:
3. Keep all air openings in heater clear, free of debris
or any blockage. This will insure that enough air for
proper combustion enters the heater.
4. If heater shuts off, do not relight until you provide
fresh, outside air. If heater keeps shutting off, it
requires servicing.
5. Turn off and unplug heater and let cool before
servicing. Only a qualified service person should
service and repair heater.
6. Do not run heater:
Early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning resemble
the flu, with headaches, dizziness, or nausea. If you
have these signs, the heater may not be working
properly. Get fresh air at once! Have heater serviced.
Some people are more affected by carbon monoxide
than others. These include pregnant women, persons
with heart or lung disease or anemia, those under the
influence of alcohol, and those at high altitudes.
Propane/LP Gas:
Propane/LP gas is odorless. An odor making agent is
added to propane/LP gas. The odor helps you detect
a Propane/LP gas leak. However the odor added to
propane/LP gas may be present even though no odor
exists. Make certain you read and understand all
warnings. Keep this manual for reference. It is your
guide to safe and proper operation of this heater.
• Where flammable liquids or vapors are used or stored
• During dusty conditions.
7. Before using furniture polish, wax, carpet cleaner
or similar products, turn heater off. If heated the
vapors from these products may create a white
powder residue within burner box or on adjacent
walls or furniture.
8. Do not use heater if any part has been underwater.
Immediately call a qualified service technician to
inspect the room heater and to replace any part of

SAFETY DEVICE
This heater has a pilot with an Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) safety shut off system. The ODS/pilot shuts
off the heater if there is not enough fresh air.
IGNITION SYSTEM / BATTERY INSTALLATION
– The heater is equipped with an electronic manual
ignitor. This system requires no matches, or other
source to light heater, but does require one AA battery
to operate ignitor. (AA Battery included).
Unusually Tight Construction
If your home meets all of the three following criteria you
must provide additional fresh air. See Ventilation Air
from Outdoors, page 6.
Unusually tight construction is defined as construction
where:
a.Walls and ceilings exposed to the outside
atmosphere have a continuous water vapor retarder
with a rating of one perm (6 x 10-11 kg per pa-sec-m2)
or less with openings gasketed or sealed and
b.Weather stripping has been added on operable
windows and doors, and
c. Caulking or sealants are applied to areas such
as joints around windows and door frames,
between wall-ceiling joints, between wall panels, at
penetrations for plumbing, electrical, and gas lines,
and at other openings.
If your home does not meet all of the three criteria
above, see Determine the Type of Heater Location
Space, page 5.
To install or replace battery unscrew the ignitor cap
(red button), insert battery positive (+) terminal up
and replace cap.
(AA Battery included)
THERMOSTATIC CONTROL
These heaters have a control valve with a thermostat
sensing bulb. This results in the greatest heater comfort
and may result in lower bills.
BLOWER FAN CONTROL SWITCH OPERATION
These heaters also include an electrical blower. The
blower switch has three positions: MANUAL, OFF and
AUTO. In AUTO, the blower will turn on and off as the
heater cycles on and off. On MANUAL, the blower will run
continuously. To turn blower off, use the OFF position.
LOCAL CODES
Install and use heater with care.
Installation must conform to local codes or in the
absences of local codes, use the latest edition of
National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54.
Confined Space and Unconfined Space
The National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA 54/ ANSI Z223.1
defines a confined space as a space whose volume is
less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour (4.8 m3
per kW) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances
installed in that space, and an unconfined space as a
space whose volume is not less than 50 cubic feet per
1,000 Btu per hour (4.8 m3 per kW) of the aggregate
input rating of all appliances installed in that space.
Rooms communicating directly with the space in which
the appliances are installed*, through openings not
furnished with doors, are considered a part of the
unconfined space.
UNPACKING
1. Remove heater from carton.
2. Remove all protective packaging applied to
heater for shipment.
3. Check heater for any shipping damage. If
heater is damaged, promptly inform dealer
where you bought heater.

Installation Instructions and Owner’s Manual
*Adjoining rooms are communication only if there
are door less passageways or ventilation grills
between them.
Air From Inside Building (Figure 2).
B.Vent room directly to the outdoors. See Ventilation
Air From Outdoors (Figure 3).
C.Install a lower Btu/hr heater if lower Btu/hr size
makes room unconfined.
If actual Btu/hr used is less than the maximum Btu/
hr the space can support, the space is an unconfined space. You will need no additional fresh air
ventilation.
DETERMINING THE TYPE OF HEATER
LOCATION SPACE:
Use this method to determine if you have a confined or
unconfined space.
Note: the space includes the room in which you
install heater plus any adjoining rooms with doorless
passageways or ventilation grills between the rooms.
1.Find the volume of the space by multiplying room
length x width x height.
Example: Space size 18ft (length) x 18ft. (width) x 8ft. (height) = 2592
If additional ventilation to adjoining room is supplied
with grills or openings, add the volume of these rooms
to the total volume of the space.
2.Divide the space volume by 50 cubic feet to determine the maximum Btu/hr the space can support.
Example: 2592 cu.ft. (volume of space) / 50 cu.ft. = 51.8 or 51,800 (maximum Btu/hr the space can support)
WARNING: If the area in which the heater may be
operated is smaller than defined as an unconfined
space or if the building is of unusually tight
construction, provide adequate combustion and
ventilation air by the methods described in the
National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA 54/ ANSI Z223.1,
Section 5.3 or applicable local codes.­
3.Add the Btu/hr of all the fuel-burning appliances
in the space such as, Vent–free heater, Gas water
heater, Gas furnace, Vented gas heater, Gas fireplace logs, and Other gas appliances*
*Do not include direct-vent gas appliances. Directvent draws combustion air from the outdoors and
vents to the outdoors.
Example: Gas water heater
40,000 Btu/hr
Vent Free Heater +
20,000 Btu/hr
Total
=60,000 Btu/hr
4.Compare the maximum Btu/hr the space can support
with the actual amount of Btu/hr used.
Example: 51,800 Btu/hr (maximum Btu/hr the space can support)
60,000 Btu/hr (Actual amount of Btu/hr used)
The space in the above example is a confined
space because the actual Btu/hr used is more than
the maximum Btu/hr the space can support.
You must provide additional fresh air. Your options
are as follows:
A.Rework worksheet, and the space of an adjoining
room. If the extra space provides an unconfined
space, remove door to adjoining room or add
ventilation grills between the rooms. See Ventilation
Unvented LP-Gas Vent Free Room Heaters
VENTILATION AIR
Ventilation from Inside Building
This fresh air would come from an adjoining unconfined
space. When ventilation to an adjoining unconfined
space, you must provide two permanent openings:
one within 12” of the ceiling and one within 12” of
the floor on the wall connecting the two spaces (see
options 1 & 2 of fig. 2). You can also remove door into
adjoining room (see option3, fig 2). Follow the National
Fuel Gas Code NFPA 54/ ANSI Z223.1, Section 5.3,
Air for Combustion and Ventilation for required size of
ventilation grills or ducts.

space must have enough fresh air to supply all appliance in both spaces.­
LOCATING HEATER
Ventilation from Outdoors
This heater is designed to be mounted on the wall. The
heater can also be located on a non-combustible floor,
away from a wall by using the floor mounting stands
included with the heater. If installed on combustible
flooring such as carpeting, tile or other combustible
material other than wood flooring, the heater must be
placed on a wood panel the full width and depth of the
appliance.
For convenience and efficiency, install the heater:
If necessary provide extra fresh air by using ventilation
grills or ducts. Connect these items directly to the
outdoors or spaces open to the outdoors. These
include attics* and crawl spaces. Follow the National
Fuel Gas Code NFPA 54/ ANSI Z223.1, Section 5.3,
Air for Combustion and Ventilation for required size of
ventilation grills or ducts.
*IMPORTANT: Do not provide openings for inlet or
outlet into attic. If attic has a thermostat-controlled
power vent, heated air entering the attic will activate
the power vent.
IMPORTANT: Vent-free heaters add moisture to
the air. Although this is beneficial, installing heater
in rooms without enough ventilation air may cause
mildew to form from too much moisture. See Fresh Air
for Combustion and Ventilation, pages 5 through 6.­

Installation Instructions and Owner’s Manual
CAUTION: Never connect heater directly to the Propane
supply. This heater requires an external regulator (not
supplied). Install the external regulator between the
heater and Propane/LP supply.­
IMPORTANT: The installer must supply an external
regulator. The external regulator will reduce the
incoming gas pressure to between 11 and 14
inches of water. If you do not reduce incoming gas
pressure heater regulator damage could occur.
Install external regulator with the vent pointing
down. Pointing the vent down protects it from
freezing rain or sleet.
CAUTION: Use only new black iron or steel pipe.
Internally-tinned copper tubing may be used in certain
areas. Check your local codes. Use pipe of larger
enough diameter to allow proper gas volume to heater.
If pipe is too small, undue loss of pressure will occur.­
IMPORTANT: Hold pressure regulator with wrench
when connecting it to gas piping and/or fittings.
CHECKING GAS CONNECTIONS
WARNING: Test all gas piping and connections for
leaks after installing or servicing. Correct all leaks
at once.­
WARNING: Never use an open flame to check for
a gas leak. Apply a mixture of liquid soap and water
to all joints. Bubbles forming show a leak. Correct
all leaks at once.­
PRESSURE TESTING GAS SUPPLY PIPING

1. Close equipment shutoff valve (see figure 13).
2. Pressurize supply piping system by either using
compressed air or opening main gas valve on
or near gas meter.
3. Check all joints from the gas meter to
equipment shutoff valve (see figure 14). Apply
mixture of liquid soap and water to gas joints.
Bubbles forming show a leak.
4. Correct all leaks at once.
5. Depressurize and relieve pressure from supply
piping system.
*A CSA/AGA certified equipment shutoff valve with
1/8” NPT tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge
connection. Purchase the CSA/AGA certified equipment
shutoff valve from your dealer.
IMPORTANT: Install an equipment shutoff valve in an
accessible location. The equipment shutoff valve is for
turning on or shutting off the gas to the appliance.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male threads. This will
prevent excess sealant from going into pipe. Excess
sealant in pipe could result in clogged heater fuel train.
CAUTION: Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant to LP-Gas.­
Install sediment trap in supply line as shown in figure
12. Locate sediment trap where it is within reach
for cleaning. A sediment trap traps moisture and
contaminants. This keeps them from going into heater.
If sediment trap is not installed or is installed improperly,
heater may not run correctly.

THERMOSTAT CONTROL OPERATION
D. Do not use this appliance if any part has been
underwater. Immediately call a qualified service
technician to inspect the appliance and to
replace any part of the control system which
has been underwater.
FOR IR20LPT / IR30LPT: The thermostatic control
used simply turns on and off the burner.
FOR BF20LPT / BF30LPT: The thermostatic control
used modulates the flame size as the temperature gets
closer to set point, then it turns off the burner upon
reaching temperature.
The burner will cycle back on when room temperature
drops below the set temperature. The control knob can
be set to any heat level between 1 and 5. Selecting the
HI setting will cause the burner to remain on.

WARNING: Failure to keep the primary air
opening(s) of the burner(s) clean may result in
sooting and property damage.­
Air passageways
• Use a vacuum cleaner or pressurized air to
clean
Exterior
• Use a soft cloth dampened with a mild soap
and water mixture. Wipe the cabinet to remove
dust.
CLEANING ODS/PILOT AND BURNER
• Use as vacuum cleaner, pressurized air or
small soft bristled brush to clean.
CLEANING BURNER PILOT AIR HOLE INLET
We recommend that you clean the unit ever 2,500
hours of operation or every three months. We also
recommend that you keep the burner tube and pilot
assembly clean and free of dust and dirt. To clean these
parts we recommend using compressed air no greater
than 30 psig.
This can be done by using a vacuum cleaner in the
blow position, using compressed air in a can, please
follow the directions on the can. If you don’t follow
directions on the can you could damage the burner or
pilot assembly. In addition, the directions that follow
should also be followed.
1. Shut off the unit, including the pilot. Allow the
unit to cool for at least thirty minutes.
2. Inspect burner and pilot for dust and dirt.
3. Blow air through the port/slots and holes in the
burner.
A yellow tip on the pilot flame indicates dust and dirt in
the pilot assembly. To clean the pilot assembly find the
small pilot air inlet hole about two inches from where
the pilot flame comes out of the pilot assembly (see
figure 18). With the unit off, lightly blow air through the
air inlet hole. You may blow through a drinking straw if
compressed air is not available.
