GUIDE TO

FUEL

SELECTION

Use only

PURE , CLEAN, WATER-CLEAR KEROSENE.

Do not use diesel fuel, fuel oil, or heating oil . The proper operation of your heater depends on the correct fuel.

Purchase your kerosene from a reliable, reputable source and always check that the kerosene meets the requirements of your heater.

1 Use of inferior kerosene (deteriorated or impure) will cause severe damage within 1 to 30 days. Depending on the specific impurity or contamination, any of the following symptoms may occur:

A Plugged wick low flame level, insufficient heat

Chimney does not glow properly or heater burns only a few minutes.

B STRONG odor.

C Tar or carbonations build up on wick which, if extreme, can make wick lowering difficult.

2. Determination of impure or deteriorated kerosene:

DETERIORATION

A Badly deteriorated kerosene is yellow and has a sour smell. Good quality kerosene is as clear as tap-water.

B Kerosene stored for extended periods of time becomes deteriorated. Use fresh kerosene only.

Kerosene stored in plastic containers may deteriorate in 1 2 weeks.

C Kerosene stored in direct sunlight, high temperatures, or open containers deteriorates rapidly.

IMPURITIES

A Kerosene with even minute amounts of water or • dirt content. ·

B Kerosene mixed with even minute amounts of other oils such as machine oil, vegetable oil, or lubricating oil.

C Use of containers which have previously been used to store other oils or fuels or pumps which have been used for other fuels will contaminate kerosene.

WARNING:

NEVER USE CONT A!NERS HAVING RESID-

UAL AMOUNTS OF VOLATILE FUELS SUCH

AS GASOLINE , BECAUSE OF DANGERO USLY

I CREASED FLAMMABILITY A D RISK

OF F IR E!!

D Always rinse the interior of old containers with clean kerosene several times, prior to use.

3 What to do if impure or deteriorated kerosene is used:

A Drain old kerosene from fuel tank and reservoir.

Rinse with clean kerosene several times.

(lf any of the impure kerosene remains the trouble may recur).

B Fill heater with clean, fresh kerosene.

C

Clean the wick as per instructions under "Care of the Wick".

D If the wick still does not function properly after • cleaning, the wick must be replaced to obtain proper heating. (See instructions under "Replacement ofWick".)

CARE

OF THE 'VICK

The wick used in this heater is made of heat resistant fiberglass, which does not burn, and should la st for a long time with proper care .

Taking care of the wick will insure your getting the maximum pleasure and efficiency from your heater, and will help you to avoid the expense of replacing the wick .

ONCE A MONTH, BURN

THE WICK

OFF TO RE-

MOVE ANY ACCUMULATION

OF TAR AND CAR-

BON ON THE TOP

OF THE WICK.

Approximately once a month operate the heater without refueling it.

2 As the wire coil starts to become dark (caused by the wick going out), turn the wick control knob clockwise until it stops, to raise the wick as high as possible

.

3 Allow the heater to continue burning until it goes out completely and any flame on the wick has extinguished itself.

4 After the heater has cooled sufficiently, open the grill, remove the burner chimney, raise the wick to its highest setting, and carefully remove lo osened tar and carbon from the wick with a brush or cloth

.

5

Carefully remove any accumulated carbon deposits from the wick guide and outer wick guide assembly using a screwd river or similar tool. Take care not to damage the wick or burner chimney assembly.

6

Depress the "OF F " lever to lower the wick, and replace the burner chimney.

7 After filling the fuel tank , wait 30 minutes before lighting to allow the wick to absorb sufficient kerosene.

12 Raise the wick several times and lower it using the shut off lever. If the wick does not operate correctly, repeat Steps 5 through

11.

13 Re-install the insulation plates. First install the front p l ate .

It probably will be necessary to pull slightly on the ignition device to allow the front plate to slip into place. Next, install rear plate. The two catches should engage the rectangular holes on either side of front plate (Fig.

23).

14 The small notch on the edge of the orange indicator dial (located directly behind the wick control knob) should point straight up.

If necessary adjust the dial to that setting .

Failure to do so will not permit the proper adjustment and operation of the wick within the Normal

Range (Fig. 24).

15 Replace the cabinet and front pane l by reversing steps

1 3.

16 After making sure the wick is lowered by depressing the

"SHUT-OFF"lever, replace the burner chimney.

17 Wait thirty (30) minutes before lighting the heater to allow the wick to absorb sufficient kerosene.
