Safety Precautions
WARNING
Asphyxiation Hazard
■ Do not use this heater for heating human living
quarters.
■ Lack of proper ventilation air will lead to improper
combustion.
■ Do not use in unventilated areas.
■ Improper combustion can lead to carbon monoxide
poisoning leading to serious injur y or death.
Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning can include
headaches, dizziness and difficulty in breathing.
■ The flow of combustion and ventilation air must not be
obstructed.
■ Proper ventilation air must be provided to support the
combustion air requirements of the heater being used.
FUEL GAS ODOR
Propane gas and natural gas have man-made odorants added specifically for detection of fuel gas leaks.
If a gas leak occurs, you should be able to smell the fuel gas.
THAT’S YOUR SIGNAL TO GO INTO IMMEDIATE ACTION!
■ Do not take any action that could ignite the fuel gas. Do
not operate any electrical switches. Do not pull any
power supply or extension cords. Do not light matches
or any other source of flame. Do not use your
telephone.
■ Get everyone out of the building and away from the area
immediately.
■ Close all propane gas tank or cylinder fuel supply valves,
or the main fuel supply valve located at the meter if you
use natural gas.
■ Propane gas is heavier than air and may settle in low
areas. When you have reason to suspect a propane
leak, keep out of all low areas.
■ Use your neighbor’s phone and call your fuel gas
supplier and your fire department. Do not re-enter the
building or area.
■ Stay out of the building and away from the area until
declared safe by the firefighters and your fuel gas
supplier.
■ FINALLY, let the fuel gas service person and the
firefighters check for escaped gas. Have them air out
the building and area before you return. Properly
trained service people must repair the leak, check for
further leakages, and then relight the appliance for you.
ODOR FADING -- NO ODOR DETECTED
■ Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot
smell the odor of the man-made chemical added to
propane or natural gas. You must determine if you can
smell the odorant in these fuel gases.
■ Learn to recognize the odor of propane gas and natural
gas. Local propane gas dealers will be more than happy
to give you a scratch and sniff pamphlet. Use it to
become familiar with the fuel gas odor.
■ Smoking can decrease your ability to smell. Being
around an odor for a period of time can affect your
sensitivity to that particular odor.
■ The odorant in propane gas and natural gas is colorless
and the intensity of its odor can fade under some
circumstances.
■ If there is an underground leak, the movement of gas
through the soil can filter the odorant.
■ Propane gas odor may differ in intensity at different
levels. Since propane gas is heavier than air, there may
be more odor at lower levels.
■ Always be sensitive to the slightest gas odor. If you
continue to detect any gas odor, no matter how small,
treat it as a serious leak. Immediately go into action as
discussed previously.
ATTENTION -- CRITICAL POINTS TO REMEMBER!
■ Propane gas has a distinctive odor. Learn to recognize
these odors. (Reference Fuel Gas Odor and Odor Fading
sections above.
■ Even if you are not properly trained in the service and
repair of the heater, ALWAYS be consciously aware of
the odors of propane gas and natural gas.
■ If you have not been properly trained in repair and service
of propane gas then do not attempt to light heater,
perform service or repairs, or make any adjustments to
the heater on the propane gas fuel system.
■ A periodic sniff test around the heater or at the heater’s
joints; i.e. hose, connections, etc., is a good safety
practice under any conditions. If you smell even a small
amount of gas, CONTACT YOUR FUEL GAS SUPPLIER
IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT WAIT!

PROPANE GAS SUPPLY SIZING
The vaporization of propane is affected by several factors:
the surface area of the container, the liquid level of
propane, temperature surrounding the container, and the
relative humidity. All of these factors are specific to a site.
Therefore, a degree of experience and judgement is
required to select the proper propane supply.
Although experience is the best guide, the following
recommendations can be used as a starting point. The
table is based on experience during winter in northern
climates. If more or less favorable conditions prevail at a
specific site, adjustments can be made on the basis of
experience.

disconnect electrical supply.
2. The heater should have dir t or dust removed
periodically:
NOTE: Before each use clean the heater using
compressed air or a soft brush or dry rag on
its case and internal components. At this
time, dust off the motor case to prevent the
motor from over-heating. Also ensure the fan
blade is free of material build-up.
WARNING
Do not use a pressure washer, water, or liquid cleaning
solution on any gas controls. Use of a pressure washer,
water, or liquid cleaning solution on the control
components can cause severe personal injur y or
property damage due to water and/or liquids:
■ In electrical components, and wires causing electrical
shock or equipment failure.
■ On gas control valves causing corrosion which can
result in gas leaks and fire or explosion from the leak.
Clean all components of the heater with pressurized air,
a dry brush, or a dry cloth.
Maintenance Instructions
1. The area surrounding the heater shall be kept clear
and free from combustible materials, gasoline, and
other flammable vapors and liquids.
2. Have your gas supplier check all gas piping annually
for leaks or restrictions in gas lines.
3. Regulators must be periodically inspected to make
sure the regulator vents are not blocked. Debris,
insects, insect nests, snow, or ice on a regulator can
block vents and cause excess pressure at the heater.
4. Regulators can wear out and function improperly.
Have your gas supplier check the date codes on all
regulators installed and check delivery pressures to
the heater to make sure that the regulator is reliable.

Warranty Policy
EQUIPMENT
L.B. White Co., Inc. warrants that the component parts of its
heater are free from defects in material and workmanship,
when properly installed, operated, and maintained in
accordance with the Owner’s Manual safety guides and
labels contained with each unit. If, within 12 months from
the date of purchase by the end user, any component is
found to be defective, L.B. White Co., Inc. will at its option,
repair or replace the defective part or heater, with a new
part or heater, F.O.B., Onalaska, Wisconsin.
A warranty card on file at L.B. White will automatically
qualify the heater and its component parts for warranty
consideration. If a warranty card is not on file, a copy of the
bill of sale will be required to establish warranty
qualification. If neither is available, the warranty period will
be 12 months from date of shipment from L B. White.
PARTS
L.B. White Co., Inc. warrants that replacement parts
purchased from the company and used on the appropriate
L. B. White heater are free from defects both in material and
workmanship for 12 months from the date of purchase by
the end user. Warranty is automatic if a component is found
defective within 12 months of the date code marked on the
part. If the defect occurs more than 12 months later than
the date code but within 12 months from the date of
purchase by the end user, a copy of a bill of sale will be
required to establish warranty qualification.
The warranty set forth above is the exclusive warranty
provided by L.B. White, and all other warranties, including
any implied warranties or merchantability or fitness for a
particular purpose, are expressly disclaimed. In the event
any implied warranty is not hereby effectively disclaimed
due to operation of law, such implied warranty is limited in
duration to the duration of the applicable warranty stated
above. The remedies set forth above are the sole and
exclusive remedies available hereunder. L.B. White will not
be liable for any incidental or consequential damages
directly or indirectly related to the sale, handling or use of
the heater, and in any event L.B. White's liability in
connection with the heater, including for claims based on
negligence or strict liability, is limited to the purchase price.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied
warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of
incidental or consequential damages, so the above
limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty
gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other
rights which vary from state to state.
