To minimize the possibility of serious personal injury, fire,
furnace damage, or improper operation; carefully follow these
safety rules:
S
A92182
Fig. 4 -- Combustible Materials
Your gas furnace uses air from outside the home for
combustion and vents flue gas to the outdoors. It is not
to be installed using indoor air for combustion. The
vent pipe must terminate outside the structure and must
not be obstructed in any way. The air--intake pipe must
terminate outside the structure or in a well ventilated
area that is isolated from the living space and the garage
(e.g. well ventilated attic or crawlspace). Do not block
or obstruct air openings on furnace or spaces around
furnace.
S
Do not cover the furnace, store trash or debris near it, or
in any way block the flow of fresh air to the unit.
S
A furnace installed in an attic or other insulated space
must be kept free and clear of insulating material.
Examine the furnace area when the furnace is installed
or when insulation is added. Some materials may be
combustible.
S
This furnace contains SAFETY DEVICES which must
be MANUALLY RESET. If the furnace is left
unattended for an extended period of time, have it
checked periodically for proper operation. This
precaution will prevent problems associated with no
heat, such as frozen water pipes, etc. See “Before You
Request a Service Call” section in this manual.

!
WARNING
FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARD
Examine the furnace installation monthly to determine that:
1. All flue gas carrying areas external to the furnace (i.e.
chimney, vent connector) are clear and free of obstructions.
Failure to follow this warning could result in personal
injury/death or property damage.
Should the gas supply fail to shut off or if overheating
occurs, turn off the manual gas valve to the furnace
BEFORE turning off the electrical supply. (See Fig. 8.)
2. The vent connector is in place, slopes upward and is
physically sound without holes or excessive corrosion.
3. The return--air duct connection(s) is physically sound, is
sealed to the furnace casing, and terminates outside the space
containing the furnace.
S
4. The physical support of the furnace is sound without sagging
cracks, gaps, etc. around the base.
5. There are no obvious signs of deterioration of the furnace.
CHECK AIR FILTER: Before attempting to start
your furnace, be sure the furnace filter is clean and in
place. See “Performing Routine Maintenance” section
in this manual. Then proceed as follows:
Steps For Starting Your Furnace
1. Set your room thermostat to the lowest temperature setting.
(See Fig. 7.)
2. Close the external manual gas valve. (See Fig. 8.)
A92330
Fig. 5 -- Burner Flame
6. The burner flames are in good adjustment. (See Fig. 5.)
STARTING AND SHUTTING DOWN
YOUR FURNACE
Instead of a continuously burning pilot flame which wastes
valuable energy, your furnace uses an automatic, hot surface
ignition system to light the burners each time the thermostat starts
your furnace. Follow these important safeguards:
CL
Never attempt to manually light the burners with a
match or other source of flame.

5. The gas valve will have a control switch to turn off and on.
Turn the control switch on the gas control to the OFF
position and wait 5 minutes. (See Fig. 11.) Then smell for
gas, including near the floor. If you smell gas, STOP! Follow
“B” on furnace label. If you don’t smell gas, go to next step.
Read and follow the operating instructions on inside of
main furnace door, especially the item that reads as
follows:
Wait 5 minutes to clear out any gas. Then smell for gas,
including near the floor. If you smell gas, STOP!
Follow “B” in the safety information above on this
furnace label. If you don’t smell gas, go to the next
step.
6. After waiting 5 minutes, turn the control switch on the gas
control to the ON position. (See Fig. 12.)
If a suspected malfunction occurs with your gas control

7. Replace main furnace door. (See Fig. 13.)
8. Turn ON the electrical supply to the furnace and wait 1
minute. (See Fig. 14.)
9. Open the external manual gas valve. (See Fig. 15.)
10. Set the room thermostat to a temperature slightly above the
room temperature. This will automatically signal the furnace
to start.
11. When the furnace receives the start signal, the inducer is
started. When the pressure switch senses that there is suf-ficient combustion air, the hot surface igniter is energized.
After the hot surface igniter is heated for 17 seconds, the gas
valve permits gas to flow to the main burners. After ignition
and a time delay of about 30 sec, the furnace blower will start.
Variable--capacity furnaces start at medium speed until the
control makes the necessary adjustments to operate the
blower at either the low--, medium--, or high--heat speed.
A04151
A04151
Fig. 12 -- Control Switch to ON
NOTE: If the burners fail to ignite after 4 attempts, the furnace
control system will lock out. If lockout occurs, main burners fail
to light, or blower does not come on, shut down the furnace and
call your dealer for service.
6
12. Set your thermostat to the temperature that satisfies your
comfort requirements.
SUGGESTION: Setting the thermostat back a few degrees
and compensating for the difference with warmer clothing
can make a big difference in your fuel consumption. The few
degrees at the top of your thermostat “comfort level” are the
most costly degrees to obtain.
When the room temperature drops below the temperature selected
on the thermostat, the furnace will switch on automatically.
When the room temperature reaches the temperature selected on
the thermostat, the furnace will be switched off automatically.
Some thermostats have a FAN mode with 2 selections: AUTO
and ON. When set on AUTO, the furnace blower cycles on and
off. In the ON mode, the furnace blower runs continuously.
Continuous fan keeps the temperature level in your home more
evenly balanced. It also permits the indoor air to be continuously
filtered. With the unique feature Fan On Plust, the blower speed
can be increased or decreased if desired due to change of seasons,
large gatherings in your home, etc. Simply change your FAN
from ON to OFF for 1 to 3 seconds (or AUTO depending on
your thermostat), and then return to ON. The blower will switch
to the next higher speed. There are at least 3 speeds to choose
from. If the blower is running on its highest speed, a request to
change will direct the blower to return to its lowest speed.
If you own an Evolution Control, simply push the “fan” button
to change the fan speed.
