RISKS OF CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING

Even though this heater operates very close to 100 percent combustion efficiency, it still produces small amounts of carbon monoxide.

• Carbon Monoxide (CO) is toxic.

• Pregnant women, persons with a heart or lung condition, anaemia or under the influence of alcohol, or those at high altitude, are more likely to be effected by Carbon Monoxide.

• CO can build up in a confined space and failure to provide adequate ventilation can be fatal.

The early symptoms of asphyxiation caused by inadequate ventilation are:

• headache

• dizziness

• nausea

• dry mouth or sore throat

Should anyone show these symptoms, they must GET FRESH AIR IMMEDIATELY.

Turn off the heater and have it serviced before using again.

Be sure to follow all warnings in this manual.

WE RECOMMEND THE USE OF A CARBON MONOXIDE

DETECTOR

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS

WARNING: READ THESE ELECTRICAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

THOROUGHLY BEFORE CONNECTING THE PRODUCT TO THE MAINS

SUPPLY.

Connect the mains lead to a standard, 230 Volt (50Hz) electrical supply through an approved BS1363/A plug fitted with a BS1362 3 amp fuse.

If the plug has to be changed because of damage, it must be removed and a replacement fitted, following the wiring instructions shown below. The old plug must be discarded safely, as insertion into a power socket could cause an electrical hazard.

WARNING: WIRES IN THE MAINS LEAD ARE COLOURED IN

ACCORDANCE WITH THE FOLLOWING CODE:

GREEN/YELLOW = EARTH, BLUE = NEUTRAL, BROWN = LIVE.

• The BLUE wire must be connected to the terminal which is marked N or coloured black.

• The BROWN wire must be connected to the terminal which is marked L or coloured red.

THEORY OF OPERATION

THE FUEL SYSTEM: The hose/regulator assembly attaches to the propane gas supply. This provides fuel to the heater.

THE AIR SYSTEM: The motor turns the fan. The fan pushes air into and around the combustion chamber. This air is heated and provides a stream of clean, hot air.

THE IGNITION SYSTEM: The piezo ignitor lights the burner.

THE AUTOMATIC CONTROL SYSTEM: Should the flame extinguish for any reason, the thermocouple will quickly cool, causing the Flame Failure valve to close, shutting off the gas supply.

Similarly, should there be a power failure, causing the fan motor to stop, the

Safety Shut-Off valve solenoid will shut off the gas supply.

Additionally, the machine is equipped with thermal overload protection, which will intervene should the unit overheat, shutting off the electrical supply.
