SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USERS OF LP-GAS
Propane (LP-Gas) is a flammable gas which can cause fires
and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and
colorless. You may not know all the following safety precautions which can protect both you and your family from an
accident. Read them carefully now, then review them point
by point with the members of your household. Someday
when there may not be a minute to lose, everyone’s safety
will depend on knowing exactly what to do. If, after reading the following information, you feel you still need more
information, please contact your gas supplier.
LP-GAS WARNING ODOR
If a gas leak happens, you should be able to smell the gas because of the odorant put in the LP-Gas.
That’s your signal to go into immediate action!
•
Do not operate electric switches, light matches, use your
phone. Do not do anything that could ignite the gas.
•
Get everyone out of the building, vehicle, trailer, or area.
Do that IMMEDIATELY.
•
Close all gas tank or cylinder supply valves.
•
LP-Gas is heavier than air and may settle in low areas such
as basements. When you have reason to suspect a gas leak,
keep out of basements and other low areas. Stay out until
firefighters declare them to be safe.
•
Use your neighbor’s phone and call a trained LP-Gas service
person and the fire department. Even though you may not
continue to smell gas, do not turn on the gas again. Do not
re-enter the building, vehicle, trailer, or area.
•
Finally, let the service man and firefighters check for escaped
gas. Have them air out the area before you return. Properly
trained LP-Gas service people should repair the leak, then
check and relight the gas appliance for you.
NO ODOR DETECTED - ODOR FADE
Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot smell the
odor of the chemical stench put into the gas. You must find out
if you can smell the odorant in propane. Smoking can decrease
your ability to smell. Being around an odor for a time can affect
your sensitivity or ability to detect that odor. Sometimes other
odors in the area mask the gas odor. People may not smell the
gas odor or their minds are on something else. Thinking about
smelling a gas odor can make it easier to smell.
The odorant in LP-gas is colorless, and it can fade under some
circumstances. For example, if there is an underground leak, the
movement of the gas through soil can filter the odorant. Odorants
in LP-Gas also are subject to oxidation. This fading can occur if
there is rust inside the storage tank or in iron gas pipes.
The odorant in escaped gas can adsorb or absorb onto or into walls,
masonry and other materials and fabrics in a room. That will take
some of the odorant out of the gas, reducing its odor intensity.
LP-Gas may stratify in a closed area, and the odor intensity could
vary at different levels. Since it is heavier than air, there may be
more odor at lower levels. Always be sensitive to the slightest
gas odor. If you detect any odor, treat it as a serious leak. Immediately go into action as instructed earlier.
SOME POINTS TO REMEMBER
•
•
•
•
Learn to recognize the odor of LP-gas. Your local LP-Gas
Dealer can give you a “Scratch and Sniff” pamphlet. Use it
to find out what the propane odor smells like. If you suspect
that your LP-Gas has a weak or abnormal odor, call your
LP-Gas Dealer.
If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform service,
or make adjustments to appliances on the LP-Gas system. If
you are qualified, consciously think about the odor of LP-Gas
prior to and while lighting pilot lights or performing service
or making adjustments.
Sometimes a basement or a closed-up house has a musty
smell that can cover up the LP-Gas odor. Do not try to light
pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments in an area
where the conditions are such that you may not detect the
odor if there has been a leak of LP-Gas.
Odor fade, due to oxidation by rust or adsorption on walls
of new cylinders and tanks, is possible. Therefore, people
should be particularly alert and careful when new tanks or
cylinders are placed in service. Odor fade can occur in new
tanks, or reinstalled old tanks, if they are filled and allowed
Page 4
•
•
to set too long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which
have been out of service for a time may develop internal rust
which will cause odor fade. If such conditions are suspected
to exist, a periodic sniff test of the gas is advisable. If you
have any question about the gas odor, call your LP-gas
dealer. A periodic sniff test of the LP-gas is a good safety
measure under any condition.
If, at any time, you do not smell the LP-Gas odorant and you
think you should, assume you have a leak. Then take the same
immediate action recommended above for the occasion when
you do detect the odorized LP-Gas.
If you experience a complete “gas out,” (the container is under no vapor pressure), turn the tank valve off immediately.
If the container valve is left on, the container may draw in
some air through openings such as pilot light orifices. If this
occurs, some new internal rusting could occur. If the valve is
left open, then treat the container as a new tank. Always be
sure your container is under vapor pressure by turning it off
at the container before it goes completely empty or having it
refilled before it is completely empty.

INSTALLATION
Ventilation and Combustion Air
Wall furnaces shall be installed in a location in which the facilities
for ventilation permit satisfactory combustion of gas and proper
venting under normal conditions. In buildings of conventional
frame, brick, or stone construction without tight storm windows
and doors, infiltration is normally adequate to provide air for
combustion and draft hood dilution.
Where appliances are installed in confined and unconfined spaces
within a building, the building being of unusually tight construction,
air for combustion and ventilation must be obtained directly from
outdoors or from such spaces that freely communicate with the
outdoors. Under these conditions, the confined and unconfined
spaces shall be provided with two permanent openings, one near
the top of the enclosure and one near the bottom; each opening
shall have a free area of not less than one square inch (6,45cm2)
per 2,000 BTU hr. (.6KW/H) of total input.
Qualified Installing Agency
Installation and replacement of gas piping, gas utilization equipment
or accessories and repair and servicing of equipment shall be
performed only by a qualified agency. The term “qualified agency”
means any individual, firm, corporation or company which either in
person or through a representative is engaged in and is responsible
for (a) the installation or replacement of gas piping or (b) the
connection, installation, repair or servicing of equipment, who is
experienced in such work, familiar with all precautions required
and has complied with all the requirements of the authority having
jurisdiction.
The installation must conform with local codes or, in the absence of
local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA
54,* Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code, CSA B149.1.
*Available from the American National Standards Institute, Inc., 11 West 42nd St.,
New York, N.Y. 10036.

INSTALLATION
Locating Furnace On Wall
The furnace is to be located on a wall. The furnace is 16 inches
(406mm) in width and normal 16 inches (406mm) on center studs
will not allow the furnace to be recessed into the wall unless a stud
is repositioned.
Compounds used on threaded joints of gas piping shall be resistant to
the action of liquefied petroleum gases. The gas lines must be checked
for leaks by the installer. This should be done with a soap solution
watching for bubbles on all exposed connections, and if unexposed, a
pressure test should be made.
A template is provided in furnace carton for locating gas line connection.
Also, refer to Figure 2 for positioning the furnace on wall and for
locating gas line connection.
Never use an exposed flame to check for leaks. Appliance must be
disconnected from piping at inlet of control valve and pipe capped
or plugged for pressure test. Never pressure test with appliance
connected; control valve will sustain damage!
Locating Gas Supply
The gas line can enter the furnace either through the floor or wall. The
gas line opening should be made at this time. Location of the opening
will be determined by the position of floor joists and the valve and
union used for servicing.
Locating Electric Supply
A 7/8” (22mm) diameter knockout is provided at the bottom of the
left and right side panels. A three-prong (grounding) plug assembly
is located within the control compartment (bottom) of the furnace.
Please remove 7/8” (22mm) knockout from appropriate side panel
when routing plug assembly to an electrical outlet.
Installation of Three-prong (Grounding) Plug Assembly
1. Disconnect nylon cap on 3’ (914mm) plug assembly from nylon
plug on wiring harness. Remove 3’ (914mm) plug assembly from
control compartment (bottom) of the furnace.
2. Remove 7/8” (22mm) knockout from appropriate side panel.
3. Insert nylon cap on 3’ (914mm) plug assembly into the 7/8” (22mm)
hole in the side panel.
4. Connect nylon cap on 3’ (914mm) plug assembly to nylon plug on
the wiring harness.
5. Place 7/8” (22mm) strain relief bushing around the cord of the 3’
(914mm) plug assembly. Insert 7/8” (22mm) strain relief bushing
into the 7/8” (22mm) hole in the side panel.
Attention! The 7/8” (22mm) strain relief bushing is located within
the same yellow envelope as the Installation Instructions and Owner’s
Manual.
Attaching Furnace to Wall
When attaching furnace to the wall remove that portion of baseboard
and molding on the wall which is behind the furnace. Attach furnace
to wall, at the outer casing top, with (2) toggle bolts provided and to
floor, at the outer casing bottom, with (2) #10 x 1 1/2” (38mm) screws
provided.
Attention! The screw holes on the outer casing bottom are off-set
above the floor approximately 3/8” (9.5mm). Do not over-tighten
screws and distort the off-set on the outer casing bottom. Distortion
of the outer casing bottom will not allow the lower front panel to be
attached to the furnace.
Gas Supply
Check all local codes for requirements, especially for the size and type
of gas supply line required. On Natural gas lines less than 15’ (4.5m)
long, use 1/2” (13mm) pipe; on longer runs, use 3/4” (19mm) iron
pipe or equal. On LP gas lines please consult LP gas supplier.
Installing a New Main Gas Cock
Each appliance should have its own manual gas cock.
A manual main gas cock should be located in the vicinity of the unit.
Where none exists, or where its size or location is not adequate, contact
your local authorized installer for installation or relocation.
12429-10-0408
A gas valve and ground joint union should be installed in the gas line
upstream of the gas control to aid in servicing. It is required by the
National Fuel Gas Code that a drip line be installed near the gas inlet.
This should consist of a vertical length of pipe tee connected into the
gas line that is capped on the bottom in which condensation and foreign
particles may collect.

Figure 4
Method of Installing a Tee Fitting Sediment Trap
The use of the following gas connectors is recommended:
— ANS Z21.24 Appliance Connectors of Corrugated Metal Tubing
and Fittings
— ANS Z21.45 Assembled Flexible Appliance Connectors of Other
Than All-Metal Construction
The above connectors may be used if acceptable by the authority
having jurisdiction.
Pressure Testing of the Gas Supply System
1. To check the inlet pressure to the gas valve, a 1/8” (3mm) N.P.T.
plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge connection, must be
placed immediately upstream of the gas supply connection to the
appliance.
2. The appliance and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected
from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of
that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
3. The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system
by closing its individual manual shutoff valve during any pressure
testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or
less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
Attention! If one of the above procedures results in pressures in
excess of 1/2 psig (14” w.c.) (3.5 kPa) on the appliance gas valve, it
will result in a hazardous condition.
Page 7
INSTALLATION
Checking Manifold Pressure
Both Propane and Natural gas valves have a built-in pressure regulator
in the gas valve. Natural gas models will have a manifold pressure
of approximately 3.5” w.c. (.871kPa) at the valve outlet with the inlet
pressure to the valve from a minimum of 5.0” w.c. (1.24kPa) for the
purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of 10.5” w.c. (2.615kPa)
Propane gas models will have a manifold pressure approximately 10.0”
w.c. (2.49kPa) at the valve outlet with the inlet pressure to the valve
from a minimum of 11.0” w.c. (2.739kPa) for the purpose of input
adjustment to a maximum of 13.0” w.c. (3.237kPa).
A 1/8” (3mm) N.P.T. plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge
connection, is located on the outlet side of the gas control.
The built-in regulator comes on at approximately 1/4th pressure and
full on in 10 seconds.
Figure 6
Electrode and pilot must be kept clean. Clean through pilot access
hole with a small brush (toothbrush) and water.
Proper Main Burner Flame
The correct flame will be a short blue inner flame with a much
larger light blue outer flame. The main burner (Figure 7) shows the
approximate height of each part of the flame for each gas. The burner
does not have a primary air adjustment. The flame will be correct if
the factory-set pressure and orifice opening are used. After the furnace
has been operating, the burner ports may be blocked by foreign matter
carried in by combustion air. Therefore, cleaning of the burner may
be needed for proper flame.
Figure 5
High Altitudes
For altitudes/elevations above 2,000 feet (610m), input ratings should
be reduced at the rate of 4 percent for each 1,000 feet (305m) above
sea level. Canadian High Altitudes for locations having an elevation
above mean sea level between 2,000 feet (610m) and 4,500 feet (1370m),
the manifold pressure is to be decreased from 3.5” w.c. (.871kPa) to
2.8” w.c. (.697kPa) for Natural Gas and from 10.0” w.c. (2.49kPa) to
8.0” w.c. (1.992kPa) for Propane Gas.
Proper Pilot Flame
The pilot flame (Figure 6) going to the spark must be large enough to
completely cover the sparking area. With the proper flame, only 2 or
3 sparks will occur. More sparks indicate a small pilot flame and no
ignition with spark stopping after approximately 90 seconds generally
means not enough flame.
To adjust pilot flame remove the pilot cover screw on the control valve
(Figure 5), and turn the adjustment screw clockwise to reduce flame.
Replace pilot cover screw to eliminate gas leakage.
The pilot flame will appear large. A blue nearly horizontal flame is
proper. The spark gap must be 1/8” (3mm) . A larger gap can result
in the spark occurring some other place. The pilot flame and the spark
gap are factory checked and tested.
After use, cleaning may be required for the proper flame.
Safety Lockout
S8600H module provides 100 percent shutoff, or safety lockout.
If the pilot fails to light within 90 seconds, the control system
will shut down. The control system must be reset by setting
the thermostat below room temperature for one minute or by
turning off power to the module for one minute.
Page 8
To clean burner port disconnect the gas supply to the valve, and remove
the eight screws fastening the burner door. After removing the burner
door from the combustion chamber, remove rear burner, pilot burner
and front burner. With front and rear burners removed from furnace,
force water into the ribbon ports and dry with air pressure.

INSTALLATION
Wiring
The appliance, when installed, must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with
the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 or Canadian Electrical
Code, CSA C22.1, if an external electrical source is utilized. This
appliance is equipped with a three-prong [grounding] plug for your
protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly
into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle. Do not cut or
remove the grounding prong from this plug. For an ungrounded
receptacle, an adapter, which has two prongs and a wire for grounding,
can be purchased, plugged into the ungrounded receptacle and its wire
connected to the receptacle mounting screw. With this wire completing
the ground, the appliance cord plug can be plugged into the adapter
and be electrically grounded. A 7/8” (22mm) hole is provided in the
junction box for use with a conduit connector if local codes require
this type of protection.
Thermostat Installation
The thermostat should be installed in the same room as the furnace 4’
(1.2m) to 5’ (1.5m) above the floor and away from another heat source
(cooking stove, hot water heater, etc.) including walls and doorways
with a heat source in an adjoining room. Do Not Install Thermostat
on Outside Wall.
Vent Safety Shutoff System
This appliance must be properly connected to a venting system. This
appliance is equipped with a vent safety shutoff system.
Warning: Operation of this wall furnace when not connected
to a properly installed and maintained venting system or
tampering with the vent safety shutoff system can result in
carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and possible death.
This furnace is equipped with a manual reset vent safety switch. The
manual reset vent safety switch will cause gas flow to the main burners
to “shut off” due to improper venting or a blocked flue.
To reset the manual reset vent safety switch:
1. Remove upper front panel.
2. Depress red manual reset button. The manual reset vent safety
switch is located on the draft diverter.
3. Replace upper front panel.
If the manual reset vent safety switch continues to “shut off” the gas
flow to the main burners a qualified service person must be contacted
to inspect for improper venting, blockage in the vent pipe or the manual
reset vent safety switch for being defective.
Insulated Vent Enclosure
Vented wall furnaces installed in buildings with flat roofs can have
poor venting. The cold vent pipe will have a delay in proper venting
and cause the wall furnace to shut “OFF” by the vent safety switch.
To prevent delayed venting as well as condensation of flue products
an insulated vent enclosure is recommended.
Use type B vent pipe and maintain at least a one inch (25mm) clearance
to combustibles.
Use metal thimble to protect vent pipe as it passes through
combustibles.

OPERATION
Module operation can be conveniently divided into two phases
for S8600H. The phases are trial for ignition and main burner
operation.
TRIAL FOR IGNITION
Pilot Ignition
Following call for heat (system start on S8600H), the module energizes
the first main valve operator. The first main valve opens, which allows
gas to flow to the pilot burner. At the same time, the electronic spark
generator in the module produces a 13,000 volt spark pulse output (at
25 pf load). The voltage generates a spark at the igniter-sensor that
lights the pilot.
Page 11
SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE SUGGESTIONS
If the pilot does not light, or the pilot flame current is not at least
1.0 uA and steady, the module will not energize the second main
valve and the main burner will not light.
Safety Lockout
S8600H provides 100 percent shutoff, or safety lockout. A timer
starts timing the moment the trial for ignition starts. Ignition spark
continues only until the timed trial for ignition period ends. Then
the module goes into safety lockout. Lockout de-energizes the
first main valve operator and closes the first main valve in the gas
control, stopping pilot gas flow. The control system must be reset
by setting the thermostat below room temperature for one minute
or by turning off power to the module for one minute.
Main Burner Operation
When the pilot flame is established, a flame rectification circuit
is completed between the sensor and burner ground. The flame
sensing circuit in the module detects the flame current, shuts off the
spark generator and energizes the second main valve operator. The
second main valve opens and gas flows to the main burner, where
it is ignited by the pilot burner. The flame current also holds the
safety lockout timer in the reset (normal) operating condition.
When the call for heat ends, both main valve operators are deenergized, and both main valves in the gas control close.
CAUTION: Label all wires prior to disconnection when
servicing controls. Wiring errors can cause improper and
dangerous operation. Verify proper operation after servicing.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Important
1. The following service procedures are provided as a general
guide.
2. Meter readings between gas control and ignition module must
be taken within the trial for ignition period. Once the ignition
module locks out, the system must be reset by setting the
thermostat down for at least one minute before continuing.
3. If any component does not function properly, make sure it is
correctly installed and wired before replacing it.
4. The ignition module cannot be repaired. If it malfunctions, it
must be replaced.
5. Only trained, experienced service technicians should service
intermittent pilot systems.
Perform the CHECKOUT steps on page 10 as the first step in
troubleshooting. Then check TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
to pinpoint the cause of the problem. If troubleshooting indicates
an ignition problem, see Ignition System Checks below to isolate
and correct the problem.
Following troubleshooting, perform the CHECKOUT procedure
(page 10 ) again to be sure system is operating normally.
Ignition System Checks
Step 1: Check ignition cable.
Make sure:
A. Ignition cable does not touch any metal surfaces.
B. Ignition cable is no more than 36 inches (914mm) long.
C. Connections to the ignition module and to the igniter-sensor
are clean and tight.
D. Ignition cable provides good electrical continuity.
Step 2: Check ignition system grounding.
Nuisance shutdowns are often caused by a poor or erratic
ground.
A. A common ground, usually supplied by the pilot burner
bracket, is required for the module and the pilot burner/igniter
sensor.
• Check for good metal-to-metal contact between the pilot
burner bracket and the main burner.
• Check the ground lead from GND (BURNER) terminal on
the module to the pilot burner. Make sure connections are
clean and tight. If the wire is damaged or deteriorated, replace
it with No. 14-18 gauge, moisture-resistant, thermoplastic
insulated wire with 105 C (221 F) minimum rating.
• If flame rod or bracket are bent out of position, restore to
correct position.
• Replace pilot burner/igniter sensor if insulator is
cracked.
Step 3: Check spark ignition circuit. You will need a short jumper
wire made from ignition cable or other heavily insulated
wire.
A. Close the manual gas valve.
B. Disconnect the ignition cable at the SPARK terminal on the
module.
12429-10-0408
WARNING
When performing the following steps, do not touch stripped
end of jumper or SPARK terminal. The ignition circuit
generates 13,000 volts at 25 pf load and electrical shock
can result.
C.Energize the module and immediately touch one end of the jumper
firmly to the GND terminal on the module. Move the free end
of the jumper slowly toward the SPARK terminal until a spark
is established.
D. Pull the jumper slowly away from the terminal and note the
length of the gap when sparking stops. Check table below.

or longer.
Step 4: Check pilot flame current.
A. Turn off furnace at thermostat.
B. Disconnect main valve wire from the TH or MV terminal on
the gas control.
C. Disconnect ground wire from GND (BURNER) terminal at
module.
D. Connect a meter (dc microamp scale) in series with the ground
lead.
• Disconnect ground lead from GND terminal on ignition
module.
• Connect the black (negative) meter lead to the ignition
module GND (BURNER) terminal.
• Connect the red (positive) meter lead to the free end of the
ground lead.
E. Set thermostat to call for heat. The spark will light the pilot but
the main burner will not light because the main valve actuator
is disconnected.
F. Read the meter. The flame sensor current must be steady and
at least 1.0 uA.
G. If the reading is less than the minimum or unsteady,
• Make sure pilot flame envelopes 3/8 (9.5mm)to 1/2 inch
(13mm) of the flame rod.
• If necessary, adjust pilot flame by turning the pilot
adjustment screw on the gas control clockwise to decrease
or counterclockwise to increase pilot flame. Following
adjustment, always replace pilot adjustment cover screw
and tighten firmly to assure proper gas control operation.
• Check for cracked ceramic insulator, which can cause short
to ground, and replace igniter-sensor if necessary.
• Make sure electrical connections are clean and tight. Replace
damaged wire with moisture-resistant No. 18 wire rated for
continuous duty up to 105 C (221 F).
H. Remove meter and reconnect all wires. Return system to
normal operation before leaving job.
