PLACEMENT:
This unit is designed to be used in various configurations. In greenhouses it
may be positioned directly on the ground or suspended from the greenhouse
structure. In aircraft hangars or garages, the unit will need to be suspended.
1.
This unit may be suspended if necessary. Suitable framework, capable of handling
the weight of the furnace, can be fabricated from angle, channel or tubing material.
An eye bolt can be inserted in each corner or end of the angles, channels or beams to
provide 4 corner support (4 req.). These bolts can then be installed thru a suitable
ceiling joist etc.
2.
Obviously, the structure must be strong enough to carry the additional weight of the
furnace, snow load and any possible future modifications or additions.
240 RH – 650#, 360 RH – 780#.
2.
In greenhouses, this unit is normally installed on four (4) bricks setting directly on the
ground. A variety of openings can be supplied on these furnaces.
3.
The furnaces require:
A. 12” distance to any combustible material. (See General Info for exceptions)
B. 12” of space for combustion air and blower supply air.
C. Approximately 1 sq. ft. of inlet area per 150,000 BTU/hr input. In many cases,
normal building cracks make up more than this area.
D. Approximately 5 sq. ft. of return air area. The heated air must have a free path
out of and back to the furnace. DO NOT restrict the discharge vents.
E. A barometric device (supplied by the manufacturer) in the same room as the
furnace. On the RH360 model, a 12” extension must be installed between the
barometric device and the furnace to prevent back draft and to prevent flue gases
from entering the blower inlet.
F. Plenty of access space for servicing the blower motor, burner, etc. Access must
also be provided to reach the gas valve and shut offs in case of an emergency.
G. That all local codes are followed when installing the regulation flue pipes.

VENTING
Vent connectors serving Category I & Category II heaters shall not be connected into any
portion of mechanical draft systems operating under positive pressure.
This furnace is equipped with a blocked vent shut off system.
DO NOT attempt to run this furnace until a qualified service man has checked the
installation.
INSTALLATION
The installation must conform with local building codes or in the absence of local codes, the
installation must conform with the National Fuel Code, ANSI Z223.1
Your furnace has been provided with a Draft Hood. This device must be used. This
furnace also requires a blocked vent shut off device or spill switch (snap disc). The
electrical schematic shows how this device is wired into the furnace controls. This device
must be reset each time the sensor detects a venting failure. If the Blocked Vent switch
has locked the system out, contact a qualified service man before attempting to restart the
furnace.
NOTE: Negative room pressures in buildings with exhaust fans will cause the blocked vent
device to lock the gas valve out. (Heating will cease)
GENERAL RULES
1.
Do not reduce the stack size anywhere in the entire vent system..
2.
The stack must not be closer than 12” to any combustible material.
3.
All horizontal runs must slope upwards not less than ¼” per foot from the heater
towards the vertical riser or extension.
4.
All horizontal runs must be supported to prevent sagging.
The venting may be supported by steel strap or wires around the tube and tied up to
any convenient overhead support. Supports must be provided at each connection.
5.
Each connection should be secured by at least three sheet metal screws. More may be
necessary depending upon installation.
6.
The stack must be installed in such a manner to prevent accumulation of condensation.
7.
If required, the stack must have a method of draining the condensation.
8.
Use any type B flue or vent connectors. Unless local codes specify a superior type of
flue or vent connectors.
9.
Venting failures can be caused by adverse weather, exhaust fans being on at the same
time as the furnace, inadequate make up air supply, lack of down-draft cap, etc.
10. Never allow less than 2’ vertical pipe for each 1’ of horizontal vent pipe.
11. Draft should never be less than .02” WC nor over .05” WC.

“H” – Horizontal Pipe (must slope upwards away from furnace, ¼” per foot of horizontal
distance)

GASES FROM ENTERING THE BUILDING……………………..

GAS SUPPLY INFORMATION
This furnace is designed to run on several gas types. Natural and LP are the most
common. Each furnace is set up for one type of gas. DO NOT attempt to burn another
type of gas without replacing proper burner and gas valve modifications.
1.
An Individual shut off valve is required for each furnace before the gas regulator.
2.
The heater and its individual shut off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply
piping system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressure in excess of
½ PSIG (3.5kPa).
3.
The heater must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing it’s own
individual manual shut off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping
system at test pressures less than or equal to ½ PSIG (3.5kPa).
4.
A 1/8” NPT, plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge connections, must be installed
immediately upstream from the gas supply connection to the heater.
5.
The combustion chamber may be cleaned with compressed air thru the stack opening
and thru the fresh air inlet. (Remove the burner tray.) The burner manifold and
nozzles may be brushed off and cleaned with compressed air. Any blocked nozzles
may be opened by pushing a soft wire through the opening in the nozzle. DO NOT
enlarge the nozzle orifices.

B. The orifice may be unscrewed and the correct orifices screwed back in.
Pilot Orifice – LP (red colored)

C. The entire pilot assembly should be removed and the correct pilot installed. The
pilot line should be aluminum. Gas Valve Regulator Spring – LP (red colored), NAT
(plain).
The large slotted screw on the top of the regulator should be removed to exchange
regulator springs. After any of these changes are made, manifold gas pressure tests
must be made. The gas valve must be adjusted correctly for proper furnace
performance and operation. Water column manometers are preferred over dial type
manometers.

Furnace Adjustments
Pilot Adjustment
The pilot flame should bathe the thermocouple in flame (1 ½” – 2”). Each gas valve has a pilot
flame adjustment. Remove the screw beside the pilot gas line on the gas valve.
The adjustment screw is down in this threaded hole. Turn counter-clockwise to increase flow.

Replace pilot adjustment cap.
Leak test.
To Light Pilot – Follow procedures on page 3, “Operating Instructions” of the “Robertshaw
Installation Data” insert in the rear of the manual.
Main Burner Adjustment
The gas system should have its pressure tested. See Rating Plate for required pressures.
See “Robertshaw Installation Data” in appendix for more information about these valves.
The gas valve has an adjustable pressure regulator. The largest screw on the top of the gas
valve must be removed to gain access to the adjustment screw. Turn clock-wise to increase
the flow.
Blower Belt Adjustment
The blower belt must be loose enough that ½” to 1” of belt deflection can be obtained with a
gentle push on the belt, mid-point between pulleys. Furnace power must be off while
performing this check.
Fan & Limit Adjustments
Each fan and limit has three settings. Before making any adjustments, the rotating dial must
be held in place with one finger or thumb while another finger on the other hand is used to
change the setting, being careful not to damage or strain the sensing element.
