SAFETY DEVICES
Overheat Switch
When the heater gets too hot during operation (for example when the filters or air outlet louvers are
blocked) this device turns the gas off automatically. Remove cause of overheat (clean filters) allow
heater to cool, then re-ignite.
Fuse
The electrical circuits are protected by a fuse. When the fuse blows, the heaters will not operate at
all. The fuse must be replaced by an authorized person.
Flame Failure Device
This device automatically cuts off the gas supply to the heater in the event of a gas failure. To
restore the gas supply to the heater, turn it off, then follow the ignition procedure.
Oxygen Depletion Safety Device
If the oxygen level in the room drops below a pre-set limit, this device cuts the gas supply off to the
heater. If the oxygen depletion device operates, tum the heater off, ventilate the room, then follow
the ignition procedure to re-light. Heater will not re-light until room is fully ventilated.
Tilt Switch
If the heater is knocked over, the tilt switch will cut the gas supply off. The fan keeps running. To
restore the gas supply, stand the heater upright, turn it off then follow the ignition procedure. The tilt
switch may also operate if the heater is jolted or picked up while in operation.
Power Failure
In the event of a power failure or power cut, the gas valves will automatically close. After the power
is re-instated the appliance must be restarted manually.

INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS
NOTICE BEFORE INSTALLATION
The heater must be installed by a qualified service person according to this installation instructions.
When used without adequate combustion and ventilation heater air may give off carbon monoxide.
Check your local building codes for the proper method of installation. In the absence of local codes, this
heater installation must conform with American National Standard (National Fuel Gas Code) ANSI
Z223.1.
Available from the American National Standards Institute, Inc.,
1430 Broadway, New York, NY 10018, or from the National Fire
Protection Association, Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269.
All correspondence
should refer to Model No., Serial No., and type of gas.
WARNING: Electrical Grounding Instructions
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.
This appliance may be installed in an aftermarket manufactured (mobile) home where not prohibited by
state or local code.
Aftermarket = completion of sale, not for purpose of resale from manufacturer.
This heater shall not be installed in a confined space or unusually tight construction unless provisions
are provided for adequate combustion and ventilation air.
The National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1 defines a confined space as a space whose volume is less
than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour (4.8m 3per kW) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances
installed in that space and an unconfined space as a space whose volume is not less than 50 cubic feet
per 1,000 Btu per hour (4.8m 3 per kW) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that
space.
Rooms communicating directly with the space in which the appliances are installed, through openings
not furnished with doors, are considered a part of the unconfined space.
The following formula can be used to determine the
maximum heater rating per the definition of
unconfined space:
BTU/HR=(LI+L2)Ft
x (W)Ft × (H)Ft x 1000
50
Consider two connecting rooms with an open area
W.,.
between, with the following dimensions:
BTU/HR= (151/2+12) × (12) x (8) x 1000
50
--52800 BTU/HR
If there is a door between the two rooms that can
be closed the calculation must be based only on the
room with the heater.
BTU/HR= (15_2) × (12) × (8) × 1000
50
=29760 BTU/HR
WARNING: If the area in which the heater may be operated is smaller than that defined as an
unconfined space or if the building is of unusually tight construction; provide adequate combustion and
ventilation air by one of the methods described in the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1, Section 5.3
or applicable local codes.
-6-
Unusually tight construction is defined as construction where:
a) Walls and ceilings exposed to the outside atmosphere have a continuous water vapor retarder with a
rating of 1 perm (6Xl0-"kg per pa-sec-m 2) or less with openings gasketed or sealed, and
b) Weather stripping has been added on openable windows and doors, and
c) Caulking or sealants are applied to areas such as joints around window and door frames, between
sole plates and floors, between wall-ceiling joints, between wall panels, at penetrations for plumbing,
electrical, and gas lines, and at other openings.
